Yo Bert,

still cannot do Sunday, I am retuning from upstate NY. Sounds like you guys are right on the money this time. to get the trip in. Catch em up I can't wait to see your results.

You have Stainless Solvkroken jigs - correct?
If you want I can email you a detailed document on how I rig for Cod with Jigs. I do use a teaser about 14 to 18" above the jig. On the teaser hook, ( 5/0) we use a split ring to the hook eye with a barrell swivel, to take up the twisting pressure of two Cod fish.

Use your favorite plastic skirt ( I like Red or Purple) on the teaser hook. Fish for the doubles by getting jig back to them bottom after first hookup like we do on Sea Bass for multiples.

You will be double header fishing so get ready for them!!!
Captn Joe

you guys will have a great trip good luck!
I'm on this trip are we leaving 4 or 4:30 Most likely I'll be there at 3:30
Jig right at the bottom, and sharpen those hooks!, Cod are very
aggressive biters most times
Fished the Frances fleet out of RI. on Wednesday worked hard all day but fish where turned off after 4 days of that OLD ***** we call GAIL !
20 - 25 Knt wind and 5 to 7' sea didn't help needed 25oz jigs to even find bottom. fished block sound out to 20 miles only 1 other boat sailed that day . 4 fish for the boat:mad:

Yes nice weather I'm on this trip. Viking reported they had decent fishing today but not near the Block Island grounds they hit a few wrecks.
Viking Cod Saturday Jan 30

Capt Steve Jr reports from our sold out limited trip on the 105' Viking Star that we are having a phenomenal day so far. The boat is very close to its limit, and we should be underway pretty soon. The bite was slow in the dark but as soon as the sun came up it was bail job. It is all quality fish and Capt Steve Jr himself managed to catch his limit- all within 2hrs from 7am to 9am. There is a very strong full moon tide so it is hard to hold the bottom, but as soon as the anglers got the hang of it and switched to heavier lead, it was lock and load! The mates are already filleting coolers full of fish. Check back a little later for our pool winners.
