I fished yesterday with Kil's group on the American Classic ( Wash's)
out of Lynn Mass. We left early around 3.15am for a long 3 hour ride out past the Stellwagen Bank. We fished in deep water.
The fishing was absolutely fantastic, drop and reel all day except for a few lonely hitless moments.
Most of the fish I caught were on Lav Jigs, but they hit anything put down there, including Cape May Tackle new Hammered Jigs.
We all easily limited out on our 10 Cod Limit, and many of us brought back plenty of Pollack.
Joining Kil's regulars, ( Yong , Park & Choi & crew) were Bass Barn guys - Getsome & Deep Defiance and several other members & readers.
I really did not count, but judging on how good my arms feel today I must have caught over 50 Cod fish yesterday.
The ones I kept were all around 8 to 10lbs. All of my released fish swam right back to the bottom.
First I would like to thank Kil Song, for our continued amazing trek for world class fishing. Kil and I have been fishing together ( 5 years)on either his arranged trips or mine, and we have seen some fine fishing together. I know I am lucky to be able to join him a few times a year to fish.
If any of you readers need anything, anything in regards to Jigging
, he is the go to guy for Tackle, Jigs, Poppers, Rods, Reels and serious top of the line terminal tackle. Everything, I mean everything, is field tested and must pass Kil's muster, before he will offer it for sale. His shop is an amazing place to visit.
Second I would like to thank Capt Jim Walsh, I have fished for over 40 years, and he is the only skipper I can say is the best at keeping on roving schools of fish. This guy can fish with the best of them, and he knows how to use his Sonar to stay on the schools of fish. Drop - jig - once or twice, hookup & reel fish in all day, it just does not get any better.
If anyone wants to join their Cod trips, I highly recommend this boat and its fine crew. Its about 4 hour drive from the greater NYC area.
I know we all had a great time, but judging by the smile on his face all day long - no one had as much fun as Mike Spinelli - Deep Defiance here, he cranked in alot of fish as did Getsome too..
The pool fish was a 29lb Cod caught by ??? ( sorry forgot your last name John)
