The party boat Captain Al fished Saturday and Sunday, Capt. Tom Weiss said. That was after the boat was in the yard about a week for maintenance to prep the vessel for the new fishing season. Some cod were copped on the trips, inshore, in 60 to 80 feet of water. About half the fish hooked were keepers, and half were throwbacks. The ocean was warming, the reason the fish were found inshore. In winter, trips aboard find cod in the deep, because of warmer water there. The water on the trips was 43 or 43.5 degrees, a little colder than two weeks ago. Lots of bergals bit, and quite a few out-of-season blackfish hit and were released. Trips are sailing 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Friday through Sunday. If cod are in, the trips target them. Otherwise, wrecks are fished for cod, ling or whatever bites. In winter, the boat is this website’s nearest to New Jersey that fishes for cod daily. The trips sail every Friday to Sunday in late winter to early spring. See More Info. Call: 516-623-2248.
