Offseason Report

Report from Tuesday, January 17.

| New York | Virginia | North Carolina | Florida | Last Week's Report |

The report covers out-of-state saltwater fishing
from late fall through winter, New Jersey’s off-season.

New York
Point Lookout

Daily trips for cod fished the past couple of days, had the weather to sail, and the angling was kind of slow, scoring a few of the fish, on the party boat Captain Al, Capt. Tom Weiss said. The trips fished in 70- to 130-foot depths, and conditions weren’t bad for the angling. Weather was beautiful on the ocean on yesterday’s trip. The water’s been 42 degrees, getting somewhat cold, but still an okay temperature for cod fishing. A better catch of cod was nailed Friday aboard. The ocean held a good-sized swell that day, keeping fish from biting in shallower water close to shore. So the trip headed deeper, farther from shore, finding an area in 85 to 100 feet that gave up cod. Dogfish, ocean pout and blackfish, out-of-season in New York, also bit on the trips. The boat is this website’s only that sails for cod daily this season. The trips are running 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., and don’t delay going, because this is the peak time of year for the fishing. Though the angling was slower the past couple of days, Tom hopes something changes and the fishing kicks back in. See More Info. Call: 516-623-2248.
