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

New York
Point Lookout

Cod fishing was pretty good in past days on the party boat Captain Al, Capt. Tom Weiss said. The fishing was generally improving, and more and more cod seemed to be showing up. Lots were throwbacks on yesterday’s trip, but a fair number were keepers on the outing. Shallow depths 50 to 75 feet fished best, and cod usually pull deeper and farther from shore as the ocean cools and winter goes on. But the water temp currently was 46 degrees, the same as a while now. Forty-two to 46 is ideal. The fish were clammed, and one angler tried jigging almost the whole trip a couple of days ago, but hooked none on a jig. Jigs can usually catch when baitfish like mackerel or herring are schooling the fishing grounds. No baitfish were seen there lately. But boats tied into mackerel, lots, closer to shore, in very shallow water 30 feet deep, just outside the inlet. Dog sharks have been no problem on the Captain Al’s trips. The boat is this website’s closest to New Jersey that fishes for cod daily each winter. The trips are sailing 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. See More Info. Call: 516-623-2248.
