Cod trips were docked in the past week on the party boat Captain Al, Capt. Tom Weiss said. No anglers showed up to fish in rough weather, including cold. Last week, photos on the boat’s Facebook page showed ice covering the harbor that Monday, after that Sunday’s deep freeze. That Sunday was the coldest day of the year so far. But on that Tuesday, the page included photos showing that the boat was used to break up the ice and was available to sail. No customers showed up, but the crew will shape up to sail this weekend. Trips will now fish Fridays through Sundays, instead of daily like previously. That’s a usual schedule change this time of year. The harbor is near the ocean, and ice is rarely an issue at Point Lookout. Besides, the boat is built to break ice, and Capt. Al’s, the boat’s namesake’s, son has a tug boat docked next to the party boat. The son uses the tug to make sure no ice prevents the Captain Al from reaching the ocean. The Captain Al is this site’s nearest boat to New Jersey that targets cod weekly. When cod are in, the Captain Al fishes for them. Otherwise, the trips fish wrecks for ling, cod and whatever bites. The trips are sailing 6 a.m. to 4 a.m. every Friday through Sunday. See More Info. Call: 516-623-2248.
