STELLWAGEN BANK,MA-Cod Fishing 3/3/01

An open weather window on Friday and Saturday allowed
three of B-Fast’s vessels, JANET B, DECISIVE and ALLIE,
to fish Stellwagen’s shoal water prior to the March Blizzard.
Gerry Hydrusco’s group from Belle Mead, NJ fished as part
of a split-charter with Karl Cantillo’s group from Amityville,NY.
Capt. Scott found the "market" cod feeding on herring and
sandeels in 100-120 ft of water on the north end of the bank.
Jigs and teasers produced best yielding doubles of cod in the
8-12 pound class with a few pollock mixed in. On Saturday,
Capt. Al on the JANET B and Capt. Tim on the ALLIE guided
two groups Jersey anglers. Both Donny Ibarguen’s group from
Sayreville,NJ and Julio Vega’s group from Perth Amboy, NJ make
annual pilgrimages north for Massachusett’s codfish. With
coolers full to the max with cod filets as a result of their best
trip in years, both groups headed to the Garden State threating
to return in a few weeks. B-Fast Charters presently has five
vessels available in March and will have ten charter boats
between 31 and 42 feet working the bank starting in April.
