On Saturday, June 25th Capt Dave Auger and myself ran the season's first Iron Man charter to Fippennines Ledge.
We departed at 0330 and returned at 2030. In between those hours the five anglers and crew rode four hours plus, experienced a non stop bite for over eight hours while on the ledge and returned home after another 4 hour ride.
The fishing was frantic from the first minute jigs hit the bottom with pollack, cod and haddock inhaling both jigs and bait.
When gutted fish filled all the coolers and ripping tub, the deck was utilized to hold the overflow.
With over 450 lbs of fillet cut the trip was deemed a huge success.
We are doing it again in a couple weeks and hopefully we make it to the halibut grounds which we didn't do this time.FULL REPORT
