Tuna/Cod trip
« on: Nov 07, 2018, 10:48 AM »
Anyone interested in getting a few guys together and hit a charter up for some Tuna or Cod this fall/winter? There are a bunch of options here in RI and a cod trip would be the cheaper of the two. I did a trip on the Seven B's two years ago in January and though the conditions were rough, the cod were everywhere. Saw someone drop one that was at least 25 lbs but thats what they get for dropping the rig down before the captain gave the go ahead.

If there is still time for tuna I might be interested depending on how they are being fished for.

Let me see what I can find. Would you be interested in popping for them?

Yup that's what I'd prefer...poppers or jigs.  I'm sure catching a gbt on bait is awesome but I want to feel a jig or popper get destroyed.

My days are limited (Sundays Mondays) but it is a good time getting a tuna on a popper;

I would not stick my nose up at a Cod trip either....

The head boats out of RI crushed the cod last winter. From talking to one of the captains they are hoping for more of the same this year. Iíve got some money put aside for a couple trips in Jan.

Yep, this was my thought. We should put a date on the calendar.

Sounds like we may have 3 or 4 takers for a cod trip. January was definitely great last year.

Toss out some dates.

I'd go with a bunch of guys from here for cod.  Really need to get a tuna!  Allan that video is awesome. I have a 20k stella for that.  Need a rod.

How many guys can go on the boat? I used to go to Glauster on Yankee fleet for years but have not gone in a while...must get cold in jan.
take a kid hunting and fishing, it's a lot better than leaving them on the streets!!

weekends would be better for me but i could possibly make a weekday work. the only key with the cod fishing is weather windows so it may be hard to set a date this early.

If we were to do a large charter it can hold around 70 people i believe but about 40 is what i topically see. Google frances fleet or the seven Bs. The other option is to get a 6 person charter.
