January Fishing remains Steady as the outside areas fill with herring. Fish chasing bait in January is always a good sign. When the bait remains steady in cold water it provides proof for a healthy ecosystem
Some days are easy to find fish in the same spots but as winter storms move through the bait can shift to new spots. Some days it takes a little looking around for the next trip.
Not a lot of wind this week put anglers on some fair waters for January. Large Pollock were the fish that brought anglers to the gunwale as arms ached and backs were sore. These winter time favorites along with a mix of others make for some great hot chowda on those cold days.
