Almost a World Record.

Postby Spysar » Mon Aug 02, 2010 8:45 am

When I'm not plotting my next whitetails death, I like to go deep sea fishing on the Atlantic ocean. My friends and I have been doing it for years so we have some pretty good spots to go. For any given month we have different spots on the ocean, and different harbors to launch the boat from. We target different structure at different times of year. Just like Dan reads the topos for deer, we read the ocean charts for big fish.

Here are some pics from about a month ago. We launched in NH for this trip. A 25lb cod is considered big. My big cod of the day was 44lbs. We caught quite a few others too.

These next pics are from yesterday. We have a spot nobody fishes. There is a shipwreck there, the catch is, it's in 600 feet of water!! If your lucky, you get one shot to get your lure down there just as the boat drifts over the wreck.

Yesterday I caught 8 white hake. A few I didn't weigh, but I did weigh a few. I got a 25, 27, 30, 32, and a 45lber!!! The 45lber was my personal biggest. The wordl record is 46lbs, so mine was getting close! Here's some pics.

Here's a cusk I caught off the wreck in 06, it was the biggest cusk caught in Maine that year. It was 41" long and weighed 29lbs. A trophy cusk is one over 12lbs.

This wasn't on the wreck, but it's my biggest cod ever. Caught and released unharmed. 70lbs.

I don't know. I haven't checked into that. I could probably find a vacancy in line class, and outfit a rod and try and do it someday while I'm on the wreck.

Here's two trophy's I caught on two casts at the wreck. A 29lb pollack and a 15lb cusk.
