Looking around for some pollock or cod but no luck.

Hey Gary and all, tried for a couple hours a day or more for a few days early last week. Finally caught one on Tuesday! Always from shore near Sheet Harbour. Had much better luck a few years ago. Used to get lots easily. Super hard last year and this. Bought some of Gary's lures yesterday and will try again in a few days and let you know.

Hi folks, I am a PhD student interested in Atlantic mackerel and I love seeing the updates on here! Looking forward to seeing what happens this upcoming 2022 season. Gary - I see that you contribute most of the posts here. I would love to chat with you more about analyzing these data to get some long-term trends. Please email me at [email protected] if you're interested.
