100+ whales and tons of cod
<p>Today....looking around we must have been doing something right...My customer at one point said "look at the other boats--we're the only ones catching fish!" It was cool but true for a while---we were both using spinning rods and having a blast. I had an Okuma VS80 while he brought his own Okuka VS55. It was small, but effective. At one point, I took 6 casts and caught 6 consecutive keepers. 5 of them were cod and one was a 12 pound pollack. Very nice fight on spinning gear. Why did Luhr Jensen stop making the Deep Stinger!! Aaarghh.
We took our time getting home---Joe took a nice nap in the sun while sitting on the swingback chair in the cockpit. Not rushing around at all--amazing! The mackerel were in thick outside of Green Harbor, so I dropped off my customer and went back fishing for bait--loading up almost 200 mackerel for bait for later...all nice tinker mackerel!! Wonderful. I heard today that the striper bite in Buzzards Bay is amazing!! I want to get out there on Monday in the great weather if you're interested in fishing, we can fish Buzzards Bay for stripers, black sea bass, and porgy. Or, we can beat up on some more cod, haddock, and pollack!! Give us a call. Still can't believe I do this for a living, Rich Antonino, Black Rose Fishing Charters

Bio: I'm Capt. Rich Antonino and I specialize in small private charters in Massachusetts from April-November. We fish for cod/haddock from Green Harbor and Plymouth. We fish Buzzards Bay for sea bass, porgy(scup), fluke, stripers/blues. We love shark fishing and tuna fishing and our boat is perfect for that. It's fast--we cruise at over 30 mph and can hit 40 mph. The boat has a full cabin and more fishing space than most 6-packs! We have a blast.
