Gloucester cod & haddock fishing is underway big time – as these anglers  from Lake Erie, New York will attest.  The  hearty group fished both Saturday and Sunday, reeling in a boatload of cod and haddock each day.

Sunday’s catch of cod and haddock aboard Tuna Hunter.

The catch was was offshore, but the long trip was worthwhile on both days. Cod were hitting mainly jigs, with the usual fluctuations throughout the day and a great late-day bite to top off the fishbox.
