April 1 Cod and Haddock Charters on Stellwagen Bank

Capt. Rich Antonino
March 26, 2008
Stellwagen Bank - Saltwater Fishing Report

Need I say any more? Ok, I will. In April and May, the cod and haddock move into shallow water for some of the most fun action of the year. No 300 foot depths, no 24 oz weights, no 35 mile runs. We're running 16-23 miles (usually at 30-35 mph) and catching fish in 80-100 feet of water, often using 6 oz jigs and light tackle. The action is often non-stop. I love this time of year.

We've made some nice changes to the boat--I've added a bow pulpit and made the cockpit better for fishing--it was great before, wait until you see it.

Check out my website for a pile of new videos and I'll be having a leader's board of the largest fish of the year for each species--and prizes at the end of th season for the largest fish. This will be a great competition.

See you soon.

Target Species:

cod/haddock, then sea bass/porgy, then tuna/shark, then stripers/blues

More Fishing Reports:


We're the small charter specialists for private 1-4 person groups and shared charters. We fish where the fish are--cod/haddock on Stellwagen Bank, huge sea bass in Buzzards Bay, bluefin tuna on Stellwagen Bank, sharks off of Martha's Vineyard and Wildcat Knoll, Stripers off of Provincetown. We have a great website; visit us often and meet us as friends. We have lots of fun out there and cater to both the novice and veteran alike. Our rates are great and you don't have to get 6 people!!
