Stripers have been abusing me of late so I figured I should get my butt on my close-in, offshore cod humps to take advantage of our "generous" recreational 1 fish @ 21" a day that runs Sept 15 - 30. Today was the first day that the wind, swells, tide and my schedule aligned since the 15th so I hightailed it out this AM.

Got to my spots BUT they were loaded with mackerel and couldn't get my jig past them to the bottom. I was chased off of 4 bumps I fish by the macks. Looked at the GPS display and saw a likely spot that I've never tried. Got there and there were macks on it too, BUT I finally got the jig and teaser past the macks to the bottom. I jigged once and was rocked by a big hit and brought up this lovely 26" cod with his little brother. The codlin went home to Mommy, but big brother came home with me for dinner...
