of 2005 Captain Whit set up a little work shop to make "Fred
Burkett" cod jigs.
Burket's daughter Jeanette was kind
enough to trust Whit and I with her dad's famous "Burkett cod fish jig" mold, when
he passed on last winter. Fred
was our elder statesmen on the "India Marie"
going offshore cod fishing with us on his 87, 88, 89 and 90
birthdays... Many of you know about Fred's
famous 16 oz cod jig because it was used on the "Bunny
Clark" as well as the
Marie" for years and has landed literally hundreds of
Maine State trophy
Captain Whit has
named his jig..... The Burkett
"All American" Cod jig. In honor of Fred's patriotic effort in
the Pacific during WWII. Fred like my dad was a member of the greatest
generation. True american patriots and great story tellers!
The initial offering
price is $7.50 US.(Minimum lots of 3) (How I
hate to see the value of our dollar declining so fast!) But
a super value "for a fine cod jig! You can e- mail Whit with any
jig orders @ Satch

insurance is included. Max.three days!
During the winter
months November 15th thru March 15 our

barely keep up with the demand to furnish enough jigs for our own
offshore vessels. While we are very happy to accept
orders via e mail at any time.. your jig order will have be placed on a
first come first served basis for delivery after November 15th! Captain Whit and I are both operating
our own boats the "Gath III and

remaining jigs that we have on hand can only be
purchased aboard our vessels during the busy summer fishing
