Once again most of us woke up to a new coat of white. UGH! The good news is that after this storm, we may get a break. We have to keep believing that Spring is on its way. The extended forecast looks like the temps are going up and no new storms in the near future. The Lady Frances will once again get cleaned off and be ready to sail this weekend. Be sure to give the office a call to make a reservation. Fishing last weekend was anything but good BUT this weekend is a brand new chance to get back out there. The fishing back in January and early February, before all the storms, was rather good. So hopefully the fish will start biting again.
RI fishing regulations for the upcoming season will be out soon and we will keep you posted.
Captain Matt reported a slow day on the local cod grounds. The weather was nice but the water was very very cold. Captain Mike tried a different location then the day but the results were about the same. A few more keepers but less shorts then the day before. We are keeping an eye on the weather for the upcoming week and are hoping to find more fish on the upcoming trips. Please call the office and check on the weather for the upcoming week.
We are happy to report that we sailed this morning on our local cod trip. The weather finally let up after weeks of wind and snow. The weather was perfect today but the fishing was on the slow side. Captain Mike reported very cold water temperatures and lack of bait. He searched all around but only scratched up a handful of cod and a few dozen shorts.It was great to break the cabin fever and Captain Mike has a new plan tomorrow. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 5am for cod on the Lady Frances
It looks like we might get a few days without any storms, which is certainly good news!! As of right now, we are planning to sail on Saturday and Sunday at 5:00 a.m. The ice has broken up around the boats and the temps are warming up a little, at least out of the teens anyway. So give the office a call to give us your name, number and number of people in your party. The crew, and we know our customers, are anxious to get back out there.
Looking to finally break the cabin fever????? The weather looks great for the upcoming weekend and we are planning on sailing both days at 5am for cod. Please call the office and make a reservation
It’s been quite a few days since we have updated. We apologize for that. It seems the weather has been keeping everyone in hibernation. This has been, by far, one of the worst winters that any of us can remember. Winters always seem long but this one just won’t quit. Storm after storm. And extremely low temps. The boats, as of this post, are iced in at the dock, which hasn’t happened in many many years. A few folks have been calling and asking us when we are going to sail again. The answer is ????. Hopefully soon, but we need some warmer temps to start breaking up the ice around the boats. Like you, our crew is anxious to get back out there. Cabin fever has reached epic levels. So please just keep checking back with us to get an update on the weather conditions. In the mean time, stay warm and stay safe.
Captain Mike was happy to report that we were back out on the water after a long weather break. The fishing was slower but Mike was in search mode all day. A handful of keeper cook with a few dozen shorts in the mix. Some ling and cunners rounded out the catch. Mike was hoping to get out tomorrow but the snow storm seems to have sped up and we will not be fishing tomorrow. It looks like out next day should be Wednesday but please call and double check the weather.
Sorry folks, not much to report as of late. Storm after storm has kept us at the dock. It looks like we might get a break tomorrow, Wednesday February 4th. So give the office a call to leave your name, number and the number of people in your party.
We will not be sailing tomorrow do to the weather. The weather looks like we will be tied to the dock for the next few days. Please keep an eye out for our next sailing date.
There will be no trip, tomorrow January 29th. With the recent snowstorm, there is still quite a bit of clean up to be done. The upcoming weekend does not look promising, as far as the weather goes, but please check back.
