Friday April 18th
Captain Matt called in to say that Cod fishing was better today. The LADY FRANCES sailed with a very light crew today. They had a few more keepers and shorts in the mix today. The fish were nice green fish so it looks like a new batch of fish maybe moving in. The water has warmed up a little and is much clearer than it has been. The LADY FRANCES will be sailing for cod tomorrow morning at 7 am. We will not be sailing on Easter Sunday
The Lady Frances is scheduled to set sail tomorrow morning, Friday April 18th at 7:00 a.m. Both Friday and Saturday look like a go. We finally are getting a break with the high winds we have had all week. The last trip out was slow, but tomorrow is another day. Reminder, that we do not sail on Easter Sunday.
Captain Rich sailed this past sunday and saw a very slow trip. The fish that were caught earlier in the week had moved on. The water temperatures are on the rise and more bait is showing up. The water was still very dirty from the ground swell. The weather this week looks like we will be tied to the dock till at least Friday. Please call the office to make a reservation on any upcoming trips.
The cod trip for tomorrow, Saturday April 12th is cancelled. But the Lady Frances is all ready to set sail on SUNDAY morning at 7:00 a.m. The weather looks beautiful. Give the office a call to make a reservation. We have had some encouraging reports within the last couple days, so grab your gear and come on down. The office will open at 6:00 a.m for ticket sales. Hope to see you then!
The weather for the weekend looks good and we are planning on sailing both Saturday and Sunday for codfish. We have not been out lately but there are reports of a body of fish showing up south of Block Island. We are very eager to get out and find out whats out there.
Captain Rich was at the helm this past weekend for the local cod trip. The weather was nice and the water was clearing but water temps were freezing. Captain Rich thinks this was the issue for lack of fish coming up. Rich pulled out the little black book but could not get the fish to bite. We are still planning on sailing weather permitting every day except Tuesday and Thursday. Please call the office and make a reservation for any upcoming trip.
The Lady Frances is sailing tomorrow, Wednesday April 2nd. at 7:00 a.m. It looks like a beautiful day to be on the water. Grab your gear and head on down! The office will be open at 6:00 a.m. for ticket sales. FYI Our website currently says that the boat sails at 6:00 a.,m. but it is actually 7:00 a.m. We will get that corrected ASAP.
Just a reminder that we have changed our schedule for the month of April. We will be sailing Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting, at 7:00 a.m.
As of right now Wednesday’s weather looks great, so give us a call to make your reservation or you can also do it online. Let’s hope April gives us great weather and great fishing!!
Captain Matt reported slow fishing on the local cod grounds. The ground swell was larger then we were hoping for. Some fish still around in the swell but the fish hard a greyish color from hunkering down. Some perch mixed in with the cod. We will not be sailing tomorrow. WE do hope that April bring some nicer weather.
We are keeping an eye on the upcoming weekends weather. Satudays weather look OK and we plan on sailing for codfish at 5am. Please call the office and make a reservation for any upcoming trip.
