7-4 FULL DAY REPORT/PM HALF REPORT FOR SATURDAY JUNE 30TH 2012

The report from the 7am full day boat is of good fishing although perhaps a tad relaxed from the past few days. Pool fish was just a shade under 9lbs with several more over 7lbs but we broke the streak of the double digit pool fish today. A fish that looked to threaten the ten pound mark made a dramatic charge for freedom at the net and won the battle. I suppose at times that is how the fluke out east get so big! One angler who was fishing a light spinning rod with a light buck tail excelled with the poor drift conditions encountered most of the day, he managed hi hook honors with 7 keeper fluke and close to ten nice sea bass which made for one heck of a stringer!! Longtime regular Norm also had a great catch today with six nice keepers and 7 good size sea bass and remember that Norm only keeps sea bass over 14 inches. A number of other anglers had several nice fluke and several nice sea bass apiece to take home. Some had less and in a few cases much less but that’s fishing. Later in the day the drift conditions got better and so did the fishing overall. Another great summer day of weather forecast for tomorrow and Capt. Rich will be set to sail at 7am on the Gail Frances.

Capt. Cory said the PM half day was excellent with a fast drift and fast fishing. Hi hook had four keeper fluke. Biggest fluke was 5lbs and there were a few nice sea bass mixed in along with plenty of shorts for lots of action. The rental rod rigs were the best producers of this evening’s trip. Next half day trip will set sail tomorrow morning at 8am aboard the Lady Frances.

EARLY SATURDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE JUNE 30TH 2012/ AWESOME FISHING WEATHER ON TAP FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE!!!

Both the combo and Night Striper trips are a go for tonight and there is still plenty of space available so if interested call the office to book a spot.

Capt. Mike reported a great turnout of half day fluke enthusiasts this morning but just a so so bite. Still a great refreshingly cool way to get out of heat for a few hours. A nice amount of shorts kept things interesting. Capt. Mike heads back out at 1pm for round 2 on the Lady Frances.

ANOTHER GOOD DAY BUT NOT EXACTLY A CRUSH ON THE 7-4/ GOOD HALF DAY FISHING TODAY!! REPORTS FOR FRIDAY JUNE 29TH 2012

Capt. Rich reported a good to very good day of fishing overall. A slower drift made things a bit more challenging than in past days regarding the fluke fishing although a respectable number were still boated and some anglers easily managed several nice keepers apiece and some did not. Capt. Rich said the biggest fish of the day was again at or just over ten pounds. For the score keeping crowd out there that is now at least four days of pool fish between 10 and 11.5lbs and for sure there are bigger ones than that to be caught out there!! Capt. Rich however reported the sea bass took up whatever slack the fluke left behind and some anglers just out and out crushed them. Sizes to nearly 5lbs and there were anglers who had double digit scores of big sea bass. Again the numbers per angler varied on the sea bass with some not doing as well as others but safe to say the majority of anglers aboard had enough fluke and or sea bass for a few good meals and many anglers had a lot more than that. The mates did not finish cutting until 5:30pm!! It was overheard that there was some discussion that I might say that today was the trip that the reading audience wishes they had been on but after talking to the crew it sounds like those days were Wednesday and Thursday of this past week. Nevertheless averaged out a very good day and Capt. Rich looks forward to more great summer weather and a new day of fishing tomorrow with the Gail Frances set to sail at 7am.

Capt. Mike reported a very strong day of half day fishing both trips with a much better show of keepers responding to a much better drift scenario. Sizes to 5lbs and a few hefty sea bass mixed in plus plenty of shorts both trips to keep things moving right along. Next brace of half days set for tomorrow with the Lady Frances set to sail at 8am and again at 1pm with Capt. Mike.

There was no combo trip or Striper trip tonight. Both trips will set sail tomorrow, Saturday Night at 7pm. Plenty of room so if interested please call the office to book a reservation for either one.

FRIDAY JUNE 29TH 2012 MORNING UPDATE

I was a bit surprised when I came in this morning to find there were so very few reservations for tonight’s combo trip. The squid fishing last weekend was some of the best of the season, if not the best!! The fin fishing, while not out of this world, was certainly nothing to sneeze at with some big porgies and jumbo sea bass plus some nice fluke including a few jumbos. If enough interest can be generated through the course of the day we will be going combo fishing tonight at 7pm. Plenty of room on tomorrow night’s combo as well. Call the office to make a reservation if interested.

Plenty of room as well on tomorrow night’s Striper trip. Capt. Ray will be set to sail at 7pm tomorrow night on the Lady Frances.

June 28th reports

Captain Mike reported a improved half day outing this morning. Anglers were treated to fluke up to 6 pounds and sea bass to 3 pounds. Some lucky people had up to 4 keepers a piece. The Lady Frances will set sail tomorrow morning at 8am.

Captain Rich reported yet another great day on the &am full day boat. A fast drift made for some fast fluking. There were quite a few limit catches with many more getting close to the 8 keeper mark. Pool honors went to 13 year old David from tompson CT with a 31inch fluke topping the scale at 11 pounds!!!! Lots of nice seabass to 5 pounds in the mix as well. Captain rich will set sail tomorrow morning at 7am.

Yet another Fluke and Sea Bass crush on the Gail Frances

First mate Chris reported another banner day with many limit fluke catches.  They also had 6 fish over 7 pounds with the star of the day tipping the scales at OVER 11 pounds!!! Lots of sea bass to over 5 pounds as well. All types of rigs worked. Captain rich will set sail tomorrow morning at 7am.

Captain Mike reported a good morning and afternoon half day. Some fluke and sea bass made it over the rail and in to the coolers. Lots of shorter fluke around to get the rods bent. The Half day fluke trips are great to have people of all ages get out on the water and enjoy some of our great local fishing. The boat will set sail tomorrow morning at 8am and again at 1pm

JUMBO FLUKE AND JUMBO SEA BASS CRUSH ON THE GAIL FRANCES WITH CAPT. RICH!!! HALF DAY REPORTS FOR TUESDAY JUNE 26TH 2012

Roger finally caved and went out on the 7am to 4pm full day trip today and reported the fishing was at times, almost stupid!! A good pick of nice fluke and big sea bass all day with a good hour and a half crush through the middle of the day. On the fluke side of things there were at least a couple limits including Sean from Ct who is a longtime regular, Sean also had a half dozen nice sea bass to go along with his fluke limit. Roger was limited out and had 9 nice sea bass to 4lbs to go along with his fluke limit to 5lbs. Roger stuck with whole squid or just squid and spearing (plain jane) all day. There was one other limit in the bow and a good number of anglers who had four to seven nice keepers apiece and upwards to a half dozen nice sea bass apiece to go along with. Thats rock star fishing!! Leaving with upwards to 15 to 18lbs of fillet is something to be proud of on any full day fluke/sea bass trip! Cin from NYC along with his son stuffed a cooler to overflowing with fluke to 7lbs and sea bass to over 5lbs!! Well done gentlemen!! Biggest fluke was a solid ten pounds(part of a double header that included a nice fat sea bass on the top hook!!)  and went to a gentleman who chose to remain anonymous. There were at least 20 other fluke over 4lbs today. A few big scup and a handful of good size blue fish to make sure there was never a dull moment. As much as whole squid was working today, those who knew their way around the spros also did quite well. Mylar and spiining rigs also were working today. Quite a few short fluke and short sea bass and some sea robins as well kept things busy. A great day of weather and an excellent day of fishing with anglers walking off the boat with nice big bulging bags of fillets. Weather the next several days looks just great and the Gail Frances will be back out at it tomorrow with Capt. Rich ready to set sail at 7am. All pics today provided courtesy of Roger.

Half day fishing was just okay today. Plenty of shorts to bend the rods at times but the number of keepers was a bit less than we had hoped for. Wind against tide this morning and then wind and tide together this afternoon but never in the right balances. Still some nice keeper fluke to 3.5lbs on both trips. A 4lb sea bass won the morning pool and there seemed to be an equal mix of keeper fluke and keeper sea bass. Next brace of half days set for tomorrow with Capt. Mike at 8am and again at 1pm. Remember if you want a double dose of half day fishing, you can go on the second half day for $15 less! Also tomorrow, Wednesday, is Family Day meaning 2 adults and 2 kids can sail for $120 with rods, a savings of $30!!

MONDAY MORNING UPDATE JUNE 25TH 2012/ STRIPER TRIP ADDED THIS COMING FRIDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHTS JUNE 29TH AND JULY 1ST!!!

Capt. Cory just announced that we will be adding a Striper trip this coming Friday and Sunday Nights. These trips will leave at 7pm and returns at 1am. The Friday and Sunday Night trips are not yet entered in the online reservation system so kindly call the office to make a reservation if interested in going Friday or Sunday Night. So to recap we will offer Night Bass fishing Friday Saturday and Sunday Nights at 7pm by reservation this coming holiday weekend.

Due to the weather the 7am to 4pm and morning half day did not make it out and the 1pm to 5pm will be cancelled for today. Next brace of half day trips will set sail tomorrow with the first one at 8am and the second at 1pm. Remember you can enjoy a very full day of fishing by doing back to back half days with a $15 discount on the second trip!! The 7am to 4pm full day trip will also be ready to set sail tomorrow morning at, of course, 7am with Capt. Rich. Fishing has been excellent and the weather tomorrow looks excellent so come on down!!

This pleased half day angler from today's 1pm outing displays her nice keeper fresh out of the net! Lady Frances with Capt. Mike
