Friday June 30th


The report from Capt. Mike on the morning half day was of excellent fishing for sea bass with some really nice jumbos coming aboard and even a few limit catches recorded. The fluke were elusive however. The report from first mate Bobby on the afternoon trip was that a few really nice fluke to 5 lbs were caught among a nice bunch of keeper sea bass. Some action with short sea bass and small sea robins too.

Two half day trips on tap tomorrow with the first setting sail at 8 am and the second at 1pm aboard the Admiral Frances.

The full day Fluke/Sea Bass boat will sail at 7 am with Capt. Rich aboard the Gail Frances. A recent picture from a full day trip aboard the Gail Frances shows the size of the fluke which have been coming over the rail.


We are night fishing tomorrow night by reservation. Call the office to make a reservation.


Thursday June 29th


Capt. Rich reported an okay day of fishing for a very light crowd of fishers. There were two limit catches noted. Just a few sea bass mixed in. Two fish in the 6 lb range fought it out for bragging rights. A number of the fluke taken today were in the 3.5 to 4 lb range as well. Some shorties in between the keepers. Tomorrow will not feature a full day but the Gail Frances will sail at 8 am and again at 1pm for the half days.

Capt. Mike reported a very solid morning of half day fishing with some real quality fluke hitting the deck of the Admiral Frances. Biggest taken on a rental rod by a young lady not in the pool, a big fluke estimated by Capt. Mike and crew to be at least 9 lbs!! A good number of nice size sea bass too for the fishers aboard and some action with short fluke and short sea bass. The afternoon by contrast had only a handful of keeper fluke and a respectable amount of nice sea bass. Some shorties as well. Two half days on tap tomorrow with the first set to sail at 8 am and the second at 1pm aboard the Gail Frances.


Wednesday June 28th

Capt. Rich reported a decent day of fishing. A bit of a late bite but a strong finish always bests a strong start! There were some fluke limits and some quality fish with the best of the lot threatening the 8 lb mark. A nice bunch of sea bass as well for the fishers aboard with a few sea bass limits noted. Some shorts of both species. All in all a very respectable day of fishing and much improved over yesterday. Capt. Rich will set sail tomorrow morning at 7 am aboard the Gail Frances for the full day.

Capt. Matt reported both the morning charter and afternoon open boat half day trips were solid today aboard the Admiral Frances. A nice mix of keeper fluke and keeper sea bass on both and more and more short fluke starting to show up along the local beaches helping to keep rods bent and fishers entertained. Two half days on tap tomorrow with the Admiral Frances set to sail at 8 am and again at 1pm.


Tuesday June 27th

Capt Richie reported a slow pick today on the full day boat. Quality was the name of the game, as fish topped the scales upwards to 10 lbs. But the numbers just weren’t there, unfortunately. A few bluefish in the mix. Seabass were again a little sparse. Tomorrow is another day.


Tuesday June 27th

Capt Matt reported a “fair” morning half day. More seabass today than they have had on recent trips but only a handful of fluke. Pool winner was in the 5 lb range. Reminder: There is no half day morning trip on Wednesday June 28th. Only the half p.m. trip tomorrow and there is plenty of room.

Also Whale watching will not be starting this week as planned. Our first trip is scheduled to be Tuesday July 4th.

Monday June 26th

A few updates to this week’s schedule.

We will have NO half day morning trip on Wednesday June 28th. Again,  NO 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon trip on Wednesday June 28th. The afternoon is still scheduled to go and there is plenty of room.

Also, we will not be starting our whale watch trips tomorrow as originally planned. No Whale Watch trip tomorrow, Tuesday June 27th or Thursday June 29th and Friday June 30th. Please check back as to the schedule after that. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.


Monday June 26th

Capt Richie reported that today’s full day trip had a nice bunch of fluke upwards to 7lbs. The seabass were pretty sparse though, a handful of keepers and some throwbacks. A few bluefish made it into the boat as well. Next trip tomorrow morning. Office opens at 6:00 a.m.

Capt. Matt reported respectable half days today. A fair amount of keeper fluke up to 5lbs. Both trips on tap for tomorrow.

Sunday June 25th

Capt. Matt reported much better fluke fishing today. Like Thursday it was all about QUALITY!!! Longtime customer and exceptional fisher Sandra Tompkins from Westerly RI took the pool with a fine slab that tipped the scales at just under 9 lbs and Sandra along with her husband Cyrus combined for 7 big fluke and one sea bass today. There were at least a half dozen other limit catches and the vast majority of the fluke were over 4lbs with many in the 6-7 lb range and a handful larger in the 8-8.5 lb range. A few handfuls of keeper sea bass and a few handfuls of short fluke rounded out the catching for the trip. There was little to no drift most of the day so buck tail jigs reigned supreme although no specifics were given in regards to color or specific type. As much as fishing was much improved in the fluke department today, it is only fair to say that today was certainly a case of the haves and have nots. The fish were just not spread out that well around the boat. Anyways we are encouraged by the better report overall. Capt. Rich will set sail at 7 am aboard the Gail Frances.

A beauty of a fish Sandra!


The morning half day charter for the VIP Lyon’s group was punctuated with superb summer weather and calm seas. Lots of catching with sea robins and short fluke keeping fishers busy. Not a whole lot of keeping. The afternoon trip, in contrast, saw a big uptake in keepers for both sea bass and fluke with some really nice sea bass being taken by fishers. Also plenty of short fluke and some sea robins kept fishers busy at the rails. Two half days on tap tomorrow with the first set to sail at 8 am and the second at 1pm with Capt. Matt aboard the Admiral Frances.

Last night’s bass trip was slow. The pool fish was a 20 lbr. Next Bass trip will sail Wednesday July 5th at 7 pm by reservation.


Saturday June 24th

The morning half day was good with nice sea bass and some fluke. The afternoon trip for whatever reason was much slower. Only an afternoon half day trip tomorrow leaving at 1pm. Call to make reservations if interested in going, the weather looks great!

Capt. Rich found a full boat limit of sea bass for his patrons but the fluke kept a low profile. Biggest fluke around 5 lbs and biggest sea bass around 3 lbs. Capt. Matt sets sail tomorrow morning at 7 am aboard the Gail Frances.


Friday June 23rd

Captain Rich reported a very tough day on the flukes grounds. It was like someone flipped a light switch from the day before. Only a small handful of fluke and sea bass were caught. We tried lots of spots but everywhere we went was more of the same. Tomorrow is another day and we will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am.

First mate Danny said the morning half day was a slow pick. A couple, near 5 lb fluke, battled it out for the pool. A few throwbacks and a few seabass in the mix.



A few things to note :We will not have a morning half day trip scheduled for Sunday morning. We have plenty of room on the afternoon. We will also not have a morning half day trip on Wednesday June 28th, but will have a trip that afternoon.
