Capt Matt reported a pretty decent day on the full day fluke and seabass trip. Only a handful of anglers on this picture perfect weather day. First mate Gregg reported a few limits around the boat of both species. Pool fish was a fluke weighing in around 7 lbs.
All trips on tap for tomorrow. Two half day trips, a full day and also whale watching in the afternoon.
Captain Matt was at the helm of the half day trips and reported mixed results. The morning was very very slow with only a small hand full of keepers coming over the rail. The report was that the water was very dirty. The afternoon was a much different story with sea bass flying over the rails with most anglers having very close to a limit of keepers. We will have 2 half day trips tomorrow at 8am and 1pm. We will also have the full day from 7-4.
SUNDAY’S COD TRIP IS CANCELLED!!! ONLY AUGUST 20TH STILL HAS SPACE!!
NO FULL DAY FLUKE/SEA BASS TOMORROW, SUNDAY JULY 30TH!!
Half day trips are on for tomorrow, Sunday July 30th. The Gail Frances will sail at 8 am and again at 1 pm for fluke and sea bass.
The night bass trip is cancelled. Next night fishing trip is set for Wednesday Night at 7 pm by reservation. Last night’s bass trip left much to be desired outside of a few handfuls of keeper sea bass and one scup. Hopefully this coming week is better.
All trips were cancelled today due to the very windy conditions and rough seas.
NO WHALES AND NO FULL DAY FLUKE, OR 1 PM HALF DAY TOMORROW, SATURDAY JULY 29TH!!!!
Capt. Mike reported an outstanding morning half day today. There were two or three fluke limits to go along with all the good size sea bass. The afternoon half day was more punctuated by gorgeous weather and lots of smaller fluke but some nice keepers and a few sea bass came aboard. The morning half day trip is on tomorrow. Capt. Mike will set sail at 8 am aboard the Lady Frances.
Capt. Matt and Capt. Rich reported the full day fluke and sea bass boat found an easy boat limit of good size sea bass to four pounds. Fluke numbers were solid but not quite up to yesterday’s tally. Still one guy had a limit catch and three others at least were right behind. Longtime regular customer and exceptional rod handler Hahn from East Longmeadow Mass took the pool with a fine 7 lb slab. As stated above no full day trip tomorrow due to the weather.
Whale Watching today was simply marvelous! Cooperative Hump Back Whales and loads of frolicking dolphins put on a great show for the whale enthusiasts aboard the Lady Frances today! Next Whale Watch Tuesday at 1 pm by reservation. As stated above tomorrow is canceled due to the weather.
Many people have been calling and inquiring about the weekend forecast and whether or not the trips are cancelled or not. We will make decisions about the OPEN BOAT trips for Saturday, today at 3:30 p.m.. It currently does not look favorable to go but they have changed the forecast numerous times over the last couple days, so we really need to wait until the latest forecast that we can get.
As far as the sold out cod trip for Sunday and any other trips on Sunday, we will not make that decision until Saturday morning at the earliest.
Thank you for your patience.
TONIGHT’S BASS TRIP IS CANCELLED!!
Capt. Rich reported a very good day of fluke and sea bass fishing. Much much better numbers of keeper fluke today with some quality jo fish taken. Longtime regular customer and exceptional rod handler Eugene from Stamford CT easily limited out on both the fluke and sea bass and took the pool with fine 7 lb plus slab. There were other fluke limits and also just about a full boat limit of sea bass with some really nice specimens in the 4 to 5 lb range according to first mate Greg. Just a few nice scup mixed in today. Weather looks fine tomorrow and the Gail Frances will be set to sail with Capt. Rich at 7 am.
The morning half day provided fishers with some nice size sea bass and nice fluke. The afternoon half day was excellent with lots of big sea bass bending rods for fishers along with some quality fluke. Most of the fluke keepers were in the 4 lb range. Congrats to longtime customer and excellent rod handler Mike from Providence who took the pool with a fine 5 lb fluke. Two half days on tap tomorrow with the first at 8 am and the second at 1 pm.
Captain Mike reported solid half day fishing on the beach today. The morning trip saw 18 keeper flukes to 6 pounds. There was plenty of sea bass to go around with some anglers reported to catch a limit in 2 casts. The afternoon was a little slower on the fluke but the big sea bass came out to play. Some real bombers in the 5-6lb range. We will have two half day trips tomorrow at 8am and 1pm.

Captain Matt reported a slow day on the full day boat. It was almost too nice of a day with next to 0 drift for most of the day. A few anglers has 2-3 each but over all it was very slow. Some sea bass in the mix. Tomorrow is another day and we will be sailing at 7am on the Gail Frances.
Capt. Richie reported a day full of seabass. An easy boat limit which kept the rods bent for the anglers on board. We had a few younger kids on the boat today so it was nice to see them smile ear to ear when reeling in a nice fat seabass. Fluke were a little lacking but anglers still managed to wrangle in a dozen or so keepers. Next trip tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m., again with Capt Rich at the helm. Both half day trips on tap for tomorrow as well. Looks to be a picture perfect weather day.
NO trips today due to weather conditions. As of right now, all trips are back on track for tomorrow.
Capt. Matt reported once again the alligator size blue fish took over on the night bass trip. Pure pandemonium with big blue fish bending rods up and down and all around the the rails of the Lady Frances. A few good bass snuck in there as well with two of the fish in the 30 plus pound range. Next night trip will sail Wednesday Night at 7 pm aboard the Lady Frances by reservation.
Morgan G and her family enjoyed the night and winning the pool made it even better. Way to go!!
Captain Mike reported vastly improved morning fishing on the half day trip. Many of nice sea bass to a solid 4 pounds came over the rail. It seemed like the extra drift really helped the catching numbers today. A small hand full of fluke in the mix as well. The afternoon saw around the same action as the morning. We are schedule to sail on both half day trips tomorrow but the afternoon is looking questionable right now. Please make sure to call tomorrow and check the status of the trips.
Captain Rich reported an OK day of fishing. The sea bass were out in full force with anglers reporting to catch limits in just 2 cast in the first drift. The fluke fishing was on the slower side with more shorts then keepers. WE WILL HAVE NO FULL DAY TRIP TOMORROW DUE TO THE FORECASTED WEATHER CONDTIONS
