We made out just fine with the late October storm. There was gust to 80mph in our area but the boats handled it like a champ. The win is still blowing and we will not be sailing tomorrow October 31st. The weather looks like it will calm down starting on Wednesday.
Captain Matt reported a very busy day on the cod grounds. The boat had a healthy turn out of enthusiastic angler who could not pass up the beautiful weather forecast. The morning started out a little one the slower side with the dogfish showing there green eyes. Once the dogs died down the scup and sea bass started coming over the rails. Many limits around the boats of scup over 3 pounds and seabass over 5. More cod then we have been seeing with a few anglers with 1-2. The cod were very spread out. Bait was the way to go with some spots only waiting second for bites. We will have no trip tomorrow due to the weather and Monday does not look good either.
WE WILL HAVE NO TRIPS TOMORROW DUE TO THE WEATHER.MONDAY AND TUESDAY ARE LOOKING QUESTIONABLE AS WELL. PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE TO CHECK ON ALL FUTURE TRIPS.
Capt Richie reported a little bit of a picky day as far as the cod were concerned. A few nice ones came over the rails, with the biggest a little shy of 25 lbs. The scup were everywhere and you could easily get your limit if you so desired. Seabass weren’t quite as plentiful as they have been but nonetheless still enough keepers to keep anglers busy throughout the day, and even a few folks with their limit.
Capt Mike reported that Tautog continues to improve. Each day seems to be getting better and better. A few less seabass on that trip today as well. But they did have a few keeper codfish, which is always a bonus. Biggest Tautog was around 7lbs.
Our Cod and Seabass trip is sold out for tomorrow. And we will have NO Tautog trip on Saturday.
Sunday’s weather looks questionable, so be sure to call on Saturday to get an update.
TOMORROW’S COD AND SEABASS TRIP IS SOLD OUT.
Both boats are out today, and we will have a full report after 4:00 p.m.
An UPDATE for Saturday October 28th. We will only have the Cod and Seabass trip and reservations are a must. So, again NO Tautog trip for Saturday October 28th. Just one boat, for Cod and Seabass. And please call for reservations for that trip.
Captain Mike reported an okay day on the local tog grounds. The weather was less then ideal with periods of down pours and wind that blew hours later then forecasted. Those who did stick it out at the rail got some close to home black fish action. It was not hot and heavy action but some did end up with 5 keeper tog to 7 pounds. The sea bass did show their faces with many people getting close to limits. We are planning on sailing both boats tomorrow morning at 6am. We are keeping an eye on the weekends weather. Please check in for updates regarding the weekend schedule.

Many of you have asked where Roger has been the last couple of weeks, We sadly report that Roger, our valuable office employee, has moved on from the Frances Fleet. We wish him well in his future endeavors. His extensive fishing knowledge and informative fishing reports will be greatly missed here at the Frances Fleet among many other things. He made alot of friends here at the Point, customers that he waited on behind the counter in the morning or fished alongside on the boats. As well as his fellow employees. Wishing him all the best!
Capt and Crew reported a good day on the cod and seabass boat. Plenty of seabass limits and all the porgies that anyone wanted. Some nice cod over the rails as well, pool winner was around 20 lbs. A few anglers had 2-3 cod apiece along with their seabass and scup.
No trips tomorrow because of the weather. Will get a weather report for Wednesday, so be sure to call back Tuesday for Wednesday’s trips.
Captain Chris reported a very good day on the sea bass grounds. Nearly a full boat limit of sea bass to 5 pounds.
