Friday October 20th

Capt Richie reported that the cod trip produced a few nice codfish, all the scup that an angler wanted and of course plenty of “protected” seabass. A few bluefish in the mix as well and a few bothersome other species that are never a wanted sight. The weather proved to be a little bumpier than they predicted, so all anglers weren’t at the rail, but those that stuck it out managed to have a fish few to take home of one or two different species. Both boats are scheduled for tomorrow, leaving the dock at 6:00 a.m. The office opens at 5:00 a.m. for ticket sales.

Wednesday October 18th

Capt Mike reported a slow day on the Tautog trip. Water is still a little warm for that species. But nonetheless, a few keepers still managed to get into the boat. And enough throwback tautog to keep anglers busy throughout the day.

Capt Richie reported a very productive day on the cod boat. A good number of cod were caught, with the biggest around 15-20 lbs. All the jumbo scup that anyone wanted. We had more than a limit of seabass on the boat but unfortunately they had to be thrown back to be caught another day. That season opens again this coming Sunday 10/22. A couple keeper fluke today and a bluefish or two rounded out the catch.

No Tautog trip tomorrow, Thursday October 19th. Our next trips will be Friday October 20th. Both the cod trip and the Tautog trip. Both boats sail at 6:00 a.m. Friday morning.

Sunday October 15th

Captain Mike reported a decent start to our black fish season. A light crowd could not wait any long for the long awaited season to start. The day started out on the slower side with water temperatures in the mid 60′s. High hook had 3 keepers with the pool the pool fish being around 5 pounds. There was plenty of action towards the end of the day on the short’s as well as jumbo knot head seabass that were all released. A few scup, one keeper fluke and a cod fish rounded out the catch.

First mate Greg reported a much improved day on the cod grounds. The rain seemed to scare some anglers away but those who stuck it out were treated to a great day of mixed bag fishing. High hook honors went to James who also took pool honors with a fine 15 pound cod. James ended the day with 5 keeper cod and a pile of jumbo scup. Plenty of big scup in the mix and as many colossal seabass that were all returned. There will be no trip tomorrow and we are keeping an eye on monday’s weather as well. For any and all info please call the office or explore our website.


The Local 42 Cod charter reported a good day of fishing on the cod grounds. There reported very similar action to the full day boat with good mixed bag fishing. We have some select charter days left before the end of the year. IF you would like to book a private full day trip please call and ask to speak to Cory or Tammy.

Friday October 13th

First mate Danny reported lock and load fishing for big scup to 3 lbs today along with all the catch and release sea bass fishing most anglers could handle. There was just a few cod fish taken today and one lucky angler had two of them. The biggest cod weighed ten pounds. One blue fish and one nice fluke and one or two ocean perch today. Capt. Rich will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7 am for cod and scup aboard the Gail Frances.

Just a reminder folks that ON SUNDAY BOTH BOATS WILL LEAVE AT 6 AM!!


Wednesday October 11th

Capt Richie reported that his small group of anglers today had all the scup they wanted and a few nice cod to take home. Regular Mike M. was high hook with three cod. Lots of seabass that had to be thrown back for another day. And that day can’t come soon enough!

We WILL be starting our Tautog season on Sunday October 15th. If you check the calendar on our website, it doesn’t show up because we were planning on tuna fishing this weekend. But that season has been cut short. So again we are Tautog fishing starting this weekend. Just give us a call if you would like to make a reservation.

Wednesday Oct 10th

We are very said to say that we are throwing in the towel for the rest of our tuna season. 2017 was one for the books but not in a good way. Some of the worst weather we have had in our season made for some terrible fishing. We canceled more trips then we sailed on and when we could get out the weather was less then ideal . We would like thank everyone who sailed with us and everyone who tried to sail. We are hoping for a much better 2018 season.
