Thursday May 31st

Captain Mike reported the squid fishing was a little on the slower side last night. We think it had something to do with the full moon and the tides. Those who fished hard caught nearly 3/4 of a bucket with others only a had a few. We are planning on sailing Friday and Saturday night at 7pm by reservation.

 

Captain Rich reported a strong day on the fluke grounds. No wind and all tide drift made for some hungry fluke. Bucktails were on the back burner today and the longer rigs really shined. High hooks went home with limits and many people very close. Pool fish was around 9 pounds. Plenty of fish that were just short to keep the rods bent. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am on the Lady Frances.

Tuesday May 29th

Captain Matt called in to report a decent day on the full day boat. He deceived to head back to the east with the wind forecast, but the wind never came. The day over all was fantastic day to be on the water. The morning started off with nearly perfect drift conditions. Bucktails and long leader rigs both produced well. When the tide eased the bucktails were king yet again. High hooks had limits. Our next sailing will be tomorrow at 7am on the Lady.

Monday May 28th

Captain Greg reported a decent morning on the half day fluke trips.  After a windy few days it finally dropped out and we picked away a  some nice keeper fluke close to home. High hook had 2 keeper and plenty of people went home with dinner. Out next half day trip will be on Saturday at 8am.

Captain Rich reported a better day on the fluke boat. The wind died out and then sun came out make for a nice day on the water. The drift today was much more manageable then the 2 knots we dealt with all weekend long. High hook had a limit of keepers. There was also a good showing of sea bass that were all returned. This is a good sign and the count down to the sea bass opener has started. Our next trip will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am on the Lady Frances

Sunday May 27th

Captain Greg reported another decent night on the squid boat.We had a great crew of anglers on for the holiday weekend. The wind laid down and it turned in to a very night night. The squid started coming over the rail as soon as the jigs went in the water. The bite was spread out with high hooks having more the half a bucket full. All in all the night turned out very will. Our next squid trip will be sailing Wednesday at 7pm.

 

Captain rich reported a wet day on the full day fluke boat. The rain and the wind kept coming and never let up. We took the ride to the east today to try and hide from some of the wind. There was a nice pile of fish waiting in the river for us. High hook had 4 keepers. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am

Saturday May 26th

Captain Mike reported a decent night on the squid grounds. The wind at the start of the trip made more less then ideal squid condition. It was a slow slow pick through the night with the squid really down right off the bottom. Once the wind let go they started to be much more active. High hooks reported catching upwards of 100 squid. Some did not fair so well with only having a handful. Squid fish does take some practice and a little knowledge. We will be sailing tonight at 7pm by reservation only.

 

Captain Rich reported a slow day on the fluke grounds. We had a great turn out of anglers for the nice holiday weekend. The wind machine kept on blowing and seems like it was on high at times. The fast drift made it tough to keep the jigs on the bottom. High hook had 4 keepers and the pool fish was around 6 pounds. We are planning to sail tomorrow morning at 7am.

Captain Mike was at the helm on the seasons first half day trips and reported slower fishing on the beach. We marketed alot of bait but were moving to fast over the grounds. We did mange some keepers and shorts and a pile of sea robins. We are scheduled to sail tomorrow on both half day trips.

Thursday May 24th

We were very happy to finally get out on the grounds and try for some squid. The squid started hitting as soon as we stopped. It was a steady pick all night with a few shots of good fishing. Those who stuck fished hard all night walked away with a bucket or more. Our next trip is scheduled for Friday night and then again on Saturday. Reservations are a must on these trips.
