Saturday June 30

Captain Matt reported good fishing on both half day trips. The morning had next to no drift which did make it slower on the fluke but good on the sea bass. Biggest fluke of the morning was not in the pool and was just shy of 9 pounds.  Some limits of sea bass for those lucky anglers. We will have both half day trips tomorrow at 8am and 1pm.

 

There is only the limit load fluke trip on Monday. There will be the limit load trip on the Lady and the 2 half day trips on the Gail.

 

Captain Rich reported a very good turn of of anglers today. They were treated to next to zero drift for most of the morning so we focused on the sea bass. Most anglers left with limit fo sea bass to 5 pounds. The afternoon did see better fishing but the sea bass just seemed to take over. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am.

Friday June 29th

Captain Matt reported good fishing on the halfday trips. The morning started out very sloppy from the left over swell but as the day went on it got nicer. The first drift saw the best fluke action but then it switched to all sea  bass. Biggest fluke on the half days were over 7 pounds.  There looks to be a break in the weather for the next week and we will be sailing 2 trips a day.

 

Captain rich reported an Ok day on the full day grounds. The morning started off very slow but picked up as the day went on. Biggest fish of the day was around 27” and a solid 9 pounds. This fish had some true shoulders on her. Many shorts to keep rods bent between the keepers. We will be sailing tomorrow morning. We do ask everyone to show up before 630.

Captain Rich reported a decent day on the full day fluke boat. The morning had some decent fishing on some new area. Once the tide died we took a steam more to the south to find a drift. We had fish every where we tried. high hooks went home with limits of keeper fish. The quality of the fish this year has been out standing!! 2 fish over 10 pounds battled it out for the pool today with 5 other fish close behind in the 8-9 pound range. No trip tomorrow but the weekend ahead looks good.

 

Captain Matt reported a slower morning on the half day grounds. The lack of drift from the near perfect weather made for some slow fishing. A few fluke and some sea bass did go in to the coolers. The afternoon did have a better drift and did see improved fishing.

 

Tuesday June 26th

Captain Matt reported that the day ended up on the good side. The morning started over very slow with no drift till after lunch time. The morning was a slow grind on the fluke but was decent sea bass fishing. Nearly a full boat limit of fine sea bass to 4 pounds. Thew as plenty of shorts to keep the rods bent. After lunch we got a drift and started to box the fluke. Both bait and gulp worked very well. Pool fish was around 8 pounds and high hook had a limit. We will be sailing tomorrow at 7am.

Monday June 25th

Captain Matt reported a decent day on the fluke grounds. We took the ride south to find some more fluke. The wind machine kept turning out  some more the forecasted winds which made for a very fast drift. High hooks had limit catches with many others having 3-4 each. Pool fish was a solid 8 pound fish. No sea bass today just solid fluke. Captain Matt will be at the helm tomorrow and we will be sailing at 7am.

Sunday June 24th Sea bass opener!

Capt George reported a slower morning on the half trip. There was next to zero drift and the fish just did not wanna bite.  We did find a few sea bass hiding in the rocks but it was slower over all. Captain Mike did have much better action in the afternoon on the fluke and sea bass. We will have both trips tomorrow at 8am and 1pm.

Captain Rich reported an OK day on the full day boat. He was also plagued with the slow drift conditions. The fluke did take a lower profile to the sea bass.  A few dozen keeper fluke to over 6 pounds today. Nearly a full boat limit of sea bass to 4 pounds. The sea bass were not as plentiful as the past few weeks but we still put together a good catch. Over all everything turned out to be a very good day. Our next sailing day will be tomorrow at 7am.

Saturday June 23rd

Captain Matt reported a decent day on the full day fluke boat. The weather was less then ideal but the fish were hungry. High hook had a limit of fine fattys to 10.4 pounds. Many fish in the 4-7 pound range.  Richard Lee from Hicksville NY had 5 keepers 10.4, 8.6, 8.2, 7.1 and 4 pounds. The island seems to be holding a few more bigger fish and down east has a few less but more action. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am on the Gail Frances. Sea bass does open tomorrow!!!IMG_1214 IMG_1213 IMG_1212 IMG_1215

Friday June 22nd

 

Sea bass finally opens this Sunday. We will have 2 half day trips  and 1 full day trip. Reservations are required for these trips.

 

We are keeping an eye on Saturdays weather. It looks a little wet but we do plan on sailing all scheduled trips.

 

Captain Greg reported a decent day on the full day fluke boat. The action on the grounds has been great but the fish have been on the smaller side. Most people caught between 10-15 fish but only a handful of keepers. High hook had 4 keepers and the pool fish was around 7 pounds. We are scheduled to sail tomorrow morning at 7am.

Captain Matt reported and OK morning on the half day boat. The same thing we have been seeing all week lots of bent rods but not as many keepers. The trips have been great for beginners who really just want to get in to fishing and get the rods bent. We are still planning on sailing all trips this weekend. Fish dont care if its wet.

Captain Matt reported a very busy day on the full day fluke boat. He stayed closed to home and worked on massive piles of bait.The fishing was almost like porgy fishing it was so quick. The fish were all on the smaller side but its always fun to catch. He steamed off in hopes of finding bigger fish but they were very spread out. HIgh hook had 4 keepers and the biggest fish of the day was just over 27″ inches. Some anglers reported catching over 40 fluke on the trip. Our next trip is scheduled for tomorrow am on the Lady Frances

Sunday June 17th

Captain Mike reported a good night on the squid boat. The whole night was a steady pic. Some anglers fared better then others but those who stuck it out ended up close to a bucket full. We will keep squid fishing until the bite dies.

Captain Rich reported a much better day on the full day fluke boat.  Rich found a pile of bait and worked on it all day long. High hooks had limit catches of fluke to 7 pounds. There was plenty of short fish and sea bass to keep rods bent all day. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am on the Gail Frances.

 

Captain Matt reported very solid fishing on the half day trips. The morning started out slow but then we found stacks of bait 40ft high and plenty of hungry fish underneath. There was fluke, bluefish, striped bass, sea robins, scup, and sea bass waiting with open mouths. The afternoon saw a littler slower action but still good fishing. We will be sailing half days daily at 8am and 1pm.
