Saturday July 21

There will be no trips tomorrow because of the weather. We are keeping an eye on Mondays weather and will be posting info as soon as we have it.

 

Captain Mike reported a Ok morning on the half day trip. A good showing of fluke but not as many sea bass. Biggest fluke was 6 pounds. Biggest sea bass on the day was 4 pounds. Captain Matt was at the helm of the RISSA Charter and reported very good sea bass fishing. The slow drift let us sit on a pile and work on it. Some big fluke in the rocks with the biggest being around 9 pounds.

Friday July 20th

IMG_1314 IMG_1312 IMG_1315 IMG_1311 IMG_1313Captain Rich was at the helm of today full day and reported one of the best days of the season. From the first drift to the last the fish were biting. The long drifts really let us cover some ground and find massive piles of bait. More then half the boat is going home with a limit of fluke and a pile of sea bass. Pool honors went to long time regular Sean Harris with a fine 9 pound slab. Many fish in the 5-7 pound range. Tomorrow morning trip full day is very questionable on sailing with when the wind is starting. It will be a dock side call.

Captain Matt reported a great day on his full day charter. It took a little while to get dialed in but once they did it was game on. More then 3/4 of the boat went home with a limit with many in the 3-5 fish range. We have only a few days left for charters. IF you would like a private charter please call or email and talk with Cory.

 

Captain Mike reported a very good morning on the half day trip.The morning saw next to zero drift but the fish did not care. More fluke then we have been seeing with fish up to 7 pounds. Many sea bass limits with fish up to 5 pounds.We are scheduled to sail tomorrow morning at 8am on the Lady Frances.

Thursday July 19th

Captain Rich reported a good day on the full day boat. We took the ride to find some fish and they were hungry. Another batch of bait has moved in to the area and a new batch of fish with them. High hook had limits of keepers. Many quality fish in the 5-7 pound range. Tomorrow is another day and we will be sailing at 7am.

Captain Mike reported a solid morning on the half day. Many sea bass limits with fish to 4 pounds. some nice quality fluke in the mix to 6 pounds. We will only have one half day trip tomorrow from 8am to 12pm tomorrow.

 

We are keeping an eye on the weekends weather and will be posting as needed.

Wednesday July 18th

Captain Matt called in to report a full boat limit on today fluke boat. We sailed this morning with a great group of anglers who really wanted to get in on some good fishing. Captain Matt did not disappoint. They had a flying drift today but the fluke were hungry and chased the baits with the drift over 2 knots.  Everyone went home with 6 keepers and a pile of sea bass. Biggest fish of the day was a solid 10 pounds. Lots of fish in the 5-7 pound range. Tomorrow and Fridays weather looks great. We will be sailing at 7am.

Monday July 16th

IMG_1302 IMG_1305 IMG_1304 IMG_1301Captain Matt was happy to report a day on the marathon trip. The morning started out with some grey ghosts but Matt moved the boat and the fluke started coming over the rails. We had a good 5 hours of fishing before the tide switch and the bite just about shut off. Biggest fish on the day was 12 pounds with a few others in the 9-10 pound range. There was plenty of fish in the 6 pound range with one angler catching hit limit with every fish over 6 pounds. At the end of the day we moved in to the rocks and picked away at some sea bass. We were happy with how the day turned out and we will be continuing our Monday Marathons.

 

Captain Mike reported a very slow morning on the half day trip. The next to zero tide made for a slow morning. The afternoon did see much better results on the fluke and sea bass. We will have both trips tomorrow at 8am and 1pm.

Sunday July 15th

Captain Matt reported some highs and lows on today cod marathon. The morning did the the best action but it was over nearly as soon as it started. He bounced around place to place but never got another good bite going. In the end Matt steamed inshore and found a pile of sea bass to work on. A few cod fish, about 50 ling and a limit of sea bass rounded out the trip. We are still very hopeful for the coming weeks.

Captain Matt will be at the helm of tomorrows Monday Marathon fluke trip.

 

Captain Rich reported very tough fluke fishing but good sea bass fishing. Only a small handful of fluke came over the rails as todays conditions turned to sloppy by days end. Biggest fluke on the day was around 6 pounds. There will be no full day trip tomorrow.

20180713_211924 20180713_212303 20180713_212221Captain Greg reported great night of fishing on the night bass boat. A full boat limit of fish in just over a hour!! The fish were coming in fast and furious at 5-8 keepers a drift. We did do some catch and release at the end of the night but we were done and headed to the barn early. Nothing to big for the pool but some really nice eating size. Photos from long time regular Ginny. We still have some room on tonight trip but spots are filling up fast.

 

Captain Mike reported good fishing for a great turn out of anglers today on the morning half day trip. Plenty of bomber sea bass to go around and some nice fluke in the mix. Some anglers went home with limits others only has 1-2. We will have both half day trips tomorrow at 8am and 1pm on the Admiral Frances.

 

Captain Rich reported a good day on the sea bass but slower on the fluke. Full boat limit of sea bass to 5 pounds. Some nice quality fluke today with the pool fish being around 7 pounds. The amount of sea bass in the waters have been down right amazing. Anglers are reporting that there baits are not even hitting the bottom before the sea bass hit it. This can be rather frustrating for those really want to get the fluke. Tomorrow is another day and we will be sailing at 7am on the Gail Frances.

Friday July 13th

Captain Matt reported another amazing day on the morning half day trip. The sea bass were just stacked up and were hungry. We had a full limit of sea bass by 10 am and some decent fluke. Captain Matt moved the boat in hopes to find some better fluke but the sea bass seemed to be everywhere. Everyone one left with smiles on there faces and nice bags of fish for dinner. Tomorrow morning is going to be very busy and we do ask everyone to be here early.

There is no afternoon fluke trip tomorrow and we will resume or normal schedule on Sunday.

 

Captain Rich reported improved fishing on full day boat but it still slower then what we saw in the beginning of the week. High hook left with 3 keeper and a limit of sea bass. The 2 biggest fluke of the day were not in the pool but a nice 6 pound fish took top honors. Both jigs and bait rigs caught today. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am for fluke and sea bass.
