There will be no trip tomorrow with the strong north east winds predicted. We are keeping an eye on the rest of the week and the weekend. Always call the day before to double check the weather and make sure we are sailing.
Captain Matt reported a slower over night tuna. We left extra early to try and get in on last weeks troll bite but that just did not pay off. The swell and wind from early in the week seemed to have pushed the fish out. We did have a very good trip on the mahi but it did not make up for the slow tuna fishing. Our next scheduled trip will be for September 22nd.
Captain Mike reported a good day on the sea bass boat. We had bent rods all day between the keepers and shorts. Biggest sea bass of the day was over 5 pounds. Plenty of hubcap scup in the mix as well. The fluke just could not get to the baits with all the other bottom fish on the grounds. We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am for seabass.
Captain Mike reported a decent day on the sea bass boat. The water was very dirty for the swell from the last week did hinder the catching. High hooks had limits of sea bass. Biggest sea of the day was just shy of 5 pounds. We had a good pile of scup to work on for those who wanted to fill there buckets. We will be scheduled to sail tomorrow morning at 7am on the Gail Frances.
We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am on the Gail Frances for sea bass and fluke.
The tuna trip is also sailing and we do ask everyone to be to the boats by 5am.
There will be no fluke trip tomorrow.
The weekend weather looks very good for us. We will not be impacted by the hurricane at this time.
We are asking all the tuna customers this weekend to be at the dock early. The bite has been on the troll so we are tying to get off the dock early for more fishing time.
Captain Matt reported a very good day on the sea bass on the full day boat. With the swell we have had the past 4 days we decides to focus on the sea bass only. We sailed this morning with a good group of anglers who really wanted to get some good sea bass. An easy full boat limit of sea bass to 5 pounds. We had a full limit by noon and did some explore and found even more sea bass. We will have no trip tomorrow and are keeping an eye on Friday. The hurricane looks like it is going to stay way to the south and leave us with a very nice weekend to come.
We are planning top sail tomorrow at 7am for fluke and sea bass. The captain and crew will be there in the morning. The weather after tomorrow does look unsettled.
All trips cancelled for Sunday and Monday.
Captain rich reported a very sloppy slow day on the fullday boat. We tried to drift for fluke but we had well over 3kts on the drift. We did try anchoring on some rock piles but the sea bass were just hunkered down. No trips tomorrow.
Captain Matt was very happy to report a good tuna trip. The night bite just wasn’t there but the troll bite was decent. We had nearly 50 longfins and a decent pile of bigger mahi. We had perfect trolling weather so we had a full spread of spreaders out and raised alot of fish. We had a few times with 3-5 fish on at a time. We have plenty of room on most trips but reports are coming in fast and fishing is good.
Captain Rich reported a decent day for a small group of anglers. The weather was a little wet and sloppy but those who stuck it out at the rail had some good fishing. High hook had 5 keeper fluke. We had a good amount of sea bass and scup keeping rods bent all day. We will be sailing tomorrow but we are keeping an eye on Sunday and Monday.
Captain Rich reported a better day on the full day fluke boat. We sail with a small group of familiar faces who really wanted some fluke. High hook had 4 keepers with anglers catching between 2-3 each. Plenty of sea bass and scup kept the rods bent all day. It was another day with the slower drift with really hurts the fluke catching. Those who worked the gulp or the buck tails did the best. We are scheduled to sail tomorrow morning at 7am on the Gail Frances.
