Captain Rich reported a slower day on the fluke grounds. Some nice fish by the island but they were also plagued with dogfish. Pool fish was around 8 pounds. There were signs of good bait around the island but nothing below them. The sea bass have started to show up at the island a little more.Captain Matt is at the helm tomorrow.

 

Captain Mike reported solid fishing on both half days trips. The more saw solid fluke and sea bass in the deep water. The afternoon saw good action in the windy conditions on the beach. The half days have been very strong in the last week. We will have two half day trips sailing tomorrow at 8am and 1pm

Saturday July 8th

This morning’s half day was reported to have started very strong but once the tide let go the fishing slowed up. Still a lot of nice size sea bass were taken by fishers. A few fluke mixed in too. Two half days on tap tomorrow with the first set to sail at 8 am and the second at 1 pm aboard the Lady Frances.

Capt. George reported the full day charter for Chris Secard and the Technic Corp found a nice bunch of sea bass, a few handfuls of keeper fluke and two decent size scup. We thank Chris and his group for their loyalty over the years. Call the office in regards to private charter availability.

Capt. Rich reported a near full boat limit of nice size sea bass today. A pick of fluke with a couple of angler limits and a few others who were very close. Biggest fish of the day was well over 8 lbs with runner up also a touch over 8 lbs. Quality fluke have not been scarce this year, we just wish the overall numbers were a little better. Weather was great and the weather looks inspiring for tomorrow. Capt. Rich will set sail on the Gail Frances at 7 am.

Last night’s bass trip was slower. Biggest fish was around 30 lbs. One blue fish. Tonight’s trip is sold out. Plenty of openings Wednesday through Saturday Night of this coming week.

Bass july 8th

July 8thAnother great report from Capt. Matt from the bass trip last night aboard the Lady Frances. The boat was easily limited out on bass and they were all big fish from 30 to 46 pounds!! Too bad it was such a light crowd and that more fishers were not here to share in the bounty. Plenty of room on trips for tonight and tomorrow night. Call the office or book on line to reserve. One photo for now provided courtesy longtime regular customer and exceptional rod handler Perry from NJ. More photos en route! More photos to come as we get them in.

The report from the Gail Frances was of easy boat limit of good size sea bass.

Rich will set sail at 7 am for fluke and sea bass aboard the Gail Frances.

Just one half day tomorrow. The morning trip from 8 am to Noon. Capt. Mike will be ready to set sail aboard the Lady Frances.

Thursday July 6th

Capt. Rich reported a good day of fishing aboard the Gail Frances. There were at least several fluke limits and the boat was totally limited out on big sea bass to over 4 lbs. Longtime customer and exceptional rod handler Brian Cofske from Webster MA and his nephew Jeff Lawrence both easily limited out on big fluke and sea bass today. Congrats to Brian who also took the pool with a fine 7 lb slab. Brian said he did best with whole squid but bait rigs were catching well too. We are pleased to see slowly increasing numbers of nice fluke mixed in with all the big sea bass. Capt. Rich will set sail tomorrow morning aboard the Gail Frances at 7 am. Pictures today provided courtesy of longtime regular customer Brian Cofske. Thanks Brian!

Wednesday July 5th

DANNY8.6BLEDCapt. Mike reported an excellent morning of fishing with a lot of nice quality fluke taken. A lot of beautiful fish in the 3 to 4 lb range. Not as many sea bass taken but still a respectable showing for the fishers aboard. More details to follow! In general the half day fishing has stepped up nicely over the past few days with more fluke and sea bass limits and more and more fishers going home with some beautiful fresh fillets. We hope this trend continues! The big fish yesterday afternoon was 8.6 lbs after being bled out and being put to rest on a bed of ice in the big fish box in the stern. Taken by first mate Danny Beck on a busman’s holiday. Way to go Danny! Picture courtesy of Roger.

Another good half day report for the afternoon trip. The sea bass won out over the fluke but most fishers left with beautiful fillets for at least a few good meals in the near future. Two half days on tap tomorrow with the first set to sail at 8 am and the second at 1pm.

Word from the full day 7 am fluke/sea bass trip was of an easy full boat limit of nice size sea bass and a decent shot of fluke. Big fish of the day not in the pool tipped the scales at nearly ten pounds. Pool fish was however a solid six pounder. There were at least three angler limits on the fluke. Biggest on the sea bass in the four pound range and lots of solid three pound sea bass. Sounds like a pretty nice day of fishing! Capt. Rich will set sail tomorrow morning on the Gail at 7 am. A few beautiful pictures provided by a customer who was fishing on the boat yesterday who chose to stay anonymous.

Fishers also had some nice sea bass and action with the short fluke and short sea bass. Hi hook boxed a limit catch of fluke. Nice to see a little bit of improvement with the fluke the past few days! Some pictures provided courtesy owner Christine Blount.

The Pm fluke trip produced some beautiful sea bass with many fishers aboard getting a limit catch and a few handfuls of big beautiful summer flounder. Deckhand Danny on a busman’s holiday managed a fine brace of jumbo’s with the big one weighed in on the calibrated certified office scale at 8.6 lbs after she had been bled out and was resting on a bed of ice in the X tote. Two half days on tap tomorrow with the first at 8 am and the second at 1pm, both aboard the Lady Frances. Weather looks great and right now still plenty of room on both!

Capt. Rich reported a gorgeous day of weather but perhaps it was too nice. An easy boat limit of sea bass to at least 4 lbs but due to almost no drift the fluke kept a lower profile.
