Captain Matt was at the helm of the Lady Frances and reported slower fishing on the fluke grounds. The wind we had from the weekend really turned up the water and left a pretty nasty ground swell. The fluke bite was way off from what we have been seeing. Only a few hand fulls of keepers were baoted. The sea bass fishing on the other hand was out of this work with hundred and hundreds of fishing being caught and released. It is only a matter of time till we can keep them. Our next sailing day will be on Thursday at 7am on the Grail Frances.
We are planning on sailing tomorrow morning at 7am on the Lady

Captain Matt reported another solid day on the fluke boat. Thick fog all day made for a rather wet day but the fish didnt care. The sandeels on the grounds was outstanding stacked up 40 foot thick!!! They were so thick there was a pod of humpback whales snacking all day long. The fluke fishing was good as well with high hooks having limits. Plenty of fish in the 4-6 pound range with the biggest being around 8 pounds. Tomorrow we will be sailing on the Gail Frances at 7am.
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.
