Captain Matt reported a amazing day on the Marathon trip. In his own words fishing was just “stupid”. The first drift saw 50 keepers come over the rail. The next drift 80 keepers!!!. This is just amazing fishing. Stacks and stacks of bait. Around 10:30 Matt was nearly limited out and did some exploring. We found fluke every where we tried. On top of all the fluke we had a limit of sea bass to 5 pounds. The biggest fluke on the day were around 9 and just shy of 10 pounds. Spots are filling up quick on the next 3 weeks.
Captain George reported decent fishing on the half day trips. The morning trip did see the best action with the tide. Some limits of sea bass but it was slower then we have been seeing. A few more fluke in the afternoon with the faster drift. We will be sailing at 8am and 1pm tomorrow for the half days./
Captain Greg reported a decent night of the bass boat. More then half the boat had a limit of fish. 3fish over 20 pounds with the biggest being around 25. Next sailing day is Wednesday Night
Captain Matt reported a very busy day on the full day fluke boat. Many limitis around the boat on both fluke and sea bass. One angler reported catching nearly 3 full limits (orl) There was plenty of acxtion with the fluke and sea bass weather it was a keep or a short. Gulp, Spros or bait rigs it really didnt matter the fish were hungry.The only fulld ay trip tomorrow is the limit load fluke trip from 5am to 5pm.
Captain Mike reported a busy morning on the half day trip. We had a sold out crowd for the perfect summer weather day. Nearly 200 sea bass were caught and made it in to coolers. The mates were very busy running around taking off keepers or shorts. We will have both trips tomorrow at 8am and 1pm.
Captain Chris reported a slightly better day on the full day fluke boat. We sailed with a light group of anglers who didnt mind the rain. High hook had 6 keepers and a limit of sea bass.

Captain Chris reported a slower day on the fluke boat. We took the gamble to try back down to the east and the fish were not biting. Only a few handfuls of fluke made it in to the coolers. There was some nice sea bass but the haystacks we had a few weeks ago. We are very sure there are still plenty of fish down to the east but they just did not wanna bite.
Captain Mike reported a slower morning as well. The swells from the past week have slowed things with the dirty water. There was still plenty of sea bass the rods but they were on the smaller side.

The afternoon is sold out due to a private charter.
Captain Chris reported a rather sporty day on the full day fluke boat. We had a group of anglers who wanted a fast drift with the wind but ended up with wind against tide. Some fluke to 6 pounds made it over the rails. Some sea bass limits but many, many pin sea bass went swimming for another day. Tomorrows weather is slightly nicer and we are going to a new location.

It does look like the rain is going to hold off tomorrow and we should be able to get both trips in at 8am and 1pm.
Captain Matt reported a good day on the full day fluke boat. Action wasnt hot and heavy but it was steady all day long. It was a few fish every drift that added up to a very good catch.

The weather looks like it will have a fast drift tomorrow and captain and crew will be at the dock.
Captain Mike reported a decent morning on the half day. We had a slow drift to start the day off but by the end it was right where we like it. Some quality fluke in the mix with 2 fish over 28″ making it in to the nets. Many anglers left with sea bass limits. The afternoon saw very good fishing with some anglers stopping because they just didnt wanna reel any more fish in. We will have both half day trips tomorrow at 8am and 1pm.

Captain Rich reported a slower day on the full day. Slower then it has been the past week but it was still good fishing over all. Anglers still left with limits of both fluke and sea bass. More shorts then we have been seeing as well keeping anglers busy throughout the day. Rich was also plagued with the slower drift conditions for most of the day.There is still pile and piles of bait on the grounds so fishing should continue to be strong. We are planning on sailing tomorrow morning from 7am to 4 pm.
Captain Matt called in to report a very successful Monday marathon trip. We sailed with a sold out crowd looking to bend the rod on some very good fluke fishing. Despite not having a drift over .5 all day we did very full. Only a few handfuls shy of a full limit of fluke and sea bass. No real bell ringer fluke but 5 fish between 8-9 pounds battled it out. Matt did try a few different locations finding fluke at most and some grey ghost at other. Most anglers are going home with limit catches of fluke while other only had a few. We will continue these trips until the end of August on Mondays. These trips are reservation only.

Biggest sea bass of the day was around 5 pounds. The fishing has been some of the best we have seen in years so do not miss out!!!
Happy 30th birthday to Kyle Blount
