We made both morning and afternoon trips today picking away at short fluke and also catching a few keepers. On the morning trip teacher Ed took the pool with one of his two keepers. On the afternoon it was a tight race for the pool between the keepers we caught, but Artie took the honors. Still targeting fluke until Sat 9/22, last day. Thanks for looking in and here are some pics.

We only made the morning trip with just a few showing up to got out, but knew everyone on board. Tried a different area with the same results catching some shorts and sea robins but also a keeper. Went out to where we have been going and caught some more shorts but it was a nice day with cloudy skies and a light breeze. We did not bother even trying to go out today (Tuesday) with the rain forecast but will be back on the dock tomorrow and every day there after. Hope to see you soon and thanks for looking in.

There has not been too much to report as we tried the bay and ocean looking for some keeper fluke. Most areas had shorts to catch but not many with the bay actually being better and the keepers we have caught have been in the bay. Today looks good but I do not think we will be sailing on Tues 9/18 with the rain forecast. I have been saying we sail rain or shine but after the very poor turnout on beautiful Sunday, I can't see enough fishermen showing up on a rainy week day. We are trying to hang in there for the fluke but we MAY switch to porgies by Saturday, we will see what the week brings. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you soon if you want to catch that last fluke.

We were the only boat out in the morning with only a handful of guys. Tried several different areas, with most producing shorts and some nothing. In the last area we picked shorts and finally a keeper fluke. There hasn't been any caught on our party boats since Saturday. Not much of a report but it s was something. Fluke season ends on Saturday 9/ 22 and we will stick with the fluke until then. After that we will be half day porgy (scup) fishing on the same schedule. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you soon. Running 2 half day trips every day, 7 days a week @ 8 AM and again @ 1:30 PM. Here is a pic of our pool winner, but not good one.

We did not make either trip on Tues but did get out on Weds morning, the only boat out. Very few people showing up to go out with the forecast of high seas and not great weather. We had very thick fog but tried the bay first and then out farther, even into the ocean. It was not rough just a big swell. Picked some shorts and few sea robins and dogfish, in a few areas and a a couple areas had no life. Did not have enough for the afternoon trip, only one guy, but will be there every day to go at 8 AM and 1:30 PM. This time of year try to pick the nicer days if you can so we can get enough to go out. Thanks for looking in.

We made it out both trips on Saturday fishing the ocean most of the morning but it was not nice. Picked shorts on most spots then retreated to the bay. In the afternoon we stayed in the bay picking at shorts and a keeper that was hard to find. none of the boats sailed on Sunday or today. We will try again tomorrow, Tues, but most likely in the bay. Sailing at 8 AM and again at 1:30 PM, still fishing for fluke. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you soon.

The ocean was not nice but we did go;there and found an area where we picked away at shorts, everyone catching fish. Only a few keeper fluke were boated but it was better than I thought it would be. We were the only boat to make it out in the afternoon but with the east wind and incoming tide together the drift was too fast where we wanted to fish. Picked a few shorts here and there but not good. We will be sailing two trips today, Saturday, and maybe tomorrow morning but Sunday afternoon and Monday do not look good. Thanks for looking in and here are a couple of pics.
