Tues 5/23 Got the blues

  We tried for stripers for a little while in the morning with no results so we went to catch some bluefish. Slow pick that got better and we caught some beauties. On the afternoon trip we targeted the bluefish and after a slow start we began picking some nice ones. Back at it tomorrow at 8 AM and 1:30 PM, they will be our last striper and bluefish trips. Fluke on Thursday so hope to see you on the dock, thanks for looking in.

Sun/Mon 5/21-22 reports Blues and Stripers

   We got out on both trips Sunday and tried for stripers first in the morning but we did not catch any and did not see any caught. Switched oveer to blues and picked at some nice fish including a keeper fluke.In the afternoon we  went just for the blues and picked all afternoon on one drop.  Did not expect to get out in the rain on Monday but a handful showed up and we did catch a couple of short stripers and picked at some nice big blues. Switching to Fluke on Thursday on the same half day schedule, leaving at 8 AM and again at 1:30 PM. Here are some pics and thanks for looking in.

Thurs/Fri 518/19 Stripers and Blues - ladies day

    We finally got on the the striper board with a couple of keepers (by the ladies) and a short this morning and then went to catch a few blues.  The afternoon was not as as productive like the last few afternoons. Yesterday it was only blues in the morning and tough afternoon. FLUKE opens on Thursday May 25, with the bag limit of 3 @ 18 inches. I actually can not wait after this spring fishing. When we switch over to fluke we do not want braid in the back of the boat, it is only allowed from the rear of the cabin forward. It gets caught on the shafts and causes problems in the cutlasses. So if you like to fish the stern (back) of the boat please us monofilament line. here are a few pics and hope to see you on the dock. Thanks for looking in.

Update to 5/17

   We got out yesterday and tried for the stripers with no results so we went for the blues and caught a few. The afternoon was a little better blue fishing but no bass. Today same thing happened, but the blue fishing was better on the morning trip but not the afternoon trip. Make sure you pick up some wire leader hooks for the blues if you want to have some fun. We are still waiting to hear about the fluke regulation outcome so stay tuned , we will keep you posted when we hear some thing. Here are a few pics.Sailing 2 trips every day, weather permitting. Hope to see you on the dock.

Friday 5/12 Blues and a show

    Headed out on the morning trip with only a few fishermen, this is getting old.  Came across a pod of dolphins, moms and some pups. Had a nice show and when we anchored up on the outside and then they came around again. Left that area and tried a couple of drops and started catching big blues and a few fluke and blackfish (both out of season).  No boats sailed on Saturday with the rain and easterly winds to 30+ mph. Not sailing today and not tomorrow, Monday,  with the high wind forecast. Tuesday on looks good, and we are thinking of maybe doing some specials for other species like ling since not many are coming down  the blues and the stripers are few and far between. We will keep you posted. Thanks for looking in, and here are a few pics.

Thurs 5/11 afternoon

   We went out with a handful of anglers and tried where some bass were being caught but only had a few bites and dropped one as the tide ran out. Moved back to where we have been fishing and picked some big blues. Today looks to be good but not tomorrow with heavy rain and  strong easterly winds. Fluke regs are not set in stone yet but they are leaning towards a short season (May 25 or 26 to Sept 5 ) and 3 @ 18 inches. Thanks for looking in and here are a few pics.
