Monday 5/20 Whale of a show

     We went out this morning with a handful but got a nice surprise with a whale putting on a show jumping, tail slapping and even came by the boat waving his flipper. To me that was worth the trip but we then also caught a couple of keeper stripers. No blue fish action as we tried a different area. Not enough showed to make the afternoon trip but we will be back on the dock in the morning. Thanks for looking in and here are a couple of pics but didn't get them of the whale.

Sunday 5/19 Guess who showed up

       Made both trips again as it was nice day but the wind did kick up in the afternoon. On the morning trip we did not see anything while waiting for the tide change so we moved to another area and boated a keeper striper along with some blues. Made another drop and got another keepers bass along with losing a few fish. We also did boat a couple of fluke that would have been keepers. The afternoon trip was not as good with a blue fish and missing a few. I told people to bring sweat shirts as it got cold on the way in from the morning trip but luckily the shifted a little and it was not cold. Here are a few pics although the one fella did not want his face shown. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you soon.

Sat 5/18 Fun A M anyway

    We went back to where we have been catching a few fish and it started off slow.  We then started to pick a few short stripers and some blues mixed in. Then the blues got more aggressive and that was all we caught but it was good action with some of the kids getting a good fight. Lost half of them with the bite offs since we were not using wire leaders. The afternoon trip was no where as good. Here are some pics ,the first  two from Friday, and thanks for looking in. Fluke starts on Friday 5/24. Sailing every day @ 8 AM  & 1:30 PM.

Friday 5/17 The Striper Blues

    Again a another very nice day with only a few  fishermen.  On the first spot we got a couple of short stripers and then the big blues took over. Boated a few then move to look for more bass. The results were no good but we will try again tomorrow. Not enough showed up for the afternoon but the weekend looks good. Thanks for looking in and will post pics tomorrow.

5/15 & 16 They're here

     We got out on Weds and Thurs but with very light crowds despite the nice weather. Its been a slow pick of fish the last two days of witch are mostly shorts and a couple of keepers mixed in. This afternoon we had some fun with a few big black drum that we hooked up among the stripers. Fish that were about 50 lbs but we did not bring them into the boat just got the hook out an let go fight another day. John Strozack(sorry for the spelling John) boated two big drum and the pool winning striper of 35 ". Hope to see you on the dock and thanks for looking in. Here are a few pics.

Update to Mon 5/13

     We did not get out on Friday but did make both trips on Saturday. Picked at shorts in the morning and got a couple of keepers but not as good as Thursday's fishing. On the afternoon trip we only caught shorts. Nobody sailed on Sunday or today with the nasty weather but we will be back on the dock tomorrow and see if enough show up to go out. We have been clamming but will  jig if the fish come up. Thanks for looking in and here are a couple of  pics.  The young boy pictured (in yellow) is Lucian who is the grandson of Capt Charlie Fossani Jr of the Miss Highlands and Super Cat party boats. Only  some of you older fishermen may remember those boats. In fact the Miss Highlands was the first boat I worked on as a young boy. We are sailing every day, 7 days, @ 8 AM and again @ 1:30 PM.

Weds/Thurs reports 5/8-9

     We only went out on the morning trip on Weds and picked at some shorts but a slow morning overall. Today we had a great morning with good action picking away at shorts  and some keepers on one drop. Cool on the water so always be prepared as you can as you can always take it off.  Sailing every day but not this Monday 5/13 and only the morning on Sunday, Mothers day. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you soon.

Tues 5/7 Good A M & fair P M

    This morning we picked at a few shorts then got a keeper, then it was 3 on at once, all keepers. Thought it was game on but that was it. Just enough showed up to make the afternoon trip on a nice day, go figure. We  picked a couple of shorts and a keeper, couple more shorts and that was it. Nice afternoon weather wise but it was  a nice group of fisher people.. Will be sailing in the morning but NOT tomorrow, Weds afternoon. Thanks for looking in.

Mon 5/6 First timer old ltimer and lucky lady

     We started off the morning looking for jig fish and made one drop to no avail. Went back to where we have been bait fishing but it was the end of the  tide. We did catch a few shorts but once it started running again we picked away but at shorts and only made one drop. Jeff did get a nice keeper for the pool but at least the action was there. The afternoon trip started the same way and we only had to make one drop again. Better action then the morning but again only one keeper striper that was caught by a pretty young lady,  Alexa, whose father Al  Bickauskas used to work on the party boats. We also had and old timer who caught his first striper but it was short. Back at it tomorrow sailing two trips @ 8 AM and 1:30 PM. Btw we will not be sailing Weds afternoon or Sunday(mother's day) afternoon. Thanks for looking  in and here are a few pics.

Sat 5/4 If only

      We only had to make one drop this morning and got a good pick of fish coming to the boat but...  mostly shorts. High hook was 8 fish but all shorts but we did get a keeper. Good action and fun but.  On the afternoon trip it started off very slow with the change of tide and we boated just a few shorts. Made a move and got them going with some keepers mixed in . Nice afternoon with a fun group of people so we stayed a little late to catch more fish. Tomorrow does not look good with rain and a NE wind with gusts to 30 so stay home and pick a nicer day. Thanks for looking in and here are a few pics of some of the fish, do not know why the mate did not get all of them.

Weds 5/1 Better action

    We got out this morning with another small group, not many coming down with the weather cool weather I guess. Tried  a different area and we got a nice steady pick going with mostly shorts but at least it kept everyone at the rail. Did get a keeper and a few close ones but it was chilly. We did not have enough to make the afternoon trip but will be back on the dock tomorrow. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you soon. On another note, if u you need to call me you can after 5:30 AM or before 9 PM as I got a couple of calls last night after 10 and was already sleeping. Thanks.

Tuesday 4/30 Finally got out

 We did not make it out on Monday or this morning but got out this afternoon. With just enough to go we did not find any top water life so went bait fishing. Anchored up and did catch a couple of shorts. Made a move and caught a few more shorts and then finally did boat a couple of keepers.  Back at it tomorrow and sailing every day now, 2 trips @ 8 AM and again @ 1:30. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you on the dock. Camera malfunctioned again and only one pic.

Sunday 4/28 report

     We and none of the other boats went out on Saturday with the strong winds. Today we were heading  back to where we had some short action on the last trip but then went to where there was some bird life in the other direction. Picked a few nice keepers on the first drift but could not repeat it. looked around but then the bite was over. On the afternoon trip we heard that the area we were in in the morning was dead by then so we went to clamming. Picked a few shorts on a couple of drops an then went to look for some jig fish. Lost a couple but did boat one that just missed at 27". Back at it tomorrow so come on down. Thanks for looking in and here are some pics of some of the fish before the battery died.

Friday 4/26 Are we sailing ?

    Good question, are we sailing  tomorrow or not. Honestly I am not sure and will have to decide in the morning depending on the wind. If we do go out it will NOT be nice with winds predicted to 35 knots and an incoming tide against it. We will be on the dock and go from there, sorry if you have to make along trip but Sunday sounds much better. Thanks for looking in and call me in the morning if you like but not too early as we my not know.

Weds/Thurs reports Where did they go ?

    The last few days the fishing got worse with only some shorts and and a rare keeper. the guess is that they are spawning and not eating so we will take tomorrow off and not sail with the inclement weather of rain and will keep an eye on Saturday  with the wind coming. Clamming (bait) and /or jigging so be ready for both.  Give me a call tomorrow eve about Sat. Not much to show but here is a pic of one of the keepers we caught and thanks for looking in.

Tuesday 4/23 April fools ? Bring a sweatshirt

   We got out on both trips looking for jig fish for a little bit in the morning then bait (clam) fishing where we did boat a keeper and a few shorts with Kenny taking the pool on a gorgeous morning with sunny warm temps and no wind. On the afternoon trip the folks expected the same nice warm weather but got fooled when the S E winds kicked up. We didn't bother looking for jig fish and went bait fishing with the same results of a keeper and a few shorts. If you come down be prepared for either fishing and bring a sweat shirt. Thanks for looking in and here are a couple of pics. BTW watch the weather for Thurs afternoon and Friday, looks like some rain coming.

Monday 4/22 Those that can

    We got out with a small group in the morning but did not make the afternoon trip with the lack of customers. Just a note, this time of year if the weather does not  look good during the week especially in the afternoon, save yourself a trip and pick a nicer day when more people will show up. On the morning trip we did boat some keepers and a short but it was a struggle although one man caught 3 keepers of which he took home one. There are no bonus tags available  in the spring so you can only have one fish over 28" and a second one if it's over 43". Sailing every day , 2 trips @ 8 AM  and again @ 1:30 PM.  Thanks for looking in  and here are a couple of pics.
