Striper time but not Friday

    We are switching to striped bass for now with the only one fish per person blackfish limit and very few sea bass being caught. There  has been a much better turnout for the stripers so we will give that a shot. Catching on jigs, shads  and plugs at times so be prepared. It will be too windy tomorrow so come down on the weekend. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you soon.

Monday 10/28

       Had another nice day on water with a gentle swell even after all the wind on Sunday. Again went out with just a few anglers on the nicest day of this week coming and picked at the short black fish along with a few keepers and a couple of keeper sea bass. We did not try to go out today and would not have made it anyway but will try tomorrow, Weds while Thursday is not looking good so stay home. We will start fishing for striped bass on Friday, weather permitting. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you soon.

Saturday 10/26 A prayer for Chris

      As some of you may or may not know mate Chris,  has been in the hospital for the past ten days and we wish him a full recovery. Went back to where we have been fishing and picked at  sea bass and  blackfish, both keepers and shorts on several drops. The dog fish were not that bad as most used crabs.  The porgies seem to be gone as we have not seen them in a few trips. We are providing clams for bait but the crabs seem to do the trick so pick some up as we don't always have them. No party boats from our harbor sailed today but we will be there tomorrow sailing one trip at 7:30 AM. Thanks for looking in and here are some pics.

Friday 10/25 Where are they

      What I mean is where are the bottom fishermen. Went out with another small group while the striper boats were loaded and did not have a good day. We picked at the the Sea bass and black fish both shorts and keepers, not a fast pick but it was fishing. Everyone caught fish and went home with a black fish , and some with a few sea bass. Back at it today but tomorrow, Sunday does not look good and we will not be sailing. As soon as the striped bass fishing is more consistent we will switch over, so stay tuned. Her are some pics and thanks for looking in.

Thurs 10/24 Today was nice

    Well you missed a beauty of a day if you thought about going out.  Light breeze, calm seas and we even had decent fishing. Picked at keeper sea bass and shorts along with the same with the black fish for those who wanted and could catch them. We are providing clams but if you want to catch more black fish pick up some green crabs. The sea bass also eat them and you will have a less problem with the spiny dogfish. Thanks for looking in and don't forget we now leave at 7:30 AM sailing only one trip to about 2:30 PM

Tues 10/22 Was not nice but ended up ok

    We went out with just a few fishermen but after we got to the ocean I almost wished we didn't go out. Had to run slower with the rough seas and almost turned around. Once we anchored up it still was not nice but picked a few short blackfish and then a keeper sea bass. The bite got better with the blackfish and we ended up with a boat limit of keepers (one per person)  but everyone caught fish. Sailing 3/4 day now leaving @ 7:30 AM for bottom fish for now until something happens with the stripers. Thanks for looking in  and here are a couple of pics.

Sat/Sunday and now 3/4 day @ 7:30 AM

    The fishing was not good over the weekend catching mostly short sea bass and and blackfish with only a few keepers. The fish are farther out so we will now be 3/4 day leaving @ 7:30 AM returning around 2:30 - 3 PM. I would not mind sailing at 8 AM but if not enough were to show up you would have to go home since all the other boats are sailing at 7:30 AM, so be there earlier. We will be bottom fishing for now until the Stripers show up on inshore waters where you can keep them. You may have heard of some good catches of stripers but they have been in Federal waters out side of 3 miles and they are illegal to keep there. Thanks for looking in and sorry I don't have any pics.

Friday 10/18 update

   We or any other boats up here have sailed since Tues with the rain and strong winds. Not sure about this morning yet, have to see what the winds are blowing and if enough people show up. Not sailing this afternoon but will do half day trips over the weekend but Sunday is not looking good for that afternoon trip with the rain coming.  Monday we will switch to 3/4 day trips leaving @ 7:30 AM. Thanks for looking in and when in doubt give me a call.

Tues 10/15

   We ran the morning  trip with only a handful on such a nice day. Picked at some short porgies in the bay then went to look for better fishing. Made a couple of drops and caught some keeper black sea bass. The next two days  do not look good for going out so we will not be going, but will see about Friday when it gets closer. Here are some pics from yesterday and today, thanks for looking in.

Monday 10/14 Another beauty

    It was another beautiful day on thee water with light winds and calm seas. Fish the bay where we had decent fishing on Sunday morning but it turned out like Sunday afternoon with a pick of short porgies and some blackfish but only a few keeper porgies. Tried out in the ocean and only caught a few more fish. In the afternoon it was the same but we did get a keeper blackfish and a few keeper sea bass along with the keeper porgies. Don't forget we are  sailing the morning trips only this week. Will post some pics later as left the camera on the boat. Thanks for looking in.

Sunday 10/13 nice morning but

    We did not make it out on Saturday with not enough showing up either trip but we did make both trips today. The fishing in the ocean has been no good after the wind all week so we started in the bay and stayed there this morning and picked away ant mostly short porgies, keepers and some jumbos. Got lucky with a few keeper and short black fish in the mix that took the pool. Everyone caught and went home with fish. Went back there in the afternoon and had good action with the short porgies but only a few keepers. Back at it tomorrow @ 8 AM and again @ 1:30 PM. Tues thru Friday we will only be doing morning trips only from 8 AM to about 1 pm, same fare. Thanks for looking in and here are some pics.

Sunday 10/6 Good but had to deal

   We tried to stop in the bay to wait for the change of tide which usually makes it nicer with wind and tide together but the small area was taken up by two boats so we took our chances in the  ocean. It was not nice,  not dangerously rough, but the kind of seas that can get some people sea sick, and some were. Didn't see much at first but then started to pick away at the porgies and sea bass. Short porgies at first then  the bigger ones turned on. If you hung in there you ended up with a nice catch of big porgies. The mates shred a rod as one worked deck and ended up with a bucket full. We may not be able to fish the ocean this week so if we go (not looking good) we will be stuck in the bay where there are some keeper porgies but mostly shorts and some days not much at all. Thanks for looking in and here are some pics. The rack bucket ids of only some of the fish as many went off whole.

Sat 10/5 a good A M

     None of the boats here went out with the rain and wind the Thurs or Fri.  Saturday morning there was some wind form the N E so we tried in the bay only catching a few keeper porgies an mostly shorts. Went across to where we have been fishing but it was rolly, but not terrible but it did not agree with  a few,  you know what  mean. First drop was the same thing with short porgies and small sea bass. Then we found the big ones and had a good pick going. Sonny ended up wit a couple of dozen and he was not even high hook. The afternoon was a different story as we went right back to where we left them biting and it didn't happen. Tried drifting and anchoring different areas but only a slow pick on mostly short sea bass(closed anyway)  small porgies but not may keepers.We will see what happens today. Tomorrow they are calling for some showers in the afternoon so we will only fish the morning Thanks for looking in and here are some pics.

Weds nice onthe water

   The weather and temps were not bad on the water although the forecast was highs near 90 *. In the morning we made a few drifts and picked at the fish and then anchored up to pick more. Danny Wong got close to a NY limit but Manny got the pool fish although there were bigger ones not in it . Everyone caught fish but some not many. On the afternoon trip it was breezy so we anchored on a couple of drops and picked at the porgies, sea bass and a Trigger fish that took the pool. No boats sailed today and tomorrow does not look good with winds to 30 plus. Here are some  pics and thanks for looking in.
