Was nice to be blackfishing again but didn't miss tough anchoring conditions. The anchors did not get tight until the wind picked up and the fishing started off very slow but then improved. Picked at shorts ar first and then some keepers came u with action all around the boat but not fast. High hook was 4 keeper blackfish some with one and two and some did not get dinner. Back to stripers today and not sailing on Thursday, Thanksgiving, with the wind forecast. I am leaning towards stripers for Friday but will decide tomorrow. Thanks for looking in and have a nice Thanksgiving. her are a few pics.

None of the boats went out on Sunday with the wind and rain.Beautiful day today but only one guy showed up. We will do a blackfish special tomorrow, Tuesday, and then decide from there. Not sailing Thanksgiving, though I usually do, with the high wind forecast. Green crabs supplied so hope to see you in the morning.

After a long week of not getting out, blown out Sat thru Mon, and not enough to go out the rest of the week, we had a very nice day for a small group that will be the nicest day of the weekend. Caught fish (stripers) all day long with everyone catching, some to 10 - 15 fish and almost everyone going home with dinner. Even young Lucian, grandson of the late captain Charlie Fossani jr, (Miss Highlands & Super Cat, where I started) caught about ten fish. Unfortunately we will not be sailing tomorrow, Sunday, with the wind forecast and rain. Sailing every day otherwise, weather permitting, @ 7:30 AM. Thanks for looking in and here are pics of some of the fish.

We have not sailed since Monday and heard the fishing was great on Thursday but we not enough showed up to go out. We did start off good with a few shorts and slot fish (24 - 28") on the first drift. Went to a few different area chasing the birds but hard to keep up with. Picked a few here and there but the last few drifts we picked away. Everyone caught fish but not everyone went home with one but those that did catch more than one keeper shared them with others. Not going out today or tomorrow, Sunday, and probably not Monday either ,but will see on that one. We are still fishing for striped bass for now since it has been good and the blackfishing has not been that good for getting keepers. We will see what happens with the fishing and go from there.. Give me a call if you are not sure. Sailing every day WEATHER permitting. Thanks for looking in and here are some pics.

We had our best day fishing so far boating over a hundred fish with only 15 fishermen on board, and we never had to leave our bay fishing ten minutes from the dock. Everyone went home with a bonus fish but with all those fish we could not get one over 28", but a few close ones. Shads out fished the jigs so bring them and a spinning rod along with a conventional for jigging in deeper water if we have to. Did not sail today and will not sail tomorrow, Weds, but Thurs and Friday look good. As of now we will stay fishing for stripers because the weekend does not look good for fishing the ocean with strong NE winds and rough seas. I know Saturday the opening of keeping 5 blackfish but we will hold off till some time next week, so stay posted or give me call. Thanks for looking in and here are some pics.

We started off the morning riding around, looking where we had fish yesterday, but then came upon some fish in another area. Picked at some shorts and slot (bonus fish) which we have tags for (24 - 28 "). Decent action after that but only bonus fish and shorts. At least everyone on board when home with a fish and had some action. Sailing every day, weather permitting, if not sure give me a call. Thanks for looking in and here are some pics.

We started off in the bay with a report to catch a slot fish (24 -28") which we have bonus tags for and a nice keeper @ 36 ". The life died so we ventured south where the other boats were to catch a few shorts and a slot or two. We went back to to where we started and caught a few more slots, shorts and a another keeper at 39". Then the birds went crazy and we jumped in as the other boats were heading in and had a nice grand finale with shorts and slots (bonus fish) to end the afternoon with almost a limit of slot fish. Most went home with dinner. Stayed late but it was worth it having the action and putting few in the boat. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you soon. Here are a few pics of some of the fish.

We did not have the life or action that we had yesterday but did catch slots(bonus fish), shorts and a keeper along with some bonitos. We WILL be sailing tomorrow, Friday, as they lowered the wind forecast and as long as enough people show up. It will be on the chilly side so dress warm but we do have a heated cabin, thanks for looking in and hope to see the hardy in the morning. Thanks for looking in and here are a few pics.

We had a good bite from the get go catching fish on almost every drift. Limited out on bonus fish (between 24 -28") and threw some of those back fish back along with some shorts but did catch a a nice 35 '' fish for the pool. Everyone went home with fish. Be prepared if you come with jigs, shads and plugs and a spinner along with a heavier conventional rod. Jigs worked best in the morning but the shads and plugs did better when the fish were on top. Come down and bring some friends as we are NOT crowded. Thanks for looking in, here are some pics

On a cold morning that we are not used to we headed out and tried a drift on some readings but n g. As we left the area mate Jimmy spotted birds behind us so we turned around and game on. Picked on a few drifts with mostly shorts but some slot fish (between 24 -28" that we have bonus tags for) in the mix. We had some good action for an hour and half. Then it was over so we looked around for a while trying a few different areas. Finally at the end of the day we came across more birds working and boated a few more slot fish and some shorts. Over all not a bad day. Back at it tomorrow but not sailing Tuesday , 11/5. Thanks for looking in and here are some pics but something wrong with the camera.
