Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that Monday again showed some of the best diamond jigging you could ask for. All the bluefish you could possibly want, with a few bass mixed in. All action, full coolers, and tired muscles. Tuesday was back to bottom fishing with excellent seabass fishing, limits all around, full coolers with a nice combination of porgies mixed in. Unfortunately, the rest of the week was a wash with the high winds and the pending storm. We’re planning on fishing again Monday. Everyone’s lost a few days, and we’re certainly looking forward to getting back out there. Who knows what’s going to have changed or where we’re going to find ’em, but since we have Mother Nature as a business partner there’s not much we can do about. Just need to grin and bear it. Look for an update in next week’s report.
Heather from the office reports that this is our last week of weekday fishing trips. Starting on Tuesday, October 6, our schedule will be Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, one trip each day, leaving at 7:00 am. We do still have some dates available for private charters, so give us a call and we’ll get your group set up. As always, check our website and facebook page for updates.

Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports absolutely excellent seabass fishing all week long. Big fish, a lot of big scup in there too. The only exception was Friday’s trip- due to the strong northeasterly winds we altered our plans a little bit and stayed inside, fishing around Race Rock, the south shore of Fisher’s Island and down at Watch Hill. Fish everywhere we stopped, but no big concentration of them anywhere. As the water chills off, we’re hoping something happens here locally. As of now, the premier fishing is out in the Montauk and Block Island area. There’s been some codfish caught during the week, a handful of fluke here and there too.
On another note, the bluefishing has drastically improved in the Race. The ebb tide has been sensational, all you wanted diamond jigging, a few striped bass mixed in with them. Customers have been catching their fill and releasing the rest on the bluefish trips.
All in all we’re looking for some great fall fishing in the coming weeks.
Heather from the office wants to thank everyone for their Black Hawk and the Community donations so far this month. We were able to take a huge load of dog supplies to Friday’s Rescue Foundation last week, where they will go to help dogs who are awaiting their forever homes. We will still collect these items for the rest of September.
Our After Work Special trips are done for the year, we’d like to thank everyone for a great run with these trips this year. We look forward to more of these trips next year. Heather also reminds everyone that our schedule is now Sundays & Mondays, one trip daily for bass & blues at 8:00 am. Tuesday through Saturday it’s one trip daily for porgies and seasbass. Check the website for a full schedule and updates.
