Capt. Greg shares that one thing about the Black Hawk fishing reports is that they’ll be the honest truth. Good, bad or indifferent, you’ll always get the straight scoop. This weekend, Saturday and Sunday, it was a grind. Ironically, this past midweek was really good. Thursday it was lights out, as good as it gets. Friday Capt. Matt had some great fishing the first couple of hours, then it fell on its face. Every boat out there caught a handful of codfish the remainder of the day. Saturday, with a full boatload of cod fishermen, all the boats went steaming down to the last week’s hot spot, only to find that it wasn’t gonna happen. One head boat came all the way from New Jersey! You can’t make ’em bite! Matt ended up steaming to an offshore wreck where he corralled 25-30 codfish, with a lot of shorts, and a good pile of ling, some of them baseball bat sized. Not the best by any means, but the best for that day. Sunday, he was going back to the same wreck. Tomorrow, Monday, it’s supposed to blow an Easterly gale, so who knows. We’ll keep trying. Many thanks to all of our supporting customers!
Heather from the office reminds everyone that we’re fishing from Stonington. All trips require reservations, so call the office to get a spot. As always, check our website and Facebook page for more info and details.
