Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that we had some great late fall codfishing, right up until about mid-January. With this wind, we didn’t get out at all this past week. We’d like to thank all of our loyal customers for fishing with us this year, it was a great season!

The Black Hawk is scheduled to get hauled out at Crocker’s Boatyard this week for routine annual maintenance. The hull will be pressure washed, waxed and polished; a few coats of bottom paint applied, etc. We plan on doing some work inside the cabin, including adding 2 more fiberglass dinette tables with bench seating.

With Coast Guard inspections all made up to date, we plan on being back in the water well in time for March & April cod fishing. Yes, we’ll miss February, but it’s the worst weather month and historically the slowest fishing.

We look forward to seeing all our customers at the upcoming boat and sport shows. First one is the Hartford Boat Show, February 9 through the 12th. Visit our website to see our complete schedule of sports shows. We’ll be giving seminars at all of them. Hope to see you all there.
