Capt. Greg of the Black Hawk reports another banner week of jumbo porgy fishing. Tuesday, we had a light crowd and hot fishing, getting our limits and then going fluke fishing. Wednesday’s trip was a repeat, clobbering the scup, filling everybody up and then adding a few fluke to the mix. On Wednesday nights bass trip, they really chewed!! Capt. Matt had the honors of starting off first with our specialty hammered diamond jigs and then switching over to bucktails at dusk. To say it was an excellent striped bass fishing would be an understatement!! Everyone carefully threw back keepers and shorts alike; looking for that one to win the big money pool. They left ’em biting and easily got their full boat limit.
Friday was another scheduled porgy trip with Capt. Matt again at the helm. The tide was right for a couple of bonus drifts on the bass on the way out. And yup, you guessed it, Bingo! Some nice bass started the trip off. Porgies once again cooperated when he anchored up with great action and full limits of Jumbo Blackhawk Scup! Not trying to be repetitious but Memorial Day weekend showed up more of the same…. nice full boat of customers and full limits of scup all around. As of this writing, it’s Sunday late morning and the Black Hawk is once again working on a full boat limit. With our huge chum pot down and working, along with the tide starting to ease off, the bite is going to go from really good to Out of this World!!
A lot of kids came out with their Dads this holiday weekend. Great to see, and fun was had by all!! Take a Kid Fishing….whether on our boat or somebody else’s. One quick footnote, the Black Hawk has added a commercial electric fish scaler to its arsenal of tackle. It can scale a porgy or seabass before you can say porgy or seabass. (well, maybe Blackhawk instead). Just another addition in our constant strive for excellence within our fishing business. There’s a reason why we were voted again, for the 3rd year in a row, Connecticut’s most popular party boat by you, the public. We thank you for the honor and we will always do our very best, in every aspect of our business, for you, our valued customer.
Heather from the office reports that we’re fishing on the weekends with some weekdays mixed in as well- check our website for a full schedule. Customers are loving our online ticketing, so they can get their tickets before they get to the dock. We only have a three dates open for June charters, so give the office a call to get your group on the boat before they’re sold out. As always, follow our website, Facebook and Twitter for fishing reports, schedules, and more!! We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
