Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that on Monday, Labor Day we went bluefishing and it was good. Unfortunately, we had to skip Tuesday because of high winds and rough seas. Wednesday we went back to the bottom fishing and it was very, very good fishing. Thursday was probably the best of the week, and we had some nice weather for it. We started off drifting on the seabass, and everybody got their limit. It was excellent fishing. We left there and went over to the porgy grounds, and anchored up on a pile of poriges, and it was just non-stop, 2 at a time action, with most people, if not getting their 45 fish limit, coming very close. Friday, Matt ran the boat, and it wasn’t as good- it was still very good but not as good as Thursday. Capt. Greg ran the boat on Saturday, it was good, but Thursday remained the highlight of the week.
Bluefishing has been nothing short of excellent on all the afternoon trips. Diamond jigging as many fish as you want, hot action through the whole tide. Unfortunately, no striped bass to report. The striped bass are pretty non-existent in the area at the moment.
There’s still a lot of bait around, and there are bluefish everwhere- there are even bluefish in the Niantic River at the dock! They’re shagging bait up on the beach, exploding in the morning, white water all over the place, just a preview of things to come!
Heather from the office wants to thank everyone for your support of our Underwear Drive so far. We’re getting ready to send our shipment down to Texas to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Your support is incredible, thank you so much! Don’t forget, grab some undies wand bring them down to the boat for your next trip to help those in need!
We continue to fish daily, leaving at 7:00 am. Sundays and Mondays are for bass & blues, Tuesday through Saturday for porgies and seabass. Don’t forget, there is no trip on Thursday, September 14, and our trip for Saturday, September 16 is by reservation only. All other trips have tickets available online or at the dock. As usual, check our website and Facebook page for updates, reports, photos and more! We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
