“Another week of excellent porgy fishing,” reports Capt. Matt from the BlackHawk. Wednesday turned out to be the hottest trip of the week, with a “BlackHawk Blitz” for over an hour. Fish coming over the rails as fast as you could get em’ down on the bottom! Coolers filled up fast, with full limits for everyone on board and we were on our way home early. This past weekend, trips showed us miserable weather with wind and rain but a steady pick throughout. More fish seem to be moving in all the time, with a lot more bluefish shagging bait everywhere.
Capt. Greg had the honors on the first Friday night bluefish/bass trip. Weather certainly wasn’t the best; a stiff, northeast bone-chilling wind for most of the trip. Fortunately, since we were fishing up in the Greenport area, which offers a lot of protection, even with the wind, sea conditions were calm. We tried a few spots on the way up, which only produced a bluefish or two before landing on a good pile of bass and blues.
We “Blackhawked” em’ for over an hour, with everyone getting a bunch; with several nice keeper bass to 34”, with a lot of shorts in the mix. We eventually anchored up with the bait; had to move once, and ended up with a delicate pick for the remainder of the trip. We’ll again be night fishing this Saturday and Sunday of the Memorial Day holiday weekend, leaving at 5:00 pm. As more bluefish are coming all the time, these promise to be action packed trips. Spots are limited, so book yours now !
Heather from the office reports that there are only a few days open for charters in May and June, so if you want to plan a trip, contact us soon to get it on the calendar. There’s also only a few days open for our new fundraisers, Cruisin’ for a Cause. We’re looking forward to helping so many community groups this summer. Be sure to grab your date soon, these last few dates will likely be gone within the next week. As always, check our website for details and updates about trips, schedules, reports and more. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
