“Rods are bending non-stop as jumbo porgies, slammer sea bass, and a mix of a few fluke, bluefish and even a handful of mackerel come over the rails”, reports Heather from the Black Hawk. Captains Greg and Seth are at the helm of these 7:00 AM, all day trips with customers leaving for home with full coolers and smiling faces. “Just can’t get any better, reports Capt. Greg. “Drop it to the bottom and you’ve got ’em!” If you’re looking to show the family, kids, or grandkids a great fishing experience, now’s the time! Just an absolutely enormous bio-mass of fish; simply astounding!
On the striped bass scene, Capt. Matt is crushing em’ on the night trips. We fished Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights this week, with another one going out tonight, Sunday. Full boat limits every night, with a lot of fish pushing well over 40 lbs. Saturday night showed some big fish- special congrats to 12 year old Ethan, who caught a 41 1/2 pound bass- and reeled it in himself! Great job Ethan!. Striped bass fishing at its finest! Like our longtime motto says “We Catch Em’……Ask Around.” Come see for yourself. These specialty trips feature a limited amount of anglers and are by reservation only. They book up fast, so don’t get left out.
Locally, the bluefish still remain elusive; a few scattered here and there, but no amount to really work on. We’re all keeping our fingers crossed that this improves soon as we’ve got plenty of customers waiting!
Heather from the office reports that starting this weekend, we will be sailing two trips on Saturdays and Sundays, at 6:00 am and 1:00 pm. Weekdays we will continue to go out at 7:00 am. Tickets are available to purchase in advance on our website. Our July charter schedule is just about full, but there are a few dates left, so contact us to get your group on the calendar. We have our fireworks cruises coming up in July, and then on Saturday evenings for the rest of the summer we will have our “Cruisin’ for a Cause” sunset cruises, with each week raising funds for a different organization. These are sure to be a great time, so plan on joining us this summer! There’s so much going on, and we look forward to seeing everyone soon!
