Heather from the Black Hawk office reports another week of excellent porgy fishing. Customers of all ages are easily getting their limits of jumbo Black Hawk scup. A good mix of seabass, and even some fluke are filling up the coolers and putting smiles of the faces of everyone. Friday’s forecast wasn’t promising, but the weather held off until we were heading in from another fantastic trip, allowing us to get a great trip in for the die hard anglers who showed up to fish.
Capt. Matt had an excellent bass trip last Sunday night, with big fish in the 30-40 pound range. They even had a monster pool winning fish near 50 pounds! We’ll be posting some more trips soon, so stay tuned, as they will fill up fast.
Our weekend half day trips have started, sailing at 6am and 1pm. These trips are scheduled to be for blues and bass, but the bluefish remain elusive, so we’ve been porgy fishing on these trips instead. As always, we want to provide the best experience for our customers, and if that means changing up the schedule or target species, then that’s what we’ll do. We’re hoping the bluefish arrive soon, as we know there are many people looking forward to these trips!
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. As always, stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for schedule updates and details about trips. A few dates left near the end of July for private charters, so grab ’em before they’re done. This Saturday the 14th we have our Sailfest fireworks cruise, next Saturday the 21st is our Christmas in July- Cerebrate East Lyme day fireworks, and then a Cruisin’ for a Cause fundraiser for Community Speaks Out the 28th. Spaces are filling quickly for all of these trips, so be sure to call the office to get a spot on board. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
