The arrival of consistent diamond jigging on the bluefish tops the leader board this week, reports Capt. Greg of the Black Hawk. A good charge of fish have taken up residence in the Race this week, providing some dynamite action for all hands. The mid-week afternoon charters were arm weary, easily getting their limits if they wanted, and releasing dozens more. It’s the best of the 2018 season so far, and we hope it lasts! Saturday afternoon’s trip had a cooler full of jumbo sea bass for everyone on board, in addition to the blues.
The bottom fishing trips, targeting sea bass, porgies and fluke, still remain excellent. Summer might be winding down with the kids back in school soon, but the fishing is gonna remain hot for months to come. Plan your trip now to load the freezers with prime fillets.
Heather from the office reports that our schedule is now 7 days a week, sailing at 7am. We’ll be bottom fishing most days, and going for the blues and bass on Sundays and Mondays when conditions permit. Our After Work Specials continue for another two weeks, so be sure to grab a spot before they are done for the year.
We had a beautiful night last Saturday for our 5th annual sunset cruise with the WARM Center from Westerly, RI. We have two more sunset cruises coming up, on September 1 for Journey Found and September 8 for the friends of Scotland Elementary School. We’d love to have you join us and help support these great organizations. These sunset cruises have been great fundraisers for the groups we’ve been working with this summer, and we look forward to doing more of them in the future. As, always, check our website and Facebook page for updates and info, and we look forward to seeing everyone soon!
