Capt. Greg Dubrule of the Black Hawk reports another week of excellent bottom fishing. Literally, jumbo porgies and huge knot head sea bass are climbing on the baits as soon as they hit the bottom at Block Island. Customers are having no problem catching their limits and filling their coolers. A few codfish, trigger fish and even some winter flounder are also added to the mix. It’s simply excellent fishing. Saturday’s trip had quite a few families on board and the kids had a ball, with beautiful flat calm sea conditions, and “drop it to the bottom and you got em’ ” fishing. This fishing bonanza will continue until the closure of the season on December 31st, so plan a trip now. Why go anywhere else? We catch em…Ask Around! We’ll be moving the Black Hawk to our winter dock in Stonington Borough around the first of November. More codfish will be showing up as the waters chill, so stay tuned to our website and Facebook page.
Blue fishing still remains excellent in the Race with both both tides producing all you could want. As of this writing, Capt. Matt is out with Sunday’s trip and everyone’s catching heavy on the diamond jigs . They might have showed up a little late this year but they’re here now in numbers, so come and get em’! We’ll have night bass trips this week with the new moon. These past full moon trips have been excellent and we anticipate more of the same with the new moon cycle this week. Reports on all trips are posted daily; good, bad or indifferent, you’ll get the straight scoop.
Heather from the office reports that we are sailing daily at 7:00 am for the rest of October. There are several dates when we have charters, and as you know, Mother Nature can be difficult to work with in October, so it’s always a good idea to call before you head down. Give our office a call-860-448-3662- and we’ll give you the most up to date fishing report and schedule. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
