Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that our first official night squid trip of the 2019 season was a smashingly successful event. Flat calm weather conditions on Friday night permitted us to drift the entire night, and that coupled with the extensive underwater lights that we’ve had installed this year produced nonstop action all night long. We’d like to thank Dura-Brite lights (www.durabritelights.com) for helping us with all of our marine lighting . If you want to really light up your world at night then Dura-Brite are the lights you need. This night squid fishing is a very short-lived event, so plan accordingly. We will be running three more trips this coming week Wednesday night, Friday night and Saturday night. Bring your spinning rods and a handful of good squid Jigs and come and get inked on the Black Hawk.

Our day trips and the spring porgies still remains excellent. Our customers are having no problem filling the coolers and getting their limits. In addition there’s been a few fluke, striped bass, weakfish and bluefish being caught in addition to sea bass, which unfortunately have to be returned to the water since the season is not open yet. We’re looking forward to a great season!

Heather from the office reports that we’ve added the new squid trips to our website, so be sure to grab a spot soon before they sell out. We’ll continue to sail Saturdays and Sundays at 6:00 am, with weekday trips being announced on a weekly basis based on our charter schedule. Stay tuned this week for details about a very special upcoming trip as well.

The “Uniting for United” food drive has started, so don’t forget to bring down your canned goods and help us fill two trucks before the deadline on June 7. We’re looking forward to a successful food drive!

As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates and info. A few June charter dates are open, so contact Heather to get your group on the calendar. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that full cooperation from jumbo porgies made for excellent early spring porgy fishing this week. Probably some of the best we’ve seen this early in any season. Nice, big stuff too. More and more bait showing up as well. There’s been a few striped bass caught, some weakfish, and a few fluke to go along with the mix. The best part is that it’s simply going to get better.

A few more squid showing up so we’re planning our calamari Safari this Friday night. Space is limited, and reservations are required.

Heather from the office reports that we’ll be adding more trips soon, including some night bluefish trips and more squid trips so stay tuned. They’ll be posted on our website and are sure to fill up quickly, so keep watching our site and Facebook for updates.

We’re also looking forward to participating in the Uniting for United regional food drive. We know we have the best customers around, and our goal is to collect at least 2 truckloads of food! Please bring some non-perishable food items when you come for your trip and help us help the local community!

We’ll be fishing on Saturdays and Sundays, leaving at 6am, with weekday trips added in around our charter schedule each week. Check our website for a full schedule. There are a few days left in May for charters, and very few in June, so if you want to get your group on the boat, be sure to give the office a call soon. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that the 2019 fishing season got off with a bang this weekend with some really good early season porgy fishing. With the good weather on Saturday we had a full boat and a lot of action- some limits were met with no problem and everybody had a good time catching their fill. This seems to be a big biomass of scup this year, and certainly earlier than usual . Hopefully more and more will keep piling into the area. In addition, a few seabass were caught but unfortunately had to be returned as the season is not yet open. Some short fluke and short striped bass were also all returned to fight again another day. A lot of bait shimmering on the water and the birds were seen working too. All the indications of a really super spring of fishing. Sunday the weather was against us with a damp rain and drizzle for most of the day which kept our numbers down to the diehard anglers. Once again, as on all trips, some people had their limit while others caught 10-15. Overall a great first weekend- we’re looking forward to a great season!
