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!
