Simply red hot fishing on the seabass and jumbo porgies reports Capt. Greg at the Black Hawk. Customers are having no problem filling their coolers with their limits. There’s also been a shot of a fluke, a lot of shorts with an occasional keeper to this week up to 5 pounds.  Action has been fast and furious. The half day trips on the weekends we’ve been fishing the Watch Hill areas where the porgy fishing has been very good. Not quite the size at Montauk but still plenty action with an occasional seabass.  If you want the very best in fishing, the most action with huge porgies and jumbo sized sea bass, with an occasional fluke or trigger fish mixed in, then the boat you want is the Black Hawk!! 

On the local scene the Race and adjacent areas has been exceptionally quiet.  The lack of consistent bluefish is disturbing. Bottom fishing is adequate during times when the tides aren’t screaming but no where like the size, numbers and consistency of the fishing in the Montauk / Block Island areas . We’re all hoping it improves soon since there’s a huge fishing population out there anxiously waiting to diamond jig these bluefish on all the local boats. Time will tell I guess . Follow us on Facebook for daily reports and pictures. We post every trip every day. No “Sugar-Coated Fishing Reports ” here. Just honest reports to help you.

Heather from the office reports that we’ll continue to fish daily, Monday-Friday at 7am and two trips on Saturdays and Sundays (6am and 1pm) through Labor Day.  Our schedule will change a bit in September when we’ll go down to one trip per day on the weekends.  Be sure to check the website for a full schedule.  We look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that the sea bass fishing has been very good. We’ve been going over to the Montauk area. Fish up to 5 pounds, beautiful jumbo knothead seabass and all the porgies one could ask for. Now is the time to take your kids fishing before they head back to school- pick a day and come join us!

We’ve noticed lately that it seems like some of the local fishing reports are a bit sugar-coated. People catch a handful of bluefish in the Race, and all of a sudden the bluefishing is excellent. A couple short striped bass and the striped bass fishing is great. Truth be told, the bluefishing is poor locally. Are there some bluefish around? Yeah, there’s a handful of bluefish everywhere, we’re even catching a few while we’re bottom fishing, but it’s certainly not good. Hopefully this will improve soon, we know that many of you want to get out there and catch ’em- we do too!

Heather from the office reports that we had another great sunset cruise last Saturday, and we’ve got another coming up this weekend for the WARM Center in Westerly. Come join us and support a great cause!

We continue to fish daily, Monday through Friday at 7:00 am and at 6:00 am and 1:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. We have our After Work Special trips running through August, and we’ve got our “Summer Seal Watch” coming up this Wednesday, and another coming the 20th. Come join us soon!
