Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that it seem like the wind fan was on high for most of this past week, limiting where we could go. We still stayed local and clobbered the porgies with a good mix of Seabass, and even a few bluefish and a few fluke. We seemed to have quite a few kids in the mix the last few trips and everybody had a ball with their parents catching jumbo scup and filling the coolers. On Friday, Capt. Matt even went outside to a few close wrecks and did a pretty good number on the jumbo seabass. We’re starting up our night bass trips this week with our first trip being on Monday so stay tune for the report.
Heather from the office reports that we had our last “sunset seal watch” of the season on Saturday night and it was a great success. Lots of seals and everyone had a great time. We’re proud to have raised well over $2,000 for 6 different local organizations. We can’t wait to do some more seal watches in the winter!
We’re fishing every day, leaving at 7am. We’ll be posting some more night trips soon, so stay tuned for dates and times. As always, check the website and Facebook page for info and reports. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
“It just doesn’t get any better,” reports Capt. Greg Dubrule from the Black Hawk. The Montauk/Block Island areas are simply loaded; providing red-hot action at the rails. Satisfied customers have jumbo sea bass and monster porgies, with an assortment of fluke, trigger fish, bluefish, mackerel and even a few striped bass mixed in. Check out our website or Facebook and get the straight scoop, right from the wheel house; no “sugar coated reports” here. Don’t forget, we’re sailing daily at 7:00 AM, so plan your fall trip or charter accordingly.
Tuesday was the CT Charter Party Boat Association’s Promotional Fishing Tournament “Fishing with Fisch”, to raise funds for the Hometown Foundation, including Special Olympics and breast cancer research. The blockbuster event involved most of the party and charter boats in the CCPBA, along with many corporate and local sponsors. A great afternoon, with perfect weather and wonderful fishing was had by all. Hundreds of participants and boat crews gathered afterwards for food and prizes. A smashing, successful event, that will hopefully get bigger every year.
Hurricane Dorian put the scare in everyone as the weekend approached. Capt. Matt got Friday’s trip in by fishing the protected Watch Hill areas with calm conditions, in spite of stiff Northeast winds that kept everyone else tied to the dock. Saturday’s trip was a different story and unfortunately was cancelled as high winds Friday night and early Saturday morning made every boat cancel trips.
As of this report, Capt. Matt is currently out on Sunday’s trip and as of mid day that fishing is excellent, with many customers approaching their limits on jumbo sea bass.
Heather from the office reports that we continue to fish daily at 7am. Our last Sunset Seal Watch was postponed due to Dorian, so we’ll be heading out this Saturday night instead. Come join us!
We’re getting loads of calls for our night striped bass trips- we know you’re excited to get back out there! We will be posting trips soon, and at this time it looks like we’ll be heading out around the 3rd/4th week in September. so stay tuned for the exact dates and times. Get your bass bucktails and eels ready! We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
Capt. Greg of the Black Hawk reports that the porgy fishing and seabass fishing still remains nothing short of excellent. Now the bonus season (September & October, 50 porgies and 7 seabass per person) makes it even more attractive. Now’s the time to come fishing! On our all day trips we’re fishing the Montauk/Block Island areas- coolers are filled, limits are met, and people are happy. We’ve even had some triggerfish, fluke, and a handful of bluefish on these bottom fishing trips.
Our half day weekend trips came to a close this Labor Day weekend. These trips had been fishing in the local areas where there is very good porgy fishing- not the sizes of where we go on the all day trips and not nearly as many seabass- but still providing excellent half day fishing. From now on, all of our trips will be our full day trips.
Our After Work Special trips, on Thursday and Friday afternoons, have been fishing for blues and bass. We’ve had a variety of blues both big and small, a lot of short striped bass and handful of seabass hitting the diamond jigs. Our last After Work Special will be Friday, September 6, so plan on joining us!
A lot of people have been asking about night bass trips. We haven’t done them in August because historically it’s been a slow month. However, we have every intention of adding more for September and October so stay tuned.
Heather from the office reminds everyone that our schedule is now one trip daily leaving at 7am. We’ll try to have 1-2 days a week be bluefishing, and the others will be bottom fishing. Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for details on these trips.
Our last seal watch of the summer is this Saturday, September 7. We’re looking forward to another great night raising funds for some great organizations.
As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates, reports, and more. We look forward to seeing everyone for some fantastic fall fishing!
