Heather from the Black Hawk reports that last week on Tuesday and Wednesday we started off fishing in some local waters as we had some wind to contend with and couldn’t make it out to Block Island. That being said, the sea bass fishing was flat out fantastic with an easy boat limit of nice size fish. After loading up on the sea bass we switched over to blackfish. It took a little while to get them to start chewing but after picking through a few shorts the keepers started coming over the rails for a boat limit of blackfish as well.
By the end of the week, we were able to get back out to Block Island and had excellent weather and fishing, with boat limits of jumbo porgies and sea bass. Friday’s trip had some nice cod in the mix as well, up to 18 pounds! Saturday’s trip was a highlight of the week, with limits of jumbo seabass coming over the rails. Jumbo porgies, a few blackfish, triggerfish and cod filled out the mix. making for a great day on the water.
Unfortunately, we lost Sunday’s trip due to the weather, but we’re looking forward to getting back out there this week. This is our last week of open trips, as starting November 4, all trips are by reservation only. As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates. Join us soon!
