Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that the last five big bass night trips have been nothing short of spectacular, I don’t know how else to say it. Full boat limits on every trip with fish consistently between 30 and to over 50 pounds, it just doesn’t get any better. A lot of customers opt to release their catch which is good to see. We will be posting more trips in the next week or so, when the tides and conditions are right again. They fill up fast, so be sure to stay tuned so you can get a spot on board.
Porgy fishing still remains excellent, with no problem getting your full limit and releasing a lot more nice. Nice big hubcap porgies to fill the freezer. Sea bass fishing is been very good. Most customers get through the shorts and have no problem filling their limit of 15 inch fish or bigger. There’s been a few fluke mixed in with them, and and handful of bluefish.
Bluefish locally in the race area is a little slow, but from time to time here are a lot of bluefish at Montauk, so hopefully some of ’em are going to swim in this way so we can start blue fishing soon.
Heather from the office reminds everyone that we’re sailing every day, Monday through Friday at 7am and two trips on Saturdays and Sundays, leaving at 6am and again at 1pm. We’ve got our Sailfest fireworks cruise coming up this weekend, on Saturday, July 13, and our Christmas in July trip for the Niantic fireworks on July 20. Both are part of our Black Hawk and the Community Program and we’d love to have you join us! As always, visit our website or check our Facebook page for updates, reports and new trips. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that our first After Work Special trip on Thursday afternoon was a success, with a lot of action on striped bass. We had 6-8 keepers with a bunch of shorts. Nothing monstrous like the night trips produce, but fish up to 20 pounds. During the slack Capt. Matt took the customers bottom fishing where everybody caught a handful of porgies and seabass now that the New York Seabass season is open.
The porgy fishing remains nothing short of excellent- no problem getting your easy limit with little difficulty and then switching over to Seabass. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of short seabass and you have to weed through them to get the 15 inch and above keepers.
We’ve got more night big bass trips coming up this week, so stay tuned for the reports on those.
Heather from the office reports that we only have a few dates left in July for charters, so be sure to call the office to get your group on board before we fill up.

As a reminder, we are fishing every day- two trips on Saturdays and Sundays at 6am and 1pm, and one trip during the week, at 7am.

We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that the three nights of striped bass fishing trips this week were nothing short of excellent. Beautiful weather and big fish up to about 45 pounds. We couldn’t ask of for anything better. We’ll be posting more soon, so stay tuned.
Porgy fishing all week has been very, very good with easy limits. On the weekends, it’s a little tougher but still nice fishing. With the seabass opening on Sunday, the boat is out as of this writing and we’re picking away on some nice Seabass and porgies. Some bluefish, short striped bass, and a few fluke mixed in too.
Heather from the office reports that we have a few dates open for charters, but they are filling up fast, so be sure to call the office soon to grab a spot. We are currently sailing 7 days a week, leaving at 6am on the weekends and 7am during the week. Please note that there is no open trip on Saturday, June 29th.
