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 ...

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 ...

Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports another excellent week of weather has provided simply sensational fishing on the all day trips, leaving at 7 am for monster sea bass and jumbo porgies. The Montauk-Block Island areas are still the place to be, with full limits on both species, with a few fluke, codfish, and short striped bass added to the mix. If you’re thinking of filling the freezer, now’s the time and the Black Hawk is your boat. On the weekend half day trips, we’ve been fishing in the local Watch Hill areas. Again, we've had excellent fishing on mostly medium and large porgies, with only a handful of keeper sea bass. Capt. Matt reports the bluefishing in the “Race” has greatly improved, providing a lot of action in the Thursday and Friday After-Work Special 4 pm trips. These trips are by reservation only and limited to only 30 fishermen. The blues have been on the large size, providing tackle-busting action. If you want to receive sore muscles, these are your trips! An assortment of sub-legal striped bass are climbing on the diamonds as well but not much on the keeper variety. When conditions and time permits, Capt. Matt has been doing some bottom fishing on the scup and sea bass on some of these trips besides. Still tremendous amounts of bait around the entire area; quite a few big mackerel being caught on all the trips. Thresher sharks are seen quite a bit in the surface while traveling ...

Another tremendous week of bottom fishing reports Capt. Greg of the Black Hawk. The Montauk and Block Island areas are producing larger seabass and porgies with an occasional fluke. It seems the local areas along Fisher's Island and Watch Hill are just loaded with smaller size porgies with a handful of keeper seabass. Smaller in size but fantastic quantities. You can almost drop a piece of clam, sandworm or squid anywhere and catch one. Blue fishing still remains spotty with certain tides and certain areas producing a limited amount of fish. We're still hoping that it improves although time is running out. Heather from the office reports some good news for Capt. Greg. As an active member in the Marine Trades Association, Capt Greg played in their annual golf tournament last Thursday. The tournament was played at River Ridge golf course and the Black Hawk not only won with a low score of 58, but Capt. Greg made a hole in one! He was even luckier when he found that the hole had a prize attached, and Capt Greg won a brand new 2019 Subaru Forester from Reynolds Subaru in Lyme. Congrats, Greg! We continue to fish daily at 7am during the week and at 6am and 1pm on the weekends. Our schedule will change slightly after Labor Day, so be sure to check the website for updates. We have a few dates left for charters at the end of August and early September, but they're going fast, so if ...
