Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that we hauled the boat this week for general maintenance- paining the bottom, waxing the hull, etc. and we'll be ready to head out codfishing in April. We had a great weekend in Suffern, New York at the World Fishing & Outdoor Expo. We met some great new friends and look forward to fishing with everyone this season. We're looking forward to our next show, in Edison, New Jersey, and then our final show in Hartford in April. As always, keep in touch with our Facebook page and website for updates. We look forward to seeing everyone soon! ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that while we didn't fish this week, we were still busy! We had a great seal watch on Saturday as a fundraiser for the New London Maritime Society. It was a beautiful day and we saw hundreds of seals, all while raising money for a great local organization. We do lots of these fundraisers, so if you're looking for a way to raise funds for your organization or cause, let us know how we can help! We were also getting ready for our next couple of sports shows. We'll be heading to Suffern, NY, on March 1 for the Suffern World Fishing Expo. It's always a great time and we look forward to seeing everyone there. Be sure to stop by our booth and say hello! We'll also be heading to Edison, NJ, later in March- so we hope to see you soon! ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that we brought the boat back home to Niantic. We've got a seal watch fundraiser heading out on Saturday, February 24, then we'll haul the boat for our annual spring maintenance (paint the bottom, wax the hull, etc). We'll be looking and keeping an eye on the codfishing, and if it improves like it did last April, we'll head back to Stonington and get out there. In the meantime, we'll be heading to some more sports shows in Suffern, New York, Edison, New Jersey and Hartford, Connecticut. We're looking forward to seeing everyone at these shows and meeting some new friends as well. As always, you can check our website and Facebook page for updates and more info. We hope to see everyone soon! ...

It was a busy week for the Black Hawk! On Friday, Capt. Matt went on an exploratory mission with just the mates. They went offshore to some far away wrecks, but didn't find that much - just a little handful of cod, some ling, and a lot of seabass that needed to be returned to the water. Then they jumped around just just trying to find something. Saturday's trip was just a grind- one boat did pretty darn good on a far away wreck to the Southeast, but everybody else from all the boats struggled. The codfish didn't bite where we had been fishing, west of Coxes Ledge. We had nice weather, so in another attempt to try to put something together Matt took off for a far away wreck that hadn't been hit. We put in a lot of effort for a handful of cod fish, some ling, and again some nice seabass that we couldn't keep. Given the current conditions, we're going to hold off on fishing for the next week or so until we can find some body of crowd pleasing codfish. In the meantime, we're going to do some spring maintenance in hopes that it is going to be better in the upcoming weeks. Last April, we had a pretty good shot of 'em for a few weeks, and we're hoping the same thing happens this year. We were at the Hartford Boat Show this weekend, Thursday through Sunday, and had a great time seeing old ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that the weather kind of prevented us from fishing much this week except on Wednesday. Wednesday we we got a little break in the weather, and the fishing was pretty darn good. A lot of people were approaching their limit of cod and everybody went home with a nice bag for the fillets. The weather this weekend didn't look good and unfortunately, although we had trips scheduled on Saturday and Sunday, we had to cancel them. It looks like the weather will cooperate on Tuesday, so we'll be heading out from Stonington. We hope to see you there! As always, check our website and Facebook page for more info. We've also got a busy weekend coming up. We'll be at the Hartford Boat Show Thursday through Sunday, so stop by and say hello! Capt. Greg will also be at the Salt Water Sportsmen National Seminar Series on Saturday. At the boat, at the show, or at the seminar, we hope to see everyone soon! ...
