Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that we had another great week of fishing. The porgy and seabass fishing out at Block Island keeps getting better and better. Limits all around of jumbo porgies and giant sea bass. Wednesday was a highlight of the week, with an epic day of huge sea bass, monster porgies, and even a mako shark! You may have seen the video on our Facebook page- it put on quite the aerial show, jumping out of the water several times before it was released unharmed. If you haven't seen it, go check it out on our Facebook page! We had private charters on Friday and Saturday. Friday's trip wanted bluefish, and despite the wind we still loaded up. The conditions were definitely not in our favor but that didn't stop our group of diehards! We had a bunch of short striped bass and a few keeper sea bass mixed in as well. Saturday's trip wanted to bottom fish, and they got 'em- an excellent day of fishing meant everyone left with bags of fillets. Our night bass trips last week were a mix of good and not so good. As with all of our trips, we don't sugar coat our fishing reports. Although our night bass trips on Saturday and Sunday were very successful with fish to 35lbs last night's trip was a bust. Anyone who fishes Montauk on the flood tide with an east wind can tell you it creates tough drifting conditions and ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that the fall bite continues! We had another week of excellent bottom fishing with plenty of porgies and sea bass, a few cod mixed in, and even a few striped bass in the mix as well.  Earlier in the week we had a bit of wind to contend with, but had a plan B and stayed local - and did well with the porgies and seabass. Our private charter on Friday had a great group from Cheshire and simply phenomenal catching! The porgies were huge and hungry and the monster sea bass flying over the rails all day long! We ended the day with a boat limit of big sea bass and bonus season limits of XL porgies all around the boat. Saturday's night trip was the first of our fall night bass trips, and it was a beautiful night.  With many first time customers, we had our boat limit many happy anglers- for many of them, it was their first striped bass.  We'll be doing more of these trips as the fall bite continues. We'd like to give a special thanks to our customer Paul, who brought a huge donation of cleaning supplies, sheets, and blankets down to the boat for Always Home, a local organization helping families overcome homelessness.  They were thrilled with the donation and we were so happy to be able to help.  We've got the best customers around! The fall bite is red hot right now! Join us soon- ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that we had another good week of fishing. We had some weather to contend with on a few of the trips, but we went to some alternative spots and overall the fishing was excellent.  We had an absolutely perfect weekend, with beautiful weather and excellent fishing.  Plenty of seabass and porgies- now's the time to fill the freezer!

We continue to fish daily, with a few dates reserved for private charters.  Be sure to give us a call or check the website when planning your trip.  We look forward to seeing everyone soon! ...

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 ...
