Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that last Monday and Tuesday we had excellent combo trips- spent some time blackfishing, some time bottom fishing. The seabass fishing was excellent both days with fish up to 5 pounds. The blackfish seemed to cooperate a bit more on Monday than on Tuesday, but both trips had a good number of blackfish just before the season closed on Thursday. Friday we had some wind to contend with, which didn't make for the easiest of conditions, but the porgies didn't care! From the first drop to the last, the scup were sailing over the rail and into the pail! We still caught plenty of sea bass and cod, but it was hard to get the bait past the swarm of jumbo scup! Saturday and Sunday we had private charters with some great groups. Saturday was a windy one, but we still were able to load up on the scup, had some seabass, and a few cod in the mix. Sunday's trip had a nice weather window, and we took full advantage, getting limits of porgies, a boat limit of seabass, and a good number of cod. Overall, an excellent day on the water! We'll be moving the boat to Noank in the next few days and we will continue to sail from the Noank Shipyard for the remainder of our season. We will be adding more trips as soon as we get some nice weather later this week! As always, check our website ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that we were able to get out several days this week, and we saw some excellent fishing. Early in the week we had to fight through the dogfish, but still had a boat limit of seabass, along with some scup and nice sized codfish. The blackfish was a bit better than last week, although we still had to weed through some shorts to get the keepers. Wednesday was a great day, with another boat limit of seabass, a good number of codfish, and keeper blackfish to 8 pounds. Thursday was a great day, with beautiful weather and excellent fishing. Nice blackfish, some pushing 10 pounds, with lots of limits around the boat. Once again, we loaded up on a boat limit of seabass with a good mix of cod to 15 pounds. Saturday's weekend trip had to contend with some wind and rolly conditions, but we ended the day with limits of seabass, a good number of jumbo scup, and a few codfish as well. We've got the last of our blackfish trips this week, and hope to get out for more seabass, porgy and cod trips after the holiday. Speaking of that, the entire Black Hawk crew would like to wish all of our customers a very Happy Thanksgiving. We are certainly thankful to have the best customers around and are glad you're a part of the Black Hawk family. As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates and reports, ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that on last Sunday's trip, we had some wind to contend with, which made fishing a little tougher. However, everyone stuck it out at the rails and loaded up on the porgies and sea bass. On Monday's Veterans Day combo trip, we had an great day of catching with a nice mixed bag of fish! We had plenty of porgies with limits of sea bass all around the boat and few nice cod mixed in. We some limits of blackfish as well, with a couple in the double digits. Thursday and Friday combo trips were simply fantastic. Awesome cod fishing with fish to 25 pounds. The fish were hungry and were biting on both the jigs and clams. We also had limits of seabass, and some haddock and pollock in the mix as well. The blackfishing was good too, with many limits around the boat. As always, check our website for details and updates. Our trips are now based on the weather and will be posted as dates become available. Check the website and Facebook page for details and updated schedules ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that last weekend's Sunday trip was a real mixed bag- we had cod, sea bass, porgies , a few bluefish, and even a winter flounder! It was an excellent all around day of catching! Special congrats to 12 year old Brandon from Vernon, who caught a beautiful winter flounder. Great job, Brandon! Monday's combo trip had some excellent fishing. The sea bass fishing was a total bail job right from the start with seabass flying over the rails up to 5lb! The porgies and cod fish had to fight for a meal through the hungry sea bass, but we still put some scup and cod in the coolers, as well. After we picked up our limit of sea bass, we switched over to the blackfish. We had a lot of limits around the boat, with a few fish hitting double digits on the scale! Tuesday's private charter loaded up on the scup and sea bass, with limits of seabass and a good mix of cod to 15 pounds. Wednesday's combo trip saw nnice, big cod fish and sea bass. We had limits of sea bass, mixed with loads of porgies and some cod fish over the 10lb mark. We did have a solid catch of blackfish and the seasoned anglers were able to pick up their limit of taugs. Saturday was another day of great fishing- now is the time to join us and fill the freezer for the winter. We've added more ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that we had a good week of fishing, despite losing a few days to the weather. Monday we had some weather to contend with, but were able to anchor up and pick away at 'em. We had limits of big sea bass, a mix of scup, a couple nice cod fish, and blackfish as well. Congratulations to 10-year-old Jaden, who caught the pool winning cod fish during his first time out on the ocean! Tuesday and Wednesday were good, with limits of porgies and seabass as well as a good mix of codfish. We're seeing more and more cod on these trips now lately. Unfortunately, we lost both Thursday and Friday due to the weather. Saturday was good- beautiful weather and calm seas for a perfect fall fishing November day! We had some dog fish to fight through but everyone worked hard and filled the coolers up with some quality sea bass and a solid catch of porgies as well. As a reminder, all of our trips are now by reservation only, as we're taking a limited number of people. You can view our schedule and make reservations on our website. Don't forget to check Facebook for updates and daily reports too. We look forward to seeing you soon! ...
