Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that the fishing this week just was not what we wanted it to be. On Friday, we had some excellent weather but the bite was not what we hoped for. We made some moves looking for better grounds but never found a pile of fish to work on. We picked away at what was there to catch and put some nice fish in the coolers but still it wasn't what we had anticipated. Hoping for improvement in the near future. In the meantime, we're getting ready for our next round of sports shows. We'll be heading to the Mohegan Sun casino for the CT Fishing & Outdoor Show February 14-16, then we'll be heading to Philadelphia and Suffern, NY. Looking forward to seeing our customers, and seeing some new faces too. Be sure to join us at a show this winter! As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates and schedule changes. We look forward to seeing everyone soon! ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that we got out two days last week, Wednesday and Friday. Wednesday was a slow grind. We had some excellent weather with flat calm seas however the fish did not want to cooperate. We marked plenty of fish and bait on the machines but they just didn't want to chew. We did have a nice shot of pollock mixed in with the cod, and we picked away on them and put some fish onboard but it never materialized into the bite we were looking for. Friday was a little better. Once again, we had some beautiful weather for late January! We got there nice and early with fresh clams and used the freshly shucked shells for chum. We were bombarded with short fish, but still had a decent pick throughout the morning, until the wind and tide changed. Then, the fish stopped chewing. We did have some nice pollock and ling in the mix, as well. Like the other boats, we are waiting for some improvement and hoping for that big hit of keeper cod. As fun as the short fish are to catch, we are held to a 21" size limit, and short fish just don't make it to the cooler. We plan on fishing again this week, Wednesday and Friday, and will add more trips for the weekends if the weather allows. As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates and more info. We look forward to seeing everyone ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that our trip last Tuesday was an absolutely beautiful day with some great fishing, as well! The cod started to chew right off the bat and we continued to pick away at them all day. There were plenty of ling and bergals mixed in with solid catch quality cod. High hook had 7 keeper cod with others having multiple fish as well. Overall, a nice trip on the winter cod grounds. Saturday was a bit different, and it seemed like the cod fishing has reverted to the way it was a few years ago- the first boat on the grounds gets them coming and the rest of the boats pick away on the outside. Unfortunately that is how Saturday's trip went for us. We put some quality fish on the boat but the quantity was not the same. We're looking forward to getting back out there this week- the weather looks good so we're heading out Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. These trips will fill fast, so be sure to grab your tickets online. As always, stay tuned to our Facebook page and website for details and updates ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that we fished last Tuesday, and while we had high hopes, the trip wasn't quite what we expected. We started off strong with a couple of keepers on the first drift and thought we were in for a good day. We picked away at them, but overall it was a slow, frustrating day. Lots of bait, lots of shorts, lots of life out there, all of which are good signs- so we're hoping for an improvement soon. Unfortunately, due to the weather that was the only day we got out there last week. The boat is heading out on Tuesday, January 14, and then we will continue to fish as the weather allows. Be sure to check our website and Facebook page for updates. We had our first sports show this last weekend, the Garden State Outdoor Sports show, and it was great to see some old friends and meet new ones. We're looking forward to the rest of our show season- we'll be in Philadelphia, Suffern, at Mohegan Sun, and a few others. We look forward to seeing everyone soon! ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office gives a short report this week. We fished last Sunday, December 29, and got a much needed improvement after our last couple of tough trips! We fished some new grounds with a solid catch of keeper cod with a lot of shorts mixed in. We had a few haddock, sea bass, pollock, ling and bergals mixed in to round out the coolers. We'll be heading out again on Tuesday before some of our crew heads down to New Jersey for the weekend for the Garden State Outdoor Sports Show. We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Come see us this weekend! We will continue to fish as much as possible, weather permitting, so be sure to check our website and Facebook page for updates ...
