Heather from the Black Hawk reports that last week on Tuesday and Wednesday we started off fishing in some local waters as we had some wind to contend with and couldn't make it out to Block Island. That being said, the sea bass fishing was flat out fantastic with an easy boat limit of nice size fish. After loading up on the sea bass we switched over to blackfish. It took a little while to get them to start chewing but after picking through a few shorts the keepers started coming over the rails for a boat limit of blackfish as well. By the end of the week, we were able to get back out to Block Island and had excellent weather and fishing, with boat limits of jumbo porgies and sea bass. Friday's trip had some nice cod in the mix as well, up to 18 pounds! Saturday's trip was a highlight of the week, with limits of jumbo seabass coming over the rails. Jumbo porgies, a few blackfish, triggerfish and cod filled out the mix. making for a great day on the water. Unfortunately, we lost Sunday's trip due to the weather, but we're looking forward to getting back out there this week. This is our last week of open trips, as starting November 4, all trips are by reservation only. As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates. Join us soon! ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that things picked up last Monday after the storm. We had a few days of good fishing before the next storm came in and kept us tied up for a few days. Tuesday's trip was the highlight of the week- we had a private charter who wanted to go for some bluefish, and what a day we had! Loads of blues, a few stripers, and seabass too. Definitely the highlight of the week. We were able to get Wednesday's trip in before the conditions started to deteriorate, with the winds picking up as the day went on. Like everyone else, we stayed at the dock on Thursday and Friday, before returning to the grounds on Saturday. It was a bit of a tough trip- we found some piles of fish, but everyone had to work at it. Those who fished hard went home with solid catch of fish. Nothing like before the storms, but not bad for the first day back. It should get better and better as things calm down after the high winds. We plan on fishing daily through October- check our website for updates, as there are a few days when we have private charters and aren't available for open trips. At this time of year, it's always a good idea to call the day before your trip as well, to check on weather conditions and updates. We'll continue to fish in November as well, and our schedule will be ...

Heather from the Black Hawk says it's a short report this week! We lost all week due to the strong winds and rough seas. As of this writing (Sunday afternoon) the boat is still out on our first trip after the storm. We never know exactly what it will be like after a storm like that- fish can move around, the water gets all churned up, and we just never know what to expect. Check our Facebook page for updates once the boat gets in. We're planning on fishing most days- but, as we learned this past week, Mother Nature can be tough- so please give us a call the day before your trip for updates. As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates as well. We look forward to seeing everyone soon! ...

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- ...
