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 ...

Heather from the Black Hawk reports that hopefully, you know us well enough by now to know that we'll give you the honest reports. When it's good, we'll tell you. When it's not...well, we'll tell you that too. The last few trips have been tough. Last Sunday and Monday were spent moving to several different grounds, and while we were able to pick away on some cod, some ling and some bergals, it was tough. Friday's trip was more of the same. We still picked away and put some cod, sea bass, ling and bergals in the coolers. Saturday's trip was more of the same. On Sunday, we finally had some improvement. We fished some new ground with a much better results, and ended up 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 continue to fish in January, weather permitting. As you probably know, this time of year the fishing can change day to day, so we'll be heading as often as possible. As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates and info. We look forward to seeing you soon. On behalf of the entire Black Hawk family, we wish you a Happy New Year and a happy and healthy 2020! ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that we did get out the last few days, but the fishing wasn't what we hoped for. Saturday had some of the best weather we could ask for, but the fishing wasn't as good. We had lots of short cod, but the big fish just didn't want to bite. We moved around quite a bit, and did have ling, bergals, sea bass, and pollock mixed in with the keeper cod we did get. Overall, it was not the bite we left before the recent storms. Sunday was tough. You know us- we'll tell it like it is, and Sunday was a tough day. We made a bunch of moves on some different grounds, but nothing was cooperating. We marked plenty of life on the bottom, but the fish just didn't want to chew. We were able to pick away at a few keeper cod with some ling and bergals, but it was a tough grind. The boat is headed out again Monday, and we will post a report after that, so stay tuned. We hope to get out a few more times before the end of the year, as long as Mother Nature cooperates. We will post these trips on our website and Facebook, so check there and join us soon. The Black Hawk crew would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. We've said it before, we have the best customers around, and hope that everyone has a happy holiday. We ...
