Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that it looks like we'll be taking a break for a bit to let the fishing improve. The weather certainly hasn't been cooperating, and the fish just haven't biting like we'd like them to.  We don't want to take people out for just a boat ride- we're not that kind of boat.  We want to give everyone the best opportunity to catch.  So, we're going to hold off for a bit until the fishing improves.  When it does...we'll be ready.  (We're ready now.... come on, fish!) Be sure to stay tuned to your email (join our specialty trip list for last minute trip info), our website, and Facebook to get all the info for when we head out again. In the meantime, we'll be heading out on some seal watches soon- stay tuned for details about those. We're also getting ready for our winter shows- stay tuned next week for the full line-up of where we'll be and when we'll be there.We look forward to seeing everyone soon! ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports we did get out last Sunday, January 13. It was kind of a struggle with a handful of codfish, pollock, ling, haddock and other bottom dwellers. Still a few porgies and sea bass around, but with the season closed those had to be returned. We spent our weekend at Mohegan Sun Casino for the CMTA Hartford Boat Show. It was a great show in a new beautiful location. We got to see some old friends and meet some new ones. Congrats to all of our hourly fishing trip winners, as well as all the kids who ""fought like a fish" to win a free trip on the boat. We look forward to seeing you on the boat this summer! Stay tuned to our website and Facebook, as we will post trips there as we're planning on heading out when the weather allows. We also are planning some seal watches in the near future, so stay tuned for more info about those. As always, check our website for info and updates, and we hope to see everyone soon! ...

Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that we haven't had much weather to work with since the first of the year. High winds and rough sea conditions of plagued not only us but the other handful of boats that are fishing at this time of the year. We did get out two times this week, Saturday and Sunday. Both days were kind of a struggle with a handful of codfish, pollock, ling, haddock and other bottom dwellers. Still a few porgies and sea bass around, but with the season closed those had to be returned. We will be starting our show circuit this week with the Hartford boat show at the Mohegan Sun Casino this Thursday through Sunday. Come on down and meet the crew and see the great white shark. Heather from the office reports that we will continue to fish when weather permits. We also are planning some seal watches in the near future, so stay tuned for more info about those. As always, check our website for info and updates, and we hope to see everyone soon! ...

Heather from the Black Hawk office reports that last Sunday was another slow day. We covered a lot of ground and picked away at the fish but never really found a pile to work on. We ended the day with a few haddock and sea bass with a few short cod as well. Monday, New Year's Eve, was on the slower side as we were hampered by dogfish. We had a great group of anglers out with us, anxious to get out for the last trip of 2018. We made a bunch of moves and fished different grounds but the bite never materialized. We ended the year with a few cod, sea bass and haddock with a nice mix of ling and bergal. There is plenty of bait in the water, so the stage is set for things to turn around for the better and we will continue to stay on the grind until it does. Unfortunately, Mother Nature just didn't cooperate this week, and the winds just didn't allow us to get out. We're hoping the weather will cooperate soon so we can get out this weekend. We are looking forward to getting back out on the water in 2019. We will continue to fish as the weather allows. As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates and info. We wish everyone a very happy New Year and nothing but the best in 2019! ...

December 30, 2018

Capt. Greg from the Black Hawk reports that on Wednesday, we put in a long one on the water. We had some wind to contend in the morning, and some fish didn't want to cooperate. We moved around a bit and found a nice pile of sea bass to work on with some pollock, ling, and bergall mixed in. We put in some overtime and made a stop on our way home and hooked up on a bunch of big cod fish at the end of the day. Overall, we managed to get a pretty good day out of it.   Thursday, however....well, there's just no way to sugarcoat it.  We put in a lot of time, made a lot of drifts and dropped the anchor on a few occasions, but the fish just would not cooperate. It was a tough grind that ended with a handful of cod, a few haddock, pollock, and bergal. We had a great group of guys who chartered the boat for their annual fishing trip, and they fished hard and put in the time and effort, it was just one of those days that didn't work out the way we wanted.   There is plenty of bait in the water, so the stage is set for things to turn around for the better and we will continue to stay on the grind until it does. We will continue to fish as the weather allows.  As always, check our website and Facebook page for updates and info.  We wish ...
