Sept 2 Switching Gears

As we enter September there’s a change in the weather, and our focus. As the inshore fishery becomes more swell sensitive, we are planning to head offshore more in search of the bluefin.

 

We did do an inshore trip last weekend – caught fish, then switched gears to a couple of bluefin trips while the commercial season was closed. Regs said any fish over 73″ had to be released, so the fish we brought boatside got triple measured. As always with these brutes we lost some too.

 

Planning to give the bluefin a good go up until perhaps Thanksgiving so c’mon down.

Aug 13 Whew!

LOTS of fishing – and catching this week. Fish on every trip, with a couple of trophies in the mix. Lots of smiles, and that we like.

 

Bait has been abundant inshore allowing us to focus on catching our beloved stripers. And catch we did.

 

Highlight of the week was watching several HUGE stripers corralling a school of pogies in deep, clear water. Could not trigger a bite, but they were the fish of a lifetime. And still out there!

 

We are taking family chill vacation time till the end of the month, then back at it.

 

Best,

Aug 6 Steady

As we enter August the fishing, er catching remains pretty steady. Water temps rose to nearly 70 before taking the westerly breeze plunge, but even with that challenge we produced for a nice new client.

 

We are clearly busier than ever, so my apologies for the many “I’m sorry we are booked until…” messages.

 

The giant bluefin season is in full swing. Hoping to get my turn there, too. (Spoiler alert our Rye-based Wicked Tuna alum is having a banner season!)

June 30 Steady On

We are enjoying consistently good fishing. No monsters this week, although recent events have us now rigged with a quick release anchor to give us some chance when we are getting clocked by one of the trophies lurking about this season.

 

Mackerel bait seems to be settling in near shore; always good for the food chain and striper chasers.

 

All the best…

July 23 Back at it

We are back. Refreshed and back in the game.

 

With the exception of one Mother Nature reality check, we have had pretty consistent action this week. Mackerel have been pretty consistent. although at times perfectly happy to eat our chum but not our flies. The nerve!

 

No true trophies this week but as they say we catch what is swimming and catching r us.

 

Lots of trips coming up, and getting ready to test the tuna waters, too.

 

Our best,

July 9 Lights Out

This is shaping up to be the best season in recent years. Mackerel are settling down, pogies have made an appearance, and boy oh boy do we have striped bass!

 

Fished a lot this week, with 100% success (same goes for the season, and last two). Many fish of just over under keeper size, with a few cows in the mix. Got clocked by a brute on one evening trip that was absolutely unstoppable, after leaving a hole in the ocean on the strike. Yipes!

 

Taking some time for family this week, and then back at it again.

 

Our best,

July 2 More good news…

As June passes to July we continue to have great early season action. Increased numbers of true trophies mixed in with a large number of schoolies has made for lots of smiles and tired arms. Hoping the mackerel settle in but we are getting the job done.

June 25 Full On

We are having a great early season. Lots of ’round legal’ fish, with some bigger ones mixed in. Good numbers on most trips too.

 

Mackerel continue to be scarce, but pollock are getting it done.

 

Lots of trips on the books but always room for one more, soooo…

 

C’mon down.

2017 Preseason

Hello folks and welcome back. We are ready to go trophy hunting!

 

We will begin striped bass trips in early June. School bluefin tuna probably by August.

 

Hope we can get out there, and look forward to making memories!
