Capt. Rich reported an okay day of fishing for Fluke and Sea Bass. Not as many big fish as yesterday with the pool fish around 8lbs and a handful of quality flatties in the 4lb range but mostly just nice keepers. Hi hook had four keeper fluke. A fair number of sea bass mixed in as well including some really nice size fish up to 3lbs plus a handful or two of big porgies and a few blue fish of mixed sizes. The big blue fish were on the half day this morning! Capt. Rich reported long leadered bait rigs with small spinners were the way to go today where as yesterday it was more about bucktails so it pays to have an array of fluke tackle to be prepared for a range of fish preferences. Still all in all a respectable day of fishing and continuing the theme of fishing being much better than had been expected after such a storm. Capt. Rich looks forward to more fine weather and good fishing tomorrow with the Gail Frances set to sail at 7am.
Capt. Mike reported the first Long Range Tuna Trip did not quite meet the expectations of the crew. The fishing was undoubtedly disturbed a bit by Irene. Nevertheless there was a bit of a bite with a handful of Yellows up to 60lbs, a 50lb Wahoo, a fine 150lb Sword fish and a big pile of Mahis. Some anglers did very well with Mahis catching upwards to a dozen apiece. That however is the report for this past trip. Capt. Mike looks forward to better days ahead. The next scheduled Long Range Tuna trip sets sail Monday Night at 10pm, still some spots available so if interested in booking call the office.
