According to Capt. Chris today was yet another all out assault on the big porgies to at least 2lbs today with nearly a full boat limit. Customers also had plenty of nice sea bass to 4lbs with most anglers getting half a dozen or more sea bass apiece to add to their collection of big porgies. Three keeper fluke and four nice triggerfish and a few short fluke added some variety to the catch of scup and sea bass. Capt. Chris looks forward to another great day of porgy and sea bass fishing tomorrow on the Admiral Frances which is set to sail at 8am.
THE FLUKE TRIP IS ON FOR TOMORROW!!! CAPT. RICH WILL BE SETTING SAIL AT 7AM ON THE GAIL FRANCES SO LOOK FOR A FRESH LATE SEASON FLUKE REPORT TOMORROW AFTERNOON! THE WEATHER LOOKS GREAT FOR DRIFTING TOMORROW SO IF INTERESTED COME ON DOWN!
Capt. Rich reported somewhat better cod fishing today. The first stop was very good for some anglers. The bite seemed to be more in the bow for some reason today, sometimes that is just how it is with cod fishing. The rest of the day featured a slower chip of nice cod and a few nice size sea bass. Some big ocean perch in the mix as well today. Mike T from Narragansett RI was hi hook today with 8 fine cod to the high teens and one slammer sea bass while Jimmy from Ozone Park Queens NY was right behind with 7 nice cod to nearly 20lbs and two big sea bass. Very well done Gentlemen!! Ray and Gene from the lower Hudson Valley NY each had three cod apiece today to take home and a sea bass or two while Lou from Niantic had two fine cod and one very big sea bass to take home today. Once again the bite was super soft and both Mike and Jimmy (both longtime regulars) on some of their cod did not even feel the bite and they use braided line products! When we mean soft bite we mean it. Overall though the fishing was a bit better today than over the weekend with more fish for less people fishing and the weather was beyond awesome and we look forward to building on this in the weeks to come. Weather permitting Capt. Rich looks forward to doing it all over again Wednesday with the Gail Frances set to sail at 7am.
