A few upcoming summer updates: First off our much awaited Night Striper trips begin this coming Saturday Night June 16th at 7pm by reservation. For the 16th, 23rd and 30th a Night Bass trip will be offered by reservation online at 7pm. Starting July 5th we will expand to a Wednesday through Saturday Night sailing schedule at 7pm by reservation online. Trips can still be reserved over the phone but the online way for this trip is the preferred method. Photos courtesy Capt. Mike and Roger.
We are also now booking for Sunday Summer Cod. Our first trip is set to sail July 15th at 5am with a return time of 3pm aboard the Lady Frances. For those of you who grew up like me catching nice size cod in comfort without having to don all the layers, you know EXACTLY of what I speak!! Trust me there is nothing like catching cod in in short sleeves!! These cod trips this summer on Sundays will be offered on the Lady Frances for premium angler comfort. This trip is a limited load trip by reservation only!! Reservations for this trip can be taken over the phone. Some warm weather cod pics from last year are provided courtesy of yours truly.
One may wonder why some trips can be booked over the phone and some online. Well here at the Frances Fleet we are in the process of testing a new online reservation system and since there is such a varied menu of trips offered, the prudent decision right off the bat was to try the online booking for the trips that required reservations in the past and trips that we thought would initially have the highest level of online booking interest. Trips which can be booked online now for added customer convenience are Night Striper, Night Squid, Half Days and Whale Watching.
