Captain Cole reported a decent catch on the full day grounds. the morning started off slow with next to no drift. Anglers worked jigs to get the fluke to bite but it was a tough start. We got the afternoon breeze and started to pick away drift after drift. By trips end we had a decent catch with some limits around the boat. Both jigs and bait rigs worked well. We are stock with plenty of local squid and spearing to get the best chance of catching. Pink shine gulp was also the hot color today.
Captain Rich reported a good day on the full day fluke grounds. We had great weather and good drift all day. Anglers were able to dial in and catch good bags of fish and shorts to keep anglers busy all trip long. Biggest fluke on the day was around 6 pounds. Sailing this week weather permitting at 7am.
Captain Cole reported a better night on the grounds. We were able to find some good pods. it was a chip all night with goof flurrys mixed in. High hooks had over a bucket with most having a good bag to leave with. Plenty of room this up coming week.
Fishing is getting better every day. High hook boxed 6 keepers(orl) with the biggest being 6 pounds. Sailing tomorrow with plenty of room. Reservations booked online.
Early report from the fluke grounds is some nice fish coming over the rails. Long time Regular Mr. Lee with the fine 28″ slab. A few other nice fish in the 22-24 inch range and a greater showing of shorts to keep rods bent. Some nice sea bass were also released until next month. Plenty of room on this up coming weekend.
Squid fishing was OK last night. The first part of the night started off with a pick and some anglers really getting the touch. We were marking better then we have been. once a squall came through around 11 the bite shut right down. Some spots left for tonight and next week is wide open
Captain Cole reported an OK night on the squid grounds. The water was on the dirty side with the wind from the beginning of the week.. We were marking squid but did not see any on top. Those who figured out where they were hiding managed close to a bucket with other not fairing as well. The weekends weather is looking much nicer and fish should be much better on Friday and Saturday. There is still room but we except them to go quick
First mate finn reported an okay day on the squid boat.Some faired better then others but it was a slower pick then the first night. Some had single digits and others had close to 1/2-1 bucket. Water quality improved as the night went on and should only be better tonight and next week.
The first fluke trip of the year started out on the slower side. We picked away on some keeper fluke and shorts. We did mark alot of bait so the season should only improve every day. Sunday did see better action on keepers at the end of the day. We are planning on trying to sail every day at 7am.
We were hoping that the wind would lay down enough for tonight’s trip but it keeps on blowing. Tonight’s trip has been canceled
We were able to sneak in the weekend for some late season cod. We had great weather but after the blow the past week it pushed in dog fish. And not just a few dogs piles and piles of them. We did manage to pick away at cod and cunners before we would get swamped. Jigs were the way to go both days to keep away from the dog. We may have a cod trip or 2 before we swap over to fluke soon.
