A few early photos from todays light crowd. Planning on sailing everyday weather permitting at 7am by reservations only booked online.
Weather looks nice for tomorrow and we plan on sailing for cod, sea bass and scup at 7am on the Gail Frances. Reservations are required booked online. The weather after tomorrow looks a little unsettled but tomorrow looks nice.
NO sail tomorrow or Friday. We will be keeping an eye on the weekends weather.
We sailed today with a light crowd and they were treated to very good fishing. We had a good showing of codfish in the morning with many fish coming on jigs. High hooks had 3 fish on bait or jigs. Lots of shorts in the mix as well. A few fish over the slot that were returned. Some fluke still around that went in the buckets with cod, sea bass, scup, cunners and flounder. A very nice day on the water before the blow.
We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am. The rest of the week is looking a little unsettled and we are keeping a close eye on things. If you want to fish tomorrow will probably be the only weekday this week.
Captain Cole and Captain Rich reported a tough weekend on the cod grounds. Saturday days fishing was off from what we have seen this past week. Wasnt sure if it was just the fish hunkering down before the blow Sunday or we zigged when we should have zagged. We did manage some nice keeper cod, sea bass and scup for the dinner tables. Sunday was a very tough day with the conditions. We were on the anchor all day and by lunch time the wind really turned on. We did see more cod then Saturday but we were limited on what we could do. The beginning of the upcoming week does look much nicer and we will be sailing at 7am.
Tomorrow looks like a great day to get out on the water and we will be sailing at 7am on the Gail Frances.
Captain Cole reported a good day on the full day grounds. Slow on the fluke front but not a lot of effort was put in once the clams started taking over. Double header sea bass and scup started coming over the rail and filling up buckets quickly. A nice full boat sea bass limit and some cod in the mix. A very good sign for when was swap over to cod this coming weekend. Reservations are required booked online. Looking for a few more for the next few days and the weekend looks nice
We will be sailing tomorrow morning at 7am on the Gail Frances. Looks like a light wind day and the rest of the week looks a little unsettled. Plenty of room so book online at francesfleet.com
We were finally able to get off the dock after a very windy week. Saturday did see very slow fishing with the ground swell and dirty water. A handful of fluke and sea bass rounded out the day. Sunday was a much different story. We took a ride back to the island and made a day out of it it. Much better showing of fluke, sea bass and scup. Its a real mixed bag this time of the year with the boat being stocked with squid, spearing and clams. Clams were the ticket to the scup and sea bass and glup for the fluke. Sailing tomorrow morning at 7am.
Another windy North east day. We were tied to the dock the last 2 day and the next look about the same. We are hoping to be back at the rail this coming weekend at 7am for full day bottom fishing for fluke, scup, sea bass. There is still room this weekend on both days and the winds look like they are going to die down. Keeping an eye on the ground swell from Earl.
