Yet another windy weekend ahead of us. Tomorrow Saturday is canceled due to wind. Keeping an eye on Sunday.
Captain Cole reported a decent catch on the blackfish grounds. We didn’t know what to expect after the past few days of heavy wind and seas.. We tried some shallow spots and the water temperature dropped a few degrees and it was a very slow bite. We went deeper to look for the bigger tog. We had fish up to 10 pounds just not many of them. We found some hungry sea bass and a few cod mixed in with the tog. Dont think the seasons over yet but we need a few days of nice weather.
Captain Cole reported a decent catch on the tog grounds. We tried a few new areas and found a chip everywhere we went. The wind and tide picked up after lunch and the bite was only in the stern. High hooks had limit catches. Other struggled to get dialed in on the strange bite. biggest fish was 7 pounds. A few sea bass and a cod here and there. No sail tomorrow with the gust 30 forecasted and keeping an eye on the wet and windy weekend.
Captain Cole reported a good day of catching on the blackfish grounds. It was the slowest day in a while on the keeper front but the short action was incredible. Between the tinker tog and dink sea bass we had bent rods all day long. Those anglers who waited for the biggest bites did have some nice keepers for the dinner table. Water is still very warm for this time of the year. Seemed to be a little cold shock in the upper bay water and fish have been on the move to some of the offshore deeper spots. We will get back dialed in on Wednesday.
We will be sailing the seabass boat tomorrow morning at 7am. reservations can be made online at francesfleet.com
Captain Cole reported a good catch by days end yesterday. We had the wind in the morning keeping the anchors tight and the fish snapping. The first few saw great life and a few limit catches. We had a slow mid morning with the no wind and picked a few here and there. The wind came up after lunch and they were back snapping. Almost a full limit but a few fish shy here and there. High hook had 8(orl).Nothing huge but the biggest was around 7lbs.
Weather is looking great for tomorrow and we plan on the blackfish boat. reservations are booked online at francesfleet.com Please book before 530pm Saturday weather looks like we will be tied to the dock.
Planning on sailing both boats at 6am and 7am. A few photos from yesterdays full boat limit. 3DD released to swim another day. Water is still in the mid 50 and fishing should only get better!! Make the report don’t read yesterdays report.
