Weds/Thurs reports - What did we expect

     With a noreaster for two weeks and an off shore hurricane the ocean was not nice. Not rough but a big swell which is worse for fishing. Caught a  handful of porgies on the morning trip  on Weds after trying in the bay where we got them a week ago and decided to go the distance in the afternoon to the east reef of Rockaway NY where the fishing was good in the morning for the other boats. Fishing was a pick at mostly shorts but enough keepers mixed in to make it ok. This morning we shot right over there to find only a slow pick of mostly shorts and a couple of keepers. Not worth the ride so we stayed local only to find it worse. Some nice sea bass and small blackfish but no porgies as we tried different drops. Not sure what to expect for tomorrow but the afternoon does not look good with south winds kicking up so you may want to plan on a different afternoon to come down. Will let you know what tomorrow brings. Here is a pic of what we have to throw to throw back.

tues 10/6 It's been a week

    Hi everybody, it has been a week since we sailed due to  the weather, but we are ready to go again. Only a few showed up today but we did have calls for tomorrow so we will be going and hopefully every day after that. But  again , just watch the weather and if you are not sure give us a call. Hope to see you on the dock as the next few days look fine and the ocean should start to lay down.

Tuesday 9/29 Porgy time

     We did not make it out on Sunday or Monday but did on Tuesday morning. With just a handful of anglers we picked away at some nice size porgies and shorts along with mixed size sea bass that we can not keep. The weather was very nice and everyone went home with fish but the forecast scared the afternoon fishermen so we did not make it out. Nobody got out this morning but we will try this afternoon for the last trip till next week with the storm coming in. Maybe we will see you and here are a few pics.

Fri/Sat reports - the last fluke

     On Friday no boats except the Sea Hunter (who had a large group coming) tried to go out being restricted on where to fish due to the weather. In the afternoon we were the only boat to try and got out with just enough to go. Conditions a little better with wind and tide together but the drift did get fast with 15-20 mph N E winds.  Picked a few shorts and keepers in a couple of different areas but it was not good although we did have a lady catching 2 keepers. On Saturday morning we were the only boat to light up and sail open ending up with a decent crowd while  telling everyone what the weather and fishing situation was and not to expect much. Same results catching a few keepers and shorts around the boat but it was cold and breezy.  In the afternoon we were again the only game in town so we sailed our last fluke trip of 2015. Jonathan Harmon took the pool but his dad was high hook with 2 keepers. Here are a few pics and remember we are now bottom fishing for porgies and blackfish on the same schedule. I do not know what to expect since we can not go into the ocean for a few more days, so we will try this morning to see. Call before you come down.

Weds PM and Thurs reports

       Ok we did not shape or go out Mon or Tues and thought we would wait till Weds afternoon but we forgot the bout the holiday and missed gong out on the morning. I apologize to you that came down in the morning but we did try on the afternoon trip and got out with a nice group but only picked a few keepers and shorts as we wire kind of restricted to where we could go. Did both trips today as it turned out very nice but again some keepers and only a few shorts and etc with sea robins and doggies. On the afternoon tip with only a handful of fishermen Paul Gamba nailed  a 4 lber and the pool fish of 6 1/4 lbs so there are still a few nice ones around. We will be trying to sail till the end of fluke on Sat 9/26 and then switch to bottom fishing for porgies and blackfish on the same half day schedule. Here are a few pic but we were lacks on the morning pics of today with Ed Scagliota getting the pool( sorry for the spelling).
