Sunday 8/30 Son beats dogfish dad

     In the morning we were shocked to see so few anglers down on a beautiful Sunday. We went out starting locally producing some keepers on the first two drifts and then ventured out farther in the channel to pick away with good short action and some more keepers mixed in. It was a long drift that gave us a longer ride in but it was worth it.  Gene Stroz ended up with 2 keepers as did Jake and Dru Polansky including the pool. Had other keepers around and everyone caught fish. The afternoon trip was also disappointing on the turnout but we did get some beauties. Vinnie Battista of Staten Island took the pool with his 7 1/2 lb lunker(no dogfish for him), and Jong-Kyu Park came in close second with his 6 1/2 lber plus another keeper. Other keepers around the boat made it a nice afternoon. Looks like a nice week so come on down and not fight the summer crowds. here are a few pics.

Fri/Sat reports More keeps than peeps

    We have seen a reduction in people fishing this past week with vacations over and parents getting kids ready for school. Saturday afternoon was surprisingly light despite the nice weather. Drifting only one side, we put together a nice catch of more keepers then customers on board. The morning trip was not as good  but we did pick both keepers and shorts on almost every drift. some anglers the last couple of days getting 10 to 15 shorts but only one keeper. David Pearlstein stayed on for the afternoon trip Friday and got the pool with his one keeper. Wayne Speranza took it on Saturday morning and Backpack Bobs friend Rob got it on the afternoon trip. Here are a few pics and hope to see you soon.

Weds /Thurs reports

     We had good turnouts for the morning trips the last 2 days but not in the afternoon and going out with light crowds. So if one wants some room on the boat try the afternoon trip leaving @ 1:30.  Put a catch together on Weds morning but in the afternoon the winds picked up against the tide so it made drifting a little slow and it got a little rolly. Thursday morning, another nice one, we only picked slowly at shorts with a few keepers mixed in as was the case in the afternoon too. David Pearlstien took  the pool in the afternoon staying on from the morning trip. Kenny took the pool in the morning with his only keeper. Here are a few  pics.

Mon/Tues reports - little guys rule

    The last couple of days we have seen a few more little guys coming out and catching their first fluke. Although we are not seeing the short action we  had last week we are picking with some keepers mixed in. Monday's pool winner Rich Wehringer had 2 keepers and little William O'Donnell got his first fluke. On the afternoon trip the Eldrige party of 4 ended up with 5 keepers and the pool. Pictured is Cody Eldridge and Kyle Milne. Just a few keepers on Tuesday morning with not too many fisherpeople showing up because of the WRONG weather forecast AGAIN. Same on the afternoon but we had better fishing with Little Finn  @ 4 1/2 getting 2 keepers with help from dad. Looks like nice weather this week so come on down. Here are a few pics.

Weekend report

     We got a decent turnout  on the weekend but not the bigger crowds we have been carrying.  working with the conditions we put together a nice catch on Saturday morning with ok short action. Forgot the camera but Ayla Aviles showed her father Vito up by nailing a 5 3/4 lber  only to get beat by Stan Balewitz  with a 6 3/4 lb pool winner. On the afternoon trip it took forever to get a drift but then we picked slowly at shorts and some keepers. Sunday morning and afternoon were  also decent relatively speaking, with Jennifere Girardi taking the pool with a 5 lber in the morning and little Noah Hahn got a couple of keepers in the afternoon. Here are the pics from Sunday.

Thurs/Fri reports *%# weatherpeople

     On Thursday we had breezy conditions again, especially in the afternoon.  Dan Olgalvie took the pool in the morning with his one keeper and asked me to say that this one is for you "Doc" Jenkins (sorry if the spelling is wrong). Jenkins has been a long time customer but is home with health issues, our regards to him. A light crowd in the afternoon but we still picked shorts an a few keepers despite the wind.  Friday morning the rain stopped early and it turn out to be a very nice day but not many showed up.. Karen Kerney took the pool with her 6 lb beauty which had been the first keeper she caught in several trips on other boats. Her and her companion Steven Leighton combined for 3 keepers and Dave Harzold  had 2 keepers. On the afternoon trip the wind died and also the tide so we didn't have a drift half the afternoon. When we did start moving we picked at short, sea robins and couple of keepers. Looks nice today so hope to see you, here are the pics.

Tues/Weds 8/18-19 reports - better lucky than good

     Only fair fishing as far as keepers go but decent short action the last two days. Weds morning the first keeper was a beauty by 10 year old Ryan Salerno weighing in at 6 3/4 lbs almost as big as him. He was beaten by first timer Barbara Franco (with a rod rental) who landed a 7 1/4 lber to take the pool. On the afternoon trip the winds really kicked up so it got a little choppy but not terrible. We tried in close but only a couple of shorts so went out a little more to find a few keepers. We did with better short action and Victor Arnao boating a 7 1/2 lb beauty for the pool.  Nothing that big on Tuesday but here are some pics from the last 2 days. Weather looks ok today but watch it for tomorrow.

Sun/Mon reports.

    On Sunday morning all the half day boats had a good turnout so we knew it would be tough to please a large group. Well I think we did with very good short action to keep everyone busy and some keepers around the boat with Bob Caputo taking the pool. On the afternoon trip we had half the people, which is generally the case, and teacher Bob Sabo got the pool with one of his three keepers. Monday morning was not as good keeper wise but we did have decent short action, although Mike Mezuk did get 3 keepers and Also Camargo 2 but James Fallon got the pool. Monday afternoon we had a very light turnout and the afternoon started slow with no drift but ended with good action when we stared moving better. Tony Hudson with a 4 lb pool fish and couple of fishermen had multiple keepers. Here are some pics and don't forget the afternoons have been cooler with the sea breezes.

Sat 8/15 - 9 1/2 lb doormat and more

     We had a nice morning with a long drift that produced lots of shorts and some keepers mixed in. We then had to move to another area because of the tide starting to run. On the next drift there was slower action but more keepers including Manny Ferigno's  9 lb 8 oz fluke so we ended up with a nice amount of keepers. On the afternoon trip the southerly winds kicked up as they did the day before but made it very comfortable on the water. Made some long drifts picking at shorts and a few nice keepers.  First was Bob Coughlan with a 4 1/2 lber, then Margret Espinoza with a 5 lber and then Pat Lamb to take the pool with a 5 1/2 lber. plus other keepers around the boat. So if your concerned about the heat the next couple of days, come in the afternoon. Here are the pics from biggest on down.
