Update to 10/30 & 31

     The weather got us on Weds and Thurs with nobody going out but we were the only bottom boat on Friday and had a tough day until the last drop where we caught a few sea bass and some blackfish. Went back to that spot  today and despite the bad anchoring conditions we picked some keeper sea bass and a few blackfish. Then it got worse with no wind and tide so the anchors were slack and we tried a few drifts picking a few sea bass and a porgy(thought they were gone).  Tried another area with the same conditions but did catch a few black fish. the turnout has not been good with the bottom fishing so we may switch to striped bass this week as they are starting to catch a few. Give us a call  and here are a few pics.

Last few trips update to 10/27

   We got out on Sunday and it was another rough one that made the anchoring difficult so we only picked at some fish but not good. Monday we had the Mater Dei high school kids for a half a day and they did get a nice day. Caught some sea bass, porgies and a couple of blackfish and they had a nice time. Back out on Tuesday we fished another area to find the anchoring not easy as the anchor lines never got tight but we did catch some big porgies and keeper sea bass along with a few blackfish and a cod fish that took the pool. We are not sailing Weds and Thurs with the weather and Friday is not looking good either as the seas will still be riled up  and we know what that does to the fishing. Hope to see you soon and here are a few pics.

Saturday 10/24 last half day

    We went out this morning and as we turned the hook (sandy hook) it was not nice. 
Big waves and some wind on the way out, not terrible but not nice.  Made a few drops to pick a few nice porgies and some sea bass but it was not good.  Was not looking forward to go back out and as it turned out we did not due to lack of patrons. We are now 3/4 day fishing leaving at 7:30 A M returning about 2:30 - 3 P M. On Monday 10/26 we have a half day trip but will have a group of high school kids aboard in the morning but not sailing the afternoon,  it is an open tip of you care to join us. See you soon and this time of year watch the weather for give us a call.

Thursday opening day

     There was a good turnout for the all day bottom boats but we still got out with a small crowd.  We picked away at mostly porgies(go figure) but had some nice sea bass mixed in that we can now keep.  Made a few moves and the same result.  The porgies though, were of very nice size, especially on the afternoon trip. We will still be on the half day schedule a couple of more days before switching to 3/4 day leaving at 7:30 AM on  Sunday. Hope to see you soon and here are a few pics of the day's catch.

Schedule update

    In case one has not looked at my home page we are still on the half day schedule until Saturday 10/24, last day for half day. Staring Sunday 10/25 we will be 3/4 day leaving at 7:30 A M, only because all the other boats leave at that time and we do not want you to show up at 7:45 to find out there is not enough to go out and the others have left. It will be only one trip per day returning about 2:30 -3 P M,(except for this Monday 10/26). We have a group coming on Monday morning for a half day trip if you care to come, but there will be a bunch of high school kids. Today Sea Bass opens so hope we can put some in the buckets. See you soon and thanks for looking in.

Weekend report - not good

     We shaped up to get out both days but only made the Sunday morning trip with a handful of anglers. We tried in the bay where the fishing has been good but only a few shorts were caught. Moved out into the ocean and only caught a few keeper porgies and some sea bass that went back. Looks like the fish are moving out farther so we may have to switch to a 3/4 day schedule by the weekend, so give us a call before you come down. We will not be sailing Tuesday as the winds will kick up and it will not be too nice. Sea Bass opens on Thursday and they MAY be our last half day trips. We will keep you posted. Thanks for looking in.

Past week report

     This past week has been a slow one with only a few fishermen showing up to go fishing, maybe they are waiting for the sea bass season to open (Oct 22).  Monday we had a good turnout with the holiday and the morning fishing was decent for the porgies. The rest of the week we got out a few mornings but not all of them and a couple of afternoons.  The morning trips have been better, with mostly porgies and the best of it is in the bay but in one small area. Yesterday morning we had a high hook of about a dozen nice porgies and almost everyone caught a few to take home. We are still on the half day schedule but give us a call next week if you plan on coming down. Hope to see you soon.

Sat/Sun reports

     Due to the lack of patrons we did not make it out on Saturday morning and picked up a last minute charter for the afternoon (we do not normally take charters).  The fishing was not good even with at beautiful ocean that was not nice in the morning.  Picked a few porgies and even more sea bass, a winter flounder, blow fish, etc. We did have a beautiful sun set riding in and a nice group from GPS (plumbing supply) enjoyed the afternoon. Sunday we made both trips but staying in the bay where the fishing was better than the ocean. Had a pick of porgies for  the first couple of hours on both trips. We are still sailing the 2 half day trips this week so get a couple of friends or family together and come down. Here are a few pics.

Friday 10/9 found a few

    We went in the morning to try another area and we did find a few.  We could only make one drop because the water started getting rough  with 20 -25 mph sough winds against the out going tide. But we picked away with everyone going home with some fish but unfortunately we had to throw quite a few sea bass back. I know if one angler who caught 18 black sea bass that he had to released but he did have a couple of porgies to take home.  So hopefully things will start to pick up again. Didn't take any pics and did not get out this morning but hope to see you soon as the week's weather looks good.  We will not be sailing on the afternoon trip today, Saturday,  but will be running tomorrow and the rest of the week still on the half day 2 trip schedule, so bring some friends so we have enough to get out.

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.
