UPDATE-6-7-19

 1/2 DAY FISHING  SAILING EVERYDAY   TWICE A DAY      8AM-12:30  &  1:30PM-6PM

The fluke fishing has not improved much since the slow start to the season. We had a couple good trips with anglers boating nice sized fluke and having action on the shorts, but these trips were few and far between. One of those epic trips, sailing with a "light crowd",  not only did we get many quality fluke and short action, but we ran into a bunch of giant striped bass busting on the surface. Anglers had a blast, using topwater plugs, swim shads and bucktails, easily catching our boat limit and releasing many of the larger fish, including Matt's 40 pounder. Fluking slowed down a bit for a few days and lack of angler participation due to afternoon storm warnings kept us at the dock for the afternoon trips for several days. We had a couple of decent to good trips again with ome nice keeper fluke and a bit of action on the shorts before it slowed down again.  Since the season began, we have explored several spots not only in our Bay, but in the Ocean as well, and will keep looking. Yesterday's morning trip, with a "super light crowd" saw a bit of improvement with a better catch of nice keepers. On the afternoon trip, we had a change of plans, decided to net some bunkers looking for stripers, but instead had some action with the blues.  Jake and I are at the dock every day ready to embark on our daily fishing adventure, the next few days weather looks great, so we hope you will join us on our adventure.

MAY 25 FLUKE

 

 

The Fluke season was off to a slow start, so it can only get better from here on in. We sailed Friday morning with a light crowd and less than ideal conditions, making for a tough day of fishing. We decided to shut down on the afternoon trip and try again Sat. morning. We were out on both trips today and could only boat a couple of keepers with not much action on the shorts.

SUNDAY 4/28 STRIPERS

FINALLY, a good catch of quality stripers with a boat limit. Left the dock this morning with a light crowd, but those who ventured aboard experienced a day of good fishing. We fished new areas and were quite satisfied with the results, keeping our fingers crossed that this is a new body of bass that will stick around for a while. The weather doesn't look bad for the week, so come and get in on the fun while its happening. Check out our FB page by following the link at the bottom of the page for latest photos.

MON-WEDNESDAY UPDATE

Mon-Sailed out with a light crowd and had a slow morning, with most spots from the day before lifeless.  Anchored late in the trip and saw action on shorts, missed fish, broken lines and some quality keepers for a boat limit.     Tues-Another day with only a few anglers, used fresh bunkers, missed a bunch of bass, but ended day with some quality fish.    Wed-Fishing with fresh bunkers again today as they seem to appeal to the bigger fish. It was never fast and furious today, but we did end up with our boat limit again and chose to release some including a 30 pound beauty. The bass fishing has been good the past several days and it doesn't last forever, so grab your gear and come down and get in on the action

FLUKE SEASON BEGINS starting Friday, May 24

APRIL 26 UPDATE

Our 1st trip was Sat and we sailed with a light crowd. We struggled for most of the day, reading fish and tons of bait on every spot but most of the fish were spread out. We searched all day with unpleasant conditions and finally managed to end the day with several nice stripers. Matt was our happy pool winner with one around 20 pounds. Took Easter Sunday off to spend with family, and was back at it on Monday with only a few anglers and searched what seemed like the entire bay for most of the morning with no success. Tried to net some bait, but that too did not work out and it seemed as though nothing was going right. Made a move late in the day towards home and it payed off. Had some decent fishing on shads and crocs, putting some nice fish in the boat before the traffic got there and ended the bite. By no means good fishing but we landed a decent amount of quality fishing for the anglers on board. Monday and Tuesday were very frustrating to say the least, beautiful weather bringing better crowds, reading the fish and bait in many areas, but the fish would not bite. We used bait and jigs but not much to show for all the effort. On Thursday, we left the dock with a light crowd and a new plan of action. We spent time in the morning netting fresh bunker and were able to get just enough for all our effort. Looked for readings, anchored up and never got a bite, so we made a little adjustment and started to build the fish. It took some time for the anglers to get adjusted, but we put together a decent catch and a ton of missed fish. Geno led the way with a beautiful striper. Overall it was a vast improvement over the past couple of days. We were at the dock in the rain this morning but thee was a lack of "angler participation" so we did not sail. Decided to try netting some fresh bunker, did not work out too well, but we did hit a good striper bite and had a blast. The weather for Saturday does not sound to good, but we will wait and see before making a decision to cancel.
