Awesome weekend

We had a great run this weekend. Saturday we only had a half day striper trip... The bite was not quite as fast as I would have liked but we did see some nice fish and had no problem finding mackerel for bait. Absolutely perfect weather made for an enjoyable trip. Sunday was busy. We had an all day bottom fishing trip at 7am and then had a 4 hour striped bass trip after. The offshore fishing was very good. I wouldn't call it a slam job because we had to move 4 or 5 times but most of the stops were productive and we ended with a limit of very large haddock (up to 8lbs!) a decent pile of cod and pollack on top of them with some cusk and redfish sprinkled in for good measure. We had flat clam seas the whole day.
After getting the boat turned around in 30 minutes we headed right back out for the stripers. Mackerel were a little spooked and took some work to get enough for bait but once we had them the bass bit pretty good. We didn't have a very favorable tide but it didn't seem to matter much... 4 fish over 30" largest was around 36" and 5-6 that we had to throw back. 

The boat is out tonight but we have some open charter dates this week and weekend. If you would like to get out give us a call!
