Hey guys. We had a pretty good day today with a lot of action. We had a few guys with limits and some with two or three. Others with none of course. Everyone caught fish though. Nothing real big today. Pool fish went around four pounds.
The weather was decent in the morning and we did have a light bite on the blackfish on the first stop. We did manage to get some shorts with only a few keepers. We bounced around a little bit only to find the same. We decided to take a little bit of a boat ride and it was worth the trip. We did get some nice quality keepers for the rest of the afternoon. Jimmy the Watchman took the pool with an 8lb 12oz. Guys on the boat some managed to get up to 3 keepers up to 5lbs. Roy from Hamilton, NJ had 3 keepers and lost a Jumbo, he had him 1/2 way up and broke his line - the fish was definitely over a double-digit fish. They did bit consistently for the remainder of the day.
Hey guys. We had yet another beautiful winter day today. Can't beat the warm weather we're having. We didn't catch a ton of fish today but we did catch quality fish ranging from 4 to 12lbs. Bobby had a limit and a bunch of shorts to take high hook bragging rights. Charlie and Greg(chick pea) had a couple in the 7-8lb range and Jack took the pool today with a 11.14lb. beauty wich was released to fight another day. We sail everyday from 7 30 AM to 3 30PM. The guys always have the boat lit up and ready to go by 5 15 AM. See you in the morning!
Hey guys, went with a light crowd today. Fishing wasnt all too great but we had life for the better part of the day. Tyler won the pool with a JUMBO weighing in at 10.14lbs which he released to fight another day after the photo!!! Sailing everyday from 730am-330pm.
Hey guys, first of all, NO SAIL TOMORROW 1/1 DUE TO HIGH WINDS. The fish chewed pretty well all day today. We had a high hook of 4 keepers, a couple guys with 3, and a couple with 2. Capt. Howard took the pool again today with a 4+lber, the guy is on fire!!! Tons of short action to keep you on your toes and interested as well, so come get some! Next shape up is Wednesday 1/2. We'll see you then!
Hey guys. Not the best today but still a decent pick. Howard took the pool again today with a nice 5+ Blackfish. We sail everyday from 7 30 AM to 3 30 PM. Regular schedule for New years Eve and New year's day. See you soon.
We had a great day today with a boat-load of regular customers, it almost felt like summertiime!!! Our first stop today was productive. We did have life all around the boat for a few hours. Some guys were lucky to catch 3-4 keepers, some guys caught 2-3. In the mix were 14 and 14 1/2 fish all around the boat. The bite died down in the afternoon, we decided to go out to the East where we did manage to catch some more quality keepers with little shorts. It was a nice day overall with great customers. No sailing on Friday due to high winds. We will keep you posted for Saturday.
The day started out decent where we had bites all around the boat. Some guys managed to get some keepers right from the start. In the mix were fish that were almost keeperes. The bite slowed down and we took a little bit of a ride and managed to pull some nice keepers on our second stop. Towards the end of the day on our final move, we had a shot of some really nice quality keepers with shorts in the mix. The hot stick today was Jimmy the Watchman that had his limit by 10AM. Jimmy also took the pool with a nice roaster. See you in the morning for our Christmas Eve trip 7AM to 2PM.
Hey guys! The weather man blew it again! Game on fishing today. Beautiful ocean, great people and lots of quality keepers! Most guys had there limits with just a couple guys falling just shy. Non stop catching today on the Cal. Tomorrow is a wash out. We'll keep you posted about Monday. We sail daily from 7 30 AM to 3 30 PM for $70! Not $125! We supply green crabs and always have whiteleggers on board.
Hey guys. We had a bumpy ride out this morning that turned out to be another beautiful day on the water with great people and good fishing. We had a few guys with their limits. Some with three and four and as always we had the conservationist who didn't want to hurt any. LOL. There was action all day long. Chris took the pool today with a 6.4 lb. Blackfish. We sail everyday from 7 30 AM to 3 30 PM. The guys have the boat lit up and ready to go by 5 15 AM. Tomorrow looks like a go so come on down and get some
Hey guys! Non stop action today. That's the good news. Bad news is the keepers were hard to come by. We had a couple guys with four. That was the best we could do with the conditions ( just way too nice out). Jimmy "The Watchman" took the pool today with a 4.8 lb. Tog. We had a couple bigger but not in the pool. Snooze you lose! Tomorrow looks like a nice day. Light crowds so come on down and get some! We sail everyday from 7 30 AM to 3 30 PM. The guys have the boat lit up and ready to go by 5-5:15AM everyday!
Back at the small pieces today with a light crowd. Pulled some quality fish off each piece including the 6.8 and 7.7 pounders caught to top off this limit! Back at it again in the morning. Sailing everyday from 7:30am-3:30-4pm, COME GET SOME!
Our first drop of the morning we had a very scratchy bite with a few shorts, but nothing really great. Our 2nd drop we tried a little deeper, we did have life but we really couldn't get them going. At the next stop we managed to get a 9.4 blackfish and a few keepers. Again, we couldn't get a consistent bite so we decided to move. Our last drop of the day was best, where we managed to pull some quality keepers and shorts in the mix. Everyone seemed to go hom with keepers, high hook was about 4 and then there were some with 3 and so on. See you in the morning.
Heys guys went out with a light crowd of good regulars today abd fished a bunch of small pieces. Picked a few quality tog off each piece but really pulled it together at the end of the day. A few guys had limits+ other guys had 1-3. EVERYONE WENT HOME WITH MEAT. Like always it was a great day on the water with great people and great music. We sail everyday from 7:30am-3:30-4pm.
It was nice to see the Staten Island Fishing Club coming out with us today and some of our great regulars as always. Too bad the conditions today were not just a little bit better. We did manage to scrape up a few keepers on every spot with shorts in the mix, but i believe the large ground swell from the Southeast and the North tide did hurt the bite.I noticed throughout the day that some guys were using a jig had about 11 blackfish but only 1 or 2 being keepers. Tomorrow the wind is going to switch to the West which we will be looking for a better bit. See you in the morning, Captain Ron
Calm seas we had again today and the good news is that the fish were much more livlier than yesterday. We did do alot of moving and shifting and it seemed that most of the stops were about the same with bites. We did catch a load of shorts in the 14.5" range and every once in a while we would get a keeper scattered around the boat. We did get our first big shipment of white leggers that we will start to use tomorrow. Terry from Red Bank took the pool today with about a 6lb fish. We will see you in the morning, Captain Ron
Hey guys. It was nice to get back out on the ocean today after yet another miserable week of weather. We didn't have the best conditions today witch made for tough fishing. We did have a couple guys with limits,a couple with three and then there were a few guys who struck out. Bob from Langhorne,PA took the pool today with a nice 5lb. Blackfish. Tomorrow looks like a nice day so come on down and get some. We sail everyday from 7 30 AM to 3 30 PM.
Hey guys. First off the weather man is not good at his job( pic to follow). Second we had great blackfishing today! Limits all around the boat. We had guys throwing fish back by 10:30AM. No kidding! We fished to the North again today ( the usual places). I guess maybe the lack of boat traffic made the difference. Either way as usual it was a great day with great people and good times all around the boat! Devin pulled a slob Tog first thing this morning(9lbs. 14ozs) to set the pace and the guys all followed suit. Pete took the pool with a 7.2lber. we sail everyday from 7 30 AM to 3 30 PM. See you in the morning.
It was nice to see all our regulars today, what a great group of guys!!! Today was similar to what we had yesterday but with less Keepers. We did have an East swell with a South current which i believe affected the fishing today. We tried different depths and it seemed at times we did have bites all around the boat but they were mostly shorts. We did manage to get a keeper here and there throughout the day. Terry from Red Bank took the pool and had 2 other Keepers. I want to say "Way to go Vinny S" from Carteret as it was his first time Blackfishing. See you in the morning!
Today was a little chilly!!! The first stop we managed to get a few keepers and some shorts. What we noticed today was that the jig worked best for bites. For some reason it seems they were not too interested in crabs. Then we decided to take a little bit of a ride and we noticed the same as we had in the morning. Even in the afternoon the Blackfish were more active in the bites with the orange and green jigs. However, people did get bites with the crabs in the afternoon. Some guys had blackfish that were close to being keepers, but many throwbacks. It seemed today the activity was mostly shorts. See ya in the morning!!!
Well, we went out with a small crowd of great customers today. Fishing wasnt what it was yesterday, we had a tough bite most of the day. Even though they were not chewing like yesterday, eveyone on the boat caught fish and went home with some meat. Sailing everyday 7:30-4 come get some! Also doing a 7-2 trip on thanksgiving day!!!
Hey guys. We had a pretty good day today as the conditions continue to improve. First drop this morning was lock and load fishing with keepers all around the boat. We fished a couple different drops and caught keeper size Tog on all of them. Wayne Pinder took the pool today with a 7.6lb. Blackfish. Wayne also limited out by 9:30 and played catch and release the rest of the day. Joe and Bobby both hit there limits and most everyone went home with a couple. Good day all around. We sail everyday from 7 30 AM to 3 30 PM. The guys have the boat lit up and ready to go by 5-515 everyday! We look forward to seeing you all in the morning for some good times and good fishin'!
Beautiful day on the water, light winds and great people aboard. The cooperation of the fish was not there for us today. We tried different areas and different depths just to find the same thing. We did manage to catch a few Keepers on every spot. Roy Pierson had 3 Keepers and took the pool. Jimmy the Watchman came in 2nd with the next biggest fish and also had 3 Keepers. Some guys did manage to get a Keeper but it was mostly shorts. Weather looks great for tomorrow!!! See you in the morning.
Blackfish Season has officially started. Today on our first stop we did have a strong South current into a Northwest wind. However, we did get bites right from the start where we were catching shorts and in the mix KEEPERS! After a while we decided to try a little bit deeper, to find the same. We did have life, but it was sporadic throughout the day. Bill Buron had the hot stick today taking home the pool. Tomorrow looks like a great day, see you in the morning. We are sailing everyday !!!
Lots of fish, lots of bites. Nice day overall and everyone went home with fish. Come on down, tomorrow looks like a summer day! See you in the morning.

Good fishing today despite the fact that the ocean was angry ! Tomorrow looks to be a nicer day. Lots of quality Sea Bass and Porgie's! We sail everyday from 7 30 AM to 3:30 PM. Hope to see you soon!
Today we had a great group of people. We had non-stop action for Porgies right from the start and throughout the day. Some folks got their limits and some just short of ther limits. Plenty of action all day!!! Tomorrow is our last day for Porgies/Triggerfish. We will start Seabass on Monday which is opening day and that will be our target fish. See you in the morning, come on down for that last chance for Porgies to get you through the winter!!!
Porgie fishing was very good. In the mix we had some nice Blackfish as well. Looking forward to a very nice weekend and Seabass opens on Monday, 10/8. Come on down and get some!!! See you in the morniing!

We sail everyday from 7 30 AM to 2 30 PM. See you all on Wednesday morning! Come get some it's almost over.
Hey guys, another beautiful day on the water. Fishing wasn't quite what we like it to be, but tomorrows weather looks good we're going to pick a different direction so come down and give it a shot
Well it was nice to get back to fishing after a LONG week of crappy weather. There was still a little bit of a ground swell out there but it wasn't too bad. We managed to catch some nice keeper Fluke, a bunch of Sea Bass( that we can't keep), some blues and Bonita. Lots of action all day long, beautiful weather and great people. Jim took the pool today with a nice 5.9lb. Fluke. Great job Jim. Sonny needs to get his priorities straight. LOL. We sail everyday from 7 30 AM to 2 30 PM. The guys always have the boat lit up and ready to board by 5-515AM. Hope to see you in the morning! The weather looks great!
The morning was a little windy, but not too bad. Our drift was about .9 kts. We did manage from morning up to the afternoon to pick and pluck at some nice keepers. In the mix with the keepers were various shorts. One guy did manage to get his limit by noon others had 1 and 2 nice keepers and some had only throwbacks. As the day progressed, the NE wind increased which increased our drift. It was harder to feel the bites, therefore making it tough to catch fluke the rest of the day. Due to the NE wind that will be increasing, we are cancelling, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Watch the website under Important Updates as well will monitor and report. Hopefully the NE wind will diminish sooner.
The morning started just right, the fluke chewed right from the getko. We had keepers coming over the rail on our first drift. There were plenty of bites pretty well most of the day where the fluke cooperated biting both bait and buctails. We had guys on the boat with their limits by 9AM. The pool winner was Tom with a 7.5 lb. Everyone caught fish and everyone went home with keepers. Was a very good day overall. See you in the morning.
Big improvement in the fishing in the morning. Today we were lucky to have a drift about .5 knots most of the day. Some of our fisherman were lucky to get their limit at the end of the day. Some had to work extra hard to get a few keepers. We did have plenty of bites throughout the day and just missing some keepers by a few tenths of an inch. Lucky enough people dragging baits were lucky to catch a few too. The pool fish was in the 6lb range. See you in the morning.
What a gorgeous morning it is!!! As we approached our first stop and we set up for a drift we found out that there was no movement at all. We hardly moved 40 feet in 15 minutes. We decided to take a little bit of a boat ride and go wreck hopping. Around the wrecks there was life and we managed to get a few keepers on every wreck with shorts in the mix. Charlie was our pool winner with a 5lb fluke and 11 shorts that were close to being keepers. Today the buctailers did the best, but people using bait had a tough day. See you in the morning.
Hey guys, sorry for the late post, but we had a great day out on the water. We had guys with limits by 9:30 am! Ian was our pool winner today with a quality fluke. As usual, great times with great people and great music. Boat is always lit up by 5-5:15am! Come get some
Hey guys! Beautiful weather, great people, good music and tough fishing. That was our day. We caught some nice fish including Paul's pool fish weighing in at 7lbs. 9ozs..

Fluke to take the pool from Billy who had a 6lb. 4oz. Fluke. Lots of limits and some Sea Bass also. Today Max took home the pool with a 5lb. 6oz. Fluke.

We had a beautiful NW wind this morning with perfect drifting conditions. There was lots of life on the beach in the shallow to find a few keeps amongst lots of shorts. Once the NW wind diminished slightly we headed for deeper water finding keepers on mostly every stop today. In the mix we had a couple of nice shots of keeper seabass. It was nice to see guys with limits, some with 2 nice keepers and loads of throwbacks. It was a very nice day overall, see you in the morning!!!
