Fishing Reports June 2007
June 13, 2007 - Wow have we been busy. Tough to keep up with fishing reports. We have been running one striped bass trip after another the past few couple of weeks. Striper fishing has ranged from good to very good. Several keepers every trip. Many schoolies mixed in. Very consistent and a lot of fun! Today we caught our first bluefish of the season as well as a bunch of striper. The following pictures are just a few from some of our most recent trips. We are starting to see some very large stripers "out front" now. They are just showing up from offshore. Striper fishing is off to a strong start. We have not taken any cod and haddock trips the past few weeks. It's that time of year when we will head up north to areas that are permanently closed to commercial fishing. We have not had a chance to target bluefin tuna as yet this year. Tuna are here, and we're also dying to get offshore and catch some tuna. The following pictures are just a few from some of our most recent striper trips.
June 16, 2007 - Today we had a bachelor party for my mate Rick's future brother-in-law. Once again we were chunking for stripers and bluefish. Striper fishing continues to be very good. We caught the keepers pictured below on a 4 hour trip this afternoon.
June 17, 2007 - What better gift to dad than a striped bass fishing trip on than Father's Day! We had two half day striper trips today. The fishing which has been so good the past several trips was a little slow today. We did bring many schoolies less than keeper size to the boat. All day long the hook baits would get a bite, only to have the bait stolen or ripped up. Most likely little stripers. At the end of the day we did get on some decent sized stripers that were biting well. I know where we'll start off next trip....
June 20, 2007 - It's been three days since our last trip. We've been running one striper trip after another. Today we had yet another 4 hour charter targeting striped bass. Our father's day trips had been a little slow. Today we were back on top of the fish big time. Our party today were beginners at the start of the day. Admittedly it's frustrating watching what are obviously big fish get away due to angler inexperience. The gratifying part is when people grasp the concept of how we fish, and they start to land some fish. Four hours is not a lot of time to gain experience. The fishing today was very good, and our party got the concept of how to angle fish in time to boat several good sized stripers, and finally a couple fish in the 36 inch range - and fat at that. In the end, we got some fish, and everyone had a great time.
June 23, 2007 - We have done nothing but fish for striped bass this entire month. I can't ever recall a month when all we did was fish for striper. Luckily every trip but one has been a roaring success. Mate Mike D, Mate Mike M and myself were in class finishing up our Masters Captain License course today. All three of us passed the course, and are qualified for our 100 Ton Masters License. Mate Rick D, who already has his 100 ton license, ran the trip today. He had the pleasure of having a group of two couples. From what Rick told me, they were the nicest, most gracious group you could hope to have on board. The fishing - nothing but schoolies in the morning. Rick made a move in the afternoon, and got on a PILE of big striper. All in all - I was stuck in a classroom, and Ricky D was with a great bunch of people catching big fish. To tell you the truth - I couldn't be more pleased. It's always rewarding when it's a successful day whether I'm there or not.
June 24, 2007 - We took today off for scheduled maintenance on the Sandy B. Of course when we were finished we had to go out and fish for an hour before heading home. We headed to where Rick had so much fun yesterday. The stripers were still there. What a howl. We were sight fishing. Feeding the bait right to the stripers. Awesome.
June 29 - July 1, 2007 - Striper trip, cod trip then striper trip the past three days. Our first cod trip the entire month. Three days of fun! Catching fish no matter the target species. Lots of striped bass, plenty of cod and haddock. This summer is shaping up to be another memorable and productive time for fishing. This Friday we'll finally get a chance to target bluefin tuna. Tuna are being trolled up on a regular basis this summer. We'll be thrilled to have a day to target giants next week. Stay tuned!
