Spring 2012

This was one of the most productive springs that we had ever witnessed... We found loads of mackerel, schools of pogies and lots of Stripers. Most of our fishing was done off Race Point, where we butterflied up dozens of bass each trip. Before the "Race Bite" was on we had done some fishing around Billingsgate and along the backside of Nantucket. Early in June we fished Buzzards for limits of beautiful Giant Seabass (3-4#). Our most memorable trip this season, was with the boys from D&G Bait and Tackle. On a tip from a friend (Tyler), we found a huge school of Stripers inside CC Bay - pushing bait on the surface... Dave and crew threw my pencil poppers and caught around 50 Bass from 18-28#'s. I think they could have caught more, but by 10:45am - their arms were sore.....    On the Lake Ontario side - The mild winter kept schools of bait around the eastern end of Lake"O".  In turn, most all of the charters had limit catches by 11am. Limits are not unusual in the early spring, but with a excellent mixture of Kings mixed in, was a welcoming bonus. This past week we boated dozens of Salmon, and caught Steelies up to 13#. Not bad for the "dog days" of July!  We still have some prime weekend days open for charters, but they are evaporating quickly. Give us a call for availability, and wish us luck in the Monster Shark Tournament!   <'/////><
