JUNE 10 2018

Sunday morning was a bit damp and chilly, but we sailed at 7am with Drago Dentche of Norwalk, his son, Ryan, and Ryan’s friends Matt Hidy and Sean Lee of Stamford.  They caught 25 fish including sea bass (kept four,) a few porgies and one short fluke.

We fished early today with Hout Ly of Darien and his brother Tony, a Boston resident, and their dad, Seng Ly from Portsmouth,  New Hampshire.

The conditions were perfect, and everyone caught sea bass, porgies, striped bass, and bluefish–many keepers among them.

Our boat sat at the marina several days because of poor weather, but we got out this morning with Jerry Hunt of Norwalk and four of his fishing buddies–John, Paulie, Dave, and Randy–all  CT residents.  They brought in large sea bass, fluke, porgies and a ton of sea robins.  Most of the fish were filleted and taken home for dinner.

APRIL 4 2018 – GRAND FINALE FOR FLORIDA FISH’N.

Our final trip of the FL season was today, April 4, with the Conte family of Palm Bay—James and Stacey, and their 16-year-old son, Zack.  They enjoyed a pleasant trip, catching sail cats, crevalle jacks, and a Spanish mackerel.

We’ll be pulling the boat in two days and heading north at the end of the month.  Our L.I. Sound charters will begin sometime in May.

MARCH 30 2018

We went out on Friday morning with Chris Lensch of Traverse City, Michigan, and his 16-year-old son, Olan.  They brought in crevalle jacks and a couple of sail catfish.  They also had a surprise view of a fast-climbing rocket launched from the Kennedy Space Center as it moved higher and higher over the Treasure Coast.

MARCH 15 2018

It’s been some time since we went fishing, but we were able to relaunch our FL boat (again!) last week after two more weeks of maintenance and upgrades–and too many cold and/or windy days for fishing.  We went out today with local buddy, Jack Balme, and we stayed within the confines of the San Sebastian River–catching catfish, ladyfish and pompano.  Jack’s showing off some of our catch below….

We plan to keep the boat in the water until the middle of April, leaving FL and returning to CT on April 28.  Our northern boat will be launched in early May.

DECEMBER 28 2017

Still having some issues with our Florida boat; pulled it out of the river yesterday, and it won’t be launched again for another week or so, depending on length of time repairs will require.  Please watch this page for updates.  Sorry for any inconvenience to our charter clients, but salt water craft can be very fickle….   Allow me to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe year in 2018–a year filled with only good surprises and good people in your lives.

 

CHRISTMAS DAY 2017

                             CHRISTMAS GREETINGS TO ALL, AND BEST WISHES FOR A GREAT NEW YEAR!

While the weather here is quite good, the fishing is a bit slow, and right now we’re dealing with some mechanical problems and will be pulling My Bonnie out of the water for a major overhaul.  We’ll let everyone know when we’re back on the water.
