JULY 15 2018

Although the weather reports were less than ideal, we sailed with Myles Wolfe and his young family at 10am.  The thunder storm never arrived, and although it was a bit windy and cool, the family brought in a passel of porgies and took home lots of fish for a family barbecue.

Today’s results were better than we’d seen for the past several trips. We sailed in the morning with Chris Skoczen of Fairfield CT and his sons, Luke and Ben.  They caught a mess of porgies, two fluke,  and sea robins.  All the fish were released.

JULY 11 2018

We’ve been out a few times since our last report. The weather’s been fairly good, but the fishing is fair to middlin’. Some porgies and sea bass, the occasional keeper fluke, schoolie striper, and the always-reliable sea robins.

Happy Birthday, America!  We love you.

It’s the 4th of July and very hot and muggy, as one might expect.

We went out at 8am with Tom Gardiner and his guests from upstate New York.  There was no wind at all, and everyone was a bit uncomfortable–even close to sea sick–but they brought in porgies, fluke, sea robins–all in all 50 fish, keeping 20 for their July 4th celebration barbecue.



JULY 2 2018

We had a very hot and very slow day on Sunday, but our passengers caught fluke, sea bass, porgies and sea robins.

Today we had aboard Gary Mergian and his son, Alex, residents of New Canaan.  They had a great morning catching fluke and porgies, along with sea robins.

We sailed today 7:30am, and it was a disappointing start.  But we moved to the middle of the Sound where our Darien clients, Ted Rykowski, Kevin Buckley, Zeke Adkens and Chris (surname unknown) brought in bluefish up to 12 pounds, as well as porgies and lots of sea robins.

The fish are still quite fickle for time of the year. 

Yesterday’s weather and tides were favorable when we left the dock at 7:30am.  Aboard My Bonnie  were Pound Ridge NY residents, Robert Lichtenberger Jr. and his sons, Robert III, and Matthew–as well as his dad, Robert Lichtenberger I, visiting from Arizona.  Everyone caught porgies, as well as short sea bass and fluke.

JUNE 16 2018

Today’s trip was a bit disappointing.  Although the weather was cooperative, all we managed to catch were half a dozen sea bass, five fluke–all shorts–and a few porgies and sea robins.  No rhyme nor reason as to why the fish disappear one day and return the next.  Maybe tomorrow’s trip will be more productive….

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.
