APRIL 20 2018

We’ll be heading back to Connecticut next week, hoping to launch our boat the week after that, and starting our charters on May 12.  It was great to escape the very cold and wet winter in the northeast, but we’re looking forward to working L.I. Sound after five months on the San Sebastian and Indian Rivers–a totally different fishing experience.

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.

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.

JANUARY 25 2018

Our Florida boat has had its makeover, and we went out yesterday, fishing only in the San Sebastian River –avoiding the Indian River Lagoon because of high winds.  We got a sampler of redfish, snook, trout, and tarpon. ..

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.

DECEMBER 1 2017

Well, we launched our FL boat a week ago, but we’re dealing with some maintenance issues and are awaiting some parts for our engine tilt system.  As soon as we’re up and running again, we’ll let everyone know about what’s happening in our local Florida waters.

NOVEMBER 18 2017

We’ve been in Florida for a three weeks, and we’ll be launching our southern boat tomorrow morning.  Within a week or so we should be posting our first report from the San Sebastian and Indian Rivers, and we’re very optimistic, based on reports from fellow anglers who’ve been prowling the local waters since October.
