JULY 23 2017

Sunday’s weather  was cloudy and breezy, but our passengers, new Rowaytonites, Ziad and Laura Mantoura and their four-year-old son, Jack–and Jack’s grandpa Andrew Hodson, visiting from Great Britain–enjoyed bringing in short fluke, porgies, lots of sea robins, and a surprise to everyone–a 23″ weakfish, a first time for the family.

JULY 22 2017

Saturday was very hot, but dry.  We left the dock at 8am with  Aget Dauletbaev, Arseniy Kukanov, Yuriy Pronin, Eugene Koblik  of Greenwich CT, and Nikolay Archak of Jersey City, NJ

They kept busy bringing in bluefish and porgies, most of which were filleted and taken home for a big barbecue dinner.

 

JULY 19 2017

We went out Wednesday morning with John Singer and Paul Susko of Fairfield, along with Randy DeMaio and Dave O’Hare of Stamford, and Jerry Hunt of Norwalk. Temps were high, and winds were low, and they caught bluefish up to ten pounds., large sand sharks, and–of course–sea robins.  Most of the fish came in on top-water plugs.

 

JULY 8 2017

Saturday’s weather was perfect, and we left the dock at 7:30 with Somers NY residents, Norman Tengstrom II, his son Marc, and Dan McKernan and his son, Landon. They caught porgies up to 15″, keeper sea bass up to four pounds, some short fluke, one bluefish that broke off at the boat, one sand shark and too many sea robins to count.  Here’s Norman with a nice sea bass.

JULY 3 2017

On Monday we sailed with Jerry Giordano of Fishkill and his son,  Jeremy, who lives in Albany–and their friend, Paul Colona of Pound Ridge NY.  They had a wonderful day catching fluke, porgies and some short sea bass.

As a bonus, Paul remembered that, when he was a youngster, he took guitar lessons from me at the Eastchester Music Center. (Yes, I’ve been a musician most of my life.)   He and Jerry jam together, and Jerry makes  guitars, as well!  ‘Tis a small world, after all.

 

THE FOURTH OF JULY 2017 – GOD BLESS AMERICA!

 

 

We had a double header on July 4, with good weather throughout the day.

The morning trip was with a mixed six-pack of fishermen: John Moon of NYC, and his sons, Steve and David, as well as their friends–Samantha and Parker Scott–twins from Greenwich, along with Matt K.  They caught lots of porgies up to 17″,  as well as some sea bass and  fluke, but the most exciting part of the catch was a 25″ sand shark, always a novelty for our clients.


 

In the afternoon we had Stamford residents, Ricarde Gabriel and his stepson, Kevin.  Their catch included keeper fluke, porgies, sea bass, one sand shark and the omnipresent sea robins. 

JULY 1 2017

We went out very early Saturday morning with Steve and Marianne Danilak, residents of the Bronx NY, and family members from Westport CT,  Brian and AnnMarie Appel and their beautiful little girl, Riley.

Everyone had a wonderful time reeling in a 7.5 lb. fluke, as well as porgies and sea bass.  Many fillets will be on the grill for the family’s July 4 celebration.

 

 

The afternoon trip was with Rick Litt of Stamford, along with his son, Kevin, who resides in New Haven.  They had non-stop action reeling in fluke, porgies, and plenty of sea robins.

 

JUNE 25 2017

Sunday’s weather started out perfectly, and we left the dock at 10am with Rick Fay and his son, Sean, along with Ted Norelius–all from upstate New York.  They brought in some bluefish, one short fluke, and lots of sea robins.

 

JUNE 18 2017 – FATHERS’ DAY!

The morning was a foggy one, but within an hour of leaving our marina, the sun came out, and the weather was beautiful for Father’s Day.

Our passengers were four young folks from Colorado,  Shane Rodenberg and his daughter, Bonnie Brown, plus Alex Velasquez and Lana Quintero.  They caught fluke, sea bass, porgies, some blues, and a sand shark.  Everyone had a great time.
