Rockfishing got a little spotty for a few days but it is back on fire! Live lining continues to be fast and furious. Catching bait has been the biggest challenge and a lot of guys have resorted to buying them. There is still a lot of wood and debris in the water so we all have to be careful out there. I still have October and November dates available. Contact me to book.
This week was a bit different from how it has been. The hurricane and following rain storms have caused the Bay to become brown with sediment and littered with logs, trees, debris, etc. Conditions and fishing were tough overall. A few boats caught some Rockfish live-lining, but had to resort to buying the live Spot. (The local Spot fishing is about done.) The Hurrah caught some rockfish, bluefish and spanish mackerel over the weekend, but it wasn’t fast and furious. The bite will likely pick up again soon!
The waters are murky and full of debris, but the fishing is still very good! Rockfishing was productive this weekend for live-liners who found enough Spot. Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel bit well on the troll.
Cooler weather and breaking Rockfish are right around the corner. Contact me a.s.a.p. to book a fall date! Late October through Dec. 15th is usually awesome!
Well, an earthquake, tornados, and a hurricane all in the same week was pretty nuts and cost us some trips. It was worthwhile hauling the boat for a few days though. It gave me a chance to replace some zincs and touch-up some bottom paint.
This week provided us with better weather and great fishing! The live-lining is still red hot and we crushed the rockfish as recently as yesterday. The hardest part was catching enough live bait. The Spot-fishing is becoming more challenging but the Rockfish remain cooperative. Soon we will switch over to trolling and jigging exclusively. There were some more Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel caught this week as well.
Now is the time to book your FALL FISHING TRIP aboard The Last Hurrah. October through mid-December can provide some of the best fising of the year with acres of resident rockfish breaking on the surface and monster ocean-run fish migrating back up the Bay. Call or email soon before the calendar is full!!
