2009 Season

Hello to all! As 2009 begins (it's almost 25% gone allready!) we are all facing challenges that are new, difficult, and downright scary at times. I am sure we will weather this storm as we have weathered the storms before it. We have no choice.

Instead of the constant doom and gloom that we hear about day in and day out, it is our intention to use this blog to tell you the good stuff. Where the fish are, what is biting, what they are biting on, when they are biting, and who caught what.

We want you to brag about your catch, send us pictures, and make us all feel good for you.

As we get into the season, there will be real time fishing reports posted to this blog, so check often. They will be posted by the Captains themselves, or they will call from offshore and I will do a post immediately. This format will be more fluid and dynamic and as far as we are concerned, a whole lot more user freindly to the visitor.

There will be many new things going on this season and they will be posted as they are set. Please feel free to add your two cents worth concening us, Offshore Pursuits, or anything you feel like. Let's all make this year a great one. Just remember, nobody is going to do it for us...

    Offshore fishing at Hatteras has really been heating up. Scott on the Big Tahuna has been trolling bluefin early and then finishing up by drop jigging blackfins, tilefish, grouper and even makos. It's a pretty good time to get an early start on the season with a Hatteras charter.

    Scott runs a great boat and is very good at what he does. I went commercial bluefin fishing with him a couple of years ago. No fish, but not from lack of trying.

    As well as the economy I have another concern for 2009. The US has not caught it's NMFS bluefin tuna quota for years with our 73" minimum. As such ICCAT will probably attempt to transfer the underage to another country. One that has a 65" minimum. So any of the sacrifice to conserve by US fishermen will have been in vain.

    School stripers are being caught up and down the Rhode Island coastline. In reviewing Rutgers sea surface temperatures the warmer water is moving northeast into Nantucket Sound and should provide good action for keepers around Martha's Vineyard before Memorial Day.

    The striped bass and bluefish bite off Sankety Light at Nantucket has been unbelievable. The fish are all the way from top to bottom in 50' of water on the incoming tide. Jigs, lures and flies have all been productive.

    I plan to come to cape cod middle of September in a motor home to fish. What is running and where can I fish from shore?I used to live in New England but now am far away in upstate NY.

    The bass and bluefish should be around yet. You can fish from shore any number of places, depending where you are parking your motor home. If you can tell me where you are going to be at, i can get more specific. If you don't know yet, the best thing to do is ask any of the local tackle shops where the best place to go is. I assume you will need bait anyway. Dave
