Capt. Rob had another very good day of fishing. Despite not being to keep any cod or haddock. He has been able to zero in on the medium to large pollock as well as some big hake and cusk. Sundays photos below/
The Yankee Clipper headed out for an all day trip 7am-5pm with Captain Rob. The trip was great!! We had quite a few big hake, and a mix of Pollock, cusk and redfish.
Our half day trips also had a good turn out and you couldn’t beat the summer weather!
Sunday, 9/28 we head out again 7am-5pm on the Yankee Clipper. Space is available and the office will open at 5:30am!
Capt. John reported a good pollock bite out at Cashes. Plenty of medium to large fish. A good time was had by all.
Yankee Fleet will continue to fish well into the fall as usual. We will be targeting Pollock, cusk, hake and red fish. Haddock season will reopen November 1st.

Captain Rob has worked hard and done his do diligence in honing in on the Pollock. He reports he is confident in the success this fall. His deep water trips also will continue with high expectations.
Capt John has done an excellent job on the Offshore trips to Cashes. The decision to go to Cashes has been nice with almost exacting results for the different species.
The NEW really distant trip to Georges Bank is getting more and more exciting (check out overnight fishing on the website www.yankeefleet.com). These trips allow us to get out of the Gulf of Maine regulations, with a size of 22 inches and no bag limit. We continue to talk to fishermen that have been there, getting intel and suggestions. The anticipation, and expectations are high. We are getting the boat ready and an added bonus of having a commercial grade vacuum package machine available to help keep what you catch longer and fresher.
Yankee Fleet believes strongly in the conservation of our fish and the waters they live. We also believe in the rights of individuals. It is unfortunate how the process of getting to a sustainable fisheries has been fooled by all the smokes and mirrors, and allowing it to come to this. We will continue to do our part.
