    COD trip 8/10-8/11

         Our first Cod trip outside the Gulf Of Maine (GOM) in 2017 was a huge success. We ended up with a very nice overall catch 65% Cod and 35% mix of Haddock and Pollock. This obviously is a win win, and set a nice precedent for more trips. We are now making the change to our last two overnight trips in August, the 24th and the 31st, and will fish outside the GOM (south of 42 degrees latitude), instead of going to Cashes or Fippennies.
         We will also be adding trips outside the GOM after the closures of haddock on September 17th. These dates will be posted on our website after the August 24th trip.
    We look forward to fishing with everyone and appreciate your patronage. Here are some customer photos from the August 10th trip.
     
     
    Thanks Capt Tom O.

    Overnight trip 8/3-8/4

    Captain Matt has done it again!  Landed not just one, but TWO halibut on last weeks overnight trip, one of course went back.  A mix of haddock and Pollock made up the other 700 fish they took home.

    James Katsaros was the lucky one with the 56″, 91 lb. keeper halibut this time!

    Call to book for your chance at a halibut!

    “Today was magical.  Everybody tended their lines carefully and followed our instructions.  Many limited out (on haddock) plus had some Pollock and cusk.” -Capt. Rob

    Limited Capacity Tuesday trip 8/1

    Beautiful day to be on the water yesterday and great action for Captain Rob on the Clipper!

    Overnight trip 7/27-7/28

    The Freedom is almost home from their overnight trip and Captain Matt absolutely killed it!! Two halibut within 20 minutes of each other (2nd went back).  Keeper halibut was caught by Carl Ashcraft measuring 63 inches and weighing in 104 lbs.  About 700 fish caught consisting of an even mix of Pollock and haddock.  Great job Matt and crew!

    *Stay tuned for big schedule changes and ADDED Overnight trips*
