Capt. Rick had a 4 hour, 3 person trip today for Miss Judy Charters.
We departed her dock at almost 10am. Water temp was 55°and muddy at
most places due to the New moon. Tides and currents run much faster during
a full and new moon. They missed quite a few bites, but did keep 3 fish
for a meal. They also released a few bluefish and several speckled seatrout
that were too short. Emily caught the 3 fish they decided to keep 1 redfish
and 2 seatrout. Not bad for the last day of the year at mostly low tide
on a new moon.
Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour inshore trip today with Peter and his
family, which included his wife, and 3 children. The weather today was
much like yesterday except a tad warmer. Todays trip was about exposing
their children to saltwater inshore fishing. They probably would enjoy
a summer trip better, but Capt. Jeremy said they minded very well and
caught a few fish. All fish today were Speckled seatrout and redfish.
Capt. Jeremy indicated that they had a good day despite the adverse climate.
Capt. Rick had a 6 hour inshore trip today with Brian and his
Father and also William and his Father. The air temp was 49 when we departed
at 8am, but the water temp was 55 and clear as a bell. We did have to
contend with a brisk north east wind, but was able to find many trout
drops that was out of the direct wind. Fishing was slow to start, but
we did get onto a drop that held some trout. I love to fish a popping
cork, but these fish were a bit deeper and most were caught on the older
adjustable float-on type cork. We released all fish, which were only seatrout
and bluefish today. Everyone on the boat caught fish, with Bryan and his
Dad leading the group with 6 and 7 each. Everyone on the boat was very
experienced and excellent anglers. I have had Brian and William earlier
in the summer.
Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour inshore trip today with David and his
family. Capt. Jeremy reported that the bite had slowed somewhat, but that
kept a few speckled seatrout and 1 slot sized redfish. Water was clear.
Air temp approached 80° but the water temp has fallen to 55°.
Tomorrow is the first official day of winter and air temp is expected
to hit the lower 80's. Even though the bite was slow today, it should
pick up later next week if this weather pattern continues.
Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour inshore trip today with 5 people. He
had Andy and his group from Alpharetta, Ga and some from New York. The
air temp reached the mid 70's and the water temp was in the low 60's.
Water clarity was very good. All fish were caught on Midcoast Products
Popping corks and live shrimp from Adams. They kept 17 speckled seatrout,
2 redfish, 2 whiting and 1 flounder. Capt. Jeremy reported that they were
very good anglers and for the majority of the day only 4 fished at the
time. Since the wind was not an issue today, they were able to have 5
lines in the water without tangling. Capt. Jeremy reported that they also
caught and released quite a few short trout as well.
Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour inshore trip today with Allen, his son
Jamie and daughter Allie. Water temp was 60 and clear. It was hit and
miss at most locations but they did find some speckled seatrout and a
nice sheepshead. Capt. Jeremy reported that they were very good anglers
and didn't miss too many bites. Air temp was almost 80 today, not bad
