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 for December!
