December 8, 2018

Today’s weather forecast was WRONG!! NW 10-15...I think not. It blew a straight 20-25 all morning. Crappy conditions but tried to ride it out. Took a wave over the bow while on the hook and that was it. Called it a short trip. Really disappointing. Been looking forward to this trip with Firas since we were blown out last month. Not the last trip we hoped for. Had a few togs and a small cod before wrapping it up. Until next year, I guess. Hoping we make it west tonight...

Who’s afraid of a little cold! The boys loaded up with togs and cod today. Hope to get them back out next year!

An excellent day of fishing for Tim and the boys, all first-timers with NRC. After steaming more than 20 miles, we dropped the hook and were into fish all day long.  The guys boxed almost 60 sea bass and a handful of cod. We also had fun catching mackerel throughout the day. Even hooked a whiting. Also had a whale swim by and a few seals make an appearance. Quite the marine adventure! Looking forward to another trip next summer.

We sailed open boat today and had the pleasure of fishing with Paul “Nice Guy” Galeno as well as a few NRC first-timers looking to get in on the bottom fishing action. The day proved to be a little challenging, as the fish seemed to have lock jaw. We put together a decent catch of sea bass and cod, but hope for some more consistent action tomorrow. Managed a quick shot of Peter showing off one of the cod boated by the gang.

NRC first-timer Jonathan Perkins and his crew fished a full day wish us and the long run to the fishing grounds was well worth it. The guys landed their limit of three dozen togs, along with a couple of cod. Great day on the water and we’re looking forward to doing it with them again next season.

Juliette took Jeff and the boys to school today! We ran about 20 miles for some offshore sea bass fishing where the crew loaded the boat with their limit of fish. Then headed back inshore for a quick blackfish bite and filled a basket with another dozen or togs. The cold weather has moved in, but the fish are still chewing. We're enjoying these last few trips, as our season will be wrapping up in a few weeks.

The wind was relentless ALL DAY LONG. Wet ride across, going and coming. Not a slaughter, but pretty good fishing, with some impressive fish in the mix. Glad to have gotten the trip in.

After being tied up for a few days due to the continuing wind, it was great getting the off the dock today with Nick and the boys. We made a steam to get to the fishing grounds, where it paid off nicely with a limit of blackfish. Even found a striped bass swimming with the togs. A perfectly beautiful fall day of fishing!
