Blackfishing has been very good the last two days since things have settled down from the hard winds from a few days ago.

Sunday, the bite was definitely off after the blow. The fish were very picky, though 15 anglers did manage 45-50 keepers for the day with a few fish 7-8 lbs.

Monday saw a steady bite most of the day as 22 anglers caught close to their limit of blackfish to 9 lbs.

Tuesday was also very good as 18 anglers had over 150 keepers with several big fish over 8 lbs.

We did not sail today due to the weather but hopefully we will be out again soon as the conditions improve.

Hi Desi - its Leprechaun. I've been thinking hard about all that I saw on the Monday trip and first off I have to say never have I seen a single-screw boat run more efficiently than yours. Excellent work getting us right on those pieces, no easy task in that boat, I know because I also run a single-screw inboard. Your crew is excellent and very attentive to the customers - ALWAYS right there to help with anything at all. Also - the bottom you fish on is very different than anything we have here on the western South Shore. It feels like hard tiny little pieces surrounded by silt. Bounce the sinker around in the silt till you find a hard piece and let the bait rest on it and bingo, a fish. Leave the bait 6" off the hard stuff right next to it and not a nibble. I found that fascinating, 6-12" making a difference. If I didn't own my own rig, I'd fish with you every weekend, and that's no small compliment coming from me. Good Luck to you for the rest of the season. rgds -
