Sheepshead Bay Party Boat Blackfishing

hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows if the Ocean Eagle is still going out at all. last sat i went out to find only one boat going for blackfish(not the OE) and i had a pretty lousy time. no live crabs in all of sheepshead bay, too, word is there is a "crab shortage". the conditions were as nice as they get, im not sure any swells were over 1' all day, and the water was smoking as far as the eye could see, so why would they not have gone?
i know a lot of boats pack up for the winter, and i heard a rumor that this winter (because we're expecting a cold one) the entire fleet will shut down by feb. any truth to this? anyone know what the Ocean Eagle's plans for winter are or how i can find out if they are going out sunday?

The reason for a lack of boats sailing is generally the result of a lack of customers. Some party boats will sail into a gale storm without any bait if there is a crowd at the dock screaming to be taken out.
