Guy yesterday was saying to me yesterday, fluke fishing is tough this year ain’t it?
I said “Yeah, it’s wearing me out.”
Saturday, September 14, 2019…
mixed bag action with fluke still the highlight on the Island Princess half day trips out of Captree State Park, with good numbers also of small sea bass, perfect eating sized blowfish, lots of sea robins, a few kingfish, as well as some Triggerfish here and there
Gulp baits are working best, but so is traditional squid and spearing bait combinations, a strip of white fluke belly might produce a big whole one for you.
Both Captain Bryan and Captain Jimmy are going wherever the fish are but lately, one sure stop on each trip has been the pocket of the sore thumb off Oak Beach, gulp baits definitely your best and they have them on board for sale, other baits are free as are boat Rod and reel…
The Island Princess sales at 7 a.m. noon and 6 p.m. the Night Trips were for Bluefish and the day trips are primarily fluke sometimes the Blowfish show up in good numbers it depends on the day. Because of the weather and time of year you might want to call ahead 631-587-6024 you can make a reservation you can buy your tickets online at islandprincessCaptree.Com
they say that time fishing is not taking off your life, so we wish you a phenomenal summer season for 2019, you must be so thrilled to be finally ready for Kindergarten?
Happy 75th Birthday… Pierre (Pete) Mercier, known by so many for his days when he and his wife Bonnie ran Captree Bait and Tackle, truly a family business in the finest spirit… “Pete, they say that time fishing is not taking off your life, so we wish you a phenomenal summer season for 2019, you must be so thrilled to be finally ready for Kindergarten? Miss talking to you every week for your insightful fishing reports back in the day when I had the radio show and wrote for Nor’east… Best to you and Bonnie… I see you’re also still horsing around?”
Bill Purkins, the kids & grandkids,
Captree, Island Princess noon trip fluking slow, switched to light tackle & jigs inside east of the lighthouse, nice pick of cocktail sized blues on a sunny day in general, came home with a hefty bag of fillets… great day…
I fished on the Captree Island Princess May 22, 2018 noon to 4:30 trip… fluking was slow so Captain Jimmy switched over to light tackle and a small crowd fished small jigs and bass assassins for a nice pick of cocktail sized blues in sunny conditions for a fun afternoon. Night trips 6 to 10 pm with the bluefish have been outstanding, again, small shiny stuff and light tackle, looks great for the Memorial Day Weekend.
Angler Walter West licked this 7 pound northern stargazer on light tackle, then shocked onlookers as he gave it a lick for good luck before releasing it.
Codfishing, weather permitting, was steady all Winter and early Spring out of Captree and party boats are still after them… Still time to get in on a great bite…
MAY CODFISHING OUT OF CAPTREE!
