The weather was perfect in the 80′s with a warm west wind we set out for a half day of bass fishing yesterday with a Father son combo. We planned on throwing the hook and chunking for the fish. This plan quickly changed when we saw hundreds of birds feeding on fish. We put out the troll baits and within a minute all the rods had fish. Our guests were busy reeling lots of fun fish in the 28″ range.
The bass were very aggressive hitting big shads in every color. There is a ton of bait around so the fishing should only get better as we approach the second half of our summer. With some of the best fishing in years we look forward to great fishing for several months ahead.
We had a very special trip this past week with great friends. Patrick, who has spent many years working on Reel Pursuit was aboard with Aaron, Kerry, and Shane. Aaron and Kerry are the son and daughter of the late Jim Dignan. If you knew Jim he was a great friend to all of us. He had a great sense of humor and always made you feel like his best friend. He is missed everyday.
With many laughs and stories the fishing was excellent. We were able to chunk for the bass in great weather in the harbor. Captain Paul tried his luck and managed a nice 42″ bass. With the pressure on, Shane had the hot reel and decided to match the Captain and landed another 42″ bass. Just an all around great trip with some of the nicest people you will meet.
We had some great bass fishing on the troll over the past weekend. We found feeding fish throughout the outer harbor. The fish were very aggressive and feeding on 4-7″ herring. The ride to the fishing grounds lately has been full of exciting boats and activity. Tons of bait around, lets hope the fishing stays hot.
First Mate Scott and I wanted to take the boat out for a ride to make sure all systems were in good working order. It’s one thing to make sure all systems are in working order while at the dock, but you need to take the boat out and run it thru it’s paces under load and ensure that your customers have the best experience possible. So we took a trip to see what we may catch.
We left the dock under light rain and no wind out to the BG bouy in Boston Harbor. First Mate Scott went Down to the engine room and crawled around to make sure there were no leaks from the running gear and all the equipment checked out ‘A OK’. Now that we had checked that all the mechanicals on the boat were in good working order, we decided we should see how the fishing was. We were skeptical because on the way out of the harbor we didn’t see any signs of life. On the way back in, however, between Deer Island and the airport Scott noticed some birds working over what may have been a school of fish, so we decided to troll leadheads and shads. WOW – what a great idea, we caught 10 fish between 24″ to 34.5″. It looks like 2010 is off to a great start. It’s going to be a great season, you’ll probably want to book your trip soon, slots are filling up. See you on the water!
