Well hello there everyone! This is our first email of the year. Hope you all survived the hard winter Ok. We are very excited to begin the 2005 season. Times flies. Seems like yesterday that we were catching blackfish on the final cold days of November.
But here we are ready for what hopefully will be another great season. Myself and our crew have worked very hard for the past two months getting the boat spruced up. Just finished the final touches this week and we are ready to go!
The water has warmed up quickly the last few weeks. As we brought the boat home from the Greenport shipyard on Sunday, the surface temp was up to as much as 47 degrees in certain parts of the sound which is around the temperature that the blackfish start to stir. A few of the local lobstermen have started seeing blackfish in their pots this week which is a positive sign. Looks like we should be right on time with our seasons first trip this Saturday April 23.
We will be sailing everyday at 7 am for blackfish for the next 2-3 weeks. Once the fluke show up we will switch over, most likely sometime around mid May. Just give a call if you would like to join us. We really look forward to seeing you all again. Hope you are all doing well. Lets go catch some fish!!
