Pretty good fishing the last couple of days, much better keeper ratio on the haddocks and more cod starting to come aboard.
Hey Guys, Want to start the season by saying that in no way shape or form, should fish reports be used in consideration of booking a trip. You can’t catch yesterday’s fish today, and tomorrow could be better or worse, you just never know at the end of the day when your using a hook and line, it’s all up to the fish. That being said, the keeper ratio was a bit better today than yesterday, with the majority of the catch being haddock.
A few days late but we finally made it out. Weather wasn’t great today, although it was nice enough to get off the dock. Nothing epic to report yet about the fishing, you can catch a haddock every drop, but the ratio of shorts to keepers is about 10-1. About a dozen keeper cod.
Availability for April:
April 22nd (all day 7:00am-3:30pm) plenty of room

**I have made Easter Sunday April 20th a marathon if anyone is interested.
Next time we’re heading in on a flat sunny day in July, and one of you knuckle heads say, “Wow Cap, you have the life of Riley” someone is getting keel hauled. Glassing over the whole deck and rub rails. Found some wet plywood in the bow around the deck hatch, and before I knew it I had the entire bow ripped apart. Not sure but there is talk of new regs issued, so book a few trips in April just incase they are not in our favor. New regs would take place May 1st if any are issued.
Talk soon, Cap
Thanks for the calls, Becky said we may have to add a couple marathons already, really…like we don’t do enough, Ill just sleep on the boat in May and June. Huh, maybe that was her plan all along. Got another bridge job with the Brotherhood, the I95 bridge that crosses the Merrimack is in dire straits. Four year job. Don’t tell them I’ll be leaving in March. Hey at least I’m still around water. As far as I know, the regs will be the same as last year, but if anything changes I’ll let you know. Good to talk to a lot of you over the holidays, can’t wait to get back at it.
Happy New Year!!
The schedule for the 2014 season is now posted! Call the office to reserve your dates (603) 929-1995
Yes we’re still alive. Thank you to everyone for your calls and emails. I’ve benn working on the bird’s deck the last few weeks, grinding paint and repairing fiberglass, lots of cosmetic stuff. Becky has a pretty good handle on next seasons schedule, just tweaking a few marathons so as they don’t interfere with some of the charters. We will have it posted shortly after the new year. We wish you as much joy as you can possibly stand for the holidays.
