6/9/12 : Tuna / Sea bass / Cod
Had Capt. Brenda, Capt.Eddie, Joe And Mike out for some fun fishing. , We thought an offshore run might be more fun and a change of pace for entire crew. Capt Mark left the dock early  morning and headed to some water that looked good on the charts. Got there had good water clarity and temps, some boats had already landed bluefin. Put in the lines and had Brenda up for his first Tuna that bet her up 20 pounds fish hit the deck a few more Blue Fin were caught and released. The lines were knocked down by 12lb falsies and15 to add to the fun  .Decided to hit a local wreck so the crew could try something differed landed 13 nice cod, and dozen ling and 25 Sea Bass  to add to the catch. Good times with a great crew.

6-10-2012 : Shark / Blue Fin Trip

Had Joe, Dylan and Bobby 20 miles off shore. Plan was to go offshore Troll for Blue Fin and Chum for shark. This morning I decided to go back to the place where I caught the Blue Fin, my buddy was crushing them when I left the dock so I decided to try that first. First Troll had a knock down. Next time around hooked one about 30 pounds .Went 10 for 14 on the Troll. Changed gears and went sharking, in the first hour we had 5 bites and landed 3 with the whole charter doing battle, 1 Mako about 170 did a couple of flips in the air then broke us off. We Blue harks to 8 feet but lots of fun. Great weather, crew and music made for an enjoyable day!

Tom Walsh Bass / Bluefish Charter. We broke the inlet at 7:00 am and started working the birds. We were jiggingfor bluefish/Bass at a drop and reel pace working our way North towards the Rocks. About an hour into the day we hooked up our first fish on the troll and fought the fish to the boat it was a Monster BlueFish. The 20 kt. winds out of the North East kicked the angry water to 4 to 6 ft seas. All in all we had a great time! Thanks Capt. Mark and Capt. Eddie

Drove a little more North to the grounds before all the heavy traffic they were right there waiting. Birds all over n fish splashing on top. Started Trolling hooked up 2 fish right away within in 1 hour boxed our limit. The guys wanted to pitch some live bunker at the Bass so we did 8 more fish caught and RELEASED.
