  1. Well, I haven't been possting our trips until I got a reminder today via email. Block Island is hot with 4 trips this past week our customers were in for some big fish and some big hauls. Three trips brought home 12 fish each trip with a 28 pound average with each trip bringing in at least 2 in the fourtys. Saturdays trip we came home with 9 as the bite was early we boated them within the first hour of action at the peanut. The customers relaesed several waiting on mister big but it never happened. One of our trips I had a Major US Army home on leave from Afghanstain. I found out during the trip from a family meber that his team was the group that pulled Sadium Hussien out of the ground pit and brought him to the end of his rope..
  2. Well the boat is back in the water and ready to go after a very long winter. Squid are now in, tautogs are biting with the waters warming. I haven’t seen the poggies, but with the over cast skies they like to stay down. This weekend weather should bring them up. The bass are starting to arrive and this weekend should kick things up. The big change for us is the Fluke season in RI. Season open May 1<SUP>st</SUP> for the fluke with an 18 ½ in min length 7 fish. Two years ago it was 21 inches. Striped Bass - 28" minimum size, 2 fish/person daily limit, open season. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> Tautog - 16" minimum size, and three split seasons: from April 15 to May 31 (3 fish/person daily limit); August 1 to October 14 (3 fish/person daily limit); and October 15 to December 15 (6 fish/person daily limit). A fishery-wide closure, to protect the fish during their spawning period, will be in effect from June 1 to July 31. At all times when the fishery is open, there is a limit of 10 fish/vessel daily limit (superseding the per-person limits). Party and charter boats are subject to the same regulations, except they are not subject to the 10 fish/vessel limit. <o:p></o:p> Summer Flounder (Fluke) - 18.5" minimum size, 7 fish/person daily limit, May 1 to December 31 season. <o:p></o:p> Scup - 10.5" minimum size, 10 fish/person daily limit, May 24 to September 26 season. For party and charter boats, two split seasons: June 8 to September 6 (10 fish/person daily limit); and September 7 to October 11 (40 fish/person daily limit). <o:p></o:p> Winter Flounder - 12" minimum size, 2 fish/person daily limit, and two split seasons: April 24 to May 23, and September 25 to October 24. Narragansett Bay and Point Judith Pond, including the Harbor of Refuge, are closed to winter flounder fishing at all times. <o:p></o:p> Bluefish - no minimum size, 10 fish/person daily limit, open season. <o:p></o:p> For menhaden (pogies), a 200 fish/vessel limit in the Providence River and Greenwich Bay. <o:p></o:p> Well Joe and I are looking forward to a great season and hope to see you on the boat or on the water.<o:p></o:p> .
