Capt. Matt reports we had fabulous weather for a full five days in a row which resulted in excellent production on the Black Hawk. Thursday’s trip was a combo where we spent half the day on the sea bass and cod, then the rest of the day on the togs. Steady pick on the Blackfish to 10 lbs. with limits of sea bass and a good mix of codfish to 15 lbs.
Saturday’s trip was the best of the week on the codfish with a good pick of nice green cod to 20 pounds. Sunday’s trip had a full boat limit of seabass, with a nice mix of codfish to 15 pounds. All trips have a good amount of action on the porgies even though we’re not targeting them. There has been a few pollock, bluefish and ling mixed in. Monday’s trip was another combo with the togs targeted first and then the sea bass and cod.
We’ll be sailing steadily, weather permitting, from our winter dock at Dodson’s Boatyard in Stonington Borough. Stay tuned to our website & Facebook for available dates and daily fishing reports and pictures. We hope to see everyone soon!

Our Black Hawk & the Community program continues to go strong- again, thanks to everyone for bringing in books, toiletries, socks and more. For the month of December, we will be collecting canned food items for the local food pantries, as they prepare for the upcoming holiday season. As always, thanks for helping us help the local community.
