Unlike yesterday,we were treated to beautiful weather on the porgygrounds today. The fishing wasn’t hot and heavy, but we had consistent action all trip. The highlight of today’s trip was the variety of fish caught. Besides jumbo porgies and seabass, we had 10 keeper cod, a few nice pollock, several nice winter flounder and plenty of jumbo choggies aka ocean perch. All in all it was a solid day of mixed bag fishing.
We have had some issues over the last few trips regarding customers trying to take undersized fish. We would like to make it very clear that, as tempting as it may be for some, we are very adamant about staying within the confines of RI fisheries regulations. Keep in mind that the mates can and will go through coolers and discard any undersized fish that may have been harvested.
Weather is not looking optimal for the next few days. The next scheduled trip is on Wednesday, but please call beforehand as the weather may not allow us to sail.
