Haddock fishing will open again on November 1! The Lisa &Jake will make some November trips this year to load up on some Haddock and Pollock for the freezer!
October Tuna has been hot and will be sure to continue for a while with the abundance of bait and warm weather.
Recreational size Tuna around 100 pounds have been taken on most trips just 10 miles off the beech, along with giant 400 plus size fish that are released on the side of the boat.
Porbeagle Sharks have invaded our offshore grounds. Every trip we get a shot at one or two Sharks. these ferocious predators are after anything that moves including your prized Haddock!
Baits are put out on a shark rod and we have had several hook ups. Larger sharks over 300 pounds have been released because it is to much meat for some groups. We have landed a handful of Sharks under 200 pounds. The are very similar to a Mako shark in looks and flavor for steaks on the bbq!
Haddock fishing has been steady with a nice mix of Pollock and Cusk. Lot of action on the full day trips!
Shared, full day and Marathons all have availability!
Fishing has been fantastic this past week with a nice mix of fish!
Pollock, Cusk and Haddock have been coming over the gunwales on every drop!
The fish have moved to some deeper water than the last few weeks and the Summer weather rolls through. The Haddock like the cooler darker water so as the days get longer and the temperatures rise they seek these conditions.
Porbeagle Sharks have shown up everywhere and we have had encounters with them. These are good eating fish like Mako Shark and add some excitement to the day.
August has a few shared trips open and weekends are open for private charters see kaymancharters.com for reservations
Haddock are back in the Shoal water and lock and load fishing continues!
here is the latest new letter
Haddock fishing outside Gloucester is as good as it gets for Kayman charter fishing!
Haddock fishing was non stop over the weekend! Great groups enjoyed some light tackle fishing to catch limits of nice Haddock!
Nuno Decosta’s restaurant provided some great eats as always!
Large shrimp cocktail for breakfast, Stuffed Eggplant and Chicken Marcella for lunch , and the traditional cannoli’s for the ride in!
A lot of fish had to be culled through to get the boxes filled with the nice 22 to 25 inch Haddock. So many fish have been coming over the gunwale anything that had to be measured was thrown back!
A short run to the grounds in shallow water makes excellent fishing for the light tackle angler! A small reel and a eight oz. jig works wonders on these hungry fish!
Marine Fisheries promotes sustainable, rebuilt resource
In recent years we have rarely heard positive news about the status of groundfish stocks in New England. The iconic cod stocks of the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank have declined; scientific projections of several species of flatfish have been pessimistic; and both commercial and recreational fisheries have faced large reductions in catch limits for most groundfish species. However, there is a completely rebuilt species now more abundant in our New England waters than it has been in nearly 40 years—haddock! The haddock success story didn’t happen overnight, but with some luck and the diligent efforts of fisheries scientists and managers, including those at MarineFisheries, haddock is incredibly abundant and now an excellent choice and example of sustainable seafood consumption.
The unprecedented 1963 year class likely kept the Georges Bank haddock stock from total collapse during the increased fishing effort era of the 1970s; however, it presented a scientific challenge in determining the cause for such a large recruitment event that didn’t happen again until 40 years later. The 2003 year class was nearly double the size of the 1963 year class, and questions about what caused these massive recruitment events still remained. Fortunately, less than a decade later, in 2010, another enormous year class was observed on Georges Bank, only to be surpassed by the largest year class ever observed in 2013. Similarly, the Gulf of Maine haddock stock had historic huge recruitment events in 2012 and 2013, and both stocks were declared rebuilt in 2008.
