A Few pictures of the overnight trip offshore were Cod fishing was as good as it gets with Cod to thirty plus pounds and many twenty five pounders as well! This trip left at 10pm with a nice ride to the grounds the boat arrived at the grounds for a daybreak bite. With the fish stacked up fifteen feet high it was lock and load fishing! Every time the jig hit bottom it was “FISH ON”. The group fished as long as they could limiting out on Large Cod plus boxes of Haddock and Pollock to add to the catch!

Large Sharks attack the catch as they are brought to gaff

August has been a prime time for large Sharks! With the water temp in the seventies these hungry creatures are everywere! The commotion of fish being caught attracks these creatures to the boat and they seem to wait for the larger fish that struggle more to take a bite!

The other day folks had what could have been a record Haddock and all that came up was a huge head. Held next to a 9 pound haddock that was caught this fish was estimated to be over fifteen pounds):

Giant Tuna to 800 lbs caught by Charter!

Fishing remains steady on the Cod and Haddock as well as the Tuna! Craig Young landed a 350 pound Blue fin Tuna earlier this week on a live mackerel he jigged up inside the harbor in the early morning.

 Young Jake was on the boat mid week and he also was an excellent angler and fought a 200 pound Tuna to gaff. Some of these fish have been wild dumping 45 pounds of drag on the Shimano 130′s over and over again. The speed of the line dumping out at this incredible rate is quite a site to see!

The Todd Carrier group landed the fish of their life time last week as an 800 pound Giant Tuna inhaled their offering! The Shimano 130 light up like nobody’s business mid day in a fleet of boats, the reel was almost spooled when we got off the anchor and started chasing the fish between anchor lines and boats! The crew did an excellent job letting the fish run when told to and keeping the line tight to dance the boat out of harms way!

Forty minutes into the fight the Giant surfaced and thrashed around leaving a huge spray of white water and an incredible sight! We then got on top of the fish to put him into the death spiral and came up for an easy harpoon shot after 70 minutes!

Congrats to the whole group who all took turns and brought this fish to tail rope in a nice smooth way!
 
Cod and Haddock was dampened by Dogfish at a few stops but some nice sized Haddock and Cod were brought in despite the abundance of Dog fish, Cod to 20 pounds and nice 8-9 pound Haddocks made for lots of tasty fillets for anglers.
Kayman Charters is gearing up for the Fall Cod season which is usually a sold out event into the end of October, if you have plans on stocking your freezer with Cod book your trip soon as dates will be filling in. Next split trip is Sept 14 and Sept 19 see kaymancharters.com to sign up

Blue-fin Tuna Endangered Species??

As the Lisa&Jake and the Kayman Too get some love in dry dock I attended a “listing session” on Making Bluefin Tuna an endangered species. Thats right! for anyone who has a boat or fished on our boats the countless days of seeing Tuna busting from right outside the harbor to some of our spots 30 miles offshore.

This was petitioned by folks in Arizona to make Blue-fin endangered.  It was presented to NOAA who did not see any reason that Blue-fin Tuna should not be put on the endangered list.
Shame on them for using old data that was catch data only and basically for commercial size fish! This cost you your  tax dollars for five meetings houses plane fares and many administrative hours, to figure out that they don’t know what they are talking about.
It was made quite clear by approximately 100 fisherman and spotter pilots that there are so many juvenile and large Tuna of all different year classes on feeding days you can walk on them from Canadian waters down to the Jersey coast!
It was great to see a good turn out in Boston and I hope Maine goes the same way.
What will happen next;
After the Public Comment NOAA will evaluate the data and make a ruling by May 24th.
If all the comments were ignored and these meetings were a government parse and this Arizona group is tied into Obamas appointed environmentalist Dr Jane Lavabitch on May 24th they will rule Blue-fin Tuna an endangered species!
What does that mean?
Endangered species means NO TAKE or attempt to take. Yes no fishing for yellow fin or albacore swords ect…you might catch a Blue- fin Tuna!
Keep an eye on the actions of Jane Lavabitch and write any letter you can to stop here wasting your tax dollars to support these do gooders and put thousands of people out of work and take away a great public resources!
