Lisa&Jake Tuna Fishing reports

Lisa & Jake had a 800 plus pound Tuna this week with the Fernando family that dumped 600 yards of line before the line broke be fore a disappointing crew.” It must have been gut hooked “Capt Kevin said as the leader was broken 12 inches from were the hook was crimped to the line. The group put in a great effort all day and has booked another day to try again!

On the Ground fish report, Cod fishing is the best we have seen all year! White bellied Cod 10-20 pounds have moved into some of the not so secret spots, It just takes the right captain to put you on them! Totes full of fish is a great birthday present Capt Kevin said as he made a coffee for the ride in the other day.
Capt Rob on the Kayman also had some great trips this week with Haddock to 10 pounds and a great number of 7-8 pound Haddocks, Capt Rob will be taking most of the Cod trips this fall as the Lisa&Jake will be after the Giant Bluefin Tuna

Charter fishing Gloucester MA

The Lisa&Jake fished the inshore grounds this week, After a Slammer offshore trip with old time 1000 pounds of ground fish and a 40pound Halibut to top it off. We were back 20 miles from Gloucester catching mostly Haddock. Great jigging action for those who could get the hang of the Kayman way to jig, These folks got fish on every drop! Haddock on the jig is such a fun way to fish! Pink Shimano butterfly jigs are the Captains favorite to land these Haddock that have been reaching 9-10 pounds

A good mix of Cod and Cusk have also been on the menu. Most days with advid anglers see well over 100 fish for the group! Now thats is some action!
September is here and the fishing should crank up as fall is approaching get your guys together to fill the freezer before the weather hits. Check the Kayman web for more Shared charters as they are selling out as soon as they hit the press.

Gloucester Fishing Report Kayman Charters

With the full moon tides and a lot of water flowing brings the smell of tasty clams to the hooks of anglers anticipating bites! This was the scenario last week as the rods were bending and anglers has their fill of Cod as well as Haddock. Haddock was scarce up to the other day, the strong tide brought in schools of Haddock to 8-9pounds! There were also juvenile Haddock in the mix that were released. This is indication that the Haddock are on the move. The Cod also appear to be on the move, more fish seem to be showing up in areas that were a dust bowl last week. This is good news for the bottom dunkers! The Kayman Too and the Lisa&Jake have not made many stops at all that nothing was caught, there are a few or a good amount of Cod,and now Haddock in most of the edges and deep holes we check!
The Kayman Too as well as the now famous Lisa&Jake have been hitting the ground fish areas daily and are up to date with the fish situations, there are a few days that are still open this May if you want to get in on the action. Shared charters are filling up and new ones are opening, May 8 is the next one with a couple of spots left. As always go to the “SHARED CHARTER PAGE” or kaymancharters.com to check on upcoming trips.

F/V Lisa&Jake limit out on Cod

Cod and Haddock fishing picking up as Gulf of Maine waters warm up.

As more boats hit the waters many reports of fish from Jefferys to Tillies basin and beyond of decent fishing. Kayman Charters did limit out on Cod the other day,We hope that this trend will continue as the fish have seemed to just showed up. Areas that had no fish the week before seem to have a nice pick of fish every drift.

Shared charters are available May 8 and May 13, Go to the Shared charter page at Kaymancharters.com for more dates and reservations

Bluefin Tuna Fishing F/V Lisa&Jake

A lot of Bluefin Tuna were landed last few seasons on F/V Lisa&Jake ! Charter customers had the experience of Landing School Tuna as well as Giant Bluefin Tuna. The boats Lisa& Jake and the Kayman Too will be ready to take clients fishing for Bluefin Tuna when the season opens on June 1.

 

Trolling Mackerel and Squid bars can be very productive in June for all sizes of Tuna! “You just don’t know what’s going to bite” says the long time Mate on the F/V Lisa&Jake ! It could be a 50 pound Bluefin Tuna or a 900 pound Bluefin; you have to be prepared for everything!

Tuna Charters f/v lisa&jake

With temperatures  plummeting below zero this last week I was working in the shop making  a new custom live well for Tuna fishing on the F/V Lisa & Jake. The heater in the shop broke one day and we froze as the repairs were made. Hopefully this live well will be state of the art and keep those precious baits alive!

John Bullard head of Noaa is said to not kick the can and go forward with the ground fish cuts on the commercial sector. Nothing is in stone yet but will be soon. What does that mean for us? Good question! The facts are that the recreational sector gets 33% of the total allocation. The recreational quota would end up being around 500mt. Last year at 9 Cod fish and unlimited Haddock the recreational group did not catch that amount, so why change the regulations. This is the scenario we are all hoping for!

Well this whole mess is not pretty and we will see how it pans out in the coming months. One thing will be for sure is April will be a busy month for recreational fishing. May first is the beginning of the new fishing year, that’s when any changes will be made.

At Kayman Charters we will start our Haddock trips after March 15; we have shared charter dates available for March and April at kaymancharters.com

Another issue that needs concern is the council passed a proposal to open closed areas to commercial fishing. There is one area in the western Gulf of Maine in particular that you fish. Please write a short letter to John Bullard and let him know, that is where I go fishing.
