As our ground fishing season is about to come to an abrupt ending August 31,thanks to our wonderful government! I would like to thank all the group that did come to experience fishing on the Lisa&Jake!
We had quite a few new groups and Families that were wowed at the number of fish they caught! There has not been this many fish to catch in the last five years. If your bait bas on the bottom you had a bite in no more than 10 seconds..all year long at any of our hot spots!!! Not all fish were keepers but all non stop action with all nice Haddock,Pollock,Cusk and Redfish! and yes we had to let numerous 15 pound Cod swim for another day!
The boat will be open for Tuna trips on a limited schedule for any who would like to try their luck at catching a Giant !
For those who missed out on this short season, I hope to see you next year!
The Lisa&Jake has been fishing the Banks and Ledges out to 20 miles in search of all types of Fish! It seems no matter were we fish it is instant action! It has been years since you go to the spots and if you don’t have a bite in 15 seconds you lost your bait! Yes it has been that good! We have been catching a lot of Large Haddock, Cusk ,Pollock ,Cod and Large Sharks. Some of the fish we can keep and other must be returned due to regulations. All groups have had a great time and went home with a bag of fish.
August 31 will be our last ground fish trip of the year due to regulations. Beginning Sept first all trips can only target Tuna and Sharks. We still have some August openings so book now for best dates.
Fishing continues to be steady with limits of Large Haddock on every trip. Some of these fish are in the 7-10 pound range and give a good fight!
Folks have also caught some nice Pollock to 15 pounds as well as some nice 10 pound Cusk. Great weather has been with us on most days making for a great outing!
Sharks are showing up this month, we has one on for 35 minutes the other day before the fish took the anglers to the spool and the line parted. Summer is a great time for an outing to catch a few good eating fish and try your luck for some Shark or Tuna!
There are still plenty of openings and opportunities to get on a Shared Charter as well
As larger Haddock continue to flood the Gloucester waters we have added a Shared Fishing Charter on June 5. This trip currently has 3 openings.

Last weeks trips saw Haddock 7-9 pounds as well as some 10 pound Pollock. We did have our first Porbeagle attack but we will land him on the next trip!
A great weekend of fishing in Gloucester on the Lisa&Jake. Folks landed some nice Haddock and released a bunch of nice Codfish for another day. Six Wolffish were caught and released as well, that is the most wolfish we have seen in a while!
The great weather brought folks together for a great weekend of fishing!
We pulled all the lobster traps this weekend and caught 3 keeper lobster and through back 7 short lobsters and 3 egg bearing lobsters. We caught one Cunner and several crabs as well.
Last week the Lisa&Jake went out a few times and started our Lobster Fishing!
The Haddock were plentiful as we picked through the smaller fish to make sure their were all good sized fish in the fish totes. A group from Arizona visited us this week after running a relay marathon! Although they were limping their arms were fine and reeled in many fish!
At the end of the trip we went a pulled the lobster traps and explained the methods and how the lobster fishing works!
Although it is still early we had lobster in every trap!
The Lisa&Jake had a beautiful day on the water Wednesday were folks took advantage of the 2 for one Shared charter. All hands caught many fish and picked the ” cream of the crop” to fill their filet bag! Water was flat calm and the fish were biting!
Our first Lobster pots of the year went in Wednesday as well. Client Steve Georgopoulas took pride in hefting the pots over the side into the deep. Steve will be out again Sunday to go fishing with friends and check his catch!
The Lisa&Jake made the first trip this weekend to find calm seas and plenty of fish! Although it is still very cool on the water ” 44 degree water temp” all had a great day! The Red fish are spawning this time of year so some nice large ones were hooked by anglers as well as the limits of some nice size Haddocks!
This Wednedesday May 6 still has one opening for 2 for one Shared Charter! go to Kayman Charters.com to sign up!

We will start our fishing trips this week. For those who do not get the news letter I have put up some great never before heard of specials to get folks out fishing with our new regulations.
Next week has a promise of great Spring weather so join us for a day on the water at great reduced pricing.
Haddock, Pollock and Reds will make a great fun day and some good eating!
It is the end of April and we still have not been an able to fish because of the Government closures!
The Lisa & Jake is ready to go on May 1 when the bans are lifted!
We will offer different types of trips this year and have many last minute specials to get folks use to the new regulations.
The new regulation did come out the other day;
A brief summary of the new regs are;
No retention of Cod, that one affects a lot of folks as they look forward to catching the big one! We have had mostly Haddock the last few years as the Cod stock have been dwindling.
Haddock is unlimited in state waters and Haddock is 17 inch minimum with a 3 per person limit in Federal waters. that means 4 for my customers as the crew will give you our limits as well.
Pollock there is no bag limit on Pollock and an 19 inch size limit
Cusk and Redfish are also unlimited.
Flounder will also be on the menu this year as lots of folks love these tasty fish. These are a State regulated fish these are 8 per person with a 12 inch min size.
