Fishing Report - Week of 9/8

Week of 9/8
Tues 9/9
A private charter aboard Sea Otter IV today provided a terrific mixed bag for Bob Gull and friends. Terrific sea bass bite in the morning. The guys then switched to striped bass where they scored their limit after which they were releasing fish in the 30 pound range. The biggest bass of the day tipped the scales at 36 pounds.
Wed 9/10
Krispy Kreme Nagel and pals had an excellent mixed bag fishing trip aboard Sea Otter IV today. Lots of big porgies over the rails mixed in with some nice sea bass. Switching gears to stripers the guys kept plenty busy with fish tipping the scales at 30 pounds plus.
Thurs 9/11
Pat Folen with family and friends were out aboard Sea Otter Iv for a half day trip. They trolled some nice stripers and kept it interesting with a decent bluefish bite.
Sat 9/13
Earl Harris headed out with some friends aboard Sea Otter IV. Awesome porgie bite to start things off where they also got into some sea bass. They then pulled up some stripers and ble fish.
Aboard Sea Otter V today, Casey and the Great Gun Angler Fishing Club fished with Captain joel for a mixed bag day. Plenty of porgies and some nice sea bass over the rails. Mike nabbed a nice 5 1/2 pounder. Switching to diamond jigs the guys kept rods bent on striped bass and bluefish action.
Saturday nights striped bass trip with live eels aboard Sea Otter V was a good time. Good start to the evening, a little slow during slack tide and then great action on the outgoing tide. George Storry was high hook with 3 keepers. Steve Kreuser of Canterbury nabbed his limit as well as scoring the pool winner at 25 pounds.
Sun 9/14
The open boat trip aboard Sea Otter V for porgies was not a disappointment. Plenty of porgie action with Brian Johnson taking the pool with a nice one just shy of 4 pounds. After getting their fill of porgies out came some diamond jigs for some good bluefish action and some short bass.

Please note that Sea Otter V's open boat schedule out of Groton has some terrific Porgie trips going at 8AM on Fri, Sat & Sun. Mondays are 9AM striped bass and bluefish runs. Pack your lunch and head on down. Sea Otter V is NOT available for the daytime trip on Sat. 9/20.
