The morning chill last few days reminded us all Fall is around the corner. Fishing has been incredible for the month of August. Haddock are great, Pollock showing up in good numbers. Mackerel are solid most every trip at the Isles of Shoals. Yesterday(Sunday 8/25) was very rough. Two of the big boats returned before even getting to fish, two others struggled through and killed the Haddock. Although I would guess not pleasant for everyone, loads of Haddock filets to go home with, and of course we warn everyone of weather conditions prior to departure for their decision to go or not. The last few night trips are this week, Bass trips have ended(darkness). We will quickly move into Fall mode, concentrating on ALL DAY Haddock and Pollock, and a few half days for Mackerel through the month(reservations suggested, so you won’t be disappointed when you arrive). And if you haven’t heard Haddock are open through 2019(15 at 17”pp) and if your looking for that 50# Cod or any Cod, along with all those Haddock and Pollock, Cod opens September 15-30. Last Year Pollock fishing got better and better as the weather got colder, slams all of November/December! This winter we will operate into January. Remember the LMAIII was built to fish cold weather, with insulated heated cabins, outside heated handrails and satellite TV for the dark departures and arrivals. Plenty of charter dates available for all vessels, call for info. Even though it’s not close to over, thanks for a great summer so far, we appreciate it.
