We’ve moved permanently from CT to FL and our Norwalk phone number is no longer viable.  We can be contacted via cell at 203-515-9417 or our Sebastian land line: 772-589-4952. We’ll be monitoring the fishing action on the rivers here and will keep interested folks apprised of what we learn.

To all the anglers who’ve sailed with me for the past 35 years I want to let you know that 2018 will be my final season as a charter captain.  My wife Bonnie and I have sold our Norwalk home and will be making Sebastian FL our permanent residence at the end of October. I […]

Local fishing is finally heating up but our marina will be shutting down at the end of the month in anticipation of its much-needed dredging project. We’ll be pulling My Bonnie from the water two weeks so if you’d like to book a trip before then please contact me ASAP.

Since our last report we’ve been out a half a dozen times doing very well with porgies short sea bass and the occasional keeper fluke.  On one of the trips we ran into a school of small bluefish and were able to enjoy some top-water action.  The blues were only in the 1-2 pound class–but […]

We’ve been telling you about the bountiful porgy catches throughout this month and Dan Welch and his party caught some of those scup; he sent us a photo of the Thai Porgy Stew that they enjoyed for dinner last Sunday evening. Here it is.  Doesn’t it look great? And last night I microwaved some porgy […]

We’ve gone out several times since our last report; again large porgies were extremely plentiful.  Today we also got fluke sea bass and a half dozen sea robins. Lots of bunker schools and small bait are all over the place so maybe large bluefish and stripers will be attracted to our part of L.I. Sound […]

We’ve fished several times since our last report and the results for each trip were quite similar.  PORGIES.  Lots of porgies.  Of course we got some small sea bass and fluke but no bluefish–which is very unusual for this time of year. Striped bass can be caught at night–and a few schoolies in the early […]

We fished on Thursday with co-workers Blake Paris and Lance Wika of Stamford along with Norwalk residents Lindsay Merchant Henke   Adam Henke and Akshar Crupta.  We were busy for six hours bringing in porgies fluke (including a keeper dropped at the boat ) some sea bass and  sea robins.  Sixteen porgies were kept for a barbecue […]

Today was cool and windy but we left the dock at 8:30am with Dr Steve Eliot of Weston and his friend Ben Cohen–entertaining his grandchildren Josh and Ethan visiting from Costa Rica.  They hauled in porgies nonstop and kept six for their evening barbecue.

Although the weather reports were less than ideal we sailed with Myles Wolfe and his young family at 10am.  The thunder storm never arrived and although it was a bit windy and cool the family brought in a passel of porgies and took home lots of fish for a family barbecue.

Today’s results were better than we’d seen for the past several trips. We sailed in the morning with Chris Skoczen of Fairfield CT and his sons Luke and Ben.  They caught a mess of porgies two fluke   and sea robins.  All the fish were released.

Today’s trip was a bit disappointing.  Although the weather was cooperative all we managed to catch were half a dozen sea bass five fluke–all shorts–and a few porgies and sea robins.  No rhyme nor reason as to why the fish disappear one day and return the next.  Maybe tomorrow’s trip will be more productive….

Sunday morning was a bit damp and chilly but we sailed at 7am with Drago Dentche of Norwalk his son Ryan and Ryan’s friends Matt Hidy and Sean Lee of Stamford.  They caught 25 fish including sea bass (kept four ) a few porgies and one short fluke.

We fished early today with Hout Ly of Darien and his brother Tony a Boston resident and their dad Seng Ly from Portsmouth   New Hampshire. The conditions were perfect and everyone caught sea bass porgies striped bass and bluefish–many keepers among them.

2012 season is in full swing. Have been trolling up striped bass and some blues. The party from Indeed in Stamford caught and released 20 blues and a striper on a 4 hour trip. Plenty of prime dates open so come out and join the fun. Capt B 203 792-2277

Blackfish season opens up Oct 1 2010. Don't miss out on what should be a great blackfish bite this fall. Early reports have shown there are fish already in the area. Open dates are available so come out and don't miss out on some fine fishing. Last Wednesday a group from Verizon engineering caught as many blues as they wanted then released the rest...
