Great day on the water ! Started off not so good with myself making the call of not going at 4:00am. My cousin Mike who was mate for the day was already down the boat. So we decided we should go out and give the giant’s a shot. As we were still close to home trying to make bait it was turning into a beautiful day wind died right out. I gave the charter a call back and told them we should give it a go. As it was a father and son and his son’s friend they were very excited to say the least. We picked them up at the new cruiseport inside Gloucester harbor. We then headed out to the bank with large rollers still left over not bad at all. Slow start as we arrived around 11:00am. With the Patriots game on the sun shining and a beautiful late October day the rod goes off. The two young boys we had on the boat were fishing finatics to say the least. What a great job they both did getting the fish to the boat. A short time later we boated a nice 44″ BFT turning the whole day around. A very excited crew and all glad we decided to go ahead with the trip. As we were listening to the Pats kicking butt in London we go off again. With the drag screaming pretty good we knew this was a better fish. We strapped Jackson into the harness and he went to work. We ended up boating a beautiful 68″ BFT in about 15 minutes. Which ended up giving us the slot limit and making it a banner day. Father and son trips are my favorite as it is thrilling to see the bonding that takes place. With the seas calm and the sun setting what a great ride home it was. A great trip that we all will not soon forget. Thanks
A great day had on the bank with the Hanney Charter catching four Tuna between 44″ and 70″ and tagged and released three. A little sloppy in the afternoon when the wind came up, but the group did a great job getting the fish to the boat. This trip was about a week ago and still many tuna around for sure. As it has been a great October so far for both tuna and the ground fish. Lots of life still around as the tuna will be migrating out of the area very soon. Hoping to end the season off with a few more great trips! I have attached some photos from a few recent trips as well. Thanks to all.
