Capt. John's Sunbeam Fleet

June 17, 2019:
Captain Bob of the Sunbeam Fleet reports, "It was another good week of fishing. Half-day blues and bass trips showed good action again on smaller stripers. Our midweek trips were excellent, however the weekend trips were a little slower due to breezy condition but we were still able to land fish! We're starting to see some bigger fish move in now that the water is warming up; the biggest fish being a 45-inch 40-pound striper caught aboard the Sunbeam VI. We also saw a couple more blues this week so hopefully they're on their way. Fluke fishing stayed local this week and had a nice pick of decent fluke up to 5 pounds with some black sea bass mixed-in. We're now sailing daily so make sure to check out our website to reserve your spots on any of our open boat or private charter trips."
