    Capt. Bob of the Sunbeam Fleet reports that, "Our half-day bottom trips started last week with excellent results. We found plenty of porgies and sea bass right close to home. Half-day blues & bass were again up and down. Saturday's customers braved a few showers for excellent fishing both trips. We also caught a lot more keeper bass this week. When fishing is slow on the blues & bass we go to the bottom and everyone goes home with plenty of fish! We would also like to thank John, Mike and all the volunteers from the Fishing Academy of Massachusetts. These folks did an excellent job of teaching our young anglers not only the art of fishing but also life lessons. We offer kids trips (Thursdays) for our young anglers and it was an absolute pleasure to spend time with an organization that has the same passion as us. Just a few weeks left for our Striper Sunset Cruises we sail every Monday, Wednesday and Friday departing at 4:00 pm."

    Capt. Bob of the Sunbeam Fleet reports, "Another week of great fishing! Half-day trips were good with bass from 12 to 43 inches and more blues are starting to show up this week as the water is getting warmer. Porgy fishing is excellent with plenty of sea bass mixed in. Sea bass have come in with some up to 5 pounds this week. A lot of our anglers have been limiting-out on diamond jigs and bucktails. We saw a decent pick of fluke of all nice sizes between 19 and 26 inches. This is our final week for half-day blues and bass Tuesday through Thursday as well as our last 8-hour fluke trip on Wednesday. We will be switching to half-day bottom fishing the first week of August, Tuesday through Thursday, so get your reservations in online today!"
