Previous Reports

    Doug at Watch Hill Outfitters said that a few boats went down to the canyons to tuna fish on the last weather window, but they did not follow up with their results. Doug did pass along info on an ongoing mahi bite throughout the Shipping Lanes, where the fish are numerous and large. The only other offshore action this week was in the form of codfish, which were caught in good numbers out on Coxes Ledge.

    Harrison at Watch Hill Outfitters said that the storm swells have been great for his surfing, but not so much for those trying to get offshore. He did have one commercial guy tell him about some small yellows and a decent bigeye in an undisclosed canyon, but that was the only report to come through the door.

  • October 14, 2019 Open or Close

    Harrison at Watch Hill Outfitters said that one of their clients tried to sneak in a tuna trip to the Shipping Lanes just before the blow, but experienced some surprise engine trouble, ending the trip before ever reaching the grounds. The big storm kept everyone else tied tightly to the dock.

  • October 7, 2019 Open or Close

    Harrison and Doug were in the shop on Sunday morning at Watch Hill Outfitters and like most other local guys, they didn't have much recent offshore intel to speak of. Mid-week saw some big bull mahi from the canyons, but that was the last time anyone go out there. The fish were pretty much on any structure and willing to chew. Closer to home, they heard of some improving cod fishing at Coxes as would be expected this time of the season.
