LMA Report

Monday’s Marathon and Tuesday all day was great weather and great fishing both days, Haddock and pollock! Dana and Mary, two of our favorites, had 25 haddock keepers and 5 pollock between them and plenty of action all day! We added a Friday Sept 27th Marathon 6am-6pm cause of the demand with the cod opening!!

Update 9/5 0700

Yesterday, unlike Tuesday, wasn’t as good. Mainly due to a very tough SE breeze. Fish we’re still there and lots with5-8, but many with 1 or 2, wasn’t great. We will be operating tomorrow(Friday) and out today. We are not operating Saturday due to Hurricane Dorian, although I don’t think we’ll see much affect on us, just don’t want everyone to show up and not sail. Sunday is 100% go. Charters on Saturday will be contacted with options and all prepaid on the public boat will be refunded, and everyone called. Prepaid will also receive an email. Looks like a great Fall. We are operating 7 days a week into January, as always weather permitting.

Update

Labor Day has come and gone, crazy summer, but successful even with the tides and lack of dredging. They will be dredging this Fall, so for a couple(hopefully 4-5) years we won’t have to deal with that for a while. Fishing last Thursday was incredible with limits of Haddock, plus Pollock, Reds and Cusk. Friday, Saturday and Sunday was difficult to Fish due to screaming tides, most caught dinner but the fishing was tough leaving the numbers low. Yesterday on the LMAIII marathon was decent and the tide has started to subside. Still tangles were prevalent but looking like a turn in the program. Running 7 days a week, please call for reservations. There will be no affect from Hurricane Dorian this far north, just the south shore of NE.

Summer winding down!

The morning chill last few days reminded us all Fall is around the corner. Fishing has been incredible for the month of August. Haddock are great, Pollock showing up in good numbers. Mackerel are solid most every trip at the Isles of Shoals. Yesterday(Sunday 8/25) was very rough. Two of the big boats returned before even getting to fish, two others struggled through and killed the Haddock. Although I would guess not pleasant for everyone, loads of Haddock filets to go home with, and of course we warn everyone of weather conditions prior to departure for their decision to go or not. The last few night trips are this week, Bass trips have ended(darkness). We will quickly move into Fall mode, concentrating on ALL DAY Haddock and Pollock, and a few half days for Mackerel through the month(reservations suggested, so you won’t be disappointed when you arrive). And if you haven’t heard Haddock are open through 2019(15 at 17”pp) and if your looking for that 50# Cod or any Cod, along with all those Haddock and Pollock, Cod opens September 15-30. Last Year Pollock fishing got better and better as the weather got colder, slams all of November/December! This winter we will operate into January. Remember the LMAIII was built to fish cold weather, with insulated heated cabins, outside heated handrails and satellite TV for the dark departures and arrivals. Plenty of charter dates available for all vessels, call for info. Even though it’s not close to over, thanks for a great summer so far, we appreciate it.
