July 26, 2010

Captain Derrick reports " It was a little breezy today and the fish wer much more bitey. All we needed was a little wind to stir the fish up - I do so love a northwest wind on the Shoals. The fish were smaller size. A lot of throwbacks with a few keepers mixed in. Our anglers only wanted to keep four fish. It was all catch and release after they took their fill.

Another great day! ~ Angler from Davie, FL

Thank U ~ Angler from Plymouth, MA

July 19, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "Squirrely weather today. The fish were moving around everywhere. Fishing was okay on incoming tide. We picked a few keepers and a few throwbacks and a bluefish. Action slowed down to a crawl at end of the trip. I suspect that when this weather blows through the fishing will improve. "

From the guest log:

Great Boat. Great Fun. ~ Angler from West Roxbury, MA.

July 18, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "It was just really lousy fishing on the Shoals today. There were small groups of bass scattered around. If you could get on top of one of the little groups you might get lucky and pick one up. The bait showed up with the outgoing tide, but the bass that should have been following it were missing in action. We stopped off at the edge of the flats so our anglers could get in a swim before heading back to the harbor. "

July 17, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "Another outstanding day. Saturday is a non-commercial day, but the area is crowded with weekend warriors - too many boats for us to be able to use the outriggers. The fish weren't as large as the ones we saw yesterday. We caught 40 keeper sized bass and two throwback sized. We also picked up another three big bluefish in the mix."

July 16, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "A great day! While we headed up to Provincetown for the early eight hour, our anglers settled into the salon and cooked up some breakfast in the galley. Once we set out our lines, the fishing was outstanding. The commercial boats don't fish on Friday, so we had room to move around and get on the good size fish. We easily limited out on 36" to 40" bass and threw back a lot more keeper sized fish. We also picked up a couple of big bluefish on the jigs which the guys cooked up in the galley on our way back to the harbor - it doesn't get any fresher. It was the best bluefish I have ever had."

From the guest log:

Another awesome day. ~ Angler from Weston, MA

July 15, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "Fishing wasn't terrible but is wasn't good either. We took some keepers jigging on the North Edge of the Shoals. Action was definitely better on the incoming tide and got real picky at the end of the trip on the outgoing tide."

July 13, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "After a bit of confusion at the dock, Liberty headed out, along with charter boats from around the Cape for the annual Special Olympics Tournament. We set out in deep water north of the Shoals off of the Path. The bluefishing wasn't as good as it was yesterday. However, we managed to find several small bunches of fish and even manage to pick up a keeper bass."

July 12, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "Boats fishing off of the Path reported hordes of bluefish in deep water. Action was so intense that they couldn't get a line all the way out before it went off. Our anglers wanted 'bass only' so we worked the fish on the North Edge of the Shoals and picked up several keepers on the incoming tide."

From the guest log:

16th time! Always good. ~ Angler from Southborough, MA

July 10, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "The fishing was good today. The fish were spread out all over the North Edge, even on top. The action slowed down a bit at slack water, but it didn't die like it has the past few days. The fish stayed active through the end of the trip."

From the guest log:

A great time again as always! ~ Angler from Readville, MA

First fish hooked 15 minutes out! ~ Angler from Burlington, MA

July 9, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "The fish are back on the North Edge of the Shoals. Once again, fishing was much better at the beginning of the trip on the incoming tide. We took several small keepers before the action slowed down at slack water."

From the guest log:

1st time. Enjoyed it. Thanks. ~ Angler from Nashua, NH

July 8, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "The fish have vanished from the North Edge of the Shoals. We found a small body of fish on the South Edge between a couple of lobster pots.They weren't overly hungry which resulted in a lot of short-hitting. We dropped a lot, but managed to land several 33"-34" fish."

July 7, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "Very good fishing jigging on the North Edge of the Shoals. Not too fast, not too slow. It looked like the same body of fish we were taking earlier in the week, but not as active. Fishing was definitely better on the incoming tide than the outgoing tide. Most of the fish were legal sized."

From the guest log:

Thanks again for another great day of fishing! Charlie's 1st big bass! ~ Angler from Westborough, MA

Thanks for the great fishing spot - Tyler loved it!!! ~ Angler from Grafton, MA

July 6, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "We headed back to the Shoals on the early 4 hour. The fish were bustin' on top of the water and they were eating. They were definitely taking the top water stuff. They were chasing plugs and the hoochies and rigs did pretty well too. Bluefish, small bass and keepers. We limited out in just a few sets."

July 5, 2010

Captain Derrick reports "Fishing was very picky on the Shoals over the late four hour. The fish were spread out and constantly moving. We picked up mostly small fish and a few keepers. Our anglers only wanted to keep two fish so we released a few of the keepers. Towards the end of the trip a seal popped up just under our outrigger. The seal was holding a freshly caught skate. After taking several bites of it's evening snack, it did a quick pirouette and then disappeared under the water. The young anglers aboard were quite amused."

July 4, 2010

Liberty's crew headed out early with the out-going tide for a family day. Many other charter boats were also out for a day of 'R&R.' Captain Eric and family, aboard the Tammy Rose, had already taken their fill of fish and were heading to the Island for some clamming by the time we passed the Shoals. We headed further out past Provincetown and set out the tuna gear in 200' of water near Peaked Hill. We found a lot of small schools of tuna on the surface along the edges of the rips. They showed some interest in the trolling gear, but never actually bit into them. Captain Derrick had a bit more action up on the bow with a spinning rod. He managed to tempt several fish to follow his lure right up to the boat.

We finally pulled in the gear and headed back to port, stopping just off the Race to pick up a few bass. Captain Marty fired up the grill and cooked up a nice assortment of fish, steak and linguica for dinner. We dropped off Captains Derrick and Kirstyn at Rock Harbor in time for them to meet up with friends for their own holiday celebrations. Captain Marty quickly turned Liberty back towards Provincetown where he and the Ship's Purser shared an anchor and enjoyed the fireworks with Captain John and his family aboard the Lucky Lady II. We anchored Liberty at the tip of the Cape for the evening before heading back to Rock Harbor at dawn.

July 2, 2010

Captain Marty reports "We set out jigging on the west end of the shoals and worked our way northeast. Our anglers decided on a 'catch and release' only trip. We released six or seven 32"-33" keepers and three or four bluefish."
