Old Barney Charters Report

The last few trips have seen many species aboard The Bonnie Anne.  Last weekend we were on sea bass with Brian and Jim McGee and their father Jim Sr. on their annual Father’s Day trip.  The group was on the sea bass and left with bags of fillets filled with sea bass and ling.  Our first stop had throw back after throw back. It was our 3rd stop that was holding nice hump heads for the group.  Father’s Day I was out with “The” Bonnie Anne and our 3 boys, ages 8, 6, and 2. We hit sea bass for an hour and the kids put 8 in the box and then we played with cocktail blues using metals at the inlet. Perfect Father’s Day.  Sea bass opens again on July 1st.

This weekend I had Janet and Rich Krakowski out with sons Rich and Alex.  This was their first time ever bucktailing for fluke and Janet’s first time ever fishing.  We hit channel edges on the outgoing at the north end.  The group put 3 keepers in the box at 18”, 19”, and 20.5”.  The fish didn’t seem to prefer a certain color and all Gulp! colors produced. The group finished with over 20 fish, a couple 3ft. houndfish and a sundial.

School is out and we are fishing weekdays now!  We use top quality rods, reels, and tackle, provide all bait, and ice. Just show up and have a great time catching fish!  Call or email to book.
