Max Greenberg, Dante Redondo, Marco Greenberg and Mark Greenberg got up at 5:00 AM to go fishing. We all caught Robin Fish that day. Marco got the 1st catch of the day Mark 2nd Dante 3rd and Max 4th.
Marco catches the 1st sea robin of the day.
Not only did Dante catch a Robin Fish but he also caught a huge crab. Dante also caught another Robin Fish but we did not let it go, instead we cut his stomach open took out the meat and used it for bait, disgusting really, but useful.
We were originally going for Blue Fish but there were no Blue Fish caught. WARNING!! Watch out for Robin Fish people whom are going for porgy’s, the Robin Fish will rip the bait right off the hook!!
Blow fish have not been running much at all here in good old Sag Harbor, Long Island. Max Greenberg of the Rusty hook caught one in Barcelona Point after about two hours. Something isn’t right.
Today I went snorkeling in Long Beach and found out many things. The blow fish I saw were still babies. At this time of year I would expect big or even full grown blow fish. I also found this out with robin fish.
MY THEORY is that the messed up weather this summer has affected the time of year the fish come out. If my theory is correct, blow fish will be really biting in a week and will bite for about another month. I will continue my research and try to find out further information, but for now, this is what I know. So good luck and I hope you can catch some fish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
August 3rd 2013. The first snapper catch of the season begins.
Sini, our newest Rusty Hook member from Madrid, Spain joined us in Sag Harbor for our first snapper fishing of the season. She had never gone fishing before, but she got lucky that day with three snappers.
