Five girls is a 2006 lurhs vessel solid safe 32 ft has comforts with sleeping quaters, TV, fridge with flybridge and has 725 hp twin screws to get you out safely and not bounce all the way to fish as many open consoles do, you are inside protected from elements and fresh ready to fish. As a scientist and military expert respectively, Capt Joe and Mike fished the globe and we find fish and teach you, the how and why and get you involved at the planning stages, float plans, choosing bait and strategy is our difference. We value your input, ask questions, work together and we put you on fish. And have fun. Many promise fish, we put you on fish available and running, our success speaks volumes. Water temp, structure above and below water are just part of equation. Knowing the hot spots, have enough of right bait and speed to troll makes it a Scientific approach that data proves success in the catach.
Besides having five daughters and loving the sea, I am an experienced scientist that has fished most of the globe; growing up in a family owned fish business in North East with over 30 years of fishing experience, I have learned the roots and tools of the trade from my Dad and Uncle catching and treating fish with respect; utilizing the entire animal, filleting fish and studying what fish eat, delivery of bait and probability of success in the most productive areas you have access.
Having a plan is the key to success in any task; before the trip we will set up a time to talk with the Captain, Mates and YES with you and your team learning: What are your goals?, equipment you may want to use, fish you want to target, if not in season, my team will tell you and we may need to rethink a new date or target species with higher probability. Goals are to land fish you want!
Methods and Materials:
Team will rig the night before, I recommend you join my team the night before and have a hands on learning experience on the “prep night before” From tackle checks to rods through reels we utilize the best equipment to land you fish, including: 50W and 80W Penn Internationals, never skimping on rigs, Large baits catch bigger fish, ballyhoo, live baits and trolling lures are great but checking quality of baits often like a scientific experiment, results in catching more sizable fish. I only ask you take whatever you will plan on eating and not one fish more.
