Welcome to you and all our fellow New englanders
Let's make this the place to watch this season !!!!!
I will try my hardest to post pics and reports
My name is Steve (just in case you couldn't figger that one out fer yerselfs).
I've been a member on this site for a while, but I'm not sure if I have posted yet (except for now).
I have been fishing as long as I can remember, (which isn't saying a lot). I'm damn near a half century old. I live in central Connecticut, fishing out of Clinton, with the likes of Makowish and Madchark, mating when needed on the Bluefin.
I enjoy fine dining and walks on the..........Damn! wrong forum.
I enjoy rigging tuna/marlin lures, looking for that magic bullet that will make me rich and famous. I'll settle for a few lures that will catch a fish now and then.
Sharking makes me happy in the pants also, fishing in as many tourneys as I can get away with. (Did I mention that I'm married).
Largest shark I caught was an over 500lb mako (estimated by length and girth, and a little good old fashioned embelishment).
I look forward to lying, I mean, talking with you folks in the future.
THEY call me Bullit. YOU can call me anytime you need an extra hand on board......Steve

My name is Chris. I live in NY but don't fish there. I do most of my fishing in Point Judith RI for fluke,seabass and blackfish. The I do a lot of cod in Hyannis MA or Seabrook NH. Love it up in NE over the other places.
My name is Vin and together with the Admiral we run Seaker Sportfishing out of Buzzards Bay. I have been running off shore from here since 72 with my first rig a 28 twin Stamas. Simply put I love to fish and that means all species. I enjoyed extensive salmon fishing in Canada and tied fly's commercially for Hunter's in New Boston NH when Bill Hunter ran the shop. I was fortunate enough to tie with the likes of Poul Jorgensen, Paul Phinney and others much more talented than myself. I gave all my tying materials away to those who would keep the tradition alive.
I love Quohoging,(is this really an activity?) lobstering and as stated earlier all types of fishing but only salt water these days. From Cod and deep water ground fish to tog and black sea bass, stripers and blues, makin bait and gettin the bait eaten .....I like pullin plastic, bars and meat. My big love is offshore in the canyons and that is the driving force for Seaker. We do corporate charters and tournaments of which Shoe, Danny, Mikey D and Pete D will be on board for Cuttyhunk.
I have learned a bunch from Capt. Chris G and recommend his products and services to anyone that will listen. We pull his gear behind Seaker and Shoe and crew will see plenty of it in the near future.
Our motto is we are only as good as the next catch! No resting on past events here
Here's a picture from yesterday
Man, it looks like the New England forum is gonna be a big hit.
Keep 'em coming and tell a few friends.......Steve
nice catch Vin, looks like someone is having haddock for dinner. I have heard the haddock fishing has been off the hook this year( literally). i friend went to race point yesterday and got a few keeper cod and a half dozen haddock. Said it was 2 to 1 haddock on clams.
anyone heade out midweek the weather looks great
How's your bait ?
Johnny Walker, grew up in the Boston Burbs and H.S. in Newburyport, one of the coolest little fishing cities on the East Coast, here I caught the fishing bug, both in-shore for Striper's and off-Shore for Cod, Shark and Tuna.
Picked up my first boat a 25' Grady after college and have never stopped fishing, ran a small charter operation out of Boston on a 26' Hydra Sport as well as mated on a few local boats running near shore to Canyon trips and have been fishing many of the NE tournaments as well as Mexico, Bahamas, Florida and So. Cal.
Moved out to Cal last year for family and WEATHER reason's, worked the top S.D. 6 pack boat running 1-2 day off-shore trips to learn the local fishery..All live bait conventional tackle out here...different techniques for sure... and have been working at Melton International Tackle in Sales and Marketing, I will be hitting a bunch of the East Coast tournaments this season.
Miss those early season Cod runs to the bank and beyond, anybody worked the dump, B Buoy, Banana and inside spots recently? this time of year you can do some good damage inside before the fish move out...
HOPE THE SECTION TAKES OFF, TELL YOUR FRIENDS, GET EM ON TO ADD INTEL, CONTENT, STORIES, PICS ETC...

Names Tyler, been fishing on my fathers boats since birth, mainly for GBFT. Used to have the striped bass bug pretty bad, but it turned into a full blow tuna addiction. I spend my summer's on my 25 mako commercially fishing for bluefin and striped bass. I also mate on charter boat as well as a commercial tuna boat.
SHOE... Is this the year we see the blue boat trolling?
Nice catch Vin: you're making me hungry up here!!
