On vacation last week in West Yarmouth and we booked a charter out of Bass River on the EmmaJack. Captain Mike took us out to Monomoy off Chatham to troll plastic squid in the rips. There were (6) of us, actually (5) as one of the daughters got sea sick and spent the trip below deck. She was a real trooper because we suggested ending early and heading back in and she insisted we stay. We didn't have the heart to tell her we were bluffing...
First time fishing the rips, and I was the only one with any fishing experience in the group. We could've limited out in 15 minutes so I curbed the enthusiasm by tossing back tons of fish that were 'only' in the 35" range. All of the boat rods were rigged up with heavy test line, 50lb main line w/80lb leader, but it still gave a great fight! We ended the party about an hour early after catching a couple of good size blue fish for smoking...
Great trip and I recommend Captain Mike and the EmmaJack to everyone!
