Due to the growing number of requests made by anglers and small charter groups over the past two fishing seasons, and in an effort to expand fishing opportunities for those who prefer to focus on catching quality rather than a quantity of fish, Captain Greg is now making plans to do just that for those fishermen who want to experience fishing new areas never fished previously over the last three decades by the YANKEE CAPTS.
Starting in 2019, the YANKEE CAPTS will now explore and fish previously uncharted areas where anglers will be the first to fish upon and experience new deep dropping and shallower 40 – 60 fathom depth fishing. This will essentially be ‘virgin fishing grounds’ trips where you will never know what we will find, but more so in what you can hook into as these trips will now navigate to new fishing grounds.
Fishermen should expect to bring along fishing gear similar to which is used for deep dropping along Pulley and Rankin Ridge as well as the tackle requirements for the Pulley Ridge ‘Light’ and Halfway Ridge trips. We have a general tackle requirements page but will continuously update and fine tune the tackle needed as we get a better idea on what to use two days from the departure date. This is due to the new fishing grounds that will be chosen and fished on that particular trip.
The first trip on the 2019 calendar will be leaving at 2 pm on Thursday May 2ND and returning at approximately noon on Sunday May 5th. These ‘virgin fishing grounds trip’ will be STRICTLY LIMITED to 18 anglers to maximize your enjoyment and receive the highest quality service from our crew. So come join us in 2019 on the YANKEE CAPTS on what will be a memorable fishing experience!
