The forecast was ominous...all the weather computer models were calling for clouds and showers...boy were they wrong!  It was a bit hazy but no rain, plenty of sun and LOTS of humidity!!!  This trip made up for all the previous fishing trips we have taken...no sooner had we left the dock (8:00am) when we came upon our first school of blues...and from that point on we were hauling them in at a record (for AO Westchester, anyway) clip.  One after another...we were "working" those fish.  They didn't stand a chance against us...seasoned anglers that we are...Once again Captain Pat and the crew of the Shamrock IV were fantastic...hey we can catch those fish but there is no way we are going to actually touch them.  As you can see by the pictures everyone had a great time and we hope that those of you that were unable to join us this time will make it next year!

The Calm Before The Storm!


Bob and the rest of the gang waiting for the Shamrock IV to cast off!

In Just a Few Minutes...

The Fishing Begins...


Note that Sy still has his hat in this photo...in just a few minutes a blue fish will bite his lure...the fight was fierce...so fierce in fact that we won't see that hat again!

She's Smiling Now...


Debbie waiting for a nibble...she would have to wait until late in the trip before catching her first fish...

Hey Over Here!


Sy, Don, Brian and Terry posing for the camera

Hey Aren't You Working?


Tommy insists that the singing attracts the fish to the boat!

But Not Yet


I guess the fish can't hear Tommy because we looking again!

Who Knew?


Harvey with one of the first catches of the day...he did not know it then but this would be the winning fish in the pool!

This Sure Beats Last Year!

Bob holding up the first of many he caught during the day...and they were ALL larger than the largest fish from last year!

He's at it again...

On A Roll....

What's That You Say?

I Really Was On The Boat

Lunch Already?


Don had a rough day...the fish just did not like his lure...he decided to take a lunch break!

Is this mine?  Don checking out the suspicious looking thing hanging from his lure.

Upon Closer Look...

Strangely enough this fish was suffering from rigor mortis before it was brought on board!

There You Are!


Hey Dad...great day!!!

The smiles tell it all!
