2000 Fishing Trip


The 2nd Annual AO Westchester Fishing Trip
July 12, 2000

What a fabulous day.  We could not have asked for better weather - not a cloud in the sky, hardly a ripple on the Sound and this year we actually caught fish.  On behalf of all those who went on the trip we would like to thank Capt. Pat of the Shamrock IV and the crew - Chuck and Joe.  The boat departed the Ft. Slocum dock in New Rochelle at 7:45 am and we soon started our day fishing for bluefish.  As you can see from the pictures below we did pretty well.   The expertise of the crew of the Shamrock IV showed when Chuck would cast in his line and within a minute bring in another bluefish.  We all suspected that it was same fish each time because we all stood there casting and reeling and casting and reeling and...... while Chuck would cast and catch, cast and catch, get the picture.   After a few hours of fishing for blues we moved on to the more sedate activity of fluke fishing.  We were equally successful catching the fluke this year.  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 First of Many!!
