PROWLER5 - THURS. , JULY 31st, FLUKE REPORT
Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Well the last couple of days I've been flying around out there burning a lot of fuel. Yesterday's fishing we started out south of Sea Bright down the beach, had no float, had to hook up and fly to Rockaway east. We picked away at some keepers and shorts and some keeper sea bass and a few big porgies. But they did bite real good the day before. Today's trip, we right east to Rockaway and it really didn't happen there. Just a slow pick on keepers and keeper sea bass. Anyway, we'll be back at it tomorrow and we're going to give it hell. We'll see you in the a.m. Thx., Capt. Scott
PROWLER5 - SUN. , JULY 27th, DAY TRIP FLUKE REPORT AND 3:30 REPORT
Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Capt. Jimmy had the boat out yesterday daytime fluking. He said it was slow in the morning but got a little better in the afternoon. I had the boat out last night for the evening trip. Had just a slow pick but it was a nice evening. I have the boat out today and it's a slow pick on the keepers with a lot of short action. Anyway, we will be sailing this afternoon at 3:30, we have some people coming down. Capt. Jimmy will be lighting up tomorrow and Tues. Thx., Capt. Scott
PROWLER5 - FRI., JULY 25th, UPDATE
Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Just want to let everyone know that Rob Hrbek no longer works on the Prowler5. I don't want to get into any details. But when you run a business I now know that you have to be around all the time. Even when you treat people good. As I did as an owner and Captain. You live and learn in this world. Brian and Alex are my deckhands and I have Capt. Jimmy Rivelli running the boat with me. Thx., Capt. Scott, Prowler5
PROWLER5 - THURS., JULY 24th, GOOD FLUKING
Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Fluking has been pretty good all week. Very good action when we're getting a drift and some limits earlier in the week. Today I was down the dock when the boys got in and Capt. Dave said they did well again in Coney Island, NY. Although we only had a light crowd today, 9 fares. And we've been doing good on our twilight 3:30 to dark trips on Sat. and Sun. Think starting next week Aug. 1st, we might add Fri. afternoons since they've been working out well. Also Rob said the pool fish has been averaging the last week anywhere from 4 to 7 lbs. So things are looking up. Thx., we look forward to seeing you - 5:30 in the a.m. Capt. Scott.
PROWLER5 - SAT., JULY 19th, FLUKE REPORT
Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Well we finally had our best day of the year with customers yesterday - a full boat, after not sailing for 3-4 days earlier in the week. Plus, there were a couple of bigger boats chartered. Anyway, the fishing wasn't great by any means. We had some keepers and shorts and worked the edge of the channel, but I would rate it a slow fishing day. Though, the fellow that took the pool was very happy - it was a good one. Thx., Capt. Scott.
PROWLER5 - WED., JULY 16th, UPDATE
Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We haven't sailed the last three days with the crappy weather BUT it's looking good for the next few days. Also, on our 3:30 - 9:00 trips (Fri. and Sat.) we will be sailing for fluke. The boys will see you at 5:30 a.m. tomorrow morning. Thx., Capt. Scott

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. As predicted only two half day boats sailed today with the crappy weather. We did have our best trip fluking on Wed. with lots o limits up to six pounds. So that was nice to see. As far as the 3:30 to 9:00 bass and blue trips they were very slow the last couple of Sat. and Sun. nights. Always seems to be the case around the July 4th weekend. Anyway, Capt. Jimmy Rivelli, Rob and Alex will be lighting up 5:30 sharp for the fluke trip tomorrow morning. Weather looks good for Sat. and Sun. Thx., Capt. Scott

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Well so much for the best fishing of the year on Wed. we sailed with 10 people today and a couple of boats didn't even make it out for a beautiful summer day in July.

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. I had the boat out on the fluke grounds today and it was kind of the same conditions as last Sat. The wind was honking this morning.

PROWLER5 - THURS., JUNE 12TH, UPDATE
Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. Not a lot to report all week. Most, but all big boats were tied at the dock this week. Our last trip was Sunday, we had pretty good fluking. Capt. Jimmy Rivelli ran Sunday night's trip and got some big bass plus blues. I had a complete slaughter of blues on Saturday night's 3:30 trip. Forecast is for crappy weather again tomorrow (Fri.)

Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. We already put 7 or 8 striped bass in the boat, although they are all shorts, fishing the end of the incoming. So we'll see what the outgoing brings. I'll give a follow-up report later. I noticed a whole bunch of live bunker moved into the area too. UPDATE: We're starting to get the outgoing tide and it's starting to be a beat down on the blues. Just counted 7 - 8 on before. Most of these are gaffers. UPDATE: Turns out it's a bluefish slaughter tonight. Capt. Jimmy will see you for tomorrow's 3:30 trip. I'll see you in the A.M. Thx., Capt. Scott

PROWLER5 - JUNE 6th, FLUKE REPORT, QUALITY FLUKE
Hey gang, Capt. Scott here. It was a good first couple of drifts out in the ocean. Think the first drift was the best. Drifted like 2-1/2 miles with some quality fluke and a lot of action. Today's pool winner was Sue McNamara of Port Reading, NJ with a nice big 7lb. fluke. Slowed up in the afternoon as we moved into the bay. It's going to be a glorious weekend weatherwise. Nice fluke day today. I'll see you bright and early in the morning 5:15. P.S. Bass and blues sailing 3:30 - 9:00 Sat. and Sun. I just got some fresh clams.
