Hello,

I am thinking about going fishing on the Seahawk, and I wanted to know if anyone has gone out on this boat and what type of experiences, thoughts and or input anyone would have for me and the forum. So far I have heard mixed reviews more  Angry then  Grin . Any input would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Gottog is friends with the owner/captain and sometimes fills in as mate.

Several members here have fished the boat.

I haven't seen any negative reviews by anyone who has fished on the boat.

I'm a regular there and friends with the captain and mates.  Did fill in as deckhand a few times on the old Sea Pigeon where the current Sea Hawk captain and mates came from but haven't worked a trip on this boat yet.  Doubt I will as they have quite a few guys in reserve and I'm low man on the totem pole.

Plus I rather just pay and fish with no worries thumbsup2  Too much work to do instead of just gathering my gear and leaving.  Scrubbing the boat in this heat would be a real PIA

Haven't heard of any negative reports form people that have fished the boat.  Obviously no one can control the actual catching of fish, but capt/crew give you 100% effort Grin

Feel free to contact me with any negative comments you've heard as I'd be mighty interested to hear them. greeting

So what was the negatives about the boat?  Like to bring anything to the attention of that captain so it could be corrected if possible.

Donnie? greeting

Captain burns alot of fuel looking for the fish and with fluke, constantly power drifting.  You'll get your money's worth on the boat with their effort, catching the fish is up to you though Wink  Catch em up thumbsup2

A good captain can only search for the fish, but I agree, you can be on top of them but your the one responsible for catching them.

To me, a Capt. who moves around to find fish is very positve.. Something I'm sure they would rather not have to do with these fuel prices, but proof that he's workin for ya! Got git'em thumbsup2

Gottog is right a good capt is going to burn fuel looking to put is clients on fish. At the price of gas he is not just going to ride around instead of letting his clients fish.

Got the report from today's trip from the captain, slow day.  Highlight was a bluefish blitz Tongue  DId say it would have been a pretty good haul if the limit was 17.5" instead of 18"

Thinkin' those fluke know to clench up tight when pulled out of the water.

Was getting his fuel bill when I talked to him and heard the total.  All I can say is OUCH!!! Lips Sealed

I would rather be riding around checking out all the known good fishing holes and finding different fishing holes than sit in one spot and not be catching anything.

Some days you have to move more than fish in order to CATCH fish. Anyone can drive a boat to one spot and sit. It takes a talented Captain to FIND the fish.  thumbs up

I've been fishing for a long time and I recently decided to try out a new boat so I took a trip up to Perth Amboy for morning fluke..it was without a doubt the worst fishing trip I've been on the crew is nice but I think the captains fish finder is broken.. I caught one fish all day and it wasn't a keeper and my three budies who I brought with me caught absolutely nothing.Now I know not everybody catches something but I have never seen it where the entire boat rarely caught anything at all.not even bites!!!..also what I never seen before is when he stops the boat he doesn't Anchor the boat dragging your jigs along the bottom ripping your bait right off the hook which you should never do especially fishing for fluke also he had the engine revving which obviously would scare all the fish away in the first place he never cut his engine once...I think there was a total of 30 people on board and maybe 2 or 3 keepers all day most fisherman  on the boat were complaining as well.. worst day fishing I've had in 15 years...I basically paid $75 for a boat ride
