Enjoy riding in style on this beautiful 2006 22ft BlueFin ProFish. This boat is fully equipped with top of the line Raymarine Electronics which include side and down imaging technology, as well as radar for safe driving in any conditions. The BlueFin is equipped with a professionally maintained 250hp Suzuki 4 Stroke which allows us to get the fishing ground in as quickly as possible. The BlueFin is also equipped with a swim platform on the back of the boat which provides extra stability and makes for a comfortable fishing experience for the duration of your trip.
The boat will be stationed in the Connecticut River in Old Saybrook, CT for the spring run from May to late June. Then in late June we will move the boat over to the Thames River at Thamesport Marina in New London, CT so we can focus our trips on targeting trophy sized striped bass migrate along the shoreline of Eastern Connecticut and Block Island Sound.
In October we finish our season with the Fall Run or as we like to call it Top Water Time! This is the time of the year when we can target just about anything and everything. This bait fish are around in full force and migrating fish like false albacore, bonito, striped bass and bluefish are blitzing the bait fish along the Connecticut and Rhode Island shoreline which really can create some epic feeds that you will remember for the rest of your life. In addition, during the fall months the ground fishing really turns on locally! Throughout the fall we will be targeting Blackfish and Sea Bass on shallow and deep humps. Blackfish and Sea Bass are some of the toughest fighting fish pound for pound in our area and are also some of the very best eating fish New England has to offer. The Fall time really gives us the best opportunity to catch yourself the New England Grand Slam, which is Striper, False Albacore, Bluefish, Blackfish, and Sea Bass.
