Black Fishing

Captain Bobs favorite fishing.  Black fish trips end our season.  When the water is cool the black fish move in.  Black fishing is done at anchor and we use green crabs. Warning these fish are very tricky to catch but also the most rewarding and best eating.  Average size 3-10 lbs.  Approximate run is 30-45 minutes.
