Thank you...

All of us here at Eastman’s want to thank everyone for an incredible year. Too many employees to list, but every single one of them express their sincere appreciation. I hope we did a great job in return.

We would really have liked to continue running because of the last three weeks of the best fishing ever, and with the water temperatures it would probably last into February; but between mandatory USCG inspections, and work on the hull and bottom, we must close and haul out.

The Preseason Contracts will go out the end of January with the same conditions as always. We will be closed December 23, 2018 through January 31, 2019. The Tackle Shop will reopen February 1st, Monday through Saturday (closed on Sunday’s) from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

We will begin our fishing trips again March 29, 2019. Think Redfish!!

We wish you all Happy Holiday’s, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The entire Eastman Gang

Absolute Mayhem!!!

Really too bad we couldn’t keep fishing, fishing like this for so long is unbelievable. Next few days we’d be in port due to weather, but fishing like this two or three days a week into February would be amazing.  Today’s trip is on the way home, and our last trip is tomorrow (Sunday).

This year the Lady Merrilee Ann will be hauled out for the winter for some “extra loving care” in the boatyard.  The USCG requires this every other year for a dry dock hull inspection, so the crew will be busy in the boatyard through the winter keeping the “Queen of the Fleet” in tip-top shape for the spring (as they always do).

Looking Ahead

Due to forecast gales this coming week, and extreme low tides next weekend, (12/22), this Sunday (12/16) is the last trip of the year. We still have room Saturday (12/15) & Sunday (12/16)!  Fishing has NEVER been better, actually ridiculous!! I’ll sign off for the season Monday and GIft Certificates are only available until 12/22!

We will be CLOSED starting 12/23 through 1/31/2019; reopening the Tackle Shop Feb 1, 2019.

Thursday a Slam Dunk!!

Another slam Pollock and Haddock today!!! Room Saturday and Sunday as of right now! Friday full! We’ll be looking at extended weather and decide when our last trip will be and if you wanna be sure to get out again this year I’d go this weekend because who knows what the weather will bring!

Insanity Over & Over

Never have we had a stretch of massacres so many days in a row. Except for last Wednesday when it was only really good, every trip is nonstop up and down, mix of big Pollock and Haddock in the same spot, which is rare. Some guys had over 50 fish. CRAZY!!!!! Running out of days, 22nd is the absolute last day but it’s December so won’t get all those days in. We are closed tomorrow(Wednesday) due to weather but have some room Thursday and Friday. Weekend is questionable due to potential storm.

It Gets Better & Better!!

Insane fishing - Haddock limits and lots of big pollock!!!! Plenty room tomorrow, Thursday & Friday.  Wednesday cancelled due to weather.
