Launch from Captain Scotts Lobster Dock aboard the luxurious Carolyn Ann for an awesome nighttime adventure with Captain Andy McGruer! His trips leave the dock at 7 PM so show up 15-30 minutes beforehand so Captain Andy can make sure everything is in order for an on-time departure....Read More
The Carolyn Ann is a 41' Hatteras fully decked out sportfishing vessel. Its cabin provides a comfortable lounging space and a full-sized bathroom as well. Needless to say, you will be wearing out the Bass in both comfort and in style!
During our standard trip, you can expect a combination of the three styles of striper fishing: umbrella trolling, snapping wire and three-way drift fishing. The first, when the tide (current) is not moving, is with umbrella rigs and trolling with wireline. Snapping wire is another very productive way to fish where we jig lures that look like squid on 300+ feet of wireline. Lastly is three-way drift fishing where we use braided line and 1+ pound of weight to get the lures down onto the shoal where the bass are waiting.
Captain Andy's trips come loaded with all the gear you'll need for a successful trip, so all you need to bring are your favorite snacks and beverages of choice, a tip for the first mate, and Captain Andy McGruer will make sure your well taken care of!
