WEewill begin the 2019 Season starting the end of April -beginning of May - Striped Bass
Well we sail out into the fog a drizzle last nigh and managed a few keeps along with some short action. I think the weather put a damper on the bite. The biggest fluke 5.4 pounds landed at the dock.
Yesterday trip was slowed by poor drifting conditions and poor weather in general. Its been some crazy weather this year. John Lepari was the pool winner with a modest 2.5 pound fluke.
Friday's trip 5/25 was lights out fishing to start the 2018 Fluke season. The boat landed 32 keepers for the day and over 120 shorts. Ken took the Pool with a solid 3.5 pound flatty.
Friday Magic Hours - Shorts were plentiful but keeps were tough to come by. We managed 3 and enjoyed a awesome night on the water.
Saturdays open boat trip 5/26 - We had a nice crowd of familiar faces along with some new ones. The weather was hot unlike the fishing. We jumped around and scarped together about 10 keeps and 80 shorts. There was a lot of pressure on the local grounds. Pool winner 7.1 lbs.
Saturday magic Hours - slow fishing continued and we were only able to find shorts. Some of the young kids aboard had a blast catches the wee ones.
Monday Memorial Day - Tough fishing all around - we explored some new grounds with poor results, the day was save by a late day change go tide bite.
Richie L from Edison took the pool on the next to last drift.
