I hope everybody has enjoyed a very mild winter for our region which should translate into some early Striped Bass action. I’m putting some finishing touches on the vessel for the 2017 season and will have it serviced over the next couple weeks so that it’s ready for an early splash. It’s tentatively looking mid to end of March. Fluke season is up in the air as we are waiting to see if the state of NJ will comply or not comply with federal recommendations/mandates. It looks as it will either be 18in or 19in minimum, but would could really stink is a reduced season in terms of days. Regardless, I’m still prepping the light-tackle Fluke gear for some of the fantastic backbay action in that occurs every May & June. I have made several upgrades over the winter season, including a bunch of brand new Penn Spinfisher V 4500s added to our arsenal. Fisherman’s HQ has them in stock – great reels for the price!!
The Atlantic City Boat show starts next week (March 1 through March 5) and I will be presenting a 1 hour seminar on Striped Bass fishing on March 3, 2017 at 4pm, so hope to see some of you there.
We are only a few months away from the arrival of our migratory Striped Bass, and I already have a couple dates booked in May. If interested in booking a charter, book through the website (www.reelreactioncharters.com), or call/text 609-290-7709 . As always, we use the highest quality gear and everything is included all gear, tackle, fish-cleaning, and ICE – it’s “no worries” fishing. Just come aboard and FISH.
