Fish are stacked in the channels close to the inlet and ready to move out. The ocean fluking has really started to turn on and we have been doing well with the fluke. Fishing structure has been successful for us. Big baits and gulp have been best.
Today I fished with my family and the boys killed it! 8 keeper fluke, a sea bass and cocktail blue. My 11 year old nephew Sean from Boston, MA led the way with a 24.5″ as well as catching his limit! Kids had a blast today!
Monday I had return clients Mark and Tara Harvey of Perkasie, Pa out with their son David for a sea bass/fluke trip. First, we worked a wreck and had 5 keeper sea bass along with many shorts. Mark added a nice 21″ fluke to the cooler to round out their catch.
Friday afternoon I had new client Jamie Dench of Scranton, PA out with his kids Luke (10) and Bella (5). Luke boxed a nice 18.5″ and lead the way with 10+ fish on our quick afternoon trip. Bella helped reel in a fish that just made 18″. The trio had many fish working the bay channels near the inlet.
Friday morning I had return client Mike Pinto from Ridley, PA with friends Dave, Anthony, and newcomer Barry. With the slowed bay bite, we moved to structure in the ocean. We caught 3 keeps in the ocean to 20.5″ along with a single sea bass. Mike added a 4th keep on a few quick bay drifts.
Thursday I had repeat charter Ed McGinnis of Princeton, NJ out with his wife Cheryl and sons Connor and Brock. We had to work a variety of areas in the bay to find feeding fish. We did manage 2 keepers at 18″ and 20.5″.
We have a few openings next week for bay or ocean fishing. All tackle, bait, ice, and fish cleaning provided. Call or email to book.
