It’s been busy each weekend where we have been running 2 trips per day. We ran 4 charters over the Memorial Day weekend working the bay and inlet for Striped Bass, Bluefish, and Fluke. The bay Fluke trips had numbers close to the 20’s with up to 2 keepers boxed at 20 inches. Our bay and inlet Striped Bass and Bluefish trips have been catching cooperative Striped Bass to 24 inches and releasing Bluefish to 17 pounds on light tackle. Sea Bass fishing has been off the hook with our trips getting limits within the time frame and all bites have been on FHQ clams.
In our latest trip this past Tuesday, I had Jerald Gilbert and his wife Kerrie from Scranton, PA on a 6hr Bay/Inlet multi species trip. We started working the inlet area with bucktails tipped with white grubs and the duo released a bunch of Bluefish to 3 pounds. Jerry got into some action with the fly rod with a Deceiver fly. We move to another area and worked it with both fresh bait and artificials to release some Striped Bass and more Bluefish. We moved to the backwaters to release over 25 Fluke keeping 7 for table to 6 pounds. All of the keepers fell for the bucktails. We did find some structure around 9 feet that held some of the keepers – thanks to the Humminbird SOLIX. A great job by both anglers for working hard with heavy south winds and rain! #BarnegatBaySlam #MinnKotaNation
I have a few Sundays left in June, and after June 21st we run 7 days a week until the start of the school year after Labor Day when it’s back to weekday afternoons and weekends. If interested in booking a charter, book our site (reelreactioncharters.com) or call/text 609-290-7709. As always, we use the highest quality gear and everything is included: gear, tackle, fish-cleaning, and ICE! It’s “no worries” fishing. Just come aboard and FISH.
