Saturday 8/17 – I had Brian, his wife AnnMarie, and daughter Courtney from Columbus, NJ out for a 5hr ocean fluke trip. We worked several wrecks and pieces of structure and found a ton of life everywhere with fish feeding at every spot. The trio lost count but caught well over 30 short fluke that were all in the 17” range. We had to weave through the aggressive shorts that kept biting but were able to pick up 3 nice keepers in the 20-22” range and well as a very nice 3lb sea bass to add to the mix. They did a great job jigging, catching at least 5 shorts each drift. We also caught a first for me today which was a fluke who had its eyes and mouth on the same side as that of a winter flounder. Great job today and we look forward to having you guys back out in the fall for striped bass!￼￼￼￼
Sunday 8/18 – I had David and his 8yr old son Desi from Manhattan, NY out for a 5hr fluke trip. We started working the same areas as the day prior but could not find the same life and action which I believe was due to a decent size ground swell out there that we did not have the day before. The drift conditions were very poor so we had to work extra hard to catch some fish. This was their first time jigging for fluke and they managed to catch 25 shorts as well as 3 keepers, 19-21”, to take home for dinner. Desi really wanted to see a cutlassfish and we ended up catching one midway through the trip. He is a very smart kid and all he wanted to do was learn everything that he could while he was out there. He enjoyed measuring every single fish and helped to tie the boat up as well. He watched me tie up one cleat then was able to do the other one all by himself with no questions asked. He has a great fishing career ahead of him and we hope to be able to get you guys on some striped bass in the fall!
This coming week, I have Sunday 8/25 still available for charter. We are getting in to our peak fluke season and I only expect fishing to keep getting better until the end of the season. If you are interested in getting out please give us a call to book your trip. Call or text Captain Mike to get out on the water or send us a message through our website! (609)-709-7264
