We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Striped bass fishing has been outstanding for us this past week.
Monday 11/25, We found an epic bite as I had new clients Chris and his 11 yr old son Ryan from Pequannock, NJ along with their friend Bryan out for a 6hr striped bass trip. The first couple of hours started off as we did not mark any bait or fish and were worried about yesterday’s wind messing things up. We made a small move close to where we’ve had good fishing and before we knew it, it was game on with doubles and even a triple! It became very hard to keep the rods in the water. The crew ended up going 14/14 on striped bass from 24”-39”, keeping our 5 man limit of slot fish as well as fish from 28-39”. The rest of the fish were released safely. Everyone caught their first striped bass today too! Great job today guys we look forward to fishing with you again next year!
Tuesday 11/26, The epic bite continued for us! We had Mike, his son Justin, Chris, and Frank out for a 6hr striped bass trip. The bait, whales, and fish were right where we left them yesterday and we had our first bites within minutes. We had a couple double headers as well as a quadruple header today! We ended the day going 16/18 on nice healthy fish from 24”-36”. We kept our 6 man limit of slot fish and unders from 28-36”, releasing the rest for another day.
Wednesday 11/27, And just when we thought the fishing could not get any better, this morning proved us wrong yet again. With a small weather window before the blow, I had Rick from Philadelphia, PA along with his father Rick and brother Alex visiting from Galveston, TX for the holidays out on a striped bass trip. The ocean was flat calm but we knew we didn’t have much time to fish before the weather would change. Within seconds of fishing, we had our first keeper in the box. After that, it was an outstanding bite with double headers almost every time and even a triple header! In just over 2 hours of fishing, the crew went 22/24, keeping our 5 man limit of slot fish and unders to 34” and releasing the rest to fight another day. With a box full of fish we ended the trip early and headed home to beat the weather. Great job today guys, we look forward to fishing with you again!
Saturday 11/30, We ended the last day of November with another outstanding trip. I had Mike, Jay, and Kevin from Forked River, NJ out for a 6hr striped bass trip as well as fishing the 3rd Annual Drumstick Cup Tournament. The forecast was way off and the conditions were very sporty with 4-6’ seas at 5 seconds. We toughed out the weather and made it to where we have had great fishing. The morning started off slow, but after some looking around we boxed our first slot fish. Shortly after, we doubled up on 25lb class fish 38-40”. From there on, we had a steady pick of nice bigger fish in the 34-40” range. We ended the trip with our limit, going 10/13 on bass from 26-40”. We also released fish up to 33”. The body of fish that we found today were much bigger than previous trips with not as many small fish mixed in. We also ended up taking 1st place in the Drumstick Cup with a 40” 25lb fish! Great job today guys!
