Outstanding striped bass fishing this past weekend!
Wednesday 12/4 – We had a slow start with a very strong finish in OT. We had return client Chris along with his nephew Colin, as well as Rob and Rick out for a 6hr striped bass trip. Chris had high expectations after his outstanding trip last week, but what a crazy difference a couple days off made! We started in the same area we’ve been fishing. We had whales putting on a show, bait everywhere, and marked tons of fish that didn’t want to bite. After hours of only managing one 22” fish and not much time left, we picked up and made a move. We caught 3 fish right away, tagging one for a slot fish. In overtime mode, we put the boat on drift and instantly caught 15 bass on jigs, tagging one more for the table. The slow start turned into ending the day with 20 bass. Great job champing out the cold and fishing guys! Sorry we didn’t get more pictures because the ending was a blitz with everyone catching fish!
Saturday 12/7 – We had James, John, and Scott out for a striped bass charter. James won one of our giveaways for a free trip and after cancelling for weather, we were finally able to get him out today. We started where we jigged them a couple days ago but the weather was not in our favor and the fish were scattered. We set up on the troll to look for fish and instantly hooked up with a double header. The guys put a beating on the bass today catching 32, keeping our 5 slot fish up to 27” and releasing the rest. Great job in the cold weather and sloppy seas today guys!
Sunday 12/8 – Outstanding bass fishing with doubles and triples all day! We had Jim and his son James from Moorestown, NJ out for a 6hr striped bass trip. We started the morning off with a double header right away and got James his first ever striped bass! Within the first 30 minutes we had our limit of slot fish in the box. We played catch and release with many more. We made a moved to hunt for bigger fish and were rewarded with a 29” fish after weaving through some more slot fish. We ended the trip with an insane drop and reel jig bite. The father son team did awesome today, catching almost 40 bass. We sent them home with smiles and sore arms! Great job today guys!
We will be continuing to fish for striped bass as long as the bite remains good. We will also be throwing in a few blackfish trips as well up until the New Year, or as long as the weather will allow us to keep fishing. The upcoming weather forecast does not look promising this week but we will be back out whenever the weather allows. We have this coming Saturday 12/14 available, weather permitting. Now is the time to get in on the action while the bass are here in full force!
