The Fall sea bass season opener is here and the weather has not been cooperative at all through this past Columbus Day weekend. At the end of fluke season with a couple weeks of down time, we worked on the boat and installed a Rhodan 96” trolling motor with spot lock for wreck fishing. Although the weather has not allowed us to use it as much as we’d like, when we did get to use it, it was a total game changer!
Friday 10/9 was the only wreck fishing trip that we were able to squeeze in this weekend with the weather. We had return clients Mike and Will out for their 7th trip of the season with us. We hit the first wreck and they had no problem boating their limit of sea bass along with a dozen real nice porgies, 3 big trigger fish, as well as a couple bluefish. Towards the end of the trip, we switched gears to target tog much closer to home and they quickly put a limit of tog on the boat while releasing many more before calling it a quits. Great day on the water and an awesome mixed bag of fish to go home with!
We have also been able to get out for some evening striped bass trips when conditions have allowed. There are plenty of local striped bass around that are tons of fun on light tackle poppers and plugs. The Oceanside should also be heating up later in the month with striped bass once the water temps fall a few more degrees as there is plenty of bait around for them to feed on.
We have some weekday dates available in October for wreck fishing as well as limited dates available in November for striped bass and tog, but they are filling quick! If you are interested in getting out please contact us 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
