The weather so far this fall has been very uncooperative. We have not been given many days to fish since Labor Day weekend. Let’s home the weather breaks as we enter into November!
Sunday 10/18 we were able to get one trip in. We had new client Sam and Kenny along with their sons Sam and Mike out for a wreck fishing trip. A day that was forecasted to be beautiful ended up being the complete opposite by the end of the trip. It was a tough pick for sea bass as we could not fish where we wanted to, but the jumbo porgies made up for it. We had to end the trip a little early due to deteriorating weather conditions, but the crew ended with a nice mixed bag of some quality sea bass, jumbo porgies, triggerfish, blackfish, and even a bonito. The Rhodan trolling motor worked awesome even in the rough conditions!
Thursday 10/22 was our next fishable day and we threw together a last minute wreck fishing trip with our friends Ryan and Keith. We got a late start but once we made it to the first wreck, the Rhodan trolling motor worked perfectly and we easily boxed our full boat limit of sea bass in under 2 hours. We also had a dozen big porgies up to over 3lbs as well as a triggerfish! We were greeted with pea soup fog on the way in, but great day on the water with some great friends as well as great weather!
Saturday 10/24 we had return clients Jay and Suzie along with their friends George and Matt out for a wreck fishing trip. As we made our way through the inlet in the morning, we were greeted by a huge ground swell along with an outgoing tide making passing through very sketchy. We ran back out to where we had a full boat limit 2 days prior, but the big swell definitely effected the fishing. We had to move around to a few wrecks to put together a decent catch. Every single wreck was also covered up with spiny dogfish which made it even harder to get down to the sea bass as the dogfish were hitting the baits on the way down. The crew fished hard all trip and ended with 2 dozen sea bass, a dozen nice size porgies, and a couple tog up to 5lbs. Great job fishing through the swell and spiny doggies, we’ll see you guys in a couple weeks for striped bass!
As we are coming up on November, we have Election Day, 11/3 available for a tog trip and possibly striped bass if the water temps drop a few more degrees. We only have a couple of dates left in November for striped bass and tog. December is also filling in for striped bass and tog so don’t wait to book! 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
