We had a nice stretch of weather from late last week through the beginning of this week and we took advantage of it as we were out there fishing every day. Once this rain rolls through we will be back at it and hopefully pick up where we left off.
Friday 11/6 we had return client Chris and his son Ryan along with their friend Gary out for our first striped bass trip of the fall run. We took a shot in the dark and pea soup fog this morning and went out looking for some life. We ended up finding tons of life with gannets working and bass on top. We got our first fish before we were even able to set out the spread. After getting a few fish trolling, we switched to try and get them on top water. We threw everything possible at them but they had lockjaw and we’re very finicky. We jumped back on the troll and ended the trip going 5/8 with fish up to 40”. Great job today on our first trip guys and we will see you next year!
Saturday 11/7 was a rare day where Jess and myself were able to fish together for the first time this year due to a last minute cancellation and boy did they miss out. We caught over 20 fish up to 45”, keeping our 2 slot fish and bonus tag fish. We then switched it up and went tog fishing, catching close to 50 tog and keeping our limit of 2 up to 5lbs. On the way in we found fish boiling on top water and Jess was able to jig up some more fish before heading home for the day.
Sunday 11/8 We had Harrison and Taylor out for a striped bass trip as a belated birthday gift for Harrison. We have been trying to get them out since august but had bad weather forcing to reschedule 3 times. Today the weather was perfect and we had some great fishing in the morning. We found the bite early, starting the day off catching them 2 at a time. We ended the morning going 10/10 on bass up to 32”, keeping our 4 bonus tag fish and 2 slot fish. Great job today and happy belated birthday Harrison!
Monday 11/9 was another awesome morning in the books! We had new clients Steve, Scott, and Pete out for a striped bass trip. We started off in the same area that we’ve been fishing and were on the fish within minutes. We lost count today but we had to have caught around a dozen fish plus the countless knockdowns and some that pulled hooks behind the boat. We released 2 fish that were in the 32-35lb range according to the scale as well. We ended the trip keeping our boat limit of 5 slot fish plus 2 bonus fish that we tagged. Great day guys we look forward to seeing you again before the run is over!
Tuesday 11/10 we had Al and a friend who had to step aside from some pics due to work reasons (sick days are the best days) out for a striped bass trip. It was another epic bite as we had our boat limit of 4 slot fish and 4 bonus tag fish in just over an hour! They also released 5 more fish before the bite shut off pretty early. Awesome morning on the water!
