Saturday 7/14 – I was out for a 6hr ocean fluke charter. We worked several wrecks in 70-80’ of water. Since we were drifting over 1.0kts most of the day, we had to grind it out by making very short drifts. The group managed to pick up 40 fluke, 5 being keepers, as well as 3 nice sea bass for the table. It was a nice day on the water and we were back at dock by time the wind started to blow up.
Fluke fishing in the ocean is picking back up now that the ground swell from the storm is laying down. I only expect the fishing to keep getting better from now on as we get deeper into the season.

Sorry for the late report…
After some last minute planning and an iffy weather forecast we headed out on our buddy boat to spend our 4th of July at the edge. With a very promising big eye report we headed to some new waters and were up on the troll an hour before first light. Within the first hour we had our first fish on the boat. We kept moving trying to find the temperature break that we were looking for. Once we found the right water with only 2 other boats in site, the bite was on and we had 3 double headers of yellowfin up to 80lbs. We never found the big eye bite that we were looking for but we ended the trip going 7/8 on yellowfin. Excellent way to spend the holiday and the weather was perfect.
We are sailing every weekend for fluke and sea bass now. When the weather permits we will also be running offshore to get in on the tuna bite but we need to keep a very close eye on the weather. Fluke fishing is picking up on the wrecks as well as some quality sea bass being caught. Call now to book a date. Capt. Mike Villanova (609)-709-7264
