Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters – Big Bass have arrived!!

As predicted the Westerlies delivered on the promise of “West is Best” with bigger bass making the mix to the already abundant big slammer bluefish!
Anglers aboard the Reel Fantasea scored Bass into the mid 30lbs range while employing Maja #4 Green spoons. Scaling down to the lighter spinning tackle utilizing various artificial baits continued to keep the rods bending with big slammers blues.
The week ended with the weather taking a steep tailspin with high winds and torrential rain but the wind has come back around the dial to the more favorable NW which should play well again into this up and coming week’s fishing. [finger’s crossed]
Looking forward to this week with the weather and the month of May continuing it’s progression!!!

Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters – Another Epic Week Of Fishing Barnegat Bay!!

 

Another Epic week of Light Tackle action found all in the safe confines of Barnegat Bay continued to entertain anglers aboard the Reel Fantasea this week! Some Trips returned early from just plain old fatigue with sore arms and backs from “The Catchin”!!

Even after torrential rains and high winds that turned the bay into a giant fresh water run off catch basin and stained the clarity muddy brown we found the action right where we left off RED HOT!!

Big Burly blues well into the teens have continued to keep our anglers rods down and tight and drags screaming with little rest between bites. Striped bass have also spiced the catches for some of our savvy anglers as well to keep things interesting.

I’m looking with great anticipation to this week with weather looking a bit more timid with westerlies forecasted and a waxing moon. I think the bass action is going to blow wide open along our coast!!  

I have a few Happy Hour Specials available this which are running 530-830pm for either open or private charter . Incoming and outgoing tides have scored heavily including the dreaded slack !

Please join us on Face Book and Like and share our daily reports.

Wishing everyone fair winds and calm seas,

Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters – Barnegat Bay Fishing “Assault” Report! 4/30/2017

Big burly brute slammers continue their unabated assault on Barnegat Bay !

Barnegat Bay continues to offer up some of the most bountiful big slammer blue fish action to the delight of drag screaming worshipers and local [ wink , wink FishHQ] tackle shop everywhere!

All trips this week saw fast out of the gate action that continued through even slack tides which eventually led to angler arm exhaustion well before trips end! Doubles, triples, and quads hook ups were the norm for all trips all week long!

The most reliable has been chunking cut baits but poppers have scored well for those seeking explosive visual surface strike!

Want rod bending, drag screaming, visual strikes? Don’t delay and jump aboard the Reel Fantasea sailing out of historic Barnegat light’s 18th street aka Viking Village.

I have this Friday afternoon [ May 5th] 3-8pm available for open or private charter for any light tackle enthusiast looking for an afternoon of fun!

Wishing everyone fair winds and calm seas,

Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters – Barnegat Bay Fishing Report 4/23/17

Early Last week fishing wasn’t as easy as it has been , Blue fish were found to be elusive on some trips while others seemed abundant. Both Chunking and poppers scored the blues but not without patience and persistence. But by weeks end we found the blues responding to surface poppers making for some fantastic visual strikes!
Even what has been the most reliable action with schoolie stripers was not without it’s struggles, although we did score them on all trips . On a higher note
Cy Collins score the first keeper striped bass of the 2017 season.
The action should start to solidify more this week as we progress into the last throes of April into May.
I have a few afternoons 4pm -8pm specials available this week [ tide matches up nicely]  and both Friday morning [7am-11am]  and afternoon [2-7pm] available for either Open or Private Charter.
Wishing everyone fair winds and calm seas,

Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters – The last 2 trips were a struggle but it’s just a “matter of tide”before we’re back on’em!

The early week “Spring break special” were anything but special with the big bluefish seemingly elusive. Although Schoolie stripers continue o provide light tackle action when targeted. This time of year things progress literally in a tide change !!

I have a few spots open for tomorrow afternoon 2pm -7pm , we will be targeting stripers, blues, tog [weather permitting] ….. while utilizing various techniques and locations. All bait, tackle ,rods, …….. included $125.00pp.

My new location for the 2017 fishing season is even closer to the action, located now in historic Barnegat Light 18th street aka Viking Village .  This new location inevitably translates into more fishing time for anglers aboard the Reel Fantasea!!

C’mon jump aboard and join other light tackle enthusiast!
