FINALLY GOT LAUNCHED

Bucktail willie finally got in the water after a cold ,snowy,windy winter.
After getting all set up at my dock I headed out looking for a fish. concentrated on Bass and weakfish and found ONE short bass of 20″ but that was all she would give me
Hit several key spots and did not see any signs of life.I did not try for Flounder but may start on them next week
Water temp on tide of the tide was 48 and I suspect bottom of the tide would be much warmer and fluke bite may turn on
This is the latest I’ve launched as usually in first week of April but the weatherman would not cooperate
The area is coming alive as Laughing gulls are arriving,Osprey have been here and busy building nest. I saw a fox and a good size deer so my world is starting to come alive
I talked to a couple of guys fishing for Fluke but no one had any and I headed back to dock after 2 hours of looking to do so more work on setting up the boat
The 2014 season has officially begun
Anyone interested in Stripers there is an informational meeting Wed April 23rd in Manahawkin that will run from 7-9pm I expect to see a cutback of some sort on stripers in 2015 .IF you want to voice your opinion this is the place to be as NJ Chief biologist will be given a presentation and he will be listening to angers imput .
If anyone needs a ride let me know as I will be attending

HAPPY EASTER
