FISHING REPORT 9/12

A beautiful morning,dead calm ,overcast skies perfect for finding a bass but I found NONE,looked for weakfish found Bluefish,Switch to fluke and found 3 including a 19 and 20″ er . Decided to look for spot and managed to put a dozen in my pen for bass if they ever show up
But can;t complain as it was a perfect day to be on the water.

Fishing Report 9/11

Today is a solemn day in my fishing history. 9/11 2001 I had an AM radio on board for first time and while fishing Corsons Inlet that morning it was tuned to WOND when the news started . I was catching fluke and kingfish but stopped in shock. For past 16 years I have gone back to same spot every 9/11 same time and remembered that horrible day with a few minutes of silence as I sat idle in water . Today it was bright and sunny just like that horrible day.. The bad news is that very spot today no longer holds fish due to beach replenishment sand getting pushed inside the inlet choking what use to be prime fishing area
I wasn’t in the best of moods as I left area looking for a bass but all I found was a few Bluefish 14-19″ Decided to call it a morning but made one stop for Spot and only found Sea bass’
Tomorrow will be a better day

Fishing Report 9/7

I have never liked Sept fishing, Left dock at 545 looking for weakfish ,found none,switched to bass and found none, went looking for out of season fluke and found 2 (1-19″ amd 1-16″) Decided to look for Spots for my bait pen and found 2 . Wind kicking up and called it a day
Did I tell you I don’t like Sept fishing . Lots of bass at my dock under light but not real interested. Once water temp gets under 70 hings may pick up assuming that damn storm doesn’t come up the coast

MARINE COUNCIL MEETING

NJ MARINE COUNCIL will be meeting on Thursday -TOMORROW at 4pm in Manahawkin.
I suspect it will be a HOT and INTERESTING MEETING with SEA BASS the main topic for 2017 and Fluke for 2018
I suspect it will be a full house AND IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN NJ RECREATIONAL FISHING REGULATIONS AND HAVE THE TIME YOU SHOULD ATTEND
I know I will hear from those who don’t think our opinions matter BUT as one who has been attending for over 15 years I know we can make a difference and Council will listen
SO if you care about NJ recreational fishing think about attending

No fishing

Went to the boat this morning “thinking” I might fish,took cover off boat,got rods out and down comes rain for about 10 minutes than sun came out. Well put cover back on as now I’m wet ,cleaned up boat a little ,organized some tackle and came home
Maybe tomorrow but watching the storm closely,hopefully we will be spared

Fishing Report 9/5

LEFT dock this morning before daybreak looking for a weakfish. After working my area with nothing but little bluefish tearing up my baits I decided to try a new area and as soon as I left Ted got a weakfish
Wind coming up strong out of SW making it very difficult to get a decent drift or slow troll
Tide started out and wind got stronger so headed back to barn making one stop thinking there may be some Spots willing to bite. However once again wind would not let me get into good locations .Did manage one Spot in-between the damn little sea bass. Called it a morning and not in a good mood
