    At least go with live shrimp........ under a "popping cork" for trout.... or on a jighead bounced along the bottom for redfish

    If those big blues are around, just go with a silver spoon with a short light wire / heavy mono leader..... I know guys that lost lots of lures last week :D

    was supposed to head offshore but the forecast changed, so no bluewater fishing for me today..... back to spreading drywall mud (had to fire the drywall guy on friday, so I guess I'm finishing it myself :confused:)

    C, 50ยบ this time of year is warm for you guys.... go get um. Stripers should be in soon

    Looks like the new Fluke regulations are in and its not pretty... 3 @ 18" limit. Unless you're not fishing on a head boat, it makes no sense to go for Fluke for the time being. NJ fought the good fight but won a small victory in that the Feds wanted to 3@19" which effectively targets breeding females and works against the effort to breed more fish.

    Going this Saturday for Sea Bass as the season starts Friday, 26 May. Short season so you might wanna get out there. Big Stripers and Blues also on the rampage. Great time to get out there and dip a line!

    Fish On!!

    Put 19 Seabass in the boat on Saturday! Already filleted, vacuum sealed and iced. Looking good for the short season. Fluke fishing won't ever be the same again. Not sure how the head boats are gonna deal with this. Cost of diesel must have went up as all boats increased fares to $70 per person.

    Fish On!!

    Sea Bass season is over for now so the summer fishing season has begun. Stripers, Blues, Fluke, Cod, Ling, etc are all in season so soon as the weather stabilizes a bit more, Time to get out there. Prices have gone up on the head boats so that's a consideration. I'll be doing more freshwater fishing this year too. Taking the boat out this Sunday for the first time in a long time to a nice lake locally for some Crappie and Bass action hopefully.

    Fish On!

    It's the middle of the summer bite. Blues are far off shore, Stripers are far north and the Fluke season is in full swing. 3 @ 18" for Fluke, 2@12.5" for Seabass. Ling, Cod (21") and Pollock are also options for the summer Fishermen. Hope some of you are getting out on weekends and enjoying some of this great weather and summer action.

    Fish On!!

    Giant Trevally. Known as Ulua out here.

    Nice catch stanky! I have a lure that looks very similar to that one. What's your rig?

    Actually, it's not an Ulua....African Pompano. Look very similar, esp the bigger ones. I actually googled images of each to compare for curiousity sakes. (Younger pomps have these long streamers off their fins, that I guess wear off with time)
    They still fight like a champ like an Ulua, but dont get as big

    yep, 3oz Spro bucktail (that was unfortunately broke off by a big cuda on the next cast :( ..... lost 2 more yesterday in similar fashion). Same lure I caught that big Snapper last spring

    Shimano Baitrunner 8000 on Shimano Trevala 7' rod..... 50# spiderwirebraid, 80# leader

    Went offshore St. Aug with a buddy on sunday, and we were striking out all over the place, until we moved out further

    Thought I saw a Cobia come under the boat as we were pulling up to spot, so I grabbed my new baitrunner that already had a jig on.

    Hooked up pretty quick near the bottom in 100' and the drag started burning..... I thought it was a BIG cobia

    After a pretty long battle (got him to the surface 3 times and he ran back down each time, using his head as leverage), I got a nice surprise. My first African Pompano. I was stoked on what was otherwise a slow day..... Unfortunately we got covered up in BIG cudas shortly after... and that was that...

    You two guys (Hayn and Stinky) are the luckiest guys I know! Living in near perfect fishing condition for the majority of the year, relatively clean blue water and perhaps the largest variety of fish that can be found anywhere on earth!

    :D
