    For the tuna rig, I'm going with the AVET JX G2, Daiwa Proteus 76H, 65/60. Hopefully that will be enough to handle some midrange Tuna that might come my way..

    OK, you guys have officially replaced Key West on my bucket list!! Great catch man!! Hopefully a great meal too. Headed out next Saturday as the Blues and Stripers are in the mix off the Jersey Coast along with really big Fluke. Throw in Ling and a 2 fish limit on BSB's and Party Time!!.. :)

    HA, thanks... The Keys are pretty fun though, never been to Key West, but I've been to Marathon (alot mellower, but good fishing) , Islamorada & Key Largo a few times and had good times always. but I'm sure its alot cheaper up here. Come in May if you do. Best weather and best fishing, offshore and inshore ... It's been HOT AS F*CK the past 2 weeks so dont come in July. lol.

    My cousin got some nice fluke in the bay on friday... I think Stripers are heading North. Not sure when I'm coming up, maybe the new moon the end of the month, but the Mets will be out of town then :confused:

    I like when the guy fishing yelled, "Get the shark away from it!"

    What was his buddy supposed to do. Jump in and wrangle it?

    It's Not super fun trying to pull treble hooks out of a sharks mouth while sitting in a kayak a mile off the beach... If it wasnt a brand new Yo-zuri deep diver that I just pulled from the box I wouldve just cut it off

    Well, my summer fishing season resumes this Saturday with a full day bottom trip for Ling (unlimited) and Sea Bass (2). With Blues marauding, Fluke jumping clam baits and Stripers just hanging around, I'm looking forward to this trip as it will be a light tackle only for me. 100-300g SPJ gear and a ML bait rod and I should be good all day. Even talked Wifey into coming which of course means she'll kick my ass like she always does. #FillinDaBox

    As it turns out, it wasn't a bad day at all. Near perfect weather made a sporadic bite feel better. There has been a change for the worse as the Ling fishery is plummeting and nowhere near 2021 levels. A case of overharvesting as has already been seen in the waters with Weakfish, Blues, Porgys, Blackfish and several others. There's no size or bag limit on Ling and its finally taking its toll as Summer Flounder aka: Fluke now has an 18"min size limit along with a 3 fish bag count. More fisherman are turning to Ling and the population is starting to bend to the pressure.. All in all, We did put together a decent catch. [​IMG]

    Ling are a cousin to Cod and mostly a hot summer, muddy bottom fish. I think of them as Saltwater Catfish as they share the body type, live in the mud and have whiskers. They're gonna have to bring some kind of conservation program to the Ling fishery or they will simply be finished as a viable fishery. The commercial netters usually get their share of Fluke, Sea Bass and they also own the right politicians and the bigger their catch is, the smaller the real recreational catch becomes.
