For those who do not realize it we are striped bass fishing for now with the one keeper blackfish limit and the requests to go for stripers. Very small turnout for us but we went out and had a nice day fishing with a very calm ocean and good action on the stripers. Most were small but we did catch some bonus fish(24 - 28") to take home.. Everyone on board caught fish, all on jigs and shads but jigs worked better. No party boats up here sailed today Tues, but we will be back at it tomorrow, Weds. If you want to give stripers a shot and want some room on the boat then come on aboard. We are hopping some more keepers (over 28") show up and will play it by ear for our fish type schedule ie MAY switch back to blackfish for the weekend with boats running all over knocking down the fish. Here are a few fish pics and how nice the ocean was. Thanks for looking in.

First of all let me thank all the veterans who have served. It was the first nice day in a a couple of days with not too much wind. It was our first striped bass trip and we did manage to catch a few shorts and a slot fish( we have bonus tags for fish between 24 and 28"). The best of the action was in the morning and then it was a search and hope to find a few more that we did not. Sounds like everyone had a tough time after that. Back at it tomorrow morning so hope to see you then. Thanks for looking in.

None of our boats went out this morning with the forecast and tomorrow does not look good either with winds gusting to 40 mph. We will try again on Sunday but will be switching to striped bass for now since that seems to be the way to go with the turnout for it. If the striped bass fishing is good, which it hasn't been we will stay with it. If not then back to blackfish which open to 5 per man on the 16th of this month. Thanks for looking in and hope to see you soon. Don't be afraid to call if you are not sure what we are fishing for or about the weather conditions.

Today was one of the nicer days of the fall, a little cool but light winds and calm sea. Went back to where we have been fishing and picked away again but not as good as it has been. Made one other drop and caught some more. High hook and pool winner was Pat Lamb with 4 keepers that he took his limit out of. Not sailing tomorrow with the weather forecast and not sure about Saturday. If we go it will be for striped bass since it seems that is what the majority of the fishermen want and this one fish blackfish limit per person is not cutting it. Forgot the camera but thanks for looking in.

We went out with a small group, just enough to go out and only had to make one drop to pick away at the backfish. Mostly shorts but enough keepers for all to go home with one for dinner. Was thinking of switching to striped bass for the weekend but will wait to see how it goes. The bass boats did not do good today so will play it by ear. Tomorrow looks good weather wise but not going out on Friday. Thanks for looking in and here are a few pics.

I changed my mind about today and we will try to go out if enough fishermen show up. Green crabs and clam on the boat but clam has not been working with dogfish and no porgies around. Maybe see you later if not then tomorrow and Thursday look good. Thanks for looking in.

We did not even try today ( nobody else went out ) with the wind forecast and tomorrow does not look good either. I was on the fence about tomorrow but think it will not be nice with 5 ft seas and showers so we will punt and see you on Weds. Thanks for looking in.
