Thurs 8/21

     We headed out to where we have been catching some in the ocean but we only picked at them in the morning with just a few keepers and fair pick of shorts. Still a a swell from the easterly winds that may have affected the fishing. The afternoon trip was much better even though the drift was on the fast side. Good pick of shorts and a good amount of keepers with Roger Lee taking the pool on both trips and Johnathan Harmon limiting out with 5 keepers. Here are a few pics.

Tues - Weds 8/19 &20

     Tuesday morning headed out to where we caught them on Monday afternoon but had much different conditions with Easterly winds of 15  plus mph so it got a little rolly though it did help slow the drift down. Picked at some fish but not good so we headed back to the bay but not a good morning catch. In the afternoon we started in the bay till the current slowed down in the ocean since the wind and tide were together. Picked at some shorts and keepers and then headed outside to catch the end of tide and got a good shot of fish. John Mundjer with  a couple of beauties including the pool.  Weds  morning did the ame thing with less wind so we stayed in the ocean most of the morning although a couple of patrons were not up to the rocking. Lots of action with shorts and some keepers mixed in. Victor Arnao told me he caught 29 shorts and one keeper on the morning trip. In the afternoon we could not go back out there since it would have been too fast a drift so we made some long drifts and picked slowly but ended up ok with Victor catching the first keeper  of 6 3/4 lbs that held up for the pool. He also caught about ten more shorts and another keeper. Nick Ricciteloi was close with a  6 lber and also pictured is Carolyn Jacob of the Leisure Knoll fishing club  with a couple of  nice fish. Next couple of days we should have lighter crowds with the cloudy slight chance of a shower forecast but we will be going out. Here are some pics including a young man with his first ever fish.

Monday 8/18

    Nice weather and a nice group of fishermen and women made it an enjoyable morning. Picked at shorts and keepers mixed in with one group of 4 catching 5 keepers and some other singles ad doubles around the boat. Walter Riveley of Colonia took the pool with a 7 1/4 lber but being short handed we did not get his pic. On the afternoon trip we went around the hook for the first time in a long time and found a  batch of shorts and nice keepers. More action  and keepers then the morning with John Nelson taking the pool with his 6 1/2 lber. He and his wife Linda combined for 3 and a cow nose ray that she fought around the boat for ten minutes. Danny Wong  had 3 nice keepers to 6 lbs  plus a lot of shorts. Nice weather this week so hope to see you. Here are only a few pics as we got very busy.

Weekend report

    We had a very good turnout on Saturday morning and knew it would be quite a job to catch enough fish for  the crowd.  We did manage catch shorts and keepers despite (again) the wind against tide situation. For example John Doll caught 4 keepers for high hook and  and several others had one or two keepers and decent short action. The afternoon the opposite conditions with wind and tide together it got too fast but was still ok fishing. Sunday the same conditions but very few keepers in the morning but ending with a good afternoon bite as the conditions were favorable. In fact someone called in the morning to ask how the fishing was and I told him not good but should be better in the afternoon

, but they never showed up. Here are some pics.

Tues to Friday 8/15


After Monday's good fishing we had a storm that night with a lot of rain which knocked out the fishing until Friday morning.  Finally the fish started to cooperate and we picked away despite a slow wind against tide drift. Pat Lamb got the first keeper and another beauty later on. Karissa De Santis though, was high hook and pool winner with three nice fish. Other keepers and a decent pick of shorts around the boat made it sa nice morning. The afternoon the wind combined with the current to make the drift a little too fast. We did still catch fish better than we did Tues through Thurs. Hopefully the fishing will hold up now and hope to see you soon. Here are a few pics including a young lady who would have been the pool winner the other day had she been in it.
