Last few days since weekend

There  has not been that much to say about the fishing the last few days since it remains the same. At times there is a decent pick of shorts with a odd keeper in the mix and other times its just an odd fish. The last few mornings have been better than the afternoons but yesterday Jenna Pizzamenti from Clifton caught a 5 lber on each of the last two drifts but Dave Loccisio took the pool with a 6 lber. Sue Mozdierz of Leonardo with her keeper the day before and also pictured are Tom Ahern of Denville and Richie O  of Jersey City. If your look for a day with a lot of room on the boat, pick one where the weatherman says chance of thunder storms like yesterday afternoon. We never had one and did not have a drop of rain. Here are the pics.

Weekend report

Cloudy cool weather  on Saturday with easterly winds made it feel like fall. Sunday the sun came out in the afternoon but was still on the cool side. Same fishing as we have had with some areas producing keepers with a few shorts and other areas quite a few shorts with only an occasional keeper. The afternoons were a little better with Pat Lamb taking the pool on a snapper. Sunday afternoon we stayed close but picked every drift with Rich Hammond of Hazlet taking the pool with his 7 lber. A few other nice ones were boated like John Frank's, shown in  green shirt,  with lots of short action. One angler told me he had over 20 shorts but no keepers. Here are a few pics.

7/18 Two that beat three of a kind

Some more big fish are coming up such as those caught by Paul Menge of Woodbridge. He not only caught the pool fish of 8 1/2 lbs but also one of 6 1/4 lbs and his son also caught a keeper.  Jonathan Harmon of Middletown boated a 5 1/4 lber and said he dropped a bigger one. We had decent short action  in a couple of spots so it was not a bad morning. The afternoon was not as productive despite the beautiful weather. Here are some pics from the morning trip.

7/17 another BIG one

Within a few minutes at fishing on the first drift,  Marty Horvath of Harrisburg PA nailed a 9 1/4 lb doormat that held up for the pool on the morning trip. We picked at the shorts and a few more keepers that drift before making another one.  Made another one there then  moved on to other areas when the drift slowed up. Nice day but again not a lot of  keepers for the group we had. We did  a little better in the afternoon despite wind against tide conditions where we wanted to fish.Dalton Carhart of town caught his pool fish on the second drift of the afternoon. He was out with his daughter, who also got one,  and his two sons. Here are the pics.

Mon to Weds 7/16

We had ok fishing as far as shorts on Monday morning but the keepers tough to find. Tyler Nicol  age 13 caught the first keeper with lots of cheers but Paul Hevaguilar  ended up the pool winner at the end of the morning.  We didn't make it out in the afternoon with not enough to go and did not get out on Tuesday either.  Wednesday morning we squeaked out with a few and had slow fishing, I guess the  T-storms and heavy rain on Tues afternoon did not help. On the afternoon trip we caught an immediate  nice keeper but then only some shorts with a rare keeper until the tide started going better. We ended the afternoon with a decent catch including Bob Coughlan's 8 3/4 lber. Barbara Mc Donald and husband Bill had a combined catch of 5 keepers with her catching 4, not bad for someone who rarely goes fishing. Here are the pics.
