Fri Oct. 21 big striper

We decided to go out with just a few figuring the bite would be on after the last two windy and rough days. Well at first we were disappointed as I caught the first and only keeper on a dead stick. Made a couple of moves in the same area and after the tide change we got a little bite going. Denise Mendve of Sparta caught her first keeper striper and what a keeper at 45 inches and over 30 lbs. She ended up with 3 keepers including her bonus tag fish. John Mancini of Elizabeth, also caught his first striper after 25 years of fishing but it was a short. He did manage a keeper later on and everyone had a good time despite the cool wind and a little rolling around. Here are some pictures from today.

Monday Oct. 17 Stripers

Well we decided to switch to striped bass with the limitations on the bottom fish and to a 3/4 day schedule leaving at 7:30 am. With just a few anglers on board we had a steady pick on the fish once we got to the right spot. Bob Griffen of Watchung was high hook with 5 keepers and everyone went home with fish. We will be staying on the stripers till early Nov. Here are some pictures.

Upcoming Schedule Changes

We're approaching the time of year where we transition to our 3/4 day schedule. Starting Oct 17th, our weekday schedule (Mon - Fri) will change to one 3/4 day trip daily, 7:30 AM - 2:30 PM. Our weekend schedule may remain 1/2 day or may change to 3/4 day based upon the quality of the fishing. We will update you as soon as Captain Hal makes his decision.

bottom fishing up date 10/4

We have had some good days and some not so good days that were usually due to the strong new moon currents. For a few days we had very good fishing in the bay but it didnt last long. Unfortunatly the sea bass season is still closed to Nov. 1 so we have had to throw back some nice ones. We are still fishing relativly close about 40 min out between the channels and the crowds have been very light during the week so pick the nicer days and if you are coming in the morning try to get there by 7 : 30 am so if we dont have enough to go we can put you one another boat. We will be changing to 3/4 day on week days in a couple of weeks so call ahead. Will post some pictures tomorow. Thanks for checking in.
