This was a barely planned trip that a friend and I did after work one day and it must of been Payday.
Around 10:30pm we fished off the Fenwick lighthouse jetty during an outgoing tide. We had some live eels and some fresh menhaden with us. The wind was really screaming across the mouth of the river, over the breakwall and breachway. We threw some chunks of menhaden over the leeward side of the jetty. We started slinging eels, but within 5 minutes we landed a 40" bass with the menhaden. We began again, same way, and couldn't get the eels into the wind. That didn't matter because after 5 more minutes we landed a second 40" bass! We let the eel rods rest and focused on beer and bunker. After some time we landed just about the largest skate I've ever had the displeasure of holding (can't find the pic, but I will!) and then another. This one was big, but not as big. They where both males and strong as hell. One tore my finger up good; my friend needed to use the needle nose to pry the jaws open to get my finger out. Would you believe we finished the night with one more 40" striper and a small skate? We did. Three 40" bass and 3 skate in 90 minutes.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
