10/03/13 11:12 PM
How is the fishing going up there guys. The Barnegat inlet is still loaded with Blues
Picked up a few more today

07/19/13 10:24 AM
I decided to take Gathney's advise and forget every thing and go fishing. GREAT advise! Went out on the Capt. John out of Keport for the evening trip. Only $40.00.

I couldn't have asked for a better evening to go out fishing. The water was smooth as glass, a light breeze was blowing and kept us comfortable from the heat and humidy.

Bait fish were jumping inside the harbor and out in the bay.
Everyone was catching shorts, dogfish, skates, searobins and spider crabs.

I eneded up with five shorts and a few misses, two of them were almost keepers. Wayne caught a short, a few misses and ended up with a nice keeper that came in second place in the pool. Close but no money.

05/19/13 09:06 PM

04/27/13 01:34 AM

Old Orchard Light

Arthur Kill 10/18/12

Started out in the bay, but it turned nasty with strong wind, white caps and a very fast drift. Looked to find a sheltered area in the Kill and only caught one small blue. At least we didn't catch the skunk

10/23/12 01:49 PM
Raritan Bay 10/06/12

Fished the lighthouse and rock piles. Had no hits the drift was to fast and the wind was kicking up some white caps. Before going back to the marina I tied off on a pile in a sheltered area and chummed the water with some old homemade chum. Wayne had a real hard strike from either a blue or striper, but was unable to set the hook. He was using live spot for bait. I in the mean time caught one spot after another until I ran out of bait. Ended up with (45) spot, which will be used for stripe bait. It's been nice to go out and finally catch something.

when fishing and crabbing in cheesequake creek caught one legal size crab and no fish

08/23/12 08:55 AM
Raritan Bay 08/19/12

I went to check my crab pots on Sunday with Wayne, Jetty, Andrew and Rob. Went to pull up the first crab pot and found that some low life, dirt bag stole the crab pot. I even had a short dark colored line and a small dark float on it, so it won’t be easy to find. Anyway only (2) legal size crabs. We fished for awhile after checking the pots and not even one bite. The only good thing about this trip was getting out on the water, the cooler air temperature and calm, smooth water. Andrew did actually catch something on this trip, but it was just a piece of drift wood. He threw it back, because it was short. Lol

Raritan bay 08/12/12

Waiting for train bridge to open, so we threw the cast net and caught 210 peanut bunker and short striper.

In the bay Wayne caught a short striper and 2 large bunker.

Jetty caught 2 blues

08/11/12 01:59 AM
Raritan Bay 07/21/12

A nice day on the water with Wayne & Jetty.
Caught (3) shorts - Nothing to write home about or worth taking pictures.

08/11/12 01:58 AM
Raritan Bay 07/13/12

Fished with Wayne and Jetty. We had real good sized killies (5") and peanut bunker. Caught a small blue on the peanut bunker and another one on a stretch 25. Its nice to be fishing again!

08/11/12 01:58 AM
Raritan Bay 07/11/12

The boat is back! The official test ride proved to have no problems!

I fished with Wayne at Great Beds for a short time, before going back to the slip to complete the testing of the boat a low speeds and backing into the slip. The boat passed with NO problems!

Caught (1) Bluefish using a Killie & Gulp combo. This will make prime crab bait.

Had a real good hit on a Peanut bunker and gulp combo, but it only stole the bunker and got away.

All in all the evening on the water was great, the boat ran great and we caught fish. It can't get any better than that.
