Fish Head - Toggin Thursday - Patience paid!!

Had Chris, Jon G, Pete and Mike"Shore Thing" out toggin. No doubt it was a brutal day!! No bite, poor conditions and FREEZZING cold. By 10am all we wanted to do was go to Kelly's!! By 1:00pm we only had 4 fish in the box. Made 4 moves with nothing to show. Had to make a drastic move and the 5th drop paid off!! By 4PM we had our limit of all quality fish. Few 6s and 8s. Pete won the pool with a 10 and Chris popped his cod cherry. Patience paid off....and we got lucky of course on a tough day of fishing!!

Fish Head - Catch/Release Stripers


Tuesday had John, Tom and Ben from Cape Cod come down to experience some December Bass fishing Jersey style. Sporty conditions with a hard south wind but the fish cooperated. We had a hot bite for about 3 hrs off Sp. Lk until the tide changed then it was search mode and pick a few here and there. They played catch and release with over 30 bass mixed in size from shorts to some FATTYS. Shads and Jersey J's crocs made a difference!!

Fish Head - Saturday Blackfish trip

Had Dave Chris and Niel out today. Tough bite in the morning. By noon we only had a few in the box. Once the tide turned the bite got a little better. Mostly no measure keepers and a few in the 5-7lb range. Worked hard for them all day and put together a catch of 23 keepers just shy of our limit. A quick stop on the way in produced a few bass and blues.

Another great day on the water!!

Fish Head - Blackfish report

On Saturday we hosted the Rudy Bruno charter for an annual blackfish trip. The full moon has the the bite very picky. We managed over 25 fish although only about 8 of them were keepers. Very picky bite. Put in some extra time to see if the bite turned on with the tide change but...it didn't happen. Chased some birds on the way home and boated some bass and bluefish. Still had a blast but a tough day fishing!!
