I had the Jon Yenari charter out on a back bay combo trip. Jon is an accomplished fly fisherman from Sarasota, FL , and he had his family out for a 4hr Barnegat Bay blast (wife - Karen and daughters Lauren (12), and Sage (10). The girls did a wonderful job on the trip and obviously Jon and Karen have taught them well. The girls baited their own hooks, caught'em, and threw them in the box. Unfortunately, only the short fluke were cooperating as we worked a variety of areas around the inlet for 3 hours. It was then time for a switch for some Barnegat Bay blowfish, with the Florida team boxing close to 50 in an hour with most of the puffers around 7-8 inches. With a late cancellation, I had the opportunity to take my son with me on a offshore fluking trip - Luke and I ended the morning trip boxing 7 keepers to 5lbs. Luke got to reel some of these deepwater fluke up. Whether it's charters or having my family out on fishing trips - words can't describe the smile on a child's face catching a fish. Maybe it's the reason we, as anglers enjoy fishing so much - it brings us all back to the moment of our first fish. Still remember catching sunnies with dad at 5yrs old.
I only have 2 trips booked next week, which leaves some days available for charters. I highly recommend ocean fluking trips, as alot of the fluke have started their annual migration out of our coastal bays/inlets into deeper water. If the weather holds, we will also might have trips available for bonita, bluefin via high-speed trolling.
If interested, give me a ring (609)-290-7709 or book through the website (www.reelreactioncharters.com) - the website goes directly to my phone. As on all of our charters, we only use the highest quality tackle, and everything is provided: Spro bucktails, S&S bucktails, Gulp, bait, ice, etc.
