With school starting, I will mostly run trips on the weekends with a few afternoons mixed in. Afternoon trips will focus on working inlets and some of the backbay areas for bluefish, weakfish, etc.
I have been hitting the bay hard and earlier in the week I had my son out for some backbay action afterschool. We boated a variety of species including: spot, sea bass, croakers, and weakfish. Our pens are filling up in preparation for the striped bass run - I still have some October and November dates available.
Later in the week, I had the Duralek charter (Tom Sr. and Tom Jr.) of Toms River, NJ on a 5HR Ocean Fluking bonanza with beautiful sea conditions. I had the father and son team working S&S Rattletail jigs tipped with combinations of Gulp and strip baits. The team ended with 10 keepers to 7lbs, with Tom Jr. topping has father's 25in 6lb with a 26in 7lb whopper. Some of the choice spots are holding some real quality fish right now.
