Fishing in Barnegat Bay has been a little tough in terms of finding keepers - we have been upsizing the baits, but it is still a little tough. We ran 9 trips in 4 days, so I haven't had much time to update Facebook or the webpage. Most of our 4hr charters have been picking up 20 to 40 short Fluke and bringing home up to 3 fish. You don't get many chances at keepers, so it's imperative to do your best with the hooks on every bite. We did have one trip after the heavy rains that didn't catch any keeps. But we are back at it again today.
We will start running Ocean Fluke trips soon, but it is still very slow out there.
One of the notable catches the past few days was 12yr old Kathryn Viccaro's 7lb Fluke caught in 5 feet of water. She was out with her 10yr old sister, Mom, and 75yr old Grandmom and this was Kathryn's 1st time fishing. Awesome job!
