Father's Day charter & Bass Pro Shops


I had new clients, Joe Antonelli and his son Marcus of Florida on a 4hr mixed species bay trip. We started working the backwaters with 20++ knot winds and wind against tide conditions. The Minn Kota trolling motor did a great job keeping us with the current, but the water was churned up and made for tough conditions. We only could put 7 shorts on the boat for the first 1.5 hours, and we made the change to fish for Striped Bass and Bluefish at the inlet. Rough conditions, but the father and son team managed a bunch of Striped Bass to 24 inches and Bluefish to 8 pounds on the 1 1/2 oz S&S Bigeye bucktail tipped with artificials. After the charter, I turned and burned to do a special event at Bass Pro Shops in Atlantic City. Happy Father's Day to all the fathers' out there!!
