Thursday: We had some nice keepers yesterday with the return client Bob Reim charter picking up 8 nice keepers to 7 pounds (27.5 inches) in the morning. The crew worked the S&S Pink Shine Bigeye to produce the majority of the fish. The released approximately 40 shorts. The afternoon had some harder conditions and new client Mongon charter caught approximately 30 shorts keeping two for the table. We had wind against tide conditions, but the Minn Kota motor made the difference! #MInnKotaNation #Humminbird#SSBucktails
FRIDAY: Similar results for today's double. The morning crew with return client Steven Hartley of Philadelphia and his sons & nephew boxing 5 keepers to 22 inches. They released approximately 25 shorts and some small Sea Bass. The afternoon was much harder with different conditions as I had return client Judy Stiegler and her family. They worked very hard to release 20 short Fluke and box 2 keepers to 19.5 inches. They also caught Bluefish and some Blowfish that hit the Fluke rigs.
I had new client Jason Delia of North Jersey with his 14yr old son Garrett on a 5hr Ocean charter. We worked a wreck to box a quick limit of Sea Bass and then headed to the Fluke areas. It was a tough bite today as most of the Fluke were in the 16 to 17 inch range. We lost one real nice fish on the bucktail and that was our only opportunity. Garrett did a great job for his 1st ocean charter!!
