NJ Fishing Reports

Sunday 5/18 AM  we had Jim's annual charter. Got bait early and got to the spot and set up. Blues immediately. Had 1 bass in the boat pretty quick. Lost a few other bass on pulled hooks and one lost in the anchor. Good day of blue fishing bad day of bass catching.

Saturday 5/17 we had Magdiels charter. Got bait and set up. The guys refused to use chunks on sinkers and got torn up by blues the entire day with live bait. Lotta action for them, just all blues. That's that. Never had a charter that did not cooperate.

Had regulars Bob, Bob, Dan and Rachel out 5/15 for bass. Left early in the fog and went and got bait. Riding to the spot the screen was LOADED with good readings. Stopped the boat and everyone was on. There's no way it's gonna be this easy today, NOPE! All blues. Played with them and then made a short move. Same thing. Another short move and finally started getting some bass bites. First one by Mr Foley was jumbo, 30lbs+. So we weeded through a bit and managed 4 very nice fish. The biggest fish we've seen so far here in raritan bay. After the slack tide it was dead. Nothing. Called it a day and beat the rain and wind! Cancelled our charter tomorrow....

Ran open 5/13 with ismellfishy, Paul, Chris, Ginny, Mike and Jim. Got bait first thing and threw the plugs out while we were looking. Got one pretty quick. Trolled a bit more but didn't like what I saw so we moved and set up on a drift withive baits. Didn't like that either. Went over to where we had em yesterday and put the baits back in. Couple window shoppers and ismellfishy's horrible horrible rig/whatever he calls it hooks a fish and after too long loses it. Mike got one like a pro. Jim let one run but couldn't hook up. Had enough of that and put the plugs back out. Rod goes off quick, ismellfishy lost that one too, thanks drew! Picked some more and lost a couple more. Wind against tide made it tough for us. They managed 6 good ones to around 20-25lbs.
