11/16...  Well we finally closed on the NEW Reel Class - a classic 35' Henriques Maine Coaster.  This boat is TRULY a beast, and is a PERFECT 6 pack charter boat with all the amenities you could possibly want for doing the type of fishing that we do here in NJ.  Myself and webmaster Rod will be posting more pics of the new boat as well as specs for everyone to see - there are some posted right now in our photo gallery but there are many more coming :)

Fishing Report.  We've been out 3 times in the last 7 days. 

Last Saturday (11/10) we ran our charter on Capt Dan's Megan Beth (because we were still working on the sale of the albermarle and the acquisition of the Henriques) -- fishing was HORRIBLE.  Not one bite nor a knockdown on the troll all day long.  Worst day we've had in quite a while!!

Yesterday, (11/15) Kenny and I ran the Henriques up from Barnegat Inlet - found loads of boats and plenty of bunker but few fish.

Today, 11/16, was our first REAL trip with the new boat and we did a half-morning trip with Larry, Fred, BIll and Ryan.  Left early, got back early.  LOADS of bunkers, LOADS of boats.  Ryan got our first bass on the new boat, a 24" that inhaled a whole bunker, and Fred got a nice 19#er and Bill got one around 17#.  Very nice morning, fishing was a bit slow but it was great shaking down the new boat!!!! 

**We will be running a trip next Saturday, 11/22!*** 


Saturday 11/22 Bass - End of Season Coming Soon PDF Print E-mail

Saturday 11/22:  Ran a full 6 man open boat trip today on the new boat. Having a full crew of 6 really is a difference in terms of fishing and personal space on that bigger boat as compared to the Albemarle Ran down the line as per some intel we had and put the spoons out. Got one fish about 15 minutes in by TJ (his first bass ever) which was ~20#. Trolling after that really dried up for us but the birds came up and we put the jigs and shads on.

Had immediate action on AVA's and white shads, actually the first fish boated was a 30" keeper by Ryan. We did have several shorts, but the guys occasionally boated a keeper here and there.  One drift we banged 5, right in a row - all nice fish over 32" - but as soon as that came that dried up, so we went into search mode.

Ran down off IBSP and got a few more shorts on the jigs, but that was it. We then put out the trolling gear again and got one more nice fish by Vern (the wire on this fish broke, and we had to hand line it in - and it's time for me to rewire the rods!) - another nice fish ~15#.

Tried trolling/jigging a little more, but once that S wind really got cranking things were done for us. On one of the last drops we heard of a few fish caught on bucktails - so Ryan got a weird but familiar bite in on the beach on one of Larry's bucktails and lo and behold, he had a nice fluke (24.5"!) - we slipped the net under the fish snapped a few pics and released it. Fish was ~5# (the pic below doesn't do it justice).

Finished the day with 8 bass in the box to 20#, and 1 bluefish. We also had ~2 dozen shorts and the fluke that went back unharmed. Ryan was the start of the show with 12 bass on the jig, 3 of them being keepers, + the fluke. Real good day with a great crew - 4 new guys were great gentlemen! Thanks for coming down guys, enjoy the fish!!!

*On another note - Saturday's trip was most likely our last of the season - Clark's is shutting down (fuel pumps will be off after T-Giving and the ship store will be closed) so we will have to pull the plug... Boat will be going to its winter home the first weekend of December*
