Bass and blue fishing slowed after Friday's blow, but things rebounded a bit by Sunday as some fish were trolled. 

Our report: 

Saturday - Slow day with Jean's charter for bass and bluefish.  Had just a handful of bluefish but no bass - ran all the way to Raritan Bay... Overall very slow day!

Sunday - Had John Kuhles charter on today for a mixed bag.

Left early at first light, made bait south of our inlet, worked the pods, but had no takers. Bunkers looked nervous but NG.

Then ran offshore for cod/Pollock. Bounced around some different pieces till we finally found a few. Nice pick of mixed sized cod and nicer Pollock before the screaming SOUTH current halted our fishing. We also had a couple of 15" seabass that had to go back on the teasers Once the south current kicked in, we didn't have a single bite. All cod and Pollock were caught on ava's and stingo's ahead of twister teasers - no bait

Back inshore we went up on the troll for bass, but didn't have a knockdown. Overall a good day with a few nice Pollock in the box as well as some nice cod - not red hot fishing but had a couple every drift with shorts and keepers before it shut off. Biggest cod was ~15# and biggest Pollock was also ~15# - both taken by John!

5/12 Update - Bass & Bluefish Finally Here!!!!

Here's the 5/12 Report from Capt Kenny:

Last minute 3-man charter today - FINALLY got into some bass!!

Started early, ran up the beach at first light looking for bunker locally to no avail. We then ran way up, found some bait, and finally found loads of life, but no bunker to throw the net on or snag, so we wound up putting out the plugs and went up on the troll. Troll bite was crazy as bluefish were immediately all over the plugs and spoons, with a bass here and there mixed in.

Got a call from my buddy in a super-fast center console that he was in a sick bite on the beach, so off we went. As we approached 30' depths fish were blowing up so we broke out the poppers and storm shads and had wild fishing for almost an hour with the occasional bass and loads of bluefish.

Once that died, we went back up on the troll and finished off the limit with a few more bass. Most of the bass were 12-15#, biggest went ~25# taken by Rob. Great day, lots of clean releases on fish and the guys kept their limit for the grill tonight. The best part was hearing Allen complain all day that he wasn't on the boat. Priceless! hahaaa

-Capt Kenny

(PS with the bass in town now - we are now sailing DAILY!)

**Saturday 5/10's trip was cancelled due to weather - weather that never showed!!!  We didn't have a trip on Sunday, Mother's Day...**

In other news, while Capt Kenny was crushing the bass on the boat, Capt Allen found some time to hit the beach as bluefish finally invaded the area - basically Seaside to Lavalette was inundated with 3-15# bluefish -- all fish were taken on top water which led to some simply awesome fishing for lots of local guys who were dying all winter to get into something out front.  There were fish caught all the way up to the Manasquan Inlet and up into Spring Lake also.
