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

(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.

5/3 Update - Shakedown and Local Fishing

It's hard to believe I'm writing my FIRST report of the season on May 3rd, but that's what it is after this brutal winter.  We put the boat in last week (4/28) and brought her right up to Clark's.

Today's trip (Saturday 5/3) for all intents and purposes was a shakedown but we went out looking to kill some fish - so few guys have been trying ocean-side I figured we'd do some recon and try to be the ones to make that first good report of ocean caught fish in our neighborhood. Ocean was gorgeous, flat calm but water temps were 46-48* and there was loads of debris in the water -- water was generally clean.

We wound up running up the line and found some very scattered bait readings in the deep, near the line, and put out the trolling gear... We made our way up to SRI/Asbury area but for the entire stretch, we didn't even get a single touch on the rigs/spoons/plugs. We did this for a portion of the morning before calling it quits.

Needless to say things are VERY slow in our area, however a few warm sunny days will get that ocean temp up, the bait more concentrated, and hopefully the bass into town. Better days are ahead!

***Our FIRST open boat trip will be Saturday 5/10 - the open boat page has all upcoming open boat dates listed!  For the most part, the rest of the spring's weekends are booked, but we will be sailing a few open boat trips prior to July 4th weekend.***

Just a quick update after our never-ending winter...

We're hoping to be back in the water by Mid-April.  Right now we've been able to do just a little maintenance because of the weather, and hope to get ahead of the game by next weekend.  

We will be fishing for whatever is available when we start - be it bass, tog, ling & cod, flounder - SOMETHING - just to get the rods bent after this horrendously cold and snowy winter!

As an FYI - We are also accepting PayPal now!!  

We've also refreshed some pics on the front page, thanks to Rod at NJ Outdoors Media, and have some new pics up throughout the site. 

For those of you I saw at the Point Pleasant Fisherman's flea market a few weeks back with Larry of "Hooked on Bucktails" - it was good seeing you guys!!!  (The link to Larry's bucktails is on our sponsor page) 

Next update when we are getting close to splashing, until then, stay warm and think spring!!!
