12/4 - End of Season (Unfortunately!)

Tuesday 12/4/12:  Today I made a very tough decision and decided to call it quits on this season.  This fall and early winter has been the most disappointing part of a season I've ever experienced in this business as we only sailed 7 times since September :(  Hurricane Sandy and her aftermath had a lot to do with this, as did the other numerous HORRIBLE weather days we had on weekends since Labor Day. 

What complicates things on my end is that our home is in Ortley, right in the middle of "ground zero" from Sandy. Up until recently, we had no access to the house as residents were not allowed due to infrastructure issues; we finally got there for the first time 3 weeks ago to get started with clean-up.  We've been back since to continue and to get work done, but there's a lot to be done.  Although the interior of the house itself was unscathed (thank god!!), our crawl space, insulation, some electric, heat/ac duct work was all extremely compromised and was gutted this weekend.  We are in the process of getting it dried out, replacing the insulation and duct work, as well as the electric.  This is going to be a long road back for us, and we have to dedicate our time on this - priorities!!  We're hearing we should be in good shape sometime in January, as long as everything goes as planned with the work being done on the island.  We were very lucky, others were not. 

What makes this even tougher is that fishing is finally getting back to normal now, with some bass showing and the blackfish bite being generally pretty good.  Believe me, we'd love to be out there and we'd love to have you guys out there with us, but again, priorities win out here.

We of course will be back in the spring, and we will be shaping up for the spring arrival of our bass in April. 

11/25 Blackfish Report!

Sunday 11/25:  First day out in a couple of weeks because of, you guessed it, weather!  Saturday's charter was also cancelled because of the screaming NW wind.  But, finally, Sunday, we got out on our open boat trip.  On board w/ Kenny and I were Billy, bill, mike, jimmy, cubby and Kenny. Fished south in 50-70' depths- made 4 drops. Little wind early going hard west by 1030.

We had Ok action early w/ some keepers and loads of 14-14.999" shorts, but a keeper here and there was sprinkled in. Moved around looking for a bite, but never got more than a slow pick going.  We'd have a flurry of a few fish, then it'd just quickly shut off.  It was like that most of the day. 

For the day we had ~15 keepers (didn't get an exact #) with the biggest between 5-6# and another around 5#. Most of the rest of the boxers were over 16" with only a few being right on the mark. We also had at least 30 shorts for the day. Tough day, but still got some fish for the guys !
