A trip on Pub 199 with Pete, Sean, and Dan got into some nice fish! We killed a very nice Mahi, a decent Yft and Dan landed a very nice Bft. amp got into very good fluking once again as we changed up locations due to the drift conditions.
Along with Greg and Chad were Eric and James. Weather forecast was super and the reports were solid. A fairly speedy right out there only to find the BFT waiting. The early morning bite was good as they ate the spread for the first few hours. The boats finally shut the bite down and we knew that once they left they would chew again. The early afternoon bite was very good with bigger fish as we could not get all the baits out. Thew guys did great fighting these fish. We had our nice size under and released the rest of these beautiful fish. What a great trip. Super crew too lots of fun and just little ball busting. Oh yeah, they all needed except for Greg, the vagina belt to land their fish!!!
Big Dan got into his final bass trip of the year and found super fishing for the bass. Bob Steady CENTAMORE, elected to go plugging for bass before the scheduled fluke trip. Once again it was super bass fishing and slow fluking. Paul Wilcox got off shore on the first shark trip this year and had decent action with various sharks and ended up on the bass before we got home.Last but not least, Mike H found very slow bass fishing on our last trip of the spring season.
A very stable weather pattern put the damper on some of the best fishing we have been having. We did have 2 of the best blitzes you can imagine, Zempe and Richy Splash got into those trips. John Pantano, Matt Stoltzfus, Paul Mulotta, got into very good action, Anthony Sick, Caesar, Don Eyerich had good to mediocre fishing.
All week long found the bass chewing somewhere from the harbor to Asbury Park. Big Dan, Pastor Reagans, Derek, Zempe boated his largest and the first 50lber of the season for us at 51lbs.!! Mike Hevagham,Bill Merkle, Anthony Sickener and Don Eyerich finishing off the week with a bass bite that wouldn’t quit. Sensational fishing.
