We had Rebecca Redington & Alyssa Madosky from @ChicksRippinLips out this past Wednesday May, 2. We started with a slow bite on the troll with only boxing two fish. This slow bite lasted a couple hours. We had to make some moves to find some life and we found it. We spotted some bird activity, headed in that direction and starting marking a huge school of Striped Bass. We threw out the shads and had an immediate triple header. This action lasted for a half hour, with us landing fish after fish.
left the highlands and took a quick ride to scout some spots around raritan bay with Kevin. 10 minutes in and we started marking fish on the side scan. The side scan told us what side to toss the shad to. We had a double header on the first cast. Had our limit + in 5 minutes. All nice fish to 36”. Called it quits after an hour.
Had Mike Mcneely charter out this am. Left the beautiful Sandy Hook Bay Marina in Highlands NJ at 7am, within a few minutes we were in Raritan Bay. We had to do some bouncing around. Not hot and heavy like we had them but we got em. 7 fish in the box and a bunch lost at the boat. I see slobs in the near future.
Had Fisher Neal @huntingactor charter out this am. Took a short ride from our marina in Highlands, NJ Had action not long after getting the lines in the water, boxing 3 right away. Slowed up a bit so made a move. Found life and had our limit pretty quickly. Catch and release the rest of the morning. We had thick fog most of the morning. Very happy with my #simrad 4G Radar.
Friday 4/27 Had zaf and nick out for a afternoon trip. Left our marina in Highlands, NJ and Found fish pretty quick. Trolled up our limit in 10 minutes with multiple double headers. After that we just threw out the shads and had intense action for a couple hours. Lost track but somewhere around 35 fish.
Had Brian Sutherland charter out this am. Guys couldn’t start until 8am, so as soon as they got to the boat we put the hammer down. Got to the back quickly and we were rewarded just as fast. We had steady action all morning. Had our limit + with a bunch of shorts mixed in.
