times have been tough. in the last two weeks we have only sailed three times. the weather and low turnout has been the main cause of this. until the action picks up a bit we will be running on firday, saturday, and sunday. if you have a group and would like to fish on any other day just call and we will be glad to take you out. on the day,s that we did get out their was one drum fish caught that tipped the scale around55lb, for this time of year that was nice. the blue fish still have a lock on the bay with fish in the 1 - 2 lb range and a few 3-5 lb fish sneaking in as well. the trout still are lurking around as well. when we are able to anchor up a few manage to make their way back to the table for a tasty meal. the trout are in the 13" to 17" range, and again a few nicer one's mixed in. some medium crokers are around, with the mainstay of croaks in the tiny range, but they make great bait for the trout. last saturday we did get a nice flounder that went 26" ond weighed 7lb, but like the state of n.j. said the season is closed so back it went. mr. willison has been a regular site on sunday's, and anyone that is their when he is around knows his name with out a doubt. on monday the 29 of september we did get to see the uss grasp, the search and rescue ship going up the bay. it is always a treat to one of our fine navy ships coming thru this area. striper season is around the bend. keep checking or call to see when the bite starts.

this week has been a short one. the sponsorship has been on the low side. however on thursday a few hearty fisherman did spend a wonderful day on the bay. the action started on the slow side but after a readjustment of location the fish were jumping into the boat, that is when you were able to keep the seagulls off your line. you see the bluefish were up pretty good and it was one after another, that was a good thing. for some reason we caught 6 birds as well, WOW. now for all you bird lovers i just want you to know that during this trip all birds were released and returned to the wild unharmed. i had the opportunity to meet some fine people today , the carr boys. when i asked where they were from the only place they said was san quintin, in salem co. i knew this group was a handful. the main spokesman name was cordell, but they called another brother 96. was not sure how that came about, they said their were 9 brothers and their dad would not sell one of them for a million dollars, but would not pay a nickle for one more. well anyhow the blue fish were very cooperative today, lets see what the weather has in store for the weekend.

well, well, well,they made it this year. after last years big to do, this year went much smoother. it was one of the nicest nights we have had in quite some time. the weather was simply beautiful. once we dropped the hook it was game on. josh and the boys were on point with who can catch the most, and biggest but the scores of the ball games took command at times. then you have mr. mark who caught the first fish of the night,and boy oh boy was it a nice one. he made sure that mr. lou knows when, and how often he caught a fish. from what i witnessed all mr. marks fish were nice ones, but do not ask efraim about that. speaking of "i got you back louie" efraim, it was nice to see that for a change my brother made it. it was great that his son edgar was their as well. after a slight move and waiting for the tide to slow down a bit the time came to put down the bottles of fruit juice "ok right" and catch some fish, but first someone had to tell howard, efraim and the cruz brothers WAKE UP and fish. the trout came alive, up on top it was nice to see this at this time of year. after culling thru the shorts their was still a nice haul of trout, and blue fish to be had. to top the evening off mr. mark cut loose with some quality cigars and let the good time roll. as you all know i might not pluck chickens, but i do know how to catch fish. thank you all for a great night of fishing.
well their is life after flounder season. over the past week the trout fishing has been the main focus of our time. the day has been spent anchoring up at different locations both inshore and at the structures. at times it seems that the action is slow but as the day moves on the catch evens out. charlie from phila. caught his limit of trout on thursday, al anderson tried something different that his salami bait, moved up the side of the boat by himself, and used good fresh clam and filled his limit the same day. on friday the regulars had their way with the trout. it was not the same as on thursday but still ok. bobbi pennington came down again and caught her flounder again this time the 21" went back so it can be caught over in delaware, thank you njfw. the same day harry adams from willimgton de. won the pool for the 6th time this year. way to go harry walk on the water. lets see what we can capture next week on the great delaware bay.

well leave it to mr. ted the fish pit mc daniels to catch the strange fish of the year. we were fishing up at 6 buoy on monday the 8th and at the end of the day his rod went down, and i do mean down. it was in the rod holder and snapped. when he finally reeled it up their was a 31 1/2" silver cutlassfish their. the girth was 5 3/4" and the weight was 14oz. one thing for sure is that it was a surprise to all.

well the last two weeks went by fast with no big fan fare finish. each day we tried to capture some flounder. some days were better than others. on one friday a long time friend showed up bobbi pennington came down to show us how it was done. with her broken rod tip bobbi caught the pool winning flounder. if i remember correct it was 22". way to go bobbi. on days that the drift was not an option anchoring was way to go. one day at 6 buoy the trout showed up and big jack started the day off HOT. as soon as we got set on the hook jack started his expo. one trout after another.leave it to jack to raise the bar with a group of fisherman that need some motivation. mixed in with the trout are some nice blue fish, spot, small croakers, some kings, and a few blowfish. now that flounder fishing is closed this will be the target of the day. when those big ol slammer stripers move in we will let you know. their is one picture above that all of us have seen in our own tackle box at one time or another, it just is one of those things, good luck with that.
