    Default Trip Report 7/13/19

    Went off to the SE out of Cape May Inlet and had a trying day to get meat. We did have a Sea Bass Limit for 6 people with 4 of the Bass being Knot Heads. Had about 15 throwback Sea Bass. Fluke was pretty spotty and poor . Caught about 12 with only 2 making 17 inches so back they went and we had a Big Zero on Fluke. Trolled for about 45 minutes and got 4 Bonito and one Spanish Mack around FA territory.Fish that came out of the deeper water around the 80 to 85 foot range were cold and it appears that the SW winds are starting to give us a Temp. Inversion .Next trip going into Delaware Bay and see if the warmer Bay Temps may put the Fluke in a feeding mood.

    Thanks for the report. I do not know many people that fish the d bay but the bit of info I have is that the bite has slowed a bit. Hopefully I’m wrong.

    it was fun catching the bonitta and mackeral and as a matter of fact , just gone done eating my share for lunch. i liked both, but the mackeral was better. was surprised to see the bigger sea bass come over the rail, but was happy and filling the fish bag in the freezer. flounder sux……………… I talked to several other guys and one popular charter guy at the end of the day as he was trying to land flounder for the tourney at a wreck we were on so we just floated around him as we were just sea bassing , and as far as fluke, they had crappy results.

    by the way we also were catching ling and each fish we brought aboard were cold. we are guessing the bottom temps are maybe 60 degrees.why else would ling be around. fat dave also brought in a blow fish.

    AC pots and Hambone are about same line as FA, wonder if the Bonita are up north too. Feathers or spoons for the Bonita?

    Spanish Macks and Bonito were all caught on Spoons. 2 to 3 oz. trolling weight with a 3 to 4 foot leader and troll at approx. 3 to 4 MPH.
