Left Manasquan inlet @ 8am headed south to the ferris wheel. trolled up many blues to 12lbs. with stretch 30's. Black and Chrome & Blue and Chrome. Water temp 56 degrees 20 knot wind steady out of the south with a lot of chop and 6'rollers on top of eachother made for a very snotty ride south and a smooth ride back. Most of the fleet gave up by noon conditions were getting worse as the day moved on. Left the ferris wheel with no bass saw a few caught on other boats. Headed toward Lovalette and was trolling on the beach in 30-35 feet of water and my buddy was taking in the lines as we were going to head in and bam a monster bass hits the stretch 30 and we boated a nice 45" bass that whent 40lbs. Made up for a tough day. I heard Saturday was much more productive. Did any one else have any luck up North?
