Today (Sunday) there was a big bird play off of cape may right by the buoys at the end of the inlet (near the jetties). Did anyone know what was going on?

We were on our way back from a long day at the CM reef so didn't feel like stopping...

Vinny, looks like the small fry are in. Same thing down the point. Fly rod is producing good number of weakies on small flys but they are mostly all small. That is secondhand info. I didn't book any trips for the weekend since we had alot of family down. They are all non fisherman and I don't want to be out during the day with all the crazy's over the holiday. Did sneak out for 1 1/2 while they went to the mall Saturday night and did get a couple of small bass on the fly. It is a real zoo down here and it is a wonder the fish even have anyplace to hold up during the day without the spinning props chewing up the water.

Ray,

Moved my boat over the WW this spring. Fished the point on Sat AM. Lots of small fluke and blues. Managed a couple keepers out of the Armada.

See you out there.

I was fishing on the Royal Flush yesterday.
The captain found a large bird play approximately one mile off the lower end of Wildwood Crest.They were snapper blues under the birds and a Thresher shark beneath the blues. One of the patrons hooked it and had the opportunity to do battle with it. It caused a lot of commotion on the surface before stripping the reel and breaking off.

Blues. The question is what are they feeding on? Could there be something lurking under the Blues. Mr. Striper :rolleyes:

FIRST OF ALL IS THE ROYAL FLUSH GETTING IN ON THE GHETTO SHARKING?? THERE IS TONS OF SMALL BAIT INSHORE ON LUMPS AND THE BANK AND WITH THE WATER SLOWLY WARMING THE TAILS SHOULD LEAVE AND HOPEFULLY SOMETHING WILL COME FROM THE SOUTH TO FEED LIKE KING'S OR SPANISH OR SOMETHING?
SEEKER 2--I DOUBT IF STRIPERS ARE ON THE BEACHFRONT BUT WITH THIS WEIRD YEAR AND THREASHERS STILL HERE ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

Jim, I was wondering if you were ever going to do any fishing. Steve said you moved the boat, since DB is on the slow side. Keep in touch. I only fish early morning, or sunset to avoid the sun and the boat traffic. I mostly use the fly rod anymore and have been having alot of fun. I will keep my eye open for you. Do you have the name on your boat?
