We left the doc at 7:00 with the outside temperature at a beautiful 35 degrees.
Our first stop was achored up in 32 feet of water on the south side of the Longport Bridge for the incoming. Water temp at 53 degrees. 2 doggies and 1 skate using clam. no stripers :( We moved for the outgoing to the south side of the 9th street bridge. One nice flounder. Not the day I was hoping for.

How about the chop today? Anybody see the GE inlet today? :eek:

Yep... in fact, I was the idiot in the 24 CC that stopped to see how you were doing (since there were only two guys that left the dock today, I'm figurin that was you behind the pile!)

After dropping twice north of you and not liking boat position, I went off ships channel and tucked myself in behind a marina... coupla skates, two nice runoffs... no fish. Then went over to the main channel behind Longport to see if it was worth setting up for the outgoing... it was not.

Inlet did look kinda cool... from the road.

Did a little surfing in the inlet yesterday to see how the boat would handle.. like a champ! Some nice 6-8 footers rolling through.. it was nasty!

I was out at Rainbow for a little while Saturday. Once the tide turned, I thought it would lay down a little and I would hit the OC/Lonport bridge area. I was one of 4 boats that made U-turns at the bridge. More fun than a roller coaster ride, but for fish, it wasn't worth it for me. My boat is to small to hang around in that stuff for long.

FM TUNA--it must have been one of the other 3 boats that did not have enough sense to stay home. I don't know if you saw me anchored up but I was the 18' Trophy with green hull paint. In my opinion, a day fishing in cold, windy, choppy conditions catching nothing but throw backs is still better then staying home and cleaning the house. Glad to see that the stripers showed up for you.

Jam--Glad to see that you had better luck then we did. We didn't even have any run offs. We are going to try again on friday. Sorry about drifting past you. Had problems getting my anchor to catch.
