After This Past Weekend May Has It Going On Here In The NJ BackWaters...
Pick Your Favorite FISH Picture Above and you have a great chance of hooking into some..

I took my first skunk of the year the other night,not a nibble... I worked the very bottom of the out-going tide then a few hours of in-coming.Water actually felt a little cooler then the week before.And that might be why the only Weakfish to be caught happened at the bottom of the tide..They were there..


Everyone Have A Great Week Of Fishing...

Fished Ludlams early on saturday, caught 7 flounder, 3 keepers. Too many boats and not enough water to manuver around so headed to the reef around 8 a.m for some tog.Kept a few 15-16" and released a bunch including a 8.5# momma all caught on greenies. Had a couple of short sea bass also on crab

Fished Somers Point in Ships Channel and Parkway Bridge Sunday morning. Caught 5 flounder shorts (2 at 16") and one sea pigeon. Wind picked up made drifting diffcult. It was great to catch some decent fish this early in season.

Had the Kayaks out behind Ocean city. I landed two shorts to 16 inches. My buddy got the big one of the day. A nice fat 20 incher. Lost tons of nice fish, guess i was anxious and was setting the hook to early. Will be at it again sat.

Someone turned the switch off on the fluke this morning. Water temp dropped to 54 degrees from 64 on sunday. Tried 8 of my best spots and ended up removing my original baits without a hit.

Congratulations to Dan of the Zacharowsky party who landed this 13+ pound tog aboard the Karen Ann II this weekend. Fish was nearly 26" in length with a tremendous girth. On the digital scale on the boat, lowest weight I saw was 12 lbs. 14 oz. and it hit 14 lbs. one time, but spent most of the time in the mid-13's. The fat female was full of eggs and we let her go. Made a splash like an M-80 in the water upon swimming away! The tog bite is holding up well in 50'-60' but we are seeing a lot of females now and most all are egg laden. Fish are also in the bay along the sod banks.

Fished the first couple hours of the incoming
this morning with Casting disaster. We got out
just as the tide started to turn around 1:15am.
It didn't take long for our first hook-up...



Over the next hour we had somewhat steady
action, landing 4 more bass. All but one of
them was caught on the blk/ppl bomber. The
other took a pink zoom. These guys were fiesty,
with a few leaping clear out of the water. The
final bass count was: 1 short, 3 slots, and a 28".

Just as we were getting ready to head out, Rich
got his first weakfish of the spring... :cool:


And the release



It was a real nice night of fishing with ideal
conditions...clear water, light breeze, and no
bugs :D We didn't see anyone else out either.

I was out and about yesterday - started in the daylight around 5:15 for the last of the incoming looking for fluke along the sods. No takers for me. Did manage 1 bluefish and had 1 miss both on mirro lure about the top of the tide. Switched locales to fish the outgoing around dusk. Picked up a slot size bass pretty quickly. It was diseased like many of you have mentioned. (pretty nasty really). On next cast I hooked up again but lost the fish. Both on bucktail tipped with pink Gulp sand eel.

That was it for me. Fished till about 10PM and was too tired to keep going. Avoided the skunk but a less than stellar night. Still great to be out.
