Hey guys,

After a tough weekend of non-fishing due to high winds and rough seas, we ventured out today with an open boat group of Greg, Paul, Ken, and Eddy. We started out early AM looking for some stripers, but the stripers forgot to show up. We fished a ton of different spots in the bay area, and couldn't find one to open up! So, we decided to shift gears and do some bottom fishing. Long story short...we had a RED HOT tog bite that resulted in an easy limit catch for everyone, including myself, and countless releases. We then went on the hunt for some sea bass and found some nice fish with the biggest around 4lbs.! Our day trips will begin shifting to primarily bottom fishing and our evening trips once the next moon cycle comes up will be drumming with a couple bass mixed in(hopefully). Can't wait to get back at 'em tomorrow! Thanks, guys! Great trip!

Sin, it's a crap shoot. With 58 degree water coming off that hard Northeast blow, striper fishing is super tough. I'll be trying again tomorrow, so we'll see what happens.

Kirk, it might be all bottom fishing all the time day and drumming in the evenings now.

You could always come up and fish Raritan Bay. After all, the bass fishing is better up there anyway :D :D :D :D

Just joking guys
