Hey guys!

Today, we had an open boat group aboard the ADAM BOMB III for some more striper fishing. Once again, we were fishing the Delaware Bay with fresh clam, and had a steady pick on the first of the ebb tide. Steve(smellinfishy from the Barn) boated the biggest bass of the day, and the biggest to date for '05...a 37.5", 18.5lb. bass on his brand new rod and reel combo! Nice way to break in the new setup, Steve! :D


We ended the morning trip boating ten bass to 37.5", keeping three slots, the bigger fish, releasing three nice 'tweeners, and tossing back a few other shorts. It was a lot of fun with a beautiful day and great crew!

Brian, it was! We got most of our fish at one stop, but checked a couple others out, and had some scattered bites around the bay. It's nice when you can cruise around at nearly 45MPH! :D

Thanks Adam. I broke in that new rod and reel just the way I wanted to. Had a great time today, can't wait to get in that luxury vessel of yours again. Thanks for the great day.

Thanks Aimless for the congrats. Hope to be nailing em in the back bay with you soon.

Thanks, guys. The weather certainly was great. That wind did start cranking pretty good in the afternoon, and I heard that the bay turned to slop.

Steve, it was a pleasure having you aboard! Looking forward to next time we're able to put some more mileage on that outfit!

Yeah we were out with Skip, we had that ride back in, was kinda cool like a roller coaster.


It was probably a bad call on our part we made him stay out. We all made it back safe and sound, thanks for the trip Skip, look forward to the next one.

Guys Great job getting them in the morning. Sure am wishing it was us. Oh well that is what they make next times for!!!

John

Like always good job boys! It seems to be hush hush but I will try anyway, where are you guys fishing up in the bay? Is the bite primarily in one area or are all of the usual spots producing?

Good job Adam. Sounds like the fish are getting a bit bigger. Ran out Monday and ended up next to you guys at the Bug.

Right now you want to be fishing shallow, say 10-15 feet. #1 buoy and it's environs, 20 foot slough, punk grounds etc.
