Fished a nice family from NYC today. Dad, mom, a 4 year old sister, and 6 year old brother. We caught fish until we couldn’t catch any more. Kids caught a couple dozen nice bluefish, dad caught a big sea bass and mom caught my biggest Striper of the year. Her fish was fat and… Continue reading Fishing Family Hits the Jackpot!

Fished the afternoon tide with 3 good fishermen - a divergent group from France, Atlanta, and Baltimore. Wasn’t a great tide but it’s the only time they could fish so we got on the hunt for whatever we could find. Luckily we found fish in every spot. Ended the day with a half dozen… Continue reading Gorgeous Afternoon !!! Plenty of Fish!!!
Fished a great father and son team today from northern CT. We came loaded for anything and everything, and as it turns out that was good. First stop was to catch some giant porgies because they were having a BBQ and told their family that they’d bring something home they could eat. First cast in… Continue reading Lots of Striper and a couple of Jumbo Sea Bass !
I don’t often fish clients for ground-fish as most of my clients want to chase fish on the surface with a fly rod or light tackle. Today though was different and I fished Mark and Tony from the New Haven area and ...they were hell bent on catching some fish to eat!! Mark’s wife had… Continue reading Fishing for Keeps
Fished a fun Father and Son team from Cincinnati. They booked last minute on a crummy tide but we were hopeful to find some fish. Sure enough we searched the reefs and pretty quickly found a nice mix of small bluefish and 24-32” Stripers. We were in those fish and chasing birds for maybe 2.5… Continue reading Great Half Day

Fished with three young guys from NYC and Boston. We had to rearrange our trip to a ‘not so good’ morning tide because of crazy high anticipated afternoon winds. My guys were game for the change and it actually worked out just fine. Caught maybe 25 Bluefish and then went on the hunt for Stripers. … Continue reading Fun Half Day.
Fished with a mother/daughter team, Darlene and Gabby from MA and had a great day even with the wind blowing 30mph. We were stuck with only being able to fish a couple spots, because of the wind, but the ladies had driven 3 hours for the trip so off we went to fish. First cast… Continue reading What a Day!
Made the traditional treck to North Carolina for fall False Albacore season. The area was hit hard by Hurricane Florence so we weren’t sure what to expect. Generally speaking the water was dirty, the weather was crummy and the fishing was NOT good. In the 6 years I’ve been making the pilgrimage to NC for… Continue reading North Carolina False Albacore (NOT)
