6 13 16 It's been two weeks since I reported a fishing report. The first week great, the second week good, the third week picky, and with a few days off due to weather, it seems the wrecks are rejuvenating with new fish.
A few pool winners were Len Smith of Florence, NJ with a nice 4-lb sea bass Bob Nolan (cotton Bob) also took the money with a 3. Joe Schwing won with a 3-lb sea bass, Arty Hoyt of Manahawkin, NJ won with a nice 4-lber, Jim Cryan of Florence, NJ won with a nice 4.
Pool winner was Bob Pianetti of Manahawkin, NJ. I've seen many giants caught, but to see a fisherman passionate about the fish after he lands it, well, say what you want, but to plan the release afterward can be a harder battle than the catch itself, especially when you have to do a weigh-in.
6 27 15 Monday starting out was a bit slow, some sea bass were still to be caught and a 3-lb fluke took the pool by Billy Seidle of South Hampton, NJ. On Friday we had more sea bass but a 3. 8-lb fluke won, caught by Mark Keple of Manahawkin, NJ.
Since the NMFisheries wont let us fish for sea bass until May 26 (my mistake on the last report), which is the Tuesday after the holiday weekend, on the Memorial weekend, (Sat and Sunday only), we will be fishing for stripers and or blues. This Saturday and Sunday will be the last trip until May 27 (the opening of sea bass season).
