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).
