Ran back to the North for the end of the tide at the end of the day and another good drift to finish it out. Lee Jensen had the pool fish at 6 pounds 10 ounces until the last drift when Big Jim Eppie hooked into a very nice 7 pounder to take the money!!
Wind against the tide most of the morning cut back on the bite but we still put keepers in the coolers!Fred Poniewozik, Passaic, caught his personel best today after 50 years of Fluke fishing. Waited all day for the change of tide bite, finally got it late and the bite was on!Good action on shorts and keepers.
FISHERMEN Ocean Fishing report 8 8 11 After the past couple days in the bay it was time for a change. Joe and Al did show up with a couple keepers with Joe loosing a huge head banger!Mike had the pool fish at 5 pounds until Big Eddie finally landed a keeper fish at 6 1 4 pounds to take the money.
All the chest bum-bing and high five's of the past couple weeks has gone to sullen faces and shock that this could happen!The hard Southerly every night for the past week has produced a roll which can be felt all the way into the back bay.
Mitch Jevic had a new look today and was a happy camper with a handfull of keepers and a 5 pound pool fish. poor karma right from the start took him out of his game today, wish I had caught the fit on tape!!
