When drifting conditions were right Fluke fishing was very good this week, lots of smaller fish mid week and bigger Fluke and Jumbo Seabass this weekend as the swells settled Bucktailing is still the most productive method with teaser above bucktail tipped with 4 or 5 Gulp swim mullet any color. Fluking NOW is rough bottom and this weekend we fished most around wrecks 5,6, and 7 pounders were pretty common so if you caught a limit you had a lot of pounds of meat.
Good size gang on the morning trip and a lot went home with a bag of Fluke filets. Limits this weekend included Ben Marzolla Dave Tootchen Gene Murphy Mike Hetrick Justin Murphy Tom Coligan Henry Wyscott Just to name a few - Saturday am probably one of our best trips this summer so far Back at it tomorrow Half Day Fluke and Seabass daily except Mondays 8 am and 2 pm All Day Fluke Seabass Marathon every Monday - 7 30 am Capt Ryan
Decent week of Fluke catches but conditions dictated the results each trip. Weekend results were mixed with a poor day Saturday because it was so rough and a better day and a lot more action on Sunday Catches this week include the new July monthly winner Chris Molinari No Haledon NJ with a 9 pound 3 ounce Fluke Charles Granger Matawan, NJ limit Fluke to 7 lbs and 3 Seabass Tim Walliston Pennsauken, NJ limit Fluke to 8 lbs and 3 Seabass Half Day Fluke 8 am and 2 pm everyday except Mondays All Day Fluke and Seabass every Monday 7 30 am
Good Fluke fishing today even with a fast drift lots of throwbacks but some nice 4-6 pounders hitting the deck also Biggest fish of the week was caught by Joe Baczynski Willingboro, NJ a 9. 5 pound Flattie Gary Berger Trenton caught a limit today with a 5 and a 7 pounder part of his limit Walter Scire Manchester had a limit to 6 lbs Larry Quattrano Princeton, NJ limit Fluke to 6 lbs Best fishing of the summer right now for quantity and quality Capt Ryan
Some bigger keepers, lots more throwbacks and good action as temps push into the sixties - hope it stays there with more south wind coming. Dan Weeks Trenton and Brian Phelder Washington, NJ had limits up to 5 lbs Pics are coming Hopefully the uptick in action will continue, it should if water temps hold Bucktailing has worked best when the drift has been slow but dragging baits better when the wind blows.
Kinda a tough week of fishing this past week, south winds have been very annoying keeping the water cold. Once this storm exits hopefully water will settle and fishing should improve as water temperatures rise.
