    2-28-16 Nice day to start but it did get nasty out there this afternoon. Fishing was slow to,,not good life and we only ended up with a handful of keeper blackfish,,a codfish and a pollock. .Winds were howling out of the Sw and seas got pretty dumpy. Stiil we had a big daily pool and the pool winner had his limit and a nice chunk of change. Pauly took home the seasonal. .Congrats Pauly!!!!!!!!!Blackfish season is closed as of today,,we start Codfishing from here on out. but tomorrow is canceled due to high winds and seas for tomorrow. So no fishing tomorrow and on Tuesday we have our annual Coast Guard inspection so no fishing Tuesday either. .I will let you know the next good day to head out to the Codfish grounds!!!!!

    2-22-16 I can say it was a really pretty day out there today,,ocean was beautiful and warm for this time of year,,,Pretty dull fishing today,,covered some ground looking for some good life and never really found it. Near the end of the day the current started coming out of the Se and we started catching a few fish,Kenny caught 3 keeeper togs,,then a few other keepers came up and Skip ended up catching a nice fish about 8lbs. and took home the pool,,it all came when the water warmed up to 45 degrees offshore with the current. other than a keeper codfish it was a tough day overall. Still nice day out with a great bunch of guys,,as for tomorrow and the next few days we are gonna cancel. Ne winds start tonite after midnite and its gonna be nasty out there tomorrow. No way we are gonna get offshore to where the life is. I will let you know here when the next day is gonna be,,maybe by Friday. .Big pool is now over 3900 bucks and it looks like we are gonna have maybe 3-4 more days to try and beat it. .After the 28th we are gonna start Codfishing everyday. .Stay tuned for next day to fish!!!
  • 2016-02-21 Ocean Explorer Belmar

    2-21-16 Really nice day offshore today,,we started off with some keeper blackfish coming up,,including a pool winning fish that went just under 12 lbs. .handful of other nice fish and it looked like it was gonna be a decent day but the bites we had stopped and it was a struggle to get any more keeper Togs,,besides great weather it was tough fishing,,the fish just got lockjaw for some reason. .still a great day with a great bunch of people. .Looks like tomorrow is gonna be good,,but Tuesday and Wednesday,,maybe Thursday will be nasty so tomorrow is the day to go!!
