12-30-14 We headed out in deepwater today where we had some bigger fish this weekend and had some chewing pretty quick,picked some fish,actually some nice fish but all we could do was just pick at em. Certain guys were dialed in and caught fish,not everyone but scattered around the boat we had guys that ended up with between 2-4 nice Togs,some real quality including Pauly who nailed a Jumbo male that weighed in at 12lb.
Despite a poor weekend due to strong currents, the Jamaica II from Brielle had a better Monday of offshore bottom fishing for ling and some cod. Grumpy's Tackle in Seaside Park reports a few short stripers are being hoked in the surf on clams and small plugs -- such as the new Daiwa DS Minnows.
Had some life right off the bat with some keepers and shorts coming up on our first couple of drops. In the end, high hook had their limit of Blackfish, some with 3-5, some with 1 or 2, some with just shorts and a couple could not get it going.
