Capt. Rob Semkewyc of the Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands even ran out to reports of bunker schools in the ocean in hopes of finding very big bass, but only a few bass were caught before he returned for the ebb. Even Point Pleasant Canal was strangely quiet as I often retrieved a large sandworm without a hit, but eventually released a 14 1 2-inch blackfish and one other plus two small sea bass on the morning slack.
We went to the area where we had good fishing before yesterdays weather and only caught a few porgies, a lot of shorts seabass and a couple of blackfish. Our schedule will stay the same, 3 4 day bottom fishing for seabass porgies and blackfish leaving at 7 30 and returning between 2 30 and3pm.
Captain Fran Verdi of the Francesca Marie has experienced several good years in a row putting his anglers on striped bass.

Gail warning with NW wind to 35 knots against an incoming tide most of the day is beyond Fishing in the Snot so we won't be shaping up Friday morning. Never got the bite today, even after we were into 2 1 2 hours of the tide.
It was a great day of striper fishing today with many more to come as the season is just getting started!With Miss Belmar s 3 engines and a total of 2,100 horsepower, she is the first boat to the fishing grounds every day and we guarantee it.
The best surface casting bite of striped bass in Raritan Bay I've ever seen occurred Wednesday afternoon while fishing with Chuck Many of Annndale on his Ty Man from Gateway Marina in Highlands after an 11 a. m. departure and a stop for gas before getting out just in time for the outgoing tide. The Jamaica has another canyon tuna trip set for Nov. 14 at 7 a. m. -- and is also taking reservations (732 528-5014) for the first giant sea bass trips to far offshore wrecks Saturday with a few spots left for a 1 a. m boarding plus Nov. 17 and 18 at 11 30 p. m.
It was a little bit of a ride but I knew I had some time to kill, as our best fishing has been on the outgoing tide the past week. If the fishing was even half as good as its been we would have a good day.
