I didn't even have the first ray release at Castaways Tackle in Point Pleasant, as Randy, another regular there, had hooked up south of me after seeing rays chasing bait on the surface. Today's trip was good for sea bass, ling and some fluke.
Couple others had 3 keepers including John Frade who got it done fishing in the bow, along with a bunch of nice Sea Bass around the boat. Tara Son were back for the first trip this season and also had some nice Fluke along with Sea Bass for a nice dinner.
The guys did manage to pick and pluck away for a mixed bag of Ling and Sea Bass and a few 4 spots. The charter wanted to finish up with some Ling so we went to the deep and picked away at them and added another 40 to the cooler with some jumbo Bergalls, overall a good day with a nice mixed bag.
