Though snakeheads and clown knifefish failed to cooperate, we did mange to release some colorful and hard-fighting peacock bass before making that long trip across the state again where Alberto and I cast small paddletail jigs from shore during the middle of the night to release spotted seatrout and snook plus a single ladyfish and even a Gulf kingfish which has the same tiny mouth as the northern member of that species that we catch in the surf though very rarely on artificials. Chuck Many reports that jigging for smaller bass was hot during his last trip with Ty Man in Raritan Bay, but the bait bite for bigger bass was slower though he did release the lunker in the photo.
Nice shots of blackfish,lots of fish that just missed the mark but they were jumping on the baits Walter Stewart had the hot had onboard today,He was dialed in and had almost a double limit of keeper blackfish,and probably 30 shorts . Most of the bites were on clam but Mr. Stewart used white leggers all day Nice day out with a great group of guys and girls.
Maybe 4 keeper codfish,few ling Over all very slow day with not many bites unfortunately . Oh well,Monday is canceled and Tuesday not looking good either So lets shoot for Wednesday as the next nice day to get back out there
