Found some good readings and as soon as we came tight on the anchor and fish on. Landed a keeper bass right away and then had the blues take over. Made a little move and had a nice pick of bass for the rest of the morning to 23# (ORL) and plenty of blues
On the morning trip we picked some shorts and had one keeper. The action was a little bit better in the afternoon trip with more shorts and two keepers. On both trips we fished in Raritan Bay using clams for bait.
We jigged a couple small blues then got the Hell outta Dodge. Everyday is a new ball game leaving the dock and no two days are a-like, one day fishing local the next running all over the Ocean looking for the bite.
Today, we had a pick on a couple of drifts on 2 lb blues. There was plenty of bunker around, which we tried fishing in, to no avail. We then opted to go sea bass fishing for the remainder of the day which produced some good fishing!
With limited time, we decided to stay local and had some action with many blues on light tackle, but did manage a keeper bass at the end of the trip before heading in early.

As noted in last night s blog, the limit is 10 sea bass at a 12 1 2-inch minimum. Castaway s Tackle in Point Pleasant is stocked up with clams and squid for the sea bass, Despite much better weather, it appears that most party boats didn t get out.
