Kinda rough out there yesterday, suprising ground swell from something offshore, but we did manage to catch some nice Codfish, big Ling and some left over Porgies and Seabass. Overall most all went home with some nice meat considering the weather.

Needless to say, there were no boat reports Sunday with gale warnings posted and early rain. Betty Nick's in Seaside Park did have a report that was probably from Saturday of a 30-inch striper on an SP Minnow by Lou De Fontney -- plus reports of short bass.
The first drop we saw nice keepers coming up with a good amount of just short fish as well. The second drop we got anchored up and the hounds of hell were all over us, they did back off and then the Tog came out to play. Joey C was high hook today with 10 keepers(orl) and Andrew had 5(orl) and everyone had at least a limit.
The Shore's tuna fishing elite and his many other friends gathered today at O'Brien Funeral Home in Wall for final goodbyes to the greatest giant tuna skipper of the era, Capt. Bob Pisano. Melillo mentioned that water temperatures had moved up in the northeast winds to over 50 degrees.
