Children (under 12 yrs) 30, SUNDAY We had a good day's catching with a mess of blues, plenty of shorts and 5 keepers for the 8 anglers, mostly regulars, aboard today. We did have a couple of new to the Dorothy B. aboard today, Andre and Alex, who each boated a keeper bass with Andre getting the pool fish weighing 16 lbs.
We picked at some Ling, few small Cod, few keeper Cod and some Blackfish (which went back to catch again next year). We did see a few Bluefish show up out there today so hopefully when we start night fishing next weekend they will still be there.
If you plan on buying a new set up and you plan on coming out for bass, bluefish, fluke and porgies look into getting a spinning rod and reel to make life a lot easier on yourself. They are the best because you can cast them easier, no birds nest and you need to cast away from the boat when we are fishing for the bass and bluefish plus if you want to snag bunker, use a jig or bucktail it is so much better using a spinning rod.
