Saturday was the first tough day in a while! We did catch fish but not nearly enough. Hi Hook was 5 for Jim Stieves & Ken Fuchs. Both had a bonus fish as well to take home. We have been lucky this season with only a few days when I see lots but catch only some. The fish we caught were buldging as their belly's were over full. We will sail on a limited schedule sailing on the nice days only.

A few lucky patrons got their bonus plus a keeper. Remember, 6:30am departures Monday. Tuesday looks like rain and windy just a crap day. Hoping you join us Monday. If you are scheduled for Tuesday please consider coming Monday.
Very Nice Action for Stripers to 29" today! The few who braved the cold were treated to a calm, sunny, very nice day by 9am. Found a nice area of mixed size stripers this morning. Lots of birds, fish swirling and breaking water, along with readings. Many had 4-8 bass today getting a bonus fish and or a keeper too. The 6" shads (white) worked best today along with jigs to persuade the Stripers to bite. Once the tide ended around the noon the action considerably slowed. Warmer temps the next couple day, so come on down and get your Striper! We will make Monday a extra marathon trip departing at 6:30am and returning 3:30pm. Tuesday weather is fishable but Monday looks much nicer. Hope to see ya aboard
Friday NO SAIL too windy
Today was the up day! The Action was better as we picked at slot sized fish to 27" along with many shorts tossed back. Still not crazy action but for Striper fishing acceptable. I always want more but beggars can't be choosers. We had a number of JUMBO BONITO mixed in today as well. Lou DiAngelo had a big Bonito, a slot Striper and a few shorts tossed back. Friday is a NO SAIL. THE WEEKEND LOOKS CALM WITH Sunday the warmer day
The Yo-yo season continues! One day good the next slow. After very good action Tuesday, Wednesday was slow. We did capture some slots and shorts and see lots swirl and splash throughout the day. Lets hope Thursday is a up day!! See ya aboard
BEST ACTION so far this Striper Season!! Big FISH early all on jigs today. Later I found an area of smaller fish willing to chew. We picked slot sized fish with shorts most of the mid day into the early afternoon. Rental rod customer using a 47 green tail won the pool with a 46” fish. Weather looking good for Wednesday and very good for Thursday. Friday looks terrible. See ya aboard
A few QUALITY STRIPERS TODAY! Slow overall but what we caught was HUGE.
Much Better today vs Saturday! Lots of life showed up early and late today and produced some Quality Bass to 48" Stoney & Ken tied for the pool with a couple of mid 40 pound Stripers! Bob Gieson got one a Kroc, while Ahren tricked his with a 47 green tail. Looked very fishy out there today! Weather looking Awesome for Monday.

Weather was SUPER but the fishing was a complete hack today
Weekend thru early week weather looking great for early Novmeber! Hope to See you aboard
We did not sail on Tursday or Friday too rough
Started off promising! Fish swirling and marked plenty of fish. First few drifts produced some Bass to 46" along with some Albies and a Big Bonito. Unfortunately, it was all over by 10:30☹️☹️☹️. We managed only a couple more fish all day after that
Good Day! Nice start for the Marathon Trips! Jim Steel missed 3 and boated 2, Ray was hi-hook boating 3 to 47" all on jigs with the green-tail 47 the best again. Gold Diamond did catch a couple as well as Gold Kroc
Great Start to the Striper Season today! Green tail 27-67's worked best. We did get some on plain jigs as well as Krocs. Weather looks very nice again for Friday into Saturday. Monday we are chartered and Tuesday is our first Striper Marathon. Hope to see ya aboard.
Overall was a tough weekend for us. A few Blues, some Albies and Bones plus some Sea Bass too. The highlight was Billy from Philly's surprise Tuna at the whistle Subday afternoon. Great fish Bill
The Final Bonito/Alby special wasn't so special. We did cover the board and have excellent action for Mackerel and lots of small Blues to keep busy. Some Bonito and a more Albies were picked early and one Alby here and there along with many Macks after 11am. Overall good action but more Bonito & Alby woukd have made it even better. NO SAIL WEDNESDAY - FRIDAY. WEEKEND IS LOOKING FABULOUS: Sunshine, calm and nice temps
Monday was back to nice action! Good mix of Small Blues with Bonito, Alby, Sea Bass & Porgy mixed in! Hope to see ya for your last shot at Bonito & Alby tomorrow 6am leave. Usually the mid October blow we are supposed to get this Wed - Friday pushes these fish out of here. Hope to see ya aboard
With a week of terrible weather forecasted we took advantage of the crap weather situation. Knowing we would loose the whole week with rough sea the plan was get the bottom refreshed and knock off a couple projects early. I want to thank the crew for ajob well done. Cleaning puke is better than sanding, scraping, walking around scketchy scaffolding and painting. Needless to say, its work that if I could pay double, I would gladly drop the boat off, and walk away. Unfortunately, somehow, its more than 10X the amount! So again, I thanks the crew for helping me in the effort to keep the Queen Mary looking nice!
Pic 1 Monday we brought boat to the yard before the hard Southerly kicked in.
The crew and myself put a few long days in getting the topside projects completed! Tuesday was VERY LONG day prepping the inside of the waist. There is nothing wasy about this on the new boat. There are all sorts of nooks and crannies to get around. Whoever designed this was not thinking about painting this or having to clean it everyday. The Hull wasnt as hard but took all day and into the late evening to get ready for some filling and fairing before painting. Wednesday and Thursday we painted
We launched got her ready to sail and waited for the wind to subside to bring back to the dock
Well we have been waiting for the after labor day weather to begin and here it is and lots of crap weather to come! We lost Tuesday, Thursday & Friday last week. Saturday, with the NE wind supposed to ease late in morning, so we departed an hour late. The moved worked out well as the first couple hours were rough but the last few were much nicer and the fish bit well late! The last hour provided very good action making the day a good one. Sunday on the other hand the wind was up way earlier than predicted and just kept getting harder. Sunday the fishing sucked! We had 20 Blues and 2 Porgy before beating our way home in the hard Southerly. This whole week the seas look rough! Monday is a NO SAIL
Monday we much rougher than predicted and made fishing almost impossible until late morning. Once we could drift many rallied and we picked away at the Blues! George Hamway was Hi-Hook with a dozen Blues and a few Porgys. Bob Gieson had 10+, Stoney threw a bunch ovr the rail as well. Ben hada bunch of Blues as well as an Alby. Tuesday we did not sail. Wednesday will be nice and the only nice day until this weekend. I hope to see ya aboard Tomorrow Wedensday
Picked early, slow in the middle and Very Good the last hour! Was planning on fishing a bit longer than usual until a errant cast landed and stuck in a deckhands head! So in we went and after 1/2 hour at the ER the hook was out and Cole still has some brain cells left. Overall it ended up being a nice day and a good catch. Weather should be good for Monday. See ya aboard
Lots of Albys with some Bonito and a few Spanish in the mix! The Blues were gone but the action was steady on pink lures. Pink Daddy Mac and epoxy jigs were best Saturday.
A gorgeous day and the light crowd experienced a wonderful action with lot of ALby and Blues along with Bonito & Spanish Mackerel.
Lots of Action today with everything on the menu! The next 2 Thursdays are special Bonito/Alby/School Bluefin trips. Rough conditions made fishing the light soft plastic stuff nearly impossible. I have to believe if we could have used the Tsunami Split tails we would have had even more Bonito & other exotics. Weather looks SUPER Friday into the weekend. I will head to the same area tomorrow for our Daily 7:30am trip. Hope to see ya aboard
Gorgeous Day after a very rough Tuesday! The Blues were there but tough to catch. Maybe the worst day in 6 weeks! We did have a hi-hook with 10 Blues and others had 4-6 Blues but many didnt. Whereever I seemed to go today the big Sea Bass (not in season) seemed to be hungry but that doesnt help when they all go back. Nordy, had 5 Blues a bunch of Sea Bass and 2 Alby so those who turned the handles had a catch. Weather looks nice thru the weekend. Hope to see ya aboard
Tuesday the weather forecast was a bit off and the conditions were basically unfishable most of the day. We did manage a dozen or so Mahi to make something out of nothing. The report was ROUGH
Monday was a tale of two halves! Morning, we picked the occasional fish most drifts. The area seemed dead compared to what had been going on most days the past few weeks. Satu & Sunday got better and better as the day went along. Around 11:30am all of a sudden bait was all over and whales began going crazy. The next few driftswe began to pick blues steady. Around noon, Blues were on top. Jigs & top water plugs worked well. The last hour we held multiple fish on with shots of 4-6 on at a time. Ended up being a very nice and productive day! Bob Gieson & 'Big Game Jack held their own but neither could catch Stony who somehow put on a clinic. Plain and green tailed 27's worked equally well this afternoon. We head off for Tuna/Mahi @ 3am tonight for Tuesday. Wednesday 7:30am departure and Thursday is our Bonito, Alby, Mahi inshore special 6am departure. Weather looks good for all so SEE YA ABOARD
Another fine day of jigging Blues with many dinner plate sized porgy mixed in! Lots of Whales in the area to make the day interesting too. Saw a whale full breach 3 times today. Weather looks ok for Monday. Tuesday we are offshore for Tuna/ Mahi with 4 open spots. Wednesday's weather looks maybe best of week, normal 7:30am departure. Thursday is another 6am Special Bonito / Albacore special. Finally, Friday thru the weekend is our normal 7:30am to 2pm daily Blues with other local species trip. See ya aboard!
FANTASTIC ACTION! Blues to 10 pounds
Hi hook had over 30
Friday's Special Bonito & Alby trip worked out very well! A nice Mix of Bonito, lots of Alby, about 20 Spanish Mackerel and plenty of Blues too! Very Nice day after the wind diminished late in the morning. Jigs and Tsunami Split tails worked best
Canceled Tuesday & Wednesday due to Rough Seas.
We will shift Thursdays Bonito, Alby special to Friday morning leaving 6:30am and return 2:30pm. Its still blowing but supposed to calm nicely tomorrow afternoon leaving us with a nice Friday. Hope to see ya aboard. If you have a prepay or a reservation and can join us Friday no need to call. If You need to reschedule give a call or shoot an email
Mondays offshore trip for Kristina Raudy's group did well with Mahi! We did loose a nice tuna and fight some bigger sharks as well. Unfortunately, this cold front will bring windy rough conditions for a few days. Watch the reports as we may loose Tuesday - Thursday due to NE conditions. Friday looks like the next nicer day
Just a FANTASTIC day for the Ronnie’s group from Westrock. Blues, Bonito, Alby and Spanish Mackerel were all on the menu.
Slow overall both trips Some Blues but still rough
Friday the 13th! NO SAIL too rough
Thursday’s Bonito/Alby Special was Great!!
Lots of Alby with Bonito, Spanish & King mackerel and a nice Mahi too. At times if you let your jig hit the bottom it was all the 2-4 pound Blues you wanted. Great weather, customers, and the fishing was wonderful.
Please remember we are SOLD OUT thru Monday. There is 1 spot left for Tuesdays Tuna/Mahi trip. Wednesday thru next weekend there is plenty of room at this time
Solid Blues both morning and afternoon on Wednesday!
Fanstastic Mahi-mahi Action on Bait & jigs
Searched long & hard for hours looking for the tuna but struck out picking a few Mahi on a weedline near the Texas Tower. Later in the day we found another area of weed and the Mahi action was best on bait after the jigs would get us started when we would pull back up to the area. We worked the area until we had a boat limit of Mahi-mahi to 15 pounds and headed home a bit late
ONLY ONE SPOT LEFT FOR NEXT TUESDAY SEPT 17 & 4 spots for Sept 24th
Another Fantastic Day aboard the Queen Mary for Blues to 9 pounds! The Wen Gang chose Monday as the weather looked great plus we are holding Corp Events Wed, Friday - Sunday this week. The only open boat trip this week is Thursday Sept 12 6am departure for Bonito, Alby & Mahi
Back at it after our first Tropical System off our coast this summer season! Dorian was quick but nasty for 14-18 hour but the sea settled quickly and SUnday was very nice on the water. The Blues cooperated very well from mid-morning until 1pm. A bit larger than before the storm with many 5-6 pounders and pool winner about 8 pounds. Brothers Ian & Owen pictured below had a wonderful day!
NO SAIL Friday & Saturday due to Hurricane Dorian
Pic is the first cooler full before 10am for 10 people fishing Had Steven King's group from PA aboard today. The winds and seas were up this AM so it was slow going getting up the area we have been in the past couple of weeks. The Blues were picky at first but as the sea calmed the fishing got stronger. In the end, we had another fantastic catch by noon and went home early! All ya wanted the last hour! Blues are averaging 3-4 pounds and largest fish of the day was 7 pounds. We will be in Friday & Saturday due to the passage of Hurricane Dorians presence tomorrow late day. Saturday the storm will be gone but will take the day for things to calm. Sunday and Monday look very nice. We are open boat only the following days this week: Sunday & Monday normal 7:30am departure plus Thursday's special Bonito, Alby, School Tuna & Mahi Trip departs 6am
Fantastic Action Continued!
The great Bluefish Action held up thru the whole Holiday weekend into todays trip for All State Septics annual charter. All the Blues you could reel this morning to 7 pounds. Plain & tailed jigs working equally well if reeled quickly. We had a handful of Bonito and some mackerel mixed today as well! Wednesdays weather looks good. Get down before the storm begins to affect our area. Never know what a big storm will do to this great fishing. Hope to see ya aboard tomorrow, Wednesday
Another SUPER DAY PLUS the Weather cooperated much better! Bright sunshine calm seas and lots of Blues on jigs. Friday’s weather looks even better. Hope to see ya aboard
We were back in action for the day trips today after a few days off due to rough sea conditions on the ocean! Couldnt have gone better except for the raindrops at times. The Blues were snapping and many had limits or close to it. The Blues were a bit larger today as they averaged 3 pounds with many 4& 5 pounders in the mix. A few nice Spanish Mackerel were in the mix as well as a Bob Gieson's 21" Fluke taken on a jig. The pool winner was a 7 pound Bluefish. Small diamonds plain or with a tail worked well as did most 2-4OZ jigs. Weather looking very nice through the weekend so come on down while the fishing is HOT. See ya aboard

Wednesday Aug 21
LIMITS OF BLUES! Fast Action jigging for Blues up to 5 pounds. Most people when I asked said they lost count of how many they caught!
All Mahi on this one to 13 pounds! Pool winner was Richie"1000" with a quality Mahi taken on bait. Bait definitely was the ticket as the Wedneday Gang had more than the rest of the boat combined. New Bob was Hi-Hook with 5, Ray & Richie were close behind with 4 each.
Fine Day aboard the Queen of the Fleet! We went a different direction today as the inshore Bluefish bite slowed up yesterday. The gamble payed off, LOTS of Bonito with some Alby mixed in. Took a while to find em and get em going but once we did both Jigs and bait worked, bait was actually better today for the first tome this year. Remember we are now Tuna/Mahi fishing every Tuesday unless noted here. See ya aboard Wed thru the weekend for our 7:30am to 2pm sailing. See ya aboard.

Saturday June 22
After a very tough weather day Friday, Saturday was bright sunshine, warm temps, and nicer sea conditions. This fishing was a pick at best most of the day. The last drop provided good action along with a nice amount of keeper Sea Bass. Overall it was a nice day but the fishing could have been a bit better. The evening trip provided some nice keeper Sea Bass and lots of Ling. Sunday and early weeks weather looks VERY NICE! Hope to see ya aboard
Wednesday June 19
Sea Bass & Ling have dominated the catch the past couple of days. Today, a large winter Flounder won the pool. This afternoon we had Manasquan Fishing Club aboard and the Sea Bass were flying!

Monday June 17
Gorgeous Day on the water! Finally, a flat calm day. Picked at the Blues until 11AM. Billy from Philly was hi-hook with 6 Blues.

We have plenty of room tomorrow afternoon for Magic Hour. Wednesday we have plenty of room. See you aboard
Happy Fathers Day!
Well the Sloppy weather we have been experiencing all week continued today. The winds are supposed to diminish this evening leaving us with a very nice looking Monday. Today we picked away at Sea Bass & Ling! For those who had sea leg and hung at the rail, they had a nice catch. We had a very nice group aboard from Wounded Warriors! Joining the group was longtime customer Dolly Harris. Dolly is now wheelchair bound but we got her aboard and she had fun catching her first fish aboard the Queen Mary in over 3 years. Below is John and son Bevin from Bristol, PA, what smiles from Father & son!
Weekend June 8 & 9
Today’s pool winner!!Saturday was another very good day with the Jumbo Blues all on jigs. Sunday saw spotty action, nothing close to what we had Friday & Saturday. We had some shots at them. The fish were in very shallow water so the ratio of hooked to boated was terrible. Monday is a NO GO due to rough seas and rain. We will have enough to sail Tuesday. Wednesday looks to be the nicest day of the week!!
See ya aboard
Friday June 7
SUPER ACTION for Blues up to 16 pounds! What a difference a day makes. After a terrible day Thursday the Blues showed themselves a
early and it was game on! Didn't matter what type of lure you used it worked. Who knows how long this wonderful action will last, so pack up your stuff and come on down. If planning on a weekend, Sundays are usually less crowded vs Saturday
Wednesday June 5
Tuesday June 4 SUPER JUMBO BLUES TO 17 pounds on jigs! Magic Hour finally produced some nice Striped Bass too. Glorious day to be aboard today, all the blues one coupd shake a stick at during the day trip. Chuck Noona won the pool with a 17 pound Bluefish. The Magic Hour produced Stripers to 28 pounds. Most were caught on the White Shads. Fireman Pete started us off with the largest bass of the evening. Jim Steel wasnt far behind with a pair of nice fish. Finally some bass to report. Wednesday looks windy, Thursday should be a great day after 8am its supposed to clear and be calm all day & night. Our Thursday Magic Hour Striper trip is very light, so take advantage of great weather and a light crowd. See ya aboard
Monday June 3
Nate Wollman had his group aboard for an early start this morning! We lucked into some good action with smaller Blues to 3 pounds all on jigs until 10:30am then finished the day with Sea Bass and one ofthe Best Dolphin Shows I have ever seen anywhere. Great Day! Tuesday looks BEST for weather! The Wednesday Gang is coming down on Tuesday as WEdnesday looks windy from the South. Late week is forecasted Nice!

Saturday June 1 Super Blues & Sea Bass
Friday May 31

Friday is looking best! This weekend we are Sold Out Saturday morning. Still room on Sunday morning as well as the Magic Hour Striper Trips
Tuesday May 28
Kevin Musto had his students from the Cooking Class he teaches as part of the Brick School system aboard today. The day started off gorgeous, flat calm and sunny and warm. The fishing was not so bright as the weather early. As the weather turned for the worse the fish started to snap and the kids all were happy catching lots of Sea Bass and some Ling from 11am to 1pm. The Blues and Bass popped up pretty good the past two days for a little bit both days. I will head that direction tomorrow in hopes we run into the Big Blues and maybe a few Stripers too! Weather looks very nice! See ya aboard
Monday Memorial Day
What a difference a day made!! Weather was nice for a second day in a row and the fish were biting for the first time in a few days. Picked Sea Bass and ling around the boat all day. Plan on Wednesday! Tomorrow weather does not look good. See ya aboard
Sunday May 26
Gorgeous Day on the water!! Super Dolphin show was the highlight of the day. We picked at Sea Bass here and there but it wasnt great action by any means. We had a fair amount of keeper Sea Bass but i would have liked more action all around. Monday looks calm and nice too. First time in a while we may actually get 2 nice days on the water in a row. See ya aboard
Friday and Saturday May 24/25
Tough overall both days! Very windy on Friday for KA Appliance company charter. We picked at the Sea Bass but not a ton of action. Saturday was more of the same with a handful of Blues too. Sunday weather looking ok Monday Best of the weekend
Wed May 22
Much Better Day Wednesday! Lots of Sea Bass plus a late day surprise with some nice sized Jersey Jumbo Blues! The Wall High School Fishing Club was aboard today and they crushed it! Most of the kids are good fishermen and they knew how to jig sea bass. Diamond jig on bottom with a teaser above. Some had limits many were close along with lots of action! We jigged some nice Blues late in the day on our way in.
Tuesday May 21
The predicted Northwest winds 10-15 was a steady 20-25 all day and from the North. Fishing again was tough most of the day. Too Rough to look around where I caught some Sunday and read many on Monday. I anchored up around 11am and we picked at the Sea Bass mainly shorts before heading back to the inlet to hope for some Blues on the outgoing tide. The move paid off with us picking some Blues to end the day. Weather Wednesday supposed to very nice! Hope to see ya aboard
Another tough day. We read the fish but couldnt get them to bite! Picked at the Sea Bass late. Lets hope the NW wind tomorrow gets them going
Sunday May 19
Better today! Found an area of Stripers but they had lockjaw! We did manage to get some bites and boat a handful to 30+ pounds! 9” white shads and the 6oz diamonds are what got the bites. I spent another couple hours searching in the area in hopes we could get another shot an them but only managed one more nice Striper! Ken & Marion using 9" white shads with 4oz. heads both had a nice fish. The other bites were on Diamond Jigs. WE finished the day jigging some Sea Bass and a couple Blues. Overall not good enough but better, so heading in the right direction anyway. Weather: Monday not so great, Tueday & Wednesday Best late week could be nice too but too far away to really tell
Saturday May 18
Always want to know how the fish know to turn off when we have a nice crowd aboard? Finally a real nice weekend day, lots of folks around and fishing was slow. Again a handful of Blues with a sprinkling of Sea Bass. Beautiful day at least. Sunday looks nice too. See ya Aboard
Friday May 17
Tough day overall. Only manages a handful of Blues and the sea bass action was not good either. Windy conditions made it uncomfortable. Tomorrow looks much nicer. Let’s hope that helps the fishing!
Thursday May 16 some Blues early then a nice pick at sea bass! Very Nice Day
Very nice action first few hours on the Blues to 14 pounds! John Lahey won the pool. Stoney was hi hook with 9 Blues and Bob Gieson was right behind him with 7 Blues. When the acton slowed I ran off the beach and we picked at Sea Bass. Weather looking nice next bunch of days. Hope to see ya aboard!
Saturday May 11
Good Action with Bluefish to 17 pounds along with about 40 Boston Mackerel in the mix too. Andrew Ehala won the pool with a true Slammer Blue 17 pounder taken on a 9" white shad. We will be sailing Tuesday, Wednesday Gang will be down Wednesday and weather best of week for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday look good too. See ya Aboard
A very nice day made better with a nice shot of Stripers late in the day! We had a few nice shots and picked at Striped Bass to 25 pounds. Large Shads worked best but smaller shads and jigs produced as well. Was a very nice surprise after all the bad reports the past couple weeks. We will NOT sail Sunday due to the rough conditions forecast. Monday and most of the coming week looks nice. See ya aboard Monday.
Gorgeous Day on the water and great to see the regular customers who showed up for what they knew would probably be a boat ride. Unfortunately, it was a boat ride with a couple Boston Mackerel to show for the effort. We will try again Saturday. See ya aboard
MONDAY was our last day of the season! We had good action at times and many had a bunch of Stripers. Mary was Hi-Hook with 8 Stripers. Today we brought the boat to the boat yard to for yearly maintanence. We plan to start the 2019 season late April or when the Stripers & Blues show up!
Small group today enjoyed some decent action early. We picked at a mix of Keepers to Short size fish early and late. Weather looks good next couple days if you look at the hourly forecasts both Friday & Saturday will be dry most of the day. Fishing will not be afftected by the rain either day. Sunday the timeline looks like maybe we see a drop very early but probably all the rain will be before the sun comes up. Sunday overall will be nice with warm temps into the 60's on Sunday. Hope to see you aboard
Great weather once the Giant Swell left over from the storm last night subsided. Sunshine temps around 55 and a nice sea after 10am. Fishing never got going and action was slow all day. We did have one ok drift picking at short Stripers and loosing a keeper at the net. Otherwise we caught a few the rest of the day. Weather looks tough for Monday, so NO SAIL Monday.
Another good day with lots of action! Many short fish were released, high hook had over 10 fish. Rich & Andrew Ehala had wonderful day, combining for 17 Stripers to 25”. Tom won the pool with a 29” fish had a slot and released a bunch. Sunshine with temps in the mid 50’s and Westerly winds should make for a very nice Sunday! See ya aboard
The weather warmed up a bit and the fishing did too! Lots of keeper and slot size Stripers to go along many short bass. A bunch of limits were achieved. Pool winner was 36” fish caught by Luke 12 years old pictured below. Matt also pictured with 2 fish, had his limit early and totaled 5 fish to 18 pounds. All jigs again with chrome A-47 & 67 jigs working best. Weather warms into the 50’s tomorrow and will be a nice day until late in the afternoon. The rain will not bother you until almost dark Saturday. Sunday looks to be the last real NICE DAY of the year. Sunday forecast is for calm seas plus temps in the mid 50’s and abundant SUNSHINE. Remember we will fish thru next Sunday Dec 2 this season. Fishing is very good so COME ON DOWN!!
Have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!Unfortunately, the brutal cold temps plus the hard wind will keep us in tomorrow. Wednesday was the BEST keeper day of the week! Lots of short fish mixed in along with some Blues. Father & son Todd and little Ben, 9, from West Caldwell combined for over 15 fish. They had their limit of Bass, shorts bass and some Blues. Pool winner was 35” and little Ben just missed winning with pool with. 34.” fish. Friday and weekend look good! SEE YA ABOARD
Had a few good shots at the Bass early and again around mid-day. Weather looks Sunny and temps in the 40's for Wednesday. See ya abord
Another FINE DAY of Striper fishing! We picked at Stripers all day, many short fis, a good bunch of Bonus tag size fish, along with some keepers mixed in as well. Pool winner went about 20 pounds. Again it was all on jigs A- 47/67 plain best. Weather looking good again for Tuesday, Cloudy and Calm with sun by late morning. It's supposed to get very cold for late week, so come on down before the cold. Remember, Tuesday is Marathon Day 6:30am departure.
Nice day on the water! We built on yesterday’s totals with lots of short Striper action at times and 10 keepers to 25 pounds. Again, everything was on jigs. Monday’s Weather looks SUPER! If your planning on Tuesday you may want to think about Monday or Wednesday instead, as Tuesday looks like rain. See ya aboard!
Saturday produced some decent action totaling over 65 fish but nothing like before the big storm. The big body of large fish we had Wednesday I guess moved. We found lots of shorts with a few slots and more than a handful of larger fish to keep. All Stripers, all taken on diamond jigs and Mac Daddy lures, some on deadly dicks. Weather looks SUPER FOR SUNDAY & Monday. See ya aboard
WHAT A DAY!! Best jigging for Big Bass in a long time. Certainly, the best day of 2018 season for Stripers. Boat limit of under 43” fish by 9:45am. Tossed back countless 30"-42" fish. We did have a few folks with the 3 person limit & many with a slot plus a under 43” keeper. SUPER DAY all on jigs with 4 & 6 ounce diamonds and MacDaddy jig best. Too Bad we loose Thursday to another Noreaster 😫😫😫😫
See ya this weekend when the weather looks very nice for November
Finally a plan came together! A nice bite today on the live bait for QUALITY STRIPERS! Jim Steel shows off a whopper in the first pic. We lost as many or more than we have boated. Tuesday looks like CRAP,NO SAIL! Wednesday looks good and we will depart at 6:30am. Moving the marathon to Wednesday.
See ya aboard Wednesday 6:30am
After some nice Stripers to 42 pounds boated on Wednesday. Thursday turned out to be a complete dud for us. Friday was a NO SAIL due to aother round of shit weather. Weather is clearing and will go westerly for the weekend into early next week. Saturday will be Blustry but we WILL sail. Sunday into mid-week look very NICE!
Great Day!! All the JUMBO Blues you could want plus a few 30+ pounds Stripers found on the way home. NO SAIL MONDAY & maybe Tuesday as well. We will move the Marathon to Wednesday this week
A few JUMBO STRIPERS today! Stripers are here so I hope to see yo aboard soon. Friday is a NO SAIL too rough, the weekend will be fine with Sunday nicer than Saturday
Jeff had this 45" taken on a live Bunker
Long Day, fishing sucked, but there were good signs. Tons of bait, at times very good bird life and I did read some fish here and there. Trollers all did get some but the jigging boats had it tough. The Golden Eagle did get 3 nice Stripers late so maybe we get lucky tomorrow. Weather looks Fantastic for Wednesday and Nice for Thursday too. Hope to see ya Aboard
Friday was full of variety! Blues, Alby, Bonito, Porgy & Sea Bass
We will not sail this weekend due to the strong Noreaster Saturday and Sunday will be leftover seas to calm for next week.
The whole week is looking promising and weather for Tuesday's Striper Marathon looks very good right now
Our last tuna trip was a bust. Looked very fishy early though. Before the sun was up the bait was thick and the crew was able to catch many Anchovies & small mackerel. With tons of bait I thought our chances were very good. Guess NOT! We did get some Albys. Weekend looking like a blowout, so come tomorrow or Friday. Friday looks to be the nicest day of the week.
Weekend was OK Saturday and very tough on Sunday. Saturday we had Albys and lots of Blues late ending up being a nice day. Sunday the wind came on and never backed off but only grew harder and harder. Monday we had no particpation. Tuesday we are Inshore Tuna 4am departure. Thursday we are privately chartered Wednesday, Friday, Sat & Sunday is regular 7:30am to 2:30pm
Very Good Action today for Alby, Blues and Porgies! We will be sailing Saturday & Sunday
Friday we WILL sail!
We did not sail Wednesdy or Thursday due to gale force winds
Had a very nice group of guys aboard today! Milwaukee Tool, Rustoleum, Grainer & Cool Breeze sponsered the trip. We departed around 8:30am hoping the wind would back off as predicted and around 11am the wind did begin to drop, by noon it was nice. Blues and Porgies bent the rods and kept all the folks busy. Great Day! Wind is gonna honk Wednesday so NO SAIL Wednesday. Thursday not much better. Friday is the next NICE DAY. Plan on Friday if you want to fish this week. Sunday best if your thinking this weekend
Monday, back to crap conditions after a flat calm day on Sunday. We had lots of 3-5 pound Blues before the sun came up. Those who wanted Bluefish easily had their limits before the sun came up. Once the sun was up the sea bass and porgies bit. The seas built quickly mid morning and after a couple of the right ones hooked up and lost. We headed for home before the sea became too crazy. We read fish and lost a couple. Let’s hope weather provides for next Tuesday’s final Tuna Trip.Open boat 7:30am departure the rest of the week. Thursday & Friday looking better than Wednesday. We are privately chartered tomorrow,Tuesday.
What a difference a day makes! The wind flopped out last night and seas were calm. A variety of fish came out to play today. Blues, Bonito, Albacore, sea bass, Porgy plus a nice 43 pound Tuna! Jigs best for the topwater species. I hope to get Mondays Tuna trip in! 3AM departure lets hope the wind holds off

After watching Marty boat 6 nice Bonito on the pink Mac Daddy lures he bought one. In the last hour he boated a few nice Bonito & couple more Alby too.

Saturday was slower action for Blues. We did pick at fish early but it slowed up to a stand still late morning. I took a ride and found an area of smaller 1-3 pound Blues and we picked at them for a while and got in late. Ken Fuchs was Hi- hook with over his limit of 15 Blues. a few limits were had but most had a few to over a handful of Blues with some Macks, Porgy and a couple Albys too. Weather looking better for Sunday & Monday, hope to see you aboard
Success!! Great Day and a little luck turned into a wonderful trip. Please, a crew members personal custom conventional rods w/ an Okuma 4/0 reel walked off the boat. If someone grabbed by accident please give a call. We boated a bunch of yellowfin tuna to 50 pounds mainly on bait but some on jigs. We lost more than we boated. Plus, we had some shots at Mahi-Mahi including a few real slammer Mahi-Mahi’s. Tomorrow’s Bluefish Trip IS CANCELED due to forecasted rough sea conditions. However, the WEEKEND is looking SUPER. COME ON DOWN!! Bluefish to 8 pounds has been good all week with some Bonito, Alby & Porgy in the mix. Next Tuesdays Tuna trip currently has 8 open spots left.
Very nice action today Early & Late for Blues to 7 pounds plus a few big Bonito and Porgy mixed in. Very Nice Day! Remember weare Tuna fishing Thursday and back at the Blues Friday thru Monday 7:30am departures. Weekend looking very nice
SUPER Jigging for Blues up to 8 pounds! WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES! Sunday stunk after great action Saturday. Monday wasnt as hot as Saturday but it was darn good! Mike Popchak drove up from Maryland and it was worth the drive! He had well over his limit of 15 keeping some and releasing others. Stoney even had a whole bunch! Tuna trip for tomorrow is canceled and moved to this Thursday when the weather looks better to get offshore. We do have 8 open spots for Thursday Tuna trip departing midnight and returning late afternoon $200 per person
Wow, what a difference a day makes! Ususally this is a positive thing but not today. Yesteraday was old time Bluefishing today not so much. We did pick fish but far from good. Read lots of fish but the gill net boats wrapped the whole area we fished Saturday. This spooks the fish and they do not bite. Lets hope tomorrow is a different story. Weather looking nice again for Monday. We have 1 open spot for Tuesday Mid-Range tuna trip departing 12AM Tuesday early morning returning late afternoon Tuesday
SUPER ACTION! Fast paced Jigging for mixed sized Blues to 8 pounds. Most were 4-6 pounds with the ocassional bigger one mixed in. Bert was the lucky one boating a nice Mahi-mahi, limit plus of Blues and an Alby too. Weather was outstanding and continues wonderful Sunday & Monday.
Weather been DOG SHIT since Sunday afternoon. We had no participants in point pleasant Wednesday morning for any boat to get out of Manasquan Inlet. The Belmar boats did get out and both caught some mixed sized Blues. We will sail Thursday Bonito/Alby trip but we will depart at 7am instead of 6 due to the forecast. Hope to see you aboard!
Picked well at the Blues this weekend with an exotic or two mixed in. Sunday produced but it was a soggy one. We will NOT sail Monday & the Tuesday tuna trip is canceled due rough sea conditions. Thursday & Friday look best this week.
SPECTACULAR ACTION, BEST OF THE YEAR!! Bluefish to 6 pounds with a dozen Alby mixed in today. Super action all day with a boat limit of Bluefish by 11am today. Smaller 2oz plain diamonds worked best with fast retreive. Weather looks very nice for Saturday and calm with clouds for Sunday, perfect fishing weather this weekend. Enjoy some nice fall like weather and hot fishing action! Come on down. Nice video of todays action on our facebook page
Tough day with some action! I anchored up and we instantly had 3 fish on all Bonito. Unfortunately, that was the best of it. Lots of small Blues kept folks busy the first hour and if you wanted porgies there were plenty as I got 15 keepers in short order, but it was a Bonito/ Alby trip so I moved around quite a bit and found one here and there plus Bernie's large Kig Mackerel that won the pool. Blues cooperated for the Bluefish fleet today and we will head that way tomorrow as Friday weather looks very nice! See ya aboard
Fine Day Lots of Action and Variety again! Thursday looks good for the Bonito/ Alby/Mahi trip tomorrow 6am open boat no resrvations required
Fun Day for the Shore House Charter with Lots of variety. No Sail Tuesday due to iffy weather. Wednesday thru Saturday all look nice. Remember Thursday is a Special Bonito/Alby trip and departs 6am Thursday only. Otherwise we are normal 7:30am Wed, Friday Sat & Sun this week
Nice Surprise today! Many Spanish Mackerel mixed in with small Blues to 2.5 pounds. Bert’s was by far the largest Spanish Mackerel we have caught aboard the QM in many years.

If you are interested in Oct 2 or 9. Please pre-purchase your seats as they are almost full too. It will begin to calm Tuesday. Wednesday we are privately chartered so please join us Thursday & Friday. Hopefully the next system doesnt affect us like these past few days. I hope to see lots of Blues, Bonito & Alby after all this weather and things get back to normal
Choppy Conditions changed the action but still overall it was OK/good today! Those who put the effort in did well those who didnt struggled. Hi-hook had over 25 Blues. Weather looks very iffy for this weekend and Sunday is most likely canceled if the forecast holds. Saturday will probably be a game time decison. Either way it will not be calm, so if you want a nice calm day choose another time to join us.
Another Good Day of Bluefish Action with variety mixed in!! Fluke, Triggerfish & Bonito
SUPER AGAIN TODAY FOR BLUES TO 6 Pounds

Awesome Day! Best ever Mahi-Mahi fishing on a day trip! Tons of Mack’s and about 40 blues to 4 pounds plus a few Bonito. This will not last so get down now if you want a crack at them. Light spinners with small shiny jigs, bucktails and split-tails worked best even swim-plugs
Holy Crap, we actually had a nice weekend! Fishing wasn’t as hot as Saturday but we picked at Blues throughout the day along with a bunch of Bonito! The experienced anglers did much better today than the novices. Burt & Gary both had over 20 Blues each as well as a Bonito or two. Plenty of fish around but harder to catch today.

Now it is GORGEOUS and supposed to stay that way thru Tuesday afternoon. Fishing was slower today with lots of current and I could not get out to where I wanted to get to early this morning.

SUPER WEATHER & Sea Bass action today! My father Charles was aboard and stopped fising at noon. He said his arms were weary from reeling all the double header sea bass! The weatherman had everyone scared to even think about heading to the shore today as the town, all the boats and the beaches were empty. The past two days may have been the nicest of the summer. Please remember the Tropical System hype is FAKE NEWS unless the system is gonna makea direct hit. Flat calm and fishing was SUPER ACTION the past two days. Ryan and Lonnie combined for over 120 Sea Bass keeping their limit and throwing back many keeper sized fish.
GREAT DAY, Look how calm it’s is! First pic is John LaMond and family. Great Action most of the day. Sea Bass were non-stop mixed with Porgy, Triggers and we fought a huge Sand Bar Tiger Shark for over 30 minutes too. Weather continues wonderful Into the weekend! See ya aboard!
Super Weather & Action for Sea Bass to 17”! Tons of action all day with a boat limit of Sea Bass. Ken pictured below had 5 keeper size fish along with 47 short sea bass and won the pool for the largest fish.
Very Nice Day! Super weather & tons of sea bass action. Lots of keepers too
What a gorgeous day on the water for a change. We had very good action early then a lull mid morning. The action came back around noon but never as good as it was early in the day. The keeper ratio wasn't as good as yesterday but a most had a few to take home. If you're planning on joining us Fathers Day please be aboard early.
What a difference a day makes! Less Breeze made it possible to get off the beach to a few good spots and we picked away all day with Sea Bass and many keepers mixed in. Bert had his limit and many were close too. Fun, gorgeous day on the water for a change. Weather looks very nice for a weekend for a change. Hope to see you aboard!
Terrible Day all around! Lots of wind no Blues SUCKO!
Small group today aboard! The river didn't provide the action of yesterday so we heading for some Sea Bass and we had good Action most of the day. Lots of fish a nice amount of keepers plus some surprises too. Thursday looking NICE
A mix of Blues & Sea Bass for Mark Cancelmo's group. We had the Blues for a little in the river and around the inlet early. A few more up the beach and it was Sea Bass action when the Bluefish stopped cooperating.
Weather shaped up enough this afternoon to get Ken D'Andrea's charter out for some Sea Bass action and a little Striper time too. The Sea Bass action was slower than Sunday but the Keeper Ratio was much better. We spent the last hour of daylight trying for Stripers. I read the fish good a few times and managed to get a few bites and boat this Whopper Striper 46" on a Kroc. Many of the the bites lately have been on jigs. Weather really shaping up nice for the rest of the week. Sunshine, comfortable temps and Calm Seas. Hope to see ya aboard!
NO SAIL too crappy Weather looking nice rest of the week!
What a crappy day! Cloudy with light rain almost all day. This season is really shaping up to be a complete washout. We had lots of seabass action again but the keeper ratio keeps getting tougher each day as all spots are getting hit hard with the lack of Bluefish and Stripers many days. Better weather on tap after Monday so come on down and lets get this season rolling!!!
Had Larry Hand's Refridgeration Design Charter aboard this morning. With the lack of Blues yesterday and the great drifting conditions we put the effort into sea bass and it worked out well! Not fast action like yesterday but we picked everyplace I went and ended up with a nice catch. Some Blues were found late in the day. We will look for Blues first as usual Sunday and switch up if need be. See ya aboard
After maybe the best Bluefish action of the spring Thursday the Blues pulled a disappearing act this morning! We did had a handful early but the boat traffic was so bad that I couldn't even fish the area and had to leave. We took advantage of one of the nicer days this spring to drift for seabass & had action all day. Though the ratio of shorts to keepers isn't great most had plenty for a nice dinner. Please remember we are SOLD OUT Saturday June 9. Please join us Sunday instead
Very Good Action overall all day today! We started the day picking fish in the river until the tide dropped off we ran up the beach and found fish splashing, birds picking and we had some fast paced jigging for Blues to 6 pounds. Very nice day! Weather looking very nice for Friday. Hope to see you aboard! Please remember we are SOLD OUT this Saturday June 9 but have plenty of room Friday & Sunday
Good Action early again then it was all over for the remainder of the day. Magic Hour the Bass cooperated a bit better than the past few evenings
VERY GOOD JIGGING for 3-5 pound Blues!! Light spinners with smaller 17 plain jigs worked best. Magic Hour wasn't so magic tonight. Weather nice and CALM Wednesday. Hope to see you aboard!
No Sail due to very rough seas
What a Gorgeous Day!! Weatherman really screwed the whole Jersey Shore with a incorrect forecast. They really have no idea how much tourist dollars are lost on a blown forecast. Fishing was steady action with moments of fast action for 2-5 pound blues on smaller jigs. Unfortunately, weather goes to crap late tonight so NO SAIL SUNDAY due to rough seas. See ya aboard
Rain scared everyone away for the morning trip. Turned out to be a gorgeous day at the shore. Afternoon produced lots of Blues early. Later we had our shot at a bunch of Stripers but failed miserably to boat most. Scott did make the most of his opportunity though.
We did not have enough to sail due to the terrible forecast but the days were actually not bad at all. Blues were jigged well today by the one boat in the fleet that was able to get out. Weather will be calm and mainly dry for Friday. Hope to see you aboard Friday.
Very Nice Day! Super weather & tons of sea bass action. Lots of keepers too
No Sail today due to inclement weather! We WILL SAIL Monday morning when the seas calm and a cloudy dry day with maybe a little sun by mid-day. See ya aboard
The Blues popped up late and we were lucky enough to be the only party boat close enough to get in on the good action Saturday around noon. We picked at Sea Bass, Ling & Flounder. A big thanks to Capt John of the Kraken! He was headed in from his half day trip and saw the birds and fish splashing and was kind enough to let me know. Quick Action on jigs lets hope this is the start of something!
Great weather again! The fishing well thats a different story. The Blues & Stripers were scarce again. We did get a handful of Blues early to start us off. After that is was a struggle. We spent a good portion of the day scratching a catch of Sea Bass
With a small group aboard many who rarely fish the ocean. They opted for action over the very slow Striper and Blues yesterday morning. We had limits of Sea Bass along with superb weather. Great Day!
Tough fishing Continues! Great weather makes it easier to take at least
Sunday provided the best fishing of 2018 Unfortunately, today wasn't more of the same. We did manage a handful of Blues. We saw them and I read them but they didn't cooperate. Hopefully they do tomorrow!!
After our best day of the season yesterday. Monday was back to slow fishing. We did manage a handful of Blues. I read fish so let's hope they cooperate tomorrow. Only 5 open spaces left for this Thursday's Magic Hour trip
First nice day in a while and the Fishing was actually pretty good this morning! Lots of Blues to 8 pounds mainly on jigs. Weather is here the fish are too. Come on Down!
What a Great Start! We were able to make enough bait and the small group made the best of the bait we had. We caught on Live & Dead Bunker, Poppers & Shads. Fun Evening aboard the Queen! We have plenty of room on both Tuesday & Thursday Magic Hours this week. Call me to reserve your space 732-996-2579
Still slow fishing as hoping for nice weather and calm seas together. We will start the Magic Hour Stripers this Sunday and still have 6 open spots. We are trying to sail our 7:30am trips everyday weather permitting. See Ya Aboard
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!
Not enough to sail as weather just not good and fishing still slow.
Water frozen and lifeless today. We will wait another week to try again
We started our season with a very nice day to be on the water. That was about the only highlight. I saw no bait or signs of any life at all. We will wait until Friday May 11 to try again. Water needs to warm a bit more. Hopefully the fish show up soon! See ya aboard
Happy Easter and Passover
We had a booth at the Saltwater Fishing Show in Edison a couple of weeks ago. It was nice seeing so many familiar faces. The Spring has yet to arrive so far and getting the boat all ready has been a chore as we need some dry warmish days to get her all ready to bring back to the slip. I plan on starting April 27 only if there is something to catch. Other boats are starting and you will be disappointed if you go too early. Freeze your ass off and catch very little until the water temps are right. Temps need to be in the high 40's to see any action at all. Hope to see you aboard
Met a bunch of the Wednesday Gang for lunch yesterday. Great to see familiar faces and to catch up! Spring will be here before you know it and rods will be bending. See ya aboard late April
Great Day to Wrap up the 2017 season!
Beautiful weather and Hot Action with Strtipers to 31"
We were able to keep a few and add some Bonus fish but most were short and released for another day! Hi-hook had over a dozen Bass with many folks in the 5-10 bass count. Thanks Again for your patronage! Hope to see you aboard next season
Very Nice ACTION for smaller fish plus slots size. Many folks had 3+ bass with diamond jigs working best! Tomorrow, Monday Dec 4, WILL BE our last day of the season. Weather looks very nice 50's and calm with sunshine! Hope to see you aboard. WE WILL DEFINITELY have enough to sail!
Very Good Morning for the Nutanix charter! We picked at Bass well until 10am with most fish in the 27"-33"range. Shads and diamond jigs worked well. Uncle Stoney was aboard and had 3 nice Stripers on a hammered diamond. Weather looks Super for early December this weekend. Hope to see yo aboard!
Best Striper Action in a while! A few limits and most had a Bass or 3. Pete Ziemba was hi-hook with 5 Bass to 32" Good Day
Another good day of action with Blues to 13 pounds and some Keeper Stripers mixed in. Jim Steel had 7 Blues, John Lamond had a bunch of Blues and a nice Keeper Bass. Herb won the pool with a slob Bass caught on a diamond jig
Very Good Blues along with some Stripers mixed in. A-47 plain worked best Nov 27 Better than yesterday. Steady improvement the past couple days. Early leave 6:30 tomorrow Tuesday. George "the weatherman" won the pool with a 36" Bass taken on a large chartreuse Mojo.
Today was much better than the past couple! We had some action with Bass and Blues mainly late in the day. We only threw back one short Striper and the others were all quality fish. Tomorrow looks good as does most of the week. See ya Aboard
Lots of fish out there for the trolling boats but very difficult again for boats who can't troll. Capt Hack was Back as we caught Jack today. Can't say it any more truthfully than that! Read fish watch trollers get many but we couldn't get a sniff today. Maybe with the good Westerly winds tomorrow they will snap like they should. See ya aboard
Tough Again! Rode all over the ocean to find very little. A few Blues and Bass all day
No Good we never found the hungry fish just a handful of nicer size Bass. Sam won the pool with a 20+ pounder. I read fish all day but hard to catch.
Very Good first few drifts then it got slower and slower. Hi-hook had 8 fish
Good Early morning action! Produced lots of shorts with a few keepers and slot fish mixed in. Once the hard Southerly winds kicked in around 10 it was basically over. Pic below is John Lamond showing off his Pool Winner caught on a Gold 47 diamond jig. West winds tomorrow should have the Bass back on the feed! Nice day on tap for Wednesday. Slight chance of an early morning shower before 8:30am. Don't let a little chance of early rain ruin a perfectly nice day. See ya aboard
Cold & Breezy with Action all Day! I had many patrons with 5-10 Bass but many only kept one. Many short fish kept people busy on jigs and shads. Gold or silver A-47 & 67 were best and the shads produced as well for those who could find the bottom in the heavy winds. We will sail Tuesday Marathon 6:30am, but if your schedule is flexible, Wednesday 7:30am leave will be the nicer day
No Sail too rough at least Forecast for Saturday was rough but turned out to be OK. I want to come back as a weatherman my next life LOL
Another Fine Day! Action was not as fast paced as we picked at fish through the day. Quality size Stripers some on Shads & Mojos others on snagged Bunker. No Sail this weekend due to high winds
Good Action Continues! We started with a bang! Today was very good to start and terrible to finish. Jigs, Krocs, Shads & Mojo's all produced when the bite was on early this AM. As the morning progressed we picked fish here and there but it was all over by 11AM. The tide dropped out the sun came out and the winds started to howl. This the fish did not like! We a very nice catch and many had their limit. A-47's plain again worked best overall. Remember we are chartered Friday. Weekend Weather, Sunday is Best as Saturday could be a blow out
Another Fine Day for Striper Action! Though they were not jumping in the boat like yesterday. Many had their Limit of under 43" & a bonus fish. Frank Vavino had 5 fish to 32" Bill & Paul each had a Keeper and a Bonus. Bill Holden the Patriarch of the Wednesday Gang won the pool with a 35" fish and added a few others. Jigs again best, but the Shads and Mojo's did hold their own. We will sail Thursday. Fishing is HOT so Come Get SOME!
SUPER ACTION for Stripers! Simply Awesome action on A-47 jigs gold and chrome plus shads worked well too. Retired fireman Pete said it was his best day jigging ever. He landed over 28 Stripers, won the pool with the 36" he kept along with a 27" bonus fish. All the others were released. Pete was using a plain A-47 hammered jig. Full Boat Limit before Noon is makes for an extraordinary day! We will fish Wednesday & Thursday, reminder that this Friday we are privately Chartered. Hope to see you aboard!
Went the wrong way! It happens now and again and unfortunately will not be the last time. We did manage a few but still kicking ourselves for getting sucked the wrong way. Tomorrow we will hope for better results
Better today! More fish and warmer temps. Tons of boats making it tough but we picked some mixed sized fish. Again it was not enough for the big crowd we had but we tried our best and many got one
COLD COLD COLD today! WE couldn't believe how many boats were out in this cold weather today. We caught some nice Stripers but not nearly enough for the crowd we had. Plenty of fish around and weather looking very nice Sunday & Monday. Hope to see you aboard
Blustery Conditions made it tough to drift and present baits and lures yesterday. Drifting over 2 knots in the heavy winds we did manage a few and lost some others! All nice size keeper fish though. Weather gets better by mid-day Saturday when the winds will drop and the temps get back to normal
Picked at the Stripers on a mix of lures Shads, Jigs & Krocs all produced! Stripers are here so Come On Down
Winds have calmed and we WILL be Sailing Thursday! Hope to see you aboard
No Sail today. Weather will be too rough Tuesday & Wednesday. Thursday will be very nice and Friday a good day too. See ya aboard later in the week We never got to fish today. A passenger health issue as we approached the fishing grounds forced us back to the dock. As the weather was more rough than predicted we opted to have all the folks come back on a nicer day. We will NOT SAIL Monday. I'm keeping an eye on Tuesday. Thursday/ Friday appears to best weather this week.
Rough weather made me change directions this AM. We had a bunch of kids and family groups, so I opted to stay where it would not be a Ass Whooping and it pays off! Stripers cooperated at times and we ended up with a decent pick at mixed sized Stripers. Turned out to be a nice day with some action. We will definitely get out tomorrow so COME ON DOWN
HANDS DOWN THE BEST BLUEFISHING OF THE FALL TO DATE! JUMBOS TO 20 POUNDS WITH MOST 13-18 POUNDS. Diamonds plain or tails 47 size best! This weekend looks fishable but bouncy. I only took some video, so if you go to our Facebook page you can view the video. Hope to see you aboard!
No Sail today not enough participants. Friday weather looks Great! We will definitely have enough to sail Friday. Weekend weather, Sunday is the nicer of the two days. See ya aboard
Horrible first try for Stripers. Sounded like the Jumbo Blues cooperated though. I think we will try for Blues first and look for Bass late unless there is some better news. Hope to see ya aboard
No Sail again Tuesday. We will let the ocean settle and Start the Striper season Wednesday! Stripers will be first on the agenda for the remainder of the season. There were some fish trolled before the weather and it sounds like a nice area of fish was headed down the coast last week. I'm hoping this latest round of weather along with the westerly today will get the ball rolling! See ya aboard Wednesday, Weather looks Super for Wednesday and nice into the weekend
Big Storm no sail today or tomorrow. Tuesday should be a go but Wednesday will be nicest day of the week
Started Quick and we picked for a bit at the Jumbos on jigs. The wind came up fast and hard early. As the seas built the fishing dropped off. Those who dropped to the bottom stayed busy with seabass. Sunday & Monday will be too rough. Hope to get our first Tuesday's Striper Marathon in, but stay tuned for a weather update. See ya aboard
Picked at Jumbo Blues to 19.5 pounds on jigs. Best day in a while! Hope to see you aboard Saturday. Saturday looks very nice and Sunday will be too rough to sail. See you aboard Saturday
No Sail today. Thursday is fishable, winds will be west and breezy. Friday is the BEST of the week with Saturday a close second. Sunday appears breezy with Rain. Hope to see you aboard
No Sail too Rough! We will not Sail Wednesday too. Thursday and Friday look nice with West Winds. Friday is the best day of the week. See ya aboard
Still Lots of Fish around but getting tougher to catch each day. Sunday & Monday we concentrated on SeaBass more than Blues.
Lots of Fish Around but tough to catch. Read fish all day! Catching them was the rough part. We did get a good shot at Albys early before we ran off to look for the Jumbo Blues. Tons of fish but we only slowly picked at them on jigs. New Bob was Hi-Hook with 4 Big Blues. Bob was using a Gold Hammered jig. Weather looks great thru the weekend. Don't miss out on great weather in late October. Sea bass opens Sunday Oct 22, so we can keep SeaBass as we have been catching many while jigging for Blues.
No Sail too rough
Jumbo Blues have arrived in numbers after the Blow late last week. Saturday we read lots but the continued rough conditions made it tough. Sunday we were able to drift and jig and many had a bunch of Blues up to 20 pounds. Roy was Hi-Hook with 10 Blues. Saturday, Bert Dluhy caught the largest Blue in the past few years. His pool winner Saturday weighed in at almost 21 pounds. Weather looking better mid week with Wednesday looking best right now, and Monday worst. Hope to see you aboard
Very Nice Day! Lots of Action for Bonito & Blues to 3 pounds. Dave was hi-hook with a limit of Blues and 18 Bonito. His hot lure was a pink epoxy jig. Regular hammered 1.5 & 2oz diamonds caught well too. Weather looks tough rest of the week. We will sail again Saturday if the weather cooperates
We did not sail Sunday or Monday weather too rough
Nice weather continued but the fishing did not! We did catch cocktail size to 3 pound Blues and some Bonito mixed in on jigs. Some Porgy and seabass kept folks busy as well. Wasn't terrible but certainly not what I had hoped for. Due to the forecasted hard South winds Sunday and Monday we will NOT SAIL next couple days. Tuesday looks nice at this time
Great Summer like day in the water today! Lots of cocktail to 3 pound Blues with many Bonito, some Alby & Macks mixed in too. My Father, Charles, had 2 Bonito and a limit of Blues. We had many limits of Blues. Dr Bill fun with 12 Blues & 4 Bonito. Nice day aboard the New 85' Queen Mary! Weather Best Saturday this weekend
Rough Conditions made it tough this morning. The ocean began to calm around noon. The fish cooperates as it calmed and by days end we had a catch. Tom with a couple nice Bonito is pictured. Weather looks Superb for Friday. Saturday is best of weekend! See ya aboard
Good Action most of the morning for mostly 1-3 pound Blues on jigs. We did have some Bonito and Macks mixed in
Inshore Tuna Trip:
Action started fast this morning! We were not anchored up 2 minutes and we had nice fish hooked up on a jig. Line was dumping and the 60pound jigging set up was doubles over. We never saw the fish though. A few minutes later 2 more hooked up on jigs one was off in a couple of minutes but Jim Steel was still tight. We got a good look at Jim's before it unbuttoned from his 4oz Deadly Dick. What a shame! A Big Mahi swam up the slick and Jim was able to get a bait in front of him and he was off to the races. We picked at some Bonito a few Alby but never saw another tuna bite after first light. Jim won the pool with this nice Mahi
Fantastic Action today! Bonito were the mainstay with Blues, Macks and some Alby in the mix! Fun day aboard the New 85' Queen Mary! We are now sailing the new boat on a daily basis. Come on down check our new girl out. Tuesday is our Inshore Tuna trip departing 4:30am and we have a few open spaces. Come on down if you are interested
We did not sail the morning trip as it was still rough from the blow Saturday night. We did get out for the afternoon and crushed Bonito! Lots of 2-4 pound fish on jigs, along with Blues and some Albys mixed together. This weeks weather looks tremendous for early October! Don't miss out on what has been the best Bonito season in almost 5 years. These fish will leave by mid-October if not earlier. Hope to see you aboard Monday is forecast to be a top 10 kinda day. Come on Down
Wind came on harder than forecast and kept us from heading off the beach. We picked at 2-5 pound blues most of the morning on jigs. After noon it was slow. With the rough weather forecast tonight into tomorrow morning so we will NOT sail
Nate and his crew were aboard for the Maiden Voyage aboard the Newest Boat in the fleet. The All New 85' Queen Mary! Lots of Bonito mixed with Alby and Blues.
The first of our inshore tuna trips came close today. We found lots of bait and the right kind of water birds(shear waters. Pete Ziemba told me he lost count after many Mackerel and 20 Bonito. Pete also had a bunch of Albys too. Jim Steel one the pool with a nice Skipjack Tuna
Fantastic Action all day! Started with jigging Blues and tons of Macks with some Bones mixed in. Later it was Blues & Jumbo Porgy bending the rods and creating smiles all around! The Quality Catch of the Day was Mitch Sewell's nice Mahimahi he hooked up on a bucktail. Per fact weather and great Fishing
Seas finally calmed and the fishing came roaring back. Lots of Blues to jig along with all the Macks you could want and some Bonito and Jumbo Porgy too.
Happy Birthday to my father Charlie! First day back after days of rough sea is usually not the best. We did get more than I expected but not good enough. We had some Blues, Alby & Porgy. This Big Jack(Banded Rudderfish I think) won the pool
We WILL sail Saturday and Sunday this weekend and everyday weather permitting thereafter. Hope to see you aboard
Tropical System has screwed us this week. No Sail Thursday or Friday maybe not till Sunday if we are lucky. Hope to see you aboard when the weather is conducive. Thanks
AWESOME ACTION! Fast paced all day with Bonito, Albacore, Blues, Macks and lots of Jumbo Porgys. Bait was best but split tail Tsunami was deadly. If you got a bit past the top water species a Porgy was on it soon after. Too bad the NE wind and swell will shut us down for a few days. Hope we can fish Thursday See Ya Aboard
SUPER ACTION for Mackerel and Bonito today! Bait was non-stop Mackerel and jigs were best for the Bonito. Deadly Dicks & Swedish Pimples as well as Tsunami 5" Split Tails worked best for the Bonito. Calm weather & Sunshine for the weekend. Come on down now before the bad weather coming Tuesday. See ya aboard
Wed & Thursday No Sail not enough participants. We will have enough to sail Friday. Weather looks very nice Sunday and Calm For Friday into the weekend
Fun Day with lots of Blues and some Bonito
Very Nice Day! Lots of Action with Bonito, Macks, Ably and Jumbo Porgy. Weather look SUPER for Tuesday! We will have enough to sail Tuesday.
Rough Conditions kept me from heading offshore this AM. We went looking and found lot of Macks to keep it interesting. The winds have backed off this afternoon and forecast is Sunny and Calm Monday & Tuesday. Some of the Wednesday Gang will be down Monday, so we will have enough to sail, target is Bonito, Blues Alby & Macks See ya aboard
Nice Action for the Skepton Construction crew charter. We picked at Blues 2-4 pounds most of the day with the morning action best. Hands down the best catch of Bluefish on a day trip since June
First Special Bonito & Albacore trip was a success! We had a nice mix of Bonito & Albacore with more Bonito vs Albys. Jay & Joe Brooks had a great day with a nice catch of Bonito and some Albys. The Father/Son team showed many how to keep a bend in the rod. Swedish Pimples, Deadly Dicks, Diamond jigs, Tsunami Split Tails along with Bait all produced today. We are Chartered tomorrow Saturday Sept 9, so plan on joining us Sunday this weekend. See ya aboard
No Sail no participants
The Annual day after Labor Day Charter with All State Septic from Bangor PA. again was a huge success! The weather was rough but we were anchored up before the wind really came on. The Mackerel were thick and we picked many Bonito & Albacore to keep it interesting. Bruce won the pool with one of his 6 Bonito. Cole came out to fish the last day of Summer before School. He had 5 Bonito and over a dozen Alby. Small diamonds and other shiny lures worked best. Tsunami's are also starting to work. Weather looking very nice Thursday Thru the weekend. Come on down and enjoy the best Bonito & Alby action in a few years
Very Good Start with Blues on jigs then then the Mackerel took over with some Bonito & Albys mixed in. The current changed and the action slowed around 11AM. I took a ride and we jigged some Blues on most drifts. Nice Day!
Too Rough to sail the morning trip
Fast Action with lots of Variety Saturday! Blues, Bonito, Albys, Porgys & Mackerel were all plentiful at times. Monday will be best of weekend
Lots of North wind gave us a good reminder that fall is around the corner. I opted to stay in the shelter of land and keep it relatively calm instead of heading offshore and getting many seasick. We picked at mixed size Porgy with a good ratio of keepers. Turned out to be a nice day! Weekend looks tricky. Monday will be the nicest day. See ya aboard
Typical slow fishing overall after a big blow. We did manage some sea bass, fluke and some other stuff

Good Action with SeaBass & Fluke for the GPS charter in the morning. The afternoon produced lots of Mackerel. Rough weather predicted next few days. We may not sail
Rough Seas and fishing all morning for us. After 11am the seas began to calm and we found a nice area if Macks and SeaBass to finish the day on a fun active note. Remember we are chartered Sunday. Please join us another day! See ya aboard
Good Action for Mackerel overall! We did have some Spanish Mackerel, Bonito & some False Albacore along with lots of SeaBass and the occasional Fluke too.
