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

Another Fun Day of Bonito & Albys!! Took a little to find them and get em going but by 9:45 the rods were bending. Johnny “Respect Knuckles” has his fill of Alby on the the 5” Split tails Tsunamis. 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. As the sea grew larger the fishing got better until it was time to head in. We will NOT be sailing Friday, but Weather looks good for the weekend! See ya aboard

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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

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 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
WE WILL SAIL TOMORROW!
