  1. Been fishing here in fair haven all week. Having good success in 100-150 fow. Best bite is in the morning and evening. Mid day the fish do scatter. But been finding bait balls in that 100-150 all day. Ventured out to 400 plus a couple days. Didn't mark much but did get a few out there. Have caught on meat rigs spoon and flies. Meat and spoons been best for me. Most fish have been in the teens but some big ones are there too. My partner boat got a 24 pounder this afternoon in 125 fow. Good luck.

  2. Very calm today with no wind. Did well in close early 125 fow down about 50ft. Then they spread out. Trolled out to 400. Didn't mark much and picked up a double around 250. They hit on just about everything, meat, flies and spoons. Got pretty hot out there with no wind so we came in.
  3. Went 3 for 5 today. Fish seemed spread out. Didn't mark very many fish. I fished 150-220 fow. Down 70-85 was where we hit them. Water temp there was between 42-45. Not the best day but we caught a few. I'll keep trying.
  4. Thanks Mr. Clean for the report. I also am heading up tomorrow to fish all next week. Will post reports on how we do and where we find them. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  6. Great!! Glad you had a good day. One of my favorite spots down that end of the Jersey shore.
  7. Fished alot along the Jersey shore but not in that area. Take a ride down to the cape may inlet. On the north side you can access the jetty through the wildlife refuge. I have fished alot around that inlet and have done well. Bluefish, flounder, false albacore and other fish. You can fish anywhere along the rock jetty. The best fishing is usually 1 hour before the high tide to an hour after. But fish really like that inlet and you can usually catch all day. Be careful though the rocks can get slippery.
  8. Absolutely beautiful there. I'm heading up in 2 weeks. When we were up in the spring my wife took a picture of me looking out on the water from the porch. Posted it with the caption Bill in his happy place. It truly is. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Where at the Jersey shore are you Gill t? What inlet are you fishing? This time of year the rays are everywhere with the water warm. We call them cape may flounder [emoji4] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Great job on boating all 5!! Like p3434 said I thought a triple was crazy. I had one in the spring and can't imagine keeping them apart and netting all 5. That's a day of a lifetime. Congratulations[emoji106][emoji106] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Sad news. Sorry for you and his family. We all have had good times and bad times fishing with our buddies. It's the memories and spending time together that keeps them in our thoughts forever. I also have an older fishing partner that is getting up their in years now and is slowing down. It breaks my heart that someday its going to come to an end. It really makes me appreciate our time together now. I have made friends with a family in the campground we stay at in the spring. I noticed this year their dad wasn't there this year. They said he had passed and they almost didn't come up this year. They then told me they changed their minds when they said dad didn't start us doing this as a family to stop when he was gone. None of our buddies would ever want us to stop doing what we love when they are gone. So for Bob and all our friends and family that are no longer with us. Let's keep fishing and making memories in their honor. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Thanks for the report. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. I have a 23' Chaparell with the same engine. Had the same issue. Like the others said, the Amish Outfitters beefy bags work great. They are well made and hold up well also.Get one for each side. Depending wind and current sometimes you only need 1. With 2 out again depending on conditions I can get down to 1.7 on the fish hawk. I think I have the 22 inch bags. The 22 or 28 inch should work fine for you. Good luck. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Nice job!! It's a great day when everything works. Makes us look like pro's. Congrats!! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. We got a late start today. Southeast wind then became southwest. Water was ok to about 30 fow or so then it got rough. Couple of missed hits then the kings were hungry. We got 5 in about an hour. 3 came as a triple. What a fire drill. Managed to get all 3. The one was 20 lbs. All were caught in 20-25 fow. Stinger and dreamwever spoons in a blue and green combination was best for us.That's when the wind really started ripping. Slow day turned into a great day.
