Story date:6/20/2015 1:22:00 PM

Location:Brielle NJ

Species:Bluefish

Had 4 other guys who wanted to do a night Bluefishing trip aboard one of our fine party boats here in NJ. We decided on the Friday night trip aboard the Big Jamaica out of Brielle, sailing from 7:30 pm to 2:30 am.

Well one guy bails out saying he has a date (he's married) not sure I'm buying that one. Next guy can't go, he's got a tummy ache last minute. Next guy, can't stay out past 12:30, okay Cinderella. Last. Tommy, he never bails out, so it was him and I.

Boat had about 60 fares aboard. We sailed for about 2 1/2 hours out to start fishing. Drifted awhile, no bites. Second spot, drifted a few Blues came in, only a few, bite died as fast as it came. Moved around all night. I caught one, Tommy none, only about 10 fish on the whole boat if that the whole trip. Captain kept us out late looking for fish, back at the dock at 4 am. Good thing Cinderella wasn't there.

It was a nice calm night, flat seas, the weather was very comfortable. It was nice to have a few cold ones with a good friend, and meet a few new ones. Not have to worry about being the captain, mate, and photographer was a welcome break as well. One fish that I'm going to try in the smoker, maybe they will be biting better next time.

About Fishin Dude
A little about me
Description:
I was born and raised in central NJ. My earliest fishing memories are catching Panfish with a cane pole, followed by Catfish with an old Zebco enclosed push button reel on a 3 ft pole using hotdogs as bait. Alot of time has passed since those days. I now travel to fishing locations by car, boat, or aircraft, instead of bycycle or a ride from my parents. I have met and swapped stories, tips, laughs, and tears with a variety of fishermen worldwide, from all walks of life, and made great friends too.
