Location:Manasquan Inlet NJ

Species:Fluke

Decided to hit the water today, despite the fact that I usually stay off the water during holiday weekends due to the crowd of boats, combined with both inexperienced, and some intoxicated operators, ( I can't call them Captains).

Started off south of the inlet in the Axel Carlson Reef , drifting various structure. A mixed catch of Fluke, both shorts and a keeper mixed in every here and there. A few Skates came by for some action as well. There were a ton of boats out there on the reef, and in the river as well. I headed back to the dock early to avoid some of the crowd that was sure to make a large parade through the inlet and up the river.

Ran into a friend that I haven't seen in awhile back at the marina. Laughed and joked and did a little chop busting. He went north out of the inlet today, no luck for him today, skunked. Invited him to come along with me next time. It was a nice trip and a great way to finish off the Labor Day weekend.

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.
