Fishing Report:
My boat is ready to go for the new season but the wind and weather is not cooperating, so I decided to jump on a large head boat for a Codfishing trip today to wet a line. Conditions were wind against the tide, very hard to keep the boat on the wrecks, we were swinging all over. Wind blew, rain and fog was the weather for the day, tough fishing. But, I took this one home for dinner, and the pool money as well.

Fishing Report:
This photo was taken during a summer trip on a very warm day. I was fishing about 15 miles out of Manasquan Inlet on an artificial reef location. The codfish were there, they were hungry, so I invited them to dinner at my house.

After the first keeper was netted, we opened the in deck fish box and to our surprise, we forgot to bring the ice. The water temperature was too warm to keep the fish in the box without ice, and too warm to keep them in the livewell. So, doing what fishermen do sometimes, they had to go into the beverage compartment, since it held the only ice onboard.

In case you're curious, yes we still did drink the refreshments.

Cod on ice, makes dinner nice. Itching to get back out there and bend the rod. Doctor's and Physical Therapist, as well as my leg, say I'm still not ready yet.

A nice sunrise to start a great day of Cod fishing out in the Atlantic on the Big Jamaica. Although we didn't catch any keeper fish we still had a great time. The boat and crew were great as well and hope to get out there with them again soon!

Fishing Report:
Sorry , it's been awhile since my last report. I got out on Wenesday March 9th for a long over due wreck trip on a local head boat. After a hour and a half cruise, we were ready to fish. The Cod fishing was not so good. I did manage this one keeper Codfish caught on a pink curly tail grup/clam combo, it was the top hook on a high low rig. I must have caught 30 Dogfish, and a nice 4ft eel that I gave to another angler. Overall, only 3 other Cod came up, all shorts, 1 short Pollock, and a small mix of Skate, Pout, and Bergalls. It was great to be out on the water again and to have some nice filets for dinner as well. I promise to get back in the habit of posting reports again, gotta get my boat ready soon.

Fishing Report:
First, let me apologize for the poor quality photo, I'm still trying to get this "Selfie" thing down.

I wanted to get out on the water today, could not find anyone who had the day free, so I took the boat out solo.

I needed a change from drifting for Fluke and took advantage of the calm seas and ran out to deep water, 125 ft to be exact. I found some good rock piles and had at it. Codfish were chewing stuff up. Sorted through shorts and pesky Bergals to put two fat keepers in the box. All fish were caught on clams, some plain, some with chartruse gulp added, some with a red twister tail bait added. None worked better than the other, but they all worked. I pulled over 20 shorts, for awhile I thought I might not see any keepers, but 2 finally made the cut.

Pulled my crab pot up, which I usually drop in the river on the way out, nothing, one small Fluke, that's it. The crabs are gone from the river, along with the commercial crab pots. Getting good reports of crabs over in Barnegate Bay, that's where they all went.

All in all, it was a great day on the water, got away from everything and everyone today.
