The fishing saturday was great! It looks like some more consistent catching of medium to large striped bass has started.
Today we had a rare all female charter today. We are glad to have been a part of our passenger Kim ‘s bachelorette party! This group of 5 lady fisherman landed 4 nice keepers stripers as well as about 2 dozen mackerel. The ocean less than calm with 6-8 foot swells but it was not uncomfortable. We drummed up our mackerel and made a quick trip back into the mouth of the river. We were fishing the incoming tide. On our very first drift a 35″ striper slammed a live mackerel. At the same time we landed a short one and threw that one back. We repeated the drift and got hit again we did so until we had 4 nice keepers and it was time to return to the dock. The fish were 35, 30, 29 and 28 inches .Another charter boat captain friend of mine fished the afternoon on the opposite tide and landed 15 keepers on his trip. Keeping only 6 as his crew limited out on the fish.
