05/19/19 Out with a crew of friends who’s nationality spans the globe for a day of sea bass action. Weather was nice, current was crazy out of the north and the keeper ratio has dropped from about 3:1 to around 5:1. Lots of moves trying and fill the cooler for these guys throughout the day. When the bell finally rang we had 73 sea bass heading back to NY, 17 shy of our limit.
05/15/19 & 05/16/19 First two days of Black Sea Bass season found very similar fishing for both crews but fortunately Thursdays seas were much nicer than what we had to deal with on Wednesday, thank you Mr. weather man! Both days started off with way to many keepers but some fine tuning had our baits hitting the areas where more keepers seemed to be hanging. Just around 11:00 on both days we hit the magic number and head for the dock. Pretty good fishing since we mostly only had two or three rods in the water at any given time.
05/04/19 & 05/05/19 First two trips of the 2019 season found us looking for tog in moderately sporty seas. Saturdays bite was awesome and the crew of three of ours country’s finest (Air Force) hit their limit long before the bell range. Sundays conditions were similar but way more current and fairly dirty water which must have shut down the bite. Hit six different locations but just couldn’t find any hungry fish. Back in the slip with a disappointing 5 keepers in the box. One bright spot was Rodney’s 12 pounder!
