10/14/20 through 10/19/20

With persistent strong winds forecast for the canyons we've been spending our days on some of the best early fall black sea bass fishing in recent memory. Every full day crew is limiting out, some in astonishing time. Throw in the oddball fish like a 7# tog on Gulp or the Ribbonfish we've been encountering and no one is complaining about not being able to get out to the mahi. Even though mahi is...

Two of these days we were able to sneak out to the canyons and work the gear for some nice catches of mahi on light tackle. Ended one of the days back nearshore adding 40 black sea bass in with the mahi. The trip on the 10th found us hanging within 20 miles of the inlet on a 5 hour trip doing battle with the always fun false albacore.

Still fighting the offshore winds and somewhat spotty mahi fishing has seen us spending most of our time within 30 miles of  the beach absolutely hammering those super tasty and always fun Black Sea Bass. Limits have been seen every time, some in record time! Don't turn up your nose at this option. These fish are always fun and there's nothing more tasty out there.

Made a big run south to some gear in the Washington with Tigger and the guys looking for some mahi on light tackle. The bite was good and by late morning we have a nice jag of fish in the box. Decide to point toward home and stop at a wreck to try and add some sea bass to the box. First several drifts produce a god number of quality fish before they just turn off. Back in the slip with a box full...

Back in the saddle again after six days of constant wind and huge seas. I make a 50 mile run with a couple from southeast PA looking for some tilefish. What I thought would be a easy home run turned out to be anything but. After three hours and nearly a dozen different drops we only have 8 in the box. All quality fish but that number should have only taken 30 minutes at the most. We decide to...

Out with a crew from WV for a day of offshore action. Ran 53 miles toward some lobster gear only to find the lobster boat pulling away from the area after hauling all his gear before the pending big wind. So now its 7:30 am and we're already on "plan B". Worked out to 200 fathoms and nothing. Point the boat toward the 40 fa line and somewhere near 48 fa we get two big bites. One misses the hook...

09/08/20 to 09/15/20

A week of very unsettled weather found us sitting at dock way too much. Of those crews who did decide to go, many were forced to hang within 25 miles of the beach due to the offshore winds and waves.  These crews were rewarded with outstanding action on small mahi, false albacore and a few spanish mackerel. Our one canyon run on the 14th was a bust. The gear which had been there and holding fish...

Out for a day of offshore action with a crew of friends from my hometown area looking for something big. Spent the day working an area between 100 and 300 fathoms. While we didn't see any tuna we had several marlin encounters and by days end we had gone 2 for 4 on white marlin. Really should have been 4 for 4 but a leader failure and a thrown hook in the middle of a spectacular aerial display cut...

Ran east nearly 60 miles today looking to put these guys on some fish. Spent the first half of the day going ball to ball putting 27 mahi in the box all on light tackle. Joey sets the trolling spread and we almost immediately get a big bite on our shotgun line in the middle of a turn. I push the Cummins up hard but just can't take the slack out of the line and the fish throws the hook, suspect a...
