Had Friends Tell me they were getting alot of False and Skip Jack while tuna fishing... Nice to have good friend thanks Guys... So that was the plan Falsies and Skip Jack with a chance of a tuna sounded great to everyone... Headed out and on the ride out the wind just started honking more and More another blown forecast... was pretty dunpy when we got to the grounds... Read a little life... see big schools of rays... Put it on a drift and we few had Big false albacore and skipjack on pretty quickly burning up the light spinning rods. Went back and dropped the hook... started chunking spearing and sardines... Had Big falsies and a few Skip jack on pretty regularly... Then came a Real drag screamer our first tuna a keeper yellowfin... Nice dont remember the last time i seen them inshore but the Guys have Been catching the lately.... Few Minutes later another keeper Yellowfin... Both on light tackle Spinning setups... so it was an awesome fight that took some time!!! It Slowed up as we had a shark in the slick... hooked a skippy fillet and the shark was on... Battled him But he broke off... But at least he left us alone Back to doing battle with multiple hooks at a time on drag screaming Fat Alberts darting through the slick!!! A little lull ...Then the Yellowfin came through again!!! Hooked Up two more Cookie Cutter Yellowfins landing both... Again after a Timely battle on spinning gear... Now the albies are Going Crazy... Quick hooks Right near the boat... Then Willie Hooks Up with some bigger on his Spinning rod... The battle goes on for quite some time... before catching a glimpse... Def bigger... Gain some lose some...After 45 minutes and a great fight Willy Brings up a Nice 40lb+ bluefin Tuna on his spinning rod... Congrats Willy We had heavier gear on the boat but the guys stuck it out with the light stuff making it all even better!!! Ocean Flattened Out and the ride home was great!!! Tuna, lots of False Albacore and skips jacks...Nice day, GREAT LIGHT TACKLE ACTION!!! Good to see the tuna a little closer to home!!! Thanks Again Guys
  6. Had an all star cast... Smokey Joe, Greg Vongas, Matt Avid, Jigama Joe, Cool Hand Al and Will... Was Hoping the bite would bounce Back as we had No bites in the ocean the day before... Headed to the sticky stuff and was very happy when we caught our first Shorts and a Nice 4 lb Keeper!!! Never really could get a steady bite going but we would pick a keeper or short here n there along with a few shorts... Water was very dirty still but we were managing to put some keepers in the box despite the terrible bite... Stopped south on the way home in some cleaner water and we picked up 6 more keepers to 6 lbs... To our surprise a Barracuda grabbed a bucktail on the way up... Nice odd catch for 60ft in <acronym title="New Jersey"><acronym title="New Jersey">nj</acronym></acronym>!!! Congrats to Joe Main Monger Jigmaster for landing his LIMIT of fluke on such a slow day... Matt had 5 keepers, breaking his streak but he probably would have it if not for sabotage ... Everyone managed to get on the board and box a few!!! By days end our total catch was 21 keeper Fluke and a couple seabass... Not so Bad considering!!! Fun Day Thanks Again!!!
  7. Fri 8/14 Had Cool Hand Al, Ralphy aka Mr Okuma, Brian, Kevin, Arty and Kenny for another day of Fluking... Nj Bob was Nice enough to drop off a crumbcake in the Morning thanks Bob!!! Headed up to the SAME GROUNDS we been fishing for over 3 weeks... In the ruff stuff... Started Out with No drift sliding at .2 but we were able to picka keeper every time we stopped and a couple of shorts... Stayed with that till the Mugging became unbearable with boats stoping 20 ft on each side of us... Moved to a new area in it was More Of the same... keeper here keeper there shorts and some Lulls... We finally started to get some Current and the fish started to chew... Keep making shorts drifts working patches of keepers... some drifts we would get 2,3 or 4 some none But we Kept at it... Bucktails Def out fished bait today... with only a few fish coming on dragged bait... Congrats To Cool Hand Al who had his best day of the 2009 fluke year today... He was high hook with a limit Plus... Arty Caught his limit+ on Gulp... and Kenny Jigged Up his Limit as well... Way To hang with it Brian who came on strong at the end with some nice keepers ... Ralphy Banged a couple of keepers as soon as he switched Rods! So Some guys fared better than others today Depending on setups but we had a pick all day and grinded away at quality Keepers to fill the cooler! By days end the Cooler was filled with 36 Keeper Fluke the 6 man Limit... And everybody went home again with a jumbo bag o fillets On a side Note it is unbelievable how unprofessional Some Other Charter Capts Are... Fishing an General Area Is one Thing But a Belmar and Pt Charter Boat that circles around ya when you net a fluke and parks where you could cast your bucktail in his cockpit is Terrible and pathetic! Find Your own! Thanks again guys! SaT 8/15 It CONTINUES!!! Capt Wayne called me about an hour ago and the fluke cont to bite in da rough stuff ... Same area WE BEEN FISHING! Bucktails and Big baits!

  8. Had an Open Boat Trip Today... Greg Vongas, Smokey Joe Tom, Avid Matt, Jigama Joe, Tony Triggs and Tiny Tim... Headed right past the local grounds... back to the sticky areas that have been producing for us... And it seem the fishing just keeps getting better!!! Started Off in 30 ft and the first few drifts Had 5 keepers including smokey Joes Personal best at 6 1/2 lbs... Actually left that bite because the drift was so nice so i headed offshore figuring we could come back if we have to... Fished the sticky stuff in 60 ft and keepers started Flying 3, 4, 5, a drift...Some quality fish too... 3-7lbs!!!. Just kept on banging them one after another.... Bite finally slowed up a bit but we just found another patch and it started all over again... Once it was apparent we were going to limit the guys were nice enough to urge us to get in the game with them ourselves... Thanks Fellas... We picked em good just about all day.... Even me and wayne got to fish and limited out!!! Smokey Joe Beat his personal best from earlier in the day topping his limit with his new pesonal best a 7lber... We also deadsticked another 7lber 20 cranks off the bottom by mistake! Greg Tim Tony Joe and Matt all pulled some nice size fish Today... Days ya remember!!! So By 2:00 We Boxed Up our 8 MAN LIMIT 48 keeper FLUKE TO 7.5LBS... But in True Monger Fashion we sealed the cooler, put the net away, and cont to fish for a while and we counted what we released after that.... Before It was over we RELEASED 21 MORE KEEPER FLUKE (Never thought id be saying that) including 2 5lbers. So The Final Count was 69 keeper Fluke (Only keeping our legal limit) and 4 seabass... We had 19 fish that were from 4lbs - 7.5lbs...All the fish the guys are holding are between 4-7lbs Enjoy!!! Thanks again guys!!! A day to remember for sure 4 great trips in a row with limits ,hope it Holds Up!!! Got a handful of dates available for Charter...Season will be over before ya know it! Give a buzz to get out!!!

Headed right past the local grounds... back to the more productive sticky stuff... Had lots of action right away but it was very heavy on the shorts... Tiny Tim had 14 shorts before a keeper... but that would change. Started picking a few keepers with the shorts... Picking and Plucking keepers with shorts they slowly worked there way out to deeper water. Had a nice blast where every rod went of with fish landing 4 fish from 4-7lb. Kept drifting different rockpile getting some nice shots of keepers Cont to pick away at some nice fish until the day was done... Congrats to Scott kearny with personal best fluke @6lbs...

  10. Had an Open Boat Fluke trip today... 5 man crew again due to a cancellation. Avid Matt, Arty Berkman, Rich, Tom and Tom2 rounded out da Crew! Plan was to run back to the sticky stuff where we had 30 keepers yesterday... Got there and with all the wind and current the drift was unfishable... Got out of there. Headed to some of my fav inshore rockpiles a little closer to the beach and shallower... Drift was Much more manageable and the fish were hungry... It was great action, heavy with the shorts with shots of nice keepers Mixed in... Drifted around different piles finding new hungry ones on different lines... Pretty consistent for most of the day with a few Lulls. Matt Avid was first to his limit pretty quickly... Arty followed Right behind em... and Rich Tom and Tom Boxed some nice ones too. One of the Better days I seen inshore and shallow this year... Matt Avid jigged bucktails and had ones of the best days i seen someone have in a long Time def the star angler ... Arty did well with gulp and Tom Rich and Tom Dragged bait which also produced good. By Days end The guys Boxed Up the 5 man limit, 30 keeper Fluke and 14 seabass... No real Big fish the keepers were from 18-23in today But they were plentiful. Real fun crew, lots of laughs... Thanks again guys!!! 60 keepers in the last 2 Days for 10 guys, and a 10 lb kicker Fluke on tues... Great week of Fluking!!! Hope the action holds up! Dont wait We will have all fall to bottomfish but fluking will be over before ya know it!!! Give a buzz to get out
  11. Had Fins Bob, Boston Pete,Jim River Rat, PP&J John and Tom aboard For a marathon FluKing event(5 man Crew)... Just Like Both their Trips last year, plenty of big fluke for da coolers... Headed out to a stiff NNe breeze and to be honest was a little worried about fluking and our drifting condition today... Got to the grounds set up our first drift... Very Fast 1.5-1.8 but we did get a few bites and some shorts... As we made a couple more drifts the ocean and drift died Down... We starting picking patches of fish Keepers and shorts... After each patch would dry up... we would have to look for some More.... Picked and Plucked at some quality keepers, shorts and seabass... Bounced around and would get some nice flurries of keepers as well as having our times with no bites and lack of action.... The guys worked Hard and Bounced Jigs (all kinds) all day... The keepers began to add up nicely... Like last year Jim River rat was the first to his limit but the others werent far behind and Johny Boy Was hook with the Johny Jig staight from the workshop Petey had the Big Fish somewhere around 6lbs.Tom had the big humpback Seabass!!! Fished a Long day and Everyone fished hard...By the Days end the Boys Boxed up a 5 Man Limit of Fluke and 13 seabass... No giants but the first two rows in the picture are all nice keepers 3-6lbs over 20 in. As always Pleasure Have the BBS and Friends on board!!! Good Times!!! Thanks again guys Nice roll 3 trips with a big fish on now some limits!!! Hopefully aug will give up the good bite

During their Vacation At the Jersey shore the wanted to get out for a nice day on the water... And they couldnt have picked a better day... Weather was Great! Bill said They wanted a fun day some action and few fish for a BBq... We headed around 7:45 out to some local Bottom and Picked away at some Nice seabass along with loads of shorts... Bounced around a few spots and the action was the same on most... As Usual Girls Out Fish The Guys!!! Kaylee kicked there Buts with the seabass Music Cranking... Sun Shining... Fish Biting... Doesnt get no better!!! Real fun day on the water. At 12:30 We headed in and they were ready to go cook up some fresh Seabass. By days End the family of 4 Boxed of 30 keeper Seabass/ling...

  13. Had Smokey Joe charter the boat out For his Son Tuckers Birthday(which he shares with me ) along with Chris, Chris #2, John and Jigamafish Joe... Headed Out for a nice day of Fluking... In the rough stuff... First couple of drifts we had decent action... few Keepers along with shorts... Kept workin a patch and we caught some shorts a few keepers... and dropped way to many good fish... Then Joes rod double over and to the Net His Doormat and personal best at 10lbs 2oz(right around 30 inches) and he was also high hook with 5 keepers. Congrats Joe you deserve it!!!!! After having the 9lb 14 oz the other day which although was a great fish was heart breaker just missing 10lbs.. It was nice for the double digit... We picked a dozen keepers and had decent action and like a switch with the south wind the bite completely died and the drift got so fast it became unfishable with an 8 oz bucktail... We headed inshore to 25 - 40 feet and it was mostly shorts witha couple more keepers but the fast drift was Rough on the tackle... Anchored on a piece of bottom on the way and added some seabass to the catch... Smokey Joe brought tons of Food and we laughed all day. Thanks for the fun day... ps way to hang in there Chris!!! Happy Birthday Tucker... 1 more year By days end We boxed 14 keeper Fluke to 10 lbs and 15 Seabass... Most of the fluke were Nice size keepers over 20in We had 2 other between 4-5lbs...
