  1. Got a question about Rocks this happened to a friend of mine and me the same night. My Buddy had 2 nice rocks that he had caught and had on ice for 2 days I had 2 nice rocks that I had caught and had on ice for less than 20 hours we both fillet them and he cooked his one way and me another (used a crab cake res. spread it out on top of the fish and broiled them). Took em out of the oven and they looked a tad bit over cooked but nothing tooo bad. Man o man took one bite of them and the fishy taste was sooo bad and over powering that I couldn't eat another bight. Felt bad about that and put them down for the dog to eat and she couldn't even finish them. Called my buddy up the next day and he said his fish had a real bad fishy taste to them as well. When I cleaned the fish they looked good and I even cut out the dark meat on the fillet. Not sure what went wrong but was wondering if anyone has had this happen to them and what I could do in the future to make sure this doesn't happen again...Tanks

  3. Hat's off to the ECO's: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Denise M. Sheehan today announced the charging of a Shirley man with multiple violations of the Environmental Conservation Law after Environmental Conservation Police Officers (ECOs) observed the individual allegedly possessing 268 blackfish over the state’s fishing limit. "This arrest once again demonstrates the work that our ECOs do each day to protect the public, and our natural resources," Commissioner Sheehan said. "ECOs are tireless in their pursuit of violators of the State’s Environmental Conservation laws." ECOs observed Arthur C. Reilly, 46, of 39 Cypress Lane, Shirley as he returned to Senix Marina, Center Moriches aboard his commercial fishing vessel "Flora-Jo." Upon docking his vessel officers observed him offloading live blackfish into three holding pens that were in the water at the boat slip. In total, Mr. Reilly had 293 live blackfish, 268 over the state limit, and also had five striped bass and fillets of three other striped bass in a cooler on the vessel. The state’s striped bass season ended on December 15. After counting the blackfish, 268 live blackfish were released. Mr. Reilly was charged with possession of striped bass out of season and possession of blackfish in excess of the limit, all violations, with additional charges pending. In addition to the work done by Long Island area ECOs to investigate marine fishing violations, the DEC also formed a Marine Enforcement Unit in June 2005 under Commissioner Sheehan’s leadership. The MEU is specifically responsible for protecting the State's marine resources by enforcing State and Federal laws and regulations concerning habitat preservation and the recreational and commercial harvesting of fish, shellfish, and crustaceans. ECOs in the unit are assigned to the lower Hudson Valley, New York City and Long Island. The MEU includes 10 officers and an investigator.

  5. Kmw and I hit plo ..looking for something different...the action was really slow Blues spots and croakers were caught will try again @ end of Aug Hight light was checking out a small pod of Dolphins working the water off the point The cooler shot is a another anglers catch
  6. I didn't see any mention of this in any other thread so I though I would share this story I heard on the radio today. Apparently a extremely rare species of whale worked it way up the Assawoman bay and got stuck and was eventually euthanized. It's unfortunate to see that happen but it will provide scientists with a good opportunity to learn more about it. Looks to be at about 120th street in <acronym title="Ocean City">OC</acronym>.

  7. I have some family in town this week so i offered to take my uncle and cousins fishing. We headed out of wise point around 9am and found a nice smooth ride to the highrise. With my uncle, cousin Jim and the wife on board we started by drifting for flounder. Within minutes we had our first flounder on board caught by my wife. It was her first flounder ever but it came up an inch short. I tried around the piles for spades but only had a few nibbles and didnt even see any in the water. On one drift past the piles my uncle caught a nice triggerfish and a few minuts later i had one as well. This was my first trigger. He caught his on squid and mine was caught on shrimp. We continued to drift around hoping for that keeper flounder but after 9 caught and all thrown back we diecided to go to the 4th island. It didnt take long and we started to catch fish. Still no keepers though. Tried for spades at the 4th as well with no luck. We headed back to the highrise and caught a few more throw back flounder and headed in around 4. We ended the day with 12 flounder, all within an inch of legal size, countless huge oystertoads, black sea bass, 2 triggers around 4 lbs, and of course a ray. We caught fish constantly all day and had a great time. The best flounder bait seemed to be minnow/squid combo (best oyster toad bait too!!). I did catch one on a "lead head" with a twister tail tipped with squid while jigging across the bottom. Thanks to everyone that replied to my flounder rig question. We had a great time cating them. Maybe next time we can keep a few.
  8. Ok, why not? The spring get together is in the past for this year. Time to move on! Time to start talking about a summer get together on Assateague. Generally, this happens in August, down past the Bull Pen. Later on, we will set up seperate threads in reference to who's going, what to bring, and who needs a ride. To start with, we can figure on a two-day event, possibly three days. In the poll, vote for what day you would like to see the event START. If you choose Sunday, we'll figure that means Sun-Mon (and Tues?). And of course if you choose Friday, we'll figure the next two or three days. Remember, weekends are more crowded and MAY involve waiting to get on the beach, if you get there after about 8 am. Cast your votes!!
  9. It has slowed down just a bit with the hot temps. Kingfish, Spot and Croakers are still being taken from the suds. Sandtigers, Sandbars and a few other Sharks are still being caught up and down the coast. Saturday we went down to wet some lines and ended up with only 2 Kingies, but got 6 Sandkitties.
  10. Hit Dam Neck with Non-Caster from 4:30pm - 7:30pm for last of incoming..... Grass in close was not fun, cut up and tossed the only two fresh fish we caught (1 spot, 1 croaker) and had some fun with biters. We landed 3 Sandbars from 3.5'-4' ft, I got bit off once on a run and Non-Caster lost a stud biter, probably 5ft + in the first breaker when he finally bit him off. Had his SHV spooled more than 3/4 way down if not further, before he finally got him turned. He was a stud of of the box, absolutely smoking run and such a sweet sound! Looked drummy if it wasnt for the grass!
  11. It was a great day yesterday, the weather was perfect and the fish were plentiful. I took Chad Baniowski of Williamsburg Virginia out to the Chesapeake Light Tower. Chad is a Chef at Berrets Seafood Resturant in Historic Williamsburg so I am looking forward to getting some new recipes for ways to cook Spades from him. I had been telling him all about Spadefish and spear fishing and he was eager to give it a try. We departed Rudee Inlet around 0930 and went straight to the tower, it was nice, there was not another boat in sight so we had the tower to ourselves. The current was ripping but the visibility was decent at about 15-20 feet. There were tons of spade fish and we saw quite a few Amberjack as well. Chad speared his first spadefish and we were able to get our limit of 8 after a good workout of fighting the strong current and swells. Chad also tried some jigging but could not get one of the Jacks to bite, I am sure a live bait would have done the trick. About the time we were leaving two other jet skis showed up to try and catch some fish (I may be starting a jet ski trend). We were back at the ramp and on the road around 1530, just in time for rush hour traffic. Ha. The Chesapeake Light Tower is about 16 miiles off shore from Virginia Beach. I carry a Spot GPS Tracker with me here is the link to one of my "Spots" showing the Lat/Long of the tower. http://fms.ws/3BiSy/36.90466/\-75.71265 It was another great day, here are some of the pictures I took while out.
  12. I am thinking of pulling the all nighter again tomorrow. Does anyone know how this storm will affect the conditions for sharking that evening? I know the storm should be clear, but will the water be significantly cooler, warmer, are remain about the same? Any other conditions that might change that would affect the bite? Thanks.
  13. Hey everyone...Just wondering if anyone will be out either <acronym title="Ocean City">OC</acronym> or <acronym title="Assateague Island">AI</acronym> saturday evening? I will be down Saturday during the day and just wondering if it would be worth staying and fishing Saturday night. Let me know!
  14. Hey guys...I am about to go on a another trip, but I took a couple people out last night and we caught something amazing. By far my most memorable fish catch of all time. Here is a teaser, a full report will come tomorrow when I have gotten some rest!: Anyone want to guess what this is? Ben
  15. I friend of mine sent me these pictures today. They were supposedly taken off shore of Rodanthe North Carolina by a helicopter tour operator. That is all I know. The other picture was sent to me by Bud Corbett of Poquoson. It was taken a couple months ago by a spotter plane over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.
  16. Yesterday my wife Cindy and I along with my brother John and his wife Renee’ met with my Congressional Representative, Congressman Rob Wittman of Americas first Congressional District for lunch and a tour of the Capital. This came about by way of a Duck’s Unlimited fundraiser a few months ago. Congressman Wittman was kind enough to donate this personalized tour and I was lucky enough to win the bid! We met at his office in the Longworth building around noon and I gave him a framed photo I had taken of New Point Comfort Light recently. From there we went to the Capital Hill Club for a great lunch. We had a good discussion about the Chesapeake Bay regarding the menhaden fishery and oyster aquaculture. Rob Wittman is also an avid angler and an advocate for the Bay so of course I had a good time talking with him. Next he took us to the Capital where we were fortunate to see a vote in progress. There were many other Congressmen present and it was impressive to see it all in action. Afterward we walked to the Rotunda where Congressman Wittman gave us a great lesson in history, art and architecture. All told we spent over two hours together. It was an experience we will not soon forget. Gordon Neal, the Congressman’s Staff Assistant, gave us an extended tour of the rest of the Capital building. Later in the day the four of us walked the Mall area. My wife’s father is a World War Two Veteran and my father was in Korea and Vietnam so we all wanted to see those memorial sites. Here are some of the pictures I took.
  17. In the past year i have witnessed some very rude and some dangerous moves made by my fellow anglers. Growing up on the Eastern Shore i had a boat at a young age. The very first thing that i was taught by my father was safety and ethics on the water. Most of these ideals that he taught were mainly common sense and courtesy toward other boaters. This past year was my first year fishing the mouth of the bay for strippers. I had a very good first season, but saw things that really bothered me. This past Saturday was just as disappointing as last winter. I had three boats drift so close to my boat that I had to push them away from me with my hands. All while the captain stared in disbelief that I was upset with him. I had my line cut, while anchored, by a boat that passed wide open by my stern within 40ft, and not to mention the wake that he threw over me. One thing that I really don't understand is how people can take the entire bay and feel the need to run at high speeds in between 20 anchored boats on their trip north or south. One of my friends I had on my boat with me is in the USCG. He told me that there is a law in place that will require boaters to have a drivers license within the next few years. I think that this is a great idea. The things I mentioned above aren't just gripes, but concerns of the safety of myself and other anglers. Some things that people can do to better the experience for everyone on the water would be to go around a group of boats that are anchored up instead of through them on your way to your destination. Be conscious of the fishing lines of others, (your hook isn't the only one on bottom). Be aware of your wake and where it is going to head once you've left the area. If it can be proven that it was your wake that caused damage, you are responsible for it. Don't drift or anchor to close to another boat. Be particularly careful when passing or motoring around a boat that contains children. I saw 2 almost get thrown off the other day when a 25ft Parker passed at 1/2 throttle no more than 50ft from their boat. I could go on all day. The bottom line is that most of the anglers out there do know these things and are respectful of others on the water, but its that ever growing percentage that can make a great day on the water aggravating or even dangerous. I'm sure that many will read this and agree. Maybe even have had similar things happen to you. To others, this may piss you off. If so, you are the problem. Keep your boat on the trailer and next to the SUV / station wagon thing.

  19. The next meeting of the Bull Island Anglers Club will be Monday July 26th at 7pm. The meeting will be held at Trinity United Methodist Church in Poquoson, Va. The address is 1294 Poquoson, Ave. The meeting is free and open to the public. Our topic this month will be sheepshead and triggerfish. These fish can often be caught together on offshore wrecks or banging pilings at the bridge tunnel and are available most of the summer months. Everything one needs to know from rod and reel selection to how to hook the bait for optimum hook set will be discussed. So come on down and pick up a few tips on sheepshead and triggerfish. We will also be discussing the upcoming Flat and Furious Flounder tournament that we are helping promote and run. This tournament has been great the last few years and the prize money is guaranteed, so tell a friend or two to enter the tournament. $1000 for 1st place. Hope to see ya'll there.
  20. They suck, we always get overrun with black flys. Anyone have any ways that you can avoid them when the West wind is hitting? The weather forecast this weekend is saying west winds both saturday and sunday
  21. I had a friend i grew up with, Kevin, in town this weekend so i took him and the brother in law out for some spades at the CBBT. Once again the morning started off with some rough water but it laid out pretty nicely by the middle of the day. We tried my favorite spot with no luck which was a first. Then we moved around to the other side of the 4th. Within 10 minutes we had our first spade of the day. We ended up with 7 spades all a ranging from 4-5lbs. Which were larger than the previous week. We headed back to the ramp at wise piont around 1 and had another great day on the bay.
  22. Put the boat over at Wise Piont monday around 7am and headed out to the CBBT. I very quickly realized that the weather man had missed the wind predictions for the day as the chop was around 4ft. Took my time and made it to the 4th island for some spade fishing. I sat on the ocean side for most of the morning with no luck. I had a ton of hickory chad in my clam chum and they kept stealing my bait. I did manage a nice 24 1/2 inch flounder while jigging on the bottom. I moved to another spot that had produced spades last year and was rewarded. I had a limit of 2-3 lb fish in an hour and headed back in much calmer water. Got home and the wife and i took our year old son to the pool. It was a great way to end the holiday weekend and an even better dinner last night!!! Hope everyone had a safe and wonderful 4th!
  23. I went out for afew hours ...I caught this lil 1lbs and missed another on the frog and one on jig .....I was surprise how clear the lake was ..I'll be back soon
  24. I hit the pier looking for some spanish macks and blues ....I didn't hit any macks heck neither did anyone else...small blues did show up...the action was so slooow I took some randon shot of others
  25. I traded a friend my Daiwa Grandwave 5500BR for his Team Ala rod. The reel was cool, but im a Shimano Groupie! LOL Anyway I had this rod for a couple weeks but didn't have a reel to put on it. So like any Tackle Whore would do I used that as an excuse to get me a reel.. So after some research I decided on the Shimano Power Aero Prosurf. The reel arrived, and was promptly filled with 250yrds of 15lb Suffix braid (with mono backing). So anyway I decided to go fishing today, and today I would test out the rod.. Well today the fishing sucked, but it gave me time to put the rod thru a couple test cast. Let me first start off by saying the rod is not built for the uni-tech, overhead thump or any other cast that requires a stiffish tip. However with a fishing OTG cast it excels. Once I figured out the correct drop, it seemed to launch my baited rig (homemade single drop rig w\ 4oz) pretty far i would say 130-150yards (maybe more).. I can't be positive but I'll take it to the field tomorrow afternoon, and hopefully get video\pics. Anyway first impression are positive, but it's way to early to say for sure. My intended purpose for the rod is for the Bay\DE Surf spring run. It seems to be perfect for 4-5oz and a worm, but Im not postive about larger baits.. Time will tell.. http://www.atlanticanglers.com/images/imported/2010/07/IMG_4245-1.jpg[/img]"] http://www.atlanticanglers.com/images/imported/2010/07/IMG_4243-1.jpg[/img]"] http://www.atlanticanglers.com/images/imported/2010/07/IMG_4244-1.jpg[/img]"]
