After searching half the ocean the past couple of days looking for the bite... today, we tried another new area. Had perfect conditions with the out-going and a West wind, like they say West is best when it's right! Slugged away on the shorts & keepers for most of the Morning.
Dave Bachovin fishing the bow lead the way with 4 keepers and a bunch of shorts, a couple guys with their three but it certainly wasn't the norm...Pool changed hands several times through-out the day with Diane hanging in there with her 4 pound fish till it was topped, then topped again. Big one for the day went 6 pounds.
Not many area's holding fish just yet and to stay in Sandy Hook bay is just dying a slow death, for now. My fuel bill for the past week will prove that. Water temps are good at 70 degrees but I'm not happy with the lack of bait in the channels. Last year to date the reach channel was the place to be, right now it's a dead zone. No bait, no fish, except the occasional lost one that want's to bite. Sharks are plenty once you get deeper than 20 ft.
All we can do is work hard every-day, keep searching and praying that we will be rewarded with banner days ahead!
Back at it tomorrow.
