12/24/2017 - The End of a Long Season


We've reached the end of another season.  The Inshore fishing was a tad better than in 2016 but still has a long way to go to rebuild to adequately support recreational fishing.

Even though few boats, and none of our parties, totally limited out fishing for Fluke & Sea Bass during the 2017 season we expect that the government regulators will find some specious reasons that will support them cutting the number of fishing days for the controlled species, cut the bag limits and/or increase the minimum lengths of the fish our anglers wish to keep.

The weather was not helpful this fall.  The water stayed too warm for the Stripers to get in front of Beach Haven before we moved June Bug south to North Carolina for the winter.

Hopefully, some of the factors that will improve the overall fishing will be in place for 2018.

At least, work has started on dredging Little Egg Inlet.  The incident that we incurred in 2015 in what was left of Little Egg Inlet that badly damaged my knee is scheduled to get fixed this February.

The boat is getting painted this winter. 

No equipment needs to be replaced but we have equipment that's in good shape for sale.  Take a look at the Fish Report titled Equipment For Sale.


Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
