Point Pleasant NJ Fishing Report - Mixed Bag with the Brian Reed Charter

Today I had Brian, his lovely wife and a bunch of his buddies out for some striped bass with some bottom fishing thrown in. Left the dock at 5am and found bait right outside the inlet. Checked that school of bunker out for a few but no takers. Headed north to Spring Lake and came into a pod that was getting smashed by striped bass and a huge whale which came completely out of the water with a mouthful of bunker. Amazing sight!!

We snagged and dropped and caught them pretty good for a while until the mother load of boats showed up. By 7 it was over but we had 8 big stripers in the box so off we went to the sea bass grounds. Ran north and hit a drop in 49 foot and we got into a nice pick of decent sized sea bass plus some ling and big blackfish which sucked throwing those over. Another drop in 50 foot produced a few more keepers plus a couple of short cod. The guys ended up with 43 sea bass and 6 ling. Overall a pretty good day with a great bunch! ~Capt Carlos
