Bush Family Stripers and Fluke

Capt Greg had Charlie Bush and family out for a summer combo trip this morning. The crew chose to brave the rain in the morning and glad we did! The sun came out and it became a beautiful day on the water. Striper fishing was a touch off but we caught some and then switched over to fluke. Added some keeper fluke to our box with some short life to keep the crew busy.

Tiritilli Family Stripers and Fluke

Had the Tiritilli family out today- saw the bunker thick so one throw of the net and we decided to make a few striper drifts close to home. Caught a couple overs and a couple keepers then went fluking. Very good action with plenty of short life with a handful of keepers mixed in. Biggest fluke went 24" and 5lbs on the scale caught by Matt on a @shadlifebaits ball jig. 

We have two spots available on Sunday for our striper/fluke trip departing at 6am ($180 per spot). Call/text 201-421-8653 to jump on

Su Kwan Canyon

Had Su Kwan and the boys out for a tilefish trip yesterday. Told them we should try some tuna as well, they agreed, horrible fog conditions made for impossible fishing, so after a few hours pulled the plug, glad the tiles cooperated. Saw a few mahi that wouldn't cooperate.

Bluefin and Tilefish Regulars

Fun day today with the regulars, started the trip with a 5 banger of tuna. Switched up gears and landed two dozen tiles to 20lbs, went on the hunt for popping/jigging fish in afternoon and found the mother lode, getting a bunch more. Cool thing was did some BFT finlet sample for the Bluefin Collaboration.

Vinny T Stripers and Blues

Capt Greg had Vinny Thurston with his dad and friends out today for Father's Day. One throw of the net we had 120 bunker in the well and by days end we ran out of bait. Loads of bites landing our boat limit of keeper stripers along with some blues to round out the box. When we ran out of live bunker we put the chunks down and caught some as well. Fished until we ran out of bait and headed home.

Sushi By Sea - Stripers

Had Jay and Cris from @sushibysea along with friend Gian from Battello in Jersey City out for stripers. Check them out as they made the "47 Best Restaurants in the US" list for 2024 by USA Today. 

It was the guys first time out for striped bass and we had some great action to start off the morning. Right away multiple fish on and that lasted about 45 mins. The next couple of hours had a couple of bites and dropped two more fish but nothing as exciting as that first few drifts. 

Give them a follow and see what they're all about! @sushibysea

Had Adam Conley out in the morning for stripers. Bait took a very long time but fishing was a good pick up to 40 inches with a couple keepers mixed in. High hook had 5 by herself- not bad for her first time striper fishing!
