Awesome Day on The Jen-Jen by Larry Leary

We left the dock early and broke the inlet around 7:00 only to find 53 degree water temperatures. Not good for fluke!
We were originally going North to Seaside but decided the fluke bite wasn’t happening in those temperatures so we headed offshore 8-10 miles. With 5 guys on board, we end up with 13 keeper Fluke to 21” and released many shorts and overs. We also caught our Sea Bass limit also with many released. As a bonus, we kept 6 Red Hake! We also caught a ton of Tog which were all released!
What a memorable day! Heading out tomorrow hopefully for a repeat performance!

Fishing Facts

Of the fifty United States, thirty-eight have a striped-bass record. New Jersey has the largest striped-bass record—a 78-pound 8·ounce whopper that was caught in 1982. The state with the smallest striped-bass record is Iowa. That landlocked striper weighed only 9 pounds 4 ounces and was caught in 1983.
There’s something fishy about beer these days. Fish Tail Ale is popular as ever, and New Jersey’s Flying Fish Brewery is one of the state’s largest specialty breweries. There’s also Washington’s Wild Salmon Organic Pale Ale, Florida’s Land Shark beer, Delaware’s Dogfish Head beer, and two versions of Stingray beer—a lighter version from the Cayman Islands and a dark beer from Canada.
The triangle fly is probably the most unusual of saltwater flies. It’s one of the few, if not only, flies tied to a treble hook. It’s also barely a fly at all, because hardly any material is used. It is complete after tying the two straw pearl twinkle flashes and the tiny tuft of natural squirrel, leaving an entire hook fully exposed. Incredibly this barebacked treble fly is a knockout when it comes to sea trout.
