Just Missed Our Boat Limit by Bob Dodds

On Thursday 7/9, my friend Bob Long and I went on a “skinny water” fluke trip with Capt. Brett Taylor. Because of a slack tide, it was a very slow start. However, when the tide changed, so did the bite.

Blues on the Rocks at Barnegat Light by Carmine Tocci

I’ve been doing consistently well from the rocks just down from the lighthouse. Casting AVAs or other metals usually results in a hook up or a near miss. Lots of action and these are the best eating size fish. Unfortunately,

Another Great Day on the Reef by Larry Leary

Looks like fishing is getting a bit more consistent – for the last few days at least. Yesterday, winds were supposed to be SW the night before but were actually NE and then went East for the day. We all

Spotted Sea Trout Strikes Gold Johnson Spoon by Basil Dubrosky

I bet you thought a large gold Johnson spoon was only good for pike in Canada. I was fishing in Sarasota Bay on Monday, June 8 and caught this large spotted sea trout on a 2 1/2 inch gold Johnson spoon.

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.
