Great Day with CAPT Greg Cudnick by Bob Dodds

On Tuesday morning 5/28, my son-in-law Eric and I met Capt. Greg at 5:30 in Barnegat Light. Because of potential bad weather, we opted to fish in the inlet near the end of the north jetty for stripers and blues. The action was quick and we each got smaller stripers and several blues including one gator.
Since the storm was coming from Philly and still way off, we thought we had time for some trolling. We traveled north and tried but the storm was coming quicker than expected. We took in the lines and made it to the dock just as the rain came. Despite the ran, it was a fun day.

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.
