Great Day with Reel Reactions Charter by Ed Valitutto

I booked a charter with Brett Taylor of Reel Reaction for some Saturday afternoon skinny water fishing with my grandsons Nick and Vinnie and son in law Larry Rossi. Brett totally delivered! We fished a favorite cut of his adjacent to Double Creek in water 3 – 6 feet deep on his new shallow water skiff.
I don’t know how many fluke we caught but it was definitely over 30 with 8 keepers up to 20″. Brett knows these waters and provides a great quality charter. Give him a call and book a fun trip.

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.
