Hot Afternoon Bite By Martin Friedrich

July 4th had my friend Paul out with me today. Started at the LE reef just managed a few shorts. We moved to the Rutgers bouy area, we caught 3 keeper’s and quite a few shorts. Early afternoon we moved SW into 45 ft of water. We landed on a nice patch of fish, we got 6 more keeper’s and more shorts than we lost count. Bait was Gulp, pink seamed to be best in the morning. After we move to the SW spot White was the hot color. Any member’s (+) who would like to fish outside with me are welcome we do share expenses. I am available most days my contact info should be on club roster.

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.
