Fathers Day Fishing

capt.frank - 06/19/2012

Finally got the computer glitches worked out…

We had our annual Father/Daughter – Daddy’s Day Flounder Tournament on Sunday.  I had Brynn and Chloe on my team, John had Grace.  We headed out behind Stone Harbor to make drifts and hopefully catch Flounder.  Weather folks called for 5-10 out of the NNE for the day.  Instead when we arrived, we had 10-15 out of the NE.  It later increased to 20+.  We made some nice long drifts tossing a variety of baits out.  The drift sock helped immensely.  The girls were focused on their mission to catch a dinner and win the ice cream bet we had going.  First fish caught resulted in the other teams having to purchase ice cream for all.

Well, after an hour and a half with no bumps, hits, or misses, we decided on moving elsewhere.  At this time Brynn decided she was cold and had enough of fishing.  So a call went out to Lisa for extra clothing and a pick up extraction.  After the restocking of clothing, John, Grace, Chloe and I headed back out.  In the next spot, we again had some nice drifts along the sod banks.  This time we managed a small Sea Bass and a small Doggie.  Then I had my rod crushed by something strong and fast.  It screamed off drag and made several strong runs.  I was thinking nice Striper, but instead found it was a big Doggie.  It didn’t fight like a Doggie, it was actually fun.  The girls played with it, gave it kisses, and tossed it back.  Wind was steadyily increasing, so we called it a day.  Despite the wind and lack of fish, we had a blast out there with our girls.  Spending quality time with the kids is what it’s all about.

As a bonus, Chloe got me a nice new Fishing Journal with her awesome artwork adorning the cover.  Brynn got me a killer set of BBQ sauces that will be put to good use throughout the summer.  Lisa hooked me up to : )  It was a great Fathers Day!

I run guided fishing trips in the waters of Cape May County, NJ by boat or from land. By boat I fish the back bays, ocean, and Delaware Bay with 1-3 anglers onboard. I will also take any number of anglers out onto the beach to surf fish, or out and about in the back bays to fish the sod banks and other structure. Families and children are always welcome! My company motto is: We Go Where The Fish Are!
