OC Reef and a wreck

capt.frank - 06/10/2012

Had the pleasure of taking Bob H. and his family out today on their boat. Nice Robalo 24′. Sweet ride! Anyway, we hit Ocean City Reef in hopes of finding some Flounder. We weren’t alone in that thinking, as there were quite a few other boats out there drifting about. We jigged a variety of Flounder rigs around with cut Herring and Mackeral, and even some Squid as offerings. The best we could do in 4 drifts was 2 Skates. That’s all I saw anyone else pull up too. So, we decided to make a move to a wreck in hopes of finding some Sea Bass to keep the boys occupied and happy. We got the wreck anchor to snag up on our second try, a new personal best!

Then we dropped some rigs down loaded with Herring, Clam, and Squid. Maria, Bob’s wife, was the first to hit it with a 13″ Weakie. After that, Andrew, landed a nice Weakie of his own (I didn’t help, I swear..). Then Alex and David nailed back to back twin Sea Bass at 12″. Bob got the mother of all fish, a 6″ Bergall a bit later. Lots of hits and misses, and a few other short Weakies and Sea Bass. Good action to keep the boys interested and entertained. Had a blast!

Tight Lines!

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!
