Sandy Hook Fishing Reports

Had my crew out again to day for some great black fishing out of Sandy Hook. This was one of our best trips this season and to top it off I got my personal best with a tog over 10 pounds and the real kicker was having my son Jack with us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Had the crew out today for a fun trip out on the Jersey Devil. We headed out of Raritan Bay a bit latter due to the blow the last couple of days. Although we had a slow pick we had our biggest tog of the season with Jimmy "Peach" swinging a 10 pounder over the rail. We had 6 keepers for the whole trip but I expect the fishing to get better for the Raritan bite over the next few days. We will continue to sail out of Sandy Hook for the next few weeks as the weather seems to be holding and the fishing should hold together as well. We are looking forward to heading offshore for cod and other wreck fish.

We will be sailing on Saturday as well as New Years day.

Tight lines!

10 lb blackfish

Had the crew out on Sunday to do some Sandy Hook black fishing. We started with a slow pick but the action heated up when we moved to the south end of the reef. We ended up the morning with a total of 19 keepers up to 7 pounds. We will continue to fish for black fish, cod, and ling as long as the weather let's us get out which looks pretty good for the rest of the year.


Merry Christmas and hope to see you soon.

Time has come. Have to step up to the plate on two fronts and I need you to inspire your members and friends to activate NOW to help the bunker.
First off- Everybody needs to call the congressman that represents their district.This will vary depending on where they live.
Speak with the receptionist and leave a message for the congressman stating the need for him to address the overfishing of our menhaden and protect our fish.
Link to identify your congressional office:

We had Jay Gerish and his family out in the afternoon. What a great day on the water: 75 degrees bright sunny skies and calm seas. Well the fishing was tough but we ended up getting a fish for each of the crew except for mom. Sorry mom we will get you fish on the next trip! We ended up the trip with 2 bass up to 15 pounds and 2 bluefish up to 12 pounds all in all it was a but slow but we managed to get some fish and had a great afternoon.
