Does anyone out there know what happened to the party boat Miss Point Lookout? I know the captain took her down to Florida for the winter but did he decide to stay, sell???
Just wondering. It was a nice boat to fish on for the fall full day seabass/porgy runs he made.

I dunno Spig, but if I had a nice party boat like that, I'd have a hard time bringing back from FL too.

Hey Gami,
Just saw on another site that them folks think the Captin done sold it. Real shame. It was a fine boat to fish from and had a nice bunch as a crew. Oh well, back to Capt. Al for bottom fishing.

A lot of party boats are serving as Manhatten commuter ferries to fill the void caused by the loss of the WTC path station. I know at least 2 boats from Belmar are ferries during the week and fishing Raritan Bay on weekends.

Huh?
Thought that the Miss Belmar Princess, Nighthawk and Skipper were doing NY Waterway ferry runs M-F. Hoboken-Manhattan. Then on Fri night, they head back to Belmar at about 7pm and come back up at about 8pm Sun. In between, they fish out of Belmar. If you have a share house in Belmar, you can do the NYC-Belmar RT for about $30 and get a fishing report included

I saw those boats in Raritan a lot but I guess it was earlier in the year. Maybe they just stayed up north for the spring striper run.

Capt Walt was the man! Best blackfisherman around.Even charter Capts used to fish his boat.I used to work with his brother Chris and Danny on the Starstream with Richie K and his son.Those were the days!
