    June 2019 Fishing Reports

    Out front SJ kingfishing is pretty steady right now! I hook something big, on my kingie rig, rod in hand,I felt the pick up and set the hook hard, it starts burning drag, at 1st I’m thinking ray! I start cupping the spoil of my saltist 2500 to slow it down, and I feel a head shake! Now I know it’s no ray, it burns drag 3 more times, emptying the small spool. A crowd has gathered behind me, it’s high tide 5pm last Friday in June! It’s fighting down and making powerful in and out runs! It finally comes up top and I hear the crowd’s oos and ahhhs, as it shimmers in the afternoon sun! Nice drum on A kingie rig.. released! Thanks to Beach goer Maureen for nice photo..

    If you're shooting a live-feed, you've already declared you're okay with a spot burn. If you're attached to a large fish, and you don't have a plan for either a quick CPR or harvest, you've also made another decision/declaration (not too concerned about the fish). If you've already caught dozens of trophy fish and you don't have a feasible plan for quick release of your next one....you don't care that much about a quick safe release of the fish, nor the breeding population, nor setting an example. I gotta think pride or self promotion is a factor. I've caught a few big fish, and in 2 instances, photographed them then released them safely. But that was after........ I killed my first weakfish by carrying it around hoping someone would take a picture for me. My 1st 36" stripe floated upside down around and around the inlet where I caught it. I handled it too long and did not revive it. That was the beginning for me. It was embarrassing watching and knowing the biggest fish caught that day was the one I killed and wasted. I imagined that every angler in the crowded spot that made eye contact with me wanted to tell me what I already knew. I look at trophy fish in the posing hands of anglers all the time and wonder if they're having the same thoughts I had years ago...that they are now validated as a good angler? Recently, when asked, I told somebody I had a good night, caught fish from 22" -34". The person told me that that was 'nothing' because they were associated with somebody who caught a much bigger fish at a different location. I knew for a fact that either of those people, if they were standing next to me on the same night, would have went home when it started to rain. I guess what I'm saying is that the lack of concern for conservation, and the need for excessive self-aggrandizement is more understandable in newbies. The only way to learn how to catch, handle, and quickly release a 45" fish is through some combination of experience, coaching, and learning by example. If the pros gave a crap about conservation, they would take the needed measures. If they don't, they should hear about it. If you're a pro you should lead by example and declare openly whether you think CnR and spot burns are valid issues to worry about. The public should vote by buying/not buying your products Maybe the next newbie won't needlessly kill their 1st weakfish or 36" stripe? If those commercially viable and readily recognizable anglers who sell a lot of product advocate for quick CPR, maybe the next angler won't kill his 1st weakfish or 36" stripe.

    Been a fish high up on my bucket list for a long time, didn't expect my first one to be a giant. 200 yard first run, absolute beast. Forearms and back were screaming by the time I pulled it in.

    Went out this morning at 5:15am. Caught 6 bass and safely released them. All on left side of the jetties on top water plugs. I seem to do well this time of year with topwater plugs next to jetties. Have a blessed day!

    The answer is no. This is a holiday brought to you by armed citizens. By American exceptionalism. By the love of liberty. By everything that liberals find offensive anymore. Liberals should never celebrate Independence Day.

    July 2019 Fishing Reports

    Did someone say Rainfish? Moco 5p-8p from the top to start of outgoing tide while out front. A strong south wind for the first hour that shifted to the west. I caught a few short flat ones using casting gear with a bucktail and teaser, while noticing a large amount of rain fish in the wash and several speedy flashes of silver caught my attention. I switched out to a surf candy teaser to go along with the white bucktail and caught five Spanish Mackerel on the teaser. The action lasted about twenty minutes. All SM released. I finished the evening with a dozen short flat ones two right at 18 that were released, and one keeper at 19 inches. Several skates were also hooked and released. Here is the surf candy teaser that worked tonight, along with a sample SM.

    Some random person took this pic of me and my son, and ran over and showed it to me. So glad they did, they emailed it afterwards. Honestly, it almost makes me want to cry when I look at it

    She wasn't qualified to be VPOTUS. But I'll say this for her, she loved America, valued America, she respected American culture, and she was Proud to be American, which is a hell of a lot more than the crop of wackos that the Left has been putting out there.

    Maybe discuss self-promotion and ethics?

    It's not "creating an unreasonable barrier of entry to the hobby" to say nothing to anyone if you're on a bite. The next generation of anglers can do what the last MANY generations of anglers did, get off yer ass, get off the phone, get off FAKEBOOK and TWATTER and INSTASCAM and go fishing! Figure stuff out on your own, meet folks along the way, IN PERSON , put in the time necessary to earn a spot in a specific lineup. This crazy addiction called surf fishing is not for those seeking instant gratification , it takes time , dedication, lots of sleep depravation and some luck.

    Embarrassing Week for the Left

    First Trump gets liberals to oppose an America themed parade in DC, on the 4th, of all days. Then they trip over themselves to say it's really a campaign rally followed by the humiliation of it being just a parade like normal folks already knew. Mixed in there you had leftist protesters confirming their hatred of this country with anti 4th of July signs and jetty helmets. And then T-Bone gets caught smuggling illegals across the border. Tell me again how liberalism is not a mental illness.

    Embarrassing Week for the Left

    Some of them came out to say the the rain during his speech yesterday was "God disapproving of him" or some sort of nonsense. Gotta give the guy credit, he got the Democrats to say 2 things they never had before, that a weather event was not related to climate change, and better than that, I guess they acknowledged that there is a God..........

    Look at all those people. How many meals a day are my tax dollars paying for in the pictures alone to provide for people who broke our laws and crossed our border without permission? Send every single one of them back. And then post pictures of THAT.

    Played hooky Friday to hunt down some bonito that everyone is reporting. Had to fight through a million small blues, but the bonito were there. Got a bonus small spanish mack. Only the 2nd I've caught in NJ. The last was 15+ years ago and twice the size. Sushi for days! Not from the beach

    Sorry, but veterans actually did something other than telling the world who you like to have sex with. Veterans should be the ONE group that shouldn’t have to fight to be noticed and celebrated - they did their job...we should be inventing new ways to celebrate them. TimS

    CMC Took the kids out crabbing along a bulkhead yesterday. They were excited to catch a few really nice sized blue claws. Spent Father’s Day crabbing with the little ones and drinking a few brews. Out back this morning in CMC, hit a local sod bank spot 5:45-6:45. Using a Smack it jr, I conjured me up a healthy schoolie striper. I didn’t measure it but probably around 22”. This ends a really frustrating 18 month striper skunk! I’m 38 years old and you would think I could find other things to get excited about, but it still feels nice to catch a fish!

    So, the Doc gets immunity from prosecution and takes responsibility for the death, since nothing can happen to him anyway and the SEAL goes home. It is absolutely brilliant. I love a happy ending!
