Used to say the weather was a stripers best friend. guess it goes for fluke as well.
  4. Been pretty poor, half dozen trips three people two keepers. We've experienced lots or rain and wind limiting drifting opportunity. The warm surface water temps were deceiving as the fish that we caught were cold with dirty bellies. Adding to the confusion is reports of more keepers being caught close to inlets which is opposite of past early season patterns. Also haven't heard of any large fish being caught, very confusing.
  5. Seriola zonata Size to 24" Habitat Coastal surface waters, congregating around any floating objects Description Juveniles ( shown, up to 12" ) are attractively patterned with six or seven dark bars; these are lost in adults, which are also much slimmer. Schools of small Rudderfish can often be found around boats, and even around divers hanging on the anchor line. Pilotfish are similar, but larger and retain dark bars throughout life. Nice photo, DG
  6. W Won't hurt your pets used this for the camel crickets, indoor and outdoor use. Read up on it.
  7. Does anybody remember if the bonus fish was being allotted because NJ didn't have a commercial quota? If the program is suspended will it ever come back, stripers are a money making fish for NJ and I think they want to protect that. During the moratorium when the fluke season was over so was the party boat fishing for the most part. I submitted the survey yesterday and made it clear I felt the population was in trouble. It also makes sense the spawning season should be closed to fishing especially in the river ways, I remember the weakfish heyday they were so thick the spawning weakfish were scooped up with nets off the surface, right before the population crashed. Common sense dictates you have to protect the breeders, taking a breeder accomplishes two thing bragging rights and ego massaging. As for food quality I'd much rather eat a 28" fish than a 48".
  8. Italian Funeral A Jewish man was leaving a convenience store with his espresso when he noticed a most unusual Italian funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A black hearse was followed by a second black hearse about 50 feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary Italian man walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men walking in single file. The Jewish man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the Italian man walking the dog and said... "I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen an Italian funeral like this. Whose funeral, is it?” "My wife's." ''What happened to her?" "She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her." He inquired further, "But who is in the second hearse?" “My mother-in-law. She came to help my wife and the dog turned on her and killed her also." It was a very poignant and touching moment of Jewish and Italian brotherhood. Silence passed between the two men. The Jewish man then asked... "Can I borrow the dog?" The Italian man replied, "Get in line."

  9. 18" Fluke S Jersey not sure what it is. Correction was....
  10. I have ASS on my Forester and the one thing that drives me crazy is when I park at home. I pull up slow and stop the engine stops, my mind has already gone to what I have to get out of the car. I put it in park and a message appears on the dash please turn off engine, I have to start it again to turn it off. I do like it for the long traffic lights with left turn light in both directions. Love the back up camera especially for hitching the trailer.
  11. Fished with two friends yesterday, they both had white jigs and white Gulp. I used a plain lead head with white Gulp, they each got a keeper and a short, I didn't catch any. The two days before with the same jig I caught two shorts on the lead head compared to one on the white. MHO is water clarity has much to do with the bite. Less than clean water wouldn't more white including hair make it more visible and get more strikes. So many variables effect fishing it's fun to discuss techniques. One saying seems to hold water, Any color as long as it's white.
  12. Let me get my geek on, you ride in a car you must wear a seat belt, a child must wear a helmet to ride a bike, children under 13 must wear a PFD on a dock or boat. Yet we expose ourselves to a constantly changing and hazardous environment with no protection, the beach. So people run into the ocean thinking other people drown but not me and the life guards can save me, not a good plan.
  13. I caught a Black Drum off the beach and a friend filleted it for me. Relative to the size there is little meat and the taste was average. I decided then they would be CR fish. I do the same with tog, I enjoy catching them more than eating them.
  14. Launched the boat this morning at Cape May ramp in Lower Township. Walked down to the floating dock and observed this waste. It appears that a small section of meat was taken from behind the gill plate and the rest discarded. I just can't understand how someone can justify killing four fish for a few pounds of meat.
