  1. Fished the top of the afternoon outgoing in CMC for 2 hours. lots of bites, and lost a lot of plastic but only landed one blue. Probably had 5 or so spit the hook, still a fun afternoon on the water.
  2. Thanks man!
  3. Fished first light in the OC, out front, and lucked into my first ocean caught striper of the year. 20ish inches? I got him to eat the teaser, which I was glad I had tied on today. No other action otherwise, this was the only fish I saw all day. I'd like to thank MC55 for his helpful advice on soft plastics and a light setup, made a huge difference Mike, Thanks!
  4. SP's are deadly all year in Jerzy. Once you figure out the retrieve (which wasn't super obvious to me anyway) they are real fish finders. They are really eating little jig's and paddle tails right now, I'd just bring a bunch of those and see what happens. And catching on a buck tail is a real accomplishment. Literally entire books have been written on that subject alone. So definitely keep that up! Great question, thanks for posting!
  5. Chased reports for the second night in a row. Fished out front OC, night shift, last 2 hours of the outgoing into slack and a little past. Not a tap. Threw the entire bag. I have a charter trip scheduled next week, I think I'm hanging it up till then. Second thought: If anyone wants to fish with me shoot me a PM, I'm serious about the craft, 43, and won't slow you down. I'm definitely not a novice, but weeks like this one make me think I could use a little mentoring. Just a thought, cheers.
  6. I hear this wind has them chewing.
  7. Fished last night in OC out front. Chased reports of fish from the last two nights in the same spot only to find the skunk. Water was moving and clean(ish) fished the entire night bag without a tap. I did ok in early April out back, but those fish topped out around 22", still looking for a keeper sized fish in 2019.
  8. Nice! Embraer? I recognize those bolt covers from my 10+ years on the 170.
  9. Deep skunk on the outgoing into slack low last night (Sunday) Monco, front, back and inlet.
  10. It appears that my original conclusion was correct; yes, there are options for the fly fishing market, and no, none of the surf bag makers have anything chest mounted on the market. Thanks for the thoughtful responses. It could be that just another kind of plug bag would work better, but the other night trying to unhook a uncooperative fish on a slippery rock with waves breaking over me, and my surf bag in tangled mess got me thinking that there had to be a better way. I'll keep looking. Thanks again.
  11. Are these a thing? I find the over the shoulder method awkward, and looping it onto my surfbelt isn't any better. Google has turned up a bunch of fly fishing bags like this, but seems like none of the surf plug bag guys have anything like this on the market. Thanks.
  12. I find myself with the day off tomorrow (9/17) and I'd like to book a party boat fluke trip. Any boats in the Point Pleasant/Belmar area that you guys would suggest? Thanks.
  13. Fantastic Advice, Thanks for the detailed post, I really appreciate it. All pluses, exactly what I was hoping to hear. Thanks! I'm relieved to hear this, it seems it's standard issue for everyone on youtube, glad to hear you're on the fish w/o one. Thanks!
  14. Apologies first because I'm sure this exact same thread has been started a zillion times on this forum, but nevertheless I feel like this is the only place to ask the couple of dumb questions I'm sure everyone has about buying a kayak. 1. At north of $3k all in (looking hard at the Hobie Outback), for the boat, propulsion, rigging, fish finder, roof rack, and probably a couple of new rods - is it worth it? Do you connect with more fish than you did from shore? Do you only fish from the kayak now? 2. Night fishing, seems pretty scary to me to go out after dark, but I see dudes doing it. I'm sure just like anything else with the right safety precautions it's manageable, but from the sidelines it looks terrifying. I'd like to hear your thoughts, do you fish at night? how do you rig the boat? and what kind of weather criteria do you look for? 3. If I want to target stripers offshore in the fall, I absolutely need a dry suit, right? Thanks.
  15. Got out back last nigh OCt from 4-5:30 on a flat outgoing for the skunk.I ran into a guy who had a bunch of action on the paddle tail, tried that and the sp's with no luck. At least it was a super nice night.
