After a month of some of the worst bottom fishing in local history things may finally be looking up. We finally have the croakers in the Delaware Bay. The water is still cooler than average as any beach goer will agree with, but at least it is finally not cold.
We continued tog fishing managing to scrape up a few dinners through mid July. With a nice warming trend in mid July the tog started going into their summer mode so we switched back to regular bottom fishing. We had some success with a few trout including a 3 lb 8 oz fish for Scott Knorr. We also landed a few trigger fish on a some occasions including a 4 lb trigger for Alex Charles. Most trips were lucky enough to go home with a mixed bag for dinner. Our Tuna trips got off to a slow start the weekend of July 26,27 as the bluefins had shut down for that particular weekend. We did catch a tiger shark on one of the trips and had a 200 lb mako on a shimano jig for about 20 minutes before he finally bit through the monofilament. This was a site that we will not soon forget as this mako put on the best acrobatic shows one could only imagine.
Anyway, things have been looking up lately with more croakers showing up along with large numbers of blowfish. We're looking forward to getting cranked up with the yellowfin tuna fishing this month through mid October as well. Once again thanks to all our clients this past month and were looking forward to seeing you all again.
