Started the charter around high tide on a brilliantly sunny day. Went to the middle of the harbor while waiting for the current to pick up steam. Found plenty of Atlantic Sharpnose eagerly taking cut bluefish and croaker. After getting our fill of sharks, we headed off in search of other gamefish. Mud minnows proved to be effective either under popping corks or bumped along the bottom with a jighead. Caught many trout and ended the trip with a three pound flounder!
Well, no matter how much you fish, sometimes you witness the spectacular! Throwing trout back into the water attracted attention from a pack of dolphins who promptly surrounded our boat for a few minutes. The man in the video playing dolphin whisperer is one of my good friends and regular client, David P. Simply an amazing experience!
The Hable family joined me again this year for a morning of family fishing. As the tide fell, we worked grassy banks with mud minnows under popping corks and quickly found consistent action. A mixture of trout and acrobatic ladyfish kept the the corks dropping. Somewhat torn, we left the bite to go in search of redfish under docks. The gamble paid off when Eric muscled a big red into the boat to end the charter!
