Fishing Report

11/25/15: Almost Thanksgiving, where did November go! Friday we didn't sail due to the horrible forecast. Saturday was nasty in the morning but as the day went on it calmed down, and the fish bite was on! A few guys had their limit with some impressive fish. Pool winner was Paul DeJesus of NY, with a 7.2-lber. Sunday was on the slow side, only a handful of fish were caught. Pete won the pool with a 3-lb blackfish. What a difference a day makes, I guess that's why the fish bit on Saturday, there was a small ground swell.

Monday we had a afternoon charter with the Barnegat High School Fishing Club. The winds were high but as long as we stayed close to the beach, the seas were calm. They landed a few nice stripers and bluefish and many short stripers were released by the kids. It was cold and the hot chocolate sales were at a all-time high! Thanks to Brett Taylor for organizing the trip and giving the kids a chance to experience the thrill of striper fishing. Also on Tuesday we had a charter with the Korean American Fishing Assoc. It was a beautiful day for November and the guys had a great time. We wish the fishing was a little better, but we tried the best we could and they did catch some nice size fish. Thanks Jay, for organizing the trip, we enjoyed your group and hope to see you again.

The Carolyn Ann lll will be sailing on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only. We will be targeting blackfish but if we see stripers on the way in we will stop on them. So bring a spinner, just in case. The boat will be shutting down for the season shortly, we wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and hopefully we will see you at sea!
