Islamorada Tarpon

Fished with the Mikes this weekend in Islamorada. We had a great day Saturday sight fishing bonnet head sharks and lemon sharks. We caught and released several. We moved on and caught some snappers, jacks, and speckled trout. We finished off the day with big Mike releasing a tarpon. Great day. Pro Tip: Sometimes the bite window is very small. Make sure you are there and ready when it happens. We were and it paid off!

January Stripers

Darryl, Ryan, and I headed out on Sunday. It was epic. January fishing can be awesome. We released a bunch. Lots of triple headers. All on jigs. Pro Tip: Every year is different, but stripers after the new year are always a possibility.

Stripers are still here. Caught a bunch with Mike and John yesterday on jigs.

Fished with John and Colin in the ocean for bass. We started out jigging and caught a few shorts. We then switched over to trolling and we caught several more including two keepers. Last weekend we got blown out entirely. I'm done in New Jersey for this year. Off to the Keys and warmer temperatures for the winter fishing. Pro Tip: Staying dry is the key to cold water fishing. Assume you're going to get wet. A water proof outer layer is key.

Fished last Saturday with Rick, Grant, and Matt for stripers. We jigged up a bunch of bass. I think we had around 25. We had good action but most were shorts. Pro Tip: Casting up current allows you to get deeper with lighter jigs.
