A Good Day..

We were out today hitting the Striped Bass. Leaving out of Barnegat Inlet it was a beautiful day. We started the day by trolling north along Island Beach State Park in about 35ft to 40ft of water. It was slow pickins, we trolled up to about the bathing beach when we decided to move out to deeper water. We were in about 65ft when things picked up. The umbrella rigs were getting hit hard all fish were about 12 to 18 pounds. The bass were good average size for the Fall. See you guys at all the up coming shows.

Winter Tackle Care 12/29/13

As winter moves in its time to close the book to another great season. Tackle and gear are put away for another year. But before you put your fishing tackle away until spring, make sure that it sufficiently winterized. Doing so can not only extend the life of your equipment, it can save you preparation time in a few months when the days get longer and warmer, the sun a little higher in the sky and the new season is upon us. Here are a few tips on cold weather tackle storage designed to get your gear through the winter in great shape to get back out on the water come springtime.
