Fall Canyon Fishing in Full Swing!


Looks like we are in for some good NJ Canyon Fishing for the next few weeks.  A warm water gulf stream eddy has pushed into our NJ Canyons and the fish are there.  Despite the Full Moon this weekend, we had 2 very nice trips, catching a mix of Yelllowfin, Swordfish, Dolhpin, Marllin and a bonus of two jumbo Big Eye Tuna, weighing about 285 and 250 pounds.  If you are looking to get in on a chunking/jigging tuna and sword trip, now is certaily the time.

HURRICANE IRENE UPDATE

 

We wanted to thank everyone who emailed and called for their words of encouragement over the last 36 hours.  As far as we can tell at this point, all three of our large sportfish made it through ok.  OVER UNDER sat it out in Hatteras Harbor Marina, while JUSTIFIED and LOW PROFILE tied up in their Avalon, NJ slips.  The worst hit NJ near low tide and kept the surge from becoming too much of an issue and the wind was never really going to be a big factor with this storm. 

 

We'll start putting everything back together today, and should be ready for fishing starting Monday!

postheadericon NJ Offshore Fishing - Mid Season Update

New Jersey Fishing Update - August, 2011

 

We've  all ready had an incredible season, so who knows what the next couple months might bring.  If things continue the way they are now, we will have had our best season in 5 or so years when the smoke settles.  The Yellowfin moved inside the canyons about 2 weeks ago and we had some great success both trolling and chunking fish in 20-30 fathoms.  The last week, they have become a bit spread out and tougher to keep track of, but at the same time the Tuna are now back in the canyons, and the dolphin we've all been waiting for are here as well now.  The White Marlin bite started stong, then slowed over the last couple weeks.  We expect the marlin fishing to be back to red hot later this month and right through mid to late September. 

 

Inshore we have both chunked and trolled fish, while offshore to date, it's been a trolling game.  Jigging has also proved effective inshore for Yellowfin Tuna this Summer.  The overnight bite shoudl begin to get more consistent this month and be in full swing by September.  It appears things may be back to the good ole days with a great fall chunking season.  Not much on the swordfish yet, that will be a Fall t hing, but there are sharks out there at night, both Blue Sharks and still some Mako's hanging around.  Both the Shark and Swordfishing will peak in September/October.  If you are looking to get back out on a canyon overnight trip, don't wait.  This is probably the  year to go, so make some reservations between now and October.  Fishing will continue into October, but the weather gets quite unpredictable in the Fall, so no reason to wait.  We will continue to run our Canyon Day trips all Fall, with August maybe being the best month to do a day run to the canyon.

GREAT NJ CANYON TRIP

white marlin fishingWhile fishing has not been as consistent as it was a couple weeks ago.  Great catches are still there to be had.  Yesterday we took an open boat group out to the deep for a 22 hour full day trolling trip.  Departing at 1am, with lines in teh water just after sunrise, we hit it hard all day and it paid off.  When the smoke settled, we kept 6 Yellowfin, a 172 Pound Big Eye Tuna, Released an estimated 370 pound Blue Marlin, went 1-2 on White Marlin, and added three nice 20 pound Mahi to the box.  While the Yellowfin action was not red hot by any means, we had our shots, pulling off several fish and loosing another nice one at the boat after a lengthy fight.  Adding a Big Eye and a Blue Marlin in the same day, sure did make up for some droughts between bites on the yellowfin.

The last few weeks has been great.  Yesterday, fishing off Crooked Island in the Southern Bahamas, OVER UNDER went 3-4 on Blue Marlin.  The mix of Yellowfin and Blue Marlin has been exceptional the last 3-4 weeks fishing Diana Bank, Crooked Island, and San Salvador.
