Our apologies for the lack of posts. We are in the midst of an inexplicable slump on larger fish. No one knows why. Within a mile of the beach mackerel are abundant, but inshore we’ve found only small schoolies – not the Capt. Bob brand…
On that basis we are switching over to focus [...]
It continues to be a strange striper season, with catches varying by the day. Fish are now in very shallow water chasing baby herring under terns. We chase, we catch (usually), and we continue the hunt. Unfortunately this week we also got blanked – ouch.
On the brighter side bluefin are now showing in [...]
This has been a strange season, no two ways about it. One morning this week the water temp had dropped to 48 degrees. Need we say more about the fishing that day? Persevere we do…
The highlight of this week’s trip was hosting a young Make a Wish recipient. Understanding his challenges reinforced just [...]
A most unusual early season: fish to nearly 50″ mixed in with shorts, and one productive trip followed by a westerly-wind-induced shutout (two this week – ouch…)

As now even I believe we will have a summer this season, let the fishing games begin!
Our early season pattern is holding with large numbers of schoolies, and occasional trophies in the mix. a 49″ cow was taken on the weekend by colleague Ray’s wife on their FIRST scouting trip after returning from Florida. [...]
Call me an optimist, but even I think there will be spring this year. June?
Much in the way of good news this year:
1. Operations: We will be running 7 days per week. Yep, finally did it. Thank you Patty for giving me the nudge!
2. Sponsorships - stay tune for several. The word [...]
As we close out the year, three things I hope not to repeat next year:
Regarding #3 it was the un-tuna year for us. I kidded Capt. Tyler of the Pinwheel he might need [...]
Greetings from Stripertown. Lots of fishing, and fish this week.
As is often the case for June, it is quantity over trophy quality at this point in our season. Strong numbers of sub-legal fish bode well for our future, and the sprinkling of line stretchers remind that trophy time is near.
On several [...]
