Mid Range Wrecks Still Teeming with Life
First up was
Pat Albano and friends, including Pat’s nine year old son, from Jackson, NJ. Our first drop was a
little slow so we pulled the anchors and made a six mile run to another wreck in a little deeper water. Little
bit of a tricky setup because the wreck was surrounded by lobster pots but worth the extra effort. I’m
thinking because of the pots no one had setup on the wreck in a while because it produced a nice steady pick of mostly Ling
in addition to Sea Bass and a few keeper size Cod. Pat Jr. had a smile from ear to ear which grew bigger
each time his rod got thumped by another cod or ling.
up was a split trip with Jack Adams from Chalfont, PA and returning customers Joe and Rachel Gifford from Raritan, NJ. Saturday
was a Steamer, some of the hottest weather I can remember in a long time, however the crew hung tough to put together a decent
catch of mostly sea bass, not sure who was happier to see the trip end the charter or the crew, wow was it hot!!
We finished up the weekend with Pete Kahora and family from New Tripoli,
PA. Ran back out to the deep water and immediately had quality fish flying over the rail. The
girls did an awesome job of filling the box with a nice mix of Cod, Ling and a few very nice Blackfish, not to mention they
were more than happy to mug it up for the camera. Can’t leave the guys out, they did just as awesome
of a job but I’m pretty sure the girls edged them out on the final fish count.
