Well, 2021 was a crazy year that I believe we are all glad to forget…Fishing has been good, but regulations have made it tough to take home certain species. Striped Bass is still being regulated in a slot limit of 28-35”. There have been plenty of short fish and even more fish over the slot limit. Hopefully the fishery managers know what they are doing. I personally feel that it is not working to save those big breeding fish, but it is the law right now. Sea Bass is another species that I feel they are overprotecting at a cost to young lobsters and other species. We can’t keep Sea bass until the 18th of June, and only take 2 per person till September when it goes up to 6. Right now, we can catch Striped Bass, Bluefish, Fluke, Sea Bass, Scup (Porgies), Tautog (Blackfish) and Cod. Offshore fishing is spotty with the Sharks, Tuna and Bonito. New regulations on Mako Sharks almost guarantee a catch and release fishery. They have to be HUGE in order to keep a Mako.
Unfortunately there might be a fuel surcharge this year on diesel fuel, unless the powers to be, figure it out and end this nonsence. Diesel is what runs this country and the trickle down effect on food & other goods is crazy. Right now diesel is at $6.80 on the docks. Last year it was anywhere between $2.80 - $3.50.
There are still plenty of choice dates available. Give me a call and we can discuss your fishing trip. Don't forget we have gift certificates for birthdays, anniversaries, or any celebration you want. We also do Ash Burials for your loved ones, and Sunset or Harbor Cruises. This year I plan to do some Lighthouse and Wind Farm Tours too. All you have to do is ask or tell me what kind of trip you are thinking of doing and we will see if we can make your wish possible. We also have shirts and hats, which make great gifts. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to send me an email, text or give me a call. I do take credit cards and Paypal, as well as checks for your deposits, and you can do them on my web site if you desire.
Ready to schedule your trip? That's great! Give me a call or send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as possible!
