  2. This is the catch. There were a few monsters caught of 7 or 8 lbs. I managed these 3. Chris had 2 larger ones. John had 2 or 3 shorts and missed several. One of ...more my keepers I stole from Tim after he missed it I dropped down and got him.

  3. We had another decent trip aboard the Osprey with Captain’s JP and Amanda the mate Travis was again very helpful. Thanks to Gerry the president of NJ Fishing.com ...more for letting my son Tim squeeze in on our sold out trip and supporting our veterans. Gerry covered Tim’s fare and also gave him a nice hoody. I ended up with 3 keepers lost one and 4 shorts. Tim also had 4 shorts.

    Tautog with a Crab

    1. Never tried the Blues. None up this way
    2. the lips are soft jimbo
    3. Auldon Thomas 0
      Blue cats are the only ones worth eating....I can fry up a small blue and mix it with crappie filet and no one will know who ate the cat... LOL
    4. Jimbo Harwood 0
      They look like they could be a challenge to catch.. are those lips hard or soft.? they look hard
    5. These are one of my favorites to fish for. They’re not easy to hook and are very good at stealing your bait. So it’s more of a challenge.

      Nice!! πŸ‘πŸŽ£πŸŽ£

    2. i prove him wrong all summer long fluke fishing for years and he never changes haha
    3. He doesn't want to be proven wrong. That day is coming soon
    4. i think he has something against going from really good, to epic fishing! scared to try i guess.
    5. Jimbo Harwood 0
      sounds like he should listen to his mate's once in a while.. lol. but like you said its his boat. Still did a GOOD job!! πŸ‘πŸ‘
    6. Thanks guys. John can be very stubborn most of the time. We tried to get him to move a few times. We went over some very nice bottom which is where the big fish ...more hang out. He just drove right by it. I think he’s afraid of losing the anchor. I told him that I’m also a welder and a scuba diver. I’ll retrieve the anchor or make another one. So frustrating but it’s his boat.
    7. Woohoo! Way to go Arty!..... Next time call for a mutiny!!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    8. Nice catches ArtyπŸ‘

I am a Fishaholic, I go crazy if I can't fish. My favorite fish are anything that swims and puts up a good fight.
