Stripers and Big Blues Are In-Come Hook Up On The Jersey Girl

Capt. Roland Lizotte
August 12, 2008
Race Point - Saltwater Fishing Report

Finally, after 4 re-scheduled dates due to poor weather and strong winds, Kirk and Donna made it out with us for a great day on the water fishing
for striped bass and bluefish. This was a birthday gift for Kirk and they were chomping at the bit to get out and get into some of the great bass fishing we have had lately.

The day started by leaving Brewers Marine around 10am today, a little later start than usual but the tides and winds were perfect for the trip.
We had a very smooth ride across the bay over to Race Point. Light winds allowed us to run at 30-40mph the whole way across. The water was like
glass and you could easily see fish on the surface of the water if they were around. After a 30 minute ride, we went through the quick lesson on how we would be fishing, how to work the rod/reels and what our hand made jigs would be doing along the bottom that would cause the striped bass to go crazy. We placed a few bets on who would catch the first fish, biggest fish and most fish for the day, then we were off fishing. Within about 15 minutes, Kirk's prediction came true and Donna had her first fish on. After a quick fight, we managed to put a smaller sized striped bass in the boat. Next was Kirk, then Donna, then we doubled up and that seemed to be the routine for the next couple of hours. Kirk landing fish, Donna
landing fish with doubles on most of the time. We hit our limit of bass and had some good size bluefish in the boat by the end of the trip. Jigging with the wire line really makes for fast, fun and exciting fishing. They both could not believe how fast the time went by. When I asked them if they considered the day fast fishing, they both agreed and said "YES"!!! They had a blast and so did Denise and I.

In the end, the weather was perfect, we caught lots of bass with some nice sized bluefish and had a great ride back to the docks. Great fishing, great people and a safe trip all the way around. What more could you ask for??? How about planning that late summer or fall trip for trophy bass, bluefin tuna or sharks. For those of you that watched shark week on the discovery channel, you know how much excitement there is with a 5-7' shark swimming around the boat. Come on and hook up on the Jersey Gril. Contact Capt. Roland for details.

Race Point Fishing Forecast:

With east winds, the bass fishing will slow but expect the tuna fishing to heat up. The forecast for the end of the week looks great and expect the bass fishing to pick up again with SW winds.

Target Species:

Striped Bass, Bluefish, Bluefin Tuna, Cod, Haddock and Sharks
