Two good Ling trips Wednesday and Friday!! We had Ling, some Cod and some Flounder on
both Ling trips this week. We are fishing very deep for the Ling this time of year, so after a good ride out to the grounds
we were not disappointed!! Wednesday's trip was good, Friday's trip even better! On Wednesday, anglers averaged
from 8 to 15 per person with high hooks in the twenties. Some catches of note were from Wedensday were: Dennis Stock from
Fairfield, NJ had 23 Ling and 2 Flounder, Tim Dickerson from Wanaque had 22 Ling and 2 Flounder,
Ray Bryant from South Orange, NJ had 17 Ling and 1 Flounder and Noel Westerlind from Leonardo, NJ had 21 Ling and 2 Flounder.
Friday saw average catches in the 12-20 per person range with high hooks in the 30's.
Jeff Schwarz from Lake Hiawatha had an awesome catch with 37 Ling, 2 Flounder and a nice big Fluke (picture) Herb Dinger
had 24 Ling, Herb Neuhaus had 29 Ling and 1 Flounder and Mark Adamarek from Garfield, NJ had 33 Ling and 1 Flounder.
Excellent Porgy Fishing The past few trips!!!
Saturday's trip the fishing
started out pretty goo, first with Porgy action but not a lot of keepers and then we found the big fish! Unfortunately as
we were catching the fish the wind shifted, we lost the spot and by the time we could re-anchor to adjust for the changed
conditions the fish had moved on (or we just couldn't find them again) we still ended up with a decent day but it was
not what we had hoped or thought it was going to be.
Sunday we returned to the same general area and found those nice big Porgies again, this time holding on to them
for the better part of the day! We have also picked at Trigger fish and even some Winter Flounder inshore as well!
Some catches of note from Saturday were: Mike Ayres from West Milford, NJ had 25 Porgies, Archie Stewart from Nutley, NJ
had 25 Porgies, Tony Wilcox had 14 Porgies and Jim and Lydia Gladis from MIddletown, NJ combined for 19 Porgies.
Sunday's high hooks were Marat with 43 Porgies, Adam Dietrich from Pennsylvania had 37
Porgies and Joe Williams from Philadelphia had 41 Porgies!
Good Bluefishing Friday and Saturday evenings!
The Paramount started fishing Friday and Saturday nights for Blues this past weekend.
Right now the fish have been VERY big Bluefish, averaging 12-15lbs with the pool winners being in the upper teens to low
twenties in weight!! We've also picked up some Bonito on our night trips as well.
Friday's pool winner was Dave Field from Ocean City, NJ with a 17 Bluefish and Saturday's
pool winner was Mike Tkacs from Norwood, PA with a monster 21lb Bluefish!
