Point Pleasant, New Jersey - Saltwater Fishing Report

<p>Headed out for another day of bottomfishing... Dave aka baccala, Uncle paulie, Joe Jigs, Shrimpman Steve, Johhny Tomatoes and Stelly.

Got setup and had good Life right away... Best life we seen up our way so far.

Heavy on the shorts... But we managed to box some keepers... After a while a few Bigguns came out to play. Dave an 8 lber,Uncle paulie 7lbs Joe a 6 lber, Stelly then matched Dave with an 8 lber.

Bite slowed up but we still got some bites... Some More shorts and a few Keepers. Turned into a funny scratchy light bite

Then Daves Rod doubled over up to the Boat with a Real Beauty and Personal Best @ 11lbs 11oz... that to go along with the other fish he had over 8lbs... Congrats Dave!!!

Bite fizzled to nothing... so we made a move. Got set up and after a few min we started to get some bites... Same deal Lots of shorts... few nice boxers..

Cont to pick until we had a Boat Limit!

Congrats to 1800 Double Limit Joe Who had the Hot rod today... he was High hook with 9 Keepers... Dave was the Man with Big Fish... Uncle Paulie was in Mugger Mode. Shrimp and Mr Tomatoes added to the Box ( Steve was the action man with da shorts). AND BOY STELLY IS BITTER WHEN HE CANT BE THE HIGH HOOK

Between everybody we wound Up catching around 35 Keeper size fish for the day with everyone taking home a legal Limit... along with a Load of shorts... Big Fish was over 11lbs, two others over 8lbs, and two more over 7lbs. 1 Keeper Cod also made it into the box.

Seems to be getting better every trip... Still had to work for em but the end result was a Real nice catch!!! Def more life and bites... Hopefully this is the start of a Good crack at them before it closes

Fun Day with Great Crew.
