SEA HUNTER IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STRIPER FISHERMEN!

 As far as the Striped Bass fishing is concerned, the asmfc is trying to cut back on the amount of Stripers we can take in the 2015 season. They are trying to take away from a fishery that you are only allowed to keep two fish. When will it end? There are a few different proposals that they have come up with to try and cut the landings by at least 25%. As you know they have us by the you know whats.A couple proposals are one fish per person but they do have some with two fish. Most of the party and charter boats got together the other day from our area and as far south as Barnaget light to discuss our options, and we feel there is no reason to change the laws but it looks like that is not a option. We all decided that proposal B7 was the best for everyone and that was 1fish between 28 and 34 inches and 1 fish 36 inches or bigger. It still gives you a chance to bring home 2 fish and not throw back a trophy size Striper if you catch one. Its all a bunch of BS as I'm sure you know. Anyway I could go on and on about about how these people have no idea whats going. Anyway you can help by sending a e mail to    m.waine@asmfc.org and in subject put Draft Addendum IV and just type in B7 but after that put status quo, you don't have to write a letter unless you want. I put in a very long letter that probably wont get read but I put B7 first and keep status quo so at least he sees that. If you would like you can check out the proposals by going to www.asmfc.org and look on the right hand side at BREAKING NEWS and scroll down to Striped Bass draft and addendum IV if you don't want to read all the BS just go to pg 14 and that shows you the options. This must be sent in by Sept. 30th by 5:00. Hopefully you e mail and everyone else s will help us all.

SEA HUNTER WEEKEND UPDATE 9-22

It was not a good weekend as far as numbers of fish. We just cant catch a brake with the wind. There has been a ground swell in the ocean that churns the bottom up and turns the bite off. We did get some big fish but not nearly enough. The biggest Fluke of the weekend went 8.6 lbs We were out on the morning trip today and had to fish down the beach as the bay was pretty nasty because of the NW wind. There was still a ground swell in the ocean but it did lay down from the past few days. As soon as we stopped we had a 7lb 10 oz Fluke and picked at the shorts. as the morning progressed the bite turned off. We ended up with a hand full of keepers on the boat.Tomorrow the weather looks better. and we will be fishing both trips. Saturday is the end of the Fluke season So check the marine forecast and pick a nice day this week . You have a chance to get a big one but don't expect to see any limits. I will post some pics tomorrow night and update the report. See you soon, Capt. Rob

SEA HUNTER 9-17 EARLY FLUKE REPORT

Capt. Howard is out captaining the SEA HUNTER as he does every Wednesday and gave me a call to tell me the morning fishing was good with nice size Fluke, the pool winner in the 6 lb class. He said the afternoon fishing is good so far with a very lite crowd .A first time Lady Fluker with a rental rod just landed a 9.13 lb Fluke. We are doing good in the 9lb bracket but we just cant get that ten pound Fluke this year.  Maybe on other boats they would call that one Ten pounds but we don't BS on the Hunter. What you read is how it really is. Only ten days left till the end of the season. Come on down and try and get your big Fluke before its to late.I will post some pics and update the report tomorrow night. Tomorrows weather looks great. NOAA weather as of now is calling for some East wind on Friday with gusts to 25. Not that they are always rite and could change it but if you can pick your day I would pick Tomorrow over Friday.
