9/30 – Steve’s September Wrap-Up….

Sorry it’s been a while since my last post. The truth is it’s been a pretty slow and disappointing month of fishing for what traditionally should be one of the best times of year. I’ve had only a handful of good nights of fishing out of many put in, as have many

AUGUST 17 – STEVE’S REPORT & VIDEO

Some people are lucky, some people are good. I’ll take being lucky over good any day of the week. I’ve been sitting on these photos and video for a few weeks now. Back in the last week of July I was fortunate to hook and land a new personal best in the wee hours of

June 1 – Steve’s report & video

Well it’s been more of the same this past week in terms of fishing, spotty. For the most part we still have mainly small fish (18-24″) around but more and more “keeper” sized fish are mixing in. There have been some bigger fish weighed in at the shop but I

May 25 – Steve’s weekly report & video

Hey Everyone, Well the striper fishing is steadily improving but it’s still spotty. I haven’t found it to be overly predictable just yet. Some spots that produce fish one day will draw a skunk the next, despite being a similar time and tide stage. Earlier in the week

Fresh Fish…Fresh Footage! – MAY 17

Well the season is officially under way and if you haven’t got your first stripes of the season, it’s time to get out there! Everywhere I fished this weekend, both front facing beaches and back water marshes/estuaries have produced fish of various sizes. Last night
