Well now that I'm done working for almost a month without a day off its time for a little R&R. Taking Pop Striper fishing tommorrow, Probally on the Sea Hunter.I havent even heard or read a report in a while. Hows the bite?
The bite is good now with fish hitting clams, rubber shads trolled on umbrella rigs, and Wildeye Storm Shads - Bunker chunks are also working. [up]
Some nice Weakfish are starting to show up now, also. My buddy pulled a 10# from near the Highlands Bridge the other night. [up][up]
If you get any slammer Blues don't forget to save the "cheeks" (the piece of soft meat right behind each eye).
Core them out like shucking a clam/oyster or coring an apple, take the skin off, and cook them just like you would cook sea scallops.
A little crushed garlic cloves, sea salt/fresh ground pepper, butter, a squeeze of lemon, and cook in a frying pan - you'll have yourself one helluva meal!!! If you want, add a little cayenne pepper or creole seasoning for an added treat!!![cool]
Good luck fishing and tight lines to all!!! [up]
Oh yeah - FYI - Some friends from my hunting club (including Outlaw) fished the Delaware River near Lambertville - They were going for Stripers and Channel Catfish using chiken livers and beef livers.
They said the water conditions weren't that great, but Outlaws cousin, Mike, caught and released a Striper that was under 12".
Where there's little fish, there are usually BIG fish not too far away, so I expect the Trenton, Lambertville, & Phillipsburg areas to start getting hot any day now, provided we don't get any more major flooding up that way making the river unaccessible.
