[up][up]Way to go Joe, Keep up the great work!! Ill be calling you soon for another trip:D

Action is heating up
It is game time in the Garden State — the time of year when we can expect anything from a record bass to an 8-foot thresher shark in the Raritan Bay. Schools of bunker, herring, spearing and smaller baitfish are attracting just that. Ocean temperatures are just about right for any species to make an appearance.

Capt. Ron's Fisherman had more shorts than keepers this weekend, but most anglers went home with a few filets for the dinner table and happy to play catch and release with plenty of action. You can still catch Capt. Ron in search of monster bass during the week, so get out there.

Capt. Carmine aboard the Island Girl III worked the outside of the hook with the rest of the fluke fleet and landed fish up to 22 inches. The Island Girl and crew ended the day maxed out on fluke and plenty of fish and chips for all.

Capt. Joe G aboard the Sykk Physh has been making all the right moves and continues to spoil his charters with some of the best bass action on the East Coast. Capt. Joe G is taking out charters in the cover of darkness and landing some of the biggest trophy bass I have seen all season.

The Sykk Physh charters look like they have been fishing in Montauk for bass because they are so big. Capt. Joe G has his secret spots right in our backyard and he has the pictures to prove it.

Log on to the Internet website at for pictures, top charter captains and real time reports from the best anglers in the state.

Capt. Joe T aboard Tuna Tales needed to battle bigger fish and headed offshore for warmer waters. Tuna Tales went eight-foreight with some big blue sharks that patrolled their chum slick all day and handed out a few sore arms. Capt. Joe and crew battled and released all fish to fight another day. Tuna Tales is just getting warmed up and will be targeting big Makos in the coming weeks.

Did you know? Proactive International Game Fish Association (IGFA) Virginia USA representative Dr. Julie Ball

took time on March 22 to wet a line off her hometown of Virginia Beach, landing a tautog (tautoga onitis).

Dr. Ball, guided by Skip Feller, used a crab on 16-pound test line to attract the fish that weighed in at 14 pounds, 13 ounces. She may replace the IGFA women's line class record for the species, which is currently 13 pounds, 11 ounces, caught off Port Jefferson, Long Island, N.Y., in 1993.

The photos of the nine pending records for June are shown at under hot news and hot catches.

Fish on!
