south winds are killer  Angry

You got that right Tom. Once the tide started coming in and the wind picked up from the south the bite was pretty much over and done with.

Nice catch you guys put together.

Since I have the pics, I guess I'll post the report for Team Reel Time. 

The day started out promising.  Capt. Mike had a cooler full of bait including some peanut bunker that he had netted the night previous.  We left the inlet by 5:30am and headed out to the reefs.  And although I hear that the northern part of the state had a lot of wind, we couldn't find any.  No drift at all. Tongue  At one point I was fishing a 3/4 oz. bucktail in 60' of water and holding bottom with no problem.

Capt. Mike put us on all the right spots and we even tried some power drifting, but despite his (and our) best efforts, it was not to be for Team Reel Time today.

Bottom line for today was a few shorts, some sea robins, a couple of doggies, a triggerfish, and a ton of laughs! Wink

Actually, we didn't catch the triggerfish.  It was more like it caught us.  During one stop this little guy started hanging around the boat.  It stayed just near the stern area where we were all fishing.  And despite Capt. John's efforts to net it and Hotrod's, Hareball's, and my attempt to get it to bite something, it just continued swimming around with us.  Rod liked it so much he named it Bobo! Grin

So our tournament report is no fish, But a really fun time was had by all! thumbs up

Thanks guys! thumbsup2

Had Don Tim john and jerry sr. aboard. Headed up to the rocks looking for some slobos.

fish were in tight little pockets. nothing real big for us. slow pick but we managed to grab 14 keepers.

south wind completely ended our bite.

14 keepers

4 biggest weighed 14.20lbs

had a great time with good company

Thanks for putting the tourney together

Nice report Bob and Captain Jerry. I wish we could have sent some wind down your way Bob. We had way too much of it up north. As soon as the wind started, the fluke got lockjaw.

Hopefully, we can get another tourney together in the near future.  thumbs up

The Fluka Brasi crew Of Dave, Ross, My bro Rob, and myself had a great time today. Spent the day in the Reach, mostly from the 10 (where we had the pleasure of seeing Nick and the LS3 crew) to the 14. Steady pick thru the morning, and when the drift died, decided to stay put and switch to jigging..continuing to pick away. Ended up with 8 keepers for the boat.. with no help from me at all.. My juju was bad all day, after my lucky "Jersey Fresh"  hat got sucked out of the boat on our first move.. and I just couldn't get it going today..Good thing the Jersey Boys bailed us out. Our potential anchor fish, was a nice lookin 5-6 lber.,  came un-buttoned on Rob just as Rossie was sliding the net under!    
As for our weigh-in, I will leave this up to the discretion on the judges.. Lack of advance recon left me unable to find digital to weigh on..I first weighed in on at the Tackle Box in Hazlet on their beam scale. As I could not get a pic that showed the #'s on that scale, I went into Keyport and tried Crabbys..They had a dial scale that  could be read, but neither scale had increments less than a half pound.. Also, a few of my scale pics taken on my new little camera have one of my sausage fingers  in the frame. So I will gladly accept any ruling on our weight or entry.

Our top 4 fish:

1. 19 1/4"  3.0 lbs
2. 19 1/2"  3.5 lbs
3. 19 3/4"  3.5 lbs
4. 20 1/2"  4.0 lbs  

Total Weight: 14lbs.
This is the first tourney I've fished in about 20 years and we had a blast!. Congrats to all, and thanks NJSWF for a great time !

  Thanks Tom but no 7 for me today... I had a 6+ yesterday but couldn't find that one fish that would have put us on top... I was on fire this morning. Seemed like I had a fish on couple of minutes with 5 out of 11 keepers... maybe 4, i dun remember.

 Great swing today and congrats to the crew on TNT and Bacalla (spro in da lip)...

 I had an AWESOME time today hangin with the LS3 crew. It was good to kick back and fish instead of working... Nick was killer on the helm today... Uncle Luna was a stalker as one of the big fish came up with out anyone onboard knowing. Almost lost it. Fish spit the hook in the net.... HAHAHA.. Lucky us...Jason was our net man today and from a Captain's view, looks like we have a natural born decky. Skol wasn't slackin either landing the biggest fish, if I'm not mistaken... Last but not least.. LS3 is a sweeeet ride!

 Anyone pick up a black bag near the reach.... Hahaha.. Sorry  [/b][/size]

Great job everybody thumbsup2

Like Bob said we had absolutely no wind at all. A bottle cap could have floated on top of the water and for our area thats pretty much unheard of. It did give us a good clear look at some massive bunker pods. It was very cool to sit back and watch thier behavior but the lack of fluke biting it was not long before snaggers were flying through the air and the boat had some blood in it.

We had a full cooler of bait but they way the fish were biting today I think with the addition of the bunker we had more bait heading in then what we had going out.

Bunker are frozen and will be ready for the next shark trip thumbsup2
