Shark River Bass FishingChris Marsala, Captain of the Chicken of The Sea, headed out of Shark River Inlet Thursday morning with the his son Ryan, brother-in-law John, and his buddy Frank for an early shot at the  fall bass. They broke the inlet before the sun was up and started looking for fish. Chris said "there was a lot of bait and as soon as it cracked light there were bass all over the top". The crew had drop and reel fishing for a solid hour with mostly bass and big blues. As it got later, the blues took over and it became difficult for them to catch the bass. They put six bass in the box from 29-36" and released a bunch more and took some blues for shark baits. Chris said "All of the fish were caught on naked Ava 67s. We were back at the dock by 0900 hrs and I burned less than 10 gallons of fuel. God Bless our troops and keep them in your prayers!!! " See More Pictures Here

Capt Rick, aka Great Bay Junkie, also had a great day out of Little Egg. Rick was limited out with bass to 21.5 lbs by 7:30 this morning. he had a double header that was fun (Solo Trip) Rick said " I was able to land them both but it was interesting to say the least." Rick left them biting and is in good graces with the wifey for being home early.
