jacks first tunaThe Jersey Devil headed offshore to the blue fin grounds at 0400 this past Saturday with Stevie, Paul, John, and Chris with Stevie, Paul, John, Chris and Captain Brian's 5 year old son Jack. After a sloppy ride out they arrived on the grounds just after 0600

Lines in and the first tuna hit the deck at 0700. The troll produced a few more bites but none came tight. After many long hours of trolling a call was made from Captain Freddy of the Andreas Toy to run down 13 miles to the SE as he was on the fish!!!!! Upon arrival the signs of life were all there so the guys started jigging to no avail trying to get Jack his first tuna. Buddy on the "Prime Coat" hooked up as the boats were getting ready to head in at 1600. So with that Captain Brian made a call to Captain Chris on the "Chicken of the Sea" and with that he calls the "Devil" into a good bite!!!! Out goes the baits and uncle Stevie hooks up Jack's tuna!!!! Jack got on the reel and never gave up and got him to the boat and to the gaff done by his father Captain Brian.

The team work and perseverance by the crew and the networking really paid off for the Jersey Devil on a true day to remember!!!!!!

 
Egg Harbor Township father-son duo hooks 17.5-pound flounder

17lb flukeOne of the largest flounder ever caught "other than boat" in the state may have been in Absecon Inlet on Sunday afternoon. Phil Todd was urged by his 10-year-old son, Phil "P.J." Todd, to take him on a Father's Day fishing outing.

It sure turned into a celebration when the 42-year-old Todd hooked into a 17-pound flounder. Curt Riccardi measured it at a full 3 feet in length at Offshore Enterprises tackle shop in Atlantic City. Todd said he and his son first tried the beach in front of Harrah's Resort and Golden Nugget Atlan-tic City but did not do anything there. So Todd drove over to the area between the William "Bill" Demones Jr. Atlantic City Seawall Fishing Complex and the end of the old Atlantic City Boardwalk. Just after noon, Todd rigged a big minnow, cast it out about 40 feet off the bank and rocks there, and the doormat was taken in by the old "big bait, big fish" trick.

"She was beat," Todd said of the fish when he got it on land.

Todd moved from Cape Cod, Mass., to Egg Harbor Township in January 2000. He owns Phencemen, a fencing company with headquarters in Absecon. He fished in Cape Cod, where his biggest fish ever was a 34-pound striped bass. He said that since he started the business he has less time to go fishing. So when his son started to talk about it, he thought it was a great idea, and that's just what it turned out to be.

The LIL’ ANGLER II.. Brings On The Drums

Sometimes you’re the Windshield.  Sometimes You're the Bug.
May12, 2012

122cm_drum(Lewes, DE) - Our trip began just after 3:00pm Saturday, as we departed from Lewes, Delaware aboard the LIL ANGLER II in search of Black Drum.  The Charter included Colby Hastings of Seaford DE, Bobbi Jo Dean of Georgetown DE, Dick Papp of Milton DE, and birthday boy, John Meredith of Lincoln DE.  We headed directly up the Delaware Bay to my favorite area, only to find it littered with other boats already fishing.  Shifting gears to 'Plan B,' we located another area with plenty of room.  A light west wind, combined with the start of the ebb made for ideal conditions.  We anchored in 15 feet of water, and let out about 500 feet of anchor line to get the LIL ANGLER II just where I wanted it.  Once anchored and pinned on the rode, fresh surf clams from Lewes Harbor Marine were promptly shucked and deployed on a fish finder rig using 4 ounces or weight.  Thirty pound fluorocarbon leaders up to 20 inches long were snelled to 8/0 Gamagstu circle hooks.

After an hour bait soak and several bait refreshing, angler Dick Papp hooked into his first Delaware Bay black drum! The fish measured 34 ½ inches, and weighed in at approximately 28lbs.  Bobbi Jo Dean hooked up next, hauling in a 29 inch, 18 pound fish.  Bobbi Jo also scores a second fish around 21 pounds.  Next up, John Meredith hooks what we can tell from experience, is going to be a beast.  What followed was a battle lasting and hour and twenty five minutes! While John is still in the battle of his life, Dick Papp landed a nice 35 pounder, and Bobbi Jo hooks up again. This time however, he hands the rod off to Colby, who has yet to catch one.  Colby’s efforts pay off with a 34 pound fish.  John Meredith finally lands his biggest fish ever, tipping the scales at 54.75 pounds, and first ever Delaware Fishing Tournament citation and patch.  As the saying goes, at this point of the day, The LIL ANGLER II is without a doubt 'the windshield.'

How fast things can change......
