Sea Hunter

July 16, 2018:
The week started off on Monday aboard the Sea Hunter with a decent pick of fluke and some limits. Capt. Rob Semkewyc said a light crowd on Tuesday saw slower fishing with a few nice keepers being boated. Wednesday also saw picky fishing, while Thursday's trips saw a better number of keepers come ever the rails. Friday's fishing was not as good with some keepers but the short action was not as good. One fellow (RJ) did get his three keeper limit. Rob told me over the weekend Saturday saw a decent crowd and decent bite of fluke. "When it comes to Sunday it looks like the weatherman scare people off and the fishing was on the slow side," he said.

    Wind against tide conditions started off the week aboard the Sea Hunter with a catch dominated by shorts with a few anglers boating limits, said Capt. Rob Semkewyc. A light crowd on Tuesday saw the fishing get off to a slow start and get better as the day progressed which resulted in a decent catch with a 5.6-pound pool fish. Wednesday saw a catch heavy with short fish, while Thursday's trip fished some different areas which produced a fair pick of flatties with a 4-12-pound pool fish and Vinnie catching a limit. Rob said the weekend was really tough with a stiff nor'east on Saturday and wind against tide on Sunday. There are plenty of fish around but the weather has been anything but favorable.

    The fishing on the Sea Hunter started the week off on a slow start because of windy conditions and poor drifting condition, said Capt. Ron Semkewyc. Conditions did an about face on Tuesday and served up some good numbers of keepers and shorts. Rob said he will take Tuesday's fishing everyday. That didn't pan out as Wednesday's fishing was much slower with wind against drift conditions and a pick of fish being seen. Poor conditions kept the boat in port on Thursday. Fishing started to bounce back on Friday with a good amount of shorts and some nice keepers topped by a 9.54-pound fluke by John Corvino from the Catskills. Rob said both days on the weekend saw light crowds, more than likely because of the hot weather. Both days also saw poor drifting conditions which served up a pick of shorts and keepers.

    "Fluke fishing is starting to produce some better numbers of both keepers and shorts," reported Capt. Rob Semkewyc of the Sea Hunter. Tuesday's trip started off the week with a light crowd pulling some nice size keepers and plenty of shorts with a 5-pounder the pool fish. Wednesday's trip saw another light crowd enjoy a good pick of shorts and keepers to 5 pounds, while fishing on Thursday saw plenty of shorts but fewer keepers with a 6.8-pound pool fish. Windy conditions forced the boat to move in calmer waters on Friday which produced fewer fish. However, Joe Ullrich from Mahwah took the pool with a 4-12-pound fluke. Rob said Sunday's trip saw the slowest day of the season as far as keepers go. The boat had action with shorts but keepers were harder to come by. However the biggest fluke of the year so far was boated by Pat Lassen which was just under 8 pounds.

    Tuesday's trip aboard the Sea Hunter started off with a good pick of fluke to 4-pounds until the south wind came up. Capt. Rob Semkewyc said his evening striped bass trip was a bust as the only fish that were caught were a few stripers on the troll by smaller boats. Wednesday's trip had to brave windy conditions and fish shallow water which produced a pick of shorts and few keepers. Friday's trip found better condition and started off slow but picked up as the wind slowed down. The boat had to come in early to have a patron checked out because of a medical emergency. A good crowd on Saturday found wind against tide conditions but still managed to put a decent amount of flatties on the decks.
