Persuader II

August 13, 2018:
Capt. Denny Dillon of the Persuader II said that fishing was very good this past week. Most trips have been yielding limits of striped bass to around 40 pounds and limits of black sea bass to around 5 pounds which is making for very happy customers. On Saturday they also spent some time fluke fishing and did very well with a lot of fish in the 4- to 6-pound range and one real doormat that went 10 pounds and 1 ounce.

    Capt. Denny Dillon of the Persuader II reported that striped bass fishing was good for the early part of the week but slowed down some mid-week due to the weather and an influx of bluefish. They have been doing very well for black sea bass and big "dinner plate" scup. Fluke fishing also seemed to pick back up a bit this past week and they picked up a few nice ones on Saturdays trip. Capt. Denny had an offshore trip planned for Sunday but had to cancel due to one of the group being sick.

    Capt. Denny Dillon of the Persuader II reported that the striped bass fishing was pretty good this past week with plenty of bluefish mixed-in. There have been times when the bass just don't want to bite, but when they are feeding the fishing can be very good. Black sea bass fishing has been excellent and they have also been finding good numbers of really large, dinner-plate-sized, scup. Capt. Denny hasn't been doing much for fluke fishing but they are picking up a few here and there.

    The fishing was up and down and back up again for striped bass according to Capt. Denny Dillon of the Persuader II with bass to the 40-pound class early in the week, a slow-down mid-week but turning back on with fish to the 35-pound range by the weekend. When his clients were so inclined to do some bottom fishing, both black sea bass and porgies have been downright excellent with about as many of each as you want to hook. Fluke began slow but by the end of the week was much better for both size and keeper ratio. No offshore trips planned this past week but he has a few on the books in the coming weeks.

    Capt. Denny Dillon of the Persuader II reported a very good week of fishing. Big striped bass have moved in around the island with plenty of fish in the 30- to 50-plus-pound range being caught. There have been bluefish mixed-in with the bass on some trips, but not so many that they are a nuisance. Black sea bass have been big and plentiful along with scup, and they started finding better numbers of keeper fluke this past week.
