Capt. Joe DeGruttola aboard Chasin’taila Sportfishing hit this monster 99-inch bluefin on May 16 (prior to the NOAA “atrophy” adjustment) in just 75 feet of water off Sandy Hook, in view of land!


Mike Cataline sent a quick report from the Delaware/Rehoboth Canal where his 14-year-old son was getting it done on striped bass as well as fluke including this 26-incher that dragged that Boga down to the 6.75-pound mark.
Caleb Erwin (8 years old) of Churchville PA caught his first fish ever this summer while fishing with his uncle Michael Austin out of Boat World Marina on the Maurice River. Shedder crab and squid was the ticket for this 19- and 18-inch pair of Delaware Bay weakfish.
“My first night out fishing on the beach since COVID-19 hit the U.S. with my son, Jared and his friend, was on June 15,” said Charles Terefenko, showing off this big drum in the suds at Sea Bright. “Our first time catching these sea monsters off the beach,” Charles added.


Capt. Dave Ricci of Team Blue Eyes Fishing had an epic day of fluking in early August running out of Great Egg Inlet getting a limit together on tap dancer rigs and orange 5-inch Gulp baits, inshore by 10:15 a.m.
