During the week of November 14th, Capt. Ray and mate Kieran had Jay and his crew out on an eight-hour striped bass trip aboard Miss Liane Charters. Starting off with a beautiful sunrise, the crew found steady pickings throughout the day, ending up with four nice keepers for dinner. “It was beautiful day on the water and the crew was a pleasure to have aboard,” Capt. Ray said, calling the striped bass fishing out of Barnegat Inlet “hot” with action expected to continue through much of December.

“I’m hearing about good water moving into the Hudson, but the Triple Wrecks yellowfin thing is pretty much done,” shared Capt. Cool Ray Lopez from Miss Liane Sportfishing when we made contact late Friday evening. The captain will be hot on the pot hopping mahi bite when the weather allows, and will prowl Hudson for yellowfin and longfin, conditions permitting, for a short while until the stripers arrive.

Capt. Cool Ray Lopez on Miss Liane Sportfishing was busy on the boat when we buzzed late Saturday afternoon, but he relayed that it was great trip to the Triple Wrecks the day before the nor’easter roared in, with on-fire chunking for tuna to 60 pounds. Commented the skipper, “It’s the fall weather window and you have to get out when you can because it won’t stay open much longer.” He’s figuring the inshore and mid-range chunk and popper action will continue through October, with longfin and yellowfin also invading the canyons.

Capt. Cool Ray Lopez on Miss Liane Sportfishing said it was guest shot for him and Mrs. Lopez on Capt. Kevin’s Grumpy as daughter Capt. Liane made a surprise visit from Miami to join them for shots at yellowfin at the Triple Wrecks. “There must have been 300 boats out there, and we saw some tuna that had to be 100 pounds caught,” shared Capt. Cool Ray, adding that they put a trio to 65 pounds on ice. He’ll be out again by this weekend as conditions improve.

Capt. Cool Ray Lopez from Miss Liane Sportfishing was readying for the Manasquan Marlin & Tuna Club’s 40th Annual Offshore Open where he’ll be fishing this week aboard Capt. Jimmy Zavacky’s Reel Determined. After the competition, Capt. Ray said he’s eager to get back to pursuing the yellowfin and mahi in his favorite areas. “Plenty of fish, lots of action and there is plenty more to come,” he proclaimed.

“Now is definitely the time to go for tuna,” stressed Capt. Cool Ray Lopez from Miss Liane Sportfishing, noting that the yellowfin in particular are providing simply mind-blowing opportunities. A run late last week with Mark Seeker from Hillsborough and his twin brother Mike visiting from Fernando Beach, FL along with buddy “Raritan Bay” Doug enjoyed some wild chunking with butterfish and jigging Shimano Butterfly jigs. Unfortunately there were far more hook ups than fish going in the box, but it was a fun time for all. “Lots of crazy action and fish lost, some close to the boat, and it was a bite that was wild,” said the skipper. At dockside, the one yellowfin that made it to the ice pile hit the 54-pound mark on the scale. Capt. Cool Ray is hopped for the soon-to-bust-wide-open mid-range and inshore mahi fishery.

Capt. Cool Ray Lopez aboard Miss Liane Sportfishing says that yellowfin and bluefin opportunities should remain good in the mid-range areas, and he has his favorite areas that he’ll be chunking, trolling, jigging and popping. He’s excited about the surge in mahi activity around the pots and is expecting a dorado explosion during the coming weeks as more of these luscious migrants move in. “Light tackle, lots of fun and great eating,” exhorts the Cool One.

Cool Ray Lopez on Miss Liane Sportfishing was in the middle of a fluke tournament drift when we made contact early Sunday afternoon, but he shared that it was good fishing on the troll for yellowfin both mid range and in the canyons just before Isaias came to town. “We’re back out on tuna and mahi charters this week,” said Cool Ray, just as there was a flattie hook up.
