September 2010

September was a good month of fishing for the MISS SUSIE. The Rockfish which were very tricky to catch during the dog days of summer showed back up in excellent numbers and we were able to catch them with a wide array of methods from top water lure casting , jigging, live lining and trolling. Bluefish were also very abundant and provided us with lots of action. The Spanish Mackerel bite was good for only a few days early in the month, but it did provide us with a decent catch of these tasty fish for a few trips.
The live lining using live spot for bait just picked up a few days ago and as the water cools and more fish move to structure, the bite should only get better. October should be a great month for live lining and also a great month for casting and trolling for breaking Bluefish. Then in November, the Trophy Stripers will arrive in our waters. And for the months of November and December we will be catching these huge Stripers from 30 inches to over 50 inches. For the last few fall seasons, the very best bite for these trophy fish has been in our own backyard, and this season we hope for a repeat.
Here is a list of dates still available for Fall fishing aboard MISS SUSIE………

October 2010

WOW!!!!  One word that describes the fishing action over the last week and 1/2.  The warmer than normal temps have kept the bait sized Spot in our area in great numbers and the Rockfish from 18 inches the 37 inches are eating them up!!!  The live lining is as good as it gets right now and with warm temps foretasted for the end of this month, the live lining bite should stay red hot for another week or two.  The white perch bite has also gotten pretty good.  These tasty bottom dwellers are good fun on light tackle.  Here is a list of dates available for some awesome light tackle fishing…………..

Capt. Greg Buckner

The first two weeks of this month have showcased some excellent live lining for Rockfish and Bluefish.  The Rockfish we are now catching range in size from 18 inches to the mid 30 inch mark.  The Bluefish are between 1 and 5 pounds in size.  The larger Rockfish (over 28 inches) are not biting every trip, but the rockfish bite has been excellent, with lots of action and limits filled on every trip.  The bottom fishing close to home has been very good for bait sized spot, with  a few keeper sized spot, croaker, and white perch every trip.  The red hot live lining action should continue for the next two weeks, before we switch up to trolling for the fall Trophies.   Sometime over the first week of November the Fall Trophies will be in our area, and we will be catching Stripers from 20 lbs to over 50 lbs everyday.  Below, I have listed dates available for the rest of October and also dates available for the fall trophy run.
