Fluke Fishing

PARTY BOAT FLUKE FISHING RECOMMENDATIONS For Party Boat Fluke (Summer Flounder) fishing, I prefer 15 to 25 pound test monofilament depending on conditions, with a fairly stiff 6′ to 6’6″ rod either spinning or conventional. You need to be prepared to accommodate a variety of drift conditions and have an ample supply of bank sinkers…

Reel Journey

THE UNBELIEVABLE JOURNEY OF A SPINNING REEL© Well folks there are fish tales and there are true stories, and like God, or my friends Dave & Mike could attest, this really did happen. Sometime about 1981 I was 14yrs old, I decided that I wanted a new boat rod and spinning reel, so off to the TackleBox in Garfield, New Jersey I went. Richard “Binky” Wilson (R.I.P) owned the joint and had been friends with my father since he was a teenager. For me, there was just no other place to buy a new rod & reel. Binky was always able to fit me with exactly what I needed within my budget when I was young. The man had a way of giving you this look to which when he swore by a product you did not question it, ya…

Sea Sick

SEASICKNESS CONSIDERATIONS Fishing aboard the Miss Beach Haven should be a day of fun not a voyage of misery!

Seasickness occurs when your body, eyes and inner ear all send different signals to the brain resulting in confusion, queasiness, and nausea. The rocking motion of the boat causes all objects on board to move constantly with respect to a fixed…

What To Bring

WHAT ITEMS TO TAKE DEEP SEA FISHING There’s nothing worse than heading out to sea only to have conditions change and you are not prepared. This could mean something to do with your clothing, health, food or fishing tackle. Being comfortable and well equipped at sea can help contribute to the success of your fishing trip. Here is a list of items you should bring party boat fishing: An extra Sweatshirt (Hoodie / Hoody) Even in the early days’ summer, if the water is still cold a stiff breeze could chill things down to the point where you are uncomfortable. A vented wide-brimmed hat with chin straps for the summer, spring or fall to help protect your head from sunburn. A Trooper Hat for winter months. These hats especially the ones with the vinyl outside will keep your head and…

Wreck Fishing

PARTY BOAT WRECK FISHING – BLACKFISH (TOG) & SEABASS When fishing the wrecks for Blackfish(Tog) and Black Sea Bass on a party boat, I recommend a conventional reel and rod with a solid backbone but with a somewhat sensitive tip. I prefer a length of 6’6″ or even 7ft especially for the harder fighting Blackfish…
