Talking Labor Day weekend Flats, Salt, Pike!

Saturday-
Caught my fresh live bait on the Musky and accidentally caught 2 Rainbow Trout. It’s August and the western streams are running cool. Lots of surface action out there in the late afternoon. 1 of the Trout looked like a fall stockie and the other was about 24 inches long, silver and looked like a Steelhead. Lost that one at my feet unfortunately. Haha! What’s a net?
Flatheading was slow but managed to land twins at about 15 lbs. a piece. Not bad considering I haven’t been hitting it hard this year. They put up one hell of a fight that’s for sure. The first one ripped lots of drag. The second one just had one good long run and tons of angry head shakes.




Sunday-
Hit the back bays, Channels and inlets for Fluke. Caught some shorts on the incoming tide but couldn’t buy a keeper. The tide switched to outgoing and again with that east wind I couldn’t catch a fish. Seemed to be the same for everyone I talked to unfortunately. This hurricane will probably shut down the season depending on the storms track. Wound up with 15 shorts to 16 inches in 9 hours of fishing. That my friends is horrendous! Just terrible! I usually do well from land this time of year. Ahhhhhgggggg bummer!!!

Monday-
Hit the Pike grounds in between rain storms. Not much moving for me and the water was super low. Did manage to catch 3 Pike around 30ish inches or so. Very feisty little guys were jumping all over the place when hooked. I’d like to thank my fellow NJFers for saving me a few small fish! Lol! Weekend well spent and finishing it off with a rack of baby back ribs slow cooked on the grill.
TIGHT LINEZ FELLAZ!!!

My dad and I were drenched from the rain today. Rain was really unpredictable throughout the late morning, got heavy then turned off. Nice flatheads and fun looking pike.

Trout are easy to come by this time of year in NJ. I’ll post a pic of a wild Brown on a 9/0 Catfish hook this weekend hopefully! LOL!!!
