Jersey Hooker Iron Man 12+ Hours Striper Limits +++

5/26/2011 
We were glad to have John Maccormack , Tim Oconnor , Kevin Tague, Brian Sullivan, Kevin Patterson and Uncle Jack Shute  aboard the Jersey Hooker to live-line for some Trophy Stripers .... Day Started off Excellent  within 30 seconds of fishing First Mate Nick Graciano was teaching the boys the proper way to snag and live-line bunkers and smash a nice 30 pounder crashes  the bunker Nick  had snagged.... The  crew  made baits while some of the others were live-line-ing some bunkers.  We made about   30 bait and we head off to 60'  of water where the  fleet had them on  Wednesday  we made a couple drifts on some makes and  only had one  run-off and a couple bluefish bites ... a thick thick  fog was blown in from the south east  and  we were left with 0 viz @ times we got up on the troll after about   an hour or so our second  striper hit the  deck ....   fishing was   slow ....   I was talking with other charter captains  who did not do so well .....  we pulled the spoons in a steamed north in  pea soup  ....  I felt like i was playing the game battle ship with all of the other boats out there  but im very comfortable with my radar skills and the the skills of the other captains  in the striper fleet ...   We had a few run offs in  the fleet made a couple drifts. @ this poin we  were going into  over time but I promised my guys a limit catch  and that is what i did for them. I decided to head west into shallow water  found some bunkers that were stacked up made some baits... Then  all  hell broke loose    2 - 5 fish  hooked up each drift   25-35 pounds .....   after the  4th drift the bunker scattered and we headed south toward home  got on another  school of bunks stacked up and   we were in the bass  3 drifts and 4 fish hooked up  on  every  drift ... 
The guys brought their  12 fish home largest  was  35 pounds .
It was a fair day of  fishing I  thank my charter for the business ...
