Sandy Hook Fall Bass Run

I have moved the Compass Rose north to Sandy Hook for the legendary fall striped bass run.  I will begin running trips in mid-October through Thanksgiving weekend.  The boat is kept at the Oceanview Marina in Sea Bright.  This will be the fourth season I have moved the boat north for the fall and we have had great success with the bass.  20-30 striped bass days are not uncommon and it is a very short ride to the grounds in the Raritan Bay or "around the hook" to Shrewsberry Rocks.  Give me a call if if you want do some world class fall bass fishing.

Very Poor End to the season

I have been avoiding this post because I was hoping things would improve-but they didn't.  Since my last post in Mid August, we have had two hurricanes skirt the coast and two nor-easters with a third one tomorrow. This was the worst end to a season I have ever experienced.  I have not fished in the ocean since 8/15,and now that the fluke season is over, it looks I may not get another chance.

I am kicking around the idea of moving the boat north again to Sandy Hook for the fall striper run. I need to catch some fish in a bad way and Sandy Hook in the fall offers the best opportunity.  

I had a fun season while it lasted and caught some great fish.  It goes to show that when the weather window is there, you have to take advantage of the opportunity and go fishing. 

I will keep everyone informed of Sandy Hook and what types of trips I will be offering.
