Sandy Hook 10/12
I heard the reports had been slow for bass but I wanted to do a shakedown trip to get ready for the main run.  Left the dock around 8:45 and anchored up at Romer Shoal Light.  Clam chummed for about three hours and managed to catch a boat load of sharks, skates, and sea robbins.  Moved up to the Shrewsberry Rocks to see if I could catch my son a couple of blues.  There were plenty of birds and some smalls blues breaking the surface but couldn't get them to take any thing shinny.  I did manage to catch a nice fluke on a hopkins jig.  The winded dropped and the ocean was around 60 degrees.  A couple of more weeks to go before it really begins to turn on.

On a separate note, I tried to move in close and get a nice picture of what looked like a small aircraft carrier entering the hook around 3:00PM.  I guess I got a little too close and was greeted by a couple a small commando cruisers with what looked like m-16s mounted on the bow pointed at me.  They told me not so nicely to get lost and I was more than happy to oblige.  Next time I will used a telescopic lens.
