6/11 Tilefish Trip Report
Sunday night tile fish trip was a good one! We had a good catch of mostly medium to jumbo golden tile fish with a number of
them from 15 to 33 pounds.
Fishing was good early in the day, it slowed down a little bit mid-day, and then picked up
again later in the day. We had several double headers and good action for everyone.
We also hooked up, what was most
likely a large tuna, that almost spooled the reel. We turned it for a little bit but, then the line broke when it crossed
a lobster pot. It was on electric reel which is not the best for fighting tuna.
A large blue shark also paid us a visit
and stole a couple of Tilefish.
The largest fish of the trip was a 34 pound tile fish caught by Jimmy Kornias from Hopelawn
NJ with a 34lb tilefish.
His friend Gus had the hot hand catching several several large tile fish and a double header.
( the photos of Gus are different fish not the same one over and over)
Paul McMillan from Howell New Jersey caught a
29 and a half pounder on a jig. He also caught a double header on a single jig which had a hook on the bottom and an assist
hook on the top, and several other fish including a white hake.
Particularly effective were a couple of Jigs made by
the Old Man's tackle box.
We have never had many anglers jig for tilefish before but, I was impressed with the way
and they definitely out fished baited hooks.
The jigs were fished with the small piece of strip bait
on them and with 30 pound test braid. All all that was required was a light a very light bouncing of the jig on the bottom
to entice a bite.
(we should have Jigs available on our next trip and, also at boganstackle.com very soon)
There is space available on upcoming trips.

We picked away at the blue fish today. Some drifts were better than others. They were biting on jigs
The more experienced Anglers had the edge today as you've had to work a little bit harder to catch them
but, there were plenty of fish around.
We read them very good at times and saw them on the surface from time to time
At the end of the trip we also saw great show by a humpback whale that was slapping its tail and fins on
the surface and also breached several times.

Blue fishing was good today. We did not have to go too far from the inlet and we found Birds working
over schools of Bluefish that were feeding close to shore.
We caught Bluefish from 3 to 12 lbs on Jigs and Croc lures. The action was good until slack tide,
then there was a lull until the tide turned, and they started feeding again.
The pool winner was:
Dan Saggiomo from Corning NY with a 12lb bluefish
At times there was quite an area of fish with multiple people hooked
up all around the boat. Hopefully we can do a repeat tomorrow. The weather looks good and there's plenty of space available.
The big Jamaica will be sailing at 7:30 a.m.
