Mid-Shore wreck trip report
NEW OFFSHORE WRECK TRIPS SCHEDULED FOR February 24, and 25th. Also, March 2 and 3rd.
 
Fishing was slow again in our last mid range Wreck trip. We caught several Pollock, some ling, and a couple of cod.
The Pool Winner was: Jack Burke had the pool winning Pollock, which made about 7 pounds.
We are going to head further offshore on our remaining trips and fishing Wrecks, 25 to 55 miles offshore for cod, Pollock, and ling. The trips will sail at 4 AM returning approximately 6 PM to give us some more time for the additional travel distance. 
The fare is a little bit higher just to defer some of the additional fuel cost. If you were already booked prior to the fare change, you still have your reservation and the sailing time, and boarding time remain the same. Just the return time will be an hour later.
 
We also have some new Tilefish Trips on our schedule sailing in March leaving 11 PM. You can book tickets for upcoming trips at www.bigjamaica.com. If you have difficulty booking at the website, you can call 732-528-5014 for help

The Present regulations allow us to keep one, and the rest were either let go or lost.
At times they were 100 ft thick underneath the boat.
We hooked them on the tile rigs, and on jigs.

Tilefish Report 8/10

We just returned from our Southern canyon tilefish trip and it was a good one!

It started out a little slow in the morning but as the day went on fishing kept getting better.

At one point we had double headers coming over the rail non-stop.

One target We were seeking on this trip was a record breaking blueline tilefish. (The current state record is 23 lb 4 oz)

We thought we had several candidates on one drift when five big Bluelines came over the rail.

The biggest one was caught by Ed Pax from Palmar Pa weighing 24 lb on one scale and 22 on another.

Unfortunately, when we returned to the dock the official weight on the certified scale was 22 lbs. still a great catch.

In addition to Blue line tile and golden tile we also caught some rose fish, and some white hake.

Fishing was so good we've decided to add another Southern canyon tile trip leaving 10PM August 30.

We've also added another offshore tuna trip leaving 11PM Sunday August 29th.

Jamaica will be sailing for blue fish everyday at 7:30AM when we are not offshore.
