April 22, 2017
2017 Kickoff was a Bust!
It was a nice day for a scenic cruise. We saw lots of the southern coastline, a few whales and at times many porpoises too. The Barnegat Lighthouse is always a treat to see. Unfortunately, we saw zero fish on the end of the lines. Not one fish was caught in the ocean going fleet. Tomorrow if we get out I'm planning on Flounder fishing in the river for the morning. Flounder have been biting in the river ok to good most of the week. The only Bluefish report is from the same area of the river. With the forecast for very bouncy early in the day Sunday. We will stay inside until 11am- noon then venture into the ocean when it calms late morning if necessary
2016 Finale was Fun and Lots of Stripers
Many regular customers made their last showing of the year and were delighted to many Stripers the first half of the day. Weatherman George put on a show catching 8 bass and a Blue. Many had a bonus and a keeper fish to take home and threw back some. The Wednesday Gang:Bob,Ray, Stoney, Jack were present Bob did well and Jack after a few weeks off had a fine finish.
LIGHTS OUT STRIPED BASS FISHING ALL DAY TODAY. Bonus limit before 9:30am. Shads, Krocs & Poppers all worked, shads best. Most people had many Stripers tossing back a handful or more along with keeping 2 each. Great Day!
VERY GOOD ACTION FOR STRIPERS. After a few days of tough weather we were back at it again this morning. The winds were still blowing from the west but the fish were happy to cooperate once the tide changed mid-morning. Swim Shads & Krocs worked best this afternoon. Hi-Hook today was Eric who had a dozen Bass and a few Blues. Brian, Bryce and Samantha combined for over 20 Bass and a bunch of Blues. Weather looks nice into early next week. Come on down before its all over!
EPIC Day for Stripers! Great weather, wonderful customers and SUPER ACTION today. "Deadly George" with his 15+ Stripers put on a clinic in the pulpit schooling many of the QM faithful. The other George just steps away did the same. Bill, Paul and Kenny combined for 18 Bass and a few Blues. Crabman even had a limit and threw back a handful & Kate had 9 Bass to 31." Shads were the best but other jigs worked too. Weather is NO SAIL Tuesday & Wednesday. We should be back at it Thursday and Friday. See ya aboard late in the week
VERY GOOD STRIPERS TODAY! After a tough Day yesterday the bass turned on and Bit well all afternoon. Weather looking absolutely best of the week tomorrow Monday hope to see you aboard!
It started off like it was gonna be a kick ass day! Unfortunately, the first drift was the best of the day. Erik limited out on that first drift and we had a bunch of slot size fish too. The rest of the day I read the fish as thick as you could read them but they had lockjaw. We did pick a few more bass and a few blues to round out the day. In a word, frustrating! Tomorrow, I bet they bite! See you aboard
Black Friday provided some of the best Striper Bass Action of the Fall season to day! Lots of fish on top providing action on poppers for those who had them. While Swim Shads also worked well too. Many limits were had and Hi-hook Dan had 9 fish, Gary was close behind with 8. Weather looks very nice into Monday
NICE DAY WITH MIXED SIZED STRIPERS!
Lonnie and Jim Steel had a nice day in the pulpit. Jim was hi hook boating 4 but lost a bunch more. Party Time Josh represented with a nice Keeper Bass. Most were 25"- 30". Nice action with lots of reading and fish on top. If they really wanted to eat it could have been very good lots of fish around this week. Weather looks nice all weekend!
The last Marathon trip of the season was a success! Lots of Stripers with some Blues mixed together. Sean & Chase combined for 10 Stripers to 30" and a handful of Blues. We had lots of Slot sized fish 24"-28" getting out limit and throwing back a bunch. The keepers were tougher but almost had one for all customers. Fish were taken on jigs, shad & Mojos. Weather looks nice for Wednesday thru the weekend
Nov 20 & 21
No Sail too windy
CONGRATS TO LONG TIME DECKHAND ERIK! His first child arrived on Sunday, Pearl. The Gorgeous Weather continued! Slow all morning capturing only a few Blues. Late in the day we found mixed sized Stripers up to 31". Mainly slot sized 24"-28" with a few keepers over 28" and a bunch of short fish thrown back
Another Very Nice Day! Great Weather & Solid Bass Action
Great Weather with some Bass to 37"
SUPER DUPER STRIPERS & BLUES! It was GAME ON 10 minutes from the dock this morning. Loads of Stripers crashing the bunkers and the snag and drop was ON! The first hour we had our boat limit of Stripers in the 28"-43" size bracket. We spent a few hours cranking on Jumbo Blues the rest of the morning. When the folks had enough of that we went back and found the bait and whales and managed a few more Striped Bass and a bunch more Blues to end the day. GREAT DAY! We will try tomorrow morning to sail our Striper Marathon trip. Remember we are SOLD OUT this Wednesday & Thursday, so please join us tomorrow or Friday. Friday's weather is forecast to very nice.
Early Action Stripers & Late Action Jumbo Blues! Nice Day
Weather very nice for Monday and it may be nicest day of week. Tuesday looking tough and may be rain & windy
What a difference a day makes! Very Good Action today with Jumbo Bluefish to 19 pounds. This fall season has really been up & down fishing. Somedays we have more Blues than Stripers. Then the next day more Stripers than Blues. Everyday has been different with more good days vs bad. Weather looks very nice Sunday & Monday
Happy Veterans Day! Thank You for Serving this wonderful nation
Today was a struggle! Most of the fleet except the Cock Robin had a very tough day. We did manage a few but not nearly enough. The Blues did not show at all and the wind kept us stuck to the beach and we could not get off to look. Tomorrow the wind will be less and diminishing as the day grows long. There were fish around but very hard to catch.
Another Good Day! Weatherman forecast was wrong for a change to the fisherman's side. Turned out to be a nice day and the Jumbo Blues and Bass cooperated. If you are flexible Sunday is the nicest day of the next 3. Hope to see you aboard
Good Action for Blues to 18 pounds with a few Bass mixed in.
Gorgeous Weather but very slow fishing today. We did a couple Blues early with a nice Bass 44" for Troy to win the pool. I found a nice area of big fish on top rolling and milling but only cold get a few bites out of them. Hoping the clouds tomorrow help the situation. Weather looks calm, cloudy with a chance of a spot shower. This is usually good weather for Stripers to bite. Hope to see you aboard
Very Rough early made for a tough day. When the seas began to calm the Blues started to bite.
Stripers Early! Some Blues mid-day not enough overall though. Looked good but the weekend boat traffic trampled the action quickly. Weather looking good all week! Tuesday looks like the best early week. See ya aboard
Another Outstanding Day on the water! Lots of Jumbo Blues provided some nice action on jigs! We started the morning trying to beat the little boats to some Stripers breaking under birds. The little boats just beat the fish down fairly quickly and the action was over shortly after it started. We managed to pick some keeper Stripers casting shads. Jim Steel had a limit: a Slot 27" plus a keeper 32". When that action ended we ran about 8 miles and found good action with Jumbo sized Bluefish to 18pounds. Weather looking very nice into mid-week!
Super Bluefish action most of the day with some Stripers on Bunker early! Thie weekend looks very nice. Sunday will be less crowded vs Saturday, Hope to see you aboard
SUPER Monster Sized Bluefish Action with a few Stripers mixed! A limit of Weakfish to 20" was a nice icing on the cake. Friday is fishable and we will sail. Weekend weather looks GORGEOUS.
HOPE TO SEE YOU ABOARD
Blues were the main action today. We did manage a few nice Bass mixed in! Randolph won the pool with a 40" Striper caught on a chartreuse Mojo. Weather looks nice again for tomorrow. Friday will be very breezy. Weekend shaping up nicely
Hot Action Early for Stripers up to 47" The bite was over by 10am and we struggled to get more bass the rest of the day. We did get a couple along with some Blues and plenty of weakfish. Overall it was a good day! Hi-hook Rob Nace, had 4 Stripers to 43" Jack Schocklin, Charlie and Richie"1000" had 2 each. Mojo's worked well along with live bunker. Weather looking very nice tomorrow and the Wed Gang will be down
Beautiful Day but a far cry from yesterdays hot bite. We did manage a handful of Bass to 34" We did read fish and here was lots of bait but they were not in a biting mood. Forecast for the week: Monday is a NO GO with very breezy conditions. Tuesday into late week look very nice! See ya aboard
Solid Action on almost all Stripers up to 45". The 6" swim shads white, chartreuse &casting 2oz & 4oz Mojo's of the same colors worked best! Bert Deluhy was Hi-Hooks with 5. Tom & Samantha combined for 5. Nina and Dave had 6. Most all were keeper Stripers with a few of the smaller fish getting Bonus Tags. Weather looks very nice into mid-week. Hope to see you aboard
Finally some Stripers! Not a great day but read a lot at times and we did pick some nice keeper size Bass plus one Slot fish. Jim Stieves won the pool with a 34" fish
After days of hard NW winds we finally were back at it again this morning! There was a considerate amount of life all over the beach. Birdlife as good as you could as for, but no Stripers in it :-( We did have action with lots of small weakfish to 13" almost all had to be thrown back though. Lots of small blues to 1 pound and a few Albys and one Bonito that took the pool. The bait and life is starting to arrive now we need the large Blues and Stripers to show up. Tomorrow looks nice and we will have enough to sail. See ya aboard
Nice Weather and Action for Blues up to 15 pounds! Great October weather continued today. It took about an hour to get the Blues biting consistently, but when the tide changed the Blues cooperated. It was all on bait and pretty good for a couple of hours. Weather: Friday looks better than Thursday!
Our first Striper Marathon of the season was terrible! Zero, no runs, no hits, no errors. Tomorrow we will back to Blues
Nice Action all on bait for Jumbo Blues today. After a very tough day Sunday we bounced right back today. Don Pecora and his buddy Joe combined for Monster Blues up to 19 pounds. Weather looks Super for Tuesday & Wednesday! Tuesday is our first Striper Marathon Trip 6:30AM departure returning later afternoon.
Nice weather and fishing today. All Jumbo size Blues again with bait outperforming jigs for most. Those who really stuck with the jigs ended up with plenty. Santos was high hook with over 10. Weather looks very nice for Sunday into mid week! See you aboard
Another Great Day on the water! The Blues were all large models today and bit OK all on bait. The picked and plucked all day and in the end had a catch. Jacob was hi-hook with 5 and many had 2-4 fish in the 10 -14 pound range. Weather gonna be rough tomorrow so we will not sail Friday. Weekend looks good with sunny skies, calm seas & seasonal temps. Hope to see you aboard
Gorgeous Day! Really nice folks and we caught some mixed sized blues! Jim Stieves had the biggest by far of the season, a 22 pounder! Many of the fish were smaller in the 3-5 pound range with some gaffers mixed in. Jigs worked best! Weather looks very good Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, Friday will be bouncy
VERY GOOD ACTION FOR JUMBO BLUES all on jigs. Great day! Weather looking calm again for Saturday only, so come on down tomorrow
What a gorgeous day! Calm seas, sunny skies and some Jumbo Blues to bend the rods. Not as good today as earlier in the week. The guys who put the time in at the rail fought a bunch and boated a few. We lost lots to the Bluefish jump and spit dance. Jigs overall were better and bait did get some bites at times too.
We are Sailing Thursday thru Saturday. Hurricane forecast has changed and it may not even come close to us. Next few days weather is very fishable and Saturday is forecast to be Calm. Monday we had a fine day with Jumbo Blues
See ya aboard
Did not sail too rough
JUMBO BLUES RETURN! Good Action jigging the Jumbos up to 18 pounds. The Wednesday Gang was out and had tired arms by days end. Weather window was only good for today. We are CANCELED Tuesday, Wednesday looks very iffy, and please check in as to whether we will fish Thursday & Friday
Well it huffed and puffed all week and the wolf is still blowing as I write. We will not sail Sunday. Monday appears to be the only day we will fish in the near future. Hope to see you aboard
After a rough weekend where we had to cancel Saturday morning and Sunday was rougher than forecast, we had nice beautiful Monday. We started off with a couple of drifts catching a couple dozen smaller blues 1-3 pounders. I made a 45 minute move and found a good bite on False Albacore and when that ended around noon we finished up picking some Jumbo Porgies. The better anglers had 5-10 ally's. Weather: The only decent day other than today is Wednesday. Tomorrow's tuna trip is cancelled
Gorgeous Day after a gloomy start. The winds lightened up the sun came out bright and temps were perfect. The fish bit too! Lots of small Blues 1-3 pounders on smaller diamond jigs. By 10:30am many had their fill of Blues and switched to bottom fishing. We had some nice keeper fluke, porgies and triggerfish. Nice Day! Saturday will be rough so please consider another day. Sunday will be a nicer day
Caught plenty of fish just not many of the intended ones. The Albys showed up played for very little then left. The Jumbo Porgy fishing was very good but we had to leave them biting to search out the Alby/Bonito. We only boated one moreAlby but some Macks and Blues. Friday weather looking very nice. Come on Down
Very Good Action for 1-3 pound Blues. Jim Stieves had a limit along with a few others all on jigs. We had some nice variety: Blues, Fluke, Porgies and sea bass(released). Ed won the pool with a nice Spanish Mackerel.
Very Good Alby's! Lots of Action for Alby on bait, jigs, soft plastics and buck tails too. "George the Weatherman" was the hot hand releasing 8 Alby and keeping a nice Mahi! Wednesday & Friday are regular 7:30am trips. Wednesday Gang plans on coming tomorrow. Thursday is an Open Boat Bonito & Alby trip departing 6AM. WEATHER LOOKS SUPER REST OF WEEK! This afternoon we had good jigging for 1-3 pound Blues, plus Macks and a nice Spanish Mackerel too.
Sept 17 & 18
The Super Mack action with some Bonito and Albys mixed in continued this weekend. Tuesday's Limited Bonito/Alby Trip has plenty of room. If you are interested give a call or pre-purchase your spot. Weather looks calm most of the week. See ya aboard
SUPER MACK ATTACK TODAY! We left the mackerel biting at 11:30am to go looking. Most had too many mackerel, and were ready to take a chance. I found some 2-3 pound Blues late. We were able to jig them and I will look thru this area first thing tomorrow morning. Weather looking very nice this weekend. See you aboard
Did not fish too rough
Sucked compare to yesterday! We went right back to where we left fish biting the day before but the water was dirty and the fish moved on. We did have some small Blues and Macks along with many sea bass we had to toss back due to the season being closed. I moved up to where we caught some large Blues and a few Albys yesterday morning but that was no good catching only Stony's pool winning jumbo Blue and a few Porgies. The pic below is from Yesterday's trip. I received too late to post. This is Norm who caught a nice Alby yesterday. Thursday we will NOT sail due to rough forecast. Friday looks very nice and will be back at it again at our normal 7:30am departure time
Limited Bonito & Alby Trip was a success! I wouldn't say screaming one but we had lots of variety including the intended species: Bonito, Albacore, Jumbo & cocktail Blues, Mackerel, Porgies & Sea Bass. Started with Jumbo Blues and some Alby's. We had them in the slick but never all that many and the slick calm sea and lots of sun made it very difficult to trick them. We did manage 15 or so Albys boated and released. I went looking found small Blues lots of Mackerel and a handful of nice sized Bonito. Rufus had 2 Bonito and won the pool. Weather looks best Wednesday & Friday. Wednesday Gang will be down tomorrow.
Sept 11 & 12
Did Not Sail Not enough participation Sunday & Monday.
Finally some signs of fall fishing! Big Blues and Albacore provided some action today! I read lots of fish but getting the Blues to bite was a problem. We did capture a bunch mainly on jigs and some on bait too. The Albys provided some nice action for about 2 hours. It was tough fishing but those who had the light tackle and knew how to do it caught a few. Bert was Hi-Hook with 3 Blues and 10 Alby
Finally back out on the water! We had great weather and did catch some but I was hoping for better. After a large storm it usually takes 2-3 days of normal seas to get everything back together. We captured some Mackerel, a handful of 1-3 pound Blues and some short Fluke and lots of sea robins. Not terrible after 6 days of 20-40KT NE winds
The Tropical Storm ruined the Labor Day Weekend with just some wind and big seas just a long NE Blow that will linger through Wednesday. We will definitely fish Friday . We had some good Bluefish Action Friday before the blow. Here are some pics from Friday's fishing and the boat ready to brace the storm
The Return of the Bluefish this afternoon! After a morning of Fluke and Seabass. Rick jumped up to the helm to point out some splashing fish. We checked it out and were pleasantly surprised! Lots of 3-5 pounds blues willing to eat the jigs. Jim Stives ended up with 8 Blues and lost a bunch of others. We had an hour of good jigging and got in late with our best catch of Blues since early July. Thursday's Weather looks calmest for next few days. See ya aboard
Great Weather and some nice action for SeaBass and Fluke!
Here are some nice pics and Fluke to over 7 pounds
It was a Mackerel Massacre this morning! We were on our way to the Fluke and Sea bass grounds by 10:15am this morning as we had bucketsand bags full of macks in less than an hour. We had action with the Fluke and Sebass but as usual not enough to keep with most getting tossed back
What an absolute GORGEOUS DAY! Lots of keeper SeaBass with Fluke plus an hour of good Mackerel Fishing. Ed won the pool with a nice Fluke
Good Action with Mainly SeaBass & Fluke with some Macks mixed in. Nice weather helping provide lots of action with a good number of keeper size Fluke and Sea Bass
Another Fantastic Day! Weather was glorious and the fishing even Better. Tons of Macks and after 11AM we switched up and had nice hour and a half of Fluke and Seabass
Another action packed day with mainly Fluke. Tons of short Fluke action with a bunch of nice Quality Keepers. Casey out with her father Gary showed up Gary catching more and bigger Fluke. Lots of smiling faces
Lots of Mackerel with Fluke and Sea Bass in the mix! 7 pound Fluke won the pool
We had some spectacular Fluking Action with lots of keepers
Fluke Action pretty good this AM. Lots of shorts with some quality Keepers mixed

Aug 12 & 13
Fluke and Seabass action! Mainly short fluke with some quality keeper Fluke and Seabass mixed in.
Fluke produced some quality keepers today!
Much better weather and action Sunday! With the absence of Blues and Mackerel past couple days we targeted Fluke and Sea Bass. Had some nice keeper Fluke to go along with short fluke action and some sea bass here and there. Weather was nice the piles were bending and people were having fun. Weather looks very nice next couple days!
Gorgeous Day on the water. The weather was Super, the customers were all enthusiastic and the fishing Steady. With lots of kids aboard today I stopped for some sea bass action at a few spots to bend the rods and many had their Sea Bass limit if 2 while throwing many back. After 10am I went looking for the Mackerel and got lucky and bombed into a few. It took a while to build. Slowly picking a fish or two every few minutes the first half hour became 2 - 5 every few minutes all around the boat. By the time we left for home we could see them swimming in the slick and many had 15-25 Mackerel. Chuck Noona, fishing a small jig and a teaser had well over 40. Bob Gieson brought a surprise guest along his nephew John and his family visiting from Carlsbad CA. John and I went to High School together. HIs boys William. Johnny & Andrew all had a Blast. The pic below is the Gieson's showing off their catch
Capt BP had a tough morning but pulled the rabbit out of the hat the last hour to save the day. Most had a nice catch by days end
SUPER ACTION today for Macks! Bob Gieson, Stoney & Jim Stieves combined for almost 300 Mackerel
Aug 1 & 2
Did not Sail due to rough seas and bad forecast
Fishing was Very Good in the rain for Macks
Mackerel Action was good until 11:30am Saturday. The sun was out the seas were calm and high hook had over 30 Mackerel, so Good Day overall
Very Good Action with Mackerel with some Seabass too. Today we picked away until 11am then crushed Macks the last 2 hours.
Was OK action for cocktail Blues for those who could cast and Mackerel were around the boatel day but tough to catch. Most everyone had some of both species so all in all an OK day.
July 22 & 23
Weather was very nice and cocktail sized Blues and lots of Mackerel cooperated well Saturday. Friday's action was Fantastic! It was mainly all cocktail Blues with Bert catching over 100 Blues for hi-hook. Weather looks nice again for Sunday into early next week. See ya aboard
An absolutely beautiful day on the Ocean with all the Blues and Chub Mackerel you could catch. The weather will be HOT next few days! Now's a great time to come fishing and beat the heat out on the water !!!
Wednesday we shifted gears. With the Macks not cooperating well on Tuesday, Seabass & Fluke were what we targeted in hopes of some action. We were not far if the Blues and Macks decided to bite. Lots of seabass kept folks busy and some Fluke too. Dusty won the pool with an 8 pounds Fluke. Tomorrow we will see what pans out. Weather looking great rest of week
Macks and cocktail size Blues not so good Tuesday. We have some fish and it wasn't a complete disappointment. The day just couldn't compare to the previous bunch of days
Another good Day with the Macks
Another Fantastic Day aboard the Queen Mary! All the Macks you can shake a stick at! Marcello and his boys said "We crushed them!" Grab your large mouth bass gear and come on down! Weeks weather looks nice with Tuesday & Thursday the shining stars. Hope to see you aboard
Calmed enough to make a go of it this morning and the wind came right back up when it was supposed to subside. I found an area of life with Mackerel and lots of bait and were surprised by the sharks we found there. Shortly after we anchored up we began to see sharks in the slick and some mackerel were wounded while being reeled in. We hooked up a few on the jigs and then switched a few over to bait with fresh Mackerel chunks for bait. For over 2 hours we held 2-6 sharks on around the boat. All were released up to almost 5' long and aprrox 60 pounds. They fought like crazy! I can't post videos here so look at our Facebook page if curious.
We did not try due to rough seas Saturday. Fished the River for the afternoon and had lots of action with short fluke and a few keepers.
Aug 7 pm
What a great trip for Paul Saitta's family trip. Rough weather kept us in the river and the action was great. Lots of short Fluke a couple keepers and at dusk a few short Stripers.
What a shame the wind came up much earlier than predicted today. We had a nice crowd but the rough seas put a damper on the day. We did pick at the Mackerel and blues but not what I had hoped for. Saturday will be Rough and we will probably not be able to sail, so look to Sunday or another weekend. Sunday should be good to go.
Aug 5 & 6
Gorgeous weather the past 2 days! Good mix of Blues and Macks both days with the fishing best early then a pick later in the day. Weather should be fine for tomorrow morning, Friday's trip. Sunday will be the much nicer day this weekend with Saturday a possible very rough day so plan on Friday or Sunday
A bit rough but good action all day mainly Mackerel
We did not have enough participation this morning. The wind is up so our afternoon is canceled
What a GORGEOUS DAY! Super weather and some action with Macks & Blues! Mitch from El Paso, TX had 25 Blues and Macks for Hi-Hook. Below is Sue Berger with a nice catch! Weather looking a bit windy for Monday. Tuesday looks OK but Wednesday thru Friday looking best. See ya aboard
Actually had OK action today with smaller blues and lots of Mackerel. We jigged with the A-17 size plain diamonds and picked awash best early and late. High hook had 21 Macks and 6 Blues nice day! Sunday weather looking great!
Beautiful Day but slow again today. The Blues never made their quick appearance this morning so we quickly switched up. We did have some action with short fluke along worn some keepers in the mix today. Weather looks nice for the weekend with Sunday the calmer of the two days
July 29 & 30
Both days we had some Big Blues early and then went bottom fishing to bend the rods a bit. Weather looking SUPER Friday thru the weekend!
Stayed locals as the wind came up early and hard. We picked away at fluke and sea bass most of the day.
Beautiful Day! Nice group of customers who really turned the handles and tried their best. We had about 50 smaller Blues but not nearly enough. I went looking today in hopes of finding something better found only a little. Tomorrow is another day. Weather looks nice again.
WE finally captured some Jumbo Blues today! Not nearly enough but saw lots and maybe something is finally changing for the better. Weather looks outstanding for
Some good Fluke action with lots of shorts and keepers
Tuesday was slower than Mondays good fishing. We had action but a 1-2 pick of mixed Blues and mackerel. Wednesday was a very nice day but was a complete Hack for the Blues and Macks. We did catch some, but every time we got something started a dusky shark or two would disrupt the chum slick, forcing us to move. This happened 3 times today. Finally, we moved inshore and picked at some sea bass to end the day. Weather looks nice next few days.
Better action today with some limit catches of Blues. We had more Mackerel in the mix today. Hi-hook had 20+ Blues. Weather looking nice most of week
July 18 & 19
Good Action this weekend with the cocktail sized blues. Saturday saw lots of action with mackerel with blues mixed in. Sunday it was mainly all Blues
Blues bounced back today! Some limits along with Macks to keep people busy. Weather looking very nice this weekend
JB had good action with Seabass with most keeping a keeper or two and releasing many, the flaking wasn't as good but short action and some keepers too. Thursday looking rough for the morning trip but we should be able to get the fish & fireworks trip in. Friday looks like a nice day!
For up to date reports this week please check the Queen Mary Facebook page
Saturday was a bounce back day! Weather was glorious and the fish cooperated better. Many had 5-10 blues with hi-hook over a dozen. Weather looks very nice for Sunday and Monday
Another Solid Day with limits for most and hi-hook was Justin with 33
Another great day with Limits plus for most patrons. Took a little too get them going but it ended up a great day. Danielle and her father Denis combined for over 50 blues. Jack, Bob, Joe and Charlie had a nice barrel full. We have seen Bonito mixed in with the blues the past 3 days. Hope to see ya aboard.
Another SUPER DAY! All the little Blues you could want 1-2 pounds with the pool winner, a 3.5pounder, beating out a Bonito. Sarah & Chris pose with a superb catch. Weather looks good most of this week. Tuesday will be nice until you are already in your car on way home. Come on down.
SUPER ACTION, LIMITS OF BLUES! The weather is great the fishing wonderful. Where are u? Come on down. Monday weather looks phenominal. See ya aboard
Happy Independence Day! The fishing was even better today for the cocktail sized Blues. Many people had double digits and a few Cod were mixed in.
Best day in over 2 weeks for Blues! Bert was hi-hook with 11! The action was just a pick but compared to zero blues like the previous couple of weeks it was a delight. Most were cocktail size fish so the light tackle and smaller jigs are best. Weather looks better Sunday vs Saturday this weekend. See ya aboard
Was a nice calm day, two in a row, first time in over a month! Fishing was painfully slow Thursday morning, but bounced back for the afternoon. Lots of action with sea bass mostly shorts with some keepers mixed in. The folks were happy to be catching. Fish & Fireworks has lots of room Friday afternoon but is SOLD OUT for Saturday afternoon. Please call us if you would like to join us this evening
Did not have enough participation this morning the strong T-storms around 4-6am kept everyone at home. Weather looks mainly dry and calm the next couple of days. Come on down!
Same sea bass a few porgies and some Fluke. 4.5pound Fluke won the pool
Friday night we had a good Magic Hour boating a bunch of Stripers to 44 pounds. Saturday was very rough and we anchored up and picked away at sea bass. Sunday we did not sail in AM, but had ok action with short fluke in the river for the afternoon trip. Monday we picked away with Sea Bass.
June 26 Magic Hour.
Took a while but we found a whale pushing bunker up so we could get some bait. As the sun was setting we had a nice shot of fish up to 44 pounds. We had a few on live a couple on fresh dead bunker and one on a fresh chunk. We have added Wednesday July 1 Magic Hour Striper.
WOW! The weather people could not have blown a forecast any better than today and last Sunday. No patrons around as the weather forecast said rain and wind. I woke up to dry and calm conditions. The weather was so nice it turned into a great day for me to play on the beach with my 5 year old. We are planning on trying Saturday morning. If its a disaster we will not go, if it turns out OK we will head out
After another disappointing morning looking for Blues. I ran inside and we picked at the sea bass and Cole had a nice surprise, this 6.5 pound Fluke.
Blues didn't cooperate this morning so we ended the day with Seabass and Fluke. The weather was gorgeous and the bottom action made for a nice way to end the day. Thursday weather looks very nice again. Thursday starts out Fish & Fireworks schedule every Thursday evening plus a bonus trip on July 3rd. See ya aboard
With the hard Southerly today the small group aboard agreed they would rather not get beat up and ride for 2 hours each way, so we stayed local and had a nice day with Seabass & Ling. Action all day and most had a nice bag of fillets for the table. THer were Blues caught to the North today so we sill looks that direction in tomorrow. Weataher looks very nice for Wednesday & Thursday
With only a handful of passengers I stayed local and we had some action with Fluke and seabass. The morning was a bit slow but as the wind backed off the action got better. The afternoon charter for Brian's group was action packed! Lots of fun for the kids. Most all had a bunch of keeper sea bass and some ling as well as a few fluke. With the high winds predicted Tuesday we will probably not head north into the bay for blues but go bottom fishing again. Wednesday and Thursday looks to be very nice days
Did not sail in AM, weather shaped up for the evening and it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon/evening. We will be hoping for blues to turn around but until that happens we will have the fluke bait ready to go. Hope to see ya aboard
JUNE 20 HAPPY FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND
Wasn't so Happy today as the wind cranked up and the fishing stunk. The week long bad fishing for Blues continued. With the terrible forecast of wind and rain for tonight and tomorrow we WILL NOT SAIL both tomorrows trips. Monday weather looks very nice
We had a gorgeous Day and Magic Hour trips Friday. With the lack of Blues we concentrated with Fluke and Sea bass. This evenings Magic Hour we were able to get plenty of bait and found the fish but getting bites wasn't so easy. We did get a few and loose a few others. John Crowley poses with a monster but who's belly is bigger? I added Friday June 26 to the Magic Hour Schedule
We did not sail in AM. Magic Hour produces some nice Stripers
Day trip was slow but had signs of encouragement. We caught some Blues and I read lots of fish but they were not cooperative. Same was the Magic Hour. The bait was non-existent when 24 hours earlier we had all we wanted, so no live Bunker equals no fish this season. I read fish many times and called a couple charter boat friends into the area and they trolled some nice big Stripers. Hopefully, we will be able to get some bait next trip. Friday's weather looks SUPERB. See ya aboard
June 16 Magic Hour
What a Magic Hour! Like old times on the Queen Mary. Lucky Lou Fama won the pool with a 46+ pounder. Lori had her limit and husband Bill boated a 46" 43 pounder. I'll be targeting Stripers Day and Magic Hour next few days. Come on down while they are here. I have added a special Saturday June 20 Magic Hour trip. Only 8 spots left for the added trip. Next Tuesday & Wed Magic Hours are almost all Sold Out. If they sell out I'll add one for next Friday the 26th
June 16 Day Trip
Signs of maybe a Bass run will actually happen! Chris Cancelmo with a nice one this morning
With all the rain last night we did not sail Monday morning as only a handful of people were around for both boats. I have a few spots open on Tuesday & Wednesday Magic Hour trips, Sunday is Sold Out, next Tues & Wed still have a few open spaces
After the day trip was absolutely terrible, with a keeper Cod winning the pool along with a few sea bass to add to the mix. Magic Hour turned a bad day into a fun exciting evening. Karl's group from Liberty Bar & Grill had a great time getting in on the best Striper action of the 2015 season to date. We got lucky and found some bunker to snag. Karl boated the first one while snagging, a 35 pounder. After making enough bait 2 drift were productive and we added another 10 Stripers while loosing almost as many. Maybe this Striper season isn't dead? We still have openings June 16, 17, 23 & 24 for our Magic Hour trips.
Slow start with shots of fish to 13 pounds later in the day. Bert was high hook with 5
Good ending makes the day! Slow start this morning but strong finish bent all the rods. Ended the day smiles for all. Mike Popchak won the pool with a 13 pounder. Tomorrows weather for the Jersey Shore is GORGEOUS. Sunshine 85 and calm the nicest forecast in 2 weeks!!
Another Solid Day! Big Fish today up to 12 pounds Magic Hour was very tough no bait = no fish.
Did not sail today because of the hard South wind. The wind has switched and is dropping out leaving with us with a gorgeous looking forecast for Wednesday. The Wed Gang will be down See ya aboard
We did not sail today due to the South wind blowing hard all day. We will NOT sail Tuesday morning and the Magic Hour is in jeopardy as well. The wind is forecast to switch direction and drop out late tomorrow evening leaving us with a gorgeous day Wednesday. The Wednesday Gang should be down in Wed this week. See ya aboard
After a terrible day trip the Magic Hour wasn't much better but Jessica had fun
Saved the day with a mix of Boston and Chub mackerel along with a sprinkling of Cod. Better than nothing! Let's hope the Blues cooperate tomorrow. We will be sailing Sunday and Sunday Magic Hour
We are trying tomorrow morning as it has calmed this afternoon and we have a window of OK weather tomorrow morning. Not sure what we will catch but we will try
Still Blowing! No GO Friday. Supposed to calm during day so I'm hoping the weekend is a go.
Wind wind go away and never come back! The wind keeps pumping so it's another day at the dock tomorrow both morning trip and Magic Hour. No one is more unhappy than myself and the crew.
Weather report went to the terrible side for tomorrow, Wednesday! NE winds with gusts to 30. NOT GOOD! We will not sail Wednesday and maybe even Thursday with this forecast
No sail today or Tuesday AM or Magic Hour. Please stay tuned to updates as weather forecasts are constantly changing. Thursday looks good from here and Magic Hour should sail too, only 4 spots open this Thursday and 6 on Sunday Magic Hour
Sunday produced good action late. The day overall was slow with us picking a fish here and there until 12:30. Last hour made most passengers day! We will NOT sail Monday.
Very Good for the 3rd day in a row!
Second Day in a row of good action with mixed sized Blues to Sean's 15+ pound pool winner! Sean out with his father Steve boated a bunch and showed his father and Brother how to catch the biggest one!
Solid Action today! Mixed sized Blues provided a nice day for those who took a chance. Never rained and the wind never blew up until late in the day. Green tailed jigs outperformed everything. Weather looks good for Friday
Did not sail this morning, no boats were out from Point Pleasant or Belmar today for Blues and Stripers. We WILL TRY tomorrow Thursday morning. The Magic Hour is canceled though. Friday looks to be the nicest day of the week and the Wednesday Gang will be aboard. See ya aboard
Did not sail today. We will not be sailing again tomorrow Wednesday due to high winds from the South. I hope to try Thursday
After a Super Sunday, Monday was the complete opposite. We are not sailing Tuesday AM or PM due to predicted high South winds. See ya aboard later in week
Super Action jigging for Jumbo Blues today! We are sailing Monday Memorial Day
A few Stripers and blues not good enough!
Finally the Stripers arrive! After two very tough days of fishing it broke open again this morning. We had a good start chasing schools of 5-14 pound Blues with Quincy boating 4 before 9:30am. Once the blues backed off the Striped Bass erupted and we had our first good shot of Stripers of the 2015 season. Some on jigs and others on live bunker. Sunday & Monday look calmer than Saturday for our daily open boat 7:30am trips. Magic Hour Sunday has only 7 open spots left. Sunday Magic Hour is limited to 25 pass max and is by reservation only
Another tough day Thursday. We had a little action early but slow after that. Some Bunker showed up today and a few Stripers trolled and caught on live bunkers. Hopefully, this is the start!
Wednesday Gang was down today. One word only describes today's action terrible. Was a very long day with Richie"1000" catching the pool winner. Tomorrow's weather looks super. Let's hope the fish agree!
May 18 & 19
No participants today. Wednesday Gang will be down tomorrow so we will definitely have enough to sail
Happy Birthday 21st, to crew member Trevor. Sunday was the best day of the week. Calm seas and good action for Blues in the 5-13 pound class. Many had 4-6 blues each. We will not sail Monday but will be back at it the rest of the week
See ya aboard
Another productive day! Taylor and her Father Greg proudly display some of their big blues caught on a green-tailed diamond jig. Those who didn't listen to the weatherman were delighted with hazy sun and calm seas to go with ok action. Sunday is supposed to be nicer and calm again
Was a bit better today with fish on most drifts and many times 3-4 on at a time. Hi-hook had 7 to 13 pounds. Stacy was all smiles with 5. Showers usually only get the fish even more active. See ya aboard
Opposite of yesterday ok most of morning and slow after 11:30. Most had 1-3 blues of mixed size to 13 pounds high hook had 5. Friday weather looks very nice
Slow start this morning with just a few fish in the boat by 10am. But by 11am most everyone had a fish or two. Our best fishing was 11-12 on the tide change. All big blues up to Charlie Garlands 16.5 pound Slammer Blue. Weather looks nice for Thursday & Friday
Did not sail no participants
Fog again and it hurt us today. We saw lots of fish but they were not very hungry after a 3 day bing they were on. most caught a fish or 2 and high hook had 3.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
Remember we do not sail on Mother's Day
Another spectacular day! Super action all on jigs again today. Crabman was high hook with over 25 Blues in the 7-12 pound range. David Rosenblatt caught close to his limit. The two pose below showing off their catch. We will have enough to sail Monday. See ya aboard
SUPER ACTION TODAY! High Hook was Gary Rossnagel with 28 Blues. Jack Schocklin had 20+ Blues and our first Keeper Striper of the season! Come on down

May 5 & 6
No try Tuesday and no participants Wednesday. Weather looks very nice Thursday, Friday into the weekend. The Wednesday Gang will be down on Friday this week
Started out a calm beautiful morning! We managed one long drift picking a fish or two with a pause. After 10:30am the rest of the day was a struggle. The South wind started to blow the water temps dropped like a rock and the fish got lockjaw. Jack Schocklin did finish the day with a few. Bert was aboard again and had a handful. Richie"1000" poses with a nice one below
Slower start this morning but by days end we had a very good catch of BIG BLUES all on jigs. Tailed Diamonds red & green along with gold Krocs worked best today. Bert was high hook with 14 Blues. We did one Jumbo Striper which was lost just as we were about to put a gaff in it the jig pulled. The weather looks phenomenal for Monday! Samantha & Tom pose with a few of there nice catch! Come on down
Wow What a Start! Lots of Big Blues to 14 pound pool winner. High Hook was Jose from Sicklerville, NJ with 26 Blues. A-27 green, red & yellow all worked well as did the Gold Kroc's. Weather looking SUPER Sunday & Monday. See ya aboard!
Weather is finally starting to co-operate this week. We need a few more days and all projects plus a few extras will be complete. The Queen is looking better than ever! Stripers like temps in the mid to upper 40's so it will take another week or more to get a few more degrees. When the fish show up we will start, hopefully the weekend of April 25th, if not the following weekend May 2. Don't be fooled, many will start fishing even though there are little or no fish to catch. Last year it took until May 6
Happy Easter and Passover! The winter has been long COLD and hard to get all the work done, but we are almost ready for the season with a few weeks to go. The water is VERY COLD, 29 degrees the other day. A warm couple of weeks would set up back to normal. Here are some pics from the winter/spring

Hopefully, for this Thanksgiving weekend! No Sail for Wednesday. Thanksgiving is our 6am to 12 noon special trip. Weather is looking good for Thursday into the weekend. See ya aboard
Another Tough Day! Sunday was terrible for the Pt. Pleasant Fleet. The encouraging info is there was plenty of fish heading South from Long Island. Lots of Blues were found late by the Northern Fleet with in range of us. Lets hope tomorrows storm move the main body of fish into our area for the Thanksgiving week. WE WILL NOT SAIL MONDAY! TUESDAY WE WILL SAIL OUR STRIPER MARATHON 6:30am. Thanksgiving day 6am -12noon, Friday through Sunday regular 7:30am departure
OK action early for mainly short Bass with a keeper mixed in! Sunday looks like the nicest day in a while. See ya aboard
Good Action with Stripers with a few Blues mixed in. The Bass were all short fish in the 23"-27" class. We did have a few that were very close. The Stripers were feeding on rain fish, a very small spearing like fish. Those who had Tsunami 5" Split tail lures or similar soft plastics did well. Jigs did catch some but not nearly as well. Vanessa Lawton had fun catching her first few Stripers today. Jack Schocklin was Hi-hook with 11 Bass and Karl had 7. Party Time Josh finally caught on late in the day and got hot for a while. No Sail Friday, due to more high winds. Weekend weather is looking very nice. See ya aboard Saturday
No sail for Wednesday due to more windy & unseasonable temps. We WILL try Thursday thru the weekend
Tough Day today with about 2 dozen Blues and a few short Bass. Storm followed by cold and windy for Monday & Tuesday. NO SAIL MONDAY & TUESDAY Thursday looks to be best day of week
Saturday was cold but the winds dropped out and the Blues bit. We did have a few bass in the mix a couple shorts and a couple keepers to 36". Sunday looks like a very nice day!
No sail today and we will not try Friday due to high winds.
Weekend looks nice!
Another fine day aboard the Queen! Lots of action with Blues in the 5-10 pound range along with a mix of Stripers. We did keep a few along with a bunch of short Bass. Joe Kukura had a nice keeper Bass to go along with 8 Blues. Thursday and Friday are a NO SAIL, due to high winds associated with a strong cold front coming in tonight into tomorrow. The weekend looks nice! See ya aboard
Turned out to be the best numbers of keeper Bass in over a week. The bite was late and green tail jigs caught most with a few on the live bunker. We picked a bunch of Blues with a few short bass most of the day until I found an area of fish on the way home this afternoon
Best day in a while! Good Action with Blues with Stripers mixed in today, all on jigs! We were over the 3 mile limit so all keeper Bass had to be released. Looks lol a nice area of fish, so let's hope they swim a half mile to the west. Remember we are SOLD OUT for Tuesday only. Please join us Wednesday with warmer weather and calm seas holding thru Wednesday.
Gorgeous Day with some action. After a frustrating morning of reading and watching splashing Bass and only carching 5 short Stripers. Capt JB headed to an area that had some Big Blues and picked away a bit with Blues to 10-12 pounds. The next wave of Bass is here just hope they bite tomorrow. Weather again looks fantastic for Monday. See ya aboard
Winds have calmed a bit and are calming even more for Sunday into early next week. Today was very tough! Sunday weather looking nice
NO Sail due to not enough patrons. Winds are subsiding for the weekend
Another day with mainly blues but we did manage to sprinkle in bass too. Weather looking tough tomorrow, Thursday, so we will not sail. Friday thru the weekend forecast is very nice for early November. See ya aboard
Tuesday, was all Blues! I never heard of a Striper Monday until after 5pm. Today, I read Stripers and some boats trolled them but we could not jig them. The Blues did cooperate for a while. Lou Fama was high hook with 6 Blues to 12 pounds, Adam won the pool with a 14 pounder, Fernando boated 4 while loosing a few. Weather looks very nice again for tomorrow. See ya Aboard
After the biggest storm of the fall over the weekend I expected today to be a tough one. Lots of bait still around but the Bass & Blues did not want to play. We did catch a handful of Blues. Tomorrow is another day! Tuesday is our Marathon Trip so 6am departure. See ya aboard.
Fast Action early slowed to a pick most of the morning. Pete Ziemba, from Jackson, NJ had a super start boating his limit plus a bonus fish before 9:05am. Frank Vivino, Bert, Bob all had their limits, along with many getting a nice Bass for their table. The Bass shut off after 12noon and we picked a bunch of Blues later in the afternoon. We will NOT SAIL Saturday as it will be too rough and Sunday may be as well. Monday and Tuesday are looking nice
SUPER ACTION LATE ALL BIG STRIPERS
The was again a very long one with me pulling my grey hair out all morning looking at fish on the fish finder and only boating a fish here and there. Kroc's are definitely out fishing other lures. Larger Diamond jigs seems to catch some as well as some on the large plastic shads. I left the area I was working all day to look where I found them earlier in the week around 2:30 and arrived on scene to a few gannets diving and no other boats around at 3:15. The fish were on top and finally hungry! I stopped the boat started the famous Capt Dave excited shouts of "Fish stacked up 20-50 feet" and it was GAME ON! We had one SUPER drift and another ok drift. Many went for 1 or none in their coolers to a limit and some with more. Many fish were hooked up and lost in the melee. Wayne Hopkins had a limit, Ed, John Stoltenborg, Bryan Myers, Jim Lutes got a limit plus Bonus. I was hooking up fish in-between gaffing and handing them off to those who had yet to boat one. Weather: Looking great Friday & Monday with this weekend maybe a blowout. Come on down The Bite is ON!
Wednesday was the first calm day in almost 2 weeks. Blues bit well but the Stripers were tough. We read the Bass but they had lockjaw all day. Tomorrow and Friday's weather look very nice with Saturday not looking too pretty. See ya aboard
STRIPER MARATHON A SUCCESS! Many limits a few lucky ones had their Bonus plus even released a fish. These are all large fish averaging over 20 pounds. Pool winner again was around 40 pounds. Pics are on our Facebook page and will be posted here once I get to the office. Large Kroc's and diamond jigs with red tails worked best today. Get while the getting is good! Come on down WED GANG WILL BE HERE TOMORROW
A wonderful surprise on our way in from a good day of Bluefishing, LOTS OF STRIPERS! Tomorrow is our first Striper Marathon of the fall 6:30am departure
Good Action Jigging Big Blues today! We will look for Stripers along the beach tomorrow. We are chartered this Monday Oct 27. Tuesday is our marathon 6:30am departure
No Sail Today and Thursday. Friday into early next week look nice
Not enough participation this morning! Friday is next nice day. See ya Friday
Picked at the big blues all day with the best of the action the second half of the day. Tuesday looks to be another nice calm day. We are scheduled to start "Beat the Fleet Tuesday" our Marathon Striped Bass trips every Tuesday's. The Bass have yet to arrive so we will go off the beach for Blues first half of day and give it a good effort inside 3 mile line looking for the Stripers later in the day. 6:30am departure tomorrow
No sail too windy
Capt JB back at the helm today and had another nice day of jigging Jumbo Size Blues to 17 pounds. Sunday will be windy from the west and we will look along the beach if we can't get offshore. Monday looks to be very calm and by far the nicest day of the week
Very Good Action all on jigs for Jumbo Blues. Saturday weather looks nice
NO SAIL TODAY OR THURSDAY
Another fine day of jigging Blues! Was hot and heavy until 11am then backed off to a pick. Wednesday looks rough, so NO SAIL. Thursday iffy with FRIDAY THE NEXT NICE DAY
Some pics from the past few days:
Good Action again today! All jigs mixed size blues. Average fish 6-8 pounds but every now and then a 14-16 pounder or a 3-4 pounder. See ya aboard
Very Good Action with JUMBO BLUES today! Larger jigs 47 & 67's best with or without tails, color really didn't matter. Monday will be a very nice day, with calm seas. Fishing is very good, weather calm. COME ON DOWN
No sail too rough
Another fine day aboard the Queen!! Lots of Blues a few Alby mixed in. All on jigs, 47& 67 size best gold jigs worked well too. Jack Schocklin with 26 was Hi Hook. Bob Gieson was close behind with around 20.
Super Action with all Jumbo Blues late in the day saved an overall terrible day looking for tuna on the inshore grounds. Water was dirty and I read very little bait while battling very strong current. Needed 8-10 ounces of weight to get a bait down 80'-100'. Ended up jigging lots of Jumbo sized Blues to 16 pounds last hour to bend the rods and put smiles on faces. Friday looks like a calm nice day. See ya aboard
No Sail today and NO SAIL WEDNESDAY due to continued Rough Seas
Fast Paced Jigging for all Jumbo Blues! Very Good today. Weather looking tough next couple days. Thursday and Friday looking best
All Jumbo sized Blues! Weather may be tough Picked Away all day on jigs. Jumbo Blues to 14 pound pool winner by Bert. Our Schedule this week: Mon, Wed, Fri normal 7:30am Blues, Tues & Thurs Inshore Tuna 4:30am depart.
No sail too nasty
Turned out to be a SUPER DAY! Ride out we had a long big swell but no wind. I anchored up the boat and it was GAME ON! All on jigs holding 6-10 on all around the boat. By 11 it had backed off to a normal pace and we were on our way home a little early as we had our fill of all JUMBO BLUES. We are sold out Saturday but Sunday is the nicer day and plenty of room. See ya aboard
Did not sail due to weather. We will not try Thursday but Friday looks OK
Wednesday we will not sail due to Rough Seas. Today's Mudhole Tuna trip was up and down. We did not capture any tuna but all the signs are there! We had some Bonito & False Alby's & read lots of bait at times. The anchovies being present is a great sign and the only other boat in the area less than 1/2 mile away did capture a 75 pound Bluefin. The ingredients are in place. Hopefully, Tuesday will prove more productive.
Another winner! Lots of Jumbo Blues to 14 pounds again today. Bait was best but those who jigged caught fish too. Dr. Jerry and Lenny combined for 20 before Len sat down and Dr. Jerry took a break. Tomorrow, Tuesday we are Inshore Tuna 4:30am leave 1 space is available. Wednesday & Friday are normal 7:30am Bluefish trips. Thursday is 6AM Bonito/Alby trip. See ya aboard
Super Day! Lots of Jumbo Blues and gorgeous weather. Monday will be the nicest day of the week! Jigging was hot early and a mix of jigs and bait later in the day. Bob & Andrew combined for over 20 jumbos. Jim Gillespie had 10 nice Blues and a pool winning 20 pound Mahi! Come on down
