Monday August 31st-   Wow, last day of August. Where did it go? Rewind please.  Yesterday brought in reports of more kingfish. We are carrying blood worms again.  Ryan & another angler mentioned larger bluefish in the bay & jumping out of the water(?); big croakers have made a reappearance 1-5 miles out as reported by a boater & have read that the party boats are getting some which helps offset the short fluke that are still outnumbering the amount of keepers. Blow fish continuing to be a consistent bite for bay fishing. Snapper bluefish are sill being caught although some days they are not biting at all.   Crabbing continues to be better than last year.  With the wind-down of summer, the buzz is all about fall fishing & the coveted fish-striped bass. Bob's last "Sundays with Bob" this summer will be held Sunday September 6th & the hour will be focused entirely on stripers.

We really like when we get reports back & pictures make it even nicer. Towards the end of June we had the pleasure of meeting a friendship duo Wayne & Jim. Wayne was kind enough to say these words~Good morning Sue, John & Holden, 
We came to Surf City for a family reunion, but I also came with the intensions of catching some fish.  That's why I call it 'catching' and not fishing.  And all three of you are the reasons we enjoyed ourselves so much on the shores of Surf City catching our different fish after the sun AND moon cooled off in the ocean!  The blues were fun to land and certainly quite different than landing them from a boat 25 miles off shore.  Perhaps with a bit more practice, we could go for their striper cousins!   Jim spent the last 20+ years in Alaska claiming he worked for a living, but we all know he spent years tossing his fishing line into the beautiful waterways of the state.  My wife & I are from Pittsburgh, Pa, and we have been blessed to have put our fishing lines in waters(salt & fresh) all over the USA & Canada at different times. Thanks for your gift of enthusiasm & passion for the sport and for the use of your equipment and cleaning station on the morning after.  We hope to see you next year about the same time when we stop in to see your smiles, check on what's running and pick up the necessities to go 'catching' once again. God bless.  Wayne

If Wayne & Jim are reading this-please know the pleasure was all ours. We love what we do & we are who we are because of you & everyone else who steps through our doors. We are truly blessed. It was so much fun getting to know the two of you. Look forward to seeing you again. Until we meet again, keep smiling & enjoying life, after all each day is another day in paradise!

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 6TH IS ALL ABOUT STRIPERS FOR BOB'S LAST SUNDAY FOR THE 2015 SEASON
