10/23 Sea Bass Report

I ran the Saltitude again in search of sea bass on some different wrecks and structure heading more to the South out of Cape May. The water temperature was still 68 degrees. We hit a small wreck in 95′ of water and had a pick of keepers here for the first hour but overall it was slow. There were some very small porgies and flounder in the mix as well but we moved on to the Triple Wrecks Area and had plenty of action but all very small sea bass. We moved up into the DE-NJ Reefsite and made a few drifts here where we had action every drift and finally found the bigger fish. With the sea conditions a 3-5 foot chop and wind coming up at a stiff 15 knots we back trolled to stay on the fish and loaded the box with plenty of keeper sea bass. The keeper to throwback ratio was about 3:1 so much better then yesterday and we headed home at noon. Fun fishing.
