Great striper fishing today on the lower Delaware Bay on the Hooked Up II! We ran a fun trip today with mates Vinnie and Ray and their neighbor Bill. We only fished for 4 hours maximum as we were only able to get 12 fresh bunker late last night but ended up with 9 nice stripers of which we kept 5 for the table and released the rest. All of the released ones were over 42 inches and bigger as they all were quality fish but we felt we had more than enough meat with the 5 we kept. This was our first striper trip of the season and last year we caught our first striper over 45 inches on November 9th so things seem to be right on schedule. We are running our first 8 hour charter tomorrow and after November 19th we have plenty of good dates available in November and December for striper trips. Right now it seems the chunk bite is red hot as I saw quite a few stripers well over 30 lbs come back to the dock at our marina so if you want a chance at large trophy stripers, now is the time. Watch the Bass Barn for upcoming open boat trips for singles and small parties who want to target trophy size stripers in the 20-50 lb plus range. Overall just a great few hours of striper fishing today and one fine way to start our fall season, especially after the weather we have had the last few weeks
Caveman Sportfishing Charters is proud to announce we will be part of charter boat operations on Captain Tim Smith’s boat, The Bodacious, for the upcoming 2021 season. Like last season, Captains John & Diana Sowerby, along with Captain Ray Pastella, will be part of the team. The Bodacious is a custom 55-foot Carolina sport fisher that offers an upscale interior and an extraordinary smooth ride (thanks to its world-renowned Carolina hull). The deep vee Carolina hull with the distinctive Carolina flare (or Harkers Island Flare as it is often referred to) throws water away from hull, especially in rough conditions like those seen off the Outer Banks.
We promise you will love fishing on The Bodacious, with all the comforts a Carolina custom hand-crafted boat provides. We will be docked at the same great location in Wildwood, NJ where we were last season with multiple restaurants within walking distance of the marina. Without question The Bodacious is one of the finest deluxe charter boats in South Jersey. Between the two of them, Captains Tim and John have over 70 years of fishing experience in the offshore waters of the mid-Atlantic region and consistently strive to make your fishing trips not just successful, but memorable as well.
