Default maiden voyage

Made my maiden voyage in the salt today in Barnegat bay and nailed the weakies. The wind was blowing hard but no real problems thanks the the out drive. Had my wife out with me in my sit in. She holed up in the weeds and read a book. She was also playing photographer for me. Caught a bunch of weakies and kept a few for dinner. Here are some shots that my wife took of me.

Awesome Dan!
That is my boat to a T. You will love it. Great job, were they all on the jig and teaser combo? And where did you launch?

Yes they were. I actually had a double with a weakie and big herring. In Barnegat light at the public ramp there is no fee if you are not trailering a boat. I just got in from the surf(beach) and got the skunk. The surf was rough with strong current. I need some sleep anyway I have been out before daylight the last 2 days and plan on doing the same all week. Thanks!

Very nice Dan! I have been up to Meyers Hole once, it is a great location, and I would like to try again. If you don't mind my asking, did you find your weaks on the dike side of Meyers, or on the Barney side?

I wish I knew you were going we could have hooked up. It was back to work today after a great week of fishing. I was still fishing in my head all day long!

Dan, have to say that that's a heck of a "maiden" voyage

Great report. I've yet to run into weaks, although I've only tried a couple of times, up in the raritan watershed (by yak that is)...

Tight lines!

I was just at LBI for the weekend for some surf fishing, no yak. There were so many boats drifting that same stretch of water that I was fishing there was barely 20' between them. They are still catching weakies out there. Good luck.
