2017, 1st Striper of the Season Contest

It took until just after noon on March 1st.  for the first Striped bass to come thru the door. Donovan Vasquez caught this 9.4#. 30" Mullica River Beauty on a bloodworm. He said he didn't know how many shorts he had to cull thru to get it, but the action is constant. He did pick up a few White Perch between the aggressive short Stripers. With his winnings he picked up a really nice combo. A Penn Clash 4000 on a Tsunami Classic Rod with a full spool of 30# Power Pro. There is still a $100 Gift certificate for the second fish and $50 for the third. Also prizes for kids and the 1st woman to catch a keeper so keep on fishing.

Striped bass, charter,
Mullica Madness Fishing Trips
Spring Striper Fishing has Begun!  There has been a Fantastic Bite of Schoolie Sized Stripers and Jumbo sized White Perch biting in the Mullica and Great Egg Harbor Rivers.  Things have slowed a bit from this Mid-March cold front, but I am planning on starting Mullica Madness River Exploration Trips Monday March 20 which just happens to be the first day of Spring. 

For these early season trips I will be trailering my boat and in most cases I will be launching at Chestnut Neck Marina on the Mullica River.  I may also make some trips on the south side to the Great Egg Harbor River, if I get the right reports.

These trips will be serious endeavors with at least four hours of actual "Lines In" and be available Weekdays thru April.  Special total Pricing will be: 
Single Angler $200
2 or 3 anglers $250
4 Anglers $300
