Want a Fantastic Striper Fishing Trip? Check out Capt. Dave's

Absecon Bay Fishing Safaris

Striped bass, charter,
Fall Striper Season has begun and we are doing great.  I am running back bay charters every day that the weather permits. Now that the bite has begun I am taking bookings every day, but there are still plenty of open days available.  If you have ever considered fishing Striped Bass on light tackle give me a call now.  609-484-0409.
      I applied for the Charter boat Bonus Permits so we should be able to keep slot fish from 24" to 28" this year besides the 28" or over Keeper.  I've already used up several tags on early season slot fish and was informed that the quota of available tags have been issued so I will be limiting use of the tags, however for those Striper eaters every party will be able to use one or two to ensure a great meal.  For those C&R specialists we'll just have loads of FUN!

I am participating in the
Striped Bass, Slot Fish Bonus Program

Striper Season is on the way and The Marine Fisheries dropped of my supply of Bonus Tags for my clients on Absecon Bay Fishing Safaris www.facebook.com/fishabsecon . The Bonus program allows anyone who applies to keep a fish from 24" to 28". As a Charter Captain in the program any angler on one of my charters who catches a fish in the slot can use a tag and take a great eating fish home for dinner in addition to a fish over 28". Of course I agree with complete Catch & Release fishing if that's how you roll, but I have no problem with anyone taking what is legal and BTW to participate in this program requires extensive reporting of information that will be a help with future Striped Bass Management.

Bonus Tag Advisory

As a registered Charter Boat I have recieved a number of tags which allow keeping a slot fish of 24" to 28", for use of my charter customers.  I have been informed that I am limited to my original supply so I will be limiting the use by my customers.  The following explains how I will use them:

  • A maximum of two tags will be issued per charter per day.
  • If a legal, (over 28") Striper is landed first, or before the the second tag is affixed to a slot fish only 1 tag will be used.
  • If all anglers on board catch a legal 28" Striper we will save all the tags for another day.

I hope all customers understand and appreciate this situation and my way of dealing with a situation.

Spot Advisory
The name of the game for the last few years has been "SPOT" and this year the supply locally and out of the Chesapeake Bay has been very "Spotty" at best.  I did manage to buy a few tanks full, but they are already thinning out.  Current price is $5 each with no discounts for quantity.  Prices are subject to change at any time (and I don't think they will be going down)  I will save a limited quantity for my charters , but when the current supply is exhausted they will be gone for the season. 

I do have a good number of Eels and expect one more load.  Fresh Bunker and Clams should be in a normal supply and I always have plenty of GULP!
It's All About The BAIT
When Striper Season rolls around you need the freshest liveliest bait available and you can find it here at Absecon Say sportsman Center.  My supply of LIVE SPOT and EELS is always second to none and I do my best to keep my refrigerators packed with Surf Clams and Fresh Bunker.  When you are ready to fish stop by and check our supply, you'll be back for more.
