Just wanted to give a report for past couple of weeks of fishing charters. Been running out of Hudson beach and the water quality offshore has been hit or miss. The Gag bite when you find the clean water has been great! We've been mainly working the 45'-55' range and that seems to be where the cleaner water has been. Worked the 35' stuff a little north of Hudson and the water was dirty brownish and didn't see much life on the sonar. We've been limiting out pretty much every trip. Some trips we've been having troubles finding clean water. Those trips we've had to work a little harder. I've been trying to stay away from main part of ledges and work the small rockpiles off the ledge. If i am working the ledge i will fish and bump up 20' every 15 mins or so. We'll pick one off here and one off there. Seems the Boston mackerel and cut bonita have been the best baits for them. With big live pigfish or pinfish being second and frozen dines coming in third. On another hand the mangos on these shallow ledges have been really good lately. More than i have ever seen in previous years. Good sized ones too for being under 60'. A lot have been caught on 60lb grouper gear with 7/0 hooks which is wild, but when we throw out a few 1/4oz snappaslappa jigs or 1/8oz yt jigs they've been pretty easy to get. As the weather cools the bite should pick up for the big Gags so I am looking forward to that. Enjoy the pics and until next time, tight lines!
