Spent a interesting day on the water with KJV....

We attempted a surf lauch from Poverty Beach on Saturday morning. When we first arrived the swells were 1-2 and conditions were fair. By the time that we geared up and hit the beach, the swells increased to 2-3 with accasional 4's mixed in. Being that this would have been my first surf launch, we quickly bagged that plan. We packed everything back up and headed to Ocean Drive to fish Jarvis Sound and the inlet.

The bay was a little rough, but the biggest issue was the wind!!!. We lauched by the fisheries and within what felt like minutes were on the far side of Jarvis Sound. This was the point in my day where things began to head south. I am out there in a Tarpon 120 with a 15mph wind looking at a 2-3 hour HARD paddle back to the lauch point.

Kevin You Rock offered to tow me back with his REVO. Thank God for his offer. Even with the assist of his boat; it was a 45 minute sprint out of the wind. We sought out a little shelter for a break and some lunch before going back out.

We tried to target some Tog around the banks and boats prior to heading towards the inlet. We fished the inlet until the tide turned the swells into small mountains. After speaking with a bunch of other boaters with the same bad luck and getting our A@@'s kicked by the elements all day, we decided to pack it in.

As far as the fishing, those reports lie! Not a bite Blow Up
All in all it was a good day on the water. Had a lot of fun, fished with an awsome and generous fishing partner, and man did I get some exercise.

Thanks again for the tow. The beer is on me the next time were out

There are some fish around, but fighting that kind of wind makes for tough fishing. A huge body of fish were in the surf friday, 11-11-11, the surf guys hammered them. southern monmouth through northern ocean counties. These fish should be by you now! Give em another shot under better conditions. The tog are still biting, although its slowing down. My best fishing has been an hour before high tide to an hour after. good luck.

You guys are nuts! Thanks for the report! Avoid the South jetty like the plague in a south wind. That whole area will beat you to death. Nummy has been producing, but the water is pretty muddied up from blowing the last few days. After Tues when the tides slow from the full moon and the water clears things should improve.

I plan to fish out front next weekend if the weather permits.

My pleasure Tim. Wish the fishing was better, but the company was awesome. We laughed at ourselves non-stop in light of the horrible conditions. If I get out again this year I promise you a surf launch!!!! Let me know when you want to catch up on those beers at Telford!!! Good luck this weekend Chris!!!
