Lady Godiver report 7/4/2011

As we headed out of Barnegat Inlet today we decided to hit one of the bigger wrecks but not go too far from the inlet. The first choice was the Chappara and if that was taken we would hit the San Saba. Well of course the Chappara was occupied as was the San Saba. The next closest bigger wreck that we picked was the Great Issiac and it appeared no one was on it as we motored in that direction. Since we were practically going right over another small wreck we decided to make a quick dive on the way to the Issiac. The quick dive turned into 2 long dives due to the outstanding conditions and abundance of sea food available. Vis 35 ft and temp about 50F. There was a slight bottom current. We quickly filled the coolers and that was even with releasing one lobster that was too large. It was however weighed and turned out to be just over 8lbs and was then released. The biggest sea bass of the day was 4.5 lbs and several others just slightly smaller. The biggest fluke today was 6lbs. |
On the way to the last stop we had the grill going again and it was gourmet hot dogs with all the fix-ens, potato salad and noodle salad. I could get used to that.
Last stop of the day was a small wreck in 45 ft where we found an abundance of big heathly Tog but we only took fluke at this last spot.
Finally back to the dock at around 4 pm. Hopefully next week it will be as good.
