    Two trips to New Jersey and Pennsylvania

    Aug 1 - Aug 4, 2014

    Michael and I took a long weekend trip to Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I caught 9 new species among the 22 species caught in the 4 days. I also lost a Striped Bass and a Chain Pickerel. Fishing was good overall, but we had many challenges along the way.

    As usual, you can read about the trip on the blog.





    And here are the 9 new species I caught over the weekend.

    Oyster Toadfish (Opsanus tau) - Species #395

    Bluespotted Sunfish (Enneacanthus gloriosus) - Species #396

    Banded Sunfish (Enneacanthus obesus) - Species #397

    Mud Sunfish (Acantharchus pomotis) - Species #398

    Flathead Catfish (Pylodictis olivaris) - Species #399

    American Eel (Anguilla rostrata) - Species #400!

    Grey Triggerfish (Balistes capriscus) - Species #401

    Dusky Smooth-hound (Mustelus canis) - Species #402

    Cutlip Minnow (Exoglossum maxillingua) - Species #403

    I wasn't able to visit San Diego for some hot tuna and yellowtail action during this El Nino. This is as close as I can get to that action without paying for a charter to chase tuna on the Atlantic coast. Perhaps the El Nino also affected the fishing off New Jersey. Water has been warm and the August bonito fishing had been phenomenal (relatively speaking...but not on my day of fishing). I hope the hot trend continues and the Little Tunny fishing will turn on in September.

    Full story here:

    I caught 7 new species on the trip, bringing my total to #410!

    Brook Silverside (Labidesthes sicculus) - Species #404

    Striped Searobin (Prionotus evolans) - Species #405

    Atlantic Bonito (Sarda sarda) - Species #406

    Banded Rudderfish (Seriola zonata) - Species #407

    Northern Searobin (Prionotus carolinus) - Species #408

    Altantic Chub Mackerel (Scomber colias) - Species #409

    Northern Kingcroaker (Menticirrhus saxatilis) - Species #410

    Life List: 386 species and counting
