Paul Cameron Representing Reel Happy Fishing Charters at the Proving Grounds tournament today.. 42 boats fished with 18 including us making the scales. They had no junior angler so that trophy was awarded to runner up lady angler. Unfortunately we were nudged out of that place by under two pounds. Thrid is still a respectable finish for Jan who fished with us. Had we boated our beast Debi Decker fought to next to the boat top honors in that division would have been ours. Oh, well that's what next year is for!

Congratulations to all that did win and thank you Jack Donlon and Gary Carr for another great event!

we went on the hunt for Striped Bass and after trying several different spots we landed this nice big bass!!

Weather eased up and gave s a great start to the fall run of big striped bass. These arly season beasts were running 25-50 pounds. Good striped bass fishing so far.

Slow start but things managed to pick up at the end of the incoming tide...great time ,great guys and meat in the cooler.

A good day of fishing begins long before the engine starts and lines cast off.We cut a bushel of clams a couple days ago in anticipation of today's trip.With the threat of winds bluiding in the afternoon we left early.Almost immediately we were on them.It was non stop action for the dignitaries we had aboard today. The sea bass were thick with several hump heads" in the collection. As the day progressed we gathered some really nice ling to add some diversity to the catch.

Today was nice as we got in a rhythm keeping hooked fish coming to the boat almost non stop.Hooks were baited and sent down as other fish were being reeled up. just before the wind picked up our anglers stated we had 32 sea bass and 24 ling both to better than three pounds on this trip.Even a couple of small whiting for grins.

lucky and avoided the rain that was forecast. Spot one and two was where they were last week but no fish. Spot three had great marks and other guys were catching but still no score. Next place we clobbered jumbo blues and nice bass. We tried troll, chunks, live there. The tide switched and fishing died. 

We tried three more spots without a mark or bite. Threw a Hail Mary and tried an old spot. We added three big Bass with one pushing 30 pounds.
