6 Hour Fishing in Cape May, NJ.
SEA STAR III     * 2014 *


Report for "opening weekend" April 18 - April 19 2014.
Off to a slow start! Only two trips, and very few fisherman on each trip, Opening
Weekend only showed us that we are back to sailing. The SEA STAR III is looking and running GREAT! Although the Stripers didn,t cooperate this weekend, it was
a very nice couple of days on the Bay. The water temperature was between 45 - 51 degrees where we fished. We were one of only about 5 boats as far as the eyes could see! Either everyone heard something that we didn't or people are not ready to fish yet in 2014! I for one hope that changes VERY SOON!!! By next weekends report, I will have picked our dates for the PRIME TIME DRUMFISHING Trips and will advertise the dates and availability under our Special Trips page. Don't forget that our Drumfish Trips are STRICTLY LIMITED to 25 people and Reservations are REQUIRED! Also, we will be sailing twice a week this season, Wednesdays and Saturdays due to the success of the last couple of years. Winter held on way too long, don't forget that it is almost May!
Get Ready to Fish! And ............

This will also serve as our last Report until we resume sometime in March 2014. As I reflect back on this season, I want to THANK ALL OF YOU for making it possible. Although 2013 presented countless challenges, I still consider it a success. Providing a lot of "Firsts" for our anglers, and some "Personal Bests", And MOST IMPORTANTLY creating lasting memories of FUN and ENJOYMENT on the water partaking in the sport we all LOVE ! The SEA STAR III will now get a whole winter off and some TLC! I hope to see ALL of you again in Spring when we once again take to the water, Rods in hand, to begin another season of FISHING!

Report for the week of Dec. 2 - 8
Slow fishing is the Report for the SEA STAR III again this week. A few shorts
were taken on several of our trips this past week. Talking with some other captains, there was also a few keepers mixed in. Mostly fish were taken in the Delaware Bay, However, there were also a few caught in the Rips again. As the season winds down and the winter settles in, many of you are making or have just made your last trip of 2013 and I want to Thank ALL OF YOU for being a part of
our Fishing Report from week to week and MOST importantly for Fishing with the SEA STAR III. One last reminder about the SEA STAR III Gift Cards, ORDER SOON if you want them in time for the Holidays! Here are some pics from this week's action. Thanks for checking in.....

Report for the week of  Nov. 25 - December 1
John Smart of Glenside, PA took a Pool aboard the SEA STAR III this week. This Striper weighed in at 20lbs. CONGRATULATIONS!

This was a slow week of Striper fishing! The SEA STAR III sailed about half of the week and only had a few opportunities at Stripers. A few nice Bass like this one were taken by us and a few other Lucky Captains but nothing came easy! We plan to sail DAILY until December 24th 2013. At that time The SEA STAR III will conclude our 2013 campaign. I hope to see you all another time or two before then. Thanks for checking in.

Report for the week of Nov. 18 - 24
KEEPER STRIPERS IN THE "RIPS"
Steve Eakins of Telford, PA., and Jack Hirschmann also of Telford, PA., both took Pools aboard the SEA STAR III this week with MONSTER STRIPERS! These fish weighed in at 35lb and a whopping 44lbs.
GREAT FISH GUYS!                   CONGRATULATIONS!

The trips earlier in the week produced more short fish in the Bay, an attempt to
find bigger fish in the ocean only fed the sharks, and FINALLY the "RIPS" gave the SEA STAR III what we were looking for... Keeper sized fish! Not just keepers either, these fish tipped the scales at over 30 and over 40 lbs!!! WOW!
With about one month left on our 2013 schedule, the time is NOW if you want to fish again this year. The SEA STAR III is sailing DAILY (weather permitting) until
December 24, 2013. I hope to see you all again before we wrap up another season. Don't forget your Gift Cards for the holidays! As always, I will again leave you with some more photos of this week's action. Thanks for checking in.....

Report for the week of Nov. 11 - 17.
More of the same this week gang! The SEA STAR III had Stripers each time
we sailed this week, but they were all short again. The water temperature is
now below 50 in the bay and we hope to see some keepers mixing in as the
temperatures drop. Until then we will continue to take what the Bay gives us.
The SEA STAR III is scheduled to sail DAILY until December 24th, 2013.
Also Holiday Gift Cards are available in ANY Denomination for that special
fisherman on your list. Get yours TODAY!!! Here are some pics from this

Report for the week of Nov. 4 - 10.
The SEA STAR III is catching Stripers! After fishing both days this weekend,
things are looking up. Water temperature is now at about 51 degrees and
a good number of small Stripers started to bite in the Delaware Bay. So far
Keepers have been in short supply, But that could change any day. I am
happy to announce that we have caught fish each day this weekend, and hope
that this will bring a few more anglers to give it a try. With some more time and
days spent fishing, I'm confident that we will find some keepers soon! Here
are some pics from this weekends action.  Thanks for checking in....

Another week with No News. The water temp in the RIPS has fallen a bit
more to 57 degrees. So far the Stripers have given us the slip, However,

Report for the week of Oct. 21 - 27.
Wind, wind, and more wind is the report for this week! The SEA STAR III only
managed to sail on Saturday again and without success. One positive note,
the water temperature has fallen to 58 degrees in the RIPS and there has been
some unconfirmed reports of a few Stripers taken by private and small charter
boats in the past couple of days. As long as the weather cooperates, we hope
to have our first Fall Striper any day now. Also a reminder that SEA STAR III Holiday Gift Cards are available NOW! Perfect for the fisherman on your list. Call (609) 884 - 3421 to Get yours TODAY! Thanks for checking in.

Report for the week of Oct. 14 - 20.
Not much to tell again this week Gang. The SEA STAR III sat at the dock all
but Saturday. This was our first Striper Trip and we didn't find the Stripers.
The water temperature is about 64 degrees in the rips and everything else
looks right so we hope with cooler temps this coming week water temps will
decrease and some fish will start to show up. It certainly won't be long now.
Thanks for checking in.
 
Report for the week of Oct. 7 - 13.
No New Report for this week Gang. The slow moving weather systems produced severe winds and Seas and kept the SEA STAR III at the dock ALL WEEK! We hope to have a new report for next week. Thanks for checking in.
Report for the week of Sept. 30 - October 6.
Bill Canavan of Lafayette, PA., Bob Schwenk of Norristown, PA.,
Bob Miller of Phila, PA., Angela Chiarulli of Rio Grande, NJ., and
Greg Urban of Atco, NJ., all Took Pools aboard the SEA STAR III
 this week. These fish were a 3.5lb Blackfish, a 4lb Triggerfish, a 2lb, 4lb,
and 2.5lb Sea Bass Respectively.   CONGRATULATIONS!

This week the action out on the wrecks and reefs was HOT! The keeper ratio
could have been better, but a nice week. Anglers caught Sea Bass, Blackfish,
Porgies, Triggerfish, Snapper Blues, Croakers, and even a Blowfish! Some
days produced more keepers than others but the catching was steady. The
SEA STAR III will continue to Bottom Fish until October 14th when Sea Bass
season AGAIN Closes. Perhaps, a couple of days fishing for small Blues and
Croakers( Oct. 15 - 18) until we begin our Fall Striper fishing Friday October,
18th. The SEA STAR III will finish out our 2013 Campaign with Stripers until
years end. Once again I will leave you with some more photos of the week's
action.  Thanks for checking in......

Report for the week of Sept. 23 - 29.
Bob McHenry of Phila, PA., John Schoell of Etters, PA.,
Tom Collins of Media, PA., and Tony Pompilli of Wildwood, NJ.,
all took Pools aboard the SEA STAR III this week. Bob and John finished
out our Fluke season with a 4lb Fluke and a 4.75 lb Fluke. Tom and Tony
took their pools with a 2.5lb Sea Bass(opening day), and a 3.5lb Triggerfish.
CONGRATULATIONS!

The SEA STAR III finished out the Fluke Season early this week, and started
our bottom fishing on Friday the 27th with the opening of Sea Bass season.
The action for Sea Bass was steady, However, most of the fish were small.
Opening weekend provided some keeper sized Bass, some nice Triggerfish,
and a few Blues. The winds were up and from the NorthEast, and that could have been some of reason for a poor keeper ratio this weekend. Only time
will tell as we search for more keeper sized Sea Bass. Also I would like to remind all of you that the SEA STAR III plans to sail 9AM - 3PM DAILY throughout the Fall, weather permitting.The water temp was at 64 degrees Saturday for those who are waiting for the Striped Bass. It won't be long now! Once again I will leave you with some more photos from this

NICE FISH!!!                               CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Most of this week the SEA STAR III fished the Delaware Bay due to some
strong southerly winds, and the closing of Sea Bass season state-wide.
Most trips produced some keeper sized Fluke like the ones above and we
had some Croakers, Weakfish, Kingfish, Spot, and small Blues to add to
the Catches. Although Fluke fishing has been tough, we have been catching
a few each trip and a mix of other fish have been filling the gaps. The
SEA STAR III will continue to fish DAILY 6 Hour Trips for Fluke and a mix
of other species as well until the Fluke season closes. We hope to see you
all again soon, and I hope you can be a part of our next fishing report. As

This week's report is being posted a day ahead of schedule because of a
night charter scheduled for tomorrow night. This week the SEA STAR III
spent most of the week in the Ocean fishing around the reef and corals.
Fluke are still the main target but we also have been catching some Sea
Bass as well. When in the Bay, a mixed bag of fish is still the norm. Fluke,
Weakfish, Croakers, Kingfish to name a few. The weather has been the
determining factor when deciding to fish the Ocean or the Bay, and we
are covering new spots each trip. As the summer winds down, I hope
you all get out to give it a try. Maybe your photo will appear right here on
an up coming report! Anyway, I again will leave you with some more photos
