Bolo, don't be hatin.

In others boats defense, you can't really tell how a boat did by observing them for a few hours of the day. Maybe the boat caught well earlier or later. Unless you were on a boat the entire day, paying close attention to what was caught/kept, you don't really know for sure how another boat did.

I was on a Captree Party boat in the 80's cod fishing. We caught fish, not many but a few. When I got home and read the fishing report in the following week's fishing magazine, the report stated that the bite was insane with lots of fish coming over the rails.

A while back we rented a skiff in the western sound. My buddy catches a big fluke that he wanted weighed. Fish was a tad over 5 lbs, nothing huge. The tackle shop owner takes our names and says nice 7 lber, giggles and posts that on the web/reports.

Lying Reports

From personal experience with a few charter/party captians that I will not menton, almost all exagerate the stories that they tell. I went out with one guy a few times and he seemed to multiply the catch and the weight by about 2. However with the new regulations a lot of these guys will be going out of business and they are doing whatever they have to to remain in business. So my advice....take all reports and divide by two, you will probably wind up closer to the real numbers.

quickneck, trust me it is not hatin, its about guys need to stop posting fake lieing reports, you know how many times i go out on party boats when the day is so slow. yet stil when i got home they post how much fish was caught and what not, how many times you go out on a boat and you will hear them say, dang it was so good yesterday, what happen today. thats why it should have a sighn above the fishing repore. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK, just dont belief everything you read on the net simple. many will agree with me many may not, but what i said is the plain truh, sometimes the truth hurt.

Hey Boloranks, next time for porgy's try using the belly of the clam where all the guts are. Trust me they taking more of that particular part of the bait than anything else. It out fished a $10 box of bloods.

Sunday I caught most of porgy's there. Where the boat was anchored I was catching all shorts, but flipping the bait out away from the boat like 10-15ft I was able to catch some decent fish on the clam belly

We all have good fishing spots but its good to know where the action HAS been...you never know where it WILL be but its nice to have an idea of where the fish are. With the price of gas these days its nice to know where the fish have been. I have spots all the way from Staten Island, Brooklyn and Jersey so its nice to get a general idea of where fishing has been better.
Perfect example is last night.......We left from Great Kills in Staten Island for some night fishing on my friends boat. I checked the reports right before I left and found 3 party boats that posted that the fishing was great off of Coney Island with tons of action. We made the 45 min trip (and burned lots of gas) only to get skunked (we did manage to jig up some blues under a patch of working birds before hitting Coney Island area). Well all the party boats where out there in that general area all fishing in a pack on a tight drift, I didnt see anyone having any real action though. Now where they lying in their reports from the night before?????? or did the fish just move somewhere else. One of the boats I belive always posts bogus reports to drum up buisness but the other 2 are usually pretty accurate and truthful. Judging by the fact that they were all in the location where they said they killed them the night before I am pretty sure the fish must have just moved on, Thats why its fishing and not catching!!! Tight Lines!!

Bolo, porgies are out there. We caught a bunch of nice sized keepers a few weeks ago. Try different pieces all over the reef till you find them. Use clams, and stay away from the party boats. They wipe out the pieces they fish on pretty quick. Mark every new piece you find and fish them all. You'll get them!

You bring up an excellent and debatable point, however your spelling and grammer are terrible.

I believe it should be GRAMMAR.

Boloranks is not born and raised in the US. I know him from my marina. He's a real cool and honest guy. up

fish don't read

I know what you're talking about, and I stopped believing in reports (from captains and newspapers) years ago. I was one a partyboat out of NJ last week and they reported 30-35 keepers on the boat, I was on that boat and there were about 6 keepers. I've seen this on many boats. I don't like it but I can understand the boats trying to "lure" people in for business. On the other hand I've read reports or heard reports that things are slow only to go out and have a really good day. If I'm on a party boat and were not catching I'd like to see the captain at least try and find where the fish may be, instead of catching the same fishless drift time after time.

Do we really let the reports dictate if we're going to fish or not????

YOUR RIGHT!!!!!

YOUR RIGHT I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE I HAVE SEEN THE SAME THING . YES THEY HAVE MORE FISHERMAN THEN A BOAT OWNER BUT WHEN YOU SEE IT YOU BELIVE IT. BUT PEOPLE WILL BELIVE WHAT THEY WANT TO , SO KEEP ON FISHING AND WHEN YOU FIND THAT GOOD SPOT KEEP THE FISH LOW TO THE WATER AND KEEP IT TO YOURSELF . GOOD FISHING ToungueShadesToungueShades
