Long Run Fishing Charters



Our weekly fishing updates!

Sunday November 13th, 2016 Fishing this past week has been epic, leading up to this super moon!  We are happy to report we have put some awesome fish over the rails, this week and the bite continues to go off, the pre-dawn bite yesterday was just off the hook with doubles and triples all morning!  Water temps are cooling down, but are still ranging in the 50-55+ range and we have been able to fish live bunker on all trips. Loading the live well has been a given each trip, with over 100 pieces with a single throw. Fish have been caught using a variety of methods, from trolling bunker spoons, mojo's, stretches, to umbrella rigs, livelining bunker to snag and drop, tossing topwater plugs to swin shads!  We have seen a mix of fish from 20-45 pounds.!

Sunday December 4th, 2016 Favorable weather and calm seas put us on the hunt as birds weren't visible working so we had to search contours, reefs and structure on our Simrad NSS-16 EVO 2. We found sporadic pods of bait deep and a few marks under them. We dropped Hogy soft plastics and small metal Jigs. We managed a few herring and jigged up some small but feisty Stripers. Fish ranged from 21-26 inches but nothing bigger. Our crew stuck with the bite as our light action Penn Clash and Conflict spin reels paired in Regiment and Squadron rods made catching a blast. Spiderwire 30 pound braid matched to 40 pound Yo-Zuri fluorocarbon leader did the trick!

Sunday November 27th, 2016 Thanksgiving week afforded us some warm weather off the central Jersey coast with water temps in the low 50's and plenty of bait and willing Striped Bass to make our clients very happy.  We fished an assortment of Penn spin combos like the Clash/Regiment and the Spinfisher/Squadron all with Spiderwire braid. Willing Stripers took YOZURI surface cruisers and Bull Pop poppers as well as Tsunami Swim Shads. Our biggest fish of the week was close to 30# and a few in the 20# range. We'll be fishing thru January so join us!

Sunday October 30th, 2016 Fishing this past week has been slowly heating up, with another beautiful fall day predicted, as we got to the boat at 5:30 and loaded her up...We broke the inlet at false dawn and with one throw of the cast net we loaded up with a livewell that was full of perfect sized Bunker.  We fished a variety of PENN combos, Fathom 25NLD reels spoiled with 30 pound Pro Spec mono and SpiderWire Camo Blue in 50 pound, all tied to 50 pound Fluorocarbon leader, to a Spro 130 pound barrel swivel to a 9/0 Gamakatsu octopus hook and also 8/0 circle hooks.  Bites took some time to develop, but we landed multiple fish ranging from 28-45 pounds. We safely released all fish, to fight another day...Call or drop us a note with your product questions and comments, as we always enjoy hearing from you!

Sunday December 11th, 2016  We stocked our pen with white legger crabs and rigged the Triton with an assortment of Penn Fathom and Squall combos paired to Carnage II rods, with 50 pound blue camo braid and 40 pound fluorocarbon leader. We fish sized 3/0-5/0 Gamakatsu octopus hooks and Tidal Tails Jigs from 1/2 ounce to 4 ounces. We ventured both inshore and offshore to cover a variety of wrecks and rock piles to see where the life was. We picked shorts and a few keepers but our Simrad in structure scan mode had us dialed into a good bite as we made a move at the flip of the tide. Fish up to 9 pounds and a full limit was had for our clients.

Sunday November 6th, 2016 Fishing this past week has had its mix of crazy weather days, with the bite going off before sunrise, however we got lucky more than once this past week, to get in on an early afternoon plug bite, which always puts a smile on our clients faces!  We are happy to report the local water temps are starting to cool a bit, with temps hanging in the 55-57 degree mark, which has brought a new wave of migrating fish to our waters.  Loading the live well has been a given each trip and we love watching our clients get tight on a livey, has been a blast. We have seen a few bluefish in the mix as well, most of the fish fell in the 18-35 pound ranges!p

Sunday November 20th, 2016 We came off a nice run of Large Stripers off the super moon and Saturday's weather was nearly perfect at 63 degrees.  We managed to find the peanut bunker being sprayed very close to the beach so we switched over to our Penn Clash and Spinfisher reels spooled with 30 pound Blue Camo braid paired to Regiment and Carnage II spin rods. We fished pearl and chartreuse 4-6 inch rubber shads as we picked away at Stripers to 27 inches.  After that bite died down we broke out the Penn wireline rods and trolled Chartreuse Maja spoons and the big blues were all over them. With the gale force winds predicted we did not run Sunday and will continue targeting stripers as long as their rolling on those bait schools!

Sunday October 23rd, 2016  Fishing this past week..well, the currrent weather forecast has kept us sidelined at the dock, however, the offshore water temps are still favorable for Tuna!  So, with a little down time, we broke out the rigging tools and went at it...Todays build, consists of an "old school" cedar plug tree, with a glow-skirts twist, a mini zucchini spreader bar and our "go-to" Tuna Killer daisy chain.  Thanks to Sea Striker, C&H Lures, PENN crimpers, YoZuri Fluorocarbon, and Spro terminal tackle for the inspiration!
