Hey guys, just want to apologize for canceling. I got squeezed and bumped from my week vacation that I had on the board since last October by my boss. It's a rock and a hard place. Believe me.
I want this. Asked Ryan to give me till Wednesday. This is more than a boat ride. I'm going to do everything I can to pull this off.

Good Luck Ryan and Company on your Southern Adventure.These 2 tiles will not be waiting for you, a 51 + and a 40 pounder caught by my buddy Jason. I couldn't resist and had to post some photos eventually..I had to resize every one to make them fit. I did jig for a couple of drifts, Very Deep and only managed 2 tiny tiles and a rose fish or two while my buddies were battling some brutes! So I went back to bait and got ROCKED immediately. The last fish of the day before we headed back North. Dennis

Tile fishing in southern NJ has been excellent this year.
They are going to catch tons of golden tile on the trip and I hope a new world record tile comes from the trip.

I'm not on the trip but can't agree more with Ryan. I've been using 250lb jinkai and momoi (yes knots) with out any issues. It helps the rig from tangling as an added bonus. Dont get heartbroken by using light line for no benefit.

It also didn't seem to affect the 4 or 5 snowy grouper and 5/6 wreckfish I got into recently either :)


Go heavy, you wont be disappointed!

Weighted green machine daisy chain with other green machines.

Hex heads also work well.


In the past the Viking liked to stick with one color.. green. But i dontknow how they do things nowadays.

Be prepared with a jigging rod should the boat hook up. Lots of fish are caught on the slide.

Getting my gear together for the Mark K charter this sunday , still have to pull all the 100# braid from my reels and replace it with 65# , tie up some rigs and get my tuna stuff in check .

Like Angelo pointed out the heavy rigs tangle less and you wont be busting of any large ones ! Also make sure to use heavy duty three way swivels the spro and tsunami ones do brake so go with the commercial grade ones .


For trolling I like daisy chain green machine ,zukers tuna feather daisy chain in zucchini and heavy jet heads 12 ounce and up .

For bait you cant go wrong with bluefish or fluke but anything fresh and oily will work .

Dave see you on Sunday :jig:

will post a full report when we return

Hi Ryan and Mark,

I saw the Starship while fishing South. I'm Not At All Surprise that they Caught so well! I fought a sword in sight of them for 20 minutes before my Tile Rig gave out. UGH!! I wasn't sure if they were Catching or Searching. Now, I have my answer.
Have a Great trip and the weather Looks Good so far. Dennis

I can't wait! Still have 2 rods to build for myself and a few hooks and jigs to pick up, but I am almost ready!

I will be bringing a bunch of different rods on this trip. If anyone wants to try one out while I am not using them you are more than welcome.

What a nice guy Mike!

I just hope they dont use one of your rods to bang on the railing to alert captains that a tuna is ON!! ON THE TROLL

As long as you're out of the wheelhouse and not steering, the trip should be a blast.

We are back from the Mark K charter ..........Captain Steven found the snowy's biggest on the boat went 52# . We had bad weather the entire trip and on the second day we had 12+ foot seas and winds to 40kt so fishing was tuff . I fished in the stern and had some fun jigging tiles and a couple of wrecks with WillyG. Despite the horrible conditions we still managed to put a decent amount of fish onboard ,you had to work hard and fish heavy .
Guys we are going back to the snowy spot on the trip so please be prepared with heavy rigs made with 200-300 pound test with heavy duty three ways and strong hooks .
We will also be fishing some new big tile spots and doing a little exploring . Get ready guys its on !

A shot from the last 7day
Posted Image

I am in the process of putting together a meal plan for the trip I need to know who will be eating boat meals and for how many days . The shower has been installed on the boat so you will want to bring a towel and stuff to clean with . Make sure everyone has enough sinkers from 24- 5 pounds . You also might want to make up some rosie rigs with three hooks , we will most likely do a few drifts at Stevens rosie spot to load up on some nice live baits and a few for eating .if you use three hooks you will get them 3 at a time ;) .

For jigging you don't want to use a teaser ,just a jig with an assist hook up top ., if you add too much stuff to your jigs they will sink slow and you wont have as much time in the zone as a jig with just a assist up top ....... Also for bait rigs a plan hook will work just as good if not better than one with glow skirts and other junk . You also want to keep your hook off the bottom to avoid trash like hake so make your sinker line three feet long .
