We fished Newburgh 5/3 and 5/4. First and possibly last trips of the season.
5/3: I gave my cousin 1st, 3rd, and 4th hits and he lost them all. I caught the 2nd bite while he was asleep and landed a 8lber. Bites were on first half of incoming tide between 9:30 to 2pm. Most bites were at 15-24' of line with 2oz, 30 FOW. Main channel was 54°F and up to 56°F in shallower areas.
5/4: Got out by 7:30am, caught 2 on the end of the outgoing tide, 2lb and 14lb, then a 7lb at the start of incoming. We packed up at 4pm and landed 9 more schoolies the rest of the day. All 3 adults caught at least one.
We started running out of BW around 1pm, and on our last drift we got waved down by a PA Aluminum Bass boat. Their engine died and we towed them 2mi back to the NB launch. They left us with 10 boxes of blood and sand worms. We gave 5 boxes to another boater as they hooked up and stayed another hr to land 3 more schoolies.
Lots of fun and I hope we can make it out one more time before they all leave.
