The Manhattan Cup was an annual tournament that pleased catch-and-release striped bass anglers and benefitted great causes such as wounded warriors. Loss of a sponsor stopped the FCA event, and the costs of trying to run it from Manhattan became too great, but Yamaha and others have provided some funding this year allowing the RFA to bring back a friendly contest that provides an opportunity for wounded warriors to fish with some of the top skippers in the area while also raising funds for programs that benefit them. As noted in last night’s blog, Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City will host the event this year, and the response from captains volunteering their boats has been excellent. Yet, Gary Caputi needs more anglers to utilize those boats on Friday. Give him a call at 732 740-9982 to get in on the fun that starts with an early breakfast before a day of fishing that’s capped off with a great dinner and lots of rewards before auctioning off valuable prizes.
The forecast of heavy rains this morning seems to have scared everyone off as I had no reports today.
Capt. Vinny Vetere said Saturday’s striped bass bite on his Katfish from Great Kills shut down at 8:30 a.m.. After that he fished everything from Sandy Hook to the Verrazano Bridge with no reaction. He’s fishing the Hudson River for big bass on Tuesday, and may have a couple of openings.
I have a single angler looking for a partner to share a boat on our last trip of the year- fishing is absolutely wide open on fire. Only deal of the season and a great one- normally 4895, this trip 3295. Contact me please today or tomorrow, first call gets it- TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
