Scheduled to go out tomorrow night on the Voyager but trip is doubtful given the wind and sea forecasts. As a backup i called the Doris Mae yesterday to be put on the waiting list for tonight's trip and today I got the call. SWEET! Bring on the Biscuits baby!!!!!!

Hopefully have a nice report for you all in about 24 hours. Unless, of course, tomorrows trip goes as scheduled, in which case I'll have a REALLY great report in about 48 hours!!!!!! Bring em' on Baby!!!!

Belated report here but have been jammed up at work.

Headed down to Barnegat Light and got on board the Doris Mae at about 9pm. Weather was a balmy 35+ degrees, which was a very welcome departure from the single digit temps of my first two trips. Had plenty of room up on the Port side toward the bow and staked out my spot with rods and cooler. Inside the cabin to grab my bunk and I was good to go.

Really nice crowd on board and a number of Croation gents from Long Island invited me to join their cocktail party, which was loaded with homemade grappa, wine, sausage and codfish spread - really over the top and awesome stuff! A couple of familiar faces from NJ Fishing soon joined the group and broke out some home made peach liquor to go with all the other goodies. Between tasting all the other goodies and sipping on my own cognac i was pretty quickly feeling no pain.

The wind was really howling and we set off through 6-8s at a slow and steady pace that would take 6 hours to reach our destination. At about 12:30 or 1:00 am it was lights out and we all decided to grab some shut eye in anticipation of our battling the biscuits. The Captain maintained a nice slow pace so as not to beat us up unnecessarily. After all the hooch and with all the warm bodies in the cabin, I started to feel overheated so I donned my slicks and headed outside to the upper deck, where I laid down on a bench and was lulled to sleep with the sound of the gentle rain tapping on my hood. it was amazing!

We got to the fishing grounds and got on anchor at about 6:15-6:30. The action started off somewhat slow with mostly small fish coming up for the first 20-30 minutes. After a quick adjustment on the lines it was quickly game on, with the big boys coming up one after the other. I had my limit of nice fish by about 9:30 am and proceeded to help fill the coolers of some guys that were sick or not having as much luck. I also added 10 big ling during the course of the day and was just totally having a blast. It was awesome fishing without gloves for a change and my new 2 speed Fin-nor was the perfect tool for getting up and down the 200+ feet quickly and smoothly.

The wind and the seas continued to build throughout the morning and I guess it was at about 11:30 ish when the captain sounded three horns to head home and out of the deteriorating conditions. I used the ride home to scale and gut my biscuits and filet my ling. I was also booked on another offshore trip with the Voyager for later that evening and will admit to being a bit relieved that the trip ended up being cancelled due to the rough seas and weather.

All in all the adventure on the Doris Mae was absolutely top notch. A very comfortable boat, terrific group of guys and some monster biscuits to full the freezer. Highly recommended and will def be back very soon!
