Fluke-a-Thon 2: The Sequel

Eight teams took off from their respective ports along the Jersey shore Saturday in hopes of winning Fluke-a-Thon 2 and the $400 first prize. Also at stake were cash awards for second and third, as well as a $400 largest fish Calcutta.

This was a follow up event to the first Fluke-a-Thon which was held back in mid-July. Although that one was billed as the 1st annual Fluke-a-Thon, the members and friends of New Jersey Saltwater Fisherman (NJSWF.com) just couldn't wait a whole year to have another one. And so, Fluke-a-Thon 2 was born. As Sam3, Global Moderator of NJSWF.com commented, the Fluke-a-Thon was "back by popular demand!"

Great start for Team Brickken!

Early weather reports suggested that the tournament might have to be postponed or canceled. But as tournament day grew nearer, the weather forecast improved greatly. And early Saturday morning Administrator and founder of NJSWF.com, Rod Houck (Hotrod), gave the all clear. Many of the boats in the northern part of the state took off in some nasty weather, including last month's Fluke-a-Thon champions, Team TNT who were fishing out of Atlantic Highlands. Team TNT captain, The Broken One, said, "Well, left the ramp around 6 in a blinding / driving rain.... turned on the XM Nexrad and actually looked rain free and fine for our destination.... set coarse(sp)and got there in beautiful conditions. Weatherman actually blew it again as the predicted S wind was SW, then straight north. Got rid of the slicks as it heated up quick and turned real nice."

That was fortunate for them since much of the pre-tourney talk was centered on who could actually beat Team TNT. They certainly had a bulls eye on their backs throughout the day.

Kayak Fishing NJ The Kayak is not new, going back hundreds of years if not longer the Inuit Tribe has been hunting and fishing the northern waters from the Arctic Sea to the North Atlantic very successfully putting food on the table for their families as well as a reliable mode of transportation. This craft has served them well. Now we, the average saltwater fisherman has found that by using this rugged little craft we can improve our catch rate of many species of fish quite significantly. It allows us to get to waters that are too shallow for a regular boat and to far to wade out and possibly get caught out in the flats as the tide rises.

Here at NJ Saltwater Fisherman.com we are passionate about all forms of fishing, surf, private boating, charter boats, party boats and now kayaking. Although it is a very old form of fishing it has only taken hold in saltwater circles as a viable platform in which to fish off of in the past 5 or so years.

With today’s high price of fuel the kayak sure looks good too many sportsmen as it allows them the mobility as well as the excitement of Yaking as it is passionately called. No motor is needed to glide gracefully along to your favorite fishing spot, load your craft with fish and head back with little effort. Well almost, if you are like me I don’t get out too exercise to much these days and this sport is one that I surly can handle with ease.

There are many different types of kayaks on the market today and you should take the time to do a little research as to which one will best fit your style of fishing. We are looking forward to helping out the first time kayaker and the seasoned yaker alike. This new forum will be a good starting place to ask questions and post reports on ways people have outfitted their Yak to make it more of a fishing machine than a pleasure craft.

As mentioned earlier there are many different types of kayaks and with that goes the price range. I would say that the majority of today’s kayaks range in price from $400.00 to over $2000.00. Like today’s cars it depends on what equipment you outfit it with...........
