September 15, 2013  Surf fishing trip to Penfield Reef, CT

A surf fishing trip to Penfield Reef is planned for Sunday afternoon, September 15th. Penfield Reef is a partially submerged reef that extends a mile into Long Island Sound from the coast of Fairfield, Connecticut.

The area was a peninsula a few centuries ago, gradually worn down to a series of islands and eventually to a shoal. Cows once grazed on the peninsula, and two of the groups of rocks were later named "Cows" and "Calves" in recognition of their early history. The reef is known as an ideal fishing spot for bluefish, flounder, and striped bass.

It is possible to fish the reef with bait, but this location is popular with guys using plugs and fly rods. The common strategy to fish this location is to move slowly onto the reef as the tide drops and exposes the reef. The tip of the reef is accessible at low tide and very fishable. When the tide switches to incoming, one moves toward the beach, fishing along the way. Low tide will occur at 2:20 pm on Sept. 15th; therefore, we will meet in the parking lot of the Seagrape restaurant (1160 Reef Road, Fairfield, CT 06824) at 11 am. It is not a problem if you arrive later than 11 am.

Walk towards the water from Seagrape restaurant and you will see us. We anticipate returning to the parking lot by 5 or 6 pm. Sunset is at 7 pm.


It takes one and half hours to reach the reef from the Elks Lodge in Ridgefield Park. You will need a marine fishing license from one of the following states to legally fish the reef: CT, NY, RI, MA, or ME. The NY license is free and available online at www.dec.ny.gov. In other words, you can legally fish in the waters surrounding Penfield Reef if you hold a free NY marine license.


Contact Eric Mack at mackerict@gmail.com for additional details or to arrange a carpool.

 

 

October 3, 2013   Alpine Boat Basin!

High tide at the Alpine Boat Basin on Thursday, October 3rd is 9:02pm, sunset 6:37pm and moonset 5:41pm. My unpaid consultant, Kevin Morgan, says this means if we start fishing about 3pm it will be a perfect time to fish for stripers because we will have incoming moving water. So, let us fish, rain or shine. I have obtained a permit to fish and picnic from 3pm to 11pm at the Alpine Boat Basin, with ‘alcohol use authorized’ and drop off and pickup permitted. The restrooms will be open. There will be HRFA funded frankfurters and drinks, however you must supply your own fish enticements. Don’t forget your NJ saltwater registration, inclement weather gear, flashlight, etc. Wear HRFA shirts, jackets, hats, etc. Guests are welcome. In case you are new to the Alpine Boat Basin, it is exit 2 from either direction off the Palisades Interstate Parkway. Go around any barriers in the road. Coming from the south, keep left at the split; from the north, turn right on 9W, turn right at the traffic light, keep right at the split. Head on down to the circle, go 340 degrees around and into the south parking lot. We will be encamped at the north end of the parking lot. Fishing is done at both the north and south ends, but most of us fish the north end. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone.

2012 Fishing Trips

 

October 11, 2012 Piermont Pier Trip

Good day fishermen.   HRFA is having a fishing trip at the Alpine Boat Basin on Thursday October 11 from 2pm until midnight if fishing is that good.  HRFA will supply the hot dogs and non-alcoholic beverages.  Bring your own bait and our permit does provide for alcohol so bring it if you wish.  Also make sure you have your HRFA membership card and NJ salt water permit.  There is no rain date and I notice on the permit it states weather conditions may close the park’s roads and drives.  If that happens I guess we are out of luck.  I’ll be setting up at the north end about 1:45pm.  We also have permission to drop off and pick up in the hours we will be there.  Parking is restricted to the parking lots.  Be prepared for cool, windy or whatever weather and don’t forget flash lights.  I realize this is short notice so please spread the word.

Fishing trip at the Alpine Boat Basin. October 6, 2011

 

The fall striped bass migration will be under way shortly.  Not all of them will finish their journey since we are having an afternoon-evening striped bass fishing trip at the Alpine Boat Basin on October 6th.  HRFA have been issued a permit(NO ALCOHOL) good until midnight.  If you don’t already know, the best way to get there is via the Palisades Interstate Parkway, exit 2 from either direction.  If coming from the North the exit drops you onto Route 9W.   Turn right then turn right at the light.   From either direction, go to the bottom of the hill to a circle.  Go ¾ around the circle down the hill to the basin.  If you arrive after the barrier is up, just go around it.  We will be setting up at the North end, about 2pm, however you can fish anywhere you wish.   We will supply bait(blood worms and maybe sand worms), hot dogs and drinks.  If we are lucky Tony DiModugno will bring some of his fine cuisine.  Anyone is welcome to bring delicacies for all.  If you wish to cook be aware open fires are not permitted.  Have your membership card as there may be interlopers.  Bring guests.  Bring flashlights.  We have use of the pavilion if it rains, or not.  High tide is 6:06pm, sunset 6:29pm.  Parking is plentiful.   For individuals with walking problems wanting to fish the North wall they may be transported to the area.  There are ample bathrooms.

Niagara River Trip  May 4, 2008

This trip located in Lewiston, NY is scheduled for Saturday May 4 through Thursday May 8th. Darren and his crew will be targeting salmon, steel head, lake trout and smallmouth bass.

They will be fishing the Niagara River for 3 days with one day dedicated to Lake Ontario fishing. Darren has arranged to hire two well known HRFA Captains to help land these illusive fish...  Captain Jim Taylor of Hawg Master Charters and Captain Chris Cinelli of Cinelli Charters. 

The cost of this trip is in the range of $1,000.  Darren suggests that you dress for the weather in May and bring your own food and drink along with your own fishing equipment.  For more information and to sign up for this trip, contact Darren at 908-581-6677.

Good Day People, We need to change the boat for Flounder Fishing on Saturday. The Elaine B is stuck in the boat repair yard. (this is the fault of the repair yard place, not the Captain or boat), So we are changing the boat over to the Angler out of Atlantic Highlands.  The hours are the same 7:30 to 2;30 (3/4 day). The fare is $50. Attached is the web site. I also spoke with some HRFA regulars that fish out of the Atlantic Highlands and they also recommend this boat (and will be there).

Any questions, don't hesitate to call me. I am not at work today, but working on getting everything together for the Annual Dinner on Sunday. The link below also has directions to the Angler.

Report on this trip!! by Arnie Ulrich

Captain Ian Keniston and Jared Keniston ran the full day trip today. At 5:00 AM EST, the air temperature was 43°F, the sky was overcast, it was misting, there was no wind and the visibility was fair to good in some haze/fog. By 8:00 AM, it had stopped misting and the roads were dry. The air temperature had risen to 46°F. The sky stayed overcast all day with some periods where I thought the sun would peek out - but it didn't. On the fishing grounds, the wind was light and variable, the ocean was calm and the visibility was about a half mile to mile in fog and haze. The air temperature was cool all day. The sea surface water temperature reached a high of 44.3°F again. The high air temperature at the Portland International Jetport, Portland, Maine was 56°F (with a low of 40°F) today. In Boston, Massachusetts the high was 52°F (with a low of 44°F) today. Concord, New Hampshire's high temperature was 67°F (with a low of 43°F) today.

The fishing was very good. Almost everything legal that was boated was a haddock. Also, like yesterday, for every two haddock caught, one was sub-legal and had to be returned. Landings also included one legal cod and one wolffish. They drift fished all day. A bait rig was, by far, the best choice if you wanted to catch fish.

Ray Johnson (NH) was high hook with sixteen legal haddock. His largest haddock weighed 5.5 pounds. The largest fish of the day was an 8 pound wolffish caught by twelve year old Ryan Keniston (ME). He did not enter the boat pool. Pete D'Alessio (NJ) won the boat pool for the largest fish with the second largest fish, a 7.5 pound cod. Vic Maltsev (NY) and Dan Merrow (NH) tied for the third largest fish of the trip. They each caught a 6.5 pound haddock, just a half pound shy of the minimum acceptance weight for a Maine state trophy.

Other Angler Highlights: Paul Grasso (MA) caught a 5 pound haddock and a 6 pound haddock, his two largest fish. Paul DeFrancesco (MA) landed a 5.5 pound haddock, his largest fish. Selina Chinapen (NY) landed the hard luck award for being the most (only) sea sick angler.

HRFA’s members only spring Piermont, NY pier trips are scheduled for Monday, March 27th and Monday, April 10th.    With the unusual warm weather and heavy rains along with January and February reports of  catching striped bass I hope the bass will still be around.  High tide is around 8:30pm, set up will be around 3pm.   HRFA will provide hot-dogs and non-alcoholic beverage (no alcohol is allowed on the Pier).  Members must supply their own tackle and bait.  Members wishing to provide additional delicacies as Arnie Ulrich, Tony DiModugno, and Rich Berlingeri have done are encouraged to do so.  Only cars with permits are allowed on the Pier so unless you have a permit park in one of the 4 parking lots in town.  The Village Clerk sells a daily permit for $10.  We should receive a limited number of permits for those who have difficulty walking distances.   If you need a permit or just a ride or other information contact myself at bhalstater@mail.hrfanj.org, or 201-767-1288.   Don't forget to bring flashlights as we can fish until 11:00pm and we will if the fishing is good.  If this is your first time fishing the Pier, dress warmly and wear work or hiking boots.  Let us fish!!!!!!!!

When I talked to the Captain' s wife last week they didn't even know how much they were going to set the price at for this years daily fares. They wanted to wait until their first trip to decide because the gas price has been bouncing like a ping pong ball.

HRFA vs SWABC
7th Annual Inter-Club Surf Fishing Contest
PLACE:  Sandy Hook Park, Sea Gulls Nest Restaurant
DAY/DATE:  Sunday, October 1, 2006
TIME:  7:00am to 12:00pm

 

    The HRFA needs your help to win this year's contest. We're hoping that YOU can fish for the HRFA "Surf Marines" and YOU will be this year's winner.

Contact Tim Burden at 201-983-2300 or tb2fishon@aol.com for any other details

    The rules are simple…fish anywhere within the Sandy Hook Park shoreline (be it ocean, bay, or river) and the biggest fish WINS!  NJ Division of Fish and Game regulations apply and trash fish (ie:sand shark, skates, sea robins, eels, etc) are excluded.
Two of the past six contests ended in both clubs being skunked. For that reason, this year's event is being held a little earlier, as to allow fluke to be considered as a legal fish. In past years, fluke fishing had already been closed to those events. The winning club shall hold bragging rights for a year as the best surf-fishing club in Bergen County! The winning angler will have his/her name, their respective club's name, and species/size of fish caught engraved on the club plaque. Past winner's representing the HRFA "Surf Marines" has been Chris Ilg, Carl Hartmann, and Tim Burden.    

    Bait will be provided for HRFA members, as will breakfast consisting of coffee, bagels, and donuts. A hot lunch (most likely to be clam chowder, baked ziti and ?) will be served immediately after the contest ends.

Guttenberg Senior Fishing Trip October 5, 2005

Thursday, October 5, 2005 Len Litof, a Guttenberg senior and member of the Hudson River Fisherman’s Association, led an intrepid band of Guttenberg seniors from the Town Hall to beautiful Ocean Breeze fishing pier, an 830 foot long concrete pier jutting out into the harbor on Staten Island. The pier is equipped for fishing, with basins of water for tending to your catch and cleaning your hands. Rod holders are even located along the rails for comfort.

 For most, it was a first time fishing experience in a long lifetime of experiences. For others, it was a dusting off of pleasant memories of their younger days.

Len Litof, who was responsible for bringing the Hudson Tech Explorer 2000 Program, the Youth Angler Program of the New Jersey Hudson River Fisherman’s Association, as well as the Guttenberg Mayor’s Town Council, and Guttenberg’s school district together for a great fishing experience for 7th and 8thth graders, thought it would be a superb idea to do for the seniors of Guttenberg.  Len then prepared a detailed proposal to the Mayor, David Della Donna and his Town Council.  After many discussions and consideration, the Mayor,  gave Litof’s  proposal it’s blessing and agreed to fund and support the fishing trip as a way to allowing our seniors a day in the fresh air and a chance to catch the ocean breezes as well as fish.

Litof then wrote up flyers and had them posted in prominent areas in town where the seniors, who wishing to go, could call and sign up to reserve a place on the luxury bus provided by the Mayor.

Len contacted the Hudson River Fisherman’s Association and told them of the impending outing.  The Association approved the outing, provided, the rods, reels and above all, a cadre of experienced fisherman, to be at the pier assisting the Guttenberg seniors in the art of fishing.  Len, and these men, Glen Blank, Al White and Tony Di Modugno, are usually working with our Youth Anglers group from Jersey’s inner city schools and were eager to be with a senior group, especially since they are seniors themselves.

 The Hudson River Fisherman’s Association is an environmental group, over 600 strong, who work tirelessly to clean the Hudson River of pollutants as well as keep recreational sport fishing alive. You might have seen a recent result as General Electric, after 30 years, has agreed to begin cleaning up 45 miles of the river.

 Upon reaching the sun drenched pier, the seniors were greeted by Len Litof and his volunteers, fantastic weather and beautiful views of the Verranzano Bridge, Brooklyn and the Lower New York Bay.

 All was in readiness for the fun to come.  Rods, reels, hooks baited with sand worms, and many, many fish below.   After a brief lesson

 on how the rods worked, down into the water went the lines.  Not 5 minutes elapsed when shouts of joy and laughter were heard.   Of course, guys, the first fish was landed by a lady.  This lady exclaimed “I never fished in my life”.

 Len –Glen - Tony and Al were kept hopping, removing fish from the hooks, taking pictures, releasing fish to the water and baiting hooks.

 This went on until lunchtime, when turkey, roast beef, ham and salami sandwiches were served, along with chips and sodas. All provided free by the Mayor and Town Council of Guttenberg.   After lunch some continued fishing while others took a stroll on the boardwalk along the beach.

 At about 3:00 pm, the seniors returned to their luxury bus. Then, they were transported to Guttenberg Town Hall.  Many seniors told Len to thank the Mayor for a wonderful day and asked when the next fishing trip will be held.  Len replied that he is working on more outings like this and hopes the Town will be as gracious as they were today.

 For the record, the fish they caught were porgies and the volunteers estimated that at least 75 fish were caught and released live.  The largest porgy was 10 ½”.  The smallest, was 3 inches.

 In summation, a great time was had by all.
