Fall Striper Fishing is Already 
! HOT !
Join Capt. Dave For Fish, Fun and Smiles

Last Spring was FANTASTIC Striper Fishing! That turned into the best "Summer" Striper I have ever heard of in South Jersey. June and July had truly great fishing and catching Stripers was actually possible thru August if you fished the night and early morning tides.

Now as we come into September, if the weatherman is willing, I expect to see the start of the best fall ever. I have done well during the last few Septembers on Mullica River Schoolies and I had hoped that I would be fishing every day by now. Unfortunately, Family commitments have me tied up probably until October. I do believe that I will be 100% ready to hit the Backwater Stripers hard starting the first week of October.

I will be taking reservations immediately and I expect prime dates to be filling up fast.

If you make reservations, I will take names and phone numbers right now. If you don't have it please ask for my cellphone number at Absecon Bay Sportsman Center 609-484-0409. I prefer voice telephone confirmation, but under current circumstances I will do everything by text if you prefer. Actually, it would be an excellent idea to confirm all trips by text when we come to an agreement. I will do my best to get a calendar of open and closed dates online and keep it current. However, that can get difficult to keep up to date so don't assume anything until I check my master calendar and confirm the date.

A $100 deposit will be required. You can leave it thru "Pay Pal" on my web site www.abseconbay.com or call me with a credit card when I get back to work the first week in October.

I have been giving a lot of thought to pricing. I do my best to give a good trip and I think my "Long Half Day" is an adequate trip for even the most avid anglers. My price is for the boat and I will keep my regular price the same as the last couple years:

Long Half Day, at least 4 hours lines in (You can figure 6 hours, dock to dock.) , 1 or 2 anglers $400, 3 anglers $450. a 4th angler usually works, but is not optimal, add $150. I do love kids and young families so I may be willing to work a little after the base price.

I will do my best to add more information and trip details to the web site www.abseconbay.com and Facebook page www.facebook.com/fishabsecon

I hope to see many of you in the boat this fall and if not get out on the water any way you can and remember that Absecon Bay Sportsman Center is the best place to get all your Striper Fishing Bait and Tackle.

Thanks, and see you soon,

Capt. Dave Showell
