Welcome to Plug N Play Charters website. We're off and running this season with some new tactics for all styles of fishing. Whether you like tossing huge plugs into the rocks for monster Striped Bass or drifting some sea-worms along the bottom for Fluke and Sea Bass we can make it happen. We're also going to be offering some harbor tours and beach picnic excursions this season so Welcome Aboard. All feedback is encouraged.

PNP Updates


Seminars, speaking in front of crowds……I’m not a huge fan to be honest I can’t stand it. Much like Belichick does I avoid the media and lime light and would prefer to just do my thing and be happy in doing so. But I’m not getting any younger and its time to start sharing what I’ve learned with others. So this past weekend I did one and it was received with open arms!

The Fall Fishing Is Heating Up!

9/18/08 by Corey Pietraszek

Well as usual another long time since I updated to fishing report for everyone which is not anything new but many thanks to Dave Gale for busting my kahunas tonight so I’m doing so now. The last few weeks have been up and down with major motor issues and a tropical storm rolling by and it has been wild to say the least. I hope this black cloud of bad luck with boat is finally moved one and things start to get better again. As for the fishing on the other hand its been just getting better by the day it seems. The lack of bait has been a huge concern until the last few days when huge amounts of bay anchovies and schools of peanut bunker are starting to show in better size. Today was the first time all season I can really say we saw fish starting to school up and eating schools of bait. Most of the time I’m in the rocks drifting just teasing fish or looking for fish to be holding in structure. This is great but when this time of year comes around you start to look for fish to be moving more and migrating and catching better numbers versus size or many times both with many differentspecies. The heavy north wind today brought some cooler air and with that we got into our first really good push of bait and migrating fish which is great!

The past few weeks I’ve been flat out busy with bookings everyday which is wonderful so no complaining here. Dave Gale went huge again in some really rough seas last Friday but managed to get tight to one of the bigger bass of the season again. Another huge bass on fly gear for Dave as he is without a doubt the top fly rod angler this season for big bass and he gets the job done when it counts. Great work once again Dave now please lets catch some albies on the next trips. I also had Dave Gonder and his wife Heather from Canada. They made the trip down this week to do bass fishing one day and a Cape Cod Tuna run the next day. We got some last minute intel from Phat Matt and decided to make the run on Tuesday and it was a good call. After a few hours of waiting and hunting it finally happened. A really good school of tuna between 60-120lb blows up near the boat and we finally get tight to one. I felt bad as Dave is a custom rod builder and made an awesome rod for the trip and unfortunately got tight on my Calstar but either way after 30 minutes of fighting he landed an awesome 100lb fish. Nice Work! The following day we decided to fish for bass along the Islands. Flat calm conditions have not been good to me out there but we did manage a few nice bass and had a fair amount of bluefish to play with at the same time.
Today I had John Rukavina onboard for his annual fall trip. He books 4 days and spreads them out and thanks for that as today was NE 20-25 and tomorrows forecast looks even worse but we’ll give it a try anyway. The fishing today was really limited as we had to stay close with all the wind and heavy seas. John’s an excellent angler so you just drive the boat and try to get some shots off when the fish are up. I decided to stay close to home and its a good thing we did because we ran into the first real school of fast moving fish today…FINALLY! People have been calling asking and I really figured its getting late and these fish are just not going to show but they finally did today which was wonderful. John hooked and landed a bunch and we finally called it a day after taking a beating in close to shore which is not a good thing on a north wind running in the lee. Well lets hope tomorrow is as good as today’s conditions and the bait and fish are as active. Let the games begin I think the first real signs of fall are here. I have some awesome dates in October open so get an email over and book some time to fish. This is your last chance for the “08” season and remember its a long winter guys!
