RBAC Sea Bass Trip on the MiMi VI

The Raritan Bay Angler Club had a charter trip aboard the MiMi VI on Friday May 29th.

Sea Bass 2020

On May 29th the Raritan Bay Anglers Club charter the MiMi VI for a day of sea bass fishing. Fourteen members made this trip. The weather wasn’t the greatest. We dealt with fog, strong winds and some big seas. Captain Ken had us on the fish from the first drop and it wasn’t long until we had a boat limit of sea bass. Then it was off to the ling grounds to add them to the daily catch. Our mate Jake was extremely helpful. He was right there to do whatever was needed to ensure a great trip.

We had 2 pools going on this trip. The top prize went to Fernando Arellano and the second pool went to Mike Keller.

“Raritan Bay Anglers Club” is a non-profit organization for fishing enthusiasts in the Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook Bay areas. Club activities such as our Annual Charity Fluke Tournament support local charities plus organizations that protect our marine environment.”

The Raritan Bay Anglers Club began as small group of Perth Amboy fisherman who happened to own boats that were docked at the original Perth Amboy Marina. The group ended up disbanding while the new marina was being built and later reformed in 1991 to include fisherman from other areas of the state.
