|WE ARE NOW STRIPED BASS FISHING 7:00 AM DAILY UNTIL THE OPENING OF THE FLUKE SEASON ON SATURDAY, MAY 21!!!|
Yesterday's easterly blow and a VERY LARGE left over swell put a big hit on the tog bite today. Tried a number of areas from 30-60 feet to find a couple of spots having no bites at all and a couple of other pieces giving up a few fish. Unfortunately, shorts outnumbered the keepers the guys caught today. Art Garrett, Red Bank, NJ, had the big fish and took the last pool of the spring blackfish season.
|04/27/16||Not much wind on the ocean today but there was a pretty decent left over swell from the wind last night. A couple of the spots we fished had decent life on them with a couple of others having no bites at all. A slow pick overall but the guys managed some nice sized fish for their efforts. A few fish were caught on the green crabs but with the clams producing most of the fish. Steve Herczegh, Spotswood, NJ, took the pool.

|04/26/16||The forecast for rain kept most people home and all of the area boats at the dock which is a shame since it turned out to be a gorgeous day along the shore. We already know of a bunch of guys coming down tomorrow (Wednesday) so come down and join them. Only a few days left before the spring blackfish season closes!! See you in the morning.|
|04/24/16||It was a nice day overall on the blackfish grounds. Tried a little different area looking for the mother lode. We had the same strong current most of the day like yesterday. More short action than keepers with the blackfish with most of the action once again coming on the clams. Also ended up with our first several seabass of the year, which were released, a couple of ling and a codfish which took the pool for Bob Willamson, Whippany,NJ.|
|04/23/16||Hit the blackfish grounds today with some of our regulars. Caught some fish in a couple of areas despite a strong current all day. Most of our action came on clams with just a handful of fish on crabs. John Vanderstad, Pompton Lakes, NJ, took the pool.|
BLACKFISH at 7:00 AM DAILY STARTING THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 23 THROUGH SATURDAY, APRIL 30!!!!!
It felt good to kick off our 2016 season and we could not have picked a finer weather weekend to do it! We fished both days and had a few fish to take home yesterday and also today. It has been a very tough bite for all of the boats the past several days but our guys were up to the task and worked hard for the fish that they caught. Mike Naipawer, Bloomingdale, NJ, took our first pool of the season yesterday which was also our first fish of the season. Juan Gomez, West Orange, NJ, took the pool today. Although a bit early many of our friends feel that the striped bass are already spawning due to the warm winter. The fishing will return to normal when the fish are done doing their business.
The 2016 LEGAL BAG LIMIT for striped bass in NJ is one fish between 28" and 43" with a second fish 43" or larger. There are no bonus tags for a third fish in the spring.
|04/10/16||We hope that everyone had a good winter. Spring has now sprung and we will be kicking off the start of our 2016 fishing season SHORTLY!! Looking forward to seeing you all soon!!|
