Hey EelBall, tried Mays Landing today, nothing.
Tried the spot you told me about but the tide was way high and the access road back there was totally flooded out, didn't even get to fish it.
Headed to Tuckahoe and fished from land for a while, my buddy got one decent white perch. Charter captain pulled up and took us out on his boat, but nothing again. The new moon tides have all the creeks and rivers running full blown.
I'll try again next week, good luck tomorrow!

Flood tide made it tough to fish the place we wanted to. When we were finally able to get there the wind really kicked up. I packed it in early and haven't heard from BENT ROD about another location he was gona try. I may try again today.
In other words NOTHIN
BTW, I heard some herring are being caught from T-jetty in A.C.

White Perch are actually not a Perch at all. They are members of the Bass family. Yelow perch are more closely related to pickerel which explains all the bones.
Here' a link for more info:
