"The two best times to fish is when it's rainin' and when it ain't."
- Patrick F. McManus
fished LBI Saturday and Sunday at the high tides. Had about 8-9 strong runs on bunker heads, but couldn't get any hits on chunks. How are you guys hooking your heads up bc I tried 3 different ways w/ different hooks, and missed every time other than the one time where I caught a 4' doggie. Sunday, was fishing in the morning and got a sharp pain in the side, went to the hospital and returned home without my appendix. Will be out of commission for a little while. Catch em up for me.
We modify are bunker heads for easier casting. After cutting head off, cut from hinge of jaw parellel to spine. 8-0+ circle hook placed thorugh bony nose plate. Head becomes much more aerodynamic, cast very well and doesn't come off easily.

"In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by sportsmen. The excellent people who protest against all hunting and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is, by all odds, the most important factor in keeping the larger and more valuable wild creatures from total extermination"
Heading down this weekend and was wondering if anyone has had any luck for stripers in NWW surf? Caught one short a few weeks back, but haven't seen any reports from anyone.
North end Oc. 10-1. Clam. Caught nothing but some red seaweed. Fish able but a bit of a PIA.
hickory's and small blues all evening! tons of fun on light tackle!
I think the big stripers are gone. Microbass have moved in. Fished last night at dusk as the storm moved in. No sign of bait or blues or stripers.
