    Tried CM beaches Sat night, one short 18" on a plug. New gear worked great. The new breathable, integrated boot-foot waders from LL bean are exceptional. Walked two miles along beaches, while casting, without even knowing I had waders on. The new plugs swam beautifully.

    With the recent storm, take a garbage bag with you this weekend and walk a couple hundred yards by your fishing hole and pick up some trash. Seemed like there was a lot of plastic bags, ballons, cans, bottles washed up that will harm our waterways. Thanks for the help.

    Parked by the beach in southern Monmouth yesterday to eat lunch and noticed terns and herring gulls going crazy in wash. Even looking with binoculars for 15mins. couldn't see what kind of bait or predator(s) were involved. Action lasted over an hour then died. Nobody with a rod showed up.

    I was wondering how much of a difference it makes when I use the frozen clams in a brine solution they sell at most bait shops. Are fresh clams better for striper fishing.

    old stinky clams are the best !!!
    salted rule !!!
    there are some guy's that are hooked on fresh only !!
    oh well there lose.
    if some one gets there fisrt bass on fresh then there the best
    if you get your first on salted there the best.
    just don't tell the fish !!!
    as of now they don't care.

    Had the day off yesterday so took a ride to I.B.S.P. Got on the beach at 6:30, Went right to the inlet,2 1/2hrs before high tide,olny had about 20ft. of beach to drive on and jetty was almost all the way under water! Water was very rough w/alot of weeds. Fished both high low n fishfinder w/clams,8oz. nadda. Moved to #22 at hightide(did'nt try to go any further,beach looked too narrow,although a ranger did come by me from north end and said beach was very narrow) same results. There were alot of birds out over the water but it looked like they were just picking up the bottom churnings off the top of the water. It did look like some nice holes and cuts formed for when the water does drop. Should be alot better this weekend!

    Thats not spot burning.
    You pretty much have to have a beach pass to get to those spots and if you have a beach pass, you know those spots.
    Make sense?

    Got out today in the back of OC for about an hour or so - beginning of out going. One short in the 22" range on a 3/8 bucktail tipped with a gulp minnow. Fish was nice and healthy. Then I headed up to Brigantine, picked up a permit and drove the beach. Fished about an hour and a half - no fish, but met a couple of barners. Nice day except for the wind in my face at the north end. Hope to get down again one night this week.

    Default IBSP Report 4/21

    Fished IBSP today w/ Slimedog, Sheet and Bunkerfinger. MrMeinPA showed up in the afternoon. Surf was rough, 8 oz. to hold till the tide changed at 11:30. Wind West @5 mph changed to East @5 mph about the same time. Beautiful, warm, sunny day. I had one bump on clams and we saw one short caught just north of us. Beach was very soft and you could see where the nightime high tide was up to the dunes for most of the beach. Calmed down for the daytime high tide, to just about normal. LOTS of real good looking water, plenty of holes in the outer bar and lots of spots with rip tides crashing together. It all looked really fishy, just no fish today. Paul at Grumpy's B&T said he had 3 fish weighed in as of 3 pm.

    Bunkerfinger trying to find some fish.



    Quite a few people on the beach today, some fisherman and some googans!
