    Went out early to catch the outgoing on a beautiful, calm Sunday morning. Grabbed some eels and some jigs then hit a few sod banks. Two lines in the water for almost 5 hrs and NOTHING. Not a single taker. This was exceptionally frustrating when the fishfinder WAS LIT UP at times. I had to make...

    Hit one of the area bridges right at slack high tide in anticipation of setting up for the moving tide. HOWEVER, I noticed dozens of stripers cruising around the bridge lights in the dead calm water, so I went right to the white bomber topwater lure. I could not keep the lure in the water for a...

    Hit the first hour of outgoing at a South NJ Bridge to try for some stripers. Got lots of blow ups on the white bomber topwater, landing 4 of 6 fish (including the smallest striper I have ever caught on topwater). Lots of fun, but had to switch to a jig once the current picked up too fast to...

    It's that time again when the infamous striped bass start migrating down south. I know you all have heard the name John Skinner. It's not too late to pick up one of his best-selling books to help you land that big cow this winter.

    MEANT TO PUT NOVEMBER 13TH: FINALLY got a trolling motor bracket installed on the Wellcraft. Fished the back out of Somers Point using artificials and live eels with a buddy. Moved from spot to spot looking at every lump, drop off, and ledge we could find. After about 3 hours of searching, found...

    Hello All, I just recently purchased a 14 ft aluminum boat with a 9.9 hp motor to fish for Stirpers in the south jersey back bays. I surf fish and chunk fish with others in the DE bay but I'm not really sure what to use and how to find good areas. Any suggestions would be appreciated. :huh:
