If You Get A Chance Check Out this article by
Bob Stearn...Great PIC of a Bass Too.....

Here's A Few Quotes

"Know the preferred temperature range of the species you seek and you'll catch more of them"

"You can't catch fish if the fish aren't there,
which is why every angler should pay close
attention to water temperature.Striped Bass
is one species that can tolerate a wide range
of temperatures,but you're not likely to find
them when the water drops below 50 degrees unless
bait is abundant."

"Fish instinctivey flee cooling water and look
for places to stay warm and comfortable.And
sometimes the speed at which the water cools
affects them even more than the actual drop
in temperature"

"As most offshore fishermen know,areas where cooler water abuts warmer water often hold concentrations of baitfish and the predators that feed on them.The best way to find these hot
spots is to subscribe to a service that provides daily satellite charts showing the water
temperature "fronts"and their movement"

Here is the Temperature Preference Range for
a few of our local N.J.Species

Bluefish Lower Avoidance(50)
Optimum (66-72)
Upper Avoidance (84)
Fluke Lower Avoidance (56)
Optimum (62-66)
Upper Avoidance (72)
WeakfishLower Avoidance (45)
Optimum (56-68)
Upper Avoidance (78)
Striped Bass Lower Avoidance (42)
Optimim (50-65)
Upper Avoidance (75)
Tautog Lower Avoidance (45)
Optimum (50-60)
Upper Avoidance (76)

Thanks Steve! Not a bad artice but, a bit off the mark there...

Besides, your not going to find bass in ANY water temperature if the bait isnt present.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Fronts and their movement, as advertised.

That was a good read, thanks Steve

Hope that temp stays above 50 for the next week at least, although I have caught them in 42 degree water in early January

Steve, do you have Microsoft Access ??
