Hit my favorate warm water spot. Saved 20 bucks on worms and tossed some Storm Wildeyes. I got 2 shorts in 2 hours. The second one completely swallowed a 5 inch lure. Tomorrow I am going to give Graveling Point a try.

I made my first trip of the season last night and covered alot of ground looking for some fresh fish for todays Good Friday Dinner..
Tides were running high and dirty in most spots and still cold.I stuck to the inlets (Hereford,Townsends & Corson's)jigging a Bubblegum Zoom off the usual bridges,Nothing and
no signs of life anywhere. About three quarters thru the tide I was able to get out on some marches and check a few different area's in the back,but again nothing to be found..I then finished up the night checking a warm water discharge ;) and there was continued action with small Bass on Bloods and got a report of some 30"+ fish being caught earlier in the day there.

Still Looking For Some Warmer Water is the key as we really need some Nice Spring Days to get the season stared in ernist...

Ohh,I did finally find some fish for dinner,
stopped at WoodBurns in SP this afternoon and he had some of the Largest Flounder Filets I have ever seen.. I saw a rack of a fish about 10lbs. :eek:

Everyone Have A Great Easter Weekend....

Made the trip down today with my son. We stopped at 6 different locations starting in Ocean City and ending up in Avalon. We did see some signs of life but not on the end of our lines. Maybe in another week or so. Still much better than work.

There were two notable sightings however. There was a good sized seal on a dock in the ICW in sea isle city. I was able to get within 15 feet of it while she watched me get closer - she finally had enough and slipped into the water. It was pretty cool.
Sighting number two was of the rocks by the ferry in Cape May. No idea what it was but it was a pretty good size and swimming against the current. My son chased it with his storm baited rod down the rocks for a minute or two but no luck.

Still looking for that first solid hit - won't be long now.

Not much to report for me guys. Inlet, surf and back bay both at night and day. I put about 16 hours in over the last 3 days. Nada, had one good run in the surf, that's it. Did not see ANY herring. I checked all the places that have them usually by now.

Saw those monster worms again in the back on an outgoing, they usually are about 2 weeks ahead of the herring give or take a few days.

The water is just way too cold, things seem about 2 weeks late, at least. 40-41 in the back, Sucks

Said it before, 44009 has got to be 44 for the start. I think that supports the East-West migration thing actually.


Saw some birds picking off some bait fish in the surf, other than that not a lot of bait fish in the back at all. Hit some lighted areas at night and the quantity of fish / shrimp seems low.

Water is just pretty dead right now, might not even fish tonight.

Take me home to Florida
:D

Fished Friday night and Saturday in the back and around some inlets. Was throwing clam and plastics, saw a couple shrimp at a lighted area, but like Dr. Bass says really dead out there.

I did manage a skate which is my first fish of the year and broke the skunk. Saw some LARGE swirls out of reach in the middle of a large channel. Chasing herring on top?

First fishing trip of the year on Friday morning from Lakes Bay to the Longport causeway. Mostly jigging and some plugging.

NADA.

Super hightide and cloudy 42 degree water.

I was thankful for that skate.

After reading the Fisherman this week I might give a shot at some blackbacks in SJ, but hate to have an article motivate me. I was thinking about it the past couple of years though.
