Feel Free To Post Your Fishing Reports from
our Surrounding New Jersey Inlets & BackBays.
Striped Bass,Weakfish,Bluefish,Fluke,Tog & Seabass.
As much info that you like - tides,conditions,weather,baits/plugs,water temps techniques,etc.etc......
But Please No Exact Spots,,,Thanks NS




-------------------------------------------------

First Week Of May And Its Shaping Up To Be A Good One..Summer Flounder/Fluke Season opens up this Saturday 5/6,and from what I been hearing there are already some nice ones to be had..

I was able to pick up my first Weakfish of the season the other night marking the second straight year that I did not find them until the last weekend/last day in April..


Met up with some of the guys,Keith,Bruce & Ronny
with hopes that some TideRunners might make a showing during the night.Water Temps in the upper 50's with a Northernly Wind at times made for a cold one but a strong moving in-coming tide kept our interest.Especially after I pulled in a 32"/11lber on the usual Pink Zoom..Shortly after Ron lands a 12lber to take high honors for the night plus another a third of that size and that was really it for the night.Because the action happened so late in the tide and once it died out nothing else happened.We believe they are in there and I consider ourselves lucky we got a couple to open their mouths,but we really need that water temp to bump up a bet more.My quess is that the action with them will become more consistent as the week progreses. We also had a few Bass,and once the tide started heading out some fish started to pop but all really out of range,plenty of bait seem present.

Everyone Have A Great Week,.,,

Friday 5/28 fought the wind against the tide on Great Bay chummed with clams 1 small blue and a short bass. A couple of missed bites. Crabs made it difficult to keep bait on the hook. Suday the 5/30 tried again, the wind was brutal. Tried in the Mullica with herring and clams but didn't get touched all day.

Nice fish Steve!! I'll be allocating my gas money strictly to the boat this year, so you won't be seeing me to the north. Looking the other day I saw the calendar and moon tides were getting right.

I hope you get that 15 pounder bud. You put the time in.

Fished the top of the tide @ CISP tonight and got skunked. Used pink zooms hoping for a fat Weakie but nothing. Water clarity was poor. The only highlight was spotting a Black-crowned Night Heron.

Got out of work early yesterday and since the wind set down some , decided to give it a shot. Ended up with 2 nice weakies to 6lbs.Had 1 at about 10lbs, full of roe let her go.Last 2 hours of the falling tide behind Sea Isle.Coast Guard station in T.I. opened Monday,they were doing safety boardings on the few boats that were out make sure you have all your gear.

NIGHTSTRIKES, great fish! Seeing that picture
got my blood flowing. I decided to put your
pink combo to good use...

Went out this morning between 5-6am for the last
of the outgoing. The conditions were good, but
no tiderunners. I still had fun with a couple
slot bass and a blue...
