I'm trying to recall when the sea bass bite picks up on the inshore reefs/structure(i.e. Cape May Reef, Old Grounds).... shouldn't it be soon?:confused:

thanks

Thanks, CapeMay. I thought there was a decent bite in the spring and thought it would have started already. I suppose later in the month might be worth a shot.

Thanks, again.

Our first trip last year was the third week in April. We did REAL GOOD on nice bass and Tog. Also killed the Dogs! I was going to try on Sunday but my weather curse came up again. Maybe next weekend. i will give it a try

one of our favorite wrecks is in 85 ft. It slopes up to 75 on top of the wreck. This is where i plan to start. If nothing there but dogs, i will shoot out farther. I also pla to check some inshore spots for tog. Waiting for a weather break. I was suposed to fish sunday but got blown out. Friday morning might be a window.

The past 5 years or so the inshore seabass fishing has not been great in the spring, but we used to see them showing up in 90-100 feet right about this time. Not a lot of fish, but lots of nicer fish.
