Location: Southern New Jersey
Heading into the third weekend of November we had another tough stretch of weather with a mid-week storm interfering with anglers trolling out front, though some real bruiser striped bass were caught, mostly on mojos.

TURKEY DAY STRIPERS

Posted By Tom Melton
Location: South Shore Long Island

It was another week of less than fishable weather, but anglers made the best of it on those rare days when boats could sail.  Monday saw a fantastic tuna and swordfish bite in the canyons while Saturday the inshore boats were able to find some sea bass.  On the Chesapeake, ...

BASS AND TOG COMBO

Posted By Geoffrey Lawrence
Location: North Shore Long Island
Everyone is happy about the overall numbers of blackfish but not so happy about the number of keepers. The fish are not hard to find and large numbers of them are available on local wrecks and rocky structure. Some spots to try are the City Island area bridges, Execution Light, ...
