WAITIN’ ON STRIPERS

Posted By Bob Misak
Location: Southern New Jersey
 The past week in South Jersey we saw an increased bass bite as the recent cold snap got those stripers charged up a bit, and anglers chunking the beaches of Brigantine and drifting the back bays with live bait did quite well. Bass to 30 pounds and over are now ...

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
 This cold snap seems to have many anglers worrying about the end. But the blackfishing has been great, pretty much statewide. In fact, this was the best week for size for the entire fall with several 8- to 11-pounders taken this week. Striper action has been tough in the eastern ...

Location: New England Surf
 Surfcasters up and down the coast have been showing a growing concern about the health of the striper stocks, and I am right there with all of you. I have been surf fishing for more than 20 years, and in the time between 2002 and this year, I have seen ...

NORTH FORK BLITZES

Posted By Fred Golofaro
Location: Long Island Surf
 I suppose we can call it some semblance of a fall run but the bulk of the fish making up that run in many areas are running anywhere from 12 or 14 inches to 26 inches and that just doesn’t cut it for most of the casters I’ve been talking ...

NORTH FORK STAYS HOT

Posted By Tony Salerno
Location: East End Long Island
 November spells blackfish, and therefore blackfish will be this week’s best bet. Not because of what the calendar says, but rather after the hard blow early in the week, water temps chilled down to around 60 degrees and sparked off the blackfish bigtime since Wednesday. Weather you fish the Sound, ...

Location: Rhode Island
 November fishing is off to a great start with unseasonably warm air and water temperatures proving anglers with excellent late season opportunities. Striped bass, bluefish and albies continue to chase bait along the beaches and the ground fishing for black sea bass, scup and tautog has been awesome! Barring any ...

Posted By J. B. Kasper
Location: Northern NJ & Hudson River
 After the deluge last Sunday and the gale to start the week, the striper stuff finally hit the proverbial fan by Wednesday. Party, charter and private boats hammered the bigger stripers to 40-plus pounds in Raritan Bay and to a smaller extent outside when they were able to fish. A ...

Posted By Geoffrey Lawrence
Location: West End South Long Island
 Bass are red hot and it’s almost a can’t miss proposition. The action is outstanding south and west of Debs Inlet on Mojo rigs and bunker spoons for fish to 42-pounds. The basic depths to fish are 40 to 60-ft. Clam bellies nailed bass along the bridges and at the ...
