HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Posted By John Hanecak
Location: Rhode Island
 Tautog fishing remains a very good bet for this week if the weather cooperates. Reports have been consistently good with a number of limit catches and fish over 10 pounds in the reports this past week. Fishing along the beaches for striped bass is also likely to produce well as ...

MORE BASS COMING

Posted By Fred Golofaro
Location: Long Island Surf
 Not much of a change from last week with lots of small stripers in many locations and a handful of better fish in a few scattered areas. It seems that when some larger baitfish, usually bunker but we heard of butterfish and weakfish this week, work their way into casting ...

Posted By Tony Gatto
Location: East End Long Island
 As the season winds down and we head towards the New Year, allow me the opportunity to wish everyone a safe and healthy Holiday Season. This will be our last issue until January 2018. On the fishing front, togging is far from winding down, in fact so are the sea ...

Posted By Bob Misak
Location: Southern New Jersey
 The third week of November action in South Jersey was fair as the back waters of Absecon and beaches of Ocean City and Brigantine saw their share of good bass fishing. Moving into late November and December, the fall migration is in full swing as anglers are lighting it ...

SOUTHERLY MIGRATION

Posted By Eric Burnley
Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay
 It was a tough week for fishing in the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean, but the sheltered waters of Indian River Inlet did produce a few keeper tog and even fewer striped bass. The way the weather looks for the Thanksgiving weekend there may be an opportunity to fish the ...

STRIPED BASS MADNESS

Posted By Karen Wall
Location: Central New Jersey
 It has been another week of good fishing, especially for those fishing from boats. Striped bass fishing was very good for the snag-and-drop crowd and for those pulling bunker spoons. Sea bass and porgies are filling baskets and there were mixed reports on the blackfish under the expanded bag limit. ...

STRIPERS CENTER STAGE

Posted By Geoffrey Lawrence
Location: West End South Long Island
 It’s bass here, and bass there. It’s bass, bass everywhere! This week stripers were again center stage. It’s your weapon of choice as to what you employ to bag a bass. Diamond and gold jigs, and Mojo rigs are drilling fish in the 40 to 55-ft. depths in and around ...

SWEETWATER ROUNDUP

Posted By J. B. Kasper
Location: New Jersey Freshwater
 This will be our last report of the 2017 season; suffice to say most anglers probably won’t miss the 2017 season. Simply put it was an off year with too many weather problems and inconsistent conditions. While on occasion there was some good fishing, seemed like every time the good ...

TACKLING TOG

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
 From the west end of the Canal and on out through Buzzards Bay past the islands, blackfish/tautog remain king. The bite is still pretty good in shallow, but it is moving deeper and some nice market-sized cod have begun to filter into the catch. Keep in mind that the 2017 ...

THANKSGIVING STRIPERS

Posted By Tom Melton
Location: South Shore Long Island
 The season is winding down, but for this week, you should really try and hit the ocean. The bass are still around – water is still only 58 degrees, and there is bait all over. You may have to weed through smaller fish, but larger baits, trolling Mojo or bunker ...
