BACK BAY STRIPERS

Posted By Bob Misak
Location: Southern New Jersey
 The past week in South Jersey has been steady once again now that the sea bass season is open, and anglers had a reason to get out front, and the weather to do so. Some nice sized humpbacks were found by rail huggers and a couple fish over 5-pounds were ...

BASS ACTION HEATS UP

Posted By Tom Melton
Location: South Shore Long Island
 Finally it appears the fall run of stripers has arrived in full force…well not full force, but at least in a positive way. Anglers trolling outside this past week had bass over 40 pounds, and I also learned the action to the east was good on the pods. The night ...

Posted By Bob Danielson
Location: North Shore Long Island
 The weakfish that were hanging around in the area for the past few weeks seem to have moved on. They were sure a big and welcomed surprise for everyone on the North Shore this season. There are still plenty of false albacore roaming around from one end of the Island ...

DON’T BE FOOLED

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
 I’ve been battling a nasty cold all week, complete with a 103 fever and rampant insomnia so I haven’t gotten out at all since last Saturday night. With that said there are still plenty of fish on the move no matter where you live. There are still teen bass up ...

Location: New Jersey Freshwater
 Finally I think the cooler weather is here to say. Water temps in the sweetwater have dropped into a more seasonal level and the fall feed is on in most waters. With water temps in the mid to low 60s most of the better fishing is on minnows, either live-lined ...

Posted By Greg Metcalf
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
 Fishing in the Gulf of Maine has been very good this fall. Tuna fishing has been off the charts, but with the commercial season currently closed there is a lot of catch-and-release angling going on as there is a major slug of fish being found over the 73-inch limit. Bottom ...

GOOD BOTTOM FISHING

Posted By J. B. Kasper
Location: Northern NJ & Hudson River
 Improved bass fishing, good bottom fishing, big blues and feisty false albacore highlighted the action along the northern coast most of this past week. Striped bass fishing showed some promise with better numbers being caught in the bay and the first decent catches being seen in the ocean. Bottom fishing ...

IMPROVING BASS BITE

Posted By Karen Wall
Location: Central New Jersey
 The weather tortured a lot of folks last week, with a good day of fishing followed by a day that just wasn’t conducive to being on the water. Patience is being sorely tested because the stripers continue to drag their tails about showing up. There are scattered reports of big ...

NOVEMBER OPPORTUNITIES

Posted By John Hanecak
Location: Rhode Island
 November often signals the end of “fishing season” for many or Rhode Island’s anglers, but there are plenty of opportunities to get out and put a bend in the rod. Fishing along the beaches will likely continue to produce good numbers of small striped bass right through the end of ...

OFFSHORE WRAP-UP

Posted By Tom Pagliaroli
Location: New Jersey Offshore
 It’s a wrap! This is it for 2017 Offshore Report, and a tumultuous season it was. Between early and late arrivals of migrating yellowfin, bluefin and longfin teamed with the relative scarcity of white and blue marlin, not to mention bigeye, and trip-aborting weather and sea conditions during the ...
