SANDY HOOK TUNNY

Posted By Nick Honachefsky
Location: New Jersey Surf
 As the surf settles after the uncanny 5 year Superstorm Sandy anniversary blow, look for stripers to really make a push as historically this is the week we see the real first wave of bass move in. Small bluefish still dominate surf catches, with a smattering of albies, blackfish and ...

 Back in the 1980s when Lake Ontario was all the rage, we at The Fisherman had several Big O charter captains and guides providing us with weekly information for the Inland Report. One of these gentlemen was a fellow who guided on the Salmon River. I believe his name was ...

Posted By Charley Soares
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
 The narrow window of calm weather predicted for Saturday was off the mark by about 15 knots, but it would be the last day of fishing if the dire weekend forecast was accurate. There were school bass and a few scattered schools of albies working the shoreline from Westport to ...

 It’s that time of year when the seasons start fighting with each other. We’ve been enjoying an extended period of ‘shorts and flip-flops’ weather here and now things are starting to look a little more uncertain.

ALBIES SHOW OFF DELAWARE

Posted By Eric Burnley
Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay
 With sea bass season now open there is no doubt that will be the best bet for this week. Some heavy traffic on Sunday, but as the week goes on fishing pressure will decrease. The further offshore you go the better your chances of catching a larger class of fish. ...

Posted By Bob Misak
Location: Southern New Jersey
 The third week in October saw the rivers to the north offer some much better bass fishing as some keeper sized liners moved in; anglers in the Mullica and Egg Harbor rivers had been on a steady diet of shorter bass, but cooler nights have triggered a good bite with ...
