OPTIONS A PLENTY

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
 Whether you prefer freshwater or salt, the surf of offshore, there is a lot to do this week around the Cape. Freshwater fishing is excellent right now for trout as they prefer the cooling waters. Some big browns are being landed on the Cape to go along with the rainbows ...

REBOUNDING WALLEYE

Posted By J. B. Kasper
Location: New Jersey Freshwater
 It was a tale of hot and cold, and I do mean cold, fishing for sweetwater fishermen this past week. Just about everyone I spoke with said the week started off with good bass and crappie action through out our reporting area. The 70-degree air temperatures and mid 60-degree water ...

SPOTLIGHT ON STRIPERS

Posted By J. B. Kasper
Location: Northern NJ & Hudson River
 Striped bass fishing stole the spotlight on the north coast this past week. While weather and sea conditions were not pristine and most boats spent a couple of days in port, early and late week fishing served up the best fishing of the fall so far. It was trolling in ...

THE HEAT IS ON!

Posted By Nick Honachefsky
Location: New Jersey Surf
 Here we go! Even though the northern part of the state has been on surf bass for a little while, the central and southern shores have now seen a pretty solid push of fish into their areas. From shorts to sows, bass have been hitting bunker chunks, snagged bunker, plugs, ...

THE HOURGLASS

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
 When we reach this point in the season, I start to look at the migration—both literally and metaphorically—as an hourglass. In the literal sense, there is the urgency brought on by the sand running low on the top side of the funnel. Metaphorically speaking the fishery heavily favors the southern ...

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 ...

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 ...

 The guys down in the central part of the state are salivating over the reports of the striped bass bite in Raritan Bay and waiting and praying for those fish to make a real run down the coast. There are some keeper bass getting picked up along shore, some on ...

 Striper fishing has been seeing an uptick in activity this week. Plenty of stripers have been falling to both bait and artificials. There really hasn’t been any big fish landed this week but we have heard of fish to 20 pounds. The local beaches have seen plenty of fish to ...

MAN UP!

Posted By Dave Anderson
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 ...
