Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
With the arrival of the New Year, be sure that you’ve renewed your fishing licenses. Some states validate a license for 365 days from the date of purchase, while others expires annually on the 1st of the year, so make sure you know which is which in your chosen waters! ...

BOTTOM BOUNCE-BACK

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
As has become the norm, when weather is good, so is the fishing and that’s what we had over the weekend on the cod grounds off Block Island. It wasn’t any sort of lights-out, historic fishing, but there were fish to be had with a range of species from cod ...

Striped bass, blackfish, porgies, pollock, ling, white hake, and even a monkfish (see photo and caption for details) round out our feast of the seven fishes as we near the Christmas weekend. A few straggling stripers in the North/Central surf, the best of the action is on the troll ...

GO DEEP FOR JUMBO SEA BASS

Posted By Fred Golofaro
Location: Long Island, Metro NY
Well, those two days of spectacular haddock catches we spoke about in last week’s report turned out to be short lived. Followed by three days of wind and rough seas that kept boats from getting back to the fishing grounds, there were very few haddock to be found when they ...

KEEPIN’ WARM

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
Overall the bite this past week was not hot, but it wasn’t cold, either; I’d say it was a solid “warm” instead. Haddock are still being caught off Block Island, but not in the 100-fish boatloads of the week before. Cod and sea bass are more prevalent, but at times ...

Location: New Jersey & Delaware Bay
For the past several weeks, there’s been a lot of “shoulda been here yesterday” comments thrown around area beaches and tackle shops. With short stripers piling on sand eels throughout much of Ocean and Monmouth County, the only way to know for sure if there’s a good bite is by ...

BACK IN BLACKFISH

Posted By Jim Hutchinson, Jr.
Location: New Jersey & Delaware Bay
For those looking to angle up some tablefare, the tautog bite along the Jersey and Delaware coast has been the best bet. A little weather window is about all we need for boats to get out to the artificial reefs, where good fish have been had for folks jigging ...

COD’s UP, TOG’s DOWN

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
After some rather solid blackfishing reports last week, the lowly tog took a noticeable backseat to some other late-fall bottom fishing species like cod, black sea bass and even haddock. In general, even when boats got out this week, blackfishing was reported to be slow to “just ok” since checking-in ...

HADDOCK AND HERRING ON THE MENU

Posted By Fred Golofaro
Location: Long Island, Metro NY
There are two interesting developments on the fishing scene this week that should get the attention of anglers who don’t mind dealing with a little cold weather. The first solid reports of herring came our way, with all of them emanating from North Shore harbors like Huntington, Northport, Cold Spring ...
