BAY STRIPERS
When he’s not in the shop at Absecon Bay Sportsman Center, Capt. Dave Showell has been out back on Great Bay, Little Bay and the Mullica River putting his charters onto a mix of slots and keepers.
The past week in Southern New Jersey was a transitional one as folks abandoned the fluke. The Mullica River started to see some keeper bass, most of them tag fish at 24 to 27 inches, and the Great Egg River has been giving up some sheepshead if you find and fish the structure with crabs. There were some oddball fish in the mix and a couple pinfish and pompano were caught, a sure sign of shorter days and cooling waters. Cocktail blues seem to be everywhere there is salt water, and triggerfish are still hanging around for anglers to add to their dinner goodies. Atlantic City’s jetties have also given up some keeper bass, and the city structure has tons of blues and now a few keeper blackfish. Delaware Bay is still full from shore to shore with bluefish, and some spike weakies and small croakers are slowly moving in. Surf anglers up and down the coast are finding plenty of kingfish, and crabbing is the best of the year.
