FISHING LOGS: New Jersey & Delaware Bay
Southern New Jersey


Posted By Bob Misak, October 15, 2018
“More migratory striped bass slamming topwater plugs this morning,” noted Capt. Dan Shafer of Insomniac Guide Service out of Stone Harbor last week. With fall temps finally in the air, perhaps a new wave of coastal stripers will invade the South Jersey beaches and back bays soon enough. Photo courtesy of Insomniac Guide Service via Facebook.
The past week in South Jersey began with more humid weather, but by Friday anglers finally got the fall weather they longed for. Air temperatures plummeted to the 40’s in the evenings and sea bass season began as folks were able to get out front and catch some nice humps. Inshore fishing brought about a few more keeper and slot bass in the local rivers, with bluefish to 3 pounds lighting up both the surf and back bays, and weakfish are now mixing it up, but in certain areas. Puppy drum are making their fall appearance here and there, and blackfishing on the local structure was much of the same with lots of short fish being sifted out to get to that 15-inch fish. Crabbing remains super solid for those who commit to a day of drop-lining or trap tossing.
