The first solid bass action was reported this week, just in time for the April 15th season opener.
Striped bass season opened this Monday and the timing couldn’t have been any better, even if most of the first wave of fish to hit our shores fell short of the 28-inch size limit. Word reached me from Mike Curley that the Robert Moses surf was deep in short bass up to 24 inches on Thursday. Big bass are on our doorstep as North Jersey waters came alive with better quality fish this past week. Some of this action is taking place within reach of west end boatmen. Look for several open and charter boats to turn their sights to stripers this week. There have been a few more rumblings of blues, and lots of bunker are being reported from a number of South Shore areas. Look for flounder to improve a bit as bay waters slowly warm, and keep an eye on the Shinnecock Canal for the first signs of fluke, sea robins, porgies and maybe a weakfish or two over the next week or so. Blues and bass should also be making through the narrow waterway. On the freshwater side, trout remain in play for those who haven’t had their fill.
