FISHING LOGS: New Jersey & Delaware Bay
Central New Jersey


Posted By Tom Pagliaroli, May 15, 2017
Cain Ernest hit a 43-pound, 50-inch striper off Seaside last Friday before the monsoon hit while trolling a white Maja in 60 feet of water.
Things turned on along the Central Coast from LBI up into Monmouth County last week, as the mid-week full moon seems to have been the trigger most striper guys were waiting for. Bunker schools are spread out across coastal waters and a few big fish are sliding in from deeper water at prime times to provide boaters with a shot at some good fish. Trolling bunker spoons and mojos from Barnegat Inlet to Manasquan Inlet should put bass and more bass in the boxes, but you could expect some interference from the hordes of slammer blues that are still moving north. Live bunker action is officially getting underway, and swim shads and topwaters should start producing more striper catches out front while still firing up the Dream Boat contending bluefish. The New Jersey Marine Fisheries Council is expected to meet on Wednesday, May 17 at 4 p.m. at Avalon Community Center, 3001 Avalon Road in Avalon, NJ to take up the fluke fiasco, with the Central Jersey coast being a break point where the three at 19 versus three at 18 debate seems to get pretty gray.
