TURNING TO COD

Fluke season is in the history books; it will be a while before sea bass will be on the menu again and it sure don’t look like the weatherman will change his mean nature this fall. Likewise it will suffice to say that the New Jersey Marine Council meeting was more of the same old, same old. However, it wasn’t all a downer this past week. In fact some things are looking up. We got reports of stripers being caught in several places; some bigger bluefish starting to show up and bonito, false albacore and some mahi are livening the ocean fishing up. Bottom fishing is also serving up plenty of porgies, ling, cod, big winter flounder and triggerfish. One interesting item is there are some mixed size stripers and bluefish moving through the East River and this could mean the fish are on the move in the Sound. Likewise the longer nights and cooler weather have combined to drop water temps into the fall mode a lot quicker than normal. The one joker in the deck this fall will be the ongoing weather problems in the south Atlantic.
