JETTY JOCKEYIN’

JETTY JOCKEYIN’
While they’re not all monsters, the tautog available along the jetties, sod banks, piers and bulkheads right now make for some pretty consistent action with more than a few keeper 15-inchers to be had during the course of a week of surfside action for the bucket brigade.
 As expected, the fishing in South Jersey was mostly an “inshore thing” as Hurricane Jose kicked it up along the coast heading into the September 23-34 weekend, with all eyes on Maria moving northward to end the month. In turn, anglers found a bit of success being land-bound. Blackfish are plentiful on the structure around the bridges and inlets, and a few kingfish are being caught in the mix. Weakfish, though spread about, are hitting shedders and bloodworms, with bluefishing being solid as well, and most shops stocking fresh mullet as the run begins. Striped bass are milling about in some of the back waters and though most are shorts, quite a few keepers are being caught as more and more anglers show interest. Best bet heading into the final weekend of September is to set up along the sod or take a trip up on the jetty for some action; if you pick a quiet time, a nice weakfish may accompany you to the fry pan.

Down at breezy point the striper fishing is dead along with the blues. A good mix of bonito and albacore along the local waters of Coney Island and breezy. Still red hot on the porgy bite and a few large fluke for fun.
