BACK IN BLACK

Posted By J. B. Kasper, October 23, 2017
BACK IN BLACK
The Raritan Bay and Shark River Inlet fleet is back into the black sea bass as of Sunday, and as some anglers are finding on baots like Roman'Round Sport Fishing Charters the reefs are giving up more than just humpbacks but also a few triggers and some blackfish as well as the porgies.
 It was another mixed bag of fishing along the northern coast during the third week in October. On the bass fishing front, after what looked like a breakout weekend of striped bass fishing, the bass action slipped back a few notches. While some boats and shore bound fishermen did get into some bass, the general consciences’ was where did the big fish go? Bluefishing was also all over the board with some schools of smaller fish roaming Raritan Bay, and some bigger slammers making things interesting along the inshore waters. Then there was the: where did all these albies come from? As the rockets filled in for the stripers and blues in some places. Weakfish also disappeared as did the bonito. Bottom fishing remained a solid mix of porgies and tog, and finally sea bass for the fish box. The reopening of sea bass fishing put more anglers on the water than we have seen since the closing of fluke fishing. In all a week that had some people talking to themselves.
