New Jersey & Delaware Bay


Posted By Jim Hutchinson, Jr., December 4, 2017
Elyse Crescitelli was home from London for the Thanksgiving holiday and caught this 14.8-pound tautog while fishing with her dad Capt. Frank.
Entering the home stretch for 2017 the best bet for many boats sailing out of ports in Delaware and New Jersey continues to be blackfish. December is an excellent month for tackling tautog on the reefs and wrecks along the coast, with white leggers currently the best bet offshore with greenies a close second. On the local jetties and canals a few blackfish continue to get scored by jetty jocks, where crab selection isn’t as critical (some taking clams as well.) Stripers are spread out with the best body of good fish in our southern reporting range from Cape May County down to Delaware Bay and beyond; fish are still being registered of course by those north as well, with trolling spoons, mojos and plugs along the fence a good bet for keepers. In the surf, some casters are scaling down and turning to Avas with teasers as well as sand eel imitations. Stumble onto a pile of fish and it’s good action, even though keepers are a bit harder to come by. If you’re in the LBI Surf Tournament this weekend is the final weekend to score; plenty of daily prizes left, and just scoring a good fish any day this week could make it worth your while to soak a bait between Barnegat Inlet and Beach Haven in the suds.
