BASS OFF TO GOOD START

BASS OFF TO GOOD START
Bluefish are on the move along the Jersey Coast. They should be in our waters by the end of the month.
 The big news on the fishing scene this week has been the bluefish moving up the coast from Mid-Jersey. There were plenty of blues including a few big choppers taken from the waters around Atlantic City this past week. I was told there is a video posted to YouTube showing loads of blues falling for minnow plugs from one of the piers down there. It won’t be long before we actually have them off of our coastline now. We should start seeing, or at least hearing about, the blues up here before the end of April. The striper fishery seems to be getting off to a good start as we’ve heard of lots of schoolies all over the North Shore as well as the tidal creeks along the South Shore holding schoolies. I have even heard of a good amount of fish in the harbors along the North Shore this week too. Small swim shads along with small minnow plugs have been turning most of the fish as far as artificial lures go but bloodworms have been working for those throwing bait. The winter flounders are starting to make the reports along the North Shore this week but the blackfish haven’t started to move yet. The freshwater scene has been providing plenty of action with trout that have been stocked by the DEC and I even got the first report of a pickerel this week. This week’s warmer weather report has me hopeful that winter is behind us and the fishing will be kicking into high gear this week.
