Fairfield Fishing Tackle

November 13, 2017:
Larry from Fairfield Fishing Tackle also informed us of the excellent bass catches coming from Raritan Bay and outside down from Sandy Hook. While most of the fishing has been on the troll with mojos, spoons and shads, anglers are also scoring some bass on surface plugs and jigs under the working birds, and livelining around the schools of bunker. Larry also mentioned good sea bass and tog fishing with some ling, tog and winter flounder mixed in for sinker bouncers.

    Good bottom fishing was at the top of the list when I spoke with Larry over at Fairfield Fishing Tackle. He said several anglers stopped by the store and told of good sinker bouncing with sea bass, porgies and tog supplying the fishing. Here too we were told of better numbers of big bass and some huge bluefish bending rods in both Raritan Bay and along the inshore waters. "We even got some reports of bass being caught in the suds this past week," he said.

He also mentioned good bottom fishing dominated by sea bass, porgies and some tog. Likewise big bluefish are being caught along the inshore waters.

    Bass, blues and bottom fishing was also on the menu at Fairfield Fishing Tackle. Larry told me now that sea bass fishing is open again more anglers are stopping in at the store and picking up bottom gear. On the bass fishing front striper fishing remained good in New York Harbor but was spotty in Raritan Bay. Some of the baitfish are starting to move and this should get the bass moving as well, he said. Big bluefish and albies are also supplying some good action along inshore waters, he added.
