Keyport Marine Basin

April 23, 2018:
Excellent, excellent fishing was the way John over at the Keyport Marine Basin described this past week's fishing. Trolling mojos, swimming plugs, and drowning worms and chunking bunker were the top fish getters. John said the best fishing was from the mouth of the creek to Cliffwood on the moving tides.

    The baitfish are all over the flats along the lower bay and the bass are homing in on them, said Frank over at the Keyport Marine Basin. The boat ramp is starting to see more boats slide into the water and reports coming back tell of plenty of short bass and increase in amounts of keepers being trolled and caught on clams, worms and bunker, we were told. Frank added that so far the Basin has been able to keep up with the demand for bait, which they have stocked up on.

    Still not much going on reported sources at the Keyport Marine Basin. They told us a few boats slid down the boat ramp and the store has been hearing of some short bass being caught on worms at Cliffwood and Union beaches, along with an occasional keeper being beached. If only the weatherman would behave himself, they said.

    A couple of days of warmer weather stoked up some fishing along the lower bay at Cliffwood, said John over at the Keyport Marine Basin. Most of the bass are shorts being caught on worms and clams. However, a rumor of a good size bass being pulled from the surf has been circulating but not confirmed he said. John told me the ramp at the marina is open and serviceable, but the basin is running behind when it comes to getting the basin ready because of the weather.

    The boat ramp at the Keyport Marine Basin is open. I spoke with them over the weekend and they said the weather has killed the fishing and participation so far, but the basin is in top shape and taking bookings for slips.
