Keyport Marine Basin

November 13, 2017:
Jim Fazekas hit the scale Keyport Marine Basin with a 16.66-pound striper he caught while fishing with Dan Miller. Sources at the basin said early week saw some excellent fishing off Swinburn and Hoffman islands, but it was nothing compared to the action south of Sandy Hook on Saturday. Big bass some in the upper 40s hammered the schools of bunker and boats livelining bunker kept rods bent all day despite the early morning winds, we were told.

    Striped bass fishing was the name of the game this past week, according to sources at the Keyport Marine Basin. Several boats trolled spoons for good catches out of the Basin. Little Joe and John topped their catch on Saturday with a trio of keeper bass. Jason and the crew maxed out with porgies and sea bass on Saturday, despite the fact that Jason was the captain of the Asalt Weapon on the trip, we were told. While most boats were chasing stripers this past week bottom fishing was also excellent as well as the inshore bluefishing, we were told.

    At the Keyport Marine Basin we got word of spotty bass action, good bluefishing and good porgy and tog fishing. Most of the bass action remains in lower New York Harbor, while the bluefish action is spread out in the bay and along the inshore waters. Some shots of blues are also hitting the beaches sporadically. The top bass to come into the store this past week was a 44-inch bass taken from the Shrewsbury Rocks by Dan Miller during the week. Here too we were told that bottom fishing in garnering more interest now that sea bass fishing has reopened.

    At the Keyport Marine Basin news of bass being caught in New York Harbor sent a few boats from the basin to the harbor. Here too we were told most of the better size bass are being caught on eels after dark. Porgies and tog continue to keep sinker bouncers happy and tons of sea bass are being recycled. Some of the best fishing has been the bluefish action with smaller fish in the bay and gators being caught in the ocean, we were told.
