Keyport Marine Basin

October 15, 2018:
Rain on Friday and Saturday morning cut in on the numbers of anglers fishing over the weekend, said sources at the Keyport Marine Basin. Reports on the striped bass fishing showed hit or miss action. Bluefishing remained decent for smaller fish, and bottom fishing has been a nice mix of sea bass, tog, porgies and triggerfish, when conditions have been favorable.

    Another place we got a report of slower striper fishing was at the Keyport Marine Basin. Sources there told us they trolled spoons off the West Bank on Thursday and only had one knockdown. There are still small blues and stripers working on the tons of baitfish along the lower side of the bay. Boats sailing out of the basin reported very good porgy fishing along with some albacore being caught out side.

    The main topic over at the Keyport Marine Basin was stripers and good numbers of them. Sources there said plenty of shorts with some keepers are being caught in the Keyport area around the schools of bunker. In New York Harbor and elsewhere eels and chunked bunker are scoring the linesiders, they said. In addition they also mentioned that along with the stripers, tog are being caught in the Old Orchard area.

    A couple of reports came our way from sources at the Keyport Marine Basin. Fluke fishing continued to be decent at the mouth of the creeks, despite the poor conditions. Short stripers are being caught along the south side of the bay with a few keepers mixed in. The whole lower side of the bay is loaded with peanut bunker, rainfish and other baitfish and once they start moving fishing should break open quickly. And if you want to have some light tackle fun there are plenty of big winged moochers to be caught, as the sea robin invasion is on. Don't forget that big sea robins are eligible species in The Fisherman's annual Dream Boat Fishing Challenge!

    We finally got a decent report on some fish being caught from the Keyport Marine Basin. Sources there told us boats fishing out of the basin were into decent numbers of fluke to 4 pounds right in the creek close to the basin. Sam Mell and his fishing partner limited out with flatties to 4 pounds on Saturday morning. Here to the word as some small blues and stripers were also being caught on peanut bunker in the same area.
