Pier 47 Marina

November 20, 2017:
Rick over at Pier 47 Marina told of a decent bite on bass eek in the rips of Cape May, and Rick says, "It's a good sign for this coming month." Tog fishing inshore is still yielding some nice fish, with green crabs being the only bait available now. The shop will close the shop on December 19, but Rick will be back at it on February 28, being on call for anglers needs in the meantime.



Previous Reports

  • November 13, 2017 Open or Close

    Rick over at Pier 47 Marina told of a solid blackfish inshore and a decent sea bass bite out front, as anglers still await any solid word on the arrival of bass. There have been a few keeper bass caught in the area, but it's a bit of work to find them as schoolies fill the back bay. There have been some nice sea bass caught on trips out front, but Mother Nature dictates those trips. The shop is on open, but you can call ahead to see if Rick is in the store.

  • November 6, 2017 Open or Close

    Rick over at Pier 47 Marina told of a strong bite inshore on the blackfish as anglers bide their time waiting for more striped bass (though reports of bass to the north trickling down). The back bay has some smaller bass hanging around the bluefish schools, and a keeper liner does get reported from time to time, along with the weakfish that are slowing up but still around. The rips are producing some bluefish as well, and those serious anglers are headed out front, where sea bass fishing has been solid, and limits are coming in from most anglers headed to 100 to 120 feet of water. Triggerfish are still being caught as waters remain in low 60's, but they should move on soon as cool nights lower temps a bit.

  • October 30, 2017 Open or Close

    Rick over at Pier 47 Marina told of a local bite on blackfish and the jetties are still holding some fish. There are anglers out front and doing well on sea bass, the Cape May and Wildwood reefs giving up some good humps in addition to some triggerfish and blues. The back waters are teeming with blues to 3 pounds and the weakfish are still being caught. There have been slim reports out on the sands, but Rick reports good bunker schools in the bay, a good sign of the coming bass run.

  • October 23, 2017 Open or Close

    Rick over at Pier 47 Marina told of a solid blackfish bite inshore again this past week, and anglers have had no problem getting a 15-inch eater into their buckets. Sifting through is required at this point in the season, but Rick says, "Guys are having a blast up there." Lots of small bluefish are out on the sands and in the bay, and a few larger choppers come to be caught now and again. The first big bass have been reported to the north, and Rick reported that it will be a couple weeks or more before the southern end sees some real action. Weakfish action has slowed, and kingfish went with them, but bunker schools moving into Delaware Bay is certainly a great sign of future fishing.
