Rock & Roll Charters

November 13, 2017:
Capt. TJ Karbowski of Rock and Roll Charters said he lost several trips to the weather this week. Bass fishing has been slowing way down, TJ says he's wrapping up the bass season (unless they make a surprise comeback.) Togging has been decent; water temps are dropping and the fish are starting to move into deeper water which has been good for them. Things seem to be winding down, but togging should be good for at least a couple more weeks. The official end to the Rock and Roll season is November 19th, but they are already looking forward to May 19th 2018, when the season starts over again!

Previous Reports

  • November 6, 2017 Open or Close

    Capt. TJ Karbowski of Rock and Roll Charters said the storm last week is still affecting the local fishing. The water just hasn't had enough time to clear up yet. With that said, this doesn't mean there are no fish around, it just means that you have to try a little harder—find pockets of clean water, target tighter windows in the tide. There have been some bass around and the blackfishing has been decent at times as well. Once the tides slow down from the full moon and the water has had a little more time to clear, things will get better. Before the storm, the fishing was good, the water temps have not changed much, the fishing will pick up again, we just have to be patient. TJ is booking trips through November 19th, reserve yours now, before the season passed us by.

    Capt. TJ Karbowski of Rock and Roll Charters gave his report from the helm of his couch on Sunday as the storm warnings and high winds kept him tied to the dock. He said the striper fishing this week was very good, a mix of sizes, no shortage of keepers. Porgies slowed way down, water temps dropped quite a bit and it seems like the porgies took the hint. Togging is starting to come into its own now. The action is picking up on the deeper pieces now, there's a good mix of sizes and the action is pretty fast. Blues are still very hard to come by. We still have plenty of nice weather in the forecast, but the season is winding down, if you want to get another trip in before the snow flies call now, TJ is booking trips through November 19th.

    Capt. TJ Karbowski of Rock and Roll Charters said blackfish mania has made trolling for bass and blues into a game of Whack-A-Mole. Despite that, the striper fishing just keeps getting a little better every day. This week they had great catches of bass from schoolies to 30 pounds. Bluefish seem to be scattered. There's no consistency to the bite, lately you just have to—more or less—luck into them. But when they show it's usually a decent blitz. Porgies are still red hot and they haven't even moved off their summer spots—warm water may be the culprit. Blackfishing seems to be starting out decent, but it should really come to life in the next two weeks. TJ is booking trips through November 19th.

    Capt. TJ Karbowski of Rock and Roll Charters said bass fishing has been good this week and seems to be improving with every trip. There's a big pile of bass off the Connecticut River and they seem to be moving west now. With the new moon coming this week, the bite should shape up nicely. Bluefishing has been very good again this week, wide range of sizes and fast action. The porgy bite is ridiculous, water temps have dropped some so they may start to slow down within the next couple weeks, but it's lock and load right now and the fish are big. Once the porgies cool off, TJ will begin hunting blackfish with a vengeance. No matter what species you like, the Fall Run is on and the fishing is good; now is the time to book a trip, TJ is booking trips through November 19th.
