  • November 20, 2017 Open or Close

    Tammie and Dave at Avalon Hodge Podge reported that the local bass chasers are finally starting to see some solid action, with bass being caught both in the surf and back in the bay, with Tammie reporting some schools of larger fish off Atlantic City. Tog fishing has been stellar with anglers catching limits of blackfish at TI Bridge, the Eighth Street jetty and out front at the reefs. Mark Robbins of Cape May Courthouse weighed in a 17-inch white chin weighing 2.97 pounds, reporting non-stop action on green crabs. The shop is closed for the season as of November 25 and Tammie and Dave give a heartfelt "thanks" to all their customers this year for making the season a great one.

  • November 13, 2017 Open or Close

    Tammie and Dave at Avalon Hodge Podge reported that the tog fishing is still strong, with anglers chomping at the bit for the limit increase in a couple days, and it looks as though blackfish will hang in there for it. The T.I. bridge and 8th Street have been the spots of choice. Bass fishing has picked up just a bit and those anglers hanging around out back have had a few days of god fishing, but there are a mess of shorter bass around. The shop will close its doors for the season on November 25th, and you can call ahead for bait availability.

  • November 6, 2017 Open or Close

    Tammie and Dave at Avalon Hodge Podge reported that the bass fishing is starting slowly, and reports of stripers are surfacing from the surf and back bay, though the fish are smaller in size. Tog fishing has been very strong, and anglers are having a blast at the TI Bridge and out at Eighth Street. Tammie also reported solid numbers of blackfish out front on the reefs, as well as some nice sea bass, with Scott Ferrara of Sparta hooking a nice 20-inch whitechin on Friday. Snapper blues continue to inhabit local waters and the largest of the choppers is around the 4-pound mark. The shop will close for the season on November 25, and you can stop by and get some supplies while Tammie and Dave are still at the registers.

  • October 30, 2017 Open or Close

    Tammie and Dave at Avalon Hodge Podge reported that the bass fishing around the back has been okay, though a lot of shorts are mixing it up as anglers await the motherlode. Bluefish continue to fill local waters and tog fishing has offered lots of action again this week, with more shorts to sift as time passes. A few keeper bass are coming in by those who persist, and the offshore fishing is good for those who can get out front. Tammie tells of a good bite on mahi, and Tim and his crew hit the Wilmington to load up this past week.
