Capt'n Hippo Bait and Tackle

November 13, 2017:
At Capt'n Hippo Bait & Tackle, Lenny said it was a tough week with not a lot of reports coming in. He heard about some stripers and bluefish in the surf from Point Pleasant to the Barnegat Inlet but other than that it was quiet.

    At Capt'n Hippo Bait & Tackle, Lenny said he's hearing there are still some striped bass hanging out in the Toms River and in the back bay areas of Barnegat Bay. You have to put in some work and move around to find them, however. If you can get near the sod banks, live eels will entice those fish out of hiding. There are fish to be caught; you just need to put in your time.

    At Capt'n Hippo Bait & Tackle, Lenny said there are still small stripers being picked up in the Toms River and in parts of Barnegat Bay. There hasn't been much talk about snappers of late; they appear to have moved out for the most part. He has plenty of soft baits for your catch-and-release fishing and bait if you're looking for bigger fish.

    At Capt'n Hippo Bait & Tackle, Lenny said it was a real busy weekend with folks gearing up for all kinds of fishing. Those sticking close by are still catching little blues at Mathis Park. They've just about graduated from snapper-size to cocktail size now, but they're a lot of fun. Little striped bass are in the Toms River as well and plenty of fun for the catch-and-release crowd. Those looking for bigger fish are venturing into the ocean and catching bigger striped bass by boat; Lenny said he heard much of the action was north of Barnegat Inlet. Keeper bass and blues are being caught on the beach as well. Just a reminder Monday through Saturday and 8-4 on Sunday.

    At Capt'n Hippo Bait & Tackle, Lenny said Huddy Park is keeping people busy. There are still some snapper bluefish kicking around, but what's been a pleasant surprise is there are a lot of shortie stripers biting as well. "It seems to be almost all day," he said, which means this is a great opportunity to play catch and release with them.
