November 13, 2017:
Over at Fin-atics Bill reported that tog fishing was still an item off the bridges and back in the bay, with some larger blackfish being brought in this past week. A good number of white chins were from 18 to 20 inches this past week, warm waters keeping them inshore and the shop hopes they will be here when the limit jumps this coming week. Bass fishing in the back bay has also offered some bigger bass being reported as anglers drift spot, eels or toss plastics and plugs around the bridges and off the sod.

    Over at Fin-atics Will reported that some striped bass are beginning to show up in local waters and anglers are finding them quickly; Rich came in with a striper of 8.8 pounds on Wednesday, using eels as bait; he released two more liners in the 30- to 33-inch range from the GE Inlet. The crew also reported some anglers getting out front to GE and OC reefs and sifting out some small sea bass to get a limit or two, with a few tog in the mix. The local inshore haunts are still producing blackfish as well, and green crabs and bunker will be at the shop for your trips as bass are on the move and whitechins hang in there.

    Over at Fin-Atics Will reports that the bass fishing around the bridges has picked up a bit but has its days; soft plastics and plugs lead the charge on hooking bass as little blues harass baits, and there are some short bass to contend with as well. Tog fishing is still solid though anglers are dealing with a high ratio on shorter fish now. The bluefish have been a bit more sizeable, and Will tells of the choppers getting into the 16-inch mark, with weakfish and kingfish moving out.

    Over at Fin-atics Ed reported that anglers are now concentrated on those sea bass out front, and reports of humpbacks on OC and GE reefs are trickling in with reports of some sea bass inshore around the bridges as well. Ed tells of lots and lots of bluefish to 12 inches in the area and anglers are grabbing them up for the fry pans. There are some kingfish and a couple weakies in the mix, with bloodworms being the bait to use. Anglers are also still on the tog fishing over at Corson's and over by Longport, and green crabs are in the shop for your liking. Bass are hitting white plastics and top water plugs in the back, and most are in the 16- to 20-inch range as anglers await those bigger liners to move down.

    Over at Fin-atics Justin reported that there is plenty of action for those who want it, and the blackfishing has been phenomenal all month, though there are short fish to contend with, a 15-inch keeper can be had on each trip. Small blues are over, and those fishing for short bass around the bridges have found some keepers, despite the near 70-degree water temperatures. Justin also had some reports of sheepshead still hanging around over at OC Longport Pier, with a lone trigger rearing up from time to time. Also, if you can get a good deep hole up near the sod, the perch fishing is very good as well, with bloodworms or shedders working to whack some.
