    At Fisherman's Headquarters, Greg said the brutal temps between Christmas and New Year's kept a lot of folks inside and off the water, but some folks did find some fish in the surf before the deep freeze. Michael Baytoff was fishing bait in Beach Haven on Christmas Eve in the rain and wind and landed one nice fish. "Had a fish pull my conventional rod with a bunker head right out of the spike. Got the rod back but lost the fish and the spike in the rough surf," he relayed to Greg. George Mohr also reported on a few bass off the beach to end the year.

    At Fisherman's Headquarters, Fishhead Greg there's some schoolies along the beach and herring most smaller lures and smaller baits. Moving to find fish is your better bet for catching fish, he said. Bucktails, shads like the white paddletails are working. Fish are being caught in the morning and the evening. Some people are catching double-digits, he said. Blackfish have moved out from the jetty with the falling temperatures, which means the inshore wrecks should be productive. "I'm looking forward to an awesome couple of months with coldwater fishing," he said. If the weather is good I think we'll be fishing into the New Year."
