Grumpy's Tackle

April 15, 2014:
"Short bass on salted and fresh clams up and down the beaches, and the back bay is busy with schoolies that are hitting plugs and plastics," reports Grumpy hisself from Grumpy's Bait & Tackle. The Mantoloking Bridge area is rife with fatso flounder, and that are putting the lips to bloodworms.

Previous Reports

April 8, 2014:
"The surf readings are still in the mid 40s. Get it up a few degrees, and that's should happen soon, and the bass action will pick up," observes Grumpy hisself from Grumpy's Bait & Tackle. So far, he's heard of short bass being picked off on fresh and salted clam, but so far the first keeper has yet to be measured. There are less than 10 days remaining in the Polar Bear Bass Tournament.

April 1, 2014:
"We've extended the Polar Bear Bass Tournament to 9 p.m. on Tuesday April 15," announced Grumpy hisself from Grumpy's Bait & Tackle, adding that the still cold surf conditions are making the capture of that first legal striper tougher than in years gone by.

March 25, 2014:
"We've been buried with boxes of new inventory and we're trying to dig our way out. A lot of stuff in here," groused Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle. With surf temperatures hovering at or dipping below 40 degrees, customer interest in stripers fishing has been nil, but their gearing up for the inevitable linesider arrival continues.

March 18, 2014:
Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle was pounding the keys of his computer in frustration as only Grump can do. "Mother Nature didn't get the memo about spring happening on Thursday," he groused. They have one of the new Accurate SR6 spinning reels on the way. More will be coming as they get production ramped up but he is not sure when. Delivery of that reel and a ton of other stuff should be happening mid week. Ray has been a busy boy, ordering anything and everything he sees. The Governors Cup Surf Fishing Tournament will be held on Sunday, May 18 this year! They have the registration forms in the store and you can save money by registering early!
