The Berkeley Striper Club tagged over 200 fish last week which is phenomenal. Christmas is almost here! If you're looking for a gift for that special angler in your life they have it! Gift Cards are available as well (Fisherman are picky!). They are open normal hours till Christmas.

Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle said Sean Smida has been into a lot of short bass on plugs and bucktails. It is a first light bite and right before dark on small plugs and metal. They got the last delivery of fresh clams in for the season. If you're looking to shuck a few dozen and salt them for the winter come get them. They will continue to be on our normal hours until after Christmas.

"A pick of schoolie-size bass along the beaches, and there have been a few keepers taken," reports Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle. Late afternoon into the early evening hour seems to be the prime time frame, and the stripers are inhaling fresh clam and swiping at SP Minnow plugs. "With sand eels showing, try an AVA with a teaser," advises Da Grump.

Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle said getting bait was difficult with all this wind, but anglers had a steady pick of bass on the Island while plugging, with most fish just under legal length. A few keepers were in the mix though.
