October 25, 2016:
Word from Grumpy's Bait & Tackle is that the bass fishing is improving by the day along the beaches and out front, as weigh-ins are on the increase. Dan Darter and Dave John plugged the night shift and pulled in 10.45-pound and 13.5-pound linesiders respectively. Allen Whurpel soaked bait to beat a14.5-pound bass, and Jerry Sedgewick clammed another measuring 29 inches. Phil Lagrossa used a bunker spoon to corral a 39.85-pound cow, and Zack Paone dragged one in that weighed 35.3 pounds.

    "Looks like the fall run is underway," opined Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle discussing the numbers of short bass being caught on clams, SP Minnows and mullet along area sands in addition to the 1- to 3-pound metal, menhaden and mullet-crazed bluefish that are showing in plague proportions. Dave Trimble plugged a 35-inch linesider, and mullet was the meal for stripers measuring 30 and 33 inches caught by RJR and Polish Al respectively.

    Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle said downsized metals poppers and plugs were catching cocktail blues along the area surf, as were mullet rigs and clams. There are a few weakfish and short bass in the mix. He'd heard about a few pods of albies blazing by, but no reports of any being beached.

    "Bluefish on mullet up and down the beach and small plugs are catching stripers in the bay," reported Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle, adding that the crabbing was still holding its own. Earlier in the week, Jimmy "Big Bass" Buonanno put in suds time and was reward with a 29-inch bass on a Big Don. The store is now a Guy Cotton dealer, and the Muccie Fat Boys have taken up residence.

    "Mullet means fish, and that's what's happening," explained Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle. The suds are really beginning to percolate, with the full boil countdown underway. The Tsunami XD Popper and the AOK and Hopkins metals have been bringing the meat home. Partick Vaccarino and Justin Carr sanded stripers of 31 and 29 inches respectively. The blues are really starting to play, and these are ranging from 3 to 6 pounds.
