Lacey Marine

November 13, 2017:
At Lacey Marine, they had reports of striped bass caught in Barnegat Bay and off Seaside. Ed Plichta picked up a 42-pounder on Sunday off Ortley Beach, and the fishing was excellent on Saturday as well, though he was catching a lot more schoolies then. Michael Chrebet stopped in with a pair of stripers in the teens.

    At Lacey Marine, Dan said there was not much to report due to the terrible weather over the weekend but those who got out at first light last week were rewarded with striped bass, he said. Trolling white and chartreuse bunker spoons are how most of the fish were caught, he said. Inside, drifting eels at night along the sod banks and Oyster Creek Channel has been producing bass up to 20 pounds. Sea bass fishing has been okay and blackfish, triggerfish, and porgies are mixed in on the inshore wrecks and at the Tires and the Garden State North reef. Blues are still in the Barnegat Bay near Oyster Creek and hitting bunker chunks and mullet from the Route 9 Bridge.

    At Lacey Marine, they have been struggling to get bait like everyone else and have been posting updates when they have fresh deliveries. The stripers have been hit and miss, with trolling bunker spoons seeming to be your best bet. If you're thinking it's time to winterize, they have the supplies you need. Stop in and they can help you get set.

    At Lacey Marine, Dan said a few stripers have arrived both north and south of Barnegat Inlet. White Maja bunker spoons and snag-and-drop took the few bass that were caught. In the bay there have been a few bass caught at night on eels and spot during the day and plenty of schoolie bass hitting swim shads and white zoom paddle tails. Blues are in the inlet and Oyster Creek, and are nailing bunker chunks and mullet. Albies seemed to be everywhere last week and hitting Deadly Dicks and other small metals and teasers mimicking rainfish. "We have some awesome rainfish and sand eel teasers from Old Barney teasers that have been working very well on albies," he said. Blackfishing has been decent along the jetties on green crabs as well.

    At Lacey Marine, Dan said there are some blowfish still around near the Research & 42 Buoys in 5 to 6 feet of water. Chum heavily and move around until you find them. Bigger blues are hitting mullet and bunker chunks in Oyster Creek and just outside the mouth into Barnegat Bay. Blackfish and triggers are nailing green crabs and clams along the inlet rocks and there were even some triggerfish hanging under the BB and BI Buoys in the bay.
