Captain Bill's Landing

November 13, 2017:
At Capt. Bill's Landing the word was simple: "The bass are here!" Spoon Fed Spoons, 9er Shads and Mojos are doing the trick and the fishing has been hot. Sea bass and blackfish are still plentiful on the offshore spots. They have eels, clams, green crabs and all of your trolling needs.

    "All we need is the wind to stop," they said at Capt. Bill's Landing. The stripers are still to the north, with those fishing from Asbury Park to Sandy Hook catching some decent fish, but the majority of the body of fish has yet to move in. There is still good striper fishing in the Manasquan River on those resident fish. Sea bass fishing has been excellent, they said.

    At Capt. Bill's Landing, things were quiet at the shop when I called because of the weather. They have been scouring the area to get clams, which have been in short supply for most shops. They have bluefish chum for those who want to do some late-season sharking. Vinny Fiore with Guy and Danny Maldari landed a 200-pound mako on one trip.

    At Capt. Bill's Landing, the word is of acres of bunker just outside the Manasquan Inlet and there are striped bass hanging out right below them. Jerry stopped in with a striper to put on the scales on Sunday. They bass have been hitting Spoon Fed bunker spoons, mojos and 9er Umbrella Rigs, they said. Stripers in the Point Pleasant Canal and in the Manasquan River are eating eels. They were talking about the false albacore that were thick outside the inlet; there were some bonito mixed in. The fish are hitting small Ava jigs and Deadly Dicks. Folks who went out for sea bass on Sunday were rewarded with plenty of fish in the cooler. They have heard good things on the shark fishing at the Mud Hole; Capt. John Kizman of the Suki and Norma K boys Chris Rutledge and Adam Daudier landed a nice 158-pound thresher and had several makos browsing their slick.

    At Capt. Bill's Landing, they are hearing about tuna in the Hudson Canyon. It's still a little slow but it's improving, he said. The night swordfish bite is very good, however. On the inshore grounds, shark fishing has been really good, with both makos and threshers being caught. Those interested in blackfish, triggerfish and porgies are doing very well at the local reefs and rockpiles. The blackfish jigs have been very productive and Bill said they are fully stocked on them.
