Gabriel Tackle

April 23, 2018:
At Gabriel Tackle, Frank said things are picking up significantly. Lots of folks are headed up to Raritan Bay, of course, but there is still action nearby. The Mantoloking Bridge is still giving up both winter flounder and short stripers, both of which are hitting bloodworms and sandworms. A few folks have been fishing the Point Pleasant Canal with green crabs, but that fishing has been so-so. On the beach, there are some short bass and a few keepers being caught. Small plastics and artificials are working for those fish. He has a seminar at the shop on April 28; check in with him for details.

    At Gabriel Tackle, Frank said that while a lot of guys were headed up to the Raritan Bay, those who have put their time in around the Mantoloking Bridge are getting nice keeper winter flounder, and finding themselves busy with small stripers as well. The winter flounder are taking bloodworms and the stripers will grab them as well. He said they will be having a Century rod demonstration in the shop next weekend, so stop by to see it.

    At Gabriel Tackle, Frank said it's been quiet. Still a lot of short stripers and winter flounder around. You have to chum heavily but the flounder will bite and there are some nice fish to be caught.

    At Gabriel Tackle, Frank said it's been slow so far. There are stripers in the back bays and in the rivers and small baits, soft plastics and worms are the ticket. He's waiting for the weather to warm up and will be hosting some more seminars in the meantime.
