Riptide Bait & Tackle

January 15, 2018:
"Have not heard much in the fishing world and soon the fisherman flea markets will be starting up and they will keep anglers busy through the winter season," said Andy at Riptide Bait and Tackle. While the shop reopens for the season on March 1, Andy said he's at the shop nearly every day should you need something.

    Fred at Riptide Bait and Tackle reported that the bass fishing out front is still hanging in solid and just before Christmas Chad and Tyler reported that they had slammed some nice liners out in front of Brigantine. All onboard had limits and they boated somewhere in the neighborhood of 35 bass, keeping some for the table. Capt. Andy is now closed for the year and thanks all his loyal customers for another great year, saying, "we left em' biting." The shop will re-open again in April.

    Capt. Andy at Riptide Bait and Tackle reported that the Brigantine beaches proved fish are still out front. Sometimes they are right out in front of Brigantine, sometimes you have to travel slightly North or South. "We've seen huge schools one after another, but not a lot of overs, most in the 35- to 40-inch range," Andy said. There's nonstop action out there with mojos. No reports of fish being caught on the beach.

Store hours moving forward are 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. through the end of the year, and Andy said they've got some great end of year clearance deals going on now including 25% off all mojos, just what you need today for a striper tomorrow!

    Capt. Andy at Riptide Bait and Tackle reported that the Brigantine beaches saw virtually no action except one customer named John who had a bass off the jetties – the first in a couple of weeks. Andy said the boats are scoring big and it's been Mojo Mania with boats trolling mojos and picking up bass from 30 pounds to the 48-pounder he weighed-in at the show. The decent weather has boaters and fishermen coming out from all areas and participation is high.
