Chestnut Neck Boat Yard

November 12, 2018:
Chestnut Neck Boat Yard tells of a very tough week around the area as anglers had to deal with some super rough weather conditions. However, there were a few that got out back and kept busy and out of the elements by wrangling some schoolies. Local anglers were drifting eels or spot for a good bite, and Violet tells of a choice few that are happy loading up with perch as they await some bigger bass. Vi also had a few reports coming from out front of Atlantic City, with a few nice bass caught on the troll. Those reports have been sporadic at best, but Violet says, "better days are coming." Leon Cassel of Mays Landing did check in on Sunday with a 48.5-pound bass taken off the Red Tower off LBI.

    The crew at Chestnut Neck Boat Yard told of good action in the back, with anglers drifting the river with eels and catching some bass from 20 to 30 inches. Some anglers are drifting bloodworms, with sweet catches of nice-sized perch to add to their bounties. Some anglers are catching some blackfish over by the fish factory, but the action is spotty, with good days and bad. Green crabs have been the bait of choice.

    Chestnut Neck Boat Yard tells of a windy week, but anglers were toughing it out back in the river where weather was at least fishable; there were lots of schoolie bass responding to eels in the back, and those donning bloodworms had a blast with the scores of perch hanging around. The coming week looks a little better, and violet thinks that the bass fishing will satisfy.

    Chestnut Neck Boat Yard reported a good week as anglers frequenting the shop have all but put other fishing aside to head back in the river to drift eels; there has been some solid action out back and though a lot of fish are schoolies, more keepers have been found each day as angler participation increases. The shop has plenty of eels and some plastics for those who prefer casting.

    Chestnut Neck Boat Yard tells of a good week of bass fishing in the river as the cool snap seemed to turn the liners on; there were several keeps weighed in in recent days, and Violet tells of a good bite by those anglers tossing eels. The river has also seen another good week on perch fishing, and the shop has frozen shedders and bloodworms for anyone hunting silvers. The bay had a great run of blowfish in recent weeks as anglers kept all they wanted, but the action has slowed a bit as the toads move out. Little blues are taking their fair share of baits but have been small enough to not maul those eels meant for bass, so far.
