September 22 Video Fishing Forecast for New Jersey, Delaware Bay

Join us this Friday, Saturday and Sunday here at ShoreTown Ballpark on Stadium Way in Lakewood for the Jersey Shore Boat Sale and Expo presented by the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey. We’re out at the show for set-up where more than 200 boats are on display, with this week’s digital weekly edition headlines for the New Jersey, Delaware Bay region including an 11.8-pound fluke tops in North Jersey, albies popping up in Central Jersey and both red & black drum in South Jersey. There are plenty of options for action as we enter the first official days of fall, with the freshwater scene opening up more in the Pocono’s, and our offshore bite at the Jersey Shore held back only by a glancing blow by Fiona this week.
