New Jersey & Delaware Bay Video Fishing Forecast November 30, 2023

NJ Stripers – Madness, Mayhem & Management Meetings As of this very morning, the final day of November, there are still striped bass racing through the Ocean and Monmouth County surf with reckless abandon, while jumbos are on the prowl just inside the line down into Atlantic and Cape May County taking live baits, mojos, jigs and umbrella rigs. In this week's video fishing forecast for the New Jersey, Delaware Bay region we're at the annual tackle dealer show in Atlantic City after spending Tuesday in the Ocean County surf with friends from the American Sportfishing Association. On Tuesday, December 5, the state of New Jersey will host an in-person striped bass management discussion Manahawkin with the ASMFC to discuss future regulatory changes to the fishery. In this week’s full video fishing forecast, learn why your opinion on striped bass management is so important when you consider how loud and abrasive some voices have become. Blitzing stripers, blackfish, sea bass, management discussion, mysterious tar balls and a few holiday gift ideas from Atlantic City, all in this week’s full video fishing forecast.
