NJ/DE Bay Video Fishing Forecast for Oct. 14-17

Got bait? Plenty of it around right now, in front of and behind the beaches at the Jersey Shore. With the right weather conditions and some cooling waters, things should get hot and heavy soon enough in terms of the 2021 fall striper run. We kick off the weekly forecast on location at the Reel Seat in Brielle with a look at weather conditions for the weekend ahead, with a rundown on the first week of sea bass action in the Garden State, a report on the freshwater action with George "The Pocono Outdoors Guy" followed by updates on blackfish and bluefin tuna with a quick look at the offshore forecast for the weekend ahead. When will the striped bass arrive? As reported over at The Fisherman’s Facebook page on Thursday morning, October 14, the first 40-inchers have shown up in a sharpie’s hands off Monmouth County. Could this be THE weekend?
