Giving Thanks for NJ’s Incredible Striper Run of ‘22
If you happened to miss out on the incredible run of fish in this Friday’s “Substitute Teachers Day Blitz of ‘22” at the Jersey Shore, the good news is that the fall run of stripers continues into this holiday weekend! In recent years Thanksgiving has been very much been the pinnacle of the fall striped bass run at the Jersey Shore; based on footage from recent blitz conditions with the surf line packed tight with bait, one can reasonably expect to find those bunker-busting scenes somewhere along the beaches this week as well. Check out a few of the most recent surf catches, and take a sneak peek at the weather forecast before deciding on which beach you may want to start your bass hunt this week. Plus, details on tautog, black sea bass, weekend tournaments and our weekly freshwater report from on location in the Pocono’s. Give thanks, and catch ‘em up!
Southern New Jersey Fishing Reports

Sea bass and tog fishing continue to be outstanding here in South Jersey from the artificial reefs to the deepwater wrecks. Weather windows do dictate runs offshore, but with the sea bass season in its last month, jump on the trips when you can. The same is true with tog trips; find some favorable winds in the forecast, call out of work if you have to and go. Also keep an eye on the striper reports coming from North and Central New Jersey, as all those fish have to come our way eventually. It's simply inconceivable that these fish will by-pass us outside the three-mile limit (again) or not show up until January (again) this season.
