The bass fishing along the coast is on, and should only get better!
The 2022 fall run of stripers at the Jersey Shore kicked off in grand fashion on Saturday, October 8 as jumbo bass pushed bunker in tight to shore. The sustained madness continued for several days, with good fish reported from Sandy Hook to Atlantic City for those who were in the right place at the right time. While action ebbed and flowed for much of October (especially for surfcasters), we still received a ton of photos here at The Fisherman Magazine, as stripers of mixed sizes where reported out front and in the back waters, with the best of the fall action still to come.
Keep in mind that in recent years, some of the very best blitz fishing in our region doesn’t really occur until the Thanksgiving weekend hits, which is still another week away. Are we still sitting on a powder keg of striped bass action? Let’s hope!
