Another person that told us that business is starting to shift from tackle being used to Christmas presents was Nick over at Bullet Hole Annex. He said the mid-week cold spell had anglers scrambling for some more up to date winter clothing. One place there has been some very good fishing was off the beaches in the middle of the state. Nick said he got reports of big bass, keepers and shorts being caught in the suds most of the week. We also heard of a new body of bass moving into Raritan Bay late in the week. On the blackfishing front most of the better fishing is still in the backwater areas, however the recent cold snap seems to have put some life in the mid-range wrecks, he said.

I checked with Nick over at Bullet Hole Annex and he also told us of the decent pike fishing in the upper Passaic River and of some good numbers of mixed size stripers being caught in the lower tidal Passaic River. He also mentioned that walleye fishing was good in several waters including Greenwood Lake, Monksville Reservoir, Swartswood Lake and Lake Hopatcong. Most of the fishing was on live bait and Rapala Ice Fishing Jigs. Here too the word was continued good fishing for steelheads and brown trout in the Lake Ontario tributary streams in New York.

Walleye and trout were the top two when we spoke to Nick over at Bullet Hole Annex. The top two walleye spots were Monksville and Greenwood with Rapala ice fishing jigs scoring well. He too spoke well of the trout fishing in the fall stocked trout streams and said most of the rainbows were taking salmon eggs, Powerbait and spinners. Lastly he also mentioned continued good steelhead and brown trout fishing in the Lake Ontario tributary streams.

I checked with Nick over at Bullet Hole Annex and he said quite a few anglers took advantage of the long holiday weekend to get in some last trips for stripers and then packed their boats up for the coming winter. He also mentioned a fair amount of anglers fishing the beaches for the stripers and finding some decent fishing with a few big bluefish being caught as well as far south as Long Beach Island. On the blackfishing front he told us reports were better this past week than right after the bag limit went up the previous week.
