Bass fishing picked up a little bit this week according to the folks at Hook House in Toms River as customer Dave O managed to score six bass with one in the slot keeper range, along with a few smaller bluefish at IBSP. That action was mostly on clams and chunks.

Rich at Hook House Bait & Tackle said overall surf fishing has not been great. Folks are getting some bass with some blues in the mix. They are selling fresh bunker and clams and have a lot in stock. Sea bass fishing off the boats has been really good. Folks are trolling a few stripers up north near Sandy Hook and Shrewsbury Rocks. In the bay, small bass are hitting bloodworms. SP Minnows are also working, specifically the ghost color. A few small blues are helping to give action as well. Crabbing is getting better each day.

Right before the blow a few bass were gobbling up clams according to the Hook House in Toms River. IBSP was shut down late over the weekend due to a flood tide, but should be accessible all week long again, hopefully for a rebound bite with striped bass.

We got several reports from Dennis over at the Hook House Bait and Tackle in Toms River. Dennis told me the store got several reports of trout fishing in Lake Shenandoah and Spring Lake where Powerbait has been the ticket to the trout. Bass fishing has been good on live shiners in Lake Rivera and other local ponds. Trilco is also producing some perch and catfish while the Ocean County Community College Pond is giving up bluegills and bass.

John at Hook House Bait & Tackle & Go Fish Bait and Tackle said there are stripers off the beach eyeing up clam and bunker. Big blues are also testing the limits on some angler’s rods off the surf. They are also looking for bunker. Fluke fishing remains decent in the bay. At night, use some bloodworms to try for some striper. Crabbing is picking up. There are some perch in the river.
