The word from Steve over at Julian?s Bait & Tackle was good striped bass fishing but spotty blackfishing. Steve told me very few anglers are tog fishing out of the Atlantic Highlands and most of the serious Blackfishermen are fishing on Belmar boats. When it comes to the striped bass fishing it?s just the opposite, just about all the boats fishing out of the Highlands are fishing for stripers, even with the good numbers of tog in the upper bay.

Striped bass continued to be the top story when I spoke with Jay over at Julian?s Bait & Tackle. He said it was another good week for striped bass fishing in Raritan Bay and in the ocean down from Sandy Hook. While the mid-week rains and winds cost us a few days there was a fair amount to anglers fishing in the morning on Thanksgiving Day. Most of the bass were taken on the toll over the weekend. Likewise the number of anglers fishing for tog is also increasing and some better reports started to come into the store over the weekend. Tog fishing also got good marks in the backwater areas but was slower in the ocean, Jay said.

One of the oldest bait and tackle shops in the entire country, Julian’s Bait and Tackle has been providing anglers with solid advice, sound equipment and the freshest of bait since 1932. Experts on striped bass fishing in the Sandy Hook region along the northern coast of New Jersey, the crew at Julian’s Bait and Tackle is an essential source of local intel and a popular stop for anglers fishing out of Highlands, Atlantic Highlands and all along the Monmouth County beaches (with plenty of room for those trailering boats to the grounds). Innovators in the striper spoon game, it’s Joe Julian who has carefully watched over the Montauk Striper brand of spoons from its earliest days of production Highlands to what it is today; when it comes to spoons, wire line, trolling rods and rod holders designed and manufactured by Julian's specifically for striped bass, no one else even comes close.
