?We had some good striped bass fishing and had mixed results with the blackfish,? said Capt. Joe Paton of Nearfall Fishing Charters. Joe said the striped bass action continues to be unbelievable with mixed size bass giving late season anglers plenty of action. Some days have been very good while other days you have to put in a lot of work to get some fish. Joe told me he will continue to target the tog into January but will try for the stripers in the opportunity presents itself and the people are willing.

?We had to work for our blackfish this past week but most trips put keepers in the fish box,? said Capt. Joe Paton of Nearfall Fishing Charters. Joe told me he expects to see the tog fishing get better in December as water temps cool down and will be fishing for them into the New Year weather and fishermen permitting. He too has dates open.

During his time as a young captain, he trained under the direct tutelage of Captain Butch Egerter who has fished the Jersey Coast for over 50 years. Over the years, Joe has spent time running head boats and local charter boats. Capt.
