We spoke with Akira over at True World Tackle who told us he still got reports of bass being caught in New York Harbor however the number of anglers fishing has really started to taper or off especially during the middle of the week when the weather was at its worse. Blackfishing remained good with both pier and boat fisherman finding decent catches. The best fishing was at the Middle Grounds and Sandy Hook Reef, Fishing in the backwater areas of Raritan Bay was also good, but here too the number of anglers fishing was dropping fast as more marinas close for the season.

The word from Akira over at True World Tackle was continued good striped bass fishing in New York Harbor with bass still being caught in the East River. He said fishing pressure is slowly tapering off but even with the Thanksgiving Holiday there were still quite a few anglers fishing. Akira said he got decent reports from the backwaters and the bay and also heard of good action in the ocean as far south as Barnegat Inlet. Anglers fishing off piers along the lower Hudson River were also into some decent fishing with nixed size stripers and mixed size tog being caught. The shop also got reports of improved blackfishing along the inshore wrecks and some fair catches of sea bass, porgies, triggerfish and a few cod being taken on the deep water wrecks.
