FISHING LOGS: New Jersey & Delaware Bay
Northern New Jersey & Hudson River

“My good friend and former NJ state Assemblyman Guy Tallerico sent me this grin and grab of him with a bass this week as the UK aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth left port,” said Greg Miller at Raritan Marina. Tallerico runs a 28 Carolina Classic out of Liberty Landing Marina called “Jersea Patriot”.
The broken record of weather woes continued along the northern coast this past week. This time it was the easterly winds that pounded the coast until they switched around to the west over the weekend. Most boat shops and boat captains I spoke with over the weekend told me there are plenty of fish around, then qualified that statement with those dreaded five words - “When You Can Get Out.” Bottom fishing as been off the charts when boats have had favorable condition with sea bass, tog, porgies, triggerfish and blowfish supplying the action: when you can get out. Likewise albacore, bonito and blues are providing some fast action in numerous places: when you can get out. Some bigger striped bass have started to show up in the bay and outside and most people believe this week’s full moon will usher in the heart of the fall striper run. So let’s pray that Mother Nature behaves herself this week so fishermen can get out!
