DRAGGING WIRE

DRAGGING WIRE
According to Phil at the Tackle Box in Hazlet, the Maja #4 was the spoon to pull last week for good stripers along North Jersey waters.
The 2018 pattern of good weather and fishing early in the week and the wrath of Nature on the weekends reappeared along the northern coast this past week. The combination of the backside of the full moon and the nor’easter ko’ed the weekend fishing and produced a lot of flooding along the North Jersey coast. Most party and charter boat captains and tackle shop owners were left reeling from another wasted weekend. During the week bottom fishing was some of the best of the season with jumbo porgies, short and keeper sea bass, one fish limits of tog and triggerfish bending rods. False albacore, bonito and bluefish were also in very good supply and striped bass fishing was on the upsurge. Then, as most people put it, came the rains and winds of a fall nor’easter. It remains to be seen how the fishing will bounce back this week, and most are hoping the storm and the northeast winds will push some decent amounts of stripers inshore with in the 3-mile limit.
