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

Long-time Fisherman subscriber Chris Karvelas was out last Wednesday night fishing the new moon in Northern Monmouth using a 9-inch Megashad on an S&S jighead when he got slammed by this monster striper. “Everything went smooth after an amazing fight and I landed the fish clean,” Chris said, adding “ently weighed her on my Boga to realize she was 54 pounds I quickly got into the water with her and revived and released her to see another day and reproduce into our fishery. It was a very special night and I beat my personal best by a long shot.” Chris blackened the background to protect the spot. “I value our surfcasting community dearly and would prefer not to say exactly where I caught it,” he said.
The number one story along the northern coast has to be the big stripers that have made their way into northern waters. Pods of stripers are making their way down the coast along the ocean front. We had several 50-plus pound bass weighed in this week along with 40- and 30-pound linesiders. The bulk of the big bass are being taken on live bunker and by trolling spoons, shads and plugs. On the bottom fishing front while porgy fishing has thinned out, sea bass fishing has remained very good and most anglers are catching their one fish tog limit, which will go up to five fish this coming Friday. Last but not least winter flounder fishing in Shark River has been very good and some flatties are starting to show up in the Manasquan River as well.
