New Reef Numbers, Record Breaking Tautog & Holdovers
Get another look at last week’s deployment at Little Egg Reef site off Beach Haven with a video exclusive from Jim Hutchinson, Jr. who pulls out the Navionics App to screen-grab new numbers for you to plug in for the future. Boats continue to sail along the Jersey Shore down the Delmarva Peninsula for tautog, and a new line class record was reported out of Central Jersey. White perch action out back is pretty solid right now, and with the relatively mild winter thus far it’s not much of a reach to think that there are plenty of stripers holding over in the brackish rivers throughout the region (striper bycatch becoming a more regular occurrence). As of January 21, we have just 39 days until striped bass season officially reopens along New Jersey’s back bays, rivers and creeks; are you up to speed and geared up for the new circle hook regulations in place for 2021? Get details on a live seminar from The Fisherman coming up to address the issue and help you prep for the spring run.
