Increase In NJ Tog Bag Coming, While Stripers, Specks & Reds Are Here
On Monday, New Jersey’s tautog bag will increase to five fish at 15 inches; expect a sales surge in greenies and crab jigs as quite a few charters and headboats turn their attention to the wrecks and reefs in search of big whitechins. Those looking to cash in on the tautog bite or the offshore black sea bass action can find boats sailing all along the Jersey Shore this fall in our North Jersey, Central Jersey and South Jersey reports at TheFisherman.com (look for the “Book Your Trip” feature to get dialed in!) In Monmouth and Northern Ocean county, surfcasters continue to bide their time waiting for the blitzes to unfold as boaters chase down monster stripers on the troll, jig, plug and by livelining. Meanwhile beach reports are coming in from a few locations in Atlantic County that may prove that striped bass are catching us flat-footed in our waders waiting for reports. This week’s full video forecast also throws light on a few speckled trout and redfish reports in the south; could that action be set to catch fire in Cape May County? Leading off this week’s full New Jersey, Delaware Bay video forecast for the weekend ahead is the latest news on the tag from a 46-inch fish named Independence which continues to “ping” the Argos satellite somewhere along the untamed banks of Egg Island down below Fortescue. It’s Veteran’s Day week, a good time for fishing along the New Jersey and Delaware coast, and the perfect time to personally thank a veteran for their service to this great nation of ours!
