NJ/DE Bay Region Fishing Forecast – April 25, 2024

While often called the pink moon, April’s full moon this past Tuesday the 23rd is also referred to as the fish moon; in fact the New Jersey, Delaware region’s native Lenni Lenape people called it a shad moon (shawanamekwee) for the return of that anadromous Delaware River target.  But in this week’s video fishing forecast, it’s not just the shad, but now the bluefish invasion may be underway and the first trophy bluefin of the ’24 season – all 718 pounds of her – was brought into port in New Jersey this past weekend.  Take a tour of Fairfield Fishing Tackle in Essex County and do a deep dive into the May edition of The Fisherman Magazine.  We’ve got the final days of spring blackfish at the Jersey Shore with Open Tips to help you score before the final bell sounds in April.  Just nine days to go before fluke season at the Jersey Shore, plus the latest on striped bass, weakfish, black drum and our weekly update from the Pocono Mountains.
