If “West” Is Best, Then the Best of NJ’s Striper Run is Here!
First reports of speckled trout this week at Atlantic City, and the NJ tautog bag increases to five fish – but the big story is what many are calling one of the best fall striper runs in recent memory. The opening few minutes of this week’s video fishing forecast for the New Jersey, Delaware Bay edition features video from the North Jersey beaches in recent days with occasional Nat Geo conditions in effect during offshore winds. So, is west the best in terms of wind? It has been, and we should learn if that continues this weekend as another five days of westerlies could find bunker nosing up tight to the beach with bass blitzing on their tails. More on the striper run and the weekend ahead, with local tournament news, headboat options with tautog, sea bass and porgies, learning how to target spotted sea trout and our weekly freshwater report from the Poconos.
