Get Ready – The Powder Keg May Get Lit!
It’s the final weekend in September, as New Jersey’s fluke season comes to an end while black sea bass reopens on Sunday, October 1. In this week’s video fishing forecast for the New Jersey, Delaware Bay region, we take a trip back in time to October 7, 2022. That’s the day that winds began laying down after back-to-back nor’easters, and by October 8 the bull rush of cow stripers was underway at the Jersey Shore. Now that Lee and Ophelia have passed, can we expect that powder keg to blow once again? Spend a few minutes with our October print edition of The Fisherman going over plug and lure selection for the fall, then see about applying those tactics to the weekend beaches. There are still sheepshead around, redfish too in and around Cape May; plus we have our weekly freshwater report with the Pocono Outdoors Guy and more of our interview with Borough of Seaside Park mayor John Peterson, Jr. who is apparently one of the many local elected officials at the Jersey Shore placed on the “strictly need to know” basis by the governor and his army of bureaucrats.
