NODC Water Temps

Water temps were around 42°
Guys were catching shorties yesterday.
And a 22 pounder was weighed in at The Dock outfitters in Barneget Bay,
pretty big for a resident fish.

Take heart northern brethren its 38.7 in Boston Hahba and 40.3 in
Newpport.

I got a report from a bud down in Ocean county - they had a good day, all rats but quite a few of them.

Rumors that there are already some schools of bunker around in Raritan bay. If that's true then this could be an early spring

The rain DOES suck, but I'd rather have it now and give the river and streams a chance to settle down before the stripers arrive.

The fish in ocean county was <edit - spotburn, too specific - that spot already has crowding issues ~ Sudsy> weighed in at three tackle shops. A lot of rats at same place.

I went saturday on the bayside within 15 minutes of grumpys, during the three hour rain break we had. Had a few bites on some gulp sandworms, but there wasn't much sun to warm up the water. Mike from Grumpys was sayin some of the locals have been pullin in keepers on plugs, hard to believe and then a guy walked in with one. I was surprised.
I think I'm going down st pattys day.

i don't get all hyped up hearing fish caught. bunker always come early and the big fish mosey up to find em. if they don't find the bunker they go to thier usual haunts for some clams and mussels on the beds. i get a good stormy afternoon and fly down to my spots. usually wait till the crokus bloom before venturing out. seems the moon cycle gives me my best shot at fish. i have spent way too many days and nights on the water for not and every year for the past 3 years i am right about the time. let some googins go out and put the time in for me and if i hear or see a fish has come up earlier than predicted (which is not the case last couple years) fine,
