Default North Jersey Reports

Stripers are HOT in Keyport, NJ, bass from small schoolies to 40+ will be in shortly. No bunker schools yet, so your best bet is clams, chunkin' is also highly effecitive now. As of now the bass are still small, but occasionally you may hook up into a 25 pounder.

Default Sun never came out

Well I was out there with a few other brave souls. Right out from beach were the Freddy C, Patriot 2 and the Teal fishing for flounder. I was watching them a bit with the binoculars but I did not see anyone pulling anything up. A kayaker too!

Honestly, I am a bit mad with the weatherman. He claimed it would get to 49 in South Amboy, it never got above 43. With no sun to warm things up a bit, no shot. All I can say is, "The sun will come out tomorrow..."

I still had a nice time, then went over to the boat to get her ready. Only a week or two away.

Anyone have any luck?

Default 'bout time

Well, got my first fish of the season from Lawrence Harbor. It was a nice fat fish but I threw it back. There are lots of shorts being taken on clam. People are snagging some bunker and I think the bunker bite is here and if you can get hold of a fresh one or "super fast frozen" bunker you can probably get some bigger fish.

All the spots mentioned above were mobbed this weekend. The Union Beach lot was so crowded people were parking blocks away :roll: There was an entertaining fight over noise and garbage between a homeowner and fisherman at Cliffwood - I'm siding with the homeowner on this one, unbelievable the bunch of slobs that are fishing around there.

I found my own spot and caught some fish.

Default Where to Launch

You can launch from Sayerville for free before memorial day and after labor day. It is only a short ride to the bay. The ramp in next to a big factory just west of Morgan Creek. That is where I put in and pull out every year.

Hey Swabbie, if you don't mind, what street is that ramp on, the one you spoke of, near Morgan Creek?

Default Bass and Blues all over.

Bass and Blues all over.

Published in the Asbury Park Press 05/11/05

Striped bass and bluefish have been both dependable and abundant this week.
Most charter and party boat captains who target bass and blues have chalked up consistently good scores every day that they have been out, and they can almost guarantee their clients they will have action.
Capt. Hank Leonard, owner of the Golden Eagle, Belmar, said he is so impressed with the spread of fish that he will step up the pace on Friday.
"We'll be sailing every night and every day, 7:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.," he said. "There are acres of blues out there. They're high in the water, but there are plenty of them, and there are a lot of striped bass."
Capt. Phil Sciortino Jr., Tackle Box Sportfishing, Highlands, said his charters have been into stripers regularly.
Tom Fornicola and party, Long Branch, were out Monday, and caught 15 stripers with 10 of the fish going over 20 pounds. The heaviest was a 27 1/2-pounder.
Brian Murray and party, East Rutherford, were out Tuesday, and caught 25 bass weighing up to 36 1/2 pounds. All were taken on bunkers in Raritan Bay.
Capt. Rob Semkewyc, Sea Hunter, Atlantic Highlands, said the bay fishing for bass has been principally a bait proposition, but he got into some good fishing on artificials.
"I was heading out, and there were birds and white water," he said. "My first thought was blues (and) I told the guys to put on the jigs ? Ava 27s and 47s ? and we will see what they are.
"The jigs hit the water and everyone was hooked up and there were bass ? fish between 28 and 32 inches ? nothing over 34 inches," he said. "The bass were feeding on small herring, and everyone went home with a slot fish and threw back plenty of others. So be ready with those jigs."
Capt. Howard Bogan Jr., Jamaica, Brielle, likes what he sees along the beach.
"We're in dry dock until May 13, but we will sail for striped bass and bluefish Saturday, May 14," he said. "Fishing has been excellent, and last year some of the best fishing was at this time of the year for stripers mixed with blues."
Bill Fisher Jr. of the Casino Fishing Pier in Seaside Heights said there have been times in the last few days when the blues were so thick around the pier that they were being caught on every cast.
"As soon as the water was fishable after the storm ? bang ? blues. All the fish were caught on mullet or mackerel strips," he said.
Bob Matthews of Capt. Bill's Bait and Tackle, Neptune, said the fluke fishery got off to a slow start in Shark River Saturday with the bad weather hampering the beginning, but some fish have been caught since.
John Tucker, Howell, brought the first keeper fluke of the season into Capt. Bill's. It was a 3 1/2-pounder caught on spearing. He had a couple of small throwbacks as well.
Tom Clayton, Wall, stopped at Capt. Bill's with a 12-pound, 12-ounce striped bass caught on a shad lure in the Manasquan River. Matthews had a 13-pound, 9-ounce bass and a 15 1/2-pound bass on a shad lure and a Tsunami lure.
Charles Triolo of Bradley Beach stopped at Scott's Bait and Tackle, Bradley Beach, with a 4 1/2-pound bluefish he caught on clams at Ocean Grove. Juan Ruvalcada of Spring Lake Heights caught a 14.4-pound striper on clams at Belmar.
