A relatively slow Fall thus far in my neck of the woods. There's been some pop-up bites, but all-in-all the fishing is pretty slow. Montauk, as usual, has had some good action, but much of the south shore of LI is off. Then again, we haven't seen the sand eels anywhere near the same level as the past couple years. The upside to this, is that many of the traditional (non-sand eel) bites in the bay are starting to shape up again.

The Herring is in now I heard some good news that theres fish on them.

These were caught in the bay and I found the most interresting stomach contends in them...





Usually theres just mush in there bellies I always thought they ate real small stuff like plankton or tiny things?? You learn something new everyday

Yeah, Jersey sounds like what we had last year on the south shore. We just got some fish hitting the beaches now, and some have filtered into the bays, in mostly near inlet locations. We'll see how long they stick around.

Other than this shot of action, it's been a horrible fall in these parts LOL.

Sand eel bite off Jersey is epic!
It's like Robert Moses on Steroids;
because the beach has great structure I.E. points, troughs, holes & a series of Bars.
Some troughs are so deep at low tide you still have to swim across them.
Super strike needle fish & Ava jigs are lethal.
It's not uncommon to land 12 fish in 90 minutes.
Plus Jersey lets you keep 2 bass over 28".
The people are very nice too.

Glad you got in on it Adam.

The SS of LI has been warming up as of late also. I think it'll be short lived, but a few Thanksgiving bass would be a good thing.

Default A November to remember

Last time this part of jersey had a sand eel phenomenon so thick was November of 1985!
B & T shops are saying this next week might totally eclipse that Record breaking Bass Run of 26 years ago!
Only MTK in 08 has shown me better bassing!
Happy Holidays!

What a difference a state makes, huh LOL.

If nothing else, this phenomenom should illustrate how important bait is to the finding of fish. Sand eels on LI SS last year, Jersey this year.
