Default North Jersey:

The Tackle Box in Hazlet (732-264-7711) says local anglers still catching some striped bass from boats using live eels?a few fish were caught from beaches with clams on Tuesday from Sandy Hook down to Monmouth Beach?poor weather forecast for today could dampen action until weekend?blackfishing has been slow due to rough seas, which have prevented most boats from getting out?water temperature is still in low 50s, which should keep bass in the area for a while?however, not a lot of baitfish in the area.

Brielle Region: Brielle Tackle (732-528-5720) Good striped bass action being reported by boats trolling from Bayhead to Seaside?use umbrella rigs and shad imitations?stripers up to 18 pounds, with plenty of bluefish mixed in, being found in 40-50 feet of water?local party boats reporting good catches of ling and blackfish on wrecks 90 feet down?some flounder action starting up by the hospital.

Default Winter Flounder

For anyone interested.....tried yesterday in Sandy Hook Bay....nothing to be found. Wandered up the rivers and located some nice large and fat flounder here and there. Had to chum heavy and fish were very picky. Managed 11 keepers, no shorts caught, 13 to 17 inch. Chummed with rice, corn, mussels and clams but only thing fish had inside them was the clams. Sand worms was the bait of choice. Also, they would only hit a moving bait, dead sticks produced nothing at all.

Winter flounder catches were generally poor over the weekend, but here and there some fish were caught.

Jean Bradford and Tony Wojciechowski, both of Rumson, brought a catch of 17 flounders into Julian's Bait and Tackle, Atlantic Highlands. Three of the fish were over 3 pounds. They fished the Leonardo Flats with sandworms.

Dennis Palmatier, Murphy's Hook House, Dover, said Bob McCrann, Toms River, was out Monday by himself, and caught 14 flounders in the Toms River. His heaviest fish weighed 2.65 pounds

Stripers are still being caught on clams at Lavalette, Ortley Beach, Seaside heights and Island Beach State park. White 6 inch storm shad is the hot lure.

Winter flounder season is set to open in New York on March 19 the third Saturday of March
The regulations for this upcoming season should stay the same, a daily limit of 15 fish measuring at least 11 inches from March 19 to June 30. There's also a fall season for flounder from Sept. 15 to Oct. 30 that could be influenced by any new regulations, but very few anglers participate in that season. The spring is when flounder season is most needed, a sort of spring training for the fishing year ahead.

bloodworms are very good,as are sandworms,clams,grass shrimp and bits of nightcrawlers dipped in Iodine(works good for smelt too)

I find a small chumpot loaded with crushed mussels and catfood to bring the flounder close to the boat.
