Default Has anyone had a striper bite in the A.C south jersey area

I was wondering if anyone has had any luck in the atlantic city-cape may area yet. I have been waiting for the water temp to come up alittle more but I think I start alittle early this year and see what kind of bite there is. You can't catch em if you don't wet a line. If anyone has had a bite some info would be really helpful. Spring has sprung lets catch-em up!!!!!!!

Hi Smitty.



Heard from a few guys who tried AC on the weekend without a bite. Albeit daytime reports. Some of the boat guys had reports but none from shore. Very very soon.

Default striper bite in AC area

Thanks for the info mike. yes I have heard of stone harbor. I grew up in cape may and I used to dock my boat at breezy leez marina. Im glad to hear that the shorts are around. That means the cows are on the way. I would rather catch some shorts right now then nothing at all. Do you have any idea if they were caught on artificial bait, plugs, or fresh bait. were they in the surf or the back bays. I am going to try some of both starting tommorrow and see what happens. I have been looking around for some schools of bait fish but haven't seen much yet. I guess the water needs to rise a few more degrees. This web site is great. atol of info that is real easy to find. I will post back later and let yall know how I did. Remember you can't catchem unless you wet a line. PS JIMMIE JOHNSON RULES!!!! Thanks for the info. :twisted: :P

Smitty...the way its lookin' up here, I would try dams and Power Plant outflows...the ticket in Bosotn right now seems to be slim profile soft plastics, like Slug-o's or small plastic swim shad....fished mostly off the bottom...

Hope that helps... :)

Good Luck~

Thanks Mike. I am going to go try e few spots this afternoon. I will probably try bloodworms if I can find any that are worth spending the money on. Last year they were all so small They worn't worth the money. I will probably give the clam beds at corsons inlet a try. I will let you know how I do if I make it out.

Default THE BITE IS ON IN CAPE MAY

WOW what a day. I headed down to my favorite jetty at cape may point. Stopped and got some fresh surf clam. I am not a big fan of fish finder rigs so I rigged up my 3oz torpedo with swivels and my favorite gomagatsu hook and my first cast within 5 minutes I had a 32in bass. I was estatic. Threw on a nother clam and second cast a 28 inch bass. two keppers right off the bat. All and all I had 4 keeper bass and 3 shorts, and 3 runnoffs. What a day and the water temp is still only 42.5 degrees. Fresh surf clam is the ticket and it was cheap right now. Can't wait till the temp hits around 50 then it will really be on. I did't really see any bait fish in the water either but there was still a great bite today. I will be back out again sunday. :D :D :twisted: :twisted:

Thanks guys. I am going to try again sunday afternoon if the weather isn't to bad. The jettys I fish are not very high out of the water and I have been going alone and there hasn't been anyone else out. I fish hard but you still need to be safe. I was real surpised at the size of the fish that were around already. Usaully this early with the temp still low it is all shorts but they were some really nice cows with alot of girth. I forgot my shimano scale so I am not sure of the weight but they were some nice fish. I hope the bite is still on tommorrow. By the way I swithched to power pro jast year and all I can say is WOW!!!. I love it. I will never fish mono again. The bite was really suttle so I had to set the bait runner really lite and let them take it for awile but even with the bait runner set you still feel every bump plus it cuts through the water so much better then mono. I'll let you guy know how I do if I make it out sunday I don't want to miss the bristol race. The bite is on so hookem up and hook em good. :D :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
