Online tackle shop real time reports.

First fish weighed in at Capt Daves shop
March 2, 2011 = Nick Nastasi brought an 18.2 pound whopper into the store about 10:30 (3/1/2011) that he caught in the Waretown area before dawn. 2 more keepers on the second and 3rd where brought in. The second on a black sluggo.
The reports from the rivers is that there are already a good number of willing shorts so it is only a mater of time before some of the bigger fish get hungry.

The first keeper striper was recorded today at The Tackle Box in Hazlet as Dennis Galvez of East Brunswick used worms at Cliffwood Beach to land an 11-pounder.
Capt.Chris De Stefano of Wall was watching in Belmar as the Ocean Explorer unloaded the biggest cod catch I've heard of from local waters. Capt. Bobby Quinn told him that over 500 school cod were caught, with the largest at about 25 pounds. Furthermore, those cod were caught on open bottom where whales were feeding on both small herring and sand eels.

The beaches are still empty! It seems as if everybody is waiting for somebody else to get that first Bass! There are plenty of rumors of fish caught but there is no proof such as bodies. Judging from the number of phone calls asking how the fishing is, there is much more interest than there is participation.
Here is the weather idiots version of reality - Mostly cloudy and breezy. Highs in the mid 40s. East winds 15 to 20 mph.
Mike is still pacing the floor, impatiently waiting for the Seeker rod blank order to show up. Needless to say, he has been a pain in the neck (if not a bit lower on the anatomy).

The next batches of clam and bloodworms are due tomorrow. We do not have a specific time, it could be anytime after 11 a.m.
It's been exciting the past couple of days to see some anglers through the store anticipating the fishing to break loose anytime now. It's good to see the smiles and hope again. It is so much nicer talking about fish then growling about politics and the price of gas.
Word is that there was a peak water temperature at 46 degrees earlier this week. One lone angler had FOUR SHORT BASS up to 26 inches at Graveling Point during the low tide event of Sunday afternoon. Mullica River activity up at Hay Road is producing bass to 26 inches as well with a good showing of White Perch up to a pound and a half. Little by little the fish catching activity is picking up.

Really didn't hear much today action-wise other than the keeper. There was also a keeper caught this morning up in the Mullica River by a boater.

Re: Tracking the bass up the coast 2011

Brinkmans report
Friday March 18, 2011

I headed out with bloodworms and herring and fished 5 or 6 of my favorite spots. In 4 hours I did not have one single hit. Now the river conditions were not all that great. I was out at the top of high tide and the river was muddy but so full of debris that fishing was almost impossible. That lasted till mid tide then the river got much better. But still no fish. Now in this area they did catch a 31 inch fish up off Station Avenue with a few smaller fish. Down at the Tacony a customer picked up two 27 inch fish with a couple catfish. And further down river at Penn Treaty they picked up a couple fish 15 to 18 inches. So far that is all the stripers that I have heard of. Further down river Paul has been fishing every afternoon with bloodworms only to catch several catfish and eels. He said this is the earliest he has seen eels in the river since he started fishing. The Salem Canal has still been really good for stripers 20 to 29 inches.

On Wednesday afternoon, there was a little flurry of short stripers right around the time of low tide. I did not have and feedback or weighins this afternoon which pretty much speaks for itself. Sixty degrees today and temperatures in the seventies tomorrow will help water temperatures and I would not be at all surprised for the action to break loose.
Two trips and three stops didn't locate any grass shrimp today. It just might be the clear water, but I think it has to do with the shot of rain we had on Wednesday morning.
Bloodworms and fresh clam resupply is due sometime on Friday morning. I have really loaded up and believe I am prepared for the first crowds of the season.
Still no sign of the Black Crown Night Herons. I though with the warmer temps they would be back this morning.
Green Crabs are ordered for the next time available; no crabs are expected for this Friday though.

Just wanted to give you a heads up on a few things for this weekend. I will be opening very early Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 4:30 AM We will be getting fresh clams in the shell, shucked, and we will be getting more blood worms tomorrow as well. I will be repairing reels all weekend as well. If you are waiting, I should be able to get most everything done by Monday. Get out there this weekend, this should really get it going.

Yesterday's Report: UPDATED 11:54 AM It seems that another local and big time regular Dennis Vincent was fishing with Kurt at one time last night, and had contacted me on Facebook with a picture of his keeper bass in the front of the shop. I have decided to double the prize money for the first keeper of the year and give it to them both. Good anglers, and great customers. Congrats again and the season has begun.

Friday, March 18, 2011 It was a fun day at the tackle shop. Anglers were upbeat and thinking about fishing and leaving the rest of the world behind them. Action at the point is picking up. There is no steady activity, just a fish here and there. I know of three shorts that were caught mid afternoon.
Yesterday there was activity both at Pebble Beach and Graveling Point. One keeper of thirty inches was taken home for dinner by one of the veteran GP anglers; a thirty incher.
Clams and worms came in a little late in the morning. Both are in excellent supply for the weekend.

Re: Tracking the bass up the coast 2011

Northwest winds will keep the waves knocked down and looking good, but won't help the water temps. Not really anyone fishing yet.

We are still hearing rumors of Bass caught but nothing shows up on the scale to prove it. We seem to have more people on the phone than we do on the beaches which makes it tough to give you current info. Early spring fishing always involves some searching so get out when you have some time and see how good/lucky you can be.

Turn Pike Stripers

posted Apr 14, 2011 5:31 PM by Karl Hoelper

April 14, Fish up at Trenton got a few Herring but nothing to set the world on fire. It seems like the big school of bass and herring moved with the rain that we had. We fished up at Trenton for a while and got some fish and some bites but nothing like it was. We ran down to the turn pike bridge and the herring where piled up, biting snagging what ever they where everywhere. I knew the Striper bite would be on! We made some long drifts from the turn pike bridge down to the Burlington bristol bridge. picking up bites and a few fish fish. Every drift we narrowed down where the bite was and we end up with 11 stripers. This was a great bite in the lower river. These where no 20 inch class range fish, they Primo fish.
