NJ Bass Fishing - A Hit or Miss For Some

 NJ Bass fishing remains a hit or miss for some.  Big schools of bass are all along the shore and feeding heavily on rain fish and other small baits. With that much live bait in the water it makes it a challenge for a big old bass to take your bait. It?s all about being patient and improvising until something works.

Sandy Hook, Captain Ron?s Fishermen has been working hard chasing birds and finding bass up in the 20 to 30lb range. Dr. Sal made it two days in a row with the pool fish aboard the Fishermen with fish up to 26 lbs. Captain Ron is sailing daily for big bass. It should only get more intense as bigger fish move in to feast along our shoreline.

Brielle, Captain Jerry aboard the Fish Monger can?t sit still. If the bass bite is slow the crew immediately targets a different species. I bet Captain Jerry hates sitting in traffic.

With mostly blues on the jig the Fish Monger has been switching over to bottom fish and finding plenty of double header porgy action. Captain Jerry was able to put triple digit porgies in the box this week and keeping the action consistent for his patrons.  Another great week aboard the Fish Monger with a nice variety of porgies, fluke, sea bass, bonito, bluefish and of course striped bass.
Jim and James Monaghan from Spring Hill TN sporting their 30 lbs Striper, Caught on a NJ Charter.

Highlands, Captain Diane aboard Lady Di II Fishing charters had buddies Capt. Erwin and Paul out for a trophy bass hunt. Captain Diane immediately found the birds with bass breaking the surface. After a few shorts they managed to max out and troll up six nice keepers and back at the dock by lunch time.

It?s an amazing time of the year. Acers of bait fish along our shore and big bass and blues patrolling them make conditions perfect for all anglers to experience top water action. Taking a day off work is definitely worth a shot at these amazing fish.
Remember an angler means being courteous to other anglers from a boat or the surf. Give everyone elbow room, cutting across a school of fish or a fishing fleet only decreases the odds of catching  fish and defeats the purpose for everyone, it?s a big ocean give everyone room to fish......
