#40966 shore

Posted by chris on 06 June 2011 - 01:04 PM in Out of Town Adventures

sweet ill give it a try, i have a house right by the bridge into sea isle, i got the flounder down but tryna chase them stripes. fishing the bottom with bait productive?


sure, but its lots more fun, maybe even more productive to use small plugs and jigs. Walk some sods and fish current breaks, stripers ambush bait as it moves with the tide, easiest way for them to do that is lay in a current break and wait for the bait to swim by overhead. little bombers, smack its, or zooms are all you need, replace the hooks though or youll lose your big fish. creek mouths and points are the best place to catch, give the bridges a try to as you never know whats lurking along the shadowlines in some deeper water.

holy shit i didnt know there was that much ha, now for the stripers at night, i would love to give that a try, are they in there thick or is one fish a night the norm?

depends on the night, gotta put some effort into it and youll figure out the spots and tides, once you do that you can catch 20 fish a night, or more... but usually its like 3-6 fish a night, usually shorts, but you can get keepers mixed in. lotta fun on topwater... I never fished behind sea isle, but theres surely some good spots back there, generally like the wildwoods or ocean city area. Bridge lights at night can be good in july too, can caatch some nice fluke and weakies along with the bass... and of coarse blues and shad. you could also catch 100 5"-8" seabass during the day if youre just lookin for action.

Anyone know of anything biting in sea isle around july besides flounder? i am trying to change it up a bit.


fluke in the surf and backbays, tog and triggers from jetties/structure, sharks at night, stripers in the backbay at night, dusk and dawn, brown sharks off the beach in the evening, kingfish in the surf. surf fluke fishing is a ton of fun, should give it a try, july is a good month to do that.

cookie cutter 30" fish!!
SJ spring striper fisherie getting better than say 4~5 years ago?
Or your fishing skill have been improved? I guess both?
Great to hear shore report. :)


We've honed in on better spots over the past couple years, no more futile shit... they run bigger in the spring than the fall. heres another one for ya aki, back down last night, slower fishing but still decent, got 2 shorts a 30" 31" and a 14lb 33", lost 3 other bass, 1 felt short the other 2 woulda been keepers, strictly jiggin. also got a short fluke and missed somethig that left some interesting teeth marks in my zoom, if you know what I mean.

#40502 shore

Its kinda funny cause it was on opening day for flounder and the striper was actually a bycatch.
It really caught me by suprise cause I was just minding my own business dragging a little 4" twister-tail
and then my reel just went f##king screaming!
Sometimes the pic dosen't do it justice cause I swear that fish was every bit of 20lbs.

Later that night I went back to that same spot with clams but after unhooking about 9 or 10 rays I gave up.
Anyone who fishes the surf knows how damn annoying that is!
You get a nice cast off and about a minute or two later you see those little taps on your surf rod and you know your freakin screwed.


awesome, on a twistertail? The pic does it justice. I was thinking 37"-39" 18lb-20lb, thats a nice bass for casting from shore! surf flukin needs another month.. backbays are still iffy. bassin in the back was hot for me friday night, looots of cookie cutter 30" fish which is the norm this time of year. gotta try the SJ surf out one of these days, the big ones should be there!

#39885 2011 Fluke Regulations

Posted by chris on 12 April 2011 - 01:22 PM in Out of Town Adventures

slots make too much sense, I too dont understand why all fish arent under slot regs. a slot would be great for every species of fish, dont think it has anything to do with party/charter boats. Fluke though have to be the healthiest fishery around, theyre not in any trouble. striper fishery is healthy too.. everyone bitches about rules and regs and how theres not enough fish and honostly I think our fisheries are doing pretty good. Weakfish will come back in the next 5 years I bet.

#39211 Not so local report

Posted by chris on 14 March 2011 - 01:14 AM in Out of Town Adventures

nice aki, japanese stripers is all they are, cool to see you gottem from a bridge. Watch out for that radiation, sounds awful over there, hopefully the situation gets better.

props for giving it a shot, gotta hope!



#39156 avalon?

Posted by chris on 09 March 2011 - 01:18 PM in Out of Town Adventures

can catch fluke and blackfish off that jetty... keeper seabass? that would be a new one.. could jig fluke in the surf too, but the avalon surf is probably about the worst in jersey.. spot and kingfish might possibly be around, but it depends on the year, and if youre there in mid-late summer you can catch sharks and rays. You can fish off the bridge at townsends and catch blackfish, fluke and bass, youll learn very quick that its a slack tide spot, as it rips through there, but dropping live bait down could get you a nice fish, lookin at 40+ FOW in there. Ive fished avalon area several dozen times, but almost exclusively the backbays... some of the best backbay flukin is behind avalon, my 3 biggest fluke have all been on avalons backside 27" 28" 28", fish at night if you want bass. stone harbor and NWW are also great places to fish the back for bass and fluke. bluefish could be anywhere at any time too

cool fish, whats wrong with the meat?



#38911 2010/11 ice thread

Posted by chris on 13 February 2011 - 08:03 PM in Out of Town Adventures

The fishings been real slow the past few weeks... have caught some decent perch and crappies, but numbers are a lot lower than what they were 6 weeks ago. Bill hit another musky, this time we were able to land it, beautiful 41" tiger, hit a jig on his 4lb setup. definitely ready for the warmth, I like ice fishing a lot but Im ready for some open-water oppurtunities. Ill be ice fishing til the end though, I think we've still got a few weeks.. should be getting better by the day as the ice retreats.



#38891 Core Creek?

Posted by chris on 09 February 2011 - 01:40 AM in General Reports, Pictures, Stories & Video

I think this is lake luxemburg? assuming youre talking about ice fishing, setup right along the dam, youll see all the old holes right off the rocks. drop and reel gills with crappie and bass mixed in, mostly dinks though. fished here a few weeks ago, ended up feeding a bunch of gills to a haggard looking heron who stopped by. fishing early and late increases your chances at getting bit, should have no problem catching gills to your sick of it.. might get lucky and hit something nice, good luck!

#38721 2 state records in 2 days???

Posted by chris on 17 January 2011 - 06:57 PM in Out of Town Adventures


always thought NC was a powerhouse for slob bass.... guess they cant hang with jersey and the NE if 64lbs is the best they can do :D


Yup, 60s are common up here  popcorn popcorn popcorn

sweet fish regardless of where it was taken


dunno if that was sarcastic or not, but 60's are caught every year in jersey, generally to do this you need a boat, a good depthfinder and a fresh bunker. no doubt a fish of a lifetime, but fishermen in the know (not me) have the schools of slob migrating bass dialed in and can hit em each season with the same results.



#38720 2010/11 ice thread

Posted by chris on 17 January 2011 - 06:44 PM in Out of Town Adventures

the skuke is pretty much all locked up, It locked up during the last snowfall... last week, i forget what day, I stopped by the st. joes boathouse below strawberry mansion and drilled a couple holes... its was only about an inch and a half... drilled holes the next day or day after up in gladwyne, found 3"+ about 10' out, ice looked exactly the same, milky on top. Im sure you could fish the river right now, and I was hoping to do so, but with a rain event tomorrow im sure it wont last. no doubt theres populations of monster unpressured crappies in the river, not to mention bass, eyes and channel cats.. would be awesome if we had an ice season on the skuke... winters still young maybe itll happen.

fished with a few forum/Xforum heads over the weekend, saturday and today. Dink perch were the norm, though we caught quality fish... today bill had a slob 13" perch, and almost had his first musky. hooked it with 8lb test on a tipup intended for perch, fought for 4 minutes or so according to my cameras video, almost had it but it pulled the hook. it was a nice fish, we got a pretty good look at as it was right at the hole, only saw its mid section, looked like it woulda been about 15lbs.. saturday we had good action with perch and crappies, nothing huge, but crappies and perch to around 11". fried em up, wasnt that great :D today the action was slower.. and it was colder, still had a good time though.
