Brown sharks have arrived!!!!

Anchored up in great bay Saturday night in search of the brown shark with a buddy of mine. Arrived right at dark, chum overboard, within 5 minutes zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!! Gotta love it. Fish was big 15 minute fight 30lb test with 140lb wire leader and 9/0 hook, Whole fresh bunker as bait. Fish went back and forth under boat and snagged on my floating chum pot. Snapped of course!! My guess is fish was 6 foot long. I was pissed we didn't land that fish!! We had plenty of other…

Saturday June 23 -- I can see clearly now -- and that ain't so good

Saturday, June 23, 2007: It gets no clearer – or dingier.

The nearshore water, right up to where the last of the suds dissolves into the wet sand, was so clear that the chances of catching a fish were clearly impossible. OK, so maybe a small fluke was taken near jetties but only predawn offered a serious shot at a striper. In Harvey Cedars, I was watching a fellow casting out…

Friday June 22 -- Winds are brisk but bassing ain't

Friday, June 22, 2007: Winds whipped in from the west and made for a beautiful looking day but a challenge on the angling side of things.

There were some fair showings of small bass in the suds but we’re back to a struggle for a keeper. I guess we’re getting into our resident bass set-up, though as long as we have bait pods out there, the bigger bass should be with us – even throughout the…

Thursday June 21 -- A bit slow but bass potential building

Thursday, June 21, 2007: Waves: Small

Decent fishing conditions for the first day of summer. Fluking is astoundingly cellular. The areas where the better flatties are celled up makes for fine catching. Double Creek remains in the doormat zone once fish are found. When off-cell, there is super slowness. While shorts are common they’re nowhere near as packed in the way they were a…

June 20 Weekly Blog -- Tuning Into Freaky Fishing

SOUND BITES GO FISHING: In lieu of actually catching fish, I often spend bite-free time devising underhanded ways to lure in the likes of mega-cow bass. Since most of my fish-coaxing brainstorms get me nowhere when it comes to mastering those mini-brained gill-wagglers, I also think up ways to simply…

Anchored Up... 06/18/2007

Well, We anchored up last night @ the mouth of Little Sheepshead (Holgate) in 20 feet of water from 9pm to 2am. Bait was fresh clam, clam chum, bunker, eels. Nothing but doggies. Couldn't even get a break from them. It was fun but that only last so long. I was hoping as the water temp was a bit cooler. No such luck!!!!

Kayak fishing 6/17

Took my kayak out to some bunker pods on the south end. Only about 4 other boats in the area. Lots of bunker and seemed to be big fish on them as well. Snagged some bunker and dropped them on the snag hook. I was using a 7' Ugly Stik so when a big fish hit I knew it. First fish I had on, broke my line. Then I landed a bluefish probably about 10-12 pounds. Chased the same pod for maybe a half hour but then I went back north and realized there were plenty more of pods heading south with fish on… Continue

Sunday June 17, 2007 -- Surf calms but clams don't step up

Sunday, June 17, 2007: Waves: Finally the swell falls off to 2 feet –along with a die-down of the currents.

The switch to straight offshore west winds (midday) invited I some near-torrid air temps – and some black flies. It helped the surfcasters, most of whom were using clams to cash in on the bass that were…

Saturday, June 16, 2007 -- Waves persist and Bill Figley's letter

Saturday, June 16, 2007: Waves: Rebuilt to about 3-5 feet today; a bit of a surprise increase in the wave action. It lead to my contacting the weather Service to increase rip current warning levels from “low” – that it seemed it would be when I called in at sunrise – to a healthy “moderate.”

I’m not sure why the swell surged so much but it did make surfcasting tough. Also, the rock and roll…

Friday June 15: Waves drop a tad; lead is still order of the day

(Note: I’m getting a lot of info fed me during the day so some daily reports will have updates throughout the day – check back)

In fact: Midday: Fuse found on the beach after the heavy surf in Surf City/Ship Bottom. To be expected, actually. Good thing the beaches were fairly bare -- and it wasn't some toddler playing in the…

June 14 -- Wind splits in nothing flat

Thursday, June 14, 2007: Waves: Large.

Talk about hitting the brakes. The wind made what amounted to a panic stop late in the afternoon. The skid marks could be seen across the bay surface as glassiness set in toward dark, with fast-moving north to south currents from the earlier winds making snakes on the water’s surface.

The surf remains majorly…

Some fine stripers were taken on the lip of the winds – right before it began crankin’ heavily from the NE. The hooking was led by South End action.…

Tuesday June 12, 2007:



RUNDOWN: Despite overly clear waters, some serious bass are coming to light, fish to 30 pounds with many in the 20s of pounds. More than ever, an emphasis has to be placed on the scattered nature of these better bass. I say that because easily the majority of reports I got over the weekend grumbled about super slow hooking – and an insidious (and steady) loss of valuable clam baits, lost to either crabs or (I’m guessing) arriving kingfish.

While the…

J-mann Saturday june 9, 2007 -- Major bass north end and a half mile of fluke

Saturday, June 09, 2007: I chatted with a few anglers along LBI beaches and none had much luck. Problem could be the over-clear water during the day. There was also baffling bait loss for just about all surfcasters. I told a couple anglers in HC who were rapidly losing bait and suggested it might be kingfish slowly tearing apart clam gobs.…

Friday June 8, 2007 -- Bass rebounding and flukers start your engines

Friday, June 08, 2007: Waves: Small.

Bass are being taken from beach and boat. Small fish are the bugaboo on the beach but amid the smallity are some fine takers-home – and even some weigh-worthy hookups, including a couple more fish past 20 pounds. More bigger bass are going for clam over bunker. I guess that’s to be expected after a storm.…
