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.…

June 7, 07 -- Bass bouncing back and onto the beach

Thursday, June 07, 2007: Waves: Small.

Ocean has calmed and just like that the bass are bouncing back. Not that they went far. They just weren’t heavily fished during the blow and subsequent groundswell. Well, not only were three new names added to the Simply Bassin’ board but a goodly number of non-tourney fish came to light. Nothing huge,…

J-mann -- Early Wednesday June 6, 07 -- Things settling, stripers returning

Wednesday, June 06, 2007: A serious swell and those fierce swings in water temp have left the surf-front bassing very wanting. The fish are there but it’ll take the smaller surf (beginning today) for angler to retrack them. There is the surf fishing upside to any stir like the one we just had: It gets the bigger bass in close, going for clams and crabs displaced by the wave action.

Sunday, June 03, 2007: Storm slow to honk; some fiesty fluking

Sunday, June 03, 2007: Waves: 3-5 feet out of the south (not nearly as large as predicted). Water temps: Frigid 40s, though forecasted easterly winds could warm water very rapidly – if those winds actually develop.

Talks of crappy weather had many anglers calling off fishing trips or even heading back home before the weekend’s end. I have to admit that the reports…

Saturday June 2, 07 -- Winds whip things around

Saturday, June 02, 2007: Waves: Choppy 2-4 feet out of the south; cold dirtying water; upwelling lowering water temps back into the 50s, potential low 50s if winds persist.

Winds were a serious factor today, though a load of boats were plying the nearshore water. I hung out at a secret beach near B. Inlet and saw a modest flow of angler traffic heading out for fluke.

Smiler of…

Friday, June 01, 2007: Winds were testy late but the bassin’ continues to rock. The hooking is north to south, though far from every street. Some super hot stops and some dominated by skates and dogs. However, below will give you a sense of a hot site. Thanks, Joe, for the fine write-up of the action. More on the big bass as I get info.

Bass Alert -- June 1, midday


June 1, midday -- I have to officially issue a bass alert. I’ve been heavily alluding to honking bassing beneath the bunker pods, particularly nearshore, South End (though wherever the bunker are so trail the super stripers). Now, that boat bite is showing so many carousing cows that it qualifies as a full-blown alert event. However, that alert heightens when you add the fulfillment of one of predictions that the cows will come toward the beach after dark. Last night… Continue

j-mann -- Thursday, May 31 -- Big bass beneath bunker.

Thursday, May 31, 2007: The fishing was good in the surf and remains huge nearshore for boaters chasing the bunker. More and more weigh-ins of boated cows over 30 pounds – with some grumbling over the keeping major fish just for a shop photo. There were also upwards of half a dozen bass of over 40 pounds. Some folks are trolling for the bass.

As blackfish season drops to…

J-mann Wednesday May 30 -- Nice weather and hot bass

Wednesday, May 30, 2007:

Another fine day though winds got testy late. I’m a bit stuck between a rock and an off-the-record spot. I have a few very upbeat reports of cow bass all but packed under the bunker pods. Try bass over 50 pounds. I know of two but heard there were more. One very dedicated bassers said he’s had three fish over 40 pounds, all catch-and-release. The technique is…

Tuesday, May 29, 2007:

Even with the passage of a cold front, the weather remains profoundly cooperative. In fact, today was the nicest day in the past week, which is saying a lot. Crystal clear conditions with a slightly testy north…

Great holiday weekend, weather-wise. The skates liked it, too.

Sunday, May 27, 2007: What a fishing day – what a fishing weekend. Low winds, ideal surf and bay conditions and a fair showing of quarry, though many folks would have liked better takes on the bass front. Still, the angling pressure was through the roof, especially boat-wise – though it was not anywhere near the record-breaking numbers I had thought after seeing all the traffic coming on the…

J-mann -- Tuesday May 22, 07 -- Surf City to open, maybe tomorrow

Tuesday, May 22, 2007: I have word that the Surf City beaches could open by tomorrow. The DEP has sighed off (i.e. agreed with) the Army Corps assertion that the beaches are safe.

Here’s how the beach thing will play out this summer.

First, the impact of the beach will blow away beachgoers. The Surf City sands are huge, wide and perfectly…
