Saturday, November 23, 2013: The LBI Surf Fishing Classic, after an abysmal first seven weeks,  is looking a bit more like a tournament, with a decent number of fish entered over the past few days. But, please don’t take that to mean there is some scalding hot beach bite in play, as some folks have mistakenly assumed – only to rush to the beach and stand idly by.  There is a decent showing if surfside bass for a goodly number of folks, while others are still firmly planted in Skunk City -- though even skunkites are getting some swacks at bait and plugs, which wasn’t the case in recent weeks.

Below are the latest additions to the Classic leaderboard, as it heads toward end times on Dec. 1. Might it be going out in a bass blaze of glory? I refuse to say in the way a baseball announcer isn’t supposed to mention no-hitter in progress.  I can say that it seems a long holiday weekend might be arriving at very opportune time.

Here's buddy John K.:

For boat anglers, the wind is testing for vessel size. You better have some meat to handle the chop out there. Still, I saw a goodly number of boats coming in through BH and LE inlets, a few at dark. I only got a few boat reports and they spoke of spotty bassing. I also heard “three in the cooler” radio chatter at my office in SC. Can’t tell from where, though.

 (Here are three looks at the progress on the BHM&TC clubhouse. Loose great. Excellent workmanship.  http://youtu.be/GIuv6Q67Jec

Saw a couple fellows surfcasting who caught not one but two red drum, both as fat as these schoolie-sized drum get. They had been eating sand eels and both fish bit on clam baits. The two anglers also had a fat bass of legal proportions, but that had been taken on a teaser running ahead of an Ava. They preferred I didn’t even hint at their names – I only use first name and last initial in most cases – since they now have every intention of playing hooky for this coming week (Monday and Tuesday).  “This was our worst fall ever ..until today,” they said, wanting to remind them how to blacken redfish and offering me a filet. .

Here is a way-important message from USCG: 

It is illegal to catch and be in the possession of any Atlantic Striped Bass outside three nautical miles from land. The fish will be seized along with possible fines. The fish below have been taken to a local food bank.
