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…

Tuesday June 19, 07 -- Helping hands

Tuesday, June 19, 2007: Waves: Small but still some current and rips to deal with.

One of those crazy busy weeks at The SandPaper. Thanks to the following emailists for essentially writing today’s blog.…

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…

Wednesday, June 13, 2007: -- Big bass taken, South End

Wednesday, June 13, 2007:

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.…

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.

Boat…

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…
