As the weekend came to an end the reports remained consistent. With there being a few bigger stripers off the beach still. Yesterday there was a 44'' bass caught up in Surf City on bunker during mid day. You just have to work through the spiny dogfish to have any chance at catching a bass. The night bite is staying constant with bass in the 20'' range being caught on lures. Right now the bass are main feeding on sand eels so you want to match the match by using small swim shad, Dimond jig, bucktail, and SP minnows. Also don't forget your teaser in front of any of these lures. A lot of these smaller night fish are cursing right along the shore so make sure you fish your lure till you can see it on the sand. On Sunday some of the boaters were getting into some larger bluefish in the 5-10 pound range. We will see these blues hit the beach? Only time will tell but I think if we do see them it will be by this upcoming weekend. Right now the weather for this weekend looks prefect so get out this weekend and fish! I have some availability Friday-sunday but they fill up quick! please call, text, or email me if you want to book a guide or have any question.
Near the end of this week LBI beaches saw the biggest bass so far this fall with multiple fish over 40 inches which were in the 25-40 pound range. There aren't a whole a lot of them around but if you put your time in you will have a good chance at landing one of these trophy's. The more consistant striper bit is during the night or at first light. During these times, stripers in the 20-30 inch range are in close to the beach looking for a meal. A small Dimond jig, SP minnow, or a small shad is what has been working best for these smaller fish. The main action is still to the north of us off of Seaside. There has been a very good bit out in the ocean which has put a lot of boater on fish in the 30-50 inch range. This fall striper run is just started to kick into full gear, so get out and put your time in off the beach. If you want to set up a guide or have any question, pease reach out to me.
