Fishing Report 10/17/23

Fishing Report:

Water Temp: Ocean 62.2°F Bay 59-63°F

Air Temp: 50.7°F

Surf: last night we had 2 stripers weighed in for the fall classic caught up at the lighthouse. From the surf, the kingfish bite is still good. Yesterday there were a couple of reports of smaller bass caught on bunker and some small bluefish mixed in as well. There are still a couple of reports of large bass being caught from IBSP.

Ocean: I didn’t hear of any boats fishing yesterday.

The rest of the Week: Looking at this week & weekend I think LBI will see a handful of large stripers caught from the surf. Boaters will take advantage of the calm seas forecasted this week to get in on the action. We just don’t know how fast these larger stripers are moving south.

Weather Report: The wind this week looks to be mainly out of the NW not getting higher than 10kts. Seas will be 1-2’ after today with a 10-12sec swell period. Weather looks to be good the rest of the week with the possibility of rain this weekend
