Two trips aboard went well Saturday and Sunday with <b>Angler Sportfishing Charters</b>, Capt. Chuck said. One fished during the daytime Saturday, and the other fished overnight Saturday to Sunday. On the first trip, sailing 1 to 6 p.m., tons of blues – “just crazy,” Chuck said – and two striped bass were beaten. On the second, sailing 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 a.m., six stripers and loads of blues were wrestled in. The stripers on the trips weighed up to 20 and 30 pounds, not bad, Chuck said. The blues almost couldn’t be counted. Both trips fished with bunker chunks, and bunker were scarce in the waters, but Chuck netted a couple of dozen, and was able to buy some.
Numbers of striped bass seemed to grow that were caught along the Arthur Kill, said Pat from <b>E-Z Catch Saltwater Traps & Tackle Co.</b> Most anglers fished for them with clams or chunks of bunker. More stripers seemed to be mixed in along Staten Island’s south shore around Great Kills, and more bluefish, big ones to 12 and 15 pounds, seemed to school there. Fishing for porgies seemed to taper off for bank anglers along the Arthur Kill. But blackfishing was very good for them and for boaters. In freshwater largemouth bass should be able to be angled from Sylvan Lake. The pond at Pouch Boy Scout Camp, though access there is limited to members, served up excellent freshwater catches. Lots of chain pickerel get punched there this time of year. The store is also a <b><i>premier manufacturer and supplier of saltwater traps</i></b> for wholesale and commercial, including custom building and servicing. See the online <a href="http://www.e-zcatch.com/catalog" target="_blank">catalog of traps</a>. E-Z Catch is also a train store.
Not a lot of striped bass seemed to bite during the weekend, and one was bagged aboard on a trip Saturday with <b>Papa’s Angels Charters</b>, covered in the last report. The trip fished at Romer Shoal and Flynn’s Knoll, Capt. Joe said. But the striper run was probably impending, and there was no first two weeks of November in recent memory when the fishing hadn’t begun. Trips are also available for bottom fishing for porgies and blackfish. Open-boat trips are available daily, when no charter is booked. Call to reserve.
Striped bass put up good catches, and eels began to nail them the past few days, and clams squashed them, said Jimmy from <b>Julian’s Bait & Tackle</b>. Stripers could be hooked at the channels and on the rivers. A few bluefish were around, and boaters could chum lots at 17 fathoms. Bottom fishing shoveled up plenty of porgies and blackfish, and sea bass season will open Tuesday. A friend who runs a charter boat scored excellent catches of cod and ling. The catch was all cod on some days, and was a mix on others.
On the party boat <b>Fishermen</b> striped bass were finally jigged, Capt. Ron said in a report on the vessel’s Web site. The fish smacked the metal on Monday’s and Tuesday’s trips that gave up a mix of blues and a handful of stripers. A 31-pound whopper was the biggest striper on Tuesday’s trip. “Plenty of bait and readings,” Ron said, “with the fish moving way too fast. Tough to stay on them,” especially in 25-knot winds. He hoped the coming colder weather would turn on the fishing “a bit more,” he said. The Fishermen is sailing for striped bass 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily.
Bottom-fishing trips sailed Monday to Wednesday, had the weather to go, on the party boat <b>Atlantic Star</b>, Capt. Tom said. On Monday’s trip mixed-sized porgies and a few blackfish were rounded up around the channels. Currents were strong, so Tuesday’s trip sailed to Sandy Hook Reef. Fishing for porgies, mixed sizes, was just a pick there. The boat was moved to the rocks, and a few blackfish were bagged. No great shakes, and the ratio of keepers wasn’t terrific. The catch on Wednesday’s trip was probably the best in some time. Forecasts called for winds that never developed, but kept many anglers from showing up at the dock. But the anglers aboard plowed good porgy fishing, and even Tom got to fish, reeling in 20 or 25. Anglers who blackfished caught the tog, more keepers than shorts, opposite from the previous day. Green crabs were available aboard for blackfish bait in the past days, and the crabs weren’t always available lately, were scarce. No guarantee they’ll be aboard. The fishing overall on the trips was okay, and was good on Wednesday. Trips will be able to put more emphasis on sea bass starting Tuesday, when sea bass season opens. Tom will see how the weather forecast for the weekend will pan out. “Anything can change,” he said, and forecasts weren’t always accurate lately. The Atlantic Star is fishing for porgies and blackfish 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily.
<b>***Update, Saturday, 10/29:***</b> From an edited e-mail from Capt. Pete from the <b>Hyper Striper</b>: “Tuesday David Koptra party had super pre-season togging, keeping the one-per-man limit from 4-6 lbs, playing catch and release with more. Wed Paramus building supply had super fishing for stripers with a limit, then adding a few togs. Wed pm Dennis Siclari party had another double limit of bass, then tog. Fri am the Russ Schofield party hammered the bass, with a limit plus many releases. Friday afternoon Rich Gibson's party limited on bass to 22 lbs, and released many keepers as well.”
Fishing for striped bass was tough during the weekend, and supposedly became somewhat better afterward, said Capt. Derek from <b>Fisher Price Charters</b>. He was running a striper trip Wednesday evening when he gave this report over the phone. Charters are fishing, and the next open-boat trips will fish for stripers Saturday and Sunday. Call to climb aboard or to be kept informed about the future open schedule.
Striped bass fishing was no good during the weekend, but improved on Monday, said Capt. Dave from <b>Raritan Bay Charters</b>. The boat’s striper trips began for the season during the weekend, and a trip Saturday produced one short, while the anglers dunked clams. A charter Saturday tried drifting eels for stripers at Ambrose Channel, but only one short was landed. So the trip switched to bottom fishing, limiting out on blackfish, reeling up porgies and letting go out-of-season sea bass. Sea bass season will launch Tuesday. A striper charter is set for Sunday, and space is available for an open-boat trip for stripers Saturday. Open-boat trips are available daily when no charter is booked.
Boaters from <b>Twin Lights Marina</b> picked striped bass, Wayne said. They fished with clams and eels, and one angler from the docks ran a trip that eeled three of the bass at Ambrose Channel. A charter boat from the marina ran striper trips that mixed in blackfishing. The tog seemed around, though not many fished for them in the one-blackfish bag limit. The limit will be cranked up to six on November 16. Fresh clams and all the frozen baits for inshore are stocked. All the offshore frozen baits are on hand.
A good catch of striped bass, seven or eight of the fish to 25 pounds, was trolled on bunker spoons on a trip Capt. Ralph from <b>Last Lady Fishing Charters</b> took on the ocean with friends Wednesday evening, he said. The fishing was phenomenal, he said, and only two bluefish bit. The weather looks tough for Last Lady’s trips to sail this weekend. Anglers aboard might get out Friday afternoon, and Saturday looks like a wash out, and Sunday looks iffy. Sea bass season will open Tuesday, and an individual-reservation trip for striped bass and sea bass will sail November 6. Individual-rez trips for sea bass, porgies and blackfish are set for November 8 and 13, and the trips might also target stripers. The blackfish bag limit will be increased to six of the tog on November 16 from the current limit of one. Individual-reservation trips for blackfish with openings will run November 20 and 27 and December 4, 11, 18 and 23. An individual-reservation trip for cod and pollock is slated for November 23. Charters are available daily.
With <b>Fin-Ominal Sportfishing</b> two trips fished for tuna at Wilmington Canyon, about 115 miles from Shark River Inlet, Capt. Jared said. One sailed just before the last storm, and the other ran Sunday to Monday. Both trips scored okay, boxing a total of about 25 tuna.
Forecasts already forced a charter aboard to be cancelled Sunday with <b>Fish Stix Sportfishing</b>, Capt. Kris said. The weekend might be a wash out. Fish Stix on trips has been scoping out striped bass fishing, ready to pounce on them when the migration arrives. Trips usually took a shot at stripers at first, and none was really around yet, so then the anglers fished for tog, bagging a limit of one apiece, playing catch and release with plenty more. Charters are fishing, and so are <a href="http://www.fishstixnj.com/index.php/open-boat-trips" target="_blank">open-boat trips</a>.
Fifteen or 20 striped bass, keepers, per trip began to be bagged Tuesday and Wednesday, along with lots of bluefish, on the party boat <b>Miss Belmar Princess</b>, Capt. Alan said. Additional keeper bass were lost, and this was with light crowds, 20 people or so per outing. Fishing for the blues, big ones 8 to 15 pounds, was very good. Bluefishing was also super on the boat’s nighttime trips Friday and Saturday. No bass were bagged on the night trips, because the outings fished offshore, where striper fishing is closed. The Miss Belmar Princess is sailing 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily and 7:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The party boat <b>Tropical Adventure</b>, Alan’s other vessel, will begin bottom fishing 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily on November 16, when the blackfish bag limit is increased to six from the current limit of one. Fish including the blacks, sea bass and ling will be targeted.
Weather was rough, and winds started blowing toward the end of the trip, but fishing for big blues was good today on the party boat <b>Golden Eagle</b>, a report on the vessel’s Web site said. The fishing was a little less active than on Wednesday’s trip. A handful of striped bass, including several keepers, were also tugged up on today’s trip. The Golden Eagle is sailing 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily and 7:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Striperthons are sailing every Monday and Friday, though this Friday’s trip has been cancelled because of weather forecasts. Check the <a href="http://www.goldeneaglefishing.com/tuna_schedule_res_form_2011.pdf" target="_blank">Golden Eagle’s canyon tuna schedule and reservations form</a> for info about the boat’s tuna trips.
<b>Point Pleasant Beach</b>
Two overnight tuna trips steamed Friday to Saturday and Saturday to Sunday on the party boat <b>Gambler</b>, Capt. Bob said. The first trip limited out on yellowfin tuna, covered in the last report, and the second trip was also very good. All the patrons, from the Jersey Coast Shark Anglers, probably limited out on yellowfins, Bob thought, and a few of the fish were big, weighing up to a 65-pounder that Cristyn Jones, Toms River, decked. A couple of longfin tuna were also bagged. But the highlight of the trip was a huge swordfish, probably 500 pounds, that John Sameth from Roselle heaved in. The fish was 14 feet from the tip of the sword to the end of the tail. From the lower jaw to the fork of the tail, it was 9 feet, with a 6-foot girth. Some of the anglers used formulas calculating the weight to be 800 pounds. But Bob didn’t think the fish weighed that much. Still, the sword was a monster. More tuna trips are slated aboard today and Saturday, and daily striped bass trips aboard will kick off Tuesday. However, a couple of tuna trips might be added for November, because the fishing’s been so good. “Like old-time tuna fishing,” Bob said. Trips also had the weather to sail this fall more than in recent falls, though some of the tuna trips were weathered out this season.
A mix of fish, a little of everything, not a lot of anything, was swung aboard the bottom-fishing trips on the party boat <b>Dauntless</b>, Capt. Butch said. Porgies were picked up, and fishing for them wasn’t good, but on some days was alright. Anglers aboard picked away at blackfish, and iced a few ling. A healthy shot of big blues 6 to 12 pounds gave up catches for an hour on Wednesday’s trip. Lots of out-of-season sea bass were let go on trips, and Butch hoped they’d stick around for the opening of sea bass season this Tuesday. Trips then will hone in on sea bass if they’re still around. The boat fished in depths to 120 feet, and waters were 59 or 60 degrees, fairly warm for the time of year. The Dauntless is bottom fishing 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily.
Boaters ran into blitzing striped bass and blues off Manasquan Inlet on Wednesday, said Chuck from <b>Gates Bait & Tackle</b>. Surf fishing lately was a little slow, but striper catches seemed to be picking up in the surf from locally to Seaside. Catches seemed to begin improving, though weather was now moving in, and anglers would see how that affected fishing. A 32-pound striper was reported caught from the Point Pleasant Canal, and loads of blackfish hovered in the canal. Not many of the party-boat trips seemed to sail through the week. The Dauntless probably bottom fished, and the Gambler probably ran for tuna, at least. <b>***THIS TACKLE SHOP IS FOR SALE! CALL: 732-899-5760.***</b>
A few striped bass and some bluefish were banked from the surf, but catches were slow, said Dennis from <b>Murphy’s Hook House</b>. Not a lot of bait swam the waters, but bunker and sand eels sometimes did. The cold snap that’s coming will help drop water temps, and that should be good for the fishing. Air temps are supposed to dip into the 30s tonight and Friday night, and Friday during the daytime is supposed to be in the 40s, the lowest temps yet this season. Boaters on the ocean trolled somewhat better catches of stripers than before, mostly just inshore of 3 miles from the coast. Most of the bass seemed to swim beyond 3 miles, where striper fishing is closed, to 5 miles off. A few bunker swam the ocean, and fresh bunker were able to be stocked Wednesday night. Along the Barnegat Inlet jetties blackfish were bonked, and a few stripers were popper-plugged or eeled. Eeling for stripers along the bay’s sod banks at night put up no great numbers but catches. A few stripers could be hooked on the bay along the Route 37 Bridge in the dark. Dennis saw a couple of boaters there Wednesday night, and the anglers probably fished with swimming lures like Rapalas, a usual choice. In the bay closer to the inlet a few blowfish and kingfish remained, but angling for them was slowing down in the 57- or 58-degree waters, and the coming cold will probably push them out. Most of the bait departed the Toms River, but snapper blues and crabs could be found in the river. Bait swam at places in the bay like along Berkeley Island Park, and a few small weakfish hung there.
Surf fishing sounded slow, but big blues were beached from the shore earlier in the week, said Jay from <b>The Dock Outfitters</b>. Striped bass fishing was spotty in the surf, but ling were plucked from the waters. Lots of bunker swam the surf, and the blues were on them. The population of sand eels was getting thicker in the surf. Not much was heard about Barnegat Bay, and the slower fishing seemed to keep anglers from getting out. Fresh clams, fresh bunker, eels and the complete line of baits is stocked. Catch Wacky Wednesdays, featuring clams for $2.75 per dozen.
Barnegat Bay anglers began socking striped bass on livelined spots during the daytime and on eels at night, said Grizz from <b>Grizz’s Forked River Bait & Tackle</b>. A few, not many, were clammed during the day. The bass on eels at night were big, and a 42-1/2-pounder and a 35-pounder were weighed in. Stripers, smaller ones, but a few keepers, were cracked along the Barnegat Inlet jetties on plugs and white bucktails. A few blowfish lingered in the bay. Good catches of tuna were gaffed at Wilmington Canyon this weekend.
<b>***Update, Friday, 10/28:***</b> From an edited e-mail from Capt. Dave DeGennaro from the <b>Hi Flier</b>: “Ran northeast from Barnegat Inlet (on Thursday) and got into stripers and gator blues on top-water plugs and diamond jigs. Big flocks of birds, black-out readings on the machine, like fall should be. Now the bay is all lit up with fish, as well. Good thing, too, as I am sitting on a few hundred live spots that are about to meet their doom. ‘Just unders’ to ‘way overs’ have turned on, now that the inside water temp hit 58 degrees. Even on the windy days, when the ocean is too rough, we will be catching bass in the bay from now into December.”
Surf fishing was mostly slow, but anglers hoped that striped bass would tumble in with the current storm, said Sue from <b>Surf City Bait & Tackle</b>. Two stripers 28 and 25 pounds were weighed in from the Holgate surf Wednesday. About 45 stripers were checked in from the shore since the Long Beach Island Surf Fishing Classic began October 8. Blues, small ones, sometimes ran the surf, and not so many kingfish nipped in the wash anymore.

Blackfishing was good, giving up many sizeable ones, Capt. T.J. from <b>Legal Limit Charters</b> said. Only one was the bag limit, but the anglers aboard played catch and release with plenty more. Twenty-five large ones to 7 pounds were landed on deck Sunday, and the bag limit will be increased to six on November 16. On T.J.’s other boat, sailing from Cape May, charters were supposed to begin striped bass fishing Saturday, bunker-chunking on Delaware Bay, but the fishing looks like it’ll be weathered out. Charters and <a href=" http://www.legallimitcharters.com/open-boat.php

Angling for striped bass is traditionally happening by this time of year, and weather, like today’s winds and the storm, kept anglers from fishing much, but a few catches hinted that stripers were moving in, said Scott from <b>Scott’s Bait & Tackle</b>. So that was good, and this was “striper weather,” he said, and anglers were happy. The fishing wasn’t yet good, but the hints that the fish were arriving included two stripers 26 and 33 pounds weighed in, five other good-sized stripers caught in 45 minutes, and a 49-incher that anglers saw another catch. Little Egg Inlet was the place to look for them, fishing with clams. Little else happened, and nobody talked about trying for other fish like tog or white perch. Everyone keyed in on stripers. Fresh, shucked clams are stocked, and are scarce because the weather often kept clam boats from sailing, but the supply should be in good shape at the store, Scott hopes. A few fresh bunker are stocked, but are also scarce, and will likely run out, and getting more might be tough. Eels, green crabs, bloodworms and grass shrimp are on hand.
Catches of striped bass weren’t fully on, but “were getting there,” said Curt from <b>Absecon Bay Sportsman Center</b>. Lots of the catches, not lots of keepers, were heard about, so most of the bass were probably local, younger fish, yet to migrate. Stripers came from everywhere, including from the surf to the inlets to the back bay. A 46-pounder was weighed in from a boat on the ocean, probably off Brigantine, Curt guessed. Capt. Dave, the shop’s owner, ran his season’s first striper charter Wednesday, and 13 stripers, including one good-sized keeper, were toggled in. That many fish seemed a good sign that stripers were active. Tog fishing was very good at places like along the bridges. Kingfish could still be angled from the surf, and small blues swam the surf. Curt, a white perch angler, put together a good catch of them Sunday, even if that took a while. Perch fishing was fairly decent lately. Fresh clams and live spots, large and small finger mullet, eels and green crabs are stocked. Fresh bunker’s been somewhat difficult to find, but the baitfish should become more abundant.
A striped bass was checked in here and there, and fishing for them remained slow, but a few big ones were weighed in, and anglers waited for the explosion of migrating stripers, said Capt. Andy from <b>Riptide Bait & Tackle</b>. Sizeable kingfish 15 and 16 inches were checked in from the surf. Kevin McGowan brought in the first striper entered in the Riptide Striper Derby, beaching the 28-pound 38-incher from the surf. Dave Gardner boated a 21-pound striper on the Reel Deal, and another angler, “Schmidty,” axed a 22-pounder on the vessel on another trip. All the baits are stocked except fresh bunker that’s scarce from suppliers. The annual Riptide Striper Derby is under way, lasting to December 23. Anglers who enter the first, second and third biggest stripers from the Brigantine front beach will win $500, $300 and $150, respectively. Plus a $25 weekly prize, a $50 monthly prize and a $100 woman’s prize will be awarded. Entry in the tournament provides beach-buggy access to the island’s front beach for those who have a Brigantine beach-buggy permit.
Small striped bass swam the surf, and soft-plastic lures or top-water plugs could belt them along the jetties, said Bill from <b>Fin-Atics</b>. Fishing stayed about the same as previously, and kingfish held in the surf. The back bay gave up small stripers on the same lures during evenings or at night. Tog fishing was good at the bridges and other structure at spots including Corson’s Inlet. Tons of sea bass littered the ocean reefs, and should bite when sea bass season opens Tuesday. Bill caught and released them a couple of weeks ago, and the fishing “was not even a challenge,” he said. Tuna were boated at Spencer Canyon during the weekend, mostly on the overnight chunk.
<b>Sea Isle City</b>
The number of stripers beached from the surf increased a little, said Mike from <b>Sea Isle Bait & Tackle</b>. Clams caught them, and a few stripers were even trolled on the ocean off Sea Isle on umbrella rigs, spoons and Stretch 25 lures. Kingfish were bloodwormed in the surf, and the population of small blues, some of them better-sized, decreased a bit, but the fish still swam everywhere from the back bay to the inlets, surf and ocean. Waters along the bridges harbored good catches of weakfish and striped bass, mostly on soft-plastic lures like Fin-S Fish, Bass Assassins or Sassy Shads. Stripers were clubbed on the back bay on popper lures and swimming plugs in the evenings and on spots and eels at night. Boaters scouted for sea bass at the ocean wrecks before sea bass season will open Tuesday, and lots appeared to be around. A few false albacore were trolled at the Cigar, and even a mahi mahi was trolled there maybe a week ago, so inshore trolling still seemed to produce. Nothing was heard about canyon tuna fishing in the weather.
Migrating striped bass started to be found in the ocean the last couple of days, said Capt. Joe Hughes from <b>Jersey Cape Guide Service</b>, affiliated with <b>Sea Isle Bait & Tackle</b>. Not a lot moved in, and catches were sporadic, but they were located, and catches could amp up any day. Sporadic bird plays began to appear, feeding on bait along the surface, above the fish. Surf anglers started to beach stripers on live and fresh mullet, and began to connect with better consistency on popper and swimming plugs. Rich Linus and Jerry Rau jumped aboard the back bay with Joe on Wednesday evening, popper-plugging seven stripers and a bluefish, and had other shots at the bass, very good fishing. Jersey Cape specializes in the popper fishing in the shallow flats of the bay, and will keep after the fish, but will turn attention to the migration of larger stripers and blues on the ocean as the run begins. Many dates are full for charters for the run, traditionally lasting through November and into December, peaking at Thanksgiving. Anglers should book quickly to ensure a date. A friend took a trip offshore that whaled 17 yellowfin tuna and three big mahi mahi at Wilmington Canyon from Sunday to Monday. The fish were axed on the overnight chunk, and the early morning was best. Looking ahead, see Jersey Cape’s <a href=" http://www.captainjoehughes.com/page4.html" target="_blank">traveling charters page</a> for info about annual trips to the Florida Keys this winter from Christmas to Easter. Reserve now, taking advantage of the best rates, like on airfare. Anglers can arrive at the Keys on a Friday evening, fish all day Saturday and part of Sunday, return Sunday evening, and be back to work Monday. The trips can be a mini, fish-filled vacation, for a large variety of catches from redfish to sailfish. Keep up on Joe’s fishing on <a href="http://captainjoehughes.blogspot.com" target="_blank">Jersey Cape’s blog</a>.
Lots of summer flounder, mostly shorts, but action, were plowed Sunday on the party boat <b>Porgy IV</b>, Capt. Paul said. A Research Set Aside Permit allows the vessel to sail for the fish during the currently closed flounder season. If anglers want to fish for flounder, trips will keep sailing for them. Paul will keep an eye on forecasts to see if the weather will allow trips to sail through the weekend. But starting on Tuesday, trips will begin sea bass fishing, because sea bass season opens that day. The Porgy IV sails at 8 a.m.
None of the boats will probably fish in the weather forecast for the weekend, said Capt. George from the <b>Heavy Hitter</b>. But maybe striped bass fishing will pick up because of the storm. His first striper fishing of the season aboard was slated for this coming week. Trips this time of year bunker chunk the fish on Delaware Bay. Call if interested in a trip.
<b>O-Beth Sportfishing Charters</b> is ready to launch striped bass trips for the season, Capt. Eric said. Anglers are supposed to sail for them aboard this weekend, but Eric will see what the weather brings. Stripers were just beginning to appear. One weekend date is open for the fishing in the near future. The trips will bunker chunk for the bass on Delaware Bay.
Charters for striped bass were supposed to kick off for the season this weekend with <b>Legal Limit Charters</b>, but the weather will probably cancel the fishing, Capt. T.J. said. He’d been down at the docks but heard nothing about the angling. On T.J.’s other boat, sailing from Tuckerton, lots of big tog snapped, and see the report above. Charters and <a href=" http://www.legallimitcharters.com/open-boat.php
" target="_blank">open-boat trips</a> are fishing.
Striped bass reportedly started to be beached from the surf at North Wildwood today, said Nick from <b>Hands Too Bait & Tackle</b>. A few shorts came from the Cape May surf lately, but the migration of stripers should roll in any time. A couple of bunker boaters talked about seeing lots on the ocean. Fairly good catches of stripers were reported from Bayshore Channel in close in 9 or 10 feet. Smaller chunks of bunker supposedly caught them better. Striper fishing should be going well in the back bay and at the inlets. Lots of tog gathered along the Cape May Inlet jetties and along the bridges. Fresh clams, fresh bunker, green crabs and eels are stocked.
