March is the
cruelest Month, Absecon Bay
Sportsman Center,
Absecon, reported
after a nor’easter, the
third in 10 days, on
March 13. That’s snow on
the docks at the store
from the storm.
An almost identical shot
is posted below from
the previous one
of the storms.

But weather was
sometimes better afterward,
and this couple stopped
by for supplies to fish
for throwback striped bass
on Mullica River.

They landed a dozen,
and said bloodworms
from the store hooked
the fish, and that the
bass refused to bite
soft-plastic lures.
Another nor'easter, and maybe
snow, was forecast for
this week!

A big, “flag”
yellowtail snapper with
Captain Easy Charters,
Islamorada, Florida Keys.
Yellowtail fishing was
good aboard at the reef
a few miles from port.
That’s on Captain Easy’s
larger boat for charters
on the ocean side.

Charters' website.

Tarpon fishing
was lighting up
near bridges for charters
on the company’s smaller
boat, a 27-foot Conch
center console, named
the Easy Does It. Sharks were
in the mix there, and this
was fun fishing for families
who wanted to stay
closer to shore. But
hardcore anglers love
the tarpon fishing, too.

Charters' website.

That’s a mutton snapper
from the ocean side.
They attack livelined
bait at deep wrecks.
Trips on the ocean side
are also fighting
king mackerel, sailfish, blackfin
tuna, mahi mahi
and amberjacks.

The Norma-K III,
Point Pleasant Beach,
was in dry dock for
maintenance to prepare for
spring fishing, including
painting the hull.

enlarge it, and you can
see that this is before
the final painting.

Here the paint
has been applied.
The crew hoped
the boat would resume
fishing a couple of weeks later.

was slow on the ocean
on the party boat
Point Pleasant Beach,
but scooped up cod --
some good-sized keepers
and some throwbacks – and
ling, decent-sized. A few
of the trips sailed between
rough weather. Above,
cod aboard.
Visit Dauntless's

The trip shown
in these photos fished better
in beautiful weather. Fifteen
keeper cod, including this
one, 20 throwbacks and
a handful of ling
were cranked in.

That’s one of the ling
at left. The boat is
one of the only, if not
the only, that’s scheduled
to fish daily all year long.
Trips bottom-fish
7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Tarpon from annual
traveling charters
to the Florida Keys
that Jersey Cape Guide
Service, Sea Isle City,
runs in winter.

Guide Service's

The trips fish
from Christmas to Easter
and also target a
large variety of other
species including
redfish, speckled sea trout,
permit, snappers, jacks,
sharks and more.

After Easter, Jersey Cape
focuses on Jersey fishing
from Sea Isle, first for
striped bass on the
back bay. By tax day, April 15,
big bluefish tear into
the bay. At that time
of year, catches can
include blues, stripers,
weakfish and summer flounder
on the bay, sometimes
all on one trip. That’s
one of the best times
of year for fishing aboard.
The flounder are
out-of-season until a
little later in the year
and are released.
