Blackfishing
on the ocean
on South Jersey’s
Stray Cat from Longport.
Visit Stray Cat's
website.

The tautog chewed,
chewed, chewed on this trip,
a report said from the vessel.
Open-boat trips
are blackfishing daily
until the tog season
is closed beginning May 1.

website.

Water was 48 degrees,
22 degrees colder
than last year, at a
beaver pond, and fishing
was the worst, George Horvath
from Trenton said. He managed
to catch and release
this 8-3/4-inch bluegill
on the trip.

Upstate New York’s
tributaries including
Salmon River
ran high and cold,
but steelheads swam the
water, Jay Peck Guide
Service reported. Like New Jersey’s
fishing, the angling was
running somewhat late
because of chilly weather.

This one bit
an egg-sucking leach fly.
Some of the steelheads
were in peak spawn,
and some were poised
to spawn soon. Angling
for them lasts into
post spawn, when steelheads
drop back to the lake
to spend summer. Peck thinks
good angling for them
should last into May,
including for drop-backs
on the rivers.
But don’t delay.

This one grabbed an egg fly.
Peck specializes in fly-fishing
and books trips that
fish with conventional
tackle with his other guides.
The fishing is world-class.

Raritan Bay’s
striped bass fishing
was off to an excellent
start with the Down Deep
Fleet, Keyport, a
report said from Down Deep.

Sportfishing's website.

The fish to 42 inches,
many bagged, many released,
were hooked on clams
and rubber shads,
a little on the troll.

daily, and charters are
available for up to
15 passengers.

A 38-pound striped bass
from Raritan Bay on Wednesday
with Fin-Taz-Tic Sportfishing,
Highlands. The trip limited out
by 9 a.m. on trolled Mojos,
and played catch and release
with more afterward.
Last weekend was fully
booked aboard. Space was
available for open-boat trips
late this week.

Finally, a striper
from Brigantine’s surf,
on April 18. This shot and
the next from Riptide
Bait & Tackle
on the island.

Bait & Tackle's

The fish was a 22-inch
throwback, but a start.

Blackfishing on the ocean
on the party boat
Porgy IV, Cape May.
Visit Porgy IV's
website.

A few of the tautog
were socked aboard,
and the water was cold.
The surface was 45 degrees,
“and here we are 18
days into April,” a report
said last Wednesday, April 18,
from the boat. Blackfish season
is only open in April and
closes beginning May 1.

website.

The vessel is blackfishing daily,
and telephone ahead
to confirm a trip has
the weather to sail.

was off to as good
a beginning as it gets,
a report said from
the Vitamin Sea, Keyport,
on April 19.
Visit Vitamin Sea's
website.

Trips limited out
and released many
additional, catching on
bait, rubber shads and
on the troll.
