The first striped bass
of fall, this 10-pounder,
was plugged and checked-in
from Brigantine’s surf on Sept. 22
at Riptide Bait & Tackle
on the island . Okay, that
was the final day of summer.
But, you know.

Open-boat trips
and charters on
the Hi Flier, Barnegat,
live grass-shrimped weakfish,
like this one, snapper blues,
silver perch, sand sharks,
fluke, juvenile sea bass
and more from Barnegat Bay.
The shrimping’s got
lots of history on the bay,
and if you’ve never done it,
it’s something, Hi Flier reported.

Remnants of Hurricane Florence
blow offshore on Sept. 18.
Photo from Riptide
Bait & Tackle, Brigantine.
That was some stretch
of weather. Remnants of
Tropical Storm Gordon arrived
on Sept. 8 for a few
days. Weather then calmed
for about a day, and then
effects of this hurricane began,
not ending until Sept. 19.
New Jersey’s coastal
anglers tried to dodge
wind, seas and rain
for about 10 days.

Hooked up with
a king or Chinook salmon
on upstate N.Y.’s Salmon River
with Jay Peck Guide Service.

Squirts of the fish
were expected to migrate up
the river in low temperatures
in mornings. The run
then usually quickly amp up
as weather cools, and
peaks in the next weeks.

Wonder whether mahi mahi
remained during all the
stormy weather in
mid-September? They sure did.
Manicsportfishing, Keyport, loaded
up on them, small ones,
in 100 to 200 feet of
water on Sept. 16 on livelined
peanut bunker and cast
swim shads. Bigger were
heard about to the southeast
aboard that day, but were
too far away.

Fluking was a little
better on this day
in mid-September on the
ocean aboard,
Parker Pete’s Fishing
Charters, Belmar, reported.
A trip that day picked
a few good-sized to just
under 8 pounds. The boat
was weathered out
the next day, once again.

Pompano, lots, schooled
Brigantine's surf a while now,
Riptide Bait & Tackle
in the town reported.
The fish are reportedly
good-eating, the store said,
and a bucket of them
could be caught in one
throw of a castnet.
Or the fish could be hooked
on small pieces of bait.
