The party boat Jamaica II,
Brielle, was in the yard, Yank's
in Tuckerton, a moment to be
painted and spiffed up for
spring and summer.

A couple of trips
plowed good sailfishing
with Captain Easy Charters
from Islamorada in the
Florida Keys just offshore
of the reef a few miles
from port.
Visit Captain Easy
Charters' website.

The trips also
tugged up mutton snappers,
including this one, vermilion
snappers and yellowtail snappers.
The muttons and vermilions
pounced on live bait along
bottom in deeper
water at wrecks. The yellowtails
nibbled cut bait in a chum
slick at the reef.

George Horvath from Trenton
released six white perch
and two yellow perch at
Carnegie Lake. He saw four
other anglers, an osprey,
some cormorants and a
blue heron catch fish on
the trip, too!

The Sour Kraut from
Leonardo was undergoing
a few touches of maintenance
and would probably begin
the year’s fishing during
April’s second week. The
first charters and open-boat
trips fish for striped bass
on Raritan Bay.

Steelhead fishing
on Lake Ontario's tributaries
in upstate New York with
Jay Peck Guide Service.
See more about
Jay Peck.

Both of these
steelheads grabbed stoneflies
that become abundant
in late winter and
early spring. Steelheads would
spawn in the tributaries
soon and then return
to Lake Ontario to
spend summer. Don’t delay
fishing for them.

A barracuda during
the angling. The trips
fish every year from
Christmas to Easter.
Afterward, Jersey Cape
turns all attention to fishing
from Sea Isle for catches
including striped bass,
bluefish and big, tiderunner
weakfish on the back bay.
By tax day, April 15,
all heck breaks loose
with that fishing.

Contrary to reports,
northern pike fishing
was consistent on
Passaic River, Andrew Yutko,
who sent these shots, said.
He and a friend waxed the
fish the past three weeks,
he wrote on March 22
in an email.

The river ran high,
but with effort,
plenty of shoreline
could be found to fish.
The pike measured
up to 35 inches, and they
caught as many as 11
in a 4-hour trip.

The water was 40 degrees,
and that had the
pike feeding before the
spawn, Yutko said. Some
might’ve already spawned,
but most seemed “fat
and ready,” he said. They
hooked most on
live bait, and occasionally
clocked them on jerk
baits or swim baits.
