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.

The Vitamin Sea,
Keyport, was expected
to be splashed during
the third week of March
for the fishing season.
Charters and open-boat
trips for striped bass on
Raritan Bay would be first up,
and some popular dates
were still available.
They do fill, so don’t
hesitate to book.

It begins! That’s a
45-inch striped bass
that was hooked from
the bay between Ocean
City and Somers Point before
the nor’easter on March 7 to 8
on a cast pink Zoom.
That is the year’s first
large striper reported
on this website, and the
angler also landed two
other stripers on the trip.
This shot and the
next are from One Stop
Bait & Tackle in Atlantic City’s

Here’s a 31-incher
checked in at the shop
days afterward. The fish bit
a bloodworm in a bay

March was off
to a good start for
steelheading in upstate N.Y.,
Jay Peck Guide Service
reported. This one
swiped an egg fly.

Jay Peck.

A stonefly hooked
this one. Peck lately fished
Salmon River and rivers
and creeks two hours west,
around Rochester, wherever
fished best on a given day.

The angling only lasts
until April sometime. The
spawn in rivers and creeks
and then return to
Lake Ontario for summer.

Amberjacks began to bite
like they do this time of
year for Captain Easy Charters from
Islamorada in the Florida Keys.
The sizable, powerful fish are
found at places like the
Islamorada Hump, an underwater
mound that rises 290 feet from
bottom in 600 feet of water,
11 miles from shore.

Charters' website.

The year's third striped bass,
this 29-inch 9-1/2-pounder,
was brought to Absecon Bay
Sportsman Center, Absecon, on
March 7, the day before the
second nor'easter in less than
a week. The fish was hooked
"up the river,"
the shop reported.

Sportsman Center's

The angler won the annual
$50 gift certificate to the
store for the third, and more
prizes remained up for grabs,
including for the year's first
that are heavier than
20 and 30 pounds,
and more.
See the prizes.

A striped bass from the
Toms River. This shot and the
next two are from Murphy's
Hook House in the town of
Toms River. Fishing for throwback
stripers was fabulous in the
river, mostly at night, somewhat
in early mornings and in
evenings. The one above might've
been a keeper. Bloodworms and
rubber shads, like from Kettle
Creek, hooked them.

Hook House's

White perch from the river.
Fishing for them was decent,
better than usual.

And a winter flounder
from the river. That
was a keeper.
Not a lot was heard
about flounder from the
river yet, maybe because
of cold water.
