Florida fishing is insane,
Manicsportfishing
from Keyport, N.J.,
who’s fishing from
Marathon in the Florida
Keys for winter, said.
That’s one of the
amberjack --
sizable, powerful fish --
that Manic hooks on
livelined baitfish
at wrecks like
200 feet deep.

Weather is frankly
windy in Florida
in winter, Manic said.
Sometimes the weather
is insane. But so is
the fishing. People still
jump aboard in the weather,
because they’re on
vacation, and they catch.
Those are yellowtail snappers
that bite at patch reefs
2 or 3 miles from
the dock, inshore of
the main reef.

A barracuda aboard.
All kinds of catches
are available, also including
mutton snappers, pompano,
cobia, cero mackerel,
king mackerel and more.

Open-boat
blackfishing
on South Jersey’s
Stray Cat from Longport
last weekend.
Visit Stray Cat's
website.

Plenty of crabs
were aboard for bait,
and the next open
trips were expected
to sail for the tog
in mid-January.
Weather had been warm,
but the cold now
should make them chew,
Stray Cat said.

“Lingering legacy
from fall,” Jay Peck
Guide Service’s Facebook
page said. That’s a
salmon carcass along
one of the upstate N.Y.
rivers that Peck and
his guides were fishing
for big brown trout
and for steelheads. “The
impact these fish (the
salmon) have on the
rivers lingers throughout
the year,” the page said.

Fiddler crabs
scurried around the marsh
near Atlantic City, George Horvath
from Trenton said during
early January. Photo from him.
He also saw two egrets
hunting them. When will
winter start? he asked.

on the ocean.

Fishing Charters'
website.

Individual-reservation trips
were going to keep sailing
for them on weekends
until the tog stopped biting.
If you have a few anglers,
contact the captain, and
he’ll get more anglers and
put a trip together.

Wha’? Striped bass?
This late? You bet.
From the ocean on Jan. 6
with Jersey Cape Guide
Service, Sea Isle City.
Visit Jersey Cape
Guide Service's website.

A bunch of the stripers
to 20 pounds were jigged
aboard the trip.
Visit Jersey Cape
Guide Service's website.

The ocean was
47 degrees, warmer than
previously, and warm enough
for good striper fishing.
Lots of birds including
gannets worked baitfish
along the water.
See shots below
of previous fishing aboard
that cauught them, too.

Guide Service's website.

Cod fishing
picked up on Jan. 4
on the party boat
Captain Al from Point Lookout,
Long Island, N.Y.
The fish bit
in the shallows, like they
usually do at first in winter.
As the ocean becomes
colder, the cod usually
school deeper water
that’s warmer.
See more about
Captain Al.

The boat is one of the few
that’s been cod fishing
in winter for years
from Long Island. Don’t delay
a trip. This time of
year can fish best.

Captain Al.

What one angler
from One Stop
Bait & Tackle,
Atlantic City, N.J.,
does this time of year:
fishes from the Keys!

Headed for
winter blackfishing
on the ocean on the party boat
Big Mohawk, Belmar.
Visit Big Mohawk's
website.

The fishing was good,
the boat reported.
Visit Big Mohawk's
website.

Jigs caught well,
but on days when
wind prevented fishing
with jigs, rigs hooked
quite a few.
Trips were blackfishing daily.
