Short striped bass continue to entertain anglers willing to brave the elements. Yes short striped bass with a keeper now and then are still available along our coastline if you are willing to dress properly and fish smart. Long bombing casts with large rods are not necessary this time of year, concentrate your efforts in close, work the drop off and cuts throughly with smaller rods and sand eel style lures. These are the same locations to fish your clams and cut baits. Don’t forget to check out our great Holiday Sales in our previous reports, great ideas for those anglers in your lives! John Yac

The search goes on for a keeper bass! It seems like no matter where you fish lately you see bait and birds picking here and there but no keeper size bass in the mix. The are plenty of shorts to go around though and they are really short. So keep throwing those thin metals and SP style minnows both with sand eel style teasers of course and you never know there still may be a few quality fish in the mix. For all you black fish anglers we have a fresh supply of green crabs! John Yac

Small fish seems to to be the word of the day. The past couple of days have produced a steady catch of short striped bass with a few keepers here and there. Weather and ocean conditions are very fishable just too few keepers to go around. The method to catching these fish hasen’t changed much, Avas or any thin metal, needle fish and SP style minnows all fished with sand eel style teasers is still the way to go. Clams and cut bunker will also work when fish are present, due to their ability to draw fish in. John Yac
