Fishing Report

Sharpen your hooks, things could be about to pop! There were a couple of nice bass taken in IBSP yesterday on clams and one topped the scales at 27 plus pounds, now that’s what I’m talking about. Clams are not the only way to temp these bass to take the hook. Swimming plugs and metal will also work if presented correctly in the right locations and at the right times. So don’t just sit there and read the reports, get out there and catch some fish of your own… John Yac

Nice weekend ahead, with some good weather and winds in the forecast, maybe some fish??? This fall run is sure testing everyone’s patience and mother nature isn’t helping much either, but patience and perseverance will pay off, you’ll see. Nice fresh clams, live eels and sand worms will be ready to go for some possible weekend action… John Yac

Rain is one thing but lightning is a No No! Rain gear will keep you dry for the most part but nothing protects you from mother nature but common sense. Keep your rods in the buggy and stay off the beaches till all sigs of lightning is gone. There has been cases where anglers sitting in their buggy’s waiting for the storm to pass have been struck by lightning, so why take the chance? No fish no matter how big is worth your life or the life of a loved one or friend! Strong NE winds turning NW tomorrow will have the surf churned up so big sticks, heavy sinkers and clams will be your best bet. Heavy metals and bottle plugs are a great alternative if you don’t want to bait fish…. John Yac

Not much new on the fishing front to report. Still some small blues here and there but no run of bass to speak of, but that could change any day. It’s a matter of staying vigilant so you will be there when the run starts. The few short to keeper size bass that are being taken are at first light and at dusk. Clams seem to be the number producer but a few have been taken on small swimmers. We have Penn Spinfisher V Live Liners back in stock. Remember we have live eels and sand worms for a change of pace!… John Yac

Nice stretch of weather forecasted for the next two days. Ocean temps are down a bit and we still have bait in close, small blues are still around with reports of short to keeper size bass increasing daily. A couple of nice bass were taken yesterday trolling MAJA bunker spoons off the IBSP bathing beaches. Mullet and clams, poppers, swimmers and metals are the tools of the trade. Looking for Tony MAJA spoons, rods, outriggers, lines etc.? We have it all and at great prices too! … John Yac

The clock is ticking! Half of October gone and still no Striped bass to speak of. It’s starting to look like one of those late in the year striped bass runs where you just have enough time to choke down your Thanksgiving day meal before you head back to the beach because the big boys are on the feed! The weather this weekend should give us more favorable winds with a cleaner surf out front. Clams, swimmers and thin metals should be your baits of choice when looking for those elusive striped bass. We must have patience, they’re coming! … John Yac

Rain gear this morning but you might be able to peel things of by afternoon. While we still wait on the southward bass migration we still have plenty of small blues around to take up our time. Mullet remains the bait of choice for these little guys while poppers, small swimmers and thin metals will fill in your artificial selection nicely.

Are your reels and rods ready for the fall? You still have time to get your reels serviced, a guide or tip replaced or just add a new outfit to your collection. Have us service your reel and get 25% off a spool up of the line of your choice. Select from a multi brand selection of surf and boat rods and take advantage of our 20% off selected rods in stock! The clock is ticking, no excuses… John Yac

Summer? Fall? you pick, and if your confused, so are the fish. Striped bass in our area sensing that the water temps are still too warm to start them on their fall run and feeding frenzie, remain in a holding pattern regardless of the calendar date. Thank God for the small blues keeping the anglers busy till things return to normal. The southerly winds of the next few days should bring down the water temps a bit and maybe get things started. Till then it’s a waiting game we’re all too familiar with… John Yac

I think the temperatures are going in the wrong direction for this time of year. Blues are still around like it’s late summer, mullet, rainfish, and bunker are all present, but the bass are just not on the feed, at least off the surf in our area that is. Some short to keeper size bass are being reported from the surf here and there but none have hit our scales as of yet. Cut bunker and mullet are still the top choices for the bluefish, while clams and bunker will do nicely for the bass. On the artificial side of the coin, poppers and small metals for the blues with swimmers and thin metals rigged with teasers will turn the head of a feeding bass… John Yac
