The temperature is slowly creeping in the right direction and there have been some short bass along with a few keepers mixed in caught in the RT 37 bridge area. The fish are taking small jigs and swimmers. As for bait fishing blood worms is always a great choice this time of year. The shop and Café hours remain the same for now and will probably in crease as we get into April, but for now 7:30 AM to 2:00 PM Thursday thru Sunday is the schedule.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all our friends and customers!!!
Some shorts were around yesterday and metal and teasers seemed to be what they wanted. The shop and cafe will be open tomorrow from 7 – 2:30 so stop in and take advantage of our Holiday sales.
First day of winter? The calendar says so, but not the temperature! They are still catching small bass in the Lavallette and Ortley beach areas. Small metals with teasers along with small swimming plugs are doing the trick. So if your not willing to pack it in yet, gab your rod and give it one more try! The shop and cafe will be open Christmas eve from 7:00 AM till 3:00 PM, so stop buy enjoy a great breakfast or lunch to keep you going for that last minute shopping. John Yac
Some steady action yesterday just north of Seaside Hights around mid day! Mixed in with a bunch of short bass were a few keepers, one of which was taken by the shop’s Phil Dirt who along with his good buddy Al enjoyed some late season action. The fish were taking small metals, rubber sand eel imitations and small swimming plugs. The warmer weather forecasted for the next few days will make this late season bite a lot more enjoyable. The shop hours for Sat. Dec. 20th thru Tues. Dec. 24th is as follows. Sat. 7:30AM to 5:00PM, Sun. 8:00AM to 5:00PM, Mon. 9:00AM to 5:00PM and Tues. 7:00AM to 3:00PM. John Yac
