Fishing Report

There were fish before the snow yesterday, lets see what today brings! The weather will warm over the next few days sparking the urge to fish in those anglers who never say die. Remember think “thin” when selecting something to throw and teasers never hurt this time of year… John Yac

The pick goes on! Still small bass in the surf for those willing to fish for them. Even the boat guys willing to travel a little south of Barnegat Inlet are still scoring some keeper bass. The snow in the forecast later today may put a damper on things but that will remain to be seen. Remember 9 more shopping days till Christmas! Our store wide sale is a great place to find that special gift for that special angler in your life. If you can’t decide, or know exactly what he or she needs, a store gift card is hard to beat. These cards will get you an additional 20% on the amount purchased… John Yac

The few brave souls that ventured out yesterday in the surf were rewarded with some hot short bass action! Birds were diving like crazy, wales were feeding and short bass in the teen to 20 inch class were on the feed. Rubber sand eel imitations still lead the way but they are not the only way to hook up with these hungry fish. Thin ava style metals with teasers up front or just about any sand eel jig lure will work… John Yac

Make sure you bring a couple extra layers of clothing with you today before you go out to play. The wind will be at your back but the air temps are still a bit chilly. But keep in mind there are plenty of small bass to keep you warm! Sand eel lures have been the number one fish catcher namely the Tsunami Pro Holographic eel packed 4 to a package, we are selling them for $4.99 a pack while supplies last. But don’t overlook the thin the metal teaser combo either, for this set up is also catching… John Yac

The great snow storm has passed! But the short bass bite didn’t skip a beat. Yes there were fish taken yesterday by a few hardy souls fishing IBSP. A few fish were in the 20 inch class and several of them were taken by fly fisherman in close on long streamer style flies. How’s that for dedication! The beat goes on for those who just will not quit trying! John Yac

Snow may be coming, but the bass could care less! The bite of small bass seems to be increasing. Judging from what seems to be selling, we have a rush on Tsunami holographic weighted eels, this can only mean one thing, SAND EELS!! This means the bass will be around well passed Christmas if past records mean anything. SP style swimmers and thin ava style metals both fished with teasers out front are always a good bet when small baits and sand eels are present… John Yac

Good day yesterday! With the wind at your back and your artificial lures sailing out just that little further, anglers were finding themselves in the strike zone of some feisty short bass. Along with the action came that occasional keeper just keep everyone interested! The bait guys were also getting in on the day’s action, but the lion’s share of the fish were taken by the plug guys. It looks like today will be more of the same, with the air temps being just a little cooler, but the winds will still be at your back and a little slower… John Yac

Fishing Report

Like I have been saying, there are still a few keeper bass around for those of us who don’t want to put the rods away just yet. SP minnows by far will out fish any swimming plugs in it’s class, especially in our area for some unexplained reason. Second choice would be a swim shad followed by a wider profile metal. Bait is bait, cut bunker and clams will always be the one two punch in that department. Live eels are walking the line between artificial lures and natural baits, fished both live and rigged with both ways being deadly on big bass in the right locations and at the right times… John Yac

Fishing Report

There is still some nice keeper bass mixed in with all those shorts! So don’t put those rods away just yet! We have fresh bunker and live eels for your late season adventures. Don’t forget our Store wide Christmas Sale is underway including a 20% increase in value on all gift cards purchased between now and Christmas. Make the Dock Outfitters your first stop when your are looking for that perfect gift for that special angler in your life.
