Much better day today! After a fishless day yesterday today just may be another one of those fish-on! days. With water temps still remain in the mid to low 50’s and schools of bait are still around, so the fish can’t be far behind. The trick to this late season fishing is to be there when something happens, not at home waiting for the phone to ring. Lure selections for big surf in your face conditions will be buck tails and heavy metals. The rest of the time, SP minnow style swimmers and rubber shad will fill the bill nicely… John Yac
The fall run is not over by a long shot! Yesterday proved that as clear as day. Bass from 10 lbs. to 30 lbs. attacked the local beaches from Lavallette to Seaside Park. They were gorging themselves on herring and bunker and taking just about everything thrown their way. How long this run will last is anyone’s guess, just when you think well that’s it, then you get a day like yesterday. So stay vigilant, this can be the longest fall season on record for our area… John Yac
There is still bass to be had for those who are willing to try. A keeper bass was taken Christmas eve on a swimming plug! So it’s not over till it’s over and who knows when that will be?… John Yac

Big Blues! No this is not a summer report but mid December!! Who would think we would be catching 10 lb. blues this time of the year, but it’s true. Several slammers made their way to the scales yesterday with the majority of them taken on cut bunker and mullet. Fisherman with surface poppers, swimmers and medals also joined in on the bite. No striped bass that we heard of being taken and the blues that were cleaned out back had sand eels in their stomachs… John Yac

All slot and short bass yesterday. Although there were no keeper bass that we heard of there was still plenty of action for those who were out fishing. Shorts to slot size bass were keeping anglers busy. SP minnow style swimmers, rubber shad and thin metals fished with teasers all were working on these fish. Cut bunker and clams remains you baits choice… John Yac
