Fishing Report

Rain gear day #2. We may be experiencing two rainy days in a row which we surly need but the fish are still here and willing to eat. Swimmers, poppers and metals all scored keeper bass yesterday in IBSP, no real monsters but very respectable fish never the less. Tomorrow is Dec. 1st already which puts us in the final countdown of the 2016 fall fishing season so stop making excuses and get out there… John Yac

Rain Gear Day! >> Mild air temperatures with rain on tap for us today so rain gear is a must when you head out. The bite has slowed quite a bit in the passed couple of days with first light and dusk being the prime times. Mid day tides have become hit and miss but in any case artificial lures have been out fishing bait. Poppers, swimmers and metals are still the way to go but a good idea would be to start adding teasers to your swimming and metal presentations. Fisherman have been finding sand eels in the stomachs of the bass being cleaned so a thin long teaser is the way to go. Not into plugging? Cut fresh bunker and clams remain tried and true baits for this time of the year… John Yac

The bite goes on! Yesterday was another good day in the surf. Keeper bass were being taken from Lavellette to IBSP. The schools of bunker remain on the move with hungry striped bass in hot pursuit. Rubber swim baits and SP style swimmers remain the number one choice of artificial lures. Poppers, metal lipped swimmers, darters and wide profile metals are also some good choices if the conditions allow. Cut bunker and clams will always be the fresh bait of choice. We have some nice live eels just to switch things up a bit… John Yac

Another great day in the books! The bass were spread out from Bay Head to the north thru IBSP. Pods of bunker seemed to be everywhere and where they were so were the fish. Rubber swim shads in all sizes and colors plus snag and drop were the hot methods yesterday. SP style minnows, metals and poppers will all also work. Today should be another good day with plenty of bait around and great weather, catch them up!! … John Yac

Happy Thanksgiving !! All the staff at The Dock whish all our loyal customers and friends a very Happy Thanksgiving. Fishing in the surf has slowed down a bit from the feverish pace of early in the week. It’s a matter of finding the bait in close and you’ll be into fish. Stick with your poppers, swimmers and rubber swim shad baits for these are what’s producing in the artificial department. Cut bunker remains the number one fresh bait, but it doesn’t hurt to drown a few clams either… John Yac

Another great day in the books. The fish were a little more concentrated yesterday but when you found them you were in. IBSP was the hot spot yesterday both mid day and again after dark. Once again just about anything you tossed worked but rubber swim shads were the hot item of the day. The bait of choice remains cut bunker and be prepared to snag both peanuts and adult bunker when the conditions are right… John Yac

EPIC DAY!! >> Is the only way to describe yesterday’s surf bite. Large schools of bait were pinned to the shore line by jumbo blues and keeper bass. This action was going on from Manasquan Inlet to IBSP. If you didn’t fish yesterday you missed one of the hottest surf fishing days in recent memory. Snag and drop with full size and peanut size bunker was doing the trick on the bait side. Large pencil and polaris style poppers along with SP style swimmers and rubber swim baits all were hooking up yesterday. If today turns out to be only half as good as yesterday it will still go down as one you will be talking about for a while… John Yac

The surf bite is on! Yesterday’s catches in the surf supports that statement. Double digit weighing blues along with nice mid size keeper bass were crashing a variety of artificial lures being thrown at them. All types of poppers, SP style swimmers, buck tails and rubber swim shads were all catching. Cut bunker also accounted for a couple of nice bass. The bulk of the action was from Seaside Hights thru IBSP… John Yac

Some slammer blues moved into our area yesterday just to make things interesting for the snag and drop and trolling guys. Huge schools of bunker in close seem to be attracting tackle busters along with some nice keeper bass. Poppers seem to be the go to lure when anglers are on these fish and don’t want to throw bait, mean while, SP style swimmers are accounting for some nice fish off the beach… John Yac

That’s a little better! Yesterday in the middle of the day, as the extra low tide approached, the bass turned on within casting range. The bulk of the action was between Ortley and Seaside Hights. Poppers, swimmers, buck tails and rubber shad all were scoring on a nice school of keeper bass. The fish seemed to just appear in the heavy surf with no school of bait visible. Yesterday’s action just supports my theory that you have to get off the couch, grab your rod and work the shoreline. For tis the season, and you can’t catch fish from home, no matter how hard you try!… John Yac
