Today was just too nice a morning to stay at home. I stopped off for some bunker and went to a spot in Surf City. Boy was I glad I did! I caught this 37.5 inch striper that weighed in

Five blues that I know of were caught off the sod banks on Iowa Avenue in Great Bay yesterday (Saturday 5/12). They were in the eight pound range. I think they have finally arrived in Great Bay.

On the Beach by Donna Harris

Lots of anglers on the beach this weekend. Went out Saturday afternoon mid island and caught this very short striper that will live to see another day. I think some of the white perch I’ve caught are close to this

The Bay Blues are Back

Headed out a bit late this morning to, once again, troll for the allusive bay blues. Went to the Gulf Point Bay, the area between Gulf Point and the Barnegat Condos. I started the troll in overcast weather with south

Sunday I went fishing on the Carolyn Anne for Tog. A light crowd, nice weather and smooth seas made for a fine day. After witnessing a 9 lb and 8 lb Tog come aboard, I cast aside Bob Misak’s jigging

Ed Valitutto and I made a very cold ride in my boat to the Oyster Creek power plant outflow to do some striper fishing. We marked schools of fish hugging the bottom in the creek and I kept feeling hits

I noticed that the snook were taking small glass minnows at night under the green light at our condo fishing pier here in Florida. When I was shopping at Walmart I saw these small crappie jigs. First 2 casts last

Nice Catch in Florida

Jim Hutchinson Sr and his wife spend the winter down in Pine Island Florida near Ft Myers. On a recent trip, they caught a lot of smaller fish along with two nice keepers – a sheepshead and a black drum.

Fishing Facts

Of the fifty United States, thirty-eight have a striped-bass record. New Jersey has the largest striped-bass record—a 78-pound 8·ounce whopper that was caught in 1982. The state with the smallest striped-bass record is Iowa. That landlocked striper weighed only 9 pounds 4 ounces and was caught in 1983.
There’s something fishy about beer these days. Fish Tail Ale is popular as ever, and New Jersey’s Flying Fish Brewery is one of the state’s largest specialty breweries. There’s also Washington’s Wild Salmon Organic Pale Ale, Florida’s Land Shark beer, Delaware’s Dogfish Head beer, and two versions of Stingray beer—a lighter version from the Cayman Islands and a dark beer from Canada.
The triangle fly is probably the most unusual of saltwater flies. It’s one of the few, if not only, flies tied to a treble hook. It’s also barely a fly at all, because hardly any material is used. It is complete after tying the two straw pearl twinkle flashes and the tiny tuft of natural squirrel, leaving an entire hook fully exposed. Incredibly this barebacked treble fly is a knockout when it comes to sea trout.
