Back bay remains good.

Back bay remains good with small bass. Plugs, Gliders, Kettle Creek Shads, and Worms are all producing fish. The big surprise the past couple days has been the reports of Bluefish in the bay. One of our customers came in Thursday night showing us pictures of Bluefish in the 5-6lb range he caught on one of the local docks on bait. Even had a couple customers come in and replace plastics that got bitten in half. Very surprising but every year its different. Water temps are still cold but maybe these guys stuck around and haven’t left?? We’ll see if we hear anything more in the coming days. The wind has been pretty difficult the past couple days . Nothing from the surf yet but it wouldn’t surprise me if we have a few smaller bass out there. If we can keep this semi warm weather around everything should develop nicely. We have plenty of Salted Clams, Blood Worms, and all the frozen bait you need.

The NEW ODM Evolution Blanks are now in stock! They come in a 10′ 3/4-5oz and a 11′ 1-6oz. One of the nicest rod blanks we’ve ever seen. Everything about these blanks is perfect. Come see Bob in the evening if you’re interested in us making one for you. We also have the full line-up of ODM Factory Rods.

Back bay starting to heat up..

Decent amount of reports coming in the past few days from the back and the bass are starting to spread throughout the bay. Believe it or not most of the reports we’ve been getting have been on gliders and plugs. We’ve had some guys do well on blood worms if you want to bait and wait. We’re expecting another delivery of Blood Worms Friday afternoon. These sunny days are start to warm the waters up and it’s just a matter of time until we start hearing of some fish out front. The real encouraging thing had been the reports of bunker out front already. We had several customers tell us about washed up bunker on the beach.. Things are slowly coming together. We’re going to stay on our winter hours until early April which is 7am-7pm everyday. Weekend weather is looking pretty good. Might be worth a shot out front. Never know!

Blood Worms expected Wednesday afternoon!

Blood Worms are expected Wednesday afternoon! The cold weather doesn’t want to leave us right now! Still have some guys hitting the bay even with the cold temps and it’s a slow pick of Small Bass and Winter Flounder. Nothing special yet but that should change as we get deeper into this month.

So much has come in the past few days as we get ready for the Spring.. Grump was going nuts Tuesday! Van Staal Pliers, Reels, and Offshore Jigging Rods. We also got in orders from Rod Geek Blanks and Tony Maja Products (Bunker Spoons, Rods, and Accessories). The $10 Wooden Poppers are back from Tsunami! We have a Full rack right when you walk in the door. Not going to last long. The shop is looking good!

Bob is going nuts in the Rod Building department. The NEW ODM Evolution Blanks should be here soon. He’s already taken 8 orders in the past 2 days for these rods. If you are interested come see Bob! Don’t want to wait for a custom?? We also have the full line up of ODM Factory rods. ODM Rods is quickly taking over the surf market. The quality of these rods are superb.. There’s 4 models we carry in the shop. DNA Series, Genesis Series, Frontier X Series, and the Nex-1 Series. Prices start at $249.99. Come see us and don’t be afraid to ask questions!

Open 7am-7pm EVERYDAY!

Come on mother nature!

Mother Nature hasn’t been very kind to us so far this month! Some nasty weather tonight and tomorrow. We’ll be open as always if anyone wants to stop in.

Yesterday was the BSC Flea Market. The show was excellent as always. The show season is over and now we can focus on gearing the shop up for the upcoming season.. The fishing in the back has been hit and miss. Few guys are doing well with the small bass on worms and small plugs like the Rapala X-raps and smaller SP Minnows. Hopefully we can break this weather and start to warm these water temps. I was able to talk to our worm guy Sunday. Next Delivery should be mid week. The upcoming storm has screwed everything up for the worm diggers. We’ll update when we get more. We’ll remain on our winter hours until early April. 7am-7pm EVERYDAY!

The BSC Flea Market is on March 3rd!

The BSC Flea Market is on March 3rd from 9am-2pm at the Toms River Intermediate NORTH School on 150 Intermediate North Way Toms River, NJ. We’ll be there with some awesome deals. This show is always a great time!

Our plan is to get Blood Worm for the back bay opening day of Winter Flounder and Bass which is on March 1st. This is typically the kick off of the Spring season! We’ll also have plenty of Clam Chum logs and Salted Clams. Hopefully mother nature is a little nicer to us this March. We’ve been staying very busy at the shop getting ready for the upcoming season. Lots of orders have been coming in and more are on the way. We can’t wait for the season to get here. We look forward to seeing everyone soon!!!

We’re open 7am-7pm EVERYDAY!
