12/19 Thursday–Great fishing again.

The fishing remains very good in the area right now. Jim Mathis sent us a pic of a beautiful 32″ Bass he caught down in the park. The Bass are mostly all schoolie size but we are hearing of some keeper size fish here and there. Dress warm and break out a lighter rod. Colder weather ahead but Westerly winds for the next 4 days.

12/18 Wednesday– Really good fishing right now

The run is still going strong if you didn’t put the poles away! There wasn’t a lot of guys out but we had some really good reports come in. Seems the Kettle Creek Shads are getting more attention than metals at the moment. Store regular Marty Farrel reported over 20 bass to 24″ on Kettle creek shads. He also reported a couple shads being bit off! Bluefish??? Wouldn’t be a first to have Blues in December but still cool to see. Break out a lighter rod and go have some fun. We have everything you need.

12/17 Tuesday– Thank you!

We want to thank everyone that came out for the 2nd Annual Grumpy Santa Charity Event for St. Judes. Huge success and lots of happy faces! We raised over $1400 in 2 days! We had a lot of people call that couldn’t make it but wanted to donate. We’ll accept donations until Friday 12/20. You made us smile and you made a child in need smile. From all of us at Grumpys, THANK YOU!

The fishing remain the same! Lots of small fish up and down but we did hear of some nicer fish Monday. A few close to that 28″ mark. Metal and teasers or the Tsunami/Bill Hurley Eel is all you really need right now. With the way the weather has been I expect this type of fishing to only continue. If you like good fishing and less people on the beach this is your type of fishing.

Our hours of operation will remain 430am-10pm through December 23th! We’ll be open 430am- 2pm Christmas Eve and be closed Christmas Day. We’ll be switching to our winter hours (7am-7pm everyday) on December 26th till April.

Good reports again from the surf. Conditions weren’t the best in the morning but we had plenty of fish reported again. Afternoon was a little better. Size of the fish is still ranging from 18″-25″.

Fishing report– Another good morning in the surf. In the evening it was much slower but that was mostly due to the weather. We’ll see what this weekend brings but the fish are still here if you want to fish. Some could argue this is the best it’s been so far this Fall.

12/13 Friday–Still good!

The fishing remains good! It hasn’t changed much. Heard of a lot of nice catches once again. Some had over 20 fish. AVA’s, Teasers, Tsunami/Bill Hurley Eels remain your best bet. Work the surf until you find them. I expect it to only continue into Friday. Weather looks decent.

12/12 Thursday– Fantastic reports yet again..

Winter is settling in but someone tell the Bass! Some of the best fishing of the season is going on right now. It’s still quantity over quality but there is some keeper fish around if that’s what you’re looking for. Not a lot of guys out again but the reports were coming in. Down size your gear if you want to have fun. Shell E. Caris told us he has 25 bass to 24″ with double headers all in the snow Wednesday morning. Tsunami Eels on a smaller rod was producing. Most of the reports came from the Seaside to IBSP Surf. Weather is looking good for Thursday. I expect this to only continue…

12/11 Wednesday

The weather held most back Tuesday but we did hear of more bass by the anglers that went out. Everything we heard was schoolie size. We’re at that time of the year where there’s more fish than fisherman! Weather for Wednesday is calling for some snow in the morning but the winds look good. All Fresh bait deliveries are done for the season. We’re going to stay on our normal business hours of 430am-10pm. Our Winter hours are going to start the day after Christmas which will be 7am-7pm Everyday!

12/10 Tuesday– Nasty weather but good fishing!

The crummy weather on Monday held most back but the anglers that hit the surf were rewarded with some bass. We actually heard of some keeper size bass too. Like we said in yesterdays report bring an assortment of lures with you. AVA’s, Sandeel Teasers, Shads, Mag Darters, SP’s to name a few. Looks like we have more nasty weather for Tuesday but the fish are here so dress properly and hit the suds.

We had lots of people call the past few days about the St. Judes Grumpy Santa Event so we’re going to extend it to both Saturday and Sunday! Details below…..

12/9 Monday— Slow start but phenomenal ending!

I’ll quote Shell E. Caris after talking to him Sunday night.. “Slow start in the morning but we stayed on the move and found them heavy later on in the morning. Best fishing I had in a few years”. To us that speaks volumes. It started slow but got much better later on. The most important thing is staying on the move. Shop employee Sheldon and friend David got over 20 Bass in the evening. They reported Peanuts in the wash getting chased on the beach. All their Bass were caught on Midway JB Minnows. The fishing was very good the 2nd half of the day. Little bit of everything is working because of all the different bait in the area. Sandeels, Peanuts, and Sea Herring were all reported. We’re also hearing of some small white bait around. This Fall Run started late but has really kicked in the past couple weeks. Are they big bass? No! Downsize your gear and go have some fun. Most of the bass being reported are in the 18-25” range. Looks like we have some weather coming in for Monday. We’ll update if we hear anything!

Mark your calendars! The 2nd annual Grumpy Santa event is coming to Grumpys on Saturday, December 14th from 7am-1pm! Come sit down with the Grumpy Santa hisself! 100 percent of all donations given will go right to St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital! Time to give back!
