12/4 Tuesday

First light was very good again and it slowed down as the day went on. Seems like you get them good for about 2 hours after sun up and then it turns into a pick the rest of the day.  Did have a couple good reports about a bait bite during the afternoon hours. Guys were using Salted Clams for them. I expect this type of fishing to continue for at least the next couple weeks.  Conditions look fantastic all week.

12/3 Monday– Still good!

The fishing remained good even with the crummy weather we had Sunday. We got some really good reports in the evening hours. Few reported double headers on the metal teaser combo. This December is shaping up to be a very good month on the beach. Is the size there? No but we did get more reports of keeper size fish Sunday. One of our regulars got 6 bass on bait with 1 being a nice keeper. The action is all most care about anyways. Break out a lighter rod and go have some fun! Weather looks good. More WNW winds all week which is great.

12/2 Sunday

Another good day. First light was very good and once that sun got higher up it slowed down a bit. Mostly a pick during the daytime but if you worked the beaches you caught well. The night bite has been pretty slow this past week but I got a very good report from one of our regulars who reported a ton of small fish late Friday night using needlefish. All the bass we heard of Saturday were on the smaller side but they sure are fun.. Metal and teasers once again. If you’re looking for some good sand eel teasers we just got more of the HOT Bob Bott Epoxy teasers. He can’t make these fast enough for us. If you want to throw bait try using Fresh Bunker. Had a crew do well using smaller pieces of Bunker Saturday evening.

Looks like we got some rain moving in for the morning Sunday with gradual clearing. Open 430am-10pm EVERYDAY!

12/1 Saturday

Happy December! The good fishing continues. Basically a carbon copy of yesterdays report. Lots of small fish with a few very nice size keepers mixed in. Metals are working the best but we also had guys do really well on plastics.. Even had a few of our bait guys report fish on bunker chunks. Weather looks great for Saturday. We got in a mess of Fresh Bunker and we have plenty of Salted Clams. Open 430am-10pm EVERYDAY!

11/30 Friday–Good Fishing Continues!

The best day so far. Some really good fishing right now on the local beaches. Tons of small bass but we heard of more keepers Thursday compared to the last few days. These fish are gorging on sandeels so use anything to imitate that. This body of fish is pretty large and spread out. We’ve had reports come  from Monmouth beach to IBSP. If you’ve been waiting for the big push of bass now is the time! Who knows how long it will last but they’re here now. Weather looks good for the next couple days! 

We had our big dealer show in AC Thursday. We’ll be adding more products in the coming months! Guess I’ll be rearranging the racks this winter to make more room! 

 

 

11/29 Thursday–Good fishing!

Good fishing Wednesday. There’s  a lot of small  bass in the area with a few keeper size fish around.. One of our regulars had a couple right around 30″ that he released. Most of the bass are in that 18″-25″ range. Still gorging on sandeels and are very fat. Metals such as AVA’s, Deadly Dicks, AOK’s, Tsunami Metals are all working just make sure you use a teaser above. We also had guys do well on Bill Hurley Eels and Tsunami Eels again. The real encouraging thing is we heard of bass up and down. No hot spot. Even Monmouth county is producing. Weather looks good for the next few days. More NW winds for Thursday.

Wednesdays orders (ALOT!)– Super Strike Lures including the NEW Eely Colors, Tsunami Eels, Shimano reels including Twin Power Spinning reels and the NEW Tranx 200’s, Rod Geek Rod Blanks (NEW COLORS), Anchorman Wreck Anchors, and St. Croix Legend Surf Rods. We’re your shop for Holiday Season! We’ll be open normal business hours all the way till Christmas! 430am-10pm!

Pay attention to our social media pages in the coming days! We’ll have some news on a Charity Fundraiser we’ll be running at the shop in a couple weeks.

11/28 Wednesday

Didn’t send a ton of anglers out Tuesday. The fishing wasn’t as good as the day before but there was some bass caught. Some guys are doing better than others. Water was dirty from the day before blow but we already got reports before sundown of it cleaning up. Keep fishing those teaser rigs with AVAS, T-hexs or deadly dicks. That’s your best bet! We did get a couple reports of some bass on bunker as well.

11/27 Tuesday–Best day of the Fall Season

Easily the best day of the fall season Monday. Most of the reports came from the Seaside Park to IBSP area. Metal with a teaser was really all you needed but we had customers catch on Plastic eels such as the Bill Hurley’s and Tsunami Eels. Even had a few guys do well on SP’s. Most of the bass are on the short side but we did hear of some nice keepers caught. Looks like WEST winds all week which is great. We’ll see happens Tuesday. Hopefully these fish stick in the area. Even hearing of more fish to the north.. Open 430am-10pm EVERYDAY!

11/26 Monday

Sorry for the late report. We’re already getting reports this morning. Conditions are great. Water has cleaned up nicely pretty much back to normal. Metal and teasers still the way to go. If you want to throw bait we have plenty of clams and bunker. Open till 10pm.

11/25 Sunday– Much better!

Much better fishing Saturday. We had bass reports come in from all different areas both shorts and keepers. Lots of bait in the area! We also got reports of small blues again. No Hot Spot just put your time in and work the beaches. We had a nice bass weighed-in on Bunker. Seems bait is working but artificials are getting the most attention right now with all the small bait in the area. Sundays weather looks good.

We have plenty of Fresh Bait!
