Took a boat ride today, OC; Nada, marking tons of bait- even saw a few bunker snagged (no sign on surface-all 20-30' deep). Did not see even one of the 100's of boats hooked up. But heard there were a few fish caught. Water was MUCH cleaner off the beach, maybe that's keeping the bait/fish off the shore line
Back to the sand tomorrow.

Repeated the trip from Thursday on Sunday...same time same place...beautiful weather... 4 kayaks...air 50+F...water 57F...place western Long Island Sound...caught PB 25" tog which was released in addition of 22",19" and 17" which were kept...lost 2 more large fish that were in 20+" category due to line breakage. I have been using 3/8oz jig baited with asian crabs...it is funny to see that big fish mouth and thick lips with such a small jig...a day to remember..btw, sunrise photo this time is not that special...

I have Kokotat pants with boots and Stormr jacket with layers under...number of layers depends on temps forecast that day...it was pretty comfortable this fall season so far... a water is in upper 50ies which is warmer than the air...so as long as there is no strong breeze with temps in lower 30ies I am fine...when it gets colder I will put full dry suit on....if your hands get cold you warm them in the ocean
I get colder surfishing than kayaking...

I took a quick trip to look at the beach and got my eyes sandblasted at IBSP. So, naturally I took a walk out back and caught 4 nice, energetic shorts on my go to bucktail. Actually, the first 2 were caught on the teaser, which surprised me until I saw that the water was full of rain fish. The next 2 were a good deal bigger and took the bucktail /curlytail. I look forward to actually hooking up with some bigger fish in the ocean. Meantime, though, I will gladly accept the youngsters.

Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, make sure you snag your turkey early before tide goes out.

Just got off the beach, lots of white water but fishable. Foggy, very little wind (but I understand that is going to change in a big way). If you do go, bring a marshmallow mag darter 'cause the water is like chocolate milk

Gave the ocean about a dozen casts before it stole my bucktail and I went and just got a coffee.

Here's a question for Mr. Barbosa or any of our other boat savvy respondents.


I have an invitation to try fishing with a friend on his boat going out of the Barnegat Inlet tomorrow. I am reasonably sure that there are striper in the area. Not the whole wave of migrators, but some scouts, maybe. How might I best tempt them to strike?
I have some Mojo's and some big bucktails, a few plugs that are troll-able. We could get a clam log and try attracting fish that way. I have experience with snag & drop if bunker make an appearance. Does anyone have any sort of wisdom for me during this transition phase of the season? Boat fishing is a really weak area for me, as you can probably figure.

Thanks!
