My feelings exactly...except for my trip to SH this afternoon. And maybe Thursday...

I'd love to have someone explain the bizarre case of the missing blues in the fall. Every spring, they show up in numbers. Last 5 fall runs, none.
As for the bass, I've had 2 very good days and lots of not so hot days. Haven't seen the clouds of peanuts we used to see. No idea what's up, but I suspect that the major beach replenishment projects all along the Jersey coast have to have something to do with it.

I don't think it is helping but there have been sand eels around which beach replenishment is know to kill off.

got out this morning for about 90 minutes, no luck and nobody I spoke to had any either. I also met 2 people in the parking lot and one for them said they were 80 and still fishing.

Love it and hope to be so lucky.

No doubt beach replenishment has affected the surf fishing here in NJ.
But having fished Block, Cutty, and Montauk the number of larger fish is down everywhere (they don't have sand beaches). The only consistent bite I seen is the CC Canal. Guess what the CCC doesn't have that all of the other spots have= boats. No charters, no party boats, no private boats, no giant seiner nets cleaning out the bait-none of it. We can't keep killing all the large breeder fish and expect them to be there the following year, it's just not sustainable.

As if on cue, came across this right after I posted.

Couldn't agree with you more. Something drastic needs to be done. I've always thought that No Keepers in the Spring would help a lot. Let them all spawn.

agree; we need to understand that we protect the future of our fishery by what we do in the present; limit the season; slot keepers; no bonus tag; had a major blue blitz at first light here near Sebastian Inlet; saw two 4 ft sharks flopping in the wash when I first arrived; had a major hit on a topwater first light and fish ran some drag...got him in the wash and line snapped; never saw it; these are the stories that keep us fishing

I thought I'd posted this this morning. Must have forgotten to push the ENTER button and shut down. Sigh...


I went over to try my luck at SH yesterday after lunch. When I got there I saw a crowd at the gate beach parking and pulled in to check it out. I spoke with a guy who was taking off his waders who told me the water was chocolaty and nobody was getting anything. He recommended that I try down the coast a few miles where the water was cleaner and he'd caught a couple fish in the morning. I followed his advice, even though I'd never fished in the town he had mentioned.
I wandered down, found a parking space and hit the beach between some jetties. There were other fishermen in sight, but none nearby. I was throwing my old favorite, a bucktail and teaser and caught a fish in about 10 minutes. A little later I had another and dropped it in the wash.
It took 1.5 hours to get another hit for some reason, but I ended up with 4 fish, one of which might have been a real close to keeper size. The last 3 fish were all white teaser biters.
I will likely try that area again one afternoon this week.

that same crowd of people were there again today all morning, glad they arent catching anything in that one specific lot if Sandy Hook

I went further south, and had 1 hit on first cast then nothing for about 45 minutes, then just as I was wondering if it was appropriate time for a hot dog at Max's had one short, less than 20.

This looks like good fishing times, Deo gracias!
I'm heading to the beach tomorrow PM to catch the high end of the tide and early evening in Monmouth County.

So, when you walk out on the beach, and the first thing you see is a seal, and he follows you down the beach, should you just leave or make a harpoon

hearing great reports from several reliable sources; lots of fish close to beach; almost all fat and 22-28 in; anyone into them? lots of blues here in the surf; 20-24 in but nice and fat; got my first ever pompano this week in the Indian River on a swimming plug; my thoughts are with you on what may be a nice Fall run......and Happy Thanksgiving to all and time to reflect on the what really matters

leave. they do get trained to steal fish or worse to associate you with "bait" (either the fish you catch or bait)

down here, we had a seal hanging by the south jetty in Brig due to folks feeding it. A biologist came to observe and keep chasing it off the jetty as it was a juvi and the behavior was very unhealthy for it.
