Lighthouse Sportfishing Barnegat Bay Report 4/18

Hit the local lagoons the last two evenings and caught a bunch of white perch. Some of which I invited home to dinner. Monday night’s bite started a few hours before sun down and stayed strong until dark. Tonight was a little bit slower and a lot more smaller fish.IMG_2805I was using a shad dart with a piece of sandworm. Yes, you can catch white perch without grass shrimp. On the nature side of things: lets talk sustainability. Sustainability’s definition is “the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level.” or “avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance” It is kind of like investing in the future. The locale I was fishing the last two evenings was a mob scene. Even with the crowds everyone got along and even offered to give bait to others. I like when I see such goodness in outdoors people. And what most importantly I observed was that even though there no limits on white perch everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, was harvesting only what they needed. Lots of fish were being released which is important at this time of year since they are looking to spawn. Can anyone tell me where I can catch white perch in July or August around Barnegat Bay??? Like where do they go?
