With my son’s fall baseball schedule winding down, weekends are finally in play as the fish have started moving. The recent cooler nights have chilled our surrounding waters down and the bay/inlet Striped Bass are starting to become active. We will start targeting Striped Bass and Bluefish for the rest of the season. It should only get better in the coming weeks and November is almost booked with only two dates remaining.

I had Bruce Connor from Illinois on a 5-hour Fall Striped Bass charter and we worked a variety of areas. We started working the back with live bait and Bruce hooked a couple of monster Bluefish to 16 pounds keeping a smaller one for the table. We were able to pick a 25-inch Striped Bass amongst the Bluefish, which was harvested with a NJSBBP tag. As the bite died, we got into some bird action with False Albacore busting the surface. Bay Anchovies/Rainfish were being sprayed as the Albacore rocketed through the schools. We played with the Albacore for the remainder of the trip as they burned drags on metals and our hand-tied teasers. It was literally a non-stop bite for 3 solid hours. Great job by Bruce who went home with some meat and sore arms.
On all of our Fall Striped Bass charters, we provide “live spot” on every charter which are included at no charge. Just a reminder, we have our allotted 50 Striped Bass Bonus Tags from the state of NJ for the season and we be using them till the end of the season.
