Off The Charts!

I thought it could not get better than yesterday and this past week. BUT today it did. A large striped bass bio mass is staged up in the LBI waters and has this weekend set for great late fall fishing.

The bass are stacked up!

Fishing was off the charts today! Quality bass just piling on the hooks. Some of the best fishing I’ve experienced bass fishing out of Barnegat Inlet.

Here’s Chris from Surf City with a pig that went for a bucktail tipped with a Fat Cow Jig Strip this morning. Chris was out fishing today with me aboard the Fish Head. We had a ton of fun.

This bass fell for a bucktail tipped with a Fat Cow Jig Strip.

Steve Warren was in yesterday preparing for fishing today. He sent in this report, “Thanks for your help! Caught non-stop until I stopped when seas kicked up around noon. Never went more than a couple minutes without a fish. Nothing over 25 nothing under 15.”

Dave Sutter sent in this message, ” I was out off of Harvey Cedars late afternoon yesterday trying to get on some fish and was surprised to see George Poveromo, on his boat the Mark IV, fishing in the same group of boats I was in. Just proves that we have a world class fishery right in our back yards! (as if we don’t already know). Lets fish responsibly and hopefully we can keep it that way!”

LBI Surf Fishing Report Update

With the large population of striped bass in our local waters, I’m shocked at how few are being caught on the beach. Recently there’s been a small uptick
in the surf activity. Expect this to imporve more and hopefully offer good fishing this weekend and the upcoming week to close out the surf fishing tournament on a strong note. Everyone is happy we added the 9th week this year!!! There were three fish entered into the surf derby today. For LBI Classic weigh in data check out the live results page at
