Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters – Barnegat Bay Striped Bass Fishing Report

Striped bass continue to provide fun and busy light tackle action while utilizing both artificial and natural baits with tidal stages seemingly dictating which to employ.

The resident bass population is seeing larger specimens join in the activity or migrating larger fish are starting to show with some bass approaching the 28″keeper size. Our first keeper bass of the 2018 fishing season could be caught on the next outing!
Presently our striped bass catch and release landings are just shy of 100 stripers in half dozen trips for this young season. With these numbers I’m excited to look forward into our Spring and early Summer bass fishery as it develops.
Anglers have also been entertained observing diving and feeding ospreys and eagles dining on bunker, winter flounder and even our beloved striped bass [ booo!] .
On another note check out April’s edition of “The Fisherman” magazine for tips, techniques and all things fishing with a familiar face on the cover. As a long time reader of the magazine it’s a real honor to have made the front cover!
I have this Thursday 10am – 2pm, Friday 8am – 12pm, 1pm -5pm, Sunday 8am -12pm
