Miles Enjoys Great Fishing!

Miles Callisto from Tomorrowland took a break from his space adventures last night and got into some good fishing!

Miles from Tomorrowland had fun fishing LBI.
Miles from Disney’s Tomorrowland enjoyed fishing Long Beach Island and catching striped bass.

All joking aside good early season fishing continues. The bay is full of small bass some are super dinks as seen in the photo above. It gets me thinking… How old is a 8-10″ fish? I recall reading or hearing that a striped bass doesn’t leave it’s “home” until it is 1-3 years old. Wonder if these are resident fish, maybe Mullica River Rats? Could these be migrates?

More positive reports from the surf. One local Ship Bottom resident said he caught too many small bass to count, “I lost count at about 50!” They were in tight to the mid island beach hamming softbaits. Recently the conditions got difficult. The pumping south east swell today is forecast to stick around for a few days.

Breaking News: Recent talk of some bluefish showing up not too far south, Atlantic City and South Jersey waters. Then today we heard through the grapevine a couple were caught on the bayside on the south end of the Island.

    1. That’s what we’ve heard. So that would mean these thousands if not millions of micro baby bass are all locals? I really find that hard to believe. But if it’s true we’ll have epic fishing in a few years if these critters stick around.
