Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters – Barnegat Bay Fishing Report – Big Bass!!

Anglers aboard the Reel Fantasea continue to score both striped bass and blues whether plying the calm back waters of our bays and inlets or taking to the more open expanses of the Atlantic ocean to target much larger trophy size striped bass!
The bay and inlet has provided solid action with striped bass on light spinning tackle while employing various artificial presentations with bluefish and fluke spicing the catches as well.
Albeit Friday afternoon’s robust SSW winds created a frigid cold water upwelling inshore that saw incoming tide temps dip as low as 46 degrees putting the fish off the bite around the flood tidal stage but with predicted NE winds on their way this should rectify with in a few tide changes.
With schools of bunker being a bit scattered  for the snag and drop technique ,  employing the most reliable trolling time tested Tony Maja Spoons #4  and Magic Mojo tandem rigs have produced our bigger striped bass in the deeper local waters. White and chartreuse spoons and mojos have been our most productive colors with some bass approaching 40lbs!
I do have a few “Happy Hour” [ 5pm-8pm]  specials available this week targeting striped bass and blues locally. We have been catching regularly within minutes of the dock!
Wishing everyone fair winds and calm seas,
Captain Steve Purul
