Halloween Fishing Report Update

Halloween Fishing Report Update

Happy Halloween!!! Here’s the Halloween Fishing Report Update for October 31, 2018

It’s finally here… what we call the meat of the fall run, Halloween to Thanksgiving. Sure enough, right on time, the fish showed up. And some nice ones at that! We are looking forward to awesome fishing ahead. Let’s get in the game.

Both today and yesterday talk from the boats were good, “large striped bass feeding on bunker.” Anglers live lining and trolling caught fish. Most of this action was from Seaside north but soon these migrating fish will fill into the local waters of Long Beach Island.

Here’s two solid boat fishing reports today. Shop Alumni Yonnie got a 25 pound striped bass fishing off Seaside this morning. Bill Shoemaker weighed in a 35 pound striped bass he caught on snag and drop.

LBI Land Based Fishing Report

Anglers fishing crabs are catching tog. This bite has been good for well over a month and still continues to be productive. We expect tog fishing to continue on strong.

Today a new leader is on the board for the LBI Surf Fishing Classic! TJ Loughran Jr got a 10.98 pound striped bass this morning off the mid island. He caught it on bunker. John Chrzanowski’s 9.42 pound striped bass (caught on 10/26) hold second place.

Fish Head Charter Report Update

I had a fun night session with Kelley and Blake last night. We checked out some night time haunts on the boat and found a couple hungry striped bass.

My most recent trip out before last night was on Friday before the blow. I had Lee and Seth from SaltwaterHeartFishing aboard for a dawn patrol session. The trip started off hot and stayed that way all all day. Lee and Seth traded off one after the other with numerous double ups.  Lee was high hook in the early part of the trip bucktailing but later in the day Seth caught up and he dialed in on an X-Rap lure from Rapala.

It was a great day (best quality fishing on the Fish Head this fall). I look forward to having the brothers aboard a couple more times this fall!

With the new arrivals hungry I’m stoked for the run. I’ll be out fishing every chance I can get. Jump aboard Fish Head Charters and get in on the fun!

Upcoming Boat Fishing Tournament

The 4th Annual Maximilian Foundation Fishing Tournament & Fish Fry is this weekend, Saturday November 3rd. Support this great event which helps our great community with drug awareness and prevention. We have our fingers crossed for good weather. Even if it’s sour, the party will be rocking with live music, local craft beer, special drawings and an auction table.
