LBI Fishing Report Update November 8, 2019

A good chill has arrived and the fall fishing is heating up! Now’s the time to get in on the action. The recent days were full of solid striped bass fishing. Here’s a quick update to supplement our most recent “complete report” post on 11/5/19.

Here is Swagmattic with one of many big beautiful striped bass that was caught and released aboard Fish Head Charters on Wednesday. The fish this day were eating bunker, sand eels and anchovies. It’s rare to find schools of fish eating a variety of baits at the same time but this day all of the fall’s forage was stacked up just a couple miles from Barnegat Inlet.

A good wave a striped bass marched in this week. What started on Sunday/Monday continued on everyday since. Striped bass from 15 to 50+ pounds were caught; troll, jig, live bait, top water, what have you… This large body of fish is here now! However there’s no telling how long they will stay. For all those that always complain how bad the fish is… Please Get Out & Fish! If you need assistant… stop in that’s what we are here for.

The LBI Surf Fishing Classic had a new leader take over yesterday. Here’s the top three.
