LBI Fishing Report For March 8, 2020

Here’s the LBI Fishing Report for the week ending Sunday March 8, 2020.

A good presence of striped bass showed this week. The abundance at night was impressive and some quality ones hinted at good fishing ahead. Now with daylight saving we are on the fast track to spring fishing!

The night shift is the best times to work the shadow lines with small jigs and plastics. The Kettle Creek Paddle Tails are a standout choice! A few days back store staffers Jordan and Dan both had productive outings. They fished separate areas at different times and both has a blast reporting numerous striped bass.

Here’s one Barnegat Bay mutant striped bass Dan caught on a pink Kettle Creek. What do you think attacked it… maybe a bluefish or a shark? Seems like it has healed and is growing up just fine. Dan released the mutant to swim another day and grow up.
Here’s one of many night time linesiders Jordan caught on jigs this past week. No hungry bass will turn down a properly presented bucktail!

A shop regular stop in Wednesday purchasing a new pair of waders for spring fishing. While in he show a photo but wouldn’t allow us to share. It was a picture from a recent fishing trip and the biggest bass we saw to date this year… A nice high teen, possibly hitting the 20 pound mark bass. 

Saturday midday Hunter Dargay stopped in and got some live bloodworms. Within minutes he tagged us in this photo… They are chewing!
