Easter Fishing Report

From all of us at Fish Heads… Happy Easter!

The striped bass remain active, a little less active than earlier in the month, but both bait and lures are catching day and night. The early season areas remain the epicenter, back bays, rivers and tributaries. Here on Long Beach Island there has been good fishing the entire month of March on the Ship Bottom bayside as well as the Causeway Bridge access points. We expect this to continue for all of April. A bigger class of striped bass have moved into the greater region with classy fish recently in the Delaware River and Raritan Bay. April is always a great month and we are looking forward to it.

Monday April 1st is opening day of New Jersey’s blackfishing season opens. Right now we have both green crabs and white crabs as well as all top tog tackles. Stop in and gear up today for this short but awesome one month season!

Just a heads up we are closing early today but will be back on Monday.
