It warmed up real quick yesterday. It was a great day of fishing. The morning was flat with bass on just about every cast. They werenít picky despite being on small rain bait. I had no problem using a 7Ē white Zman jerk Shad. In the afternoon the jig bite got going in 60í of water. Bass love nasty weather. It got nasty! The harder the wind blow the more aggressive the bass got. It wasnít just bass we were also catching a ton of fat bluefish. 8-12lb range. We did a drift that lasted an 1.5 hours without having to reposition the boat. The ride home sucked! We were at the Ocean Beach water tower. We headed back at 14mph. 3-4 footers at 4 seconds. Very sore today , canít wait to get back out there. Thanks for the trip Roger!

Pretty good sunrise bite this morning, slots and unders for us, all on umbrellas. Then the wolfpack of blues moved in and took over. Had some fun with them then called it an early day. Little sloppy to start but ended up being beautiful. Not as many big fish, maybe this is the beginning of the end?

Did you see a stony brook research vessel out there today off the round house? They were throwing lots of dead and injured dogfish in the water. There was a slick of dead dogfish. Whatís up with that?

I too was out early this morning. The FI inlet was crazy rough, had a little bit of the white knuckles. I shot East right off the bat about 2 miles past the water tower. Worked that for a while.
I used everything but the kitchen sink at the fish. Only 2 shorts on soft plastics and a ton of dogfish. They took my sand eels, shad, jigs you name it. I couldnít avoid them. I then headed West working pod after pod. I live lined bunker and jigged the bottom but no bass. kept getting dogfish and blues eating by bunker .
As I headed in around 1:30 for the FI inlet I was getting some nice marks. ( No birds or bunker around) in 60 feet of water , just south of the whistle buoy. I managed one really nice bass over 40 inches ( was a bit longer than my 36 inch sticker ruler) while slow jigging. stayed out till about three then headed home.
Not sure if Iím gonna go out again or this was my last trip for the year. turned out to be a beautiful day and seas layed down somewhat in the afternoon.

Got out around 545 this AM. Made a few stops at some rips I like, no takers.

FI inlet was nasty going out, lovely wind/swell against tide. There was no water in the inlet at all this AM. I saw 1.6-1.9 in the channel. Be careful !

I started along field 2, where the surfcasters were hammering fish. I got in close 10 feet of water or so, had a few fish on every cast but it was almost whitewater where I was, too much work to stay where I wanted to be.

I went deeper, 60-70 feet and had solid action throwing once again my Fall 2020 piece- the SP Minnow. Had my wife with me and we both were throwing the SP Minnow and we did well. No real rats, most of these 24-27, we had one or two that probably fit in the slot but we were catch and release.

We were home by 9:30, left them biting. Saw some pods as we got back closer to the FI Inlet, but didn’t stop and check them out.

Default First one!

Headed out about noon with my ten year old son after his soccer game. Caught his first stripper. 33Ē after snagging a bunker in about 60 feet south of field 5. I think heís hooked now.

Similar day for me. Inlet was shallow and rough this morning and the ocean wasn't much better. I bought one of those anti fatigue helm mats and it definitely helped today. I picked away at small fish throughout the day. I never got into a good bite and finished with around 10 fish, all unders. I tried different soft plastics but most of my bites came on a small amber colored Hogy epoxy jig.

I might try tomorrow but it looks like the wind is going to pick up in the afternoon out of the east and they never get that forecast right.

Gina just trimmed up the filets from a striped bass that I brought home. It had a couple worms in it. First time that I have seen that.

A bit scary, I hadn't even been paying too much attention to this when filleting. Are these the kind that won't do much harm of cooked thoroughly?

From everything that I have read , if you ate one you would be ok. This is the first time we have seen a fish with worms.

I fileted a bass with worms either last spring or the spring before.

Haven't eaten bass since...love to catch them but all good on eating...I wouldn't eat a steak that had worms or chicken or a vegetable...

What did they look like? Color/length? easy to detect? I have caught a bunch this season and didn't notice any, however i wasn't looking either.

Default Worms

Not frequently but I have seen the typical ďcod wormsĒ in striped bass before.

I have also found them more frequently in seabass and fluke. Usually fish caught in deeper water for whatever reason. I never used to check although now I do every fish. I think the more you look the more you find.
