I used to do the same thing, watch Jersey, but that has little to do with us below the deleware

On years with warm falls, such as this year, the duration of good fall fishing is usually shortened. Last few years it has been a sudden change from fall to winter causing the temps to go from warm to cold pretty quickly. On years like those the fish move through pretty fast. On gradual changes of season it seems to present a longer window of good fishing. Just my observations from my fishing logs.
Yeah that is what I am afraid of, I am hoping we start to drop to at least some seasonal temps or subseasonal would be nice to get these fish moving south and hopefully close to shore. Then the temps can stall and they can just sit on our coast..LOL

I hope somebody tells the fish this year because the last few falls stunk for me... a few fish here and there but nothing to write home about.

1. A serious run of decent size fish can start as early as mid-October, but the norm is early November.
2. For most of the fall run of Striped Bass, water temps range from the high 40’s to mid 60’s…but the range of water temps when the largest fish are present is roughly 54 degrees to 62 degrees.
3. November seems to be the best month for the fall run of fish…but here’s a video I shot that was in early winter from the beach…
4. The past 6 + years there has been a noticeable decline in numbers of Striped Bass caught, especially in the fall…
Predicting how the fall run of Striped Bass on this coast will turn out is, well, unpredictable…

Anywhere from Mid-October on for good fish.
They don't all leave/come at the same time & like Lucky said I think the Deleware Bay/River fish have a lot to do with it. River water generally cools faster than ocean water and may spark some fish earlier than others, who knows... Not sure where they all come from, but generally from what I've seen sometimes there is a very short push of good fish that happens earlier than most people think--before the bulk of the migration. If you aren't out there fishing, you will have missed them unless they decide to hang around for a little while.
If I got to fish as much as I'd like i'd be out there starting with this last moon...
