    November 2018 Fishing Reports

    I've been keeping my 4 hour daily skunk sessions to myself lately. Also haven't been posting my mediocre trips where I get into some fish. But tonight was something special and I am extremely grateful to say I caught a fish of a lifetime, from land of course... It was a great fight, a safe landing and a perfect release. Quickly put her on my boga, took a couple pics and went swimming in the water to revive her. That's all I have to say about that. I never have and will never sleep on a new moon for that reason

    November 2018 Fishing Reports

    4-5:15 pm. Back to the same area I fished this morning. Nada. There was a lot of bait, sand eels. A couple of brief blowups, right in the wash, but no hookup. Forgot to mention in my earlier report, but I saw something strange this morning. Duck was bobbing along and suddenly flapped its wings and disappeared under the water. Watched for him to come back up, but he never did. Have no idea what hit him, but I've never seen anything like it. 50 Years ago tomorrow, I was a butter bar Lt., only in Nam for a couple of weeks, and engaged in a three day battle along the Cambodian border. We were the artillery support for several infantry units. We managed to have a few minutes to eat our turkey dinner and it was back to fighting. I am extremely grateful for all God has given me, not the material things, but a wonderful wife, two children, and a wealth of friends. Tomorrow, I'll pray for my friends who didn't make it back and for those who died from war related experiences, after coming back. I'll enjoy dinner with family and friends and not worry about incoming or the type of fear that permeates every part of your being. We, as a people, are lucky to live in a country that offers so much. We should all be grateful for that. Remember our men and women serving in theaters around the world. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Happy Gobble, Gobble day to all.

    April 2019 Fishing Reports

    Skunk streak ended. (Sorta) Took my three young sons fishing today out back by the sod banks in CMC. Figured the boys may help shake the skunk. Middle one (6) is autistic. He loves fishing but he runs in the water as soon as I loosen the death grip to show him how to cast & retrieve. Then, I get wet & muddy going after him. The drowning risk scares the bejesus out of me. So I devised a new system: put on my surf belt; took the LATCH belt with clips from an old car seat; wrapped that around the surf belt 6 times and clipped each side onto his “car harness.” (Zips up the back and keeps him from jumping around the school bus.) Worked perfectly! Fished with sand eel scented green squid strips. Pseudo bait & wait. Retrieve with action preferred, but I suspect a chance of catching while dead sticking. Took an hour long skunk and finally my little harness buddy & I got hard hit, I set the hook, set it again, ML rod & 2000 sized reel and the fish started pulling a little drag with the drag set pretty tight. Call the other two boys over closer. They’re all excited. I get it to the surface and I see a damn fine flounder/fluke. Hard to measure with an excited little boy clipped to me and a flopping fish but over 20” and felt like min 3lbs but heavy for this time of year. Raising law abiding citizens, so that out of season fish is still swimming. Still cant catch a striped bass, but the day ended a skunk streak and maybe my luck is turning around.

    Whoever you are, that left the heron tangled in their blue braid, you are a scumbag. Dont worry ( not you, scumbag, you ought to worry ) , the heron was okay- sorta. me and uncle benzy cut it free.Thought its wing was done after trying to pull out of the tangled braid for however long.. after it stopped freaking out it hopped around and eventually flew away.

    April 2019 Fishing Reports

    Got tired of reporting skunks, so I didn't post any skunk reports the past week or so, I know you're all tired of reading my useless reports. Went out tonight and was planning to hit a spot that I felt would produce, especially with the drop in temps. But, I was advised by a fine gentleman on this site to go to a different spot instead, so I scrapped my plans and heeded his advice. For the first few hours I threw almost everything I had in my bag, but couldn't get a tap. Switched to one of my last plugs and was about to switch to my very last option, but I said, maybe 3 more casts. And just like that, the skunkathon is finally over (RIP adoboboy skunkathon Dec 2017 to April 2019). Caught a nice 20+ pounder and drove home with a stupid smile on my face while belting out Red Hot Chili Peppers songs. Finally..........What did I do differently from all my previous trips? nothing whatsoever......tonight lady luck was on my side. Thanks to all who tried to help and thank you to the fine gentleman who shall not be named. Lots of good karma going your way.

    Kind of sad but I didn't get to do much fishing this fall. Getting older sucks and wife and I have been kept bouncing from doctor to doctor. I had to go for a bladder biopsy yesterday and am hanging up the waders till next year. Have to find out the results from the doctor and hope it is soon and favorable. Already had cancer once and not in the mood for a rerun. Luckily I managed to get out last Thursday morning with a couple of good friends and I was very happy to put three shorts on the beach. For all those young bucks out there, there will come a time when the steps come a little slower and you will be grateful even for the drinks. I just learned to use lighter tackle and enjoy each fish a little more. God bless all and catch 'em up.

    I’m sorry to hear that, I’m From Brazil and just complete 19 years living in the US... I know that my English is not perfect and that a lot of “spanish” people do not follow the rules when they are fishing... I just want to say that isn’t all of us that think like this... I have a group of friends that love fishing and we practice catch and release most of the time... (I do keep some, but only what I am allowed to keep). Also I have an office contact who gave me his personal card in case that I see someone not following the rules... (people around me know that I’ll call the cops if they do something wrong...). So, please, don’t take that as an insult but a have seen American people keeping illegal fish too.. this is not a matter of where are you from, but, the way you were educated... One more time, sorry for my English, and I wish a good season of fishing for all of us that “Really love Fishing!!”

    Appreciate the thought. My daughter suffers from a neuropathetic nerve disease. She is in constant pain, level varying. It's most likely a result of pass along effect from my exposure to Agent Orange. She's a real trooper who rarely complains . Fishing is my escape mechanism. It is often where I do my best talking to the Man upstairs.

    Found a bite this morning of fish up to 20# every cast for an hour and a half. Outgoing tide seems to be the ticket.. the special part of this report is that I got my daughter on the fish for the first time and she was working these fish in like a pro. A few fish just under keeper size and over a dozen ranging from 10#-20# all fish were caught on a hydro minnow in skinny water. Right place right time kinda thing... they were feeding on what looked like holdover peanuts but I'm not 100% sure of that. Proudest and most exciting fishing session and day of my life when you can share the passion that I hold near and dear with my little girl who I also hold near and dear

    The switch did get put back in the on position this morning. Decided to stay local and not make the trip to the south, which payed off. Found 18 this morning during my walk in all sizes up to 25 inches. Even had one double header, a big hickory, and a fluke. Didn't see any of the bait reported, but all the fish were fat and spread out. I was using my small sand eel that did the trick. So guess it's not over just yet.

    Late report... but have been busy with the holiday. Still some nice fish around! Wednesday low tide mid day in MoCo (away from the crowds). One beautiful keeper, six rats, and a blue fish. All released for some else to catch. A lot of sand eels around, all close to the structure.

    November 2018 Fishing Reports

    Fished Monmouth county pretty much all day, it was the kind of day we all look forward to. The fish were coming and going all day. AVAs were by far the most productive but we were getting them on swimmers too. I would say fish up 32" and some bigger but rare, most were just 24"-28" butterballs. I caught double digits on bass and atleast 5 or 6 on the teaser along with about 7 or 8 herring on the teaser that were atleast 2#-3#! I dropped so many fish due to bad hook sets and arm fatigue... Sandeels are definetly confirmed in both Monmouth and ocean county. So all you guys that are crying that it's over or not good enough like the "old days" stay home and wait for next year, but in my opinion we have to keep getting out there and be grateful for what we can get. All my fish were released and I'll be out from first light until my arm cant take anymore. I went back out around 8:00 tonight to see what I can find and it was dead. Its definitely a day bite and who knows after tomorrow afternoon with the winds picking up if this bite is going to continue, but I'll be out locked and loaded everyday cause that's what you gotta do. If you wait to hear about it theres a good chance you'll miss it.

    Went out last night, conditions were not bad at all and not too many folks out. Had a decent bite, but not the type that can get someone off his recliner . Caught fish on a ghost mag darter, bone mag darter, sp, bomber and to my surprise a northbar darter. Unfortunately, left my hellraiser sluggo in the car. Tried some metal lips, but just couldnt get a sniff, with those things. Still learning and will persevere. A couple of sharpies showed up where I was, with lighter gear and got into a decent bite before I left. They seemed to be catching fish every few minutes. Im sure their evening was better than mine. But not complaining at all.

    Wow, didn't think making a few informational posts would ruffle so many feathers. Here's the thing. I know if I want to be out there targeting bigger fish it means fishing the night time hours. That's just not what I do and don't find any enjoyment in it. Believe me, I know night time is when you will get more quality fish, but for me, it not just about that. I fish pre-dawn and evenings using light tackle and 99% of the time single hook. Catch and release everything. Can't remember when the last time I kept a legal fish. I take nothing away from those who do harvest a fish or two, I just would rather send them back for someone else to catch. Walking the sand almost every day since I retired has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of great fisherman and women out there, along with the locals I see all the time. Great conversations and swapping of fish stories only add to the experience. So I don't take any offense on any of the comments made. We all have our own perspectives on things. I will keep on doing my thing and I hope you all do the same. Just get out there and do what makes you happy and try sharing it with others. I'll go back into my cave now.

    Two falls in a row of dinkfeast. When you guys are arguing about what regulations youd prefer and what not, you may want to think about protecting these " 26" " fish or the 14" fish rather than the non-existant/mythical 40"+ fish. We have a healthy young population and they will all turn to keeper size within the same 1 or 2 years. After a frustrating 4 years of skunk (shoutout adoboboy) more anglers will start to keep a fish every trip. Regulators will say theres a ton of small fish so lets increase limits. Next thing you know there will be no more Striped Bass. Please protect these "rats" and treat them with respect as you release them. Thank you.

    Pre-Spawn Massacre

    It's such a joke. Charters, party boats, etc. etc... The amount of prespawn bass being killed has me disgusted. Big healthy breeders with millions of eggs just going to waste. No wonder the species is in decline. Could you imagine the state of the stock if regulations just prevented the killing of egg laden bass this time of year? It's a shame how widespread the disrespect for our local fish stocks is. And give me a break with the "its my right" argument. Thats just an excuse for machoism, self importance and/or greed. End of rant. Don't @ me.

    Unexpected and appreciated.

    Every once in a while something special happens. Every Monday I have dinner with my daughter and eleven year old granddaughter. We all take a turn picking and today we didn't end up at McDonalds. My daughter picked a local diner and we decided on 4:30 because my Granddaughter had her first fishing trip with her 4H club at a local pond at 6:00. The diner was slow since we were on the early side and within minutes we were eating. As we were getting ready to leave the waitress came with our bill but came right back with a new bill. This one was $16.00 less and the waitress said that someone in the diner had paid for my meal but she didn't know who. A waiter came over and said it was the gentleman seated in the booth with his wife right behind us. I got up and turned and the man I'd say was in his late 30's got up and shook my hand. He said his father was in Vietnam and had recently passed away after a long bout with the effects from agent orange and he wanted to honor his father with this very kind gesture. I thanked him then shook his hand then he gave me a big hug and I looked at his wife who had tears in her eyes and I hugged him back. The few others in the diner watched with smiles and as the three of us left I saw another Vet sitting with his family in a window booth. As I passed his window on the way down the ramp he smiled and gave me a small salute and I was proud to return it with a bigger smile. Both my daughter and granddaughter were smiling and that act of kindness made such an impression on them that it just made the evening perfect. You never know when something special will happen. My granddaughter did great on her first outing with six nice bluegills and even worked up the courage to put a worm on her own hook. This was a very good day.

    I was a writer once.

    Winter time for fisherman can be rough especially with weather like this. Good time to read and I'm sitting home so here goes. Caught big fish, little fish and lots of fish but a winter trip and one fish is still my all time favorite trip. Back in the late 70's I lived in Philly. Recently married but no kids yet. My work was slow so anyone who wanted could have the week between Christmas and New Years off so I took it. My thoughts turned to fishing and was trying to figure out where I could go to possibly find anything willing to take a hook. It was cold but no ice to fish through so that cut down some options. Don't know why but one spot came to mind that I hadn't fished in about twenty years on a picnic with my family. It was a place called Playwickie Park on the Neshaminy Creek just outside the city. First problem was bait but a trip to the back yard and a big pile of dead leaves fixed that. Turned them over and on the ground the leaves were moist and I found enough worms to make it worth the effort. Packed up to light rods and off I went not even sure if I knew how to get there after so many years. A few wrong turns but I eventually did find the park and another problem, There was a heavy chain from post to post blocking the entrance with a closed sign hanging from it. Lucked out again as the post had sagged and right in the middle the chain was on the ground just enough to allow my can to enter. It was cloudy and cold and the park was totally deserted that gave it an eerie since all my memories were of families having picnics and softball games. Drove down the the edge of the creek and got out of the car to dead silence but for the rambling of the creek water as it passed through some small rapids. There was one spot with a large boulder about thirty feet out with deep water behind it and figured this was my best option. Rigged and baited both lines then laid them out at each end of the pool. "There is a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot" Even a finer line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot when it's 30 degrees. I looked for a place to sit down. This area takes a beating during heavy rain storms and there were two very large trees on each side of me. The floods had dug out a large area leaving lots of exposed roots and one place where the roots were the thickest made a decent place to sit down and lean back. Felt good to be there all alone with lines in the water and so quiet that I didn't even hear the noise of the water any longer. You can think clearly at times like that and even though it was cold there wasn't any other place I could think of where I would rather be and then came the noise. It was a very slight ticking noise from above and I looked up just in time to take a snowflake in the eye. Funny when you are alone like that and you can actually hear the flakes hitting the branches of the two trees. I was wearing a black jacket and sat there motionless just watching this incredible winter picture evolve right before my eyes. In minutes everything was turning white including myself as the snow quickly covered my jacket. This day just kept getting better and it didn't take a fish to do that. Then a new noise. Came from a short distance behind me and the mind wanders about who or what it could since whatever it was couldn't see me as my head was about two feet below ground level in my root seat. The noise continued and slowly, silently I turned to face this mystery more curious than anything. I raised my head to eye level with the ground and there right in front of me where six deer rooting around in what little grass and nuts they could find. Five does and one buck who just knew he wasn't alone. The does rooted while he kept scanning the area looking but not able to locate me. It was so cool to be that close to them watching the snow fall and and actually hear them munching away as the fed quickly before the snow covered everything. Then the buck found me. He stood straight and stiff as he just stared at me while the does continued eating. then he snorted and the does stood stiff and waited. He stomped his one leg twice and they all turned and slowly ran towards the trre line about a hundred years away across the softball field. I turned and slid back into my seat just thinking about how lucky I had been to make the decision to do this trip. I was still replaying the whole deer scene in my head when I looked over and saw one of my rods twitching enough to knock the snow off that had covered both rods. I finally stood as the snow fell off my jacket and made it to the rod that was twitching even harder what could only be a fish. Set the hook and the rod bent as me a a two pound sucker duked it out for about thirty seconds until it was landed. Hook in the corner of his mouth that was quickly removed then I stood there holding the fish and looking around enjoying the day to the max. Released the sucker to see him swim right back into the hole and packed my gear to head home. As I pulled out of the park onto the wet road and traffic I took one last look back. Every once in a while as years passed had me thinking about going back but I just couldn't do it. Very few things in life are perfect but that day was and that's why it has remained my favorite fishing trip ever.

    True gamefish status, not just eliminate the commercial fishery for a fish grab for the rec anglers. Eliminate the commercial fishery. Reduce rec harvest by 98%. Allow for retention similar to FLA tarpon. You want to keep one - pay for the permit/tag. Have that cost north or $250 to limit its use.

    November 2018 Fishing Reports

    First outing this morning since the dirty water event. Was clean and green today with just a light rolling surf. The way things started it was looking like a day with the skunk. Took awhile, but finally got a hit and had the drag sing. Landed the first keeper size fish of the fall for me right at the 28 inch mark. Did some more walking and finished the morning with 5 including a better keeper size that put the drag to the test again. That one hit the tape at 32 inches. All hit one of my white swimmers and all safely released. Nice to finally see some better fish around. Had a small flock of birds picking here and there just out of casting range. Would like to think that maybe there were some of those sand eels around, but sure no evidence of that. Back out in the morning.

    A big Thank You to FishWeeWee

    I just want to thank Fishweewee [Ben]. I contacted him in private asking if he could recommend someone local to me in Monmouth Co. NJ that I could hire for one on one handgun training for my daughter. I received an simple reply back [ I can help, next Sat, Ben, with a phone #]. My youngest daughter Casey is currently in the Monmouth Co. Police Academy. Although she has been shooting with me for about 5 years or so, she was in need of fine-tuning her accuracy with the new firearm she needs to qualify with. We purchased the Sig. .40 when we knew that was the firearm she needed to master, but It is a lot of gun for shooter of smaller stature and small hands. All I can say is WOW! Within 30 minutes of working with her the improvement was amazing. He knows all the right ways to do things and the training tips and tricks to correct bad habits. After working on her form, grip, stance it improved her accuracy dramatically. He then began working with her on various shooting drills that may save her life one day. He covered clearing jamb's, shooting from cover vs. concealment and many more. He taught us both many drills she can practice on her own to continue to improve her gun handling skills. He drove down 90 Min. from Conn. and spent 5 hours + with her today out in the cold at my club's range. He wanted nothing in return and would not even let me cover his gas or toll expenses. The man took a day away from his own family to come help a total stranger and his daughter on something that could be of lifesaving consequences. Ben Thank You very much. I hope to see you at the fling next Sat. Jim Breese

    Show us your mangled hooks....

    In the early 80’s, six guys and myself shared a house on Block Island for several falls. For a couple of those years we started a collection of hooks that we straightened. We’d put them in a Skippy peanut jar dubbed “the jar of broken hearts”. A few of these hooks may have been bent on removal but not many, none that I remember. Primary bait was sand eels on most night and a lot of fish were hooked outside the mouth. My guess is that the bass were just sucking in a mouthful of bait and a plug and the hooks were not full in their mouths. Also guess it was leverage and not brut strength that did the bending. Hooks are 1/0 to 4/0 and mostly from needle fish and Red fins. We generally carried 4 to 6 plugs and a box of hooks.

    November 2018 Fishing Reports

    This is a report and PSA... MoCo Sunday, 1-4pm after an unsuccessful sit in the tree stand. One dink at 20". Flat stained water. A 1oz BT did the trick for me. PSA part - For the love of God, be mindful of where you are wading, and especially in places where there is strong current and a probability of waves/boat traffic, DON'T GO IN THE WATER. Sunday I watched a young kid, probably 16 years old get knocked over by a wave and get swept out 30ft off the beach at a very popular MoCo spot. He was standing further out than the rest of us on some shifty sand. Thankfully a bunch of us helped this kid get back to shore safely. Two guys snagged the kids waders with their lures just to have some sort of hold on him, otherwise he could have been swept out to sea. Wading helps get to spots sometimes. But, you can catch a bunch of fish ankle deep, and if you're not experienced, don't risk your a** over a fish. No fish is worth your life. To the guys that snagged that kid with your plugs, if you're on SOL, kudos to you. You saved his life.
