  1. years back before beach replenishment ruined all the structure inshore we would fish a jetty on DB side of CM and catch flounder in the jetty pocket and rip at the end with a 1/2 oz white bt and a 5" squid strip by using a slow bounce and retrieve 5to 10 flounder in the 2 to 5 lb range were common all you needed was clean water and some tide movement but not now
  2. not too far if you start in Florida
  3. it is only closed for stripers but there is not much else to catch unless you can find some winter flounder or perch
  4. not much doing in the bay till the spring then I would fish CMP and the canal area by the ferry. The beach is pretty much the same from the villas to reeds beach flat and shallow
  5. I had bladder cancer 2 x in the last 5 years luckily it was easy to clean up I go for checkups every 6 months not fun but you have to go if you want to stay clean. now if I could only catch something every once in a while but beach fishing in SJ is like fishing in the desert
  6. raise the fines substantially and make them post a high bail and confiscate equipment and vehicles and jail time for repeat offenders
  7. years back a bft was caught at CMP and was weighed at local B&T and when fish & game were called they confiscated the fish
  8. me too, I hate the cold and wind seems like once you get chilled you can not shake it off
  9. Would be happy to send some your way just can not find any up here
  10. I fish all the same areas and I have not seen a bluefish this year SJ is the dead sea
  11. Has anyone seen any gator blues yet, usually have a run in the late fall?
  12. I like fishing bridges and beaches at nights but on real dark nights I avoid jettys and sod banks
  13. most beaches in SJ are flat and shallow if you are throwing bait you will need distance 11' if you are throwing plugs and bucktails 9' or so in SJ distance helps
  14. 8' to 10' but I am in SJ so what do I know
