  1. Nice morning to be out and really nice low tide water with a rolling surf. The word must have slowly gotten out as the number of surfers grew through the morning. Still not a lot going on. Could see some bunker out there along with a few washed up on the sand. Wind shifter to the SSE so you could feel the cold in the air off the water. Did find a couple small ones with one not much bigger then the white swimmer. Second one hit the yellow sand eel and was a bit bigger. Still waiting on some better fish to make a move.
  2. Beautiful morning to be out but still very quiet when it comes to catching any fish. Found one little guy and nothing more. Lots of bunker swimming around from the break line on out. Every one of them had a happy face on. Water temp should make a big move this week with warm weather on the way. Have to hope that will finally open things up.
  3. Ocean is flattening out with that WNW wind and still rather chilly out there this morning. Was able to side step the skunk just before heading home fortunately. Pulled out one little one with stripes and a couple of small blues sacrificing a white swimmer in the process. Lots of bunker out of range with some small blowups at times. Still much too quiet. Wanted to try sending out some bugs, but there was no moving water to be found. Grandpa duty tomorrow so back out on Saturday.
  4. Passed right through. Guess they knew I wasn't going to be successful anyway.
  5. Nope, didn't happen this morning. Made a trip to the deep south and saw a bunch of dolphins feeding on bunker, a whale make an appearance, and one small school of blue fish chomping way out of casting range. Air and water way too cold this morning. Will stick closer to home in the tomorrow.
  6. Ok, so whoever is out there hiding all the fish, jokes over. You made your point and fools out of a lot of us, but let's move on! Another day of great conditions and nothing out there, at least for me. Hit three different spots in the southern part of the county and not even a bump. And Bob, you may be on to something about that fish Brian posted. Looks a little frosty to me too
  7. Another morning of great conditions and no fish. Had one sand eel tail get chopped off and that was it. Started further north then I have been fishing and then moved south to no avail. Will have to decide what direction to head in the morning.
  8. Crossed the boarder this morning and made the trek to the south land. Expected to see a Saturday morning crowd, but had the place I stopped to myself. Great looking water, as we have seen most of the spring, with no wind and some nice surf action. Did manage to break the skunk string by finding 2 that were at least much bigger then the runts we have been seeing. Both went for the yellow sand eel. After a few hours of walking the cabbage started to move in, which was unexpected, along with seeing a seal pop up. That was the sign to call it a morning.
  9. My reports is not much different then the rest and no changes from the past few days. Started back on the river, moved to the beach, hit a couple of different areas, just nothing happening. Nice morning to be out, it's just crazy how quiet it is. When all the usual bluefish hot spots are deserted you know the bite has cooled. Looking forward to the ENE wind that has started to kick in. Might try and give it a look this evening.
  10. Wind shift from yesterdays ENE has settled the surf down but the same result, nothing happening. Had one little guy grab the paddle tail as it was coming out of the water, other wise all quiet. Guess I will do a little more chopper hunting since the stripes still haven't made a move yet.
  11. Real bassy looking water this morning with that light ENE wind, just couldn't find any fish enjoying the suds. Started at a spot that has had lots of blues and people around but those that were there looking for a repeat of the last couple of days left disappointed. Moved a bit to the south but still came up empty. Had one swimmer sliced up and that was it. Headed for home and will get back out again in the morning.
  12. That's possible. If I had the second rod on my back, that was me. Went back out late afternoon and the circus was still in town, but not too many fish being pulled in. Stayed away from the crowd looking for strays and only had one wack but not to the hook. Grandpa duty for me today, back out tomorrow.
  13. Hit the back river this morning and nothing happening so move to the beach side. Nice water but same story, nothing. Headed toward home and saw 4 head boats out her on the beach so put the gear back on and gave it a go. All I could produce was a chopped off swimmer. Guys on the rock were picking at the blues but was turning out to be a bit of a circus for me so called it a morning. There were some nice fished pulled, but it was a slow pick. About ready to head back out to see if they have moved closer to the sand.
  14. Report as little or as much detail as you would like to provide the reader but please don't post specific street names or areas. A specific spot is too much information! It's not like telling a friend or two, posting it here is telling thousands. Doing so only creates crowds, garbage, and loss of our spots. Try to keep other conversations, inquires, and rants in separate threads. For example, you can say that you caught fish in Ocean County but saying that you got them at Ocean Beach is a no-no. The terms to use are...…. Monmouth County Ocean County Atlantic County Cape May County North Jersey for the Hudson and other backwaters. County name plus "In the back" for Inlets, Rivers, and Bays.
  15. Went out looking for some choppers this morning in the wind and low water in the back. Gave it a go for a couple hours, but not a touch. Nobody else was doing anything either. Moved out front and fished the dirty water casting with the wind. Found one with stripes about 20 inches on the yellow and white swimmer. Back out Monday.
