  1. Maybe it is worth a try to break out the diamond jigs.
  2. Its about an hour and 20 minutes for me I always put them on when I get there. I'd rather be confortable for the drive ... But If I am moving from one spot to another, I'll keep them on ..
  3. I still have not caught a keeper yet this year .... Still trying though ..
  4. I was wondering what kind of gloves are you wearing in the picture
  5. Tiderunner ?

  7. MoCo Last Night 11:30 PM to 1:30 AM Light Rain winds 5-10 K from the North. rain stopped after about half hour and winds gradually shifted to the NW at 5-10K. Big 3-4 ft waves with lots of white water. I tried the SS Bottle Plug first, but it was getting washed around and I didn't think it was digging in enough in the rough surf. I switched over to a 1 oz bucktail with Pork Rind. Waves were still washing my bucktail all around and eventually switched over to 1.5 oz Jetty Caster with Pork Rind. Skunk for me... Didn't see anybody get anything the whole time I was there. Couldn't see how dirty the water got last night.... Can anybody comment on the water clarity today?
  8. Last Night MoCo 5:00 PM to 8:15 PM. Light North wind... Flat calm with occasional 2ft swells that seem to sneak up on you... Not even a bump ... Skunk for me. Only saw 1 small schoolie caught the whole time I was out.
  9. Awesome, That is a fish of a lifetime !! Congratulations!!
  10. Not really a fishing report, but more of a water clarity report. I took my son for a Drive on Sunday afternoon into South MoCo to scout some new spots and I found surprisingly clean calm water. Don't know what it is going to be like after today though .... Unfortunately, I didn't have time to wet a line ...
  11. I started fishing the night tides because I mostly had work or family obligations during the day. I have found that most of the time the night tides are more productive. I guess the exception is when the bunker starts migrating down the beaches this time of year, that seems to be mostly a daytime bite. It takes a little getting used to, but its worth it. Try to get out before sunset and stay into the night. That way your eyes slowly adjust to the darkness. You will be surprised how much you can see at night after your eyes adjust.
  12. Love the shows from that era, my favorite shows are from that time frame. But you have to go back a little farther to include the Pigpen era. I always like to jam to shows in the car on my way to the beach. But when I get to the beach, I want to hear the sounds of the ocean .... As for Scouting in the dark ... I'm not sure if I would smell bunker, but you can easily hear bunker tail slapping the waters surface. Its a very distinctive sound.. it can be very hard to see bait rippling the surface after it gets dark, but I find that a lot of times I get to see the bait scatter when I reel my lure through the school. Last night I noticed bait scattering as I was reeling in my lure. Looked like grass shrimp to me .....
  13. MoCo last Yesterday 4:30 PM to 8:30 PM Bigger waves than I expected and a pretty stiff south wind yesterday. Water was kinda stained. Still there were some small stripers around. I caught one mini ... lost another. I sure hope some bigger fish show up, last fall was a mini marathon ..
  14. I started a thread for November ....
  15. Try to keep other conversations, inquires, and rants in the appropriate threads. If you have a question about something that would make a good thread on it's own, please start one. For all of you new to the site, this is how you should make your report. It's up to you how much information you give, but please keep it within the rules and no spot-burning or specific locations. Out front (oceanfront) or In the back (rivers, bays, and inlets), Conditions What you were fishing for, What you were using, What you caught. You can say that you caught fish in Ocean County but saying that you got them at Ocean Beach is a no-no. The location terms to use are.......... Monmouth County Ocean County Atlantic County Cape May County North Jersey for the Hudson and other waters north of Raritan Bay. County name plus "In the back" for Inlets, Rivers, and Bays.
