Wanted to ask what you fine folks have observed about striper behavior once the mercury rises. I'm sure we've all heard that they become nocturnal come summertime, escaping to deeper offshore water on July days. How true is this?
I have been fishing for a long time, but one thing that I have never gotten into was the whole after-dark sector of fishing. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on what to start out throwing at night in the surf. I feel like (In my past experiences) I have always done very well around dusk, and then the fishing fades as the sun begins to dip way down. However, I know that some people are extremely successful during the night and I figured that I should give it a try... Keep in mind that I am fishing NJ beaches in the Cape May area. Not sure if that will have much effect, but I figured that I should put it out there. Looking for any tips on: Lures Colors Location (General, I.E. Open beach, Jetties, Structure) Time (After dusk, Middle of the night, Before Daybreak) Anything else that may help me find some fish in the dark Thanks for any help in advance. Salty
So there is a spot I frequent close to home in the bay. It’s a night time only spot, my schoolie spot basically. When I plan to fish this location generally I bring smaller lures. Keitech’s, 1/2 oz or less buck tails, unweighted plastics and the such. I have caught many bass there but never one over 26”. This spring it’s been loaded and I mean loaded with adult bunker. Generally the seem unmolested but sporadically I witness some large splashes so I’m pretty sure there being preyed upon somewhat. In this location the water is almost always flowing right to left and to my left is a bridge, so this limits my casting presentation a little as far as being able to fish with or against the current. I’ve thrown larger stuff trying to match the hatch of big adult bunker but have had zero success doing so. Finally! If you made it this far my question is what would you throw in this situation? And are you retrieving with or against the current? Does that usually matter?
Good afternoon everyone, I fish the canal for stripers a couple of nights a week but I wanted to try something new tonight. I have my father here all the way from Europe and I am looking to go fish for some Black Sea bass. I was planning to hit the canal on the west side as it easily accessible for him but I never fished sea bass there. I was wondering if anyone had any luck catching them there at night (saw some reports in previous years posts). Alternatively I would welcome any suggestions around easily accessible jetties/piers that I could hit in the buzzards bay area with potential to produce some sea bass. I am traveling from Boston and I am not very familiar with the area outside of the canal so I would welcome any suggestion you are comfortable making as I would like my dad to have a good time tonight. Thanks a lot!
