25 days until Christmas. Where did this year go ??

 

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.

Late afternoon, for an hour, MoCo. A couple of shorts. Quieted down a bit from the last couple of days. Will see what it looks like in the morning. Rain started as I was leaving the beach.

Had 5 fish this morning 4 were in the dark on black needlefish.  1 on the jig + teaser combo later in the morning.  Biggest was barely 20".  A lot slower today but I heard the bite picked up again at dark with guys getting fish on plugs with a couple of keepers plus many more rats.  

 

@BrianZ you made me a believer in the dark again man we went out extra early, right tide, and caught fish in the pitch black lol

Saw 200 guys surf fishing today on Jersey shore, only saw a few shorts caught. Got one on sand eel teaser. Great day to fish, good temp, water clean & calm, little wind, bait in water, just need some more fish.

Went back out late afternoon till just after dark and was able to get another 9.  Last one was one of the fattest 25 inch fish I've ever seen.  Fish are certainly more active in the light of day.  May not be back out tomorrow, maybe late in the day.

Man, I’m not sure where you guys were but I am glad I was nowhere near you.  I had the place to myself. Could have been butt naked and nobody would’ve cared in schoolie city
