May 2022 Fishing Reports

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.

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.

 

Try to keep other conversations, inquires, and rants in separate threads.

I hit up a bay beach and caught a skunk tonight.  I did see a few really small dink bass caught on bait.  By far the most exciting thing I seen was a bald eagle swoop down, grab a meal and then start eating it down the beach from me.

Quiet morning a few rainfish around, light NE wind and sun made it feel good. Mildly concerned about the lack of bunker around but let’s see what happens when we get a more prevailing w/nw wind

Gave it a shot out front this AM, SoMoCo. Beautiful morning. Nice light NE, middle of incoming, great surf conditions. Saw an osprey swing and miss on a dive and a couple of dolphin. Couldn’t resist trying bugs and finally broke the skunk streak with 1 24” schoolie. Had another hit that stole bait but that was it.

You get bonus points for fishing moco out front and with bugs when nobody else is. And modest too that fish looks way bigger then 24"

Thanks Bro. In my head, I’m saying if there’s no bait and they’re chewing on clam, why not bugs.

They were stacked in a certain area up here a few weeks ago, now not so much.

He's not modest. He's an expert on angle close up shots. 12" = 24", 25" = 37", etc. Please don't encourage him. That's enabling. We need to give time for his therapy to work.
