Happy New Year you bunch of animals.

 

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.

Its not over.  Oh the fish may be smaller but a tight line sure beats the heck out of sitting around the house or catching up on the honey-do list.  This could be a good time to catch your first bass of the year.  As I mentioned in past posts.... This is the time of year I loved to use a small lead head and a gray sluggo and bounce the bottom with slow retrieve to imitate the elusive sand eels.  Find some structure and work around it.  I use to step down the tackle and use lighter rods and line. Smaller fish and more fun on the light stuff.

I had my wife drop me and all my gear at the lot at Holgate and sent her shopping for a few hours. 
No fish and no life in sight so I call BS on this report.

No walking or unregistered vehicles allowed on that bridge so, no luck.
