More Stripers and Weakfish

Fished with Jay and Jake in the bay. We had lots of small stripers, a few weakfish, and the first flounder of the year. The action was good and tons of fun on the right tackle. Pro Tip: Pay attention to what you were doing right before a bite. Replicate that retrieve. Program yourself to remember what triggered the bite. Don't forget in the excitement of catching a fish.

Stripers and Weakfish

Fished with the Mikes. The spring action is here and the fishing is good. We had constant action with small stripers and decent sized weakfish. The action was very good. Pro Tip: Slow is key for early season fish. However, always experiment. Different species like different retrieves.

Spring Bass

Doug and I headed out to do some prospecting. It was my first trip out in New Jersey this spring. My trips to Florida and the cold weather delayed my progress. Anyway, enough excuses. We found the schoolie bass and released over a dozen up to 24". Pro Tip: Water temp is always important. Even a few degrees warmer in the spring makes a huge difference.
