Topwater and swim baits have been producing and fly fishing with sinking lines has been excellent. The shallow water bite has also picked up with topwater plugs.

Even with crazy weather patterns lately fishing has still been good. Stripers and a few blues are breaking on top. Fishing structure has been producing some nice stripers. With water temps dropping shallow water fishing is picking up also. This week we caught some sea trout which have been scarce for years.

Fishing has still been great for the past two weeks. Stripers. Bluefish and Spanish mackerel have been breaking on top in multiple locations. Fly fishing or spin fishing on the surface has been great. Casting or jigging L’l Bunker spoons has been catching good numbers of keeper size striped bass. These spoons have also accounted for most of the mackerel caught. Fly fishing with sinking lines has also been doing well.

When the weather cooperated the fishing the past week has been good. Casting topwater either on fly or spin tackle had been great for breaking stripers. Jigging for stripers has also been productive. This weekend a group of us took out 24 wounded warriors fly fishing and had the best fishing we have ever had for this group. This was the 7th annual event done with Project Healing Waters.

Breaking stripers and bluefish have still been great. Good numbers of keeper size stripers are being caught. The size and number of blues depends on where we fish each day. Seeing Spanish mackerel but haven’t caught one yet. This is great time to fly fish and also to take kids fishing.

Stripers and bluefish have been breaking in a lot of different areas on the bay. Swimbaits, spoons and topwater plugs are all catching fish. Fly fishing with clousers, poppers and gurglers are working great. This a great time for novice fly fishermen.

Stripers and bluefish breaking on the surface has been spectacular. Poppers and gurglers on the fly rod bring big strikes. Spoons and poppers on spin tackle are also wearing arms out. Saw the first Spanish mackerel of the year.
