Finally a fish!
It’s been a rough fall for my fishing since I’ve not been finding any stripers in my go to fall locations.

Between the freshwater flooding and the warm weather the fish haven’t been where I’ve been fishing.

I finally found a few stripers in shallow water including this barely legal 19 incher. With the water temps in the mid 60s, I’m hopeful things will start looking up!

Canal Blackfish
First time that I hit the canal this fall. Bite was picky as they’d bite for 10-15 minutes then stop for the same length of time. My son did catch a 16” keeper on a jig. Fished from high water slack into the first half of the out going tide.

Bluefish Bonanza At The Reef
The bluefish jig bite was on fire today at the Shark River Reef. This is one of over 30 that I put over the rail today. In addition, I caught several dinner plate porgies and some out of season bluefish. Several false albacore and one Spanish mackerel were also caught.

Best Of The Year
Wasn’t sure what to expect after a week of rain and east wind. Water wasn’t as dirty as I had anticipated. Arrived for the last 2.5 hours of the incoming tide and left and hour into the outgoing. Had my first bite in @15-20 minutes and knew it was a good one. The result was this #5.41 24.5” fluke. Bite wasn’t as fast as my last few trips here but I did manage to catch 4 more (although no more keepers). Saw one other keeper caught and a good amount of shorts.

No Mahi But We Found Some Fluke
One short of a two man limit. Started off looking for mahi but after checking the range buoy and pot hopping we didn’t see any signs we switched gears and dropped bucktails for fluke. Found a nice patch but couldn’t put that last one in the boat before the southeast wind kicked up creating a 2+ knot drift. Did catch and release a nice out of season sea bass. Saw several pods of dolphins when we broke the inlet and also came across a 6’+ blacktop or spinner shark later in the day.

Fish Smorgasbord
Enjoyable and fish filled day with Jason at the Inlet. I caught @15 fluke and one banded rudder fish. Jason had a smorgasbord with sea bass, a banded rudder fish, one big ugly star gazer, a nice snapper blue and some short fluke. He topped off his catch with this nice 22”+ fluke.

Couple of side notes; #1 we were there when they brought in the injured crew men from the sand dredging barge. Jason got a look at the injured and said one looked in bad shape., #2 We noticed a diver working east of us (nothing unusual about that)- however as time went on he not only worked his way down towards us but further off the wall until he was a good 30 feet out. To top it off, his dive flag got wet so any and all boats would have a difficult time in spotting. Anyone who knows the inlet knows that bend by the monument where both party boats and commercial boats exit and enter- well he was right in the middle. He got lucky that none of those came through, although a jet ski did run over his dive line that connected him to his dive buoy. Not only did he turn the bite off for those he was in front of (he was spear fishing). He became very confrontational when we informed him of the danger he was in and how he was effecting those of us who were fishing . I finally flagged down a passing state police boat who told him he was a dumb shit before telling him to either get out of the water or go closer to the wall. Darwinism.9/3/18.

Manasquan Inlet Variety Pack
Timed my arrival to coincide with last 90 minutes of the incoming tide and fished through the first two hours of the outgoing. I noticed this seem to be when I had the best action there this summer-especially on the incoming where I found a small tip that forms where the fluke stack up. Ended up catching 12 fluke to 17”s but also all very chunky. In addition, I landed two over grown snappers and a few pin sea bass. Tons of bait being flushed out on the outgoing.

Slow Day At the Canal
Cliff and I fished the canal for about 4 hours from 6:15-10:15am. We only managed 16 total tog, which is a very slow day for us there. We think it was because the water temp was up to 75 degrees today from all the warm weather. Cliff did manage the first keeper since tautog season reopened. A nice 16 inch fish pictured above.
