Congratulations Nikita Grantham of Atlantic City for bringing in the first Striped Bass of March 1st, 2015, which was also over 20# (a Monster, almost 30#, 29.4#) and Louis Pabon of Galloway Twp. Number 2 a 15# beauty. Yes, they came from Oyster Creek, but these guys are local regular customers and made the ride and made it work. They said they saw plenty more and bigger fish moving so Striper Season is Officially open and you can say what you want about fishing in a warm water discharge, but it obviously works and you might want to give it a try.

The 2015 Season Has Begun

I started writing an opening day report this morning and it is already old news.  Striped Bass #1 and #2 have already been caught and presented here.  The story is at the top of the page and more on the "First Stripers of the Season" can be found here. Here's the start of todays report:

It's Opening Day of Striped Bass Season ... it's also the middle of an Artic Deep Freeze, something I never expected and have never seen on March 1st. Whatever the weather I'm Here and expect to be Open every day until Christmas. Because of the freeze up I did not rush to put Bloodworms and Surf Clams in stock. I do not expect local fish to bite this week, except there is a decent White Perch bite thru the ice at the dredge hole on Bass River next to the Parkway... Read More...

Striped bass, charter,

Spring Striper Fishing is right around the corner.  The season officially starts March 1st, but the heavy action starts a little later.  I will start trips as soon as I get some steady reports.  The last couple years I've run some "Mullica River Specials" where we target Stripers and White Perch.  The Stripers have been a little short, but the Perch go in the box and into the frying pan.


  Spring Striper Trips are a mix of bait and lures.  Bloodworms and the first Mullica River Bait with Grass shrimp for the White Perch.   Eels are the first Live Baits and at times River fish will eat them with abandon.    In the Back Bay we will use whatever works.  Surf Clams, Blood Worms and Bunker Chunks are tops until we can get Live Spot or other swimming baits.  Jigs tipped with GULP are another early fish getter and believe me we'll use whatever it takes.

My 20' Scout boat powered by a 175 Suzuki 4 stroke for a dependable quiet ride to the grounds and a Trolling motor and full complement of electronics is the perfect combination to keep us right on the fish.
