Fisherman Magazine Update

Frightening satellite imagery from Hurricane Matthew racing through the Caribbean presented an ominous forecast for the southeast United States heading into the weekend; one of the latest computer models as Matthew making landfall in South Florida early Friday morning, hugging the coast through Saturday and perhaps veering eastwards by Sunday, possibly even stalling off the southeast coast for several days. While we all hope Matthew leaves quickly, all eyes will continue to monitor the storm for any potential tracking towards our region – until then, bait is back on the move along the coast with stripers whacking Super Strikes, Tsunami Talking Popper XD plugs, as well as various darters and swimmers in the wash. Good body of fish reported in the New York metro, lower Hudson and East River, which could be a strong indication of a solid fall run beginning in the next few weeks. A few reports of false albacore in the wash from Sandy Hook down to Island Beach, while it’s been tog on the rocks and sedge banks throughout South Jersey and along the Delaware coast. An intensifying yellowfin bite at the Wilmington last week, though offshore forecast is one that has boats at the dock until sometime next week, when hopefully conditions will allow and the tuna will be on the feed.
