Fisherman Magazine Update

The Big Jamaica reported that yellowfin arrived at the Hudson late last week, and as of Thursday morning, October 13, the 3- to 6-foot seas offshore should give way to 4 to 7’s on Friday and are expected to fall to 3- to 6-foot seas on Saturday and Sunday – definitely improved conditions over the early week forecast. On the striper front, reports of the first “good” fish have begun to trickle in from along the New Jersey coast, with a 28-pounder plugged up in the past week, a 42-incher taken on the troll, and an “underground” report of a 39.7-pound bass caught by one surfcaster under cover of dark somewhere in the northern part of the state. While yet another E/NE push is expected to hit the coast through the weekend, surfcasters out front are waiting for the big push of striped bass armed. Dead stickers are going with clam, mullet and bunker, while pluggers look to darters, bucktails and poppers. From the canal rocks in Central Jersey, down along the T-Jetty in A.C. and sod banks of South Jersey, the inshore tautog action has been on fire. While just a one-fish limit until November 16 in New Jersey, the action has been amazing and has produced a few big sheepshead along the way; meanwhile, the Delaware limit of five tautog has folks hitting the Outer Wall for whitechins, where in addition to sheepshead a good triggerfish was reported back to Lewes Harbour earlier this week.
