Fisherman Magazine Update

Onshore winds heading into the weekend are predicted by NOAA to turn W/NW by Monday which hopefully will trigger more of the bait migration, bring about some cooler water temps and prompt a steadier bite of striped bass and bluefish along the coast. A few 20-pound-plus stripers reported along the North/Central coast, while a surprising number of redfish and sheepshead have been registered from South Jersey down along the Delaware Coast. With weakfish reported in many of the old-time usual haunts, we should expect a few speckled trout to appear for sharpies in The Fisherman’s southern region. Blackfish are inshore, out back and along the jetties, presenting a perfect opportunity for light tackle action for those interested in fine tuning their jig game. And with warmer temps, expect more false albacore to pop up along the inshore grounds under the birds – reports from the north show that little tunny run is most certainly not done! The Dream Boat Challenge is entering the homestretch, so look for bruiser bluefish appearing from a bit offshore, possibly pushed in tighter this weekend with the easterly blow.
