Making it through the long haul until the spring.
It was the jersey shore’s turn this past week or so, as the incredible biomass of stripers made another move. Island Beach State Park and other usual surfcasting haunts got red hot during cold temps of late November. Well deserved for local anglers after missing out on last year’s run due to access issues from Sandy. A17’s, the mini version of the A27 aka 2013’s best lure for the surf, fooled a few straggler stripers. Aside from the occasional keeper, seasoned surfcasters with a knack for reading the beach got into fun pockets of schoolies and micro bass. A great sign to see small fish most likely from the spring spawn holding their own in the ocean.

They are like homing pigeons and leave the area in the same season
They taste like an old boot.
They are not very smart.
They fight like crazy
Inept anglers can even catch them
What do you think?

Can the money from the stocking of bows be used elsewhere?

The 2013 season held more than just the usual preseason unknowns. Just about every fishing story told now is prefaced with the before or after Sandy classifications. A shortened striper and tog season in 2012 for many fueled the desire for so many anglers to show it would take more than a storm and its heartache to keep lines out of the water.
Be it the porgies and sea bass on the reefs, togs on the wrecks, tuna or shark offshore, there isn’t a fisherman in these parts that doesn’t hold a place in their heart for the striped bass.
