Fresh bunker!! We have it!

Picking at the stripers on the beach. No hot spot. They are spread out. But we would suggest Fenwick.

Shorts and a few keepers in the Inlet.

The troll on the inshore lumps has been hit and miss wioth some boats doing well. Jim Healy of Ocean View caught a 39 pounder on a Stretch 25 a couple of miles north of the Inlet. The lumps off Sea Colony have been producing too.

Finally a few fish to report...

17 pound striped bass caught on 3R's Thanksgiving Day. Also saw some pics of shorts from the Cape and heard about a 20 pounder caught up there as well.

A couple of blues caught in the Inlet this morning.

Have a little old fresh bunker left from Monday. More fresh ordered for tomorrow.

Nov 25 -

Two day northeast headed our way. Could this be the event that starts the striper run? Lets Hope!!

Nov 24 -

Received a report from Capt Scotty on the Rehoboth Star about some good tautog fishing over the weekend.


started out with another full boat of 25 reserved spots.. everyone was hoping for a nice day and a pleasant change of the weather with no wind in the forecast.. we steamed a 45 minute ride to the southeast.. anchored in 48 feet of water it took about 8 minutes to catch the first tog/ blackfish.. within 20 minutes a steady pick all around the boat..

some of the new tog fisherman took a bit of time to get the knack but caught on quick enough..

final tally was a complete boat limit.... everyone caught all day....

some notable high hooks....2 people caught 25 keepers each, only to keep their legal limit of 5 and releasing the rest.... some of our new toggers had 12- 17 each, only keeping the legal limit...

this was the best day i have ever seen in the 26 + years I have been running a headboat...

next trip December 5. 6, 7.... 6:30 departure and reservations required.. 732-692-9521 www.rehobothstar.com

The answer to the $64,000 question - yes we have fresh bunker. Finally got it at lunch time on Saturday after being out for 24 hours and what seemed like 4 bazillion phone calls!

The answer to the $63,999 question is that the fishing report still has not changed much. Short stripers in the Inlet with the occasional keeper on flies and bucktail during the day and live eels at night.

Tautog fishing in the Inlet and on the nearshore wrecks and reefs is good. We have live green crabs. Sand fleas are done for the year. Bloodworms are done for the yeat too.

The beach is producing sharks and skates.

There is hope. Still seeing reports of stripers on the beach in mid Jersey. And our water temp has finally dipped below 60 degrees.

Pretty weather in the forecast for Thanksgiving week. We will be open on Thanksgiving Day 6am-12pm.

Happy Turkey Day!
