    Re: Striper Surf Reports ?

    Montauk has been hot for the past few weeks with more stripers than you know what to do with. Today was on/off/on/off/on from the reports I got from friends on the water. Yesterday was on most of the day, later in the day the commercial guys came in and scooped up loads of bass.
    Jersey has been on and off as well. Bas at the hook if you are there at the right time. Its been consistant in certain areas during moving water. Asbury area has seen fish as well.

    The albie fishing has slowed in Montauk but fish can be found if you look for them. Once the big push of fish move out of Montauk it will only be days before they are all over the jersey coast. The big bass have still not showed on eastern LI, that will take some time and wont be til probably early to mid nov when the herring show.

    Thanks for the good reports, perhaps this thread can keep going during the next 4-6 weeks.

    Fished Island Beach State Park yesterday. Skunked on about 3 hours effort. A few fish taken on clams. Some bait moving through but all out beyond the bar.

    Don't worry about the skunking. Its still too early for IBSP. Fish need to move out of LI and hit SH heavy b4 you will see a good amount down there. Another couple weeks.

    Fished Sandy Hook early Sat morning, some mullet in around but nothing on them, no one really catching anything, other then few shorts on clams.
    I am going to Montauk next week, I will ask the bass to start making their way down here AFTER my trip

    About the hook, As I wrote in my post the other day..."Bas at the hook if you are there at the right time. Its been consistant in certain areas during moving water" That is definetely holding true. You need to be in "certain areas" to find consistant fish. I believe we may have a report here soon that a fellow boardmember may have found that "certain area" today!

    Re: Striper Surf Reports ?

    Fished the Hook today from the small boat. The morning was slow, but, from 1PM on the place was on FIRE! Got a few in the boat, but decided to beach it in favor of fishing from the beach. The incoming tide with the wind behind it made for alot of wave action and the bait was getting pummeled for 4 solid hours. I left them biting.

    Most times when I've encountered this situation, the birds are the only thing feeding on the bait. Not today. The bass had the bait pinned in this little cove for hours. You could blind cast or fish to busting bait, didn't matter, you hooked up. At times on every cast. Most fish were 24 to 28 ins. with the bigger fish going 15 lbs. There were some bigger blues around also. You didn't need to cast more than 20 ft. I would say the best day of bass fishing I've ever had.

    Get out there at first light and in the evening if you live local. If this was a Sat. night, I would have returned the boat at 5PM and made the short drive to the Hook and walked to this spot. If I lived local, I'd be at the bay somewhere looking every day right now.

    What type of bait were they feeding on? Time to break out the vise again and tie some more salt patterns.

    Mike, This time of year you will see Peanut Bunker as the main source of food. Some Mullet and also som Rain fish. If you are going to tie.... big deceivers will work fine. When fish are blitzing like this pretty much anything you toss that can be seen will be eaten.

    We are talking stripers and bluefish here. They are not too picky this time of the year. THey eat as if they were going to the chair tomorrow.

    Re: Striper Surf Reports ?

    I was out in Raritan Bay (not on my couch or a computer) on Columbus Day and searched from Breezy Point across to the Verrazano, down to Great Kills Harbor, then across to Horseshoe Cove and then finally down the Sandy Hook Beaches...NOTHING! We must have completed that loop 7-8 times before we went back to the dock, very disappointing. The Jersey Shore is so hit or miss because it lacks structure to hold the bait in "certain spots". Sometimes you have a better chance of getting polio than getting a striper
