Summer Schools Have Arrived

Summers schools of Striped Bass have arrived right on time. Large crab eaters from the south roaming the flats, in one foot of water, destroying a top water plugs…

 

The Majority of my summer fishery revolves around the Chesapeake Bay stock of fish that  call southern New Jersey home up until the fall migration kicks in. What most refer to as ‘resident striped bass’.

Some are very large. Like the south western portion of the lower Chesapeake. These fish ply the grass beds in search of prey. This time of year they are looking for shedder crabs on our vast grass flats here in Stone Harbor/Avalon NJ. More on that and this unique in the near future..

The Night Shift…

What I really cut my teeth on when learning to fish the back bays. The Night Shift.

Over a decade ago, when I first got the boat I spent the first year exclusively fishing at night. The amazing things a saw and came to realize stuck with me. Not only the fishing but much of the wildlife that can only be seen lurking at night. During the course of a year the change of seasons , spawns, and migrations you really get an understanding of your quarry, it’s behaviors, and everything else that makes the marsh one of the most productive ecosystems in the country.

That will be revisited in a future in depth article. Now on to the report…
Last evening…Howling winds, huge tides and racing currents. An absolute awesome bite with staggering number of fish.

No matter the conditions this a special time of year.

Several all out Events going on at once that cannot afford to be overlooked. With the new moon tides ushering the spawn of just about every edible source in the back bay. 6 inch spearing , crimson cinders worms, and bay anchovies being devoured by huge coordinated wolf packs of striped bass.
