Good Times Keep Rolling – por Dave Pickering
My son Jon landed this
near 40 inch striper from
the kayak today. Good
size fish are still in the mix. My son Ben holds a hefty
schoolie that he cought
recently at dark.
It’s been a real cold and windy week, but the fishing continues to be hot along the oceanfront. There have been lots of peanut bunker schools migrating along the south shore, and that has attracted a lot of bird activity and a lot of scattered schools of feeding stripers. While the majority of the fish this week have been schoolies, there have been some good size fish in the mix. On Sunday I fished with my son Ben.
We found big numbers of fish along one of the south shore beaches. While we had dozens of hefty schoolies, we also had four slot fish and one over slot fish. It was all on jigs….bucktails as well as Cocahoes. Yesterday I scouted around and fished a number of spots. I found schoolies in one location in the daytime, and after dark I had a solid slot (30 to 32 inches) along with another near slot. Cocahoes caught all my fish. Today, my son Jon got out in the kayak. He had only one fish but it was a whopping 38 to 40 inches.
So, fishing is still very productive as we approach Thanksgiving. With a lot of people off from work on this holiday week, I’m sure many will be wetting a line. You should have no trouble finding fish along the oceanfront.
