I stopped in Fisherman's HQ yesterday for some business with the Barnegat HS Fishing Club, but heard of some hookups at the inlet via boat. Spot still remains the top bait by boaters, and surf fisherman have had some hookups along open beaches.
Fished Thanksgiving morning 4am to 6am with a friend and ending up with 4 Striped Bass - all fish were caught on the 6' Berkley PowerBait Swim Shad - Watermelon Pearl worked slow.
I have been working on the website and trying to fix all of the bugs - looking forward to prepping for next season. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
