Nasty weather dominated this month, but the fishing was very good except for 2 trips.Soft plastics, chasing birds, a little trolling was the way for us to catch these fish. Gary Lauderman had my last trip of the year with tremendous fishing with fish to almost 30 lbs. A great way to end my season, super fishing, very nice weather and a real fun group of guys!!
Just like the first half of the month, fishing remains very good on most trips. The EEL bite dried up but the arrival of jumbo fish make everyone very happy. Fish to over 40lbs!! Trolling, spoons, Mo-Jo rigs, throwing topwater and soft plastics are all producing depending on the day. Rod Bates and his crew had a trip to remember when his dad hooked a 41 and 39 on the Mo-Jo rig, landing booth trophy size bass. 80lbs of bass at one time!!
Pretty decent fishing from anywhere from the back of Raritan Bay,m Ny harbor out east past Debs. Fishing EELS, throwing plastics and hard baits and some Trolling. Exceptional size bass for the Fall fishing. No bluefish, which is unusual. We did find weakfish in good numbers when we fished for them. Weather played a huge obstacle, mother nature was a huge factor all year. Why stop now!!!! Some days it was lights out, other days the crew had to fish hard to catch.
