Barnegat Fishing for Bass

This weekend we had a great group of guys from PA. John, Bill, Andy, and Paul out for there annual striped bass trip and decided to give Bottom Line a chance to put some big bass in the boat. With the weather really dictating when we could fish this week, we were up for the challenge. 

      So we left the dock around 7:30 and headed out Barnegat Inlet. There were alot of boats working the north jetty so we decided to go north in a rough NE pounding wind. We set up around Seaside and right away we had some action. Mostly shorts mixed in with large bluefish. I would say around 10:30 we were getting tired of playing with the blues and decided to move south. We put the wire lines in with some shads and tubes. We got about 15 yards and the game was on..None stop bass. All were around 20 pounds. And most of them were above the 28" minimum size, all stuffed with sand eels. After bringing about 20 bass in the guys wanted to try some jigging by the inlet. We really didn`t have much luck, just a few small blues and two dogfish. It was around 3pm and with a full cooler we headed in.. It was a great day of fishing. Thanks guys.

Barnegat Bay Famliy Fishing..

Sunday-11/7- Went out Sunday with the wife and kids for a family fun day of fishing. With the ocean being a mess and having the little guys on board I elected to stay inside. We wanted to fish around buoy 25 were Oyster Creek and Double Creek channels meet hoping for an afternoon bite. There were a few boats there so we dropped anchor East of the Oyster Creek side. I put a block of chum out and we started fishing. I used one rod with clam and the other with a live spot and the kids did what they wanted. Within a half hour the game was on. It was on a diamond jig that one of the kids was using. We started having some real fun with bass that were around 24-inches. We even had 3 weakfish and a couple of bluefish. These fish were great on light tackle and the kids were having a ball. When the bite slowed down and I saw an opening over were the two channels dump into each other. We drifted with some live spot for a while and picking up 2 more bass. I also saw two really nice bass picked up by boats next to us.

We will be doing open boat trips this Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday in the bay if the weather reports are right. So give us a call.

11/2 Barnegat Fishing Report

Tuesday 11/2 :  Open boat trip today with Matt R, Susan R, Bill the hammer, and Sammy V. Instead of leaving early morning everyone voted to try the afternoon bite. So we left the dock around 2:00pm and started right outside Barnegat Inlet with some birds working and the smell of bunker,  the day looked very promising. . 

We had our first bluefish in the boat in about ten minutes, then bluefish after bluefish it was nuts. Just droping jigs and reeling every time there was a bluefish. Sometimes I think we take these fish for granted, the smile they could put on someones face is great to see. I figured I better run alittle north to give everyones arms a rest. So we headed up towards the USCG station and saw some more birds working. Immediately got into some more bluefish, as the wind died down and the sun set the bluefish started coming up everywhere. So we pulled out some really light tackle and had a blast. The bluefish were as far as I could see. Mostly bluefish,  but we did have bass mixed in. The action was great at times, where we had all 3 guys and girl hooked up.

We had a few good cracks at some bass but the bluefish were every where and they were hungry. The bluefish were 6 to 12 pounds, and I think we managed to release about 50 fish. This was one of the best days of fall jiging we had in a long time.

Barnegat Inlet Fishing

10-24  Today we had the Sal Barenger charter on board consisting of Melton and his buddies Sammy and Ralph. Came out of Barnegat Inlet and had some birds so we started jigging and had some really nice size blues. Ralph nailed a 15 pound gator. Then as fast as the bite started it ended. So the boys really wanted bass so we put the wire poles in the water and started trolling noth of Barnegat Inlet. We got into a little better bluefish bite a bit further north but still no bass.We got a call that a couple of bass were taken up by seaside so we pulled the lines and headed up that way. And once again you got it bluefish.

We then got another call that the fish were there but out more in about 65ft of water. When we got there we found a good sized fleet, a few birds working and it seemed as if we missed the bite. We only picked up a handful of bluefish, as well as a few seabass on the jigs. Went up on the troll for the last hour and picked a few more gators on green tubes.

Very tough day for us - we had a bunch of blues in the 8-15 pound range, but no bass. Sal and his boys were a great crew - they fished hard all day and had a blast with the blues they caught. We covered a lot of ocean today to put some fish in the box; it just didn't happen for us!  
Two of the guys are coming back this weekend to try there luck again. So give us a call or e-mail us for private or open boat trips..

Barnegat Fishing 10/9

Today we had George, Sheila, Ed, Dan, and Catlin from PA on board for a mix bag & striper trip. We broke Barnegat Inlet around 7:30 and found birds working. So immediately we pulled out the jigs and snag gear for some bunker. After pulling a few in we continued to the Garden State North Reef. There were only a couple of us out there. After setting up we were on the black fish. Sheila and Catlin seemed to have the hot hand over the guy`s, picking several black fish. After two hours of black fish, sea robins, sand sharks, and even 1 huge fluke we decided to move in and try our luck on the troll. We trolled north of Barnegat Inlet with not even a knock down. Then moved more north to try some other spots hoping for that one big striper. With no such luck.

Overall it wasn`t our best trip but we still had alot of action and there`s nothing like fishing with a nice family.
