It was an absolutely awesome day today for it being the last week of November.  It was cloudy for most of the day, but the temperatures were pleasant and the wind was light and variable.  There were a lot of people out on the streets and doing their Black Friday shopping, but there were also a lot of anglers out on the water taking advantage of the nice conditions.  Folks were fishing on the local party boats, from the Oceanic Pier and from their own boats and fishing was really, really good.

The reports coming in from the local party boats today were of some awesome sea bass fishing.  Captain Monty Hawkins on the Morning Star reported good sea bassing with many limits and the ocean was very calm.  There were some bruiser fish caught on board today like this 23 1/2″ monster.

Captain Chris Mizurak on board the Angler out of the Talbot Street Pier reported some really good fishing as well with just about everyone on board getting their 15 fish limit of sea bass.  There were some big bass caught on the Angler as well and even a flounder and nice triggerfish.

The bay fishing over the past few weeks has been really good for rockfish, trout, red drum and tautog.  Bear down at the Oceanic Pier submitted some photos of some of the great fishing that went on today.  First thing this morning it was Howard with a nice keeper rockfish and a beauty of a red drum.

Just a little while later it was a shot of Mrs. Seseri who caught two nice trout from the pier with a jig head and a white Gulp artificial.


And the bite continues tonight as Bear submitted this photo of two young anglers with a couple of red drum caught as I was writing the report.


Speaking of red drum, my buddy Eric Sexton put the smack down on them today.  Eric was fishing with Tod Cannady on the south jetty and caught a total of 12 red drum and a ton of throwback rockfish.

I got a submission through the Facebook page from Joey Collins who reported that he, Jason Snader, Ryan Snader, Dave Weller and another Dave got the speckled trout good in the surf today.  The crew caught 18 specks and three drum for an awesome day on the beach.
