Good Sea Bassin’

Good Sea Bassin’

It rained today…..surprise, surprise.  It’s getting to be little ridiculous really.  More than 20 days of measurable rain in the past three weeks has really made it tough for anglers to get excited about fishing.  It’s tough to get in the mood to drop a line when you’re waiting for the rain to stop, or when rain is forecast for the afternoon and you don’t know if you should take the gamble of trying to get a trip in before it starts.  The next few days look dry and a couple of days next week look downright beautiful so hopefully a better weather pattern is on the way.

Now that the tautog limit has been lowered to two fish per person until November 1, party boats and bottom fishermen will be switching their tactics to target black sea bass and flounder.  The sea bass season opened on Sunday, but was blown out due to high winds.  Captain Monty on The Morning Star got out yesterday and had a good day, but had to travel back to the dock in some pretty rough seas.  Even though it rained today, ocean conditions were much better.

Captain Chris Mizurak on The Angler was out on the ocean today and reported good sea bassin’ with some limits around the rail.  There were also some really nice sea bass caught and a handful of keeper tautog.  The sea bass were enticed with jigs and clam.
