Unfortunately we’ve reached the time of year that fishing reports are going to be few and far between. Although air temperatures have been cooperating really nicely lately and several records have been broken recently with some highs in the 70s, the wind has not. Sea conditions have just not allowed many anglers to get outside of Ocean City inlet. The few boats that have been able to get out and give it a try in the unfavorable conditions have not had any luck.
I did receive a report from at least one boat that fished today and had 0 luck. The report was that once again the fish were being caught north of Ocean City off the coast of New Jersey. Atlantic City seemed to be the hot spot today for boats that wanted to make the run, but for most anglers 75 miles is just too far to run for a rockfish.
The silver lining is that the fish are still being caught to our north and there are still some fish being reported north of New Jersey. If the stars align and the weather cooperates we could have another run of fish any day. Hopefully with the warm air and water temperatures the scenario is setting up for us to have some good fishing for rockfish into January and February.
