The only bends in rods we are hearing of lately is Blackfish. This seems to be a banner season for these hard fighting great eating fish. You are allowed 6 fish at 15″ till Dec. 31st. So there is still time to hop on a party boat and load the freezer for the winter. Five shopping days till Christmas! We still have plenty of great buys for that special angler in your life… John Yac
The only action we are hearing of is up north, short bass but plenty of them! These fish are taking SP style swimmers with or without teasers. As far as local action, black fish is about the only thing happening… John Yac
Dress warm and you will be just fine! Light tackle is the way to go this time of year, along with that comes smaller lures fished with teasers. The secret to fishing this time of year is to keep moving, this way you kill two birds with one stone, staying warm and finding fish. With eight shopping days till Christmas finding just the right gift for you favorite angler is no problem here at the Dock. We have Rods – Reels – Lures and all other accessories at deep discount prices. Remember you also get a additional 20% value on all store gift cards purchased… John Yac
Very fishable conditions today, tomorrow not so much! The surf looks good, small swimmers with teasers out front, small rubber swim shads and thin metals also with teasers are picking small bass. No real heavy bite though, with first and last light being prime times. Black fishing is still good in just about all the spots you would expect fish… John Yac
Last couple of days before the deep freeze forecasted for Thursday evening!! The occasional short bass in the surf right now is all that’s happening, but black fish seem to be holding their own in all their usual haunts. Twelve shopping days left till Christmas!, wow that came fast! We have everything your special angler wants for Christmas and if you don’t know exactly what that is, a Store Gift Card (with 20% additional value added on purchase) will always please… John Yac
Another chilly day! So dress warm, grab a rod and hit the beach! It’s going to be a long winter as usual, so while there are still a few fish out there to put a bend in your rod why waist a day sitting on the couch? We still have a few nice LIVE eels for those hardcore guys… John Yac

A few short bass and the occasional keeper is all we have to talk about. This time of the year it seems that the phone is not ringing off the hook so fewer fisherman are fishing. Add to that the mind set that it’s all over and you get your few shorts and a occasional keeper report every time! There are still some nice fish around but you might have to dress a little warmer, change your technic a bit and fish a little harder! … John Yac
The beat goes on! Keeper bass are still chasing baits in the surf. Add herring to the mix of baits available to these feeding fish. Artificial baits on the larger side will work better than your standard choices. Large poppers, metal lip swimmers and darters top the list, followed by cut bunker and clams… John Yac
