More of the same! Plenty of short bass in close with more than enough to go around of quality size bass for the boat guys. If your feet are in the sand you should be fishing small swimmers, small metals and as always with teasers out front. If there is 20 to 50 ft of water under you, trolling large bunker spoons is way to go. Adding to that you can troll a mojo rig down the middle just to cover all the bases… John Yac

Short bass for the surf guys while the boat boys are still enjoying some good bass on the troll. Our own shop guy Dean was out yesterday aboard the SEASIDE WAVERUNNERS boat with Tom Cortese and trolled up two nice bass in the 15 to 20 pound range. Walt D also was at it again yesterday, he limited out once more trolling Tony Maja bunker spoons!… John Yac
A lot of small fish on small baits! Early morning action the past couple of mornings on small bass, these fish were in the low to mid twenty inch class. Small ava style lures fished slow on the retrieve was the ticket to success. The boat guys are still catching quality fish on the troll, but as always, it’s a matter of being at the right place at the right time… John Yac

While the surf guys struggle to catch keeper bass in our area, the boat boys are still having fun. We weighed in a beauty Sunday, 49″- 44.25 lbs. on guess what?, bunker spoons, what else. Well at least we know these trophy bass are still in our area. And as diehard surf guys all we can do is keep on trucking, and it’s not over, till it’s over! Black fishing remains hot on local wrecks. We have live green crabs along with live eels, fresh bunker and salted clams… John Yac
Small swimming plugs in the wash seems to be the ticket right now for hooking up with some hard fighting schoolie bass. There remains a slow pick of short to keeper size bass along our shore line right now. Smaller swimmers, poppers and metals will all hook up at different times, so a selection of these should be in your bag while walking the water’s edge in search of fish. The boat guys trolled up some quality fish yesterday again, but these fish were off shore a bit. Black fishing at most of the local wrecks is good at present. We have FRESH BUNKER and LIVE GREEN CRABS along with SALTED CLAMS… John Yac

It’s mild out, the rain will pass, and the winds will be blowing north west. Add to all that a gentleman’s morning high tide, what more can a surf guy ask for, maybe a few more fish would be nice! There are fish around you just have to work a little harder to hook up. Both lures and bait alike are accounting for the elusive bass at present, as always it’s a matter of being at the right place at the right time… John Yac
>>> BLACK FRIDAY <<< is coming to the Dock Outfitters once again! We will be offering – RODS – REELS – LURES – WADERS at a discounted prices!!!
First light, daytime, and last light are producing small to keeper size bass. Cut bunker and clams are the baits of choice. Swimmers, rubber shads, and poppers cover your artificial choices. Remember this time of the year things can change on a dime, schools of bait move in close with fish hot on their trail and just like that you are into some hot action. So stay ready!… John Yac
Well the surf guys got a taste of boat action yesterday! Thanks to the help of some local feeding whales, adult bunker were being pushed within casting range of the surf bound anglers. This action took place from Brick Beach to the north, to Ortley Beach to the south. Snag and drop in these bunker schools was the ticket for hooking up with these “big girls”. Alan Kunze fishing up in Brick weighed the big fish of the day, a 45″ – 34.9 lb. beauty, with Marty Andersen fishing on Ortley beach with a 38″ – 20.5 lb fish. If the south winds forecasted for today don’t shout down the fishing, we may see some more hot surf action… John Yac
