Now with the fall run in our rear view mirror it’s a great time to give our hard used tackle a good looking over! Cracked guides, loose tips and wraps, and reels that sound like coffee grinders should all be addressed before the new season. The shop is open all winter Thursday thru Sunday from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM. We would be more than happy to take care of any issues you may have… John Yac

Adverse weather conditions have kept surf and boat fisherman at home. The high winds and rough seas of the past several days have been the cause of this inactivity. So until these conditions change we don’t have much to report on… John Yac
Milder weather for today in the forecast should bring more anglers to the water. The fish are also cooperating both for the boat and surf fisherman alike. Trolling the big bunker spoons are at the top of the list for these jumbo fall run bass. Case in point, check out Greatkills Bait and Tackle on Staten Island. The shop weighed in a 67.55 lb. bass yesterday on a bunker spoon! Closer to home, trollers are hooking up on bass to 40 lbs. also on spoons. The surf scene is seeing more keeper bass each day taken on sand eel looking presentations. These sand eels are quite large in profile so large Avas and Deadly Dicks will work nicely as far as metals go. SP minnows and Yo-Zuri LC minnows also matchup nicely with the sand eels… John Yac
It’s been a unpredictable fall run so far to say the least. Yesterday was a case in point. The surf guys were scratching to find fish and when they did find them they were lucky to get a keeper. The boat guys on the other hand were having a great day. I received a call from my friend Walt Dudley late morning yesterday, he told me that him and his friend trolling large bunker spoons were having a banner day out of Barnegat Inlet. The count was 12 fish with the largest one going 48 lbs. All fish were released except 2 for the table. The big girl slipped back into the water unharmed and if she makes it to next season 50 lbs. should be in her future. Now only is us surf guys could get a shot at some of those fish. So stay diligent you never know!… John Yac
