Water temperature’s rising and so is the bluefish action

The weather is awesome. Well, it hasn’t rained in a few days so there is that. The pollen has been miserable. Check on your friends with allergies, we are not OK.

Outdoors: Spring fishing off to exciting start

The fishing is really going off this spring, much better than the last few years. Mostly because everything is starting early. We are seeing some fish that are way too early and one fish in particular that has yet to show up. Everyone wants to know where the big bluefish are, and many of us […]

Fishing keeps getting better; food showing up for striped bass

Fishing this spring has been getting better and better. Location and tide has been important in some cases, but for the most part if you get out and fish you will more than likely catch. There is always the possibility of the skunk, and that has also happened. It is called fishing not catching, right? […]

Short striped bass action is hot; pick a beach and do some fishing

Second spring has arrived followed by second winter, which only lasts a couple days but you have to love it. Nothing like old man winter trying to come back into the room yelling “and another thing!” The fish don’t care but the temperature drops do slow the bite down a bit as well as the […]

Osprey sightings a sure sign that spring is around the corner

You don’t have to listen too hard to hear the sounds of spring. The staccato of peepers in the woods and fields around my house is deafening at night, they are even amped up during the day. There is so much water everywhere I have peepers in places I didn’t think they would exist. Great […]

It’s still winter but fishing is starting to pick up

The winter doldrums are still in full effect, but the fishing is finally picking back up for this time of year. Granted it isn’t the beast mode of the bluefish and and almost nonexistent spring striped bass run, but it is still fun catching. At least the spring run of bass gives us better hope […]
