In my experience, the best inshore FFing along the NJ coast falls between roughly late Sept (autumnal equinox) and mid Dec. Nov is usually peak. In the last decade or so, the striper season seems to be extending later with catches usually lasting into January but this is a difficult, sporadic, and unpredictable fishery and is mostly a pursued by bait/spin guys. Bluefish are usually gone by early/mid December. There is often a predictable run of large bass in the mid Dec time frame as the herring runs trails down the coast but this run is mostly a boat fishing game and surf/jetty guys like me can't play it since the fish stay out in deeper water. A lot of FFing success at the NJ shore is baitfish driven. For the most part, this includes mullet in the early fall and peanut bunker, sandeels, and rainbait (anchovies) in mid-fall. Usually, by the beginning of Dec this bait migration has passed or shifted out to deeper water. The bigger bunker and herring that migrate later tend to stay further out too. While I have had some great days in early Dec, I rarely visit the shore after the first week or so of the month. Locals who can get there quickly can continue to score later but it's usually not as predictable as previous weeks. And of course, the weather gets tougher. I've been on a few windy jetties in Dec and it's just not much fun unless the fishing is really good.

Good luck Fred. Let us know how you made out. Sandy Hook is a real hotspot and, along with IBSP, are probably the two best known surf fishing destinations along the NJ shore. I haven't been up to SH in a few years. Barnegat is closer for me. SH is also closer to NYC and, although the view of Staten Island is nice at night, the traffic in that part of NJ is awful. Also, SH lacks back water bay areas and jetty access and this is another clincher for me. While the policy may have changed, in the past, one had to walk up to the point if they didn't have a beach buggy permit (about a mile). The fishing up at the point can be fantastic but it's a hike (maybe this has changed). There's an article in the current eastern FFing Magazine about SH.

I fished sandy hook from a boat once. We nailed a few stripers, then the boat blew an engine. We were drifting south at a good clip, so we decided to spend most of the trip back drifting for flounder. Between the flatfish bite and the binocs on the nude beach, we had a good trip.

Go get em fred.

What does IBSP stand for?


Couple other questions...

I have ordered these 3 from the library.

1. The moon pulled up an acre of bass: a flyrodder's odyssey at Montauk Point by Peter Kaminsky

2. Fly fishing in Saltwater by Lefty

3. In search of a rising tide -a film (dvd) by Jamie Howard



Anyone read/seen them?

Any good?

a-kid,
IBSP is Island Beach State Park - a popular public access area along the NJ shore just above Barnegat Inlet.

The Moon Pulled Up an Acre of Bass is a decent read. It's mainly a story of a FFer's summer in Montauk NY and his fishing (and cooking) adventures with noted local guides like Paul Dixon et al. The author (Kaminsky) is the same guy who wrote the FFing for Dummies book.

The rising tide DVD is okay (could be a lot better). It's mainly inerviews with some of the old time Bahamian flats guides. It's worth a watch.
