I heard great stripe bass fishing from NY Bight to Moriches, but I haven't had time.
Finally I decided to go striped bass jigging out of Jones Inlet, Long Island tomorrow.
Many of them are 20 - 30 lbs and some are in 40 - 50 lb range.
The question is whether I head east or west because stripebass are caught all areas south of Long Island. I might go to east toward Fire Island as it seems there is more concentration of striped bass there. I am going to use light Black Hole Magic Eye 783S and 753S with small jigs.

when I read party boats' fishing report today, I got the impression that insane striped jigging continued today.
But it was decent jigging, not great jigging for us today.
We got 5 men limit, but we had to work.
We marked lots of fish, but they were reluctant to bit.



I used Black Hole Magic Eye 753S rod/Stella 5000SW. The choice of jig was 2 oz FCL LABO SL jig with which I had 4 -5 striped bass and 2 bluefish.

The Black Hole Magic Eye 753S rod was a blast. The light and soft rod gave so much fun.

John used 200g JM Power Spell/JM PE3.


He used 4 oz silber hammered diamond jig


Frank did very well with 4 oz gold hammered diamond jig


2 oz FCL LABO SL worked very well. I had only one hit while cranking fast. Most bites were when I crank this jig with moderate speed,



5 men limit.

Thats the only way to describe yesterdays jigging action. Had most fish in 55'... Machine at some points was lit up in the entire water table...Sand lance, bunker, and squid on the menu of these fish..

Good luck !

I got out there about 5PM. Second drop I had a 19lb. Maybe 10 drops later and a few swings and misses I had a 34 lb. I might have fished for a total of 30 minutes.

Gary of Tady lure flew to NJ from California to fish striped bass with Al Ristori NJ tomorrow, but the trip is canceled due to weather.
So I suggested to go on a party boat out of Moriches, Long Island as striped bass jigging was fantastic there.
A party boat out of Captree was considered, but we experienced slow fishing last time because of too many boat traffic.
I hope I take many pictures and videos this time.

Kil you're getting spoiled, LMAO! 5 men limit "decent". It's always more rewarding when you have to work for fish and succeed in catching them.Shades

It was a carbon copy of the trip one week ago.
Fishing report was great, but striped bass didn't cooperate though Capt James said he read lots of bass on the bottom.
Though bass didn't cooperated in the morning, blue were relentless.

We had only a few striped bass in the morning and Capt James decided to go bottom fishing as striped bass didn't cooperate. When you see Captree party boats join us, it doesn't look good.

Bottom fishing was so and so. Frankly I was surprised we had decent catch of small seabass because we had swell and unexpected Northeast wind.

By 2:00 pm, they pulled anchor. We thought we were going home.
But mate said we were going to bass ground again and of course we were delighted. Smile
It was a good move as striped bass were in biting mood.
I think we almost boat limit of striped bass for around 30 fishermen by the end of the trip. We arrived at the dock past 4:30 pm.
Thanks Capt James for your extra effort.

Gary of Tady Lure used Tady AA and Park used 8 oz JIGNPOP flat hammered diamond jig while I used 120g FCL LABO SL jig.
Most fishermen used silver hammered diamond jig. I was surprised very few if any used gold hammered diamond jig which is reportedly hot lure for striped bass.

I normally don't use heavy 8 oz jig for striped bass, but I suggest Park to use my JIGNPOP flat hammered diamond jig as his light lure floated away. He must be one of the high hooks on the boat with the jig. Normal JIGNPOP flat hammered diamond jigs are rear weighted, but the jig Park used was center balanced jig which I brought for experimentation. I am going to test this center balanced jigs more for striped bass or tuna.

It was a very enjoyable trip with good fishing, good crew and good fishermen.

Striped bass jigging is still good east of Fire Island and good jigging is spreading to NJ too.

I am going to fish for striper on the Mad Gaffer out of Belmar tomorrow as I read good striped bass are going on near the Inlet.
