Been away from here for a while. Things have settled down and I'm starting to explore my new zip code. Stole a few hours on the surf this morning before work. Dinks all over but not a decent fish to be seen. All in all it's been a terribly slow fall in my new NJ backyard. Hopefully these guys will be 50lbs by the time I retire.




Not supposed to fit in the basket...


Didn''t know they came this small


Go tell your dad what I did. I''ll be back here tomorrow morning...

Ive been heading up to point and manasquan beach almost every day and its been dead except for a few kids spearing blackfish. There ahve been very few birds or boats on the water and barely anyone seriously fishing the surf. I havent had my boat out for bass this fall yet. For the last four or five years the run has been really late. Ive found the spring to be better for the big ones, but they do show.

I know, surf guys are getting cranky too. I had a guy creep right up next to me after the last fish. He had the nerve to tell me "don't go telling everyone where you caught those" lmao, you want me to keep a 16" and two 10" fish a secret??? I laughed so hard that was all I could get out!?

Nice fish on the fly.

He's definitely the minority. Most of the guys I run into are great. The best part was he was getting frustrated! You watch me bring in three small fish and keep throwing a 7" bomber to 10" fish??? Atleast tie on a teaser or ask me for a fly...

It's not hard, and Bass are a blast on a flyrod. Join the northshore flyrodders, they'll be glad to teach you.

Glad you caught SOMETHING, at least. I haven't had a bite on fly or plug or teaser in the last month!

Anyone who'd like to learn to flyfish in saltwater is also welcome to join Bayshore Saltwater Flyrodders in Middletown, NJ (www.bayshoresaltwaterflyrodders.com).
