Just got in from today's trip. Went on the little skiff today with Capt. Ed. LOADS of BLUES!!!! Bend the rods ALL you want! Fill boxes of them if it pleases you! We landed 7 could have been 70 if we wanted.



Also had 5 keeper size line siders to 20+ lbs today. Was so tough to get the bait past the blues but the bass are there!



Greg Ver Der Ber From the BWB Bto'z was high hook on the bass today with 2 keepers to 17 lbs. Capt Ed had the 20 lber today. I had a respectable teen size bass and all the blues any of could have ever wanted to bend the rods on. Thanks for joining me today Greg, thanks for a great trip Capt. Ed!




Gred & his limit catch


Good trip today

Sounds like you had a good time...it's probabaly cause the water is getting so warm that most of the bass have moved east already or are on the move east..the next few sunny days are gonna kill the bass fishing in Jamaica Bay since the back of the bay is already at 65 degrees as of today and only gonna get warmer Frown !

I completely disagree. We will have good Bass until mid June. Earrrrrly morning and night time will be key. If you are the kind of guy that fishes 8am as early, you will be too late.

I expect bigger fish to be caught in the next two weeks as well.

The back of the bay is only 60ish in temperature as well.

Well i guess only time will tell, i would love to prove myself wrong too Smile ! On another note I would'nt be surprised if we get an algae bloom back there also with all the rain run off we've had this spring now2 followed by strong sunshine.

My experience says that they do move out around now, meaning the large numbers that we now have, but bass can be caught in JBAY through June. My last good night of bass fishing last year was June 7th. Elias is absolutely right, when the huge numbers of bass start to diminish, VERY early and VERY Late shifts catch fish.

The big fish have not even arrived yet. I do most of my fishing by breezy point and every year we get the bigguns by the end of may and early june, so they are not moving east, because they are not even here yet ! Plenty of good days of striper fishing ahead.

Its really more simple than that

Many many different schools are at work here. Some of the migrating fish don't even come near J-Bay. Some do. Some come earlier, some come later. Some leave earlier, some leave later. There are big fish being caught way out east already. Who says that those fish didn't stop in J-Bay as well. And for the record, HUGE bass come into J-Bay as early as April 15th, I know this for a fact. Don't make me tell my monster story again. Frown

DuceRok: I love a good story, love to hear it sometime...

Striperstalker - Yea, I agree it is a totally different story over there.

I spent a beautiful August morning at the end of the Breezy Jetty last year. Some of the fish caught that morning included, false albies, stripers, blues and bonito. They also see sturgeon jumping out over there, I haven't yet. The point is that Breezy doesn't count, it is a special place for those who know how to take advantage of it. I mostly fish the backbays for bass.
