By The Dock Outfitters | May 19, 2023

Some decent blue fish action today off the end of our dock. Blues in the 3-5 lb. class were taking bunker chunks fished on our “dock special” blue fish rigs through out the day. The high light of the day so far is a nice fat 22″ fluke taken on a bunker chunk, and yes…

Bluefish and striped bass are being taken along our beaches at the present time. Clams and cut bunker are the baits of choice. On the artificial front, swimmers and poppers are both drawing attention and lets not forget the old reliable buck tail when all else fails. The back bay is still producing some nice…

The only thing that has changed in this fall run of a lifetime is the fish are getting a bit smaller. The numbers remain good but more shorts are mixed in the bite. It seems just about anything you throw gets attention from these feeding fish. All in all it remains a mind blowing run…

Bass fishing both on and off shore remains in high gear! Schools of peanut bunker are the main target for these hungry migrating fall bass. Just find a school of peanut bunker and more than likely the bass will be pinning them to the beach bringing the action, literally at your feet. The bass are…

Wow! It seems like the first round of the fall run came to a screeching halt! Those massive schools of bunker are gone for the moment and so are the bass and whales that were gorging themselves on them. Hopefully there will be more where that came from, so now it’s good time to go…

Every surf fisherman in our area has to know by now that the fall run started off with a bang! The long Nor’easter surely got the bunker schools on the move with the big girls in hot in pursuit. When the schools of bunker are within casting range fishing whole or cut bunker will get…

Surf conditions after the big nor’easter are almost back to normal. Still a bit dirty, with some extra white water around. Our local beaches didn’t take the beating everyone expected, if anything some extra nice cuts were added. One more day should do the trick and it should be business as usual. Lets keep our…
