Busted Wide Open 11/16-17

The fishing the past two days has been nothing short of a dream. Yesterday we ran out and saw striped bass rolling on the surface, game on. They were thick and feeding heavy on bunker all throughout the water column. The water was 53 degrees and clean so you could see them take the poppers on top so easily and the bucktails next to the boat. The bite was epic and we caught our limit and then some of 20-35 pound fish.

We ran inside and dropped off the Stripers so we could be legal to run beyond the 3 mile line for sea bass. We had nonstop action on sea bass and tog all afternoon but most of the fish were small, but we did manage to get plenty of keepers and a few really nice sea bass.

Today we had a small weather window so I slipped out with a few friends on the trade in again. There was tons of bait again and scattered birds diving off of the Wildwood Ferris wheel, but no stripers. We kept hunting looking for something better and finally around 9:30 we got on the fish. It turned into a repeat of yesterday with great action on bucktails and a few on topwaters with fish ranging from 18-30 pounds.

Amazing fishing right now! I hope it holds up…
