Delaware Bay Report

Report from Tuesday, December 12.

| Port Elizabeth | Cape May | Last Week's Report |
THIS IS THE YEAR’S FINAL DELAWARE BAY REPORT!

THE REPORT KICKS BACK OFF IN APRIL
Cape May
Striped bass seemed to keep schooling the ocean from Atlantic City to Cape May, said Nick from Hands Too Bait & Tackle. They were mostly trolled on Mojos and bunker spoons. Nobody mentioned stripers from the Cape May Rips, but the striper migration surely reached south of Cape May, so stripers were probably at the rips. Boaters at the rips fish eels or trolled Mojos for stripers, and the rips are at the confluence of the ocean and Delaware Bay. Nothing was heard about stripers from Delaware Bay. From the surf, 4-pound bluefish caught began to be reported. Lures or fresh bunker were fished for them. A few anglers blackfished along surf jetties, still catching. Eventually, water will become too cold for blackfish there. Blackfishing sounded good at ocean wrecks.
