Delaware Bay Report

Report from Tuesday, October 13.

Cape May
The striped bass migration will probably begin to arrive along the northern state in the next weekend or two, Capt. George from the Heavy Hitter said. Striper fishing usually starts becoming best off Cape May at the beginning of November. The first trips for stripers will probably bunker-chunk on Delaware Bay on the boat. Trolling for the bass usually begins to catch on the ocean in mid-November from Stone Harbor to Ocean City aboard. Larger, mature stripers make up the migration. They’re heading south for winter, stopping at places like Delaware Bay along the way in fall. Younger, smaller stripers, yet to migrate, might already bite in the bay and similar waters this season. Plenty sometimes hit right in the slips at the marina. Clams catch them there at night, and on some nights, two will bite, and on others, lots will. Cooler water this season can make them active. If anglers are interested in striper fishing, the charters are beginning to book aboard. Currently, small bluefish probably schooled off Cape May Point. They usually do through October. Some boats sailed for tuna on the ocean this weekend on overnight trips from Cape May, and George would hear how they fared this week. Charters will tuna fish on the Heavy Hitter this season, if the fish show up within range. Sea bass charters will begin once sea bass season is opened starting October 22. Blackfish charters will fish once the bag limit is raised to six of the tautog, from the current limit of one. Telephone if interested in any of this fishing.
