Winter flounder fishing was slow, Bob from Fisherman’s Den wrote in an email. Customers fish for them in Shark River, running past the shop. Anglers will see if warmer weather will pick up the catches. Striped bass were rumored caught in the Toms and Manasquan Rivers. Some were supposedly hooked from Barnegat Bay, too. A few bluefish were reportedly landed from Barnegat Bay and Raritan River, though this was early for blues. Bunker supposedly schooled the Raritan, and a big kill of bunker was even reported from the river. Get your tackle ready, because things are looking up, Bob suggests. For freshwater, trout gear is being stocked for the opening of trout season April 6. ***Update, Friday, 3/22:*** Some winter flounder are beginning to be hooked from Shark River, Bob wrote in an email. That fishery should open up as the season’s weather becomes a little warmer and sunnier. Striped bass, mostly throwbacks, are biting in back waters from Raritan Bay to Mullica River. A few keepers are being wormed in the back of the Raritan around the Amboys. Bloodworms, sandworms and fresh clams are stocked. Lots of new rods and reels are stocked for all kinds of fishing from surf angling to trout fishing. Stop by and browse.
