Atlantic City
A mess of schoolie striped bass bit in the surf beside Absecon Inlet in town from 9 to 10 p.m. yesterday, said Noel from One Stop Bait & Tackle. Only a few anglers were out there, but some landed 20 to 25. Plugs, eels, clams and bloodworms caught. The plugs were jointed Bombers – “old school,” Noel said – and Daiwa SP Minnows. Joe Baggs Swarters will work well, too. That’s a terrific plug. Boaters began to stop in with a few big stripers from the ocean caught off Atlantic City this week, covered in the last report here. Those bass were trolled on M3Tackle bunker spoons and MagicTail Mojos. The spoons caught including in chartreuse-and-white, pink, a special John Deere green-and-yellow made for the store that was killer, and white shad. Blackfishing was phenomenal along the jetty-lined inlet. Many anglers were catching a limit of one. If the limit had been five like it will be beginning Friday, limits would have been made. Catch a deal on green crabs: three dozen for $10. Plenty of green crabs and Asian crabs are stocked for blackfish bait. Baits stocked, the complete supply, also include eels, fresh clams in the shell and shucked, and bloodworms. Noel hopes to stock fresh bunker Friday. They’ve been scarce. A vending machine dispenses bait, a little of everything, round the clock, handy for afterhours.
