Sea Isle City
Capt. Joe Hughes from Jersey Cape Guide Service and Sea Isle Bait & Tackle will turn all attention to fishing from Sea Isle City now, he said. The trips are fishing for striped bass that are smacking popper lures and flies on the back bay. The migration of stripers and blues in the ocean off Sea Isle begins in early November during some years, and as early as now during others, usually peaking sometime between the weeks before and after Thanksgiving. Trips for that angling should be booked without delay, and usually last into December. Currently, stripers were also beached from the surf. Joe this weekend wrapped up annual traveling trips to Montauk, New York, to fish the migration of false albacore, stripers and blues. Those trips are usually charters, but Joe fished Montauk on a busman’s holiday on Saturday with his wife. They targeted albies, landing 16, including ten on fly rods, and six on spinning rods. Blues were mixed in, and more blues could’ve been beaten if targeted. Stripers could’ve also been nailed if targeted. The next traveling charters will be annual trips to the Florida Keys in winter. Fishing mostly on weekends, the trips can be like a mini, fish-filled vacation. A large variety of fish can be fished for, from speckled seat trout and redfish to tarpon and sailfish.
