Fishing Report

Nov. 4, 2017

Avalon Hodge Podge Bait & Tackle

With the water temps dropping into the 50's we should be seeing the stripers on the beach front very soon! There have been sporadic reports of smaller bass both in the surf and in the back bay.

The Tog fishing has been very strong. You will catch these fish at the TI Bridge, 8th street jetty as well as the off shore reef systems. Green crabs or clam are your best baits here. The better numbers are at the reefs.

Snapper blues continue to be plentiful throughout being caught on mullet or small metals. The larges I've heard of was around 4 pounds.

Sea bass are also at the structure areas that you will find Tog. Squid or clam is the way to go here.

Scott Ferrara from Sparta, NJ had a 20" tog besting his friend Toby who found the skunk on Friday!

Finally, there was one report of (2) bonita being caught off the 8th street jetty. This is VERY UNUSUAL however the report came from the angler that assisted with landing these fish!
