Fish Tale Charters Striped Bass Fishing.

Since the last report the water temperatures have dropped a little bit. The water temps in the Bay when I posted the last report were still around 75*. As of this past weekend the readings I saw on my machine were at 70.5 for the Bay. This is a good thing. The water temperature is heading in the right direction. The days have been cooler with the night time being even cooler still. The night time temperatures have on some nights been in the upper 50’s and lower 60’s. As long as the air temperatures keep dropping so will the water temperatures. As soon as the water breaks the 70 mark in the Bay waters we will start the Ocean City NJ Striped Bass Fishing Offering Bay & Ocean Charters. I have in the past caught Striped Bass when the water temp has been in the upper 60’s. Optimal water temp is between 65* and 55*. When we get into the later part of the fall Striped Bass season I have personally caught Bass with water temps in the Bay as low as 50*. Once you get lower then that it gets sketchy. Bay Bass fishing is pretty much done at that point. I have caught Bass in the ocean in the upper 40’s yet even the ocean gets sketchy by then. Long story short we are getting closer to fishing for Striped Bass.

Here at Fish Tale Charters Ocean City NJ Striped Bass Fishing Offering Bay & Ocean Charters. In the fall we offer 2 types of STRIPED BASS fishing charters. The 1st is the FALL BAY STRIPED BASS FISHING CHARTER. As soon as the water temperature drops enough in October, (we are hoping mid to late October. This is to be determined) we will be able to get this trip started. The trip will be offered thru the end of November maybe the first week of December. On the Fall Bay Striped Bass trip we fish for the resident Striped Bass. We can do this by casting artificial baits (ARTIFICIAL BAIT INCLUDED IN THE COST OF TRIP) or we can buy live bait (LIVE BAIT NOT INCLUDED, LIVE BAIT EXTRA ON THE TRIP COST) This charter fishing trip is totally dependent on the high tide. Because of this, there are some dates that will not work. Contact Capt. Craig for help on what dates are good and what dates are not going to work due to the tide. More details in TRIPS & RATES page.

Ocean City NJ Striped Bass Fishing Offering Bay & Ocean Charters. The 2nd STRIPED BASS fishing charter we offer is the FALL OCEAN STRIPED BASS FISHING CHARTER. On this charter we troll with various artificial baits (INCLUDED IN THE COST OF TRIP). By trolling we can cover much more ground. If we see the opportunity to jig metal baits or bucktails (INCLUDED IN TRIP) we will do so. On the Ocean Striped Bass trip we are depending on the migrating Striped Bass coming down from the New England states where they have spent the summer. In choosing a date on this trip to book. Over the past 8 years the dates to choose are from the week of THANKSGIVING on. In early November the water temperatures have not dropped enough in the ocean to bring the bait down the beach. Therefore the BASS have not been showing up in our area until late November. When they have finally shown up the fishing can be very good. Give Capt. Craig a call for information on these two trips or to book your STRIPED BASS CHARTER.
