Striped Bass Fishing Around Ocean City NJ Bay & Ocean Charters.

When I reported to you last time the water temperature was dropping a bit. It was down to about 70*. The water temperature is going in the wrong direction now as of yesterday. Went to the boat yesterday to put all our Striped Bass rods and gear on board. We are ready for Striped Bass Fishing Around Ocean City NJ Bay & Ocean Charters. It was a nice day and the tide was right so I decided to take the boat out and check things out for a while. In the marina the water temperature was 75.4*. When I got out into the main Bay on an incoming tide the water temp was 73.6*. WOW! That is some warm water for the middle of October. That is like July water temps. Lets go to the beach and ride some waves. I Headed back to a couple spots in the Back Bay with my artificial baits. Made a few casts caught one small Bass. After that every cast I made I caught Bluefish after Bluefish. Some of the Blues were small others were maybe 2 to 3 lbs. Although it was fun, it was not what I was looking for. The Blues became a pain in the butt after a while biting off the baits. With the weather we are to have today and tomorrow from hurricane Michael the air temps are to drop a lot for the weekend. We need this change. This change in air temp will hopefully drop the water temp and turn the Bass on. It will also chase the Blues out of the area. Cross your fingers.

We are ready for our Striped Bass Fishing Around Ocean City NJ 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 hope 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.

Fish Tale Charters Striped Bass Fishing Trips.

On our Striped Bass Fishing Around Ocean City NJ 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 in the ocean. 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.
