BUCKTAIL WILLIE was pulled today and delivered to Dr Barnacle Bill for a check up and winterizing I had planned to stay in until Thanksgiving weekend but weather next 4-5 days does not look very good so decided rather than pulled in cold windy weather pull today
Good bye 2015 which clearly won’t go down as a very good year

I will recap my year over the next few weeks by species and over the winter offer some tips for 2016

To all of you who followed this website over the year I hope I helped you and kept you aware daily as to what was going on in my area
Have a great Thanksgiving and a Very Merry Christmas and hopefully I will be back in the water early April and back at it for another year which will be my 60th year fishing with my boat in the Strathmere -Corsons Inlet area
If you have specific questions that I may be able to answer don’t hesitate to ask
I strongly suspect there will be a Striped bass bite well into DEC as there still is a huge school of bass above LBI Late migration will mean there will be a potential for a larger than normal school of bass wintering over in our waters and they should be hungry in April
In my younger years I caught a lot of bass in Dec and there were 2 years back in early 90’s that I caught bass in Jan Water temperature will be the key if it stays over 44 fish will be hungry
