20 More Days – The Countdown to NJ Striped Bass

The countdown to opening day continues this February 9, as we’re just 20 days away from the official winter flounder and back bay striped bass opener in the Garden State. We talked to several tackle shop reps in the region this week for reports at and they all the same thing – folks are chomping at the bit in anticipation of that March 1 reopener. Kicking off this week’s video fishing forecast we jump into that topic and spend few minutes talking about the January-February striper closure, before turning our attention to white perch, tautog and porgy action going on this week. We’ve also got our freshwater report with the Pocono Outdoors Guy, plus a New Jersey crew pops up in our Costa Rica update from Quepos. Plus, get a full rundown on weekend events with shows in Manahawkin, Port Monmouth, the Susquehanna River and Palmyra where you'll find Hutch set up this Super Bowl Sunday for The Fisherman Magazine.
