Don’t Want to Work? Bang on the Drum
More black drum reports coming in through our weekly fishing reports at TheFisherman.com, as sod bank casters in the Great Bay, Absecon Bay area in particular have found some early boomers picking up their baits. Striped bass action is picking up along the open beaches, in ad-dition to the river hot spots which have been producing since the March 1 opener in the Garden State. Tautog action continues this month for boats heading out of ports in New Jersey and Del-aware, though jetty jocks continue to score from shore. We’re past the April moon and hoping for a warming trend in the next few days, though the fast-moving nor’easter earlier in the week could’ve been the trigger for an onslaught of saltwater action. Could the inlet invasion by those yellow-eyed devils begin this week? Someone has to be the first on the scene!

With a good biomass of bait in the back bays from Tuckerton down to Cape May, everything's coming together for an awesome May in South Jersey. Even before the start of this years early season, some flounder are already being caught behind the barrier islands. As the water warms, these fish really should turn on, giving back bay anglers a shot at some of the biggest flatties of the year. That same bait should attract more and bigger stripers once they are done spawning in the rivers. And any day can be the day when the first of the bluefish and weakfish show up, also looking for that bountiful back bay feast.
