NJ January Bluefish, Striped Bass and Herring Fishing

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

Video is from the afternoon of Saturday Jan 2, 2015, launched the kayak, met up with friends, picked a couple fish up over the course of the day. I ended up with a nice Bluefish and a couple Striped Bass, missing a few others. At dusk the herring got real frisky and at times were swimming onto shore chasing 1/4″ baitfish. At the very last hint of daylight I got a bite on a live Herring and landed my first fish from the Beach in 2016, a fat 31″ Striper.

Make sure to check out the Herring “Blitz” at around 12:00

RMAU says:

Most juvenile bluefish spawned during the summer in the mid-Atlantic and in the spring in the South Atlantic remain in coastal waters, but some summer-spawned fish do enter the lower Bay for a couple of months before they return to the coast in the fall and join the adults in their move southward.
