Terminal Tackle
John Richey says fishing is very, very good and the weather this week was good but a gale on Saturday (11/10) put the kibosh on that. Blackfishing has been very good and many more keepers than anyone on the South Shore can find. The blackfish have been cooperating very nicely and still fairly shallow at 20 to 25 foot of water on the green crabs. Some nice size fish to 8 pounds too. Action better now as current water temps are now in the 50's where they belong. Bass and bluefish action has improved with jigging the best way when the tide is made up and trolling when the tide slows. Heard of shad entering the river now and it should bring some larger bass in with them. They still weigh in a quality bass 20 to 25 pounds every day caught from the shad schools around the river area. Bass to 35 inches have been caught in the river on eels or bass worms; the Triangle is the spot for both bass and blues most days. Lots of squid around now too!! Make sure you ask for your Terminal Tackle catalogue, it's free! On the web at www.terminaltackleco.com

James Joseph II (
: Capt. James Schneider said they did sail every day this week and so far it has been very good even with the new moon tides. They may have to wait an hour or so for a slower tide or slack tide to get them, but it has been very good. Lighter crowds on Monday and Tuesday in wind but easy limits then. They had 33 people on Wednesday and 40 or so on Thursday (11/8) and they are doing 700 to 1300 blackfish per trip and most are limiting out with fish to 7 pounds. A very good week so far. They sailed Saturday (11/10) in NW winds at 30 for some of the best blackfishing this year so far. Fourteen anglers all had limits and then some with fish to 7 pounds in fast and furious action. The fish just kept coming all day and they only did one drop and never stopped catching. They are sailing 7 a.m. to 3 for giant blackfish. Any additional information can be found on the website at www.jamesjosephfishing.com.
