Striped Bass opened on April 15th and there has been a great Bass bite to the west of us in Raritan Bay. Although the past few days have slowed down, I am still getting some reports of fish being caught both day and night.

Today, April 6, 2016 marks the 4th anniversary of the death of a fishing legend and my favorite fishing TV personality Jose Wejebe. I grew up watching Jose from the days of ESPN. I remember exactly where I was when my wife told me the sad news. Bro, you were my inspiration to do what I do today. Even though we never met in person and just spoke through Facebook I could tell just how great of a person you were.

Congratulations to Surfer Joe and Crew of Scott & Jay and winning the 6th annual Memorial Day Bass Shootout. Capt. Joey Leggio gave Surfer Joe a Tony Maja #4 Multi Color spoon to try out for the tourney and with in 15 minutes of him calling him in on the bite, Surfer hooked up with the first place fish. I think it is safe to say that Surfer Joe just found his new favorite spoon to use....Scott did an amazing job on the rod as this fish was hooked in the membrane of his eye. At the scales this fish weighed in at 43.50 pounds. Jack and crew took second with a 34 pound Striped Bass..

NY New Striped Bass Limits
Effective March 17, 2015
New York State is committed to maintaining a healthy stock of striped bass for both recreational and commercial fishing. To comply with the Atlantic States Marine Fishery Commission’s (ASMFC) mandated 25-percent harvest reduction, effective March 17, 2015, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has established limits that will allow the striped bass stock to recover more quickly. These limits are:
- Marine and Coastal district (south of the George Washington Bridge): 1 fish, 28 inches or larger, during the Apr. 15 – Dec. 15 season
- Hudson River (all tributaries north of George Washington Bridge and all inland waters): 1 fish, 18-28 inches OR 1 fish larger than 40 inches during the Apr. 1 – Nov. 30 season
- Delaware River: 1 fish, 28 inches or larger (no closed season)
Commercial: The commercial quota was reduced by 25%. A slot limit of 28-38 inches during the Jun. 1 – Dec. 15 season are the new limits.
New York also recommends the use of “circle-hooks” while fishing for stripers since this reduces the mortality of released fish.
NOTE: Anadromous river herring regulations remain the same for the Hudson River. The possession ban remains only for the Marine and Coastal District and all other waters in New York State.
Please visit the NYS DEC website for http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/7894.html details on the new limits and regulations .

The Saltwater Fishing Expo is back...so that means fishing season is right around the corner! This is the area's largest fishing show dedicated to saltwater fishing. It's easily accessible from NY, NJ, CT and PA and well worth the trip. It's well represented my many of the major tackle manufactures and a great place to meet and talk with the pros.
Capt. Joey will be there on Friday, so if you are there, please stop and say hello. I am sure we will be spending some time over at Tony Maja's stand to talk about getting ready for the spring bass trolling season!
