It was a winter with no snow and a handful of boats kept sailing. Usually in late winter the water is so cold nothing bites, but this year you could still catch a fish or two. Now that spring is here, we have to deal with the Chinese virus. Some boats delayed their starting dates. State parks remain open, but who knows for how long. Stripers are starting to bite in the usual places. get them while you can. Stay safe.

Nothing going on down here, but it looks like some codfish are biting out on Long Island. It snowed for about fifteen minuets yesterday, and if you tried real hard, you could almost make a snowball. I had a doctor's appointment the other day and it felt good to get outside.

I was a little under the weather over the holidays, but feel better now. I spoke to a local skipper recently who said blackfishing is not what it used to be, but we all know that. Congratulations to Randy for winning the Blackfish Triple Challenge tournament. Good luck and best fishes to everyone in the New Year.

Right now, I can't do any fishing and I miss the adventures I enjoyed sharing with you. All the reports are second hand from the fisherman I talk to. The blackfish bit well before the storm and are still biting. Seems like the cold weather turned them on. The bass continue to bite. It is hard to get out on a boat this time of year, but the fishing has been very good from the beach. That fishing should continue, as I caught until the new year last season. I miss exploring the beach and hope to get back there next season.

Striped Bass fishing has been lights out from beach and boat this week. We enjoyed a donated fillet, grilled with garlic, oil and lemon, while cooking for Turkey Day. Blackfishing is the same old s%#t, as told to me by a sad faced skipper. Enjoy the rest of the Holiday weekend, stay safe and warm.
