Striped Bass fishing is heating up all along the Jersey Coast , but, where do you go to find them? Simple, the key word is in the first sentence. (Heating up) The stripers are preparing for their spring spawning runs and that often puts them in the bays and rivers in salt, fresh and brackish waters. Where do you look there? Again, heating up. Concentrate in the shallow dark bottom flats, around warm water discharges, or any other area that seems to be a few degrees warmer than the surrounding waters. If you are fortunate enough to find a good warm area, and it is holding bait like menhaden, shad or herring, you are in business.

The Raritan Bay is fishing well as we speak with some quality size fish being caught. Where in the bay you may ask? Read the above paragraph and you would be led to believe that areas like the flats off of Belford and Keyport, and around the Arthur Kill would be your best bet. Also areas like just outside Great Kills Harbor will be holding fish as well. Look around and watch your sounder for bait and your temp gauge for as little as a couple tenths of a degree of warmer water. Find that, and you will find the fish.

Happy Fishing !
