Kensdock Report: NJ Red Drum


CJ Polhamus with a beautiful  Red Drum. CJ has been targeting Red Drum this fall from the beaches of Cape May County,NJ and obviously doing well. Many have been catching red drum this fall with bait, however CJ  has been catching them exclusively  with lures.


Fred with a Red drum that he caught this fall  in the back waters of Cape May County,NJ.  He caught the red drum with a mirro-lure.

    Wish I could get down! I have only caught them on lures BUT only in the Gulf of Mexico. CJ knows his stuff!

    I have caught them in SW Florida, but never found one here in NJ. In his book Salt Water Fishing, the writer Van Campen Heilner details catching over a thousand red drum (channel bass) over 5 lbs. at Corson’s Inlet way back in the early 1900’s…so they are not new here, but they sure have been missing for a while. – Coot

    Coot, New Jersey’s 2013 Red Fish population has returned to the point, that they are now worth the time and effort of sport fisherman to target them. There has been more keeper red drum caught this fall, so far, from the beaches of Cape May County than keepers stripers. My concern is that NJ has failed to update the commercial red drum regulations, and if they do not update them, the red drum will go missing again.
