Weakfish show up at traditional early season spots

Yes,confirmed Weakfish catches from: Corson’s inlet, Ludlum bay, Forked river and Townsend’s inlet. It is encouraging to see weakfish caught from their early season haunts. A reliable bite in my core area historically never starts before early May.The earliest I have caught them is April 20. I am going to check out a couple of spots over the next few days.Stay tuned.

    This is great! Thanks for the news, Ken. Just saw my orthopedic doc for an injection. I have been pickerel fishing near my house with very light rod. Hope to get back to more strenuous stuff. In the “old” days when “Bunker” Charlie Glenn had his tackle shop, the locals would fish the Higbee’s jetties with bucktails, very slowly on the bottom with very light tackle. I wonder if anyone is doing this now. Being a summer local I was never successful myself but I recall it was a game to see who would get the first weakie. I remember Ben Callaway writing writing in the Daily News about the earliest taken on April 4.

    Brian, good to hear you have been out and about fishing. I remember Charlie Glenn, unlike many B&T shop owners, he was an avid fisherman. I ‘ll never forget , the Mirror lures he sold at his shop, he had them displayed like diamonds . I have a lot of good memoirs catching weakfish from Higbee’s jetty . They did really good there last year. I was dialed in closer to home, it is a good spot. Keep the therapy going, you don’t want to miss the tide runner bite.
