Spring Weakfish Cape May County,NJ

2786000527860023

Weakfish have  always been one of the pleasures of spring in Cape May County NJ. True spring arrives here with the news of the first  weakfish and Black Drum being caught. Today with the weakfish population at a low  point it is imperative  you have intimate knowledge of the areas you fish. You also need the ability to read the water or fish with someone that does. No special lure or chum will catch fish without that information or ability.
 
 

Two late season Avalon NJ Speckled Trout

The day I caught the specs in the picture large schools of bunker pushed into the sound I was fishing. Followed by the largest school of giant Stripers I have ever seen in shore. As I was hooked up to speckled trout the giant Stripers were stalking and darting  in an attempt to eat them. To my chagrin, I large heavy weight Striper grabbed my lure and spooled me. Ending my fishing for the day. They also spooked the specs so bad it took me a week of scouting to find them.

I have no clue to the correlation between the Red tail hawks’ successful rabbit hunt and a successful Speckled trout fishing trip. I returned many times to find this guy waiting for me with his prize.
