Tag: September Striped bass fishing in Cape MAy

Back Bay Keeper flounder mid-september


The flounder were hitting my paddle tail rubber bait, as aggressively as the striped bass and  bluefish. Dayna caught the biggest  flounder today it weighed  4.8 pound.  She caught it on an unscented rubber bait.   I am sure you could limit out on flounder in the back bay, if you targeted them, using peanut bunker as bait. We had a good mid – day striped bass bite, but the bluefish   continue to dominate. The water temperature was 70 degrees on the top of the tide.

This is the best time of year to vacation in Cape May County, NJ.  No crowds, plenty of fish, reduced prices and fantastic weather.
