Re: Daily Vis report thread

Got in today, same spot in squan as yesterday, missed the entire slack since i was running late, dove the outgoing for as long as we could, rain did not seem to mess with viz much still top to bottom in 15... saw a bunch of schoolies and a few legal bass out of reach, and of course the tog are still slobs. Still a little chilly and chose to dive in a 7m today, but Im glad viz is as good as its been.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Barnegat inlet today, 11:30AM 2 :30 Pm (high tide) viz about 5 ft. I Saw a huge Tog, so big I thought it may be a stripper, but it had a brownish back, so probably a tautog. It was in the shallow immediately next to the jetty right below me, like 6-8 ft max.
Didn't shoot, just in case you wonder.
I saw nothing in the deep 20-28ft. Either cause viz was too bad or because there was really nothing.
I didn't see the reelers on the jetty were too successful either.
Oh, and still no mussels on the rocks, as compared to last year at the same time.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Hit BI and Squan this weekend. Vis varied wildly from 15+ to less than a foot. Rain has it pretty bad now imagine but it's been swinging one or or the other constantly.

Hit a personal best striper 41" close to 30# from about 6-8 feet. First big fish I've shot with my home build 42" midhandle, stoned the fish. I might need a slip tip if I'm going to try to shoot anything bigger, didn't quite pass through the fish but I'm not sure if that was because I had my tip nearly rounded off or hitting the spine.

Fluke and bass are everywhere get out if you can.

Hope everyone has a great, fishy and safe season over there. Cheers Jeff

Re: Daily Vis report thread

@Jerseymud : my cell phone doesn't work for now...

Fantastic viz last Sunday at Barnegat Inlet. Saw tons of big Togs and Horseshoe crabs or a whitish beige variety of these 'crabs', some mating. I never seen horseshoe crabs there before. Rocks are finally covered in mussels, aka Togs food, but smaller, in my opinion, than last year mussels, perhaps an effect of a longer cold season ?
I didn't even shoot at the Togs, some where females with a full belly of eggs.

Anyways, I didn't go to see mussels, but you know what. But I didn't see much of it until just after slack. I entered water during high tide flow at 11AM and stayed all the way to slack at 2PM. And then I saw it. A huge Striped Bass, quite deep around 28ft as far as my ears could say, the biggest Bass I ever saw. It was alone, not in a school and moved very slowly counter tide (going to the bay) . I had several seconds to shoot when it was no more than 10 ft from me, I aimed but sort of panicked and disengaged the safe only half way, then shoot with the safe on. Anyways I felt like the gun was half jammed. When I finally shoot, it was just a ghost and that would have been a lucky shot. So I missed and that was it. Karma I guess. The battery in my camera was long dead to record that, but with the good viz i'll still make a movie of the other things with nice colors even at depth.

I guess we can expect 2 or 3 weeks more of good viz at BI and that'll be it.

A speargun safety is kinda pointless. It isnt anymore safe with it on. It can still go off. Most guys myself includeing remove them. Lots of shot opps lost in low vis water where you only have seconds to shoot. And im glad you didnt shoot at the tog. TOG SEASON IS CLOSED.
