GUAYMAS: 47 fish taken here last week.
NEW JERSEY: A few fish still being caught, usually well off shore from Barnegat Ridge south.
STRIPED BASS: MASSACHUSETTS: Fishing was just returning to normal last week when nor'-easter hit and surf's been oily since. However, some bass being taken deep on eelskins in Cape Cod Bay after total slump. Canal dead as no bait shows. Martha's Vineyard had some real activity as several big fish including a 50-pounder were caught at midweek.
SOUTH CAROLINA: Stripers provided only fishing bright spot in this area last week with trollers having fair luck in Santee-Cooper area.
NEW JERSEY: Surf and jetty fishing was hot one day, cold the next last week with best action centering at Long Branch north to Sandy Hook and south to Bradley Beach. Night fishing best with rigged eel, plugs and tin squids best lures. A bent piece of stuff resembling yellow rubber hose was also effective.
BLUEFISH: FLORIDA: Fish schooling in shallows between Alligator Point and Dog Island. Use fly or spinning rod with streamers and jigs for best action. OG.
NORTH CAROLINA: Blues reappearing and best bet is Hatteras Inlet.
NEW JERSEY: The glorious days of blue fishing off the Jersey coast started to slip somewhat last week with chumming still good offshore about 7-12 miles east of Asbury Park, on the Shrewsbury Rocks and on Barnegat Ridge. Most of the fish are now small by earlier comparison (1� to 4 pounds). Bluefish schools are reported in the surf at widely scattered places. Rivers and bays crawling with snappers.
