Topic: Spring Fishing In Cape May

It is getting warmer and Spring is here.   Most boaters are working hard to get there rigs ready for the water as everyone is coming out of the woodwork.    For the few boats that are in the water, striped bass are being caught up in Delaware Bay using clam.   They are catching up in the wide cove section where the water is shallower and warmer.  The fishing should get better and better as the waters warm and the fish come into the bay area and head up the Delaware River to spawn.

Early April when the bulk of the boats start getting launched the striper fishing should start perking up closer to Cape May and along the beach fronts and the back bay areas.

If you are into freshwater fishing Cape May County has a number of lakes and small ponds where largemouth, pickerel, crappie and sunfish will readly take lures, flies or bait.   Until my boat gets in the water I have been having a great time with the fly.   The freshwater action has been good with some nice size fish being caught.
