Fished the top of the tide solo from the shore on the NJ side south of the cbb yesterday afternoon with clams and bloods from about 5 to 8pm. Biggest bass took a clam.

Can I suggest you guys use vhf channel 68 rather than 17? 17 is for government use, and you run the risk of a fine... Albeit a small risk as I never heard of anyone being fined for using 17.

On another note, good numbers of eel are showing up in the river.

Glad someone mentioned this. 16 is ok to call someone but you should not stay on16 to talk go to 68. You are supposed to monitor 16 so the coast guard can tell you if an emergency comes up or a boater gets into trouble. To reach ships, tugs or bridges channel 13.

Well looks like rain Saturday afternoon. Oh well, I am volunteering for a pit bull rescue in the morning so I am going to wait till Sunday. Going to do a all day run Sunday though. I will start using channel 68. Gravy, I will be down your way so call out for me, lets find them and catch them. Good luck all, Chuckles
