Just got back fron NJ on a work related matter but did get a chance to stop down in the Cape May area. I checked out the beaches and talked with fishermen along the shore. Did not see one bird or any bait at all. They are still catching but mostly gear guys using bait and fishing off the bottom. Did see one old timer hook a nice fish but broke it off. Most of the fishermen down there said that at this time of year fish are deep so if any of you are thinking of going down that way bring your heavy sink tips. Most folks fishing on the beaches thought that the season was really begining to wind down so if you got a need to continue fishing you might want to go further south.
