By DAMON TATUMDAMON TATEM BEACH, PIER AND BRIDGE FISHING Corolla to Coquina Beach Summertime weather and warm inshore water should provide a variety of small bottom fish to keep surfcasters busy along the northern beaches this week.

By DAMON TATUMDAMON TATEM BEACH, PIER AND BRIDGE FISHING Corolla to Coquina Beach Pier anglers in Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head should land fair numbers of mixed small bottom fish just about every day when the water inshore is somewhat dirty.

By JIM FREDA Striped bass action has slowed along the beach in Monmouth and Ocean counties despite the fact that there is still plenty of bunker around to trigger the activity. Many boaters put in their time working the pods over with few fish to show for it. This can change quickly, however, if schools of striped bass decide to set up on them again. If it does, it will be a matter of being in the right place at the right time. One spot that has consistently produced fish is the...

By DAMON TATUMDAMON TATEMBY DAMON TATUM BEACH, PIER AND BRIDGE FISHING Corolla to Coquina Beach Surfcasters should catch mainly a mixture of small bottom fish this week along the northern beaches. Small croaker, spot, sea mullet, sand perch and a few pigfish should be beached just about every day by bottom fishing anglers using fresh shrimp or bloodworms. No. 4 to 6 hooks are preferred, since these fish have small mouths, making them difficult to catch with larger hooks. Surfcasters...

By JIM FREDA Acres and of bunker are still present in Monmouth and Ocean county waters with the area from Bradley Beach to Mantoloking having the largest concentrations in the last week. The action for big striped bass, however, has been like a roller coaster ride as each day has its ups or downs and special twists or turns. There is usually a bite each day somewhere in the above- mentioned area but it has been occurring with no rhyme or reason and at no particular place. Sometimes it has...

By Steve Grant, The Hartford Courant, Conn. Jul. 5--On a late spring evening with the sun setting, the mouth of the Connecticut River was sprinkled with powerboats and kayaks from Old Saybrook to Old Lyme, most everybody fishing. They were after striped bass -- big ones. Herring and alewives were returning to the sea after spawning. The stripers -- and the anglers -- were waiting, among them Scott Karsten of Glastonbury, a lawyer, and Dixon M. Merkt of Lyme, a guide who was fishing...
