As we put the winter of 2010-11 behind us we have nothing but good weather and fishing in front of us. As of March 16th 2011 The striped bass season will open in the Hudson River north of the George Washington Bridge. Already there have been reports of fishermen catching and releasing striped bass by the Tappan Zee Bridge, Piermont Pier, Croton Park, and along the shores of Ossining and Tarrytown. There is only one bait that works this time of the year and that is of course Jack's Jumbo Bloodworms! You must be sure to ask for them by name no matter where you purchase your worms! Jack's Jumbo Bloodworms are sure catch bait every time! We have weighed in some of the biggest striped bass in past seasons caught on these worms. As the water temperature rises of course they will also be feeding on Jack's fresh bunker. Again make sure to ask for it by name! The store is fully stocked with the 2011 merchandise from rods and reels to hooks and rigs to line and sinkers. With all that is going on in the world there is no better time then now to get out and go fishing! Take a friend, Take a family member and make a day of it. Our store hours are now 8am to 6pm seven days a weeks and as the month progresses so will the business hours. The family at Jack's looks forward to seeing your here for all of your fishing needs.
PS The rental boats and the party boats sailing from Jack's will begin April 1st 2011.
PSS If you have or catch any big fish bring them in to the shop for pictures and/or possible Youtube video. Send all pictures to JacksBait@aol.com for posting.
See you soon by the seaside,
