Coastal And Bay Water Temperatures Are Dropping

The past few days Masseys ditch water temperatures have plummeted to a low of sixty-seven degrees at low tide this morning, only going up a tick or two for high tide. In four days it has dropped ten plus degrees. The cool nights are dropping the inland bay water temperatures. That is why the striped bass have schooled up thicker and are feeding so heavy. That triggers them to get ready for the fall migration. Some will join the fall migration, others will stay. All are feeding heavily.

Masseys Ditch temperatures current to today from this week

The surf and lower Delaware Bay has dropped to seventy degrees and increase a bit in the afternoon. It is still comfortable to wade and fish, not swimming for this cowboy. We are looking at eighty degree weather this weekend with the low in the mid sixties. Don’t expect the water temperatures to increase too much. At least it will be beautiful and not raining. Get to catching, it’s time!

Fish On!
