The Largest one day Bass tournament in the north east is back after being canceled due to the devastation of Sandy. The morning started off sloppy with a stubborn east wind that slowly subsided as the day went on. Most of the action was on the outside along the beach on diamond jigs. Curt Selafani aboard the "Blue Crush" had heaviest Bass. The big Striper fell to a jig off of Sailors Haven and weighed in at 44 3/4 pounds. Chris Hooker on the boat "Spent" had second place with a 35 1/2 pounder caught off Gilgo. The third place fish was caught in the bay by John Willis near the wreck buoy and tipped the scale at 34 1/2 pounds. Check out the link below for the final standings and more images.

Thursday’s debut episode opens in Clinton Connecticut as New England editor Toby Lapinski and local ‘tog sharpie John Frione share a highly specialized jigging technique for blackfish that scores big with bulldogs and works throughout the region. Senior editor Fred Golofaro and bass fishing guru John Paduano are up next, demonstrating the effectiveness of “snap jigging,” a highly aggressive method that can rock tough-to-tempt stripers, weaks, fluke and blues. Try this technique if you want to be fully engaged in the task at hand but be forewarned, it is a real workout. If the idea of snap jigging captures your fancy, you can check it out further in the feature article on page 10 of this week’s Plus edition to get a double-dose of solid information before heading out to try it on your own. Lastly, The Fisherman TV! takes you to the HackensackRiver where New Jersey editor Chris Lido and striper fanatic Howard Owens will open your eyes with solid linesiders in an environment many would pass up without a second thought.

It's hard to believe that 35 years have gone by since Marine Mate of Lindenhurst opened their doors. Many boating supply companies have come and gone. Marine Mate has withstood the test of time because they know their south shore customers needs. Stop by on April 6th for their big sale and grab a hot dog too.

There are are many tide prediction apps for the iPhone and Android and believe me I have tried many of them. I now have a current favorite and it's simply called High Tide and it can be found on the Google play store and Apple app store. I like this app for it's speed of finding tidal information for you current location. This app uses your phone's location and finds the closest tidal prediction station without having to go through a search process or scrolling through a map then clicking around. When your on a rocking boat you will appreciate the simplicity. Android users have the added feature of a home screen widget which you set the location for. This widget displays real time tidal information. Another nice feature is no cell service or Wi-Fi is required to use this app. This is a paid app and it will set yo back .99 cents. My first tide clock coast me $40 and it was only good for one location, well worth the buck!
