Fishing Report

With yesterday’s crazy weather there was little doing from the surf scene. The crabs from the dock remained steady for those willing to crab around the storm. John Yac

Fishing Report

Blue fish and fluke in the surf with a few bass mixed in. Starting to hear of a few brown sharks in the surf at night as the water warms on cut bunker. Crabbing from our boats and from the dock has remained steady. John Yac

Report 6-23

We had 2 more nice bass weighed in from a kayak off Ortley Beach 29.3 and 26.3#… Crabbing is a lttle slow with the Dock crabbers averaging 1-2 dozen and the rental boats coming in with2-4 dozen…John

Fishing Report

The surf report seems to be in the same mode it’s been for the last few days. Except for a change in wind direction, Blue fish and keeper bass are being taken on bait and metal for those anglers willing to put in the time. The bay has given up a few weakfish in the 16″ to 18″ size on cut bunker, small blues are still chasing poppers while the crabbing has been steady from our boats and the dock. John Yac

Fishing Report

Now that our Father’s Day obligations are over and we can get back to fishing. Light southerly winds today should change the surf out of that easterly mode it’s been in for a week. Still some keeper bass in the surf along with a mix of different size blues. Bait and metal with teaser tails seem to be the trick. The bay still has schools of small blues on the prowl. The crabbing has slowed a bit from the hot and heavy mode we were enjoying for a couple of weeks. Snapper blues although small are starting to show there faces at the dock. John Yac

Cocktail blues were the word at the Casino Fishing Pier yesterday afternoon. The 2-4 lb fish came in thick on the incoming tides nailing metals tipped with a bucktail. There were also a few cow nose rays landed as well. Crabbing on the dock here was so so but the rental boats did a little better. Snapper blues are starting to show up around the docks but are still very small. Scott


Another beautiful morning here in Seaside Heights. Light NE winds and sunshine… Small blues continue to provide lots of opportunities for anglers in the bay and from the sand…. The crabbing off the pier has slowed but the boats were still doing decent… I’ll post an update later in the day…


Beautiful morning here on the island…Winds are still NE but very light at this time and the Sun has returned to the sky!!! Small blues continue to be caught on metal, bucktails and poppers in Barnegat inlet from the rocks… John

Bay report

Blues continue to be caught @ the BB buoy on metals and poppers along with some fluke… Crabbing bounced back more quickly then I thought…¬†Our rental boats caught an average of 2-4 dozen keeper blueclaws yesterday and a couple of 1-3lb blues were also caught using cut mullet…John


The phenomenal crabbing has finally slowed to a pick after Monday’s full moon.. Look for the crabbing to improve again by mid to late in the week… Plenty of cocktail blues and hickory shad in the surf for those anglers throwing metals and poppers and a few fluke are also being taken from the sand…John
