We sure seem to be having our own shark week lately. The night bite from our local beaches have been producing some nice fighting brown sharks with a few other species mixed in. Cut fresh bunker is always the sure way to go. Daylight fishing with cut baits and small metal are still producing king fish, fluke, croakers and snapper blues. Crabbing is starting to improve somewhat from our dock and boats. John Yac
Fishing in the surf has been steady for this time of year with the usual cast of players. King fish seem to have the leading role with small blues next in line, the rest of the cast are fluke and several species of sharks. Cut bait is your ticket to this production with small metals mixed in. The bay seems to be putting on it’s own show with a slightly larger cast. Small weakfish, spot, blow fish, and small black drum along with snapper blues round off their cast. Again small cut baits and small metals will do the trick. The crabbing both from our dock and boats still remain a working game with patience and time spent paying some dividends. John Yac
Crabbing was a little slow again from the dock but the rental boats ok.
Kingfish in the surf is still hot as well as the bluefish bite off of IBSP. 3 tog were brought in today from the inlet.
The crabbing was a little slow on the dock today but the boats did ok. Kingfish along with some blues are being caught on the surf.
SHARKS!! SHARKS!! SHARKS!! That was the story yesterday. Sharks were crushing the schools of bunker off Ortley beach and Seaside Heights. The guys fishing the surf, pier, and kayaks landed sharks to nearly 100lbs!! We are receiving a shipment of fresh bunker early this afternoon so get them while you can. Fluke and kingfish have been the primary target for the surf guys the last few weeks but the cocktail blues and bonito have made a showing in the last few days. Crabbing remains so so but there are plenty of snappers and small bottom fish to keep your entertained while spending your time out on our dock. Scott
Plenty of small fish to occupy your time from the Dock. A mix of snapper blues, blowfish, kingfish, spot, small stripers and sea bass were all caught today by anglers from our Dock… On the ocean side spot and kingfish are still the hot bite with both species whacking clams and squid on high low rigs… Crabbing in the bay is still slow but we are hoping the cooler nights predicted for the next week or so will jumpstart the bite…John
Another great morning! Why not grab a rod and hit the beach! The great tasting table fair are there for the taking! No excuses now, you have to be in it to win it. John Yac
The surf is giving up some nice keeper fluke right now so why not get in on the action. Buck tail teaser rigs seem to be doing the trick with gulp or fresh bait to add scent to the rig. King fish small blues and spot round off the mixed bag you will find in the surf. Crabbing right now remains slow but keepers are still being caught by those willing to spend some time. John Yac
The crabs were a little slow on the dock today but the boats did ok. Some short stripers were caught on clams from the dock as well as a few blowfish and some snappers. Kingfish off the surf has been pretty good as well as a few keeper fluke. Austin Byrnes from Beachwood came in with 7 kingfish caught off of IBSP using clams.
Crabbing is a little slow off the Dock but there are plenty of fish aro9nd to keep you interested between checking the lines… Snapper blues, kingfish, blowfish and other asst bottom dwellers are here in good numbers… Word from the beaches is that the kingfish bite is on in Lavalette, Ortley and IBSP… Clams have been the bait of choice for our customers…JOhn
