The blue fish attack has definitely slowed down, but they are not gone by any means! Cut baits and popping plugs are still scoring on these tackle busters, just not in the numbers they have been. Short to keeper size bass are still being taken on clams. Remember the Governor’s Cup Tournament is this Sunday in IBSP and our shop will be open late Saturday evening and early Sunday morning for all your fishing needs… John Yac
Blue fish are still being taken along our beaches and bay areas. Keeper bass remain in the mix, it’s just hard to get passed the blues. Cut baits, swimming and popping plugs along with metals are doing the trick on these fish. Still no crabs out back, but that should change any day… John Yac
The big blues are not only out front but also still in the bay! This weekend we had two gents from Pa. weather the AM fog and rent one of our boats, 4 hours later they were cleaning 6 nice size blues out back. Not bad for their 1st trip of the season! Large blues with a sprinkle of some nice keeper bass are out front daily. Pick your method of attack, bait or lures and hit the beach!… John Yac
The blue fish massacre continues! Blue fishing to my memory hasn’t been this hot with these size fish in these numbers for quite some time. Just about anything you throw out from cut bait to anything you have in your tackle bag will be taken by this massive eating machine that has been roaming our beaches and bay areas. It’s hard to tell but larger size keeper bass have also moved in, bass in the 20 to 30 lb. class are taking bunker spoons on the troll, while high teens to mid twenty lb. bass in the surf are falling to swimming plugs and cut baits, that is if you can get them passed the blue fish!! While all this hot action is going on don’t forget our (Heaviest Fish) weighed in each month will receive a $50.00 store gift card! Good Luck!… John Yac
Now that’s what you call Blue Fish!! Fish anywhere from 5 lbs. to 19 lbs. made there way to the scales yesterday from Ortley Beach to IBSP. The highlight of the day for our shop was Tim Harmon’s 36″ 18.15 lb. striped bass caught on a bunker chunk. Tim is leading our monthly heaviest fish contest with a shot at winning a $50.00 gift card, keep that in mind when you land a monster it may be worth a trip to our scale. Bunker and clams are not the only baits that are working on these fish. Poppers, swimmers and metals are all good choices right now… John Yac
Big blues hit the surf in IBSP yesterday! Fish up to 11.65 lbs. made there way to our scale. Cut bunker was the way to go on these large blues. Clams are still accounting for small to keeper size bass being caught in the surf. The bay in our area has slowed down quite a bit with the occasional small blue being taken on cut bait from our dock. Crabbing should start any day but nothing as yet. We will have a few boats in the water available to rent this weekend… John Yac
Great forecast today! There are some fish in the inlets and along the ocean fronts. Small to keeper size bass on clams while blues have slowed way down on cut bunker. Availability of bait is increasing and water temps are on the rise… John Yac

Blues, Blues and more Blues!! If there is water in front of you more than likely you’ll find blue fish in mixed sizes. As what to use, poppers, swimmers and metals are all working for the plug guys. The bait fisherman are using cut bunker and clams to score. Mixed in all this madness are small bass, not many keepers thou, but they will be here soon as water temps and available baits are both on the rise… John Yac
