Fishing Report

The surf and bay bite remains the same! Bass, blues and now fluke are being taken by diligent anglers willing to put in the time regardless of the weather or the stage of the tide out front. Bait remains the number one choice of these hungry fish. While artificial lures, fished by dedicated plug casters are also cashing in on this spring bite. The boat guys both snag and drop and bunker spoon trollers have been finding a hit or miss bite lately… John Yac

Overall no a bad Memorial Day weekend in the surf! A few really nice size bass plus double digit weight class blues were taken clams and cut bunker in the surf. The bay was invaded by schools of cocktail blues popping up all over out back of us. I wish I could tell you when the crabbing will start, but this seems to be a hard year to figure out… John Yac

Fishing Report (Memorial Day!)

Take a few minutes out of your busy holiday plans today to think about those brave men and women who gave their lives so you can enjoy your family and friend this holiday weekend! God bless those who paid the ultimate price so we may have the freedoms we enjoy in this great country of ours!… John Yac

Rain or shine, boat or surf when the fish are here the bite is on. Yesterday’s beautiful sunshine brought a 39 lb. 48″ bass to our scale. This beauty was trolled up on a bunker spoon by Steve Juliano and Dan Leston trolling out front. This morning in the poring rain, the Ortley surf produced a nice size bass on a clam see (The Dock Outfitters Instagram for picture). The bluefish bite out back off the dock and from boats anchored up in the nearby vicinity  continues. The blues range from cocktail size to double digit slammers, cut baits off the dock and cut baits and poppers from the boats seem to be the ticket!… John Yac

The dock out back has been hot! Blue fish, blue fish, blue fish! is the cry coming off the dock. All last night and so far today, cocktail and larger size blues are taken cut bunker fished right on the bottom. IBSP has already giving up some nice flatties from the surf, definitely a good sign!… John Yac

A little quit yesterday in the surf compared to the past several days. The good news is! –  Fluke season opens today and will run through September 22. The bag limit remains 3 fish at 18″ with IBSP continuing their special fluke program, 2 fish at 16″ from the beach or jetty only!! The bay bite is still good with a mix of cocktail and larger size blues, mix in some small bass behind IBSP and in the bridge areas… John Yac

Nice weather and decent fishing, what more can we ask for? Not that everyone who ventures out in pursuit of fish is going home with catch in hand, but a good percentage are. Bait is still out fishing artificial lures, but both are producing never the less. The boat guys trolling bunker spoons are starting to catch. Case in point, John Pedone trolling spoons out front yesterday got into some quality fish. His biggest one broke the 40 lb. class, nice going John! Check out the picture of this fish on our Facebook page… John Yac

The spring bite continues! Bass and blues continue to take bait and lures alike along our beaches out front. The bay from behind IBSP north to the Mathis / Tunney Bridge has been producing bass and blues also on bait and lures… John Yac

Fishing Report

Fishing out front and back in the bay is on the upward tick for sure. The bay out back of us has produced some nice slammer blues in the double digit weight class. These fish are being taken both from the dock and from boats just off the dock out by the channel area. The dock action is all on bait so far while the boats were throwing poppers. Some keeper crabs are showing their faces in local overnight traps, always a good sign!… John Yac

Fishing Report

Those who were willing to brave the elements yesterday were rewarded with some nice fish. Bait fishermen needed 10 oz. plus sinkers to keep their baits out in front of them yesterday while the plug guys were throwing anything that would pierce into the wind. Some nice blues showed up off the end of our dock yesterday on cut bunker. We have plenty of fresh bunker and clams for tomorrows Governor’s Cup surf tournament in IBSP…John Yac
