Fishing Report

Another 3-H day for sure! The few hardy souls who dared to venture out yesterday were picking some small fluke and small blues according to one of our customers. Very few fish were taken by him and his buddy. Fall can’t come soon enough for me with it’s cool crisp mornings and NW winds blowing over your left shoulder. Large schools of adult bunker with fish busting on them and whales breaching, it’s coming, but for now it’s nice to dream! Crabbing and snappers are slow out back… John Yac

The dreaded three H’s are upon us, hazy, hot and humid! Yes the next three days are forecasted to be brutal, so stay well hydrated, wear loose light colored clothing and rest often. If air conditioning is making you crazy, try standing knee deep in the surf with a rod in your hand and hopefully you’ll forget about the oppressive heat back on land. Small to keeper size fluke and snapper to tailor size blues are cruising the surf. Crabbing outback and off our rental boats is improving… John Yac

Tired of hearing bucktail gulp combos for fluke. Back in stock are some really nice LIVE KILLIES, you can combo them with our pre-cut squid strips for the best natural presentation in the world of fluking from boat or surf… John Yac

Take advantage of this great weather today! With air temps in the high 70’s to low 80’s and winds out of the SE being at the waters edge today is just the ticket. Small to keeper size fluke are taking well placed bucktail gulp combos. Don’t want to cast and walk? Cut some small pieces of bunker or mullet, bait up a high-lo rig, spike the rod and sit back and relax. Cocktail size blues will be more than happy to take your presentations… John Yac

Still some nice fluke in the surf finding their way to local scales, the trick is just getting past all those shorts. One way to solve this problem is to go bigger on your fluke bait presentations, this should keep those small flatties off your baits. Small blues and small bass are hanging around the inlet rocks. Blow fishing in the bay by boat is heating up. The crabbing is ok, just a matter of getting by a ton of shorts… John Yac

Small blues and fluke remain the main targets in the surf right now. The usual bucktail gulp combos on the fluke, while small meals are working well on the blues. The crabbing out back has not returned to the bite we experienced in July as of yet. Keepers are still being taken but in far fewer numbers. Snapper fishing is decent… John Yac

Easterly winds spells NO FLIES!, for this time of the year that’s just as good as fish in the wash chasing bait! Well it may not be that simple, but schools of bait are still moving up and down our beaches, and as you know find the bait and most of the time you will find the fish. NE winds always me think of fall which motivates me to pick up a rod and give it a shot, so why not do the same?… John Yac

The beat goes on along the surf line! Mixed size blues chasing small baits up and down the beach. Fluke are still being taken, but the trick is getting passed the bluefish. Thin and small metals are doing the trick on the blues, bucktail gulp or bucktail squid combos will work on the flatties… John Yac

Fishing Report

Judging by the action right now in the surf, you would never think it’s only mid August! Rain fish and peanut bunker seem to be everywhere and hot on their tails are some nice cocktail to tailor size blues. Reports of short to keeper size bass here and there are also coming in. Fluke are also still being taken around the inlet area. Add to that the always elusive Spanish Mackerel are also being reported. We had a boat come in yesterday with some nice blow fish taken in the area of the BB buoy. Crabbing out back remains ok with the best catches coming at first light and through the early morning hours. Snappers seem to be increasing in size also… John Yac

 

 

Fishing Report

Well no more crazy bass action out back yesterday! It was business as usual, weeding through a bunch of short crabs to put a decent size catch together. Small snapper blues are still around. The beach is producing some nice 1 to 3 lb. blues along with a few keeper fluke. The blues are taking cut mullet, and small chunks of bunker, while small metals and small poppers will also do the trick. The fluke are hitting killie squid combos in the natural bait department while bucktail gulp combos still seems to be the top producing method for these flatties. We heard about some blow fish being taken in the area of the BB buoy, for those who don’t know where that is its located, it’s just off Forked River in Barnegat Bay. We have clam chum logs and all the salted clams you need!… John Yac
