Fishing Report

With the change in wind, both speed and direction, the surf conditions are improving by the hour. This is good new for those anglers fishing the Barrier Island Beach Brawl Tournament today and tomorrow. In theory clams should produce after a good blow but the oily scent from a bunker chunk is hard to beat. Either way check your baits often and keep things fresh. Bait fishing not for you?, then try some bucktails and metals… John Yac

Fishing Report

Not much to report due to the relentless N, N.E. winds out front over the past several days. The winds are forecasted to turn N.W. sometime tonight into tomorrow morning, but we’re going to need a little time for the surf to clean up and get back to normal. Mean while the back is still producing for those willing to check things out. Small jigs, metals, swimmers and small poppers are your choices for back water exploration… John Yac

Winds yesterday made the ocean front just about unfishable. With more of the same including a 60% chance of rain today in the forecast, fishing the surf has to be put on hold for now. But the good news is! The back bay has fish! Bass and blues are chasing metals, swimmers and small poppers throughout the day, it’s just a matter of being in the right place at the right time… John Yac

Strong NE winds this morning is making it a bear to cast plugs in the surf. You will be limited to heavy metals and bucktails to get any distance at all. As far as bait goes, 8 to 10 ounces of lead just to keep your presentation in front of you will be required. But through it all small to medium size blues and now some just short bass are still present, it’s just a matter of getting to them… John Yac

Fall may be in the air today, but it will warm back up over the next several days. Blues continued to charge the beaches yesterday keeping anglers busy who were fishing whole and cut mullet. Don’t forget your hoodies before venturing out today! Good luck to all those future surf anglers taking part in the Seaside Hights fishing club’s kids surf tournament today in Seaside Hights. Remember we still have some fresh clams in the shell while they last!… John Yac

 A dry day with stiff NW winds in the forecast should bring more anglers to the surf today. With plenty of bait available and dropping water temps things should start to heat up soon. Seaside Hights fishing club is hosting their annual children’s fishing tournament tomorrow. For details call (609) 635-2122. We have fresh mullet and fresh bunker for your fishing pleasures.

On a somber note, Will Nitschmann our Folsom Tackle Rep. passed away suddenly Wednesday, Will was a gentlemen’s gentlemen and is a great loss to the fishing community, R.I.P. my friend, we will surly miss you… John Yac

Fishing Report

Westerly winds today in the forecast should flatten out the surf a bit and make it a lot easer to hold bottom. To spite the rough surf conditions, the blues are still around. If you intend to fish IBSP today around high tide it would be a good idea to call ahead and check if the beach buggy access roads are open. They were closed yesterday due to water being all the up to the dunes… John Yac

Fishing Report

Welcome October! The stage is set for the long awaited “Fall Run”, with bait continuing to poor out of the inlets and run the beaches. Along with the steady supply of small to medium blues, more and more “just” short bass are finding their way into the action. These bass are taking Polaris style poppers, SP style minnows and rubber paddle tails all in sizes to match the available bait. If striped bass is your main target, concentrate your efforts on first light, last light and the dark of night to increase you chances of hooking up. There is still some keeper crabs being taken out back off our dock, not a ton, but some nice ones never the less… John Yac

Another great surf fishing day on tap! There is plenty of bait with plenty of blues in pursuit. Resident bass can’t seem to resist the large schools of mullet on their seasonal run with more and more of them being taken on artificial lures daily. The larger blues and bass can’t be far behind… John Yac
