Blues, blues, and more blues is the cry of surf anglers in our area. There are blues from Manasquan Inlet to Barnegat Inlet being taken by surf fisherman on cut baits and assorted artificial lures. The bay remains a pick of blues and small bass in all the usual spots… John Yac
Big blues continue to assault the beaches in our area. Small to keeper size bass are also in the mix. Cut bait and clams on the bait side while metals, swimmers and poppers will cover your artificial needs. Just a heads up when you are catching big blues on artificial lures. Remove the front hooks, blues 99% of the time will hit from the rear leaving that front hook swinging wildly when you are unhooking the fish. Better be safe than sorry!… John Yac
No time for wimpy rods right now along the surf. Slammer blues up to 16 plus lbs. are taken cut baits metals and poppers. Mixed in you will find short to keeper bass. The bay bite remains the same, schools of small to medium size blues moving in and out of all the usual spots with small bass at the bridges at night…. John Yac
Nice size blues with some keeper bass mixed in are keeping surf anglers busy on our local beaches. Cut bait and clams remains the number one choice right now for scoring with these fish, while SP style swimmers, poppers and metals are all good artificial choices. The bay still has blues and bass but it’s a matter of locating them. There are a few keeper crabs being taken out back from the dock… John Yac

There was a decent bite of keeper bass this morning in the surf. The fish were taken on swimming plugs and bait. More blues and bass are pushing their way further north in the bay where poppers, swimmers and metals are scoring some nice catches. Keeper crabs are still being taken out back off the dock, no real blitz but decent catches for this time of the year for those willing to put in the time… John Yac
Yesterday brought a little more action out front in the surf. Medium size blues and short to keeper size bass were taking cut bunker and clams. Reports of these fish came in from Seaside Park thru IBSP. The bite in the bay behind IBSP is still producing some nice size blues on popping plugs. A few crabbers are picking away at some keeper crabs out back off the dock… John Yac
Nice size blues remain the number on target for bay fisherman in our area. The areas behind IBSP are producing med to large blues attacking surface poppers and metals. Meanwhile out front in the surf some short to keeper size bass are taking cut baits and clams. Being at the right place at the right time is the key right now to scoring on these fish. A few crabbers had a few keepers off our dock yesterday… John Yac
Blues have moved in both in the bay and out front in the surf. Cut bunker is the number one bait for these fish. There are still reports of small bass taking clams out front when conditions are right. Crabs are starting to make there appearance off our dock and in some local overnight traps. We have FRESH bunker, FRESH clams and blood worms… John Yac
Small to medium size blues on the back side of IBSP. While the local bridges in our area are holding small to med size striped bass on night tides. We have FRESH bunker and FRESH clams along with nice size blood worms… John Yac
P.S.>>>>>> KEEPER CRABS being caught from our dock today!! Wow!!
The back bay is still the place to try for early season action. Reports of small blues and small bass have been coming in from the sedge island areas behind IBSP and also Oyster Creek has been producing. We just got a delivery in of FRESH CLAMS and nice size blood worms! The weather looks great for the weekend so why not give it a try… John Yac
