Good to see some large bass in the area. Still a bait game for the most part down here but the word were hearing from a few reliable sources up north is that large bass and blues are being caught on large pencil poppers in the surf. Blue fish are still in the mix along with some nice sized blow fish off our local beaches. The back bay is still producing small blues in the 3 to 5 lb range on cut bunker. We have plenty of fresh bunker and fresh clams and remember today is WACKY WEDNESDAY our clams are $3.75 per dozen!.
Striped bass and blue fish in the ocean, with a nice pick of blow fish for those fishing for them. The catches seem to be mostly on bait partly due to the few fisherman throwing artificial lures. The bay right now is mostly blue fish in the 3 to 5 lb range on cut bunker fished right on the bottom. John Yac
Not many guys out yesterday but those who fished didn’t have a bad day. Brian Voliva came in with his first bass of the season as well as a couple others. Clams and bunker are still the way to go on the surf and we have plenty of fresh clams and bunker with an assortment of frozen baits for your needs.
The back seemed to produce some nice sized blues yesterday afternoon and into the evening. Blues were chasing small pods of bunker which produced a 9.7lb and 9.6 on the scale. The Zirilli family came in with an 8lb blue which was caught on cut bunker.
We had a few bass hit the scale from the surf yesterday with Pete Fiori bringing in 2 which were caught on clams at IBSP. Clams and cut bunker seem to be doing the trick in the surf. We have fresh bunker and clams as well as an assortment of frozen baits to fill your needs.
It’s that time of the year again, Fluke Season! (5) fish 17 1/2″ is your limit. The ocean front is producing a mixed bag depending on the method and bait you choose. Striped bass, blue fish, fluke and blow fish are all available. Cut bait is still the way to go, but if artificial lures are your choice a well presented one fished with confidence will produce. As always we have a full line fresh and frozen bait for all your fishing needs. John Yac
Island Beach State Park is finally open 24-7 for fishing! The bite continues to be the same bass and blues on cut bait and clams, but now some nice keeper bass are being taken on artificial baits from swimming plugs to rubber jigs. The back bay action seems to be running hot and cold with bluefish and bass being taken on cut bunker and metal. Fluke season opens Saturday the 18th, (5) fish 17 1/2″ is your limit. We carry a full line of fresh and frozen baits.along with sand worms and possible live killies by Saturday or shortly there after. John Yac

Slow day yesterday with not many guys out there. Bass and blues are still hitting clams and bunker in the surf with a good pick of blow fish if you want them. We have fresh bunker and clams as well as an assortment of frozen baits for your needs.
Blues were caught in the back yesterday afternoon in the 5-8 pound range on bunker chunks.
The reduced amount of fisherman on the beach yesterday were treated to a dinning table treat. Large Northern Puffers (Blow Fish) were jumping on high-lo rigs baited with clams that were being fished for striped bass. The bass and blue fish bite yesterday was a little slow though one keeper managed to hit our scale. So if blow fish is your thing now is the time to hit the beach with small long shank hooks and stripes of clam. John Yac
Once you get passed the chill it looks like a great day. The ocean is still giving up some nice keeper bass and blue fish mostly on cut bait, but we did have a few fish caught on swimming plugs and metal. The back bay has stepped it up a notch the passed couple of days, lots of blue fish in the 4 to 8 lb range and a few keeper sized bass mixed in. The bite has been mostly on fresh cut bunker, but metal has been working off the flats. John Yac
A lot of short bass were caught yesterday with a few keepers mixed in. There are blow fish in the surf as well nipping at clams so if your into them downsize to a blow fish rig and catch em up.
Blues up to 32 inches were in the back yesterday afternoon for those who were chunking bunker and fighting the wind.
