Fishing Report

Fluke off to a slow start while blues and bass keep the heat on! Between boats trolling and kayaks snagging and dropping nice size bass are consistently finding there way to the local scales. Mix in medium to large size blues and bass falling to well presented baits and lures from the sand and you have a nice spring run underway. The fluke are slow in starting but that should change shortly. The bay is still giving up some nice blues from the docks and rental boats. Yesterday two of our regular customers took a 4 hour cruse on one of our rental boats and came back with 11 blues weighing up to 11.5 lbs. Crabbing from the dock is slow getting started but with the warmer temperatures forecasted for the up coming next few days thing should pick up… John Yac

Blues, Bass, and fluke all being caught yesterday from the surf and boat. The spring run of fish seems to be taking hold with the bay and ocean side both producing fish. Just pick your method in each situation and work at it, success will come. Cut bunker, clams, and squid are natural baits doing the trick. Poppers, swimmers and metals are good artificial choices. The boats are once again enjoying landing large bass on the troll with bunker spoons. If trolling is not your thing then finding schools of bunker and using the snag and drop method is deadly! … John Yac

Things are about the same. Large blues and a few keeper bass are being taken from Seaside Park thru IBSP. Cut bait and clams with popping plugs and swimmers are all scoring on these fish. Fluke season opens Friday the 22nd, 5 fish at 18″ is the daily bag limit per angler. The special 2 fish at 16″ program will be in effect this year again (surf caught only) in IBSP. These fish must hit the check station before leaving the park… John Yac

Slow pick yesterday in the surf! A couple of large blues and a nice keeper bass fell to well presented lures and baits. Blue fish find it hard to pass up a popper and bass just can’t pass up a clam. This sums up the methods used yesterday to fool a few nice fish. After todays lousy forecast the rest of the week looks good with more favorable winds predicted and fishing will surely improve…John Yac

Fishing Report

Fishing conditions not so great for the Governors Cup Fishing Tournament, the surf was up and holding bottom was a challenge. Not many fish were caught, too bad for the participants with the excellent blue fish bit we have been experiencing a good catch was anticipated. More bass are starting to show out front on cut bait and clams. The bite has been a night time one as shown to me by a visiting angler over the weekend. The boats trolling for bass out front were experiencing a slow pick with only a few small keepers to show for there efforts. The crabs are finally making a long awaited appearance off our dock, several small ones were coming up in the pots a good sign of things to come!… John Yac

The blue fish attack has definitely slowed down, but they are not gone by any means! Cut baits and popping plugs are still scoring on these tackle busters, just not in the numbers they have been. Short to keeper size bass are still being taken on clams. Remember the Governor’s Cup Tournament is this Sunday in IBSP and our shop will be open late Saturday evening and early Sunday morning for all your fishing needs… John Yac

Blue fish are still being taken along our beaches and bay areas. Keeper bass remain in the mix, it’s just hard to get passed the blues. Cut baits, swimming and popping plugs along with metals are doing the trick on these fish. Still no crabs out back, but that should change any day… John Yac

Fishing Report

The big blues are not only out front but also still in the bay! This weekend we had two gents from Pa. weather the AM fog and rent one of our boats, 4 hours later they were cleaning 6 nice size blues out back. Not bad for their 1st trip of the season! Large blues with a sprinkle of some nice keeper bass are out front daily. Pick your method of attack, bait or lures and hit the beach!… John Yac

Fishing Report

The blue fish massacre continues! Blue fishing to my memory hasn’t been this hot with these size fish in these numbers for quite some time. Just about anything you throw out from cut bait to anything you have in your tackle bag will be taken by this massive eating machine that has been roaming our beaches and bay areas. It’s hard to tell but larger size keeper bass have also moved in, bass in the 20 to 30 lb. class are taking bunker spoons on the troll, while high teens to mid twenty lb. bass in the surf are falling to swimming plugs and cut baits, that is if you can get them passed the blue fish!! While all this hot action is going on don’t forget our (Heaviest Fish) weighed in each month will receive a $50.00 store gift card! Good Luck!… John Yac
