Fishing Report

Weather’s HOT fishing’s NOT. Sorry for such a downer of an opening, but it is what it is. Surf fishing in our area seems to be on hold for the most part, and were hoping upon hope that the upcoming cold front will break this oppressive weather and kick start the surf action a bit… John Yac

Fishing Report

Not much to report due to yesterday’s oppressive weather. With today’s better forecast the slow bluefish fluke pick in the surf should continue. The night time shark action remains good in IBSP. Crabbing in the bay is steady while small snapper blues are on the rise… John Yac

Fishing Report

If you are new to surf fishing and really never seen a cow nose ray up close with a 3 ft. plus wing span now is the time to check them out. IBSP yesterday at top of the tide had “rays on parade” from the wash to out passed the first wave, rays in singles, twos, and threes lazily flapped their wings as they moved south with the tide. Not the greatest thing for the surf fisherman but interesting to watch never the less. On the brighter note, sharking in the park after dark is doing well. Remember these Sand Tigers should be released unharmed ASAP for they are on the endangered species list… John Yac

Fishing Report

Pick, Pick, Pick is the cry of most of the surf fishermen I have spoken to the past couple of days. With small baits in the wash small blues and fluke seem to be interested at times. If your looking for a good bend in your rod this time of the year night time sharking is your only choice. The night tides are also bring large cow nose rays into the feeding zone. Crabbing remains good especially from the boats just a little south of us. But shore bound crabbers are still putting together decent catches, the only problem is weeding through all those shorts… John Yac

Fishing Report

More tolerable weather forecasted for the weekend should make surf fishing more attractive. It’s hard to get a good report on what’s happening with so few anglers. But just going by the time of year, fluke and small blues should be the one two punch right now during the daylight hours with shark fishing during the night tides. For those dyed in the wool bass hounds, night tides during July and even into the first week of August has seen some large bass on cut bunker. Crabbing remains good and more and more snappers are showing up daily… John Yac

Fishing Report

Keep your rain gear close by! Today will see showers on and off but the good news is on shore winds and high tide at mid day. These conditions could produce a good surf fishing day. Add to that a very few beach goers and the number one benefit is no flies!… John Yac

Fishing Report

There are some nice size fluke being taken in IBSP not a ton but some nice 2 – 4 lb. fish. These great eating flatties seem to be favoring a variety of natural cut baits. Bluefish strips, peanut bunker, live killies, spearing and squid combos or just squid strips alone all fished on ether a bucktail jig or a 3-way swivel rig with a dresses hook or not. Night time sharking is in full swing with some nights producing better than others. The key here is a strong large hook with a stout wire leader and a good size chunk of mullet or bunker… John Yac

Fishing Report

We find ourselves in the summer surf fishing mode now, wow did that come fast! Small to medium size blues mostly on cut baits, bass mostly shorts with the occasional keeper taking clams. Fluke this time of year is the number one target in the surf. The best method to score on these tasty fish is bucktails tipped with gulp or squid. The non game fish this time of year consists of rays and dogfish, the latter if bled, gutted and filleted asap makes a surprisingly good tasting table fare. Crabbing remains good from our rental boats and dock… John Yac

Fishing Report

Fishing improves some along with the weather. Big blues have been hitting the beaches just north of us. Fluke and king fish are taking up residence in the surf. Some whispers of keeper bass on bait have been circulating but we have no solid proof as of yet. The back bay behind IBSP is still seeing top water bluefish action and some nice keeper fluke are being taken on the  back side of Barnegat Inlet. Crabbing remains decent. John Yac

Fishing Report

Larger blues, more fluke and kingfish is the surf report for today. Nice size blues on cut bait, keeper fluke taking bucktails tipped with gulp or squid and kingfish on small hooks baited with worms, strips of clam and the ultimate stay on the hook fish after fish “Fishbites” artificial blood worm scented strips. Fluke around the BB and BI buoys and at the back of the inlets. Crabbing remains steady… John Yac
