Fishing Report

It’s Friday night and you know what that means, FISH FRY at the dock. If you like fresh cod, shrimp, scallops, clam strips, whole belly clams fried to perfection The Dock Café is where you should be on a Friday night 3 PM to 7 PM. Our dinning room over looks the dock and bay. Outside seating is also available weather permitting… John Yac

Summer is finally here along with the weekend crowds. Weekdays are a lot better so far with less fisherman and sun bathers to contend with. The bass bite in the surf remains a pick and fluke fishing is starting to pick up. Crabbing remains very good from our dock and crabbing boats… John Yac

Fishing Report

The surf bite remains quiet. A slow pick of smaller blue fish and a occasional short to keeper size bass rounds off the surf bite at present. Fluking remains a inlet area bite for now but these fish should be in the surf soon. Crabbing in the bay is excellent for this early in the year and our dock out back is producing well. Our boats have been doing well also with outstanding catches coming from the “good luck point” area… John Yac

Fishing Report

Fishing seems to be in a holding pattern. Small to medium size blues with short to keeper size bass being picked by surf anglers. The boats and kayaks are still enjoying catching some nice size bass that are chasing bunker schools. Crabbing remains steady from our dock. Fluking remains a pick around and inside Manasquan and Barnegat inlets… John Yac

Boats and Kayaks have fun, surf guys not so much! Find the schools of bunker find the fish. That’s the game being played right now by boaters and kayakers alike. The surf guy on the other hand must have the bait within casting range to score. Cut bunker and mullet along with fresh clams are covering the bait options. Swimming plugs, poppers and metals along with buck tail jigs round out the artificial lures being used. Crabbing remains hot off our dock… John Yac

Fishing Report

Boats are still doing good on the spring run bass. Trolling large bunker spoons and using the snag and drop method is putting boat anglers into 40 plus lb. fish. In contrast the surf angler right now has fewer and smaller blues with a occasional keeper bass in the mix for his targets. Crabbing remains good from our dock and we had a boat check out good luck point the other day, he returned with 4 dozen large crabs and threw back many 4 and 4 1/2 inchers… John Yac

Fishing Report

The hot bite award yesterday has to go to the blue claw crab! Catches of 2 to 3 dozen plus nice keepers was the norm for those venturing out on our dock. If crab sauce or steamed crabs or both are on your mind come on down. Fishing brought a mixed bag of fish yesterday with blues, bass, black drum and fluke all being taken by shore bound anglers. The boats a still beating up on the bass with trolling large bunker spoons and snag and drop methods accounting for fish up to 40 plus lbs…. John Yac

Fishing Report

A lot of bait in the wash but not many fish! Anglers are finding schools of bunker moving in and out of casting range from Seaside Park thru IBSP but very few fish are in pursuit. The hot spot still seems to be the very southern end of IBSP where they are picking blues and keeper bass on both lures and bait. Remember now that it’s fluke season the 2 fish at 16″ taken from the beach in the park are once again allowed. These fish count towards your 5 fish at 18″ bag limit. Crabbing out back is hot right now with catches of 2 to 3 dozen keepers per crabber the norm…John Yac

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fishing Report

Fishing has definitely slowed down a bit from the hot bluefish and bass action we have been enjoying the past several weeks. Fluke are being taken in the inlets and just inside the bays. Crabbing is on the upswing off the dock the past couple of days with catches of 2 dozen plus keepers going to those willing to try… John Yac

Fishing Report

The weekend crows are gone so getting your favorite spot to fish with little to no company becomes a reality. Keeper bass and large blues continue to be taken by shore bound anglers both with bait and artificial lures. Cut bunker and clams remains the go to baits, while poppers, swimmers and metals are the lures of choice. Crabbing off the dock remains a pick and blues of mixed sizes roam the bay its just a matter of being in the right place at the right time. Fluke are being taken in the inlets by no word about the surf yet. Looking for live killies? We got them… John Yac
