Fishing Report

Great weather brings good fishing! The blue fish bite continues with the number of keeper bass mixed in on the rise. Cut bunker is still the number one bait for these two, but bass on clams is also on the rise. Expect some more fishing pressure as the holiday weekend unfolds. But the big question still remains, when will the crabbing pick up ?? John Yac

Fishing Report

The first holiday weekend of the warm weather season is knocking on the door. Expect a few more anglers at your favorite fishing hole. The bay is loaded with blues taking poppers in our area and the local bridges are holding a fair amount small bass. The beaches out front are producing blues and a few keeper bass. Crabbing still remains a mystery but as we say any day now… John Yac

Fishing Report

Another good day for surf fishing! Blues and some keeper bass are cursing our local beaches taking cut bunker, clams and a assortment of artificial lures. Poppers, swimmers, bucktails and metals all seem to be working. Still very slow in the crabbing department… John Yac

Fishing Report

All sizes of blues remain in our area. Along with these eating machines there are a few nice keeper bass mixed in. Cut bunker remains the bait of choice while poppers, bucktails, and medals are always worth a try. With light winds and overcast skies along with light fishing pressure today looks like a great day to hit the beach…John Yac

Fishing Report

The action in the surf gets better by the day. Slammer blues down to cocktail size seem to be everywhere. More and more keeper bass are also finding there way to the scales taking everything from cut bunker to bucktails. The boats trolling large bunker spoons are also having banner days. Crabbing remains slow for some reason but as you know that will change on a dime. Tomorrow is the Governors Cup Surf Tournament at Island Beach State Park. We will be open at 4:30 AM for all your bait and tackle needs… John Yac

Fishing Report

Large schools of bait starting to come in close to the beach! You know what happens when large schools of bunker come in close, they bring large blues and large bass close to the shoreline. James Blandino was out on his kayak this morning and ran into one of these large schools of bait, he began snagging and dropping and was rewarded with a 47″ – 40.25 lb. bass, which he weighed-in at our shop. Things are starting to heat up in close now so don’t sit home and wait for the phone to ring. Crabbing is still very slow out back, but that should change very soon… John Yac

Fishing Report

Blue fish seem to be just about everywhere you look from first light to dusk. These fish can be taken in the inlets along the beach and just about anywhere in the bay. Cut bunker is still the number one bait for these tackle busters along with metals and buck tails, but dunking clams along with your bunker will have all your bases covered… John Yac

Fishing Report

Outstanding weather forecasted for the next couple of days! No excuse for not hitting the beach! More and more keeper bass are hitting the scales with some nice size bluefish mixed in. The lion’s share of the action has been on bait, but the skilled plug guys are holding there own. Large schools of bunker are starting to show and you know the old adage, find the bait and you will find the fish. Crabbing is super slow right now but with this up coming hot weather that all could change… John Yac

Fishing Report

There are some nice keeper bass starting to be taken in our area now both in the surf and from the boats. Yesterday brought some nice bass to the local scales both from the surf and boat. Cut bait, and clams in the surf while trolling large bunker spoons in the ocean accounted for the day’s catch. The bite will only improve next week with the improving weather and wind directions. Rain gear and a drive to catch fish my just put you into some action today… John Yac
