Fishing Report

The spring run is keeping anglers busy with blues of all sizes taking cut bunker, metals and poppers. Striped bass are still in the mix with some nice keepers being landed in the surf, but the lions share of cows are being taken by boat using the snag and drop method. Fluke season will open the 23rd of this month so make sure your ready with pleanty of gulp and bucktails of all sizes. We have the largest selection of spro bucktails in every color and weight along with the best prices on the island. If your not a gulp fan then a nice squid strip tipping your jigs will do just fine…. John Yac

Blue fish are down in size a bit but not in numbers on our beaches. Striped bass are still being taken but no way near the numbers the blues are. Fresh cut baits and clams are always a sure way to go if your are looking to put some tasty treats on the table. Metal will always work when bluefish are present while poppers, especially pencils will draw the bigger fish… John Yac

Fishing Report

The change in time of the year for the Governors Cup fishing tournament turned out to be a wise one. The turn out was great, the weather was perfect, and there were fish weighed in all good things for the life of a fishing tournament. No official results as yet but that will come soon. Fishing along out front remains great, blues and striped bass are cooperating with a few black drum mixed in. Our Dock Café will be open this Tuesday morning at 7AM and will open 7 DAYS a week for the rest of the year. Thanks for your support over this passed weekend!… John Yac

Great Day for the Governors Cup at IBSP. Blue fish, bass and black drum have been making there way to the scales daily. Pods of bait are just off our beaches and where there is bait there should be fish. Fresh bunker and clams are taking the lions share of the fish, while poppers and metals are still holding their own. The crabbing off our dock has not quite started yet but we expect any day for the action to kick in. Our boats will be going in this week and we will be up to full speed buy the holiday weekend… John Yac

Great weather and great fishing what more can you ask for! The big blues moved back in yesterday and the for those on the beach like Tony Cursley one of our shop regulars weighed in the smallest blue he had and that was 12 lbs 7 ozs, all his fish were taken on cut bunker. Keeper bass are still being taken mostly on clams but not in the same numbers as the blues. The shop will be open at 5 AM Sunday May 18th… John Yac

Bass and Bluefish are still being taken in our area, the hot spots lately seem to be Ortley to Seaside Park beaches. IBSP is still giving up fish but the heaver bite seems to be just to the north. Fresh cut bunker and clams are still the way to go but poppers, swimmers and metal are good choices for the angler who will not fish bait…  John Yac

WAHOOOOO!! Cars are finally driving by the front of our shop! I almost can’t believe my eyes. The fishing has turned spotty the last few days but the blues and bass are still being taken along our beaches. Clams have been taking the big girls lately but don’t overlook that nice fresh chunk of bunker fished during the night if your looking for a wall hanger. We have fresh bunker, fresh clams, blood worms and a full line of frozen baits. Don’t forget the Governor’s Cup this Sunday at Island Beach Park. I’m sure the change of season for the tournament will produce some nice catches. It’s a great time to stop in and buy that lucky rod and 15% OFF dosen’t hurt either….  John Yac

Things have slowed down a bit from the last two days but bluefish and striped bass are still being taken. Metal and poppers always get the attention of feeding blues while bass can’t pass up a well presented clam or a chunk of bunker.

Bluefish!! Bluefish!! Bluefish!! is the cry you will hear from Manasquan Inlet to Island Beach State Park. The blues have crashed our beaches and inlets and are taking just about anything that swims by. They range from 3 lbs to the. mid teens and are putting bends in rods like we haven’t seen in a while. Striped bass have taken a back seat in our area but not for long, more and more pods of bait have been spotted in close and where the bait is you will find the fish. Have a rod set up for snagging while fishing the beach, you never know. The shop as of tomorrow morning May 14th will be open at 6 AM and will open 7 days a week now that our roads are finely completed! In honor of this long awaited event we will be holding a supper rod sale 15% OFF on all St Croix rods and custom rods in stock… John Yac

Happy Mother’s Day! Things are popping along our beaches, pods of bunker were spotted this morning out front and small blues in the 2-4 lb range have taken front stage. Bass are still taking clams and cut bunker while blow fish are nibbling on bits of worms and fishbites… John Yac
