Fishing Report

Judging by the amount of people that stopped by the dock yesterday to take advantage of this great weather and the ever improving crabbing only goes to show that summer is here! Fluke still dominate the catch along our surf while some blues and even a keeper bass are being taken here and there. The night time shark bite is starting up in the park. Small blues, fluke and now some blow fish are being taken in the bay in all the usual spots… John Yac

Fishing Report

Not much to talk about today except for the outstanding weather we have been enjoying. Even though the bite along our beaches has come to a crawl, fishing along our beaches is still the place to be. With a keeper bass or a blue fish being taken here and there and the fluke size in the surf getting smaller. Great time to take advantage of the new fluke regulations in Island Beach State Park (2) fish at 16″ caught from the surf only and must be checked in at a weigh station about a mile south of the gate before you leave. Small blues still roam the areas behind IBS and love taking those small popping plugs. Crabbing is improving daily with more and more keepers going home with happy crabbers… John Yac

One outstand surf fishing day after another, weather wise that is, and today will be no different. Fluke have been keeping fisherman busy along the surf, small blues are being taken in the bay behind IBS. Fluke fishing in the BB and BI buoy areas remains a steady pick. Crabbing out back off our dock and rental boats started to show some signs of improvement yesterday with some nice keepers going to crabbers who were willing to put in some time. Buck tail jigs tipped with ether gulp or squid are working on the fluke. While small poppers and small metals are doing the trick on the blues… John Yac

Fishing Report

Summer time surf fishing seems to be the mode we are in now, but the occasional striped bass making its presents known is keeping things interesting. Fluke fishing in the surf improves daily. Anglers should be taking advantage of the new (2) fluke at 16″ being allowed in Island Beach State Park, just remember to have the fish tagged at the check station located about 1 mile south of the entrance gate before leaving the park… John Yac

Fishing Report

The pick goes on! A few nice keeper bass were taken yesterday along with some tasty fluke in the areas of Island Beach State Park. The blue fish bite seems to have migrated into the bay with small to medium size fish being taken in the areas of Oster Creek and along the back side of IBSP. You also have a shot at some nice keeper fluke being taken in the same areas. Crabbing is stuck in slow mode with small catches going to those willing to put in some time…John Yac

Fishing Report

After a pretty productive spring run is seems we are getting into the summer hit or miss days in the surf. Fluke continue to put bends in anglers rods while blues and bass seem to be dropping off in our area. The bay still has a pick of small to medium size blues and fluke in the usual spots. Cut baits and clams still is the way to go in the surf, while small poppers, buck tail jigs and swimmers will sometimes produce in both areas. The crabbing is slow from our dock and rental boats, definitely not a early season blitz as we experienced last year… John Yac

Fishing Report

Fishing has been a up and down situation now that the spring run is coming to a close. Still some reports of medium to small size blues and keeper size bass being taken mostly on bait. Fluke fishing is getting into full swing now and brown sharks are roaming the surf at night. Crabbing has been up and down in the bay and small to medium size blues are still being caught while keeper fluke remain steady in the BB and BI buoy areas and just inside Barnegat Inlet….

Fishing Report

Today is going to be a perfect day for the beach, with the lack of weekend crowds finding your favorite hole shouldn’t be much of a problem. The problem will be finding the fish at home! Times like this you want to keep that bait fresh, fish with at least two rods and plug near by with a third. Fluke are still taking front stage with the occasional bass being caught along the surf line and if you try using smaller hooks and smaller baits you open up the possibility for blow fish or even king fish. Crabbing continues to improve out back and from our boats. The fluke bite in the bay has slowed some what both in numbers and in size… John Yac

Fishing Report

The great bass and blue fishing we have been enjoying for the past several weeks in the surf has slowed way down. There is still plenty of bait out there but with fewer fish chasing them. The numbers of fluke in the surf are on the rise, and with the new (2) fish at 16″ being allowed in Island Beach State Park putting some of those tasty fillets on the table has become somewhat easer. Remember just find the cuts and drop offs in the surf line, present your baits as naturally as possible, and success should follow. Gulp and squid are the two best baits for this type of fishing. Tip your buck tail jigs or fluke rigs with either of these two baits and give it a shot!… John Yac

Fishing Report

The blue fish and fluke have center stage along our beaches while some nice keeper bass pulse in and out of the mix. Cut bunker and clams remain the number one and two baits for the blues and bass and every now and then a nice size fluke will fall to a well presented bunker chunk. Buck tail jigs tipped with gulp or squid is the go to rig in the surf for fluke. The bay still has small blues taking poppers and metals and the boats are picking some nice fluke down by the BB and BI. Crabbing is improving daily along our docks and bulkheads… John Yac
