Have to open up with crabbing today, for it has been off the charts as far as our rental boats are concerned. Check out our face book page for pictures of some outstanding catches. The dock is also doing well but no where’s near the rental boats. All the large catches are still on the west side of the bay in the area known as “good luck point”. Surf fishing remains the same for this time of year, fluke and blues are the daily mainstay and brown sharks still roam the surf line after dark… John Yac
PS: Remember NO boats till 7:30 AM and all boats must be back by 5:30 PM. Please plan your trip accordingly. Thanks!
Another great looking day today. Surf report remains consistent Fluke and blues by day with brown sharks at night. Crabbing in the bay is good but fishing has slowed down, small blues have all but disappeared. The fluke are mostly shorts with a few nice keepers mixed in. Blow fish have still yet to make their appearance and snappers are still on the smaller side… John Yac
PS: We still have customers some what confused about our boat rental times. We start letting the boats out at 7:30 AM and all must be in by 5:30 PM. Please plan your trip accordingly Thanks.
Small blues and small to keeper size fluke are keeping surf anglers busy through these summer months. Mullet for the blues and Gulp for the fluke are all you need to keep great tasting fillets on your table. Fall fishing is just around the corner so don’t wait to the last minute to get your gear ready. Break out those fall rods and lures and give them a few casts while on the beach, so when the time comes you will be ready. Crabbing remains good both from our dock and rental boats… John Yac
Crabbing remains hot while fluke along the surf grow larger! Yes our rental boats are still cashing in on some large catches of crab along the west side of the bay, and the dock is holding it’s own. Larger fluke in the 3 to 5 lb range have been finding their way to the local scales daily. Gulp seems to be the bait of choice but many tight lipped anglers say differently when you can pry something out of them. For the really large fish are usually taken on natural baits rather than artificial ones or at least a combination of both, some thing to keep in mind when out searching for fluke both along the surf or boat. A live killie and squid combination is only one of many natural baits the will definitely work… John Yac
PS: Our boats don’t start going out till 7:30 AM daily and all must be back by 5:30 PM, so please plan your trips accordingly. Thanks!
Fluke are gaining in size along our beaches. Small to medium size blues and now with a addition of snappers round out the surf report. Buck tail jigs tipped with gulp is still the top method of catching these larger fluke. Mullet, cut bunker, small poppers and metals all will work on the blues. If you never crabbed before now is the time to give it a try. Crabbing is excellent both from our dock and rental boats. Snappers will fill in your time between soaks of your pots and drop lines… John Yac
Not much has changed on the surf, small fluke and blues seems to be the only game right now and the methods for catching them also remain the same. Mullet and cut bunker for the blues, poppers and small metals will also work on these fish. Squid, spearing and live killies are some top bait favorites for the fluke. Small buck tails tipped with gulp or gulp fished alone on a 3-way rig will get these fluke to bite. Remember to take advantage of IBSP,s new 2 fluke at 16” to help put these great tasting fish on your table, just remember to check them in before you leave the park. Crabbing remains on fire on the west side of the bay and our dock catches are improving daily… John Yac
The heading today should be crabbing report. Our rental boats were hammering the crabs on the west side of the bay again yesterday. Catches of 1 to 2 buckets full (5 gal size) were coming in regularly. Crabbing from our dock has also improved with catches of 2 to 3 dozen crabs not un-common. The surf fishing scene remains the same, small to keeper size fluke and small to medium size blues remain the catch of the day. The bay is still producing keeper fluke mixed in with a bunch of shorts and snapper blues although on the smaller side seem to be all over… John Yac
Fishing remains a hit or miss affair off our beaches. There are blue fish and fluke feeding along the surf line, it’s just a matter or being at the right place at the right time. Keeping your baits fresh and checking them often is paramount this time of year. You want to be ready when the fish do decide to feed. Buck tail jigs, small metals and poppers will all produce under the right conditions. Fluke are still being caught in the BB and BI buoy areas but you have to weed through all the shorts. Still no word on blow fish in these areas, we are hoping to hear something soon. Crabbing remains good and snapper blues seem to be everywhere… John Yac
Small blue fish in the 2 to 5 lb range have found their way into the surf. Fluke are still providing dinner for the anglers willing to seek them out. As usual less fishing and bathing pressure now that the weekend is over. As far as bait goes for these two species of fish, squid spearing and killies will work well on the fluke. Cut bunker and mullet always is a good way to go for blues. Crabbing remains in high gear on the west side of the bay and snapper blues are gaining in size and range… John Yac
Real summertime report today. Fluke and small blues in the surf now and then throughout the day. Sharks and rays at night. The fluke bait of choice is gulp fished in many different ways, tipped on a buck tail jig, high low rig with a tipped buck tail for the lead and a plain gulp above, and the tried and true three way rig with a 28” to 30” snelled wide gap hook tipped with gulp and a sinker weight that allows the rig to move with the current and wave action. All of these will produce if fished correctly in the right locations. The small blues are taking cut bunker and mullet. Crabbing is super hot from the boats crabbing on the west side of the bay in the area known as good luck point…. John Yac
