Fishing Report

Rain gear plus day for sure! It just might be a good day go over your surf gear. Re-organize that plug bag and sharpen or change out those hooks that look less then perfect. Don’t forget to check all split rings, snaps and retie all knots. So the next time you step onto the beach you will be more than ready to do battle. Sharking at night remains good. Still some fluke in the surf, thou finding them is the real challenge. Crabs and snapper blues remain the bay attractions… John Yac

Sharking in IBSP at night is the only game in town right now. More and more brown sharks are taking cut bunker and mackerel on the night tides. If you never tried this type of fishing, you should. There is just a couple of requirements before you attempt this. A heavy surf outfit spinning or conventional, large strong hooks 10/0 plus on sturdy wire leaders, a good size chunk of bait of your choice and last but far from least a well secured sand spike. Crabbing in the bay and back waters is good with a fair amount 5″ plus crabs being taken. Snapper blues are still keeping the kids busy… John Yac

Rays continue to keep bait guys busy in the surf. These large winged beauties will put line, reel and rod to the test. Some fishermen call them pests and some just enjoy the fight. Fluke fishing in the surf is solid on buck tail jigs tipped with gulp, the hard part is locating the fish but once you find them, fish on! Sharking on the night tides continues with some nights producing better than others. Snappers along with crabs are plentiful in the bay… John Yac

Fishing Report

The most under rated pan fish in now in abundance in the surf and in the back bays. What am I talking about? Nice size snapper blues! Yes these great eating fish will hit just about any small reflective metal along with spearing, small strips of squid or clam. With their presents in the surf, larger fluke should be hot on there heels. We will see… John Yac

Weather’s HOT fishing’s NOT. Sorry for such a downer of an opening, but it is what it is. Surf fishing in our area seems to be on hold for the most part, and were hoping upon hope that the upcoming cold front will break this oppressive weather and kick start the surf action a bit… John Yac

Fishing Report

Not much to report due to yesterday’s oppressive weather. With today’s better forecast the slow bluefish fluke pick in the surf should continue. The night time shark action remains good in IBSP. Crabbing in the bay is steady while small snapper blues are on the rise… John Yac

Fishing Report

If you are new to surf fishing and really never seen a cow nose ray up close with a 3 ft. plus wing span now is the time to check them out. IBSP yesterday at top of the tide had “rays on parade” from the wash to out passed the first wave, rays in singles, twos, and threes lazily flapped their wings as they moved south with the tide. Not the greatest thing for the surf fisherman but interesting to watch never the less. On the brighter note, sharking in the park after dark is doing well. Remember these Sand Tigers should be released unharmed ASAP for they are on the endangered species list… John Yac

Fishing Report

Pick, Pick, Pick is the cry of most of the surf fishermen I have spoken to the past couple of days. With small baits in the wash small blues and fluke seem to be interested at times. If your looking for a good bend in your rod this time of the year night time sharking is your only choice. The night tides are also bring large cow nose rays into the feeding zone. Crabbing remains good especially from the boats just a little south of us. But shore bound crabbers are still putting together decent catches, the only problem is weeding through all those shorts… John Yac

Fishing Report

More tolerable weather forecasted for the weekend should make surf fishing more attractive. It’s hard to get a good report on what’s happening with so few anglers. But just going by the time of year, fluke and small blues should be the one two punch right now during the daylight hours with shark fishing during the night tides. For those dyed in the wool bass hounds, night tides during July and even into the first week of August has seen some large bass on cut bunker. Crabbing remains good and more and more snappers are showing up daily… John Yac

Fishing Report

Keep your rain gear close by! Today will see showers on and off but the good news is on shore winds and high tide at mid day. These conditions could produce a good surf fishing day. Add to that a very few beach goers and the number one benefit is no flies!… John Yac
