Once again mother nature decides to test our patience with wind and rain. The next couple of days do not look to be favorable. Hopefully anglers can sneak in a few hours of fishing in between the gusts of wind and the pop-up showers. The canal is still producing good numbers of flounder, although you will need to still deal with shorts in order to catch a good one. Some croaker have started to show up in the canal. We are hearing some of them have been up to 10”. The slot stripers are still around, remember the slot size is 20” to 25” in order to keep them. The soft plastics as well as good ole fashioned eels seem to be doing the trick.
At the outer wall and the ice breakers there are trigger fish and sheepshead waiting for the brave anglers to hook up and catch em up….. there are some croaker and sea trout as well.
The catch and release shark fishing is still going very well in the Delaware bay as well as by the walls and ice breakers.
The offshore bite was good before the blow. Bluefin, yellowfin tuna as well as dolphin have been caught at the inshore lumps. Massey’s, the hotdog, and the hambone have turned up decent catches when the fish were chomping. We are also getting reports that B-buoy has seen some flounder being caught there as well as dolphin. The old grounds have been producing some nice flounder catches when the weather permits boats to get out there.
Stop by and see us at the shop and check out our amazing selection of rods, reels, tackle, and clothing. We also carry cold drinks, ice, sun tan lotion, and a variety of gifts for men, women and children.
