Fishing Reports

Short bass hitting clams early yesterday morning off the surf for a couple of our customers. Small blues hitting bunker chunks and mullet in a few spots. Fluke in the IBSP wash hitting bucktails tipped with Gulp. Short bass by the bridge last night along with some 2-3 pound blues. Brian Lindner had a good day in the bay picking up 3 keeper fluke, 15 blues and a 17 inch weakfish that hit a Spro Bucktail tipped with an Otter Tail. Crabbing on both sides of the river is picking up for those putting there time in. We have everything you need at both shops to help you enjoy your day so stop in on your way out.

A few short bass and cocktail size blues off the surf yesterday hitting bunker chunks, mullet and clams for the bait and waiters. Fluke hitting buktails tipped with Gulp "with a teaser" and also Kettle Creek shads. Some kingfish in the area so if you want to gear down with small pieces of clam or fishbites that's another option. Sharks and some rays at night so watch your rods. Fluke in the back bay in between the BB and BI bouy and closer to the inlet. Mostly shorts hitting killies, squid and spearing combos along with bucktails tipped with Gulp. Short bass and small blues by the bridge hitting Kettle Creek swim shads and small swimmers like the Rapala X-Raps (Glass Ghost). Small blues on both sides of the Toms River last night hitting swimmers and poppers in a couple spots. Crabbing is improving so put your time in if you can. We have fresh clams, fresh bunker, live eels, killies and an assortment of frozen baits so stop in and pick up what you need at either shop on your way out.

Brian Lindner just picked up a nice 17 inch weakfish by the inlet on a Spro bucktail tipped with a white Otter Tail.

Small blues off the surf hitting bunker chunks and mullet the last couple of days for a few bait and waiters. Short fluke in the wash for those targeting them with bucktails tipped with Gulp. Heard of a couple 17 plus inch fluke for a couple guys taking advantage of the 2 fish at 16 inches on IBSP. Rays and sharks at night hitting bunker and mackerel. Still short bass hanging by th bridge hitting swim shads and small swimmers. 2-3 pound blues roaming the Ocean Gate and Island Heights side of the Toms River the last 2 nights at dusk and after dark. The crab report has picked up as well from both sides of the river. One of our customers picked up 2 1/2 dozen in the Island Heights area yesterday. We have fresh bunker, killies and live eels in stock as well as all the frozen baits needed for fishing and crabbing.
