Trigger fish and Sheepshead have moved in and are being caught both inshore near the TI Bridge as well as off shore at the reef systems. Most are being caught using clam, green crabs or sand fleas. We weighed in the biggest Sheepshead I have personally seen at just over 9 pounds!
Fluke fishing in the bay is really slow however the best place to be is off shore at the wreck & reef areas. There are definately bigger fish out there. The slot limit seams to be working for most anglers this year. Live minnows, Berkley Gulp or strips of Mackerel are your best baits.
Bluefish are here and there throughout the bay and in the surf. These fish can be caught on just about anything however Mullet for bait or any fish shaped metal such as Hogy's Epoxy Jigs which have been working well.
The striped bass fishing is really best either early morning or after dark. They are in the bay however the surf has been productive in the morning. Most are being caught on Bloodworms, clam or bunker. While others can be caught using swimming lures both plastic and hard baits.
Tog - PLEASE KEEP IN MIND that Tog is now closes until August 1st.
Weakfish can still be found in the bay and can be caught on plastics however bloodworms will also work here.
WE ALSO HAVE LIVE SAND FLEAS BACK IN STOCK!
