So here we are in the start of the fishing season. Because of weather it is 2 to 3 weeks behind right now. We loaded up on all the bait you will need, such as medium and large shiners, fathead minnows, all types of worms and some baits to fish the river. Don't worry the crayfish and other saltwater baits will be in stock soon. As we move the store forward, we are doing a bit of a revamp of just what we carry. Now that i been at this location for a year and a half I know what I need here. Boy let me tell you we only moved a few miles and it did change what the customers want here. So please bear with us as we get things sorted out some. We are looking at maybe getting more kinds of bait in the store. If you have any suggestions please let us know and maybe we will add it. We had a nice article about us in The Trenton Times last Friday and I thought it is nice how they are doing that for small local businesses. So go out and enjoy a day of fishing and may you have tight lines and we hope you catch that big one.

Surf, Boat, & Jetty Report:

5/26/2015
8:20AM
Water temp this sunny warm morning is 59.9. Look out because someone has turned on that summer weather switch. Going to start getting hot today. Yesterday was another slower day as the fish were playing the come in and then disappear. You had to be there when they were there. Blues and stripers is what was being caught off of most beaches and jetties. Blues were 3 to 10lbs with some 20lbers thrown in as well. Stripers were mostly dinner sized but some 20+lbers were caught from some spots. fluke are being caught off the wall in Pt. Pleasant and in the Shark River Inlet. Let's get to those reports:
Brigantine: stripers, blues
LBI: stripers, blues, few fluke
IBSP: stripers, blues, few fluke
Seaside: stripers, blues
Ortley Beach: stripers, blues
Lavallette: stripers, blues
Ocean Beach: stripers, blues
Mantoloking: stripers, blues
Bay Head: stripers, blues
Pt. Pleasant: stripers, blues, blues, fluke off the wall
Shark River Inlet: stripers, blues, fluke
Monmouth Beach: stripers, blues
Jetties: stripers, blues

Boaters had little luck with stripers yesterday. Only a handful were reported being caught and they had to really work for them. Most switched over to fish blues and had good luck with those. Party boats also were fishing blues and boated a bunch of them. A bit smaller but still in the 5 to 17lb class. Boats fishing fluke had a hard time getting a good drift with the wind but still caught some fluke. It is still pretty slow for fluke and you have to weed through the shorts. It is only going to get better as the season goes on.

We want to thank all our veterans past and present for serving our country to keep us with the freedoms we have. We also wish everyone a safe, fun, and tight lines Memorial Day.

Water temp this cloudy/sunny morning is 61.9. Slow but steady fishing yesterday. Stripers, blues, a few drum, some dogfish and sea robins were being caught. I did have reports of a couple of 30lb stripers being caught but a lot were dinner sized which isn't bad either. Clams or bunker was the ticket. Kayaks are having better luck with the stripers then those fishing the beaches. Most of the blues were in the 3 to 6lb range but some 10+lbs one were also being caught. Finger mullet was the ticket, but other baits were working. Metals and poppers were catching as well but not that good. The drum were caught on clams. Fluke are being caught out of and around the inlets on bucktails or fluke rigs tipped with GULP!, squid, mackerel, bunker, and other baits. Let's get to those reports:
Brigantine: stripers, blues, some drum
LBI: stripers, blues
IBSP: stripers, blues
Seaside: stripers, blues
Ortley Beach: stripers, blues
Lavallette: stripers, blues
Ocean Beach: stripers, blues
Mantoloking: stripers, blues
Bay Head: stripers, blues
Pt. Pleasant: stripers, blues, blues, fluke off the wall
Shark River Inlet: stripers, blues, fluke
Monmouth Beach: stripers, blues
Jetties: stripers, blues

Boaters didn't do so good with stripers yesterday. It could have been the wind change or maybe they are just full. I was told snag n drop or trolling only produced a few stripers. Most boats then changed to blues and boated a whole bunch of them. Party boats fishing stripers and blues had luck with the blues but not the stripers. Party boats and private boats fishing fluke had not so good luck yesterday. Water was a bit cooler and then the south wind came up and it just slowed the bite. However a few keepers were caught but it was weeding through the shorts to get them. No hot bait have been reported it seems to be what ever they want right now.

We want to thank all our veterans past and present for serving our country to keep us with the freedoms we have. We also wish everyone a safe funny and tight lines Memorial weekend.

Water temp this sunny cool morning but temps going into the 80's later in the day is 60.3. Striper fishing from the beaches slowed a bit but the stripers that were caught was much bigger yesterday. The Brigantine area once again had the bigger stripers. Most caught from there was 20+lbers. Also a bunch of shorts were caught as well. The bluefish are still around with most being in the 5 to 12lb range. Drum and weakfish round out what is being caught from the beaches. Let's get to those reports:
Brigantine: stripers, blues, some drum
LBI: stripers, blues, few drum
IBSP: stripers, blues, some drum
Seaside: stripers, blues, some drum
Ortley Beach: stripers, blues
Lavallette: stripers, blues
Ocean Beach: stripers, blues
Mantoloking: stripers, blues
Bay Head: stripers, blues
Pt. Pleasant: stripers, blues, blues off the wall
Shark River Inlet: stripers, blues
Monmouth Beach: stripers, blues
Jetties: stripers, blues

Private and charter boats did doing really good with stripers until the wind changed and then it slowed. Did have reports of some 40+lbers being caught off of IBSP. Snag n drop was working until that wind change and then trolling bunker spoon was better. Most trolled in fifty to sixty-five feet of water but some had luck closer to the beaches in thirty foot of water. Boat out fishing fluke had some luck yesterday but still have to weed through the throw backs. Bucktailing was the ticket yesterday with dragging bait a far off second. Still early to be out in the ocean for fluke, but keeper are being caught so that is a good sign of things to come.

5/23/2015
8:10AM
We want to thank all our veterans past and present for serving our country to keep us with the freedoms we have. We also wish everyone a safe funny and tight lines Memorial weekend.

Water temp this sunny cool morning is 59.2. Don't forget summer flounder/fluke is now open. It is a 5 fish at 18 inch daily limit. IBSP is a special zone just like it was last year with a daily bag limit of 2 fish at 16 inches minimum. Once again stripers in the 10 to 25+lb class were caught from a bunch of beaches. Clams is the ticket right now but bunker, poppers, and swimming plugs are working as well. Blues hit the beaches with a nice blitz in IBSP and SSP yesterday. Also some drum and a few tide runner weakfish being caught as well. Weekend is here and it is looking good so let's get to those reports:
Brigantine: stripers, blues, some drum
LBI: stripers, blues, few drum
IBSP: stripers, blues, some drum
Seaside: stripers, blues, some drum
Ortley Beach: stripers, blues
Lavallette: stripers, blues
Ocean Beach: stripers, blues
Mantoloking: stripers, blues
Bay Head: stripers, blues
Pt. Pleasant: stripers, blues, blues off the wall
Shark River Inlet: stripers, blues
Monmouth Beach: stripers, blues
Jetties: stripers, blues

Private and charter boats are doing really good with stripers now if you stay away from where the bluefish are. They are now bunched up. Snag n drop is the way to go but trolling bunker spoons is also working pretty good as well. AC to IBSP seems to be the place to be right now. Party boats once again was into the bluefish but not as good as it has been. Some fished pretty close to shore while others went further off to catch them. Not much word about stripers from these boats. Boats fishing fluke did ok but not gang busters. Most pool winners were in the 4 to 7lb range. You had to weed through the shorts to get those keepers. Don't worry it will only get better as the season goes on.

5/22/2015
UPDATE 9:35AM
Bluefish blitz going on right now on the the north end of IBSP and headed towards South Seaside Park. Also some reports of keeper stripers being caught this morning from the beaches. Stop reading reports and get out there. Some of the best fishing there has been in years.

7:55AM
Water temp this sunny cool morning is 58.6. WOW Brigantine lit up once again for stripers from boat and beach. A bunch of reports of 20 to 40+lb stripers being caught. AC and Brigantine was the places to be for some good striper fishing. Other beaches did have keeper stripers being caught as well, but just not the number of bigger ones. The bite went right into the night as well. Bunker and swimming plugs are working but it seems clams have been the ticket for the bigger stripers right now from the beaches. Also blues in the 5 to 7lb range are still being caught of the beaches along with some drum and weakfish as well. Don't forget summer flounder/fluke is now open. It is a 5 fish at 18 inch daily limit. IBSP is a special zone just like it was last year with a daily bag limit of 2 fish at 16 inches minimum. Weekend is looking great and you just need to be fishing. Let's get to those reports:
Brigantine: stripers, blues, some drum
LBI: stripers, blues, few drum
IBSP: stripers, blues, some drum
Seaside: stripers, blues, some drum
Ortley Beach: stripers, blues
Lavallette: stripers, blues

Shark River Inlet: stripers, blues
Monmouth Beach: stripers, blues
Jetties: stripers, blues

Reports of 20 to 40+lb stripers being caught from the AC area all the up to off the IBSP area. Live bunker using snag n drop is working best with trolling bunker spoons a close second. Party boats caught bluefish and some striper yesterday. Bottom boats fishing their last day had some cod, pollock, and ling. Those boats will now be fishing fluke as of today.

5/21/2015
UPDATE 8:10AM
Already had a couple of reports that a couple 20lb stripers have been caught from Brigantine and IBSP area on clams this morning. Also some smaller keepers are being caught as well. This is not going to last so you better get out there.

7:50AM
Water temp this sunny cool morning is 59.0. One word WOW. Lots of reports of 20 to 40+lb stripers being caught off the beaches yesterday. AC all the way up to IBSP with Brigantine once again being the best place to catch those big cows. So there is a nice school of bigger stripers that has moved in. Clams is the ticket, but bunker and swimming plugs are working. Some blues are still being caught but not in big numbers now and much smaller. Most are now in the 3 to 7lb range, but some bigger ones are still mixed in. Some nice drum on clams are being caught in some places as well. You better get off that couch and go fishing now! Let's get to those reports:
Brigantine: stripers, blues, some drum
LBI: stripers, blues, few drum
IBSP: stripers, blues, some drum
Seaside: stripers, blues, some drum
Ortley Beach: stripers, blues
Lavallette: stripers, blues

Mantoloking: stripers, blues
Bay Head: stripers, blues
Pt. Pleasant: stripers, blues, blues off the wall
Shark River Inlet: stripers, blues
Monmouth Beach: stripers, blues
Jetties: stripers, blues

Reports of 20 to 40+lb stripers being caught from the AC area all the up to off the IBSP area. Live bunker is working best with trolling bunker spoons a close second. Party boats were fishing for the blues again. Most had good luck. I didn't hear of any stripers being caught by them. Bottom boats will be fishing cod and ling for their last time today and will be fishing summer flounder/fluke starting tomorrow when the season open.

5/20/2015
UPDATE 10:30AM
Been talking to a few people after I wrote the reports this morning. It seems bigger stripers have moved into the AC to IBSP area. A bunch of 20 to 30+lb stripers were being caught. Most have been caught on bunker or clams but a few are being caught on swimming plugs and poppers. Also blues are being caught but there are now in the 5lb class. So you better get there while you can.

7:55AM
Water temp this sunny cooler morning is 58.8. Summer flounder/fluke season opens this Friday May 22. IBSP is a special zone just like it was last year with a daily bag limit of 2 fish at 16 inches minimum. We have squid in stock. Some good fishing for stripers in Brigantine. Had reports of some nice sized ones being caught along with some nice drum. Clams is the ticket there. Also had reports of other beaches producing stripers, blues, and drum as well. It seems the striper and drum bite has been mainly clams but some stripers are being caught on bunker, swimming plugs, and poppers. The blues have been mainly on meat but poppers and metals are working. If you are not out fishing now you might as well just give it up. Let's get to those reports:
Brigantine: stripers, blues, some drum
LBI: stripers, blues, few drum
IBSP: stripers, blues, some drum
Seaside: stripers, blues, some drum
Ortley Beach: stripers, blues
Lavallette: stripers, blues

Jetties: stripers, blues

Once the fog burned off boats did get out. Had reports of 20 to 40+lb stripers being caught off of IBSP. Most are when trolling bunker spoons but some on bait and swimming plugs. Party boats went for the blues again and found plenty to be caught in the 10 to 17lb range. No word from any boats fishing bottom. Bottom boats will be fishing cod and ling for their last day tomorrow as of Friday they will be fishing summer flounder/fluke.

Bay Report:

5/26/2015
Flounder/fluke fishing is in full swing now. Had a bunch of reports from boats, kayaks, people wading out, and and even people fishing the banks, docks, and bulkheads. 2 to 3 fluke is the norm right now but some have gotten their limit as well. They are going in the 2 to 6lb range right with a couple reports of some going up to 8lbs. No hot spots but reports came from Absecon Bay, Great Bay around the clam stakes, the creeks on Three Bridges Road, Little Egg Inlet, Barnegat Bay around the BI and BB buoys, Oyster cheek channel, Double Creek channel, and Shark River Inlet. All you need to be is out fishing. Also had reports of bluefish, weakfish, blowfish, and dogfish being caught. Crabbing is slowing right now because a shed is coming soon.

5/25/2015
Flounder/fluke fish is going pretty good. Some places it got hard to fish later in the day because of the wind. Reports of fluke up to 6lbs were caught. Most are smaller but people are at least getting 2 or 3 keepers right now. No hot spots but you can give Absecon Bay, Great Bay around the clam stakes, The creeks on Three Bridges Road, Little Egg Inlet, Grassy Channel, Barnegat Bay around the BI and BB buoys Oyster cheek channel or Double Creek channel, or Shark River Inlet a try. Only thing I will say is watch the channels in some places as they have filled with some sand and it is easy to ground your boat. Dredging really needs to be done. Also had reports of bluefish, weakfish, blowfish, and some dogfish as well. It is looking to be a really good fishing summer this year so far. Crabbing is about the same but will slow because of the shed that is coming. About a dozen is the norm for the docks and bulkheads and about half a bushel for boaters but they have to work for them.

5/24/2015
What can I say but it is all about the fluke. A bit windy but there be fluke in those bays. Reports of fluke up to 8lbs came in yesterday. GULP!, squid, bunker, and some other baits are all working. Just go to your favourite early season spot and you will most likely catch some fluke. I really can't say of any hot spots. You should give Absecon Bay, Great Bay around the clam stakes, Little Egg Inlet, Grassy Channel, Barnegat Bay around the BI and BB buoys Oyster cheek channel or Double Creek channel, or Shark River Inlet a try as they all are producing fluke. Did have a few reports of bluefish being caught along with some blowfish and a couple of weakfish as well.

5/23/2015
So here we go with our first fluke report of the year. Further south was the place to be. Absecon Bay, Great Bay, Little Egg Inlet, Grassy Channel, and the southern part of Barnegat Bay did pretty good yesterday. Some even reported getting limits. Some nice sized fluke with most being in the 3 to 7lb range were being caught. GULP!, squid, bunker, and some other baits are working. Looks like so far it is going to be a good summer flounder/fluke season. Blues, some stripers, weakfish, and some blowfish rounded out the catches from the bays. Looking like a good fishing weekend.

5/22/2015
On your marks, get set, GO. And they are off and running for the 2015 summer flounder/fluke season. It is 5 fish at 18 inch daily limit. Some blues and stripers are still being caught from the bays. Along with a few weakfish and I had a report that a few blowfish have been caught as well. The rain did keep the reports down some yesterday but look out for the weekend as I know a ton who will be fluke fishing.

5/21/2015
Not too many reports form the bays as everyone is out front fishing the beaches or in a boat on the ocean now. Still had a few reports from the bays that blues and stripers are being caught. It is blues during the day and stripers at night. Don't forget that summer flounder/fluke season opens tomorrow Friday May 22. 5 fish at 18 inch daily limit. We do have squid in stock. It is looking like it could be a very good opening day. I have had reports of people catching them while fishing for other types of fish. A friend told me he was fishing and caught 18 fluke and 6 would have been keepers with one going 26 inches. Had a few reports of some tide runner weakfish being caught as well. Looks like you just need to be out there fishing.

5/20/2015
After the fog burned off people did get out on the bays. They remain the same as far as reports go. Absecon Bay, Great Bay, Little Egg Inlet, Grassy Channel, around the mouth of Barnegat Inlet and Manasquan Inlet all had some bluefish action. Bunker chunks, clams, poppers, metals, jigging, swimming plugs, and bucktails are all working. A few stripers were caught on clams and swimming plugs but mostly they are shorts. Summer flounder/fluke are being caught out of Absecon Bay, Great Bay, and some places in Barnegat Bay. Too bad these are going back in the water because a few have been really good sized. Talking to a lot of people they can not wait until Friday when the season opens. We do now have squid in stock. Crabbing is ok but a lot of smaller ones to weed through.

5/26/2015
Another nice day but a lot of people were at cookouts or doing other things as not as many were fishing yesterday. Reports once again came from all over the place. Lake Assunpink, Stone Tavern, Rising Sun, AMC, Miry Run, and Lake Mercer had bass, crappie, pickerel, sunnies, catfish, perch, and catfish being caught. RT 130 dam had Bass, crappie, pickerel, sunnies, catfish, perch, catfish, suckers, and cheek chubs caught. Town Center had bass, sunnies, and catfish caught. Other reports had bass, crappie, pickerel, sunnies, catfish, perch, catfish, suckers, cheek chubs, and some carp caught. Reports about are still coming in and them seem to be pretty good. The norm is 2 to 4 trout with some full stingers still being reported. Not many reports from the Delaware River. I think because of jet skies and boat traffic most didn't fish. Did have some reports of large and small mouth and catfish. Being caught.

5/25/2015
Nice day but I guess a lot was having cookouts or they went to the beach. Going to be a bit warmer today, but it still is looking like a great day to be fishing. Did have a lot of reports come in yesterday from a lot of places. I will list some but not all. Lake Assunpink, Stone Tavern, Rising Sun, AMC, Miry Run, and Lake Mercer had bass, crappie, pickerel, sunnies, catfish, perch, and catfish being caught. RT 130 dam had Bass, crappie, pickerel, sunnies, catfish, perch, catfish, suckers, and cheek chubs caught. Town Center had bass, sunnies, and catfish caught. Other places had bass, crappie, pickerel, sunnies, catfish, perch, catfish, suckers, cheek chubs, and some carp caught. Trout fishing is still going good. Most place trout are still being caught but a lot of people are now fishing the feeder canal because that is where the most trout were stocked. Delaware River reports were a bit slow because most are out just having fun this weekend and not fish. Also with all the boat and jet skies out there in places it is hard to fish. Still had reports of some small stripers, catfish, large and small mouth bass, and some walleye being caught.

5/24/2015
What a day it was yesterday. However it was a bit windy. This morning is nice and it is going to be in the 80's today. A lot of people out fishing yesterday. Had a ton of reports come in as well. Just to many places to list so we will just tell you what was caught and you can go to the place you like and go fishing. Bass, crappie, pickerel, sunnies, catfish, perch, catfish, suckers, cheek chubs, and some carp were caught. As for trout I had some good reports that a bunch of full stringer were caught by many while other had 2 to 4 trout caught. I can not tell you what is working best as it seems to be just about anything that people are using. Delaware River reports that some small stripers, catfish, large and small mouth bass, and some walleye are being caught.

5/23/2015
Nice day but a bit windy. Seems the wind kept some home while other went away for the holiday weekend. So reports were somewhat light but still a bunch out fishing. People fishing trout are still doing pretty good. Norm right now is 2 to 4 but full stringers are still being caught. Even places that have not bee stocked in a couple of weeks are still doing good. Had reports from Lake Assunpink, Stone Tavern, Rising Sun, AMC, Miry Run, and Lake Mercer that bass are being caught but not in big numbers. Some of those places the bass are on the nests. Also along with the bass, crappie, pickerel, sunnies, catfish, perch, catfish, and some carp were caught. Lake Mercer also had some musky caught as well. RT 130 dam had a few trout, some bass, a few catfish, and a bunch of perch caught. Town Center had bass, sunnies, and catfish being caught. Not many fishing the Delaware River unless it was from the bank because of the wind. Those fishing did catch some small stripers, catfish, large and small mouth bass, and some walleye.

5/22/2015
Not many fishing so not many reports. Cliff reports from Lake Assunpink "Bass really heated up today (5/21). Landed eight 2 to 3lbers in 3 hours. From the looks of the females, they are smack dab in middle of spawn." If so then we are still 2 to 3 weeks behind where we should be for this time of year. Also had some reports of sunnies, crappie, and catfish being Caught in places as well. Looks like it is going to be a good weekend to be fishing.

5/21/2015
Very nice day yesterday to be fishing. Reports are saying that the bass fishing is getting better everyday now. Had reports of bass, sunnies, crappie, pickerel, trout, perch, catfish, and some carp being caught. Of course some places are better then others. Also some places are already getting some what weeded up. Looks like it is about time to start fishing weedless hooks or things that can get through the weeds. Today is the last of the trout stocking. The only place getting stocked is the feeder canal along RT 29. a bit over 1,400 will be stock and that brings the number to just shy of 13,000 trout stock in that location. I am still getting good reports from other places as well. A lot are still getting full stringers. Had reports out of the Delaware River that small stripers, catfish, perch, large and small mouth bass, and some walleye are being caught.

5/20/2015
Not too many fishing yesterday so the report are light once again. Bass, sunnies, crappie, pickerel, trout, perch, and catfish were being caught. The bass fishing is slowing improving and should be going good very soon. I was told by a few that they can still see bass on the nests in some places. Not much being reported from the Delaware River yesterday. I only had reports from bank fisherman.They reported some small stripers and catfish and that is about it. Looks like we have great weather until Monday so looks like you should be fishing.
