Now that we’ve got all the rain we needed out of the way, let’s start fishing and have a great rest of the summer. Despite the storms, reports are still really good if not improved since.
The fluke bite in local waters has been good still a lot of shorts but some really nice fish mixed in (7-8lb) a new batch of squid just moved in with plenty of other bait in the water to keep them satisfied. A trick while targeting fluke when the tide is slow or slack is to cast out, let your bucktail sink to the bottom, and then retrieve.
Fishing for black sea bass has picked up with larger fish moving inshore and scup fishing is excellent. Many customers having fun vertical jigging for sea bass with a teaser on top.
Striped bass fishing is still very good but as the water continues to warm the bite is better earlier in the morning or at night. Also try live eels in on deeper pieces of structure. The ponds have been coming alive on an incoming tide with stripers coming airborne after sand eels.
Offshore reports have been very good with bluefin, and yellowfin tuna being caught south of the island. Most of the action has been on the troll but a few fish are being caught jigging.
