Not So Blue Moon
So far this storm has brought in big surf. The full moon has brought in big tide swings. This weekend it will be laying down and should give boat guys a chance to get out. Fluke fishing held up well last week with fish up to almost 9-pounds caught around 30-feet of water locally. Along with fluke, local anglers are doing well for black sea bass and scup. Striped bass are thick back in the salt ponds right now. Guys are doing well with live eels and the top water bite is starting to pick up as these fish become more active. The Breachway bite has been heating up especially on the outgoing tide at night. There are some bluefish starting to show up again as well. False Albacore arrived on the South Shore on Sunday and a lot of them. They were mostly feeding on peanut bunker. Should be plenty hanging around for this weekend. Tautog reports are starting to pick up a little with more keepers being caught but you still need to weed through a lot of interference fish. Tuna reports continue to be good with a mix of bluefin and good size yellows.
