The first weekend in June was some of the best fluke fishing we had in a while. On Friday morning, I did a quick solo trip on the FishHawk and got a hand full of shorts and one 18”. Friday afternoon my friend Sal and I went back out and had 3 keepers between 17.5” and 20”. On Saturday my charter of 6 had 8 keepers with 6 of them being over 18”. My dad was out Saturday in his boat, the No Shorts, and caught his limit as well. If you are thinking about booking a trip, please reach out now. My weekends in June and July are getting booked up. The best way to get in touch is to give me a call at 201-774-7444
This weekend the weather improved and looks like we will have great weather the rest of May. This weekend my dad, brother, grandfather, and I got out for a quick trip Saturday morning. My dad caught a 17.5” fluke, which is now considered a keeper with the new regulations. My grandfather had one short. Stripers are still being caught from the surf and expect them to be around till the being of June. Fluke fishing has been good in the back bay and is only going to get better as the water warms. I am booking up quickly and have the following days available for either and beach guide or a charter 23rd-26th 28th-31st of May. If you are interested in booking a trip, give me a call @ 201-774-7444
This weekend we saw the first push of bass along the beaches of LBI. The bite picked up Saturday afternoon right around high tide. Jingles Bait and Tackle reported multiple fish over 38” and had a 33” weighted in. I fished Saturday morning from 10:00-11:30 and caught a very small striper and my dad had one around 20" Then we fished in the afternoon 2:30-5:00 pm and had a 28” & 36”. On Sunday the bass were still around with fish of all sizes caught. I fished from 2:00- 4:15 pm and caught a 47” and 10 minutes later my friend Joe caught a 23”. All bass were caught on clam and fishing high tide seemed the be producing most of the bass this weekend. With the water just about 50 degrees, we still have the whole month of May to Fish! If you are interested in learning how to striper fish from the surf or want to catch a fish of a lifetime, give me a call, or send me an email to discuss booking a surfcasting guide.
