Wednesday 4/10

Perfect conditions today. Temps are in the 60’s with westerly winds. Got a couple reports yesterday from the bay and surf. Not a ton of guys out yesterday. I expect to see a lot more today with the nicer weather. We have Fresh Bunker, Fresh Clams, and Blood Worms!

Tuesday 4/9 Nice Bay Bass.

We had a nice Bass weighed in by Ryan Stack from the bay Monday. The fish was 10.80 LBS and it hit a soft plastic. We received more reports from the surf. One of our regulars caught and released 3 small bass on kettle creek swing shads. We also had other customers come in and report small bass on bait. Things are definitely starting to pick up. If the weather holds maybe we’ll have a traditional April??

We got in more Scabelly Gliders Monday. There is still some nice ones left. Stop in before they’re all gone! We also got in our 1st delivery of Nomad Lures. The feedback on these lures has been through the roof. Come check them out the next time you’re in. We also got in a tractor trailer full of fill-in items! The shops full and more is coming. We’re keeping Grumpy busy!

Open 430am-10pm EVERYDAY!

Monday 4/8 More bass being reported on the Surf…

More surf bass are being reported. Good sign. Little mix of both bait and artificials. If you’re going to fish artificials try Shads, Small metals or SP’s. See what works! Water temps out front are climbing up… Plenty of Fresh Bait in stock!


Sunday 4/7 NEW HOURS!

Weather was gorgeous on Saturday. Sent a good amount of people out and we did get a couple reports from the surf. Small Bass mostly on bait. It’s a start! Back bay is still producing fish. Raritan bay is heating up and the boats are still doing well off long branch with nice bass. Another nice day on tap for Sunday.

We have all the Fresh Bait you need! Fresh Clams, Fresh Bunker, and Bloodworms.

Don’t forget.. We’re now on our Full Time Hours of 430am-10pm EVERYDAY!!

Friday 4/5 FRESH CLAMS in Stock! 1st report from Surf.

Lots to talk about! Fresh Clams are now in stock. We’re working on getting Fresh Bunker Friday. We did get our first report from the surf. One of our regulars caught a short on a plug and he also reported some bunker out of casting distance down in IBSP. There was a couple video’s circulating on the Facebook yesterday from one of the belmar party boats of some insane bass fishing about 1/2 mile off long branch. The fish were nice size too. The migration is starting. We expect to hear more things on the surf this weekend with the nice weather. We’ll be switching to our FULL TIME hours this Saturday. Our hours will be 430am-10pm EVERYDAY! We have plenty of Fresh Clams, Salted Clams, Bloodworms, and all the frozen bait you need. Should have Fresh Bunker as well! 

We got in 2 boxes of St. Croix Surf and Boats Rods. Everything in stock! We also added in Zman plastics.


Few guys trying each day on the surf but no reports have come in yet… Back bay is a different story lots of small bass and a few keeper size fish are in the mix. Bloodworms have been working very well and a few guys have been doing well on plugs especially in the Toms River. We have some adult bunker moving in to the bay now which is great news.

Our plan is to load up on Fresh Bait this weekend. Both Fresh Clams in the Shell and Fresh Bunker! We’ll also be switching to our Full-time hours on Saturday 4/6! Our hours will be 430am-10pm EVERYDAY!! We hope to see everyone this weekend.

Saturday 3/30

Not a ton of reports came in Friday but we did get good reports from the back bay on Thursday. Our regular Mike DiSalvo caught a beautiful 35″ bass in the back bay and released 2 other keeper size fish (Photo is on our social media pages). All the fish were caught on bait. We got a nice delivery of beautiful Bloodworms Friday and we have plenty of Salted Clams. Nothing reported from out front YET but we have some people trying so I expect to hear something soon. Our hours will be 7am-7pm until Early April. This weekend we’ll be here even earlier. If you see the lights on come on in!

Thursday 3/28

March is starting to wind down with April right around the corner. Back bay fishing remains pretty good. Lots of small bass with a decent pick of Winter Flounder. Weather looks very good this weekend with highs in the 60’s and 70’s. We got in more Worms Wednesday with more coming. I expect to have Fresh Clams the first week of April and thats when I expect to switch to our Full-Time Hours of 430am-10pm EVERYDAY. We’ll keep everyone updated on that.

We did get a few orders in the past couple days. We now carry Greenhead baits! These plastics are a perfect match for the S&S Bucktails we carry. Awesome action and very durable. We also got in the NEW Tony Maja Mojo Rods. These rods are going to be perfect for trolling mojo’s. We also got in the full line-up of Van Staal Jigging rods. These rods are beautiful and are perfect for Tuna jigging but we also have a lighter model that will be very popular for inshore bass fishing on the boat. If you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask!

Open 7am-7pm! Longer Hours start 1st week of APRIL!

Sunday 3/24

We had some wind Saturday and that kept most home but the wind is starting to drop now and Sunday looks beautiful. I did have a couple guys come in during the evening and report a couple keeper flounder and small bass on worms in the bay. Like I said, Sundays weather looks much better and I expect to hear some things especially in the bay. We have plenty of NICE Blood Worms, Salted Clams, and Frozen Bait!

Saturday 3/23

Not many anglers out in the bay Friday due to the wind so we really didn’t hear much. Weather doesn’t look terrible Saturday. Sunday is definitely going to be the better day with highs in the 60’s! We’re loaded up on NICE Bloodworms and Salted Clams along with all the frozen bait you need. Still waiting for our first report from the surf. Who will it be?? Water temps out front are in the low to mid 40’s. If you give it a try use small pieces of bait. A couple years ago off the surf we had a decent bite late March on Bloodworms and small pieces of clams.

Guess what? More SPRING Orders arrived! Proline & Frogg Togg Waders (All our waders range from $69.99-$199.99), Tica Rods, Xtra Tuff Boots, and More ODM’ Rods including the NEW Jigster Rods. I’m expecting even more next week as we get ready.
