Thursday 9/13

Well I’m back! The boys did a good job while I was gone. I put in a mess of Orders Wednesday so pay attention to our social media pages in the coming days. We’re getting ready for the fall. Looks like the Fishing report page was down a few days but I believe it’s working good now. As expected the weather is keeping a lot of guys home but the mullet run is slowly starting. Heard of some small Blues and Fluke. Remember Fluke Season closes September 22nd! We’ve been getting in a small amount of Fresh Mullet each day by our netters. Hopefully it kicks into high gear in the coming days. Open 430am-10pm EVERYDAY! The fall season is around the corner now.

Monday 9/10

Seems that Ray being away has effected the weather and posting of reports on our page. Intermittent glitches have been messing with posting reports on our main page. I’ll also include them on our Facebook page in case they don’t post. Well, I don’t have to tell anyone that Florence is beating up the beaches around here. A few guys have been brave enough between the raindrops to fish back bay. I haven’t heard any reports so I can’t post them. Several customers have used this time to load my bench with reels for repair or just a deep cleaning during this period of “sporty” weather.

Friday 9/7

Even with that hard south yesterday, we had anglers trying their luck. We had a nice Fluke weighed in but, a number of Fluke anglers were complaining about Grumpys trained Bluefish chopping the tails off their Gulp. Lot of guys catching banded rudder fish also. North wind today with NE coming later will hopefully get the ball rolling. Confidential reports about small Bass in early morning hours on small lures.(you didn’t hear it from me. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Open early and close late 4:30am-10pm everyday.

Thurs. 9/6

Among the fish reported yesterday was 2-3lb. Blues from Marc B. and son Brody on IBSP using metal and he saw another angler catch a Spanish Mack from the inlet. A little over 2 weeks left in the Fluke season. Time to start getting your last casts in for the season. Had another angler come for a spool refill the “something BIG” took most of his line before breaking him off. Mick Martino weighed a hefty 6+lb Fluke in yesterday from a boat. This weekend forecast says it will be cooling down. Personally I can’t wait. A report from a customer—- “the back of the Island is loaded with Mullet”. (maybe This New Moon will start the push).
And as a reminder We open early and ALWAYS close late. Frankie Z.

Wed 9/4

It’s going to be another beautiful day here on the beach. The Bluefish continue to maraud the shallows taking chunks of fresh Bunker, Mullet and small metals. Fluking remains decent. Also, the Inlet has had a little action now and with small Bonito in and out. Once the Mullet start their fall migration look for hungry fish to be hot on their tails. PSA— We received another big order of Capt. Ron’s Insect Repellent in and from the satisfied customer reviews it will always have shelf space in the store. Anytime it’s warm and the wind is from the west at all, HAVE IT HANDY.

Tuesday 9/4

Beach fluking remains good with a nice mix of Blues and a few Bonito and some Spanish Mackerel and small Bass thrown in for good measure. Crabbers should take advantage of the thinning crowds on the docks and bay. Blowfishing remains good by BB and BI buoys, Make sure to chum heavy to draw those delicious critters close to the boat. Bob is busy as usual at the rod building bench trying to get as many rods done as possible for the fall run. Grumpy’s status remains the same as everyone can attest to. I was on the Channel 9 News at 11 last night but, unfortunately getting up early didn’t allow me to watch it.

Summer is hanging on…

Another beautiful day forecasted for our area today. Fishing remains pretty much the same, interesting. On the beach still getting a good fluke bite with keepers weighed in about everyday. Small to cocktail sized Blues, schoolie sized Bass first light-last light with some still being caught midday. Crabs still eating although smaller ones dominating but, we did have a full moon which means a shed. Back bay Bass action heating up with the cooler evenings brings bait schooling up getting ready for the “RUN”. AND, we’d like to take a moment to thank all our loyal AND new customers. Without you we wouldn’t be here.
Thanks, Frankie Z.
P.S. I got the job of reports this week as to Ray taking some much needed time off to spend with his family. (He’s all yours for a week Gia ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Saturday 9/1

Happy September! Weather wasn’t the greatest Friday so we didn’t hear much. More NE winds (No Flies!) Saturday but it’s looking like calmer winds as the day goes on and Sunday/Monday look good. We have everything you need! Hope everyone enjoys their Labor Day weekend. Open 430am-10pm EVERYDAY!

Thursday 8/30

Read yesterday report because nothing has really changed! Fluking was a bit better Wednesday. Lots of fluke right in the wash. Hearing of lots of mullet in the back so lets hope for a good mullet season. Weather for Thursday is warm with light winds. Open 430am-10pm EVERYDAY!
