Blues/Sharks and better crabbing!

Very busy weekend at the shop but not a lot of fishing report info coming in. We did hear of a lot of cocktail blues off the surf and the crabbing in the bay is finally picking up. Snapper Blues should start showing in the bay. We did talk to some sharkers Saturday night that were catching sand tigers off the surf. Trick is getting the baits out as far as you can. As we get info we’ll update our report page. Pay attention to our social media pages for updates as well.

7/6 Saturday

Good pick of cocktail Blues off the surf on Mullet and Bunker Friday. There is a few bass still around. We had one weighed-in Thursday. Few Fluke reported on Gulp. There’s also some Bonito and Spanish mackerel popping up in certain spots but thats been a right spot at the right time type of deal. In the bay the crabbing is picking up. Heard of some good catches in the bay the past couple days. Nothing really on snapper blues yet but the blowfish are showing on the local docks on clams and squid. We’re open all weekend normal business hours! 430am-10pm!

7/4– 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! We’re on normal business hours all weekend and Thursday. 430am-10pm.

Decent amount of life around. In the surf we have cocktail Blues, Fluke, Spanish Mackerel, Bonito, Kingfish, and some Sandtigers in the evening. The blues have been the game in town. Everything has been on either bunker or mullet. They’re ranging from snapper size to 3lbs. In the bay we have some blowfish being reported on the docks and the crabbing is slowly picking up. We have plenty of Fresh Bunker, Salted Clams, and all the frozen bait you need. Weather has been real nice and it looks to continue through the weekend. Just a FYI if the wind goes west make sure you bring Captain Ron’s bug spray with you. We got in a pallet of this stuff yesterday. It’s been unbelievable for the IBSP green flies.

Enjoy the holiday!

7/2 Tuesday– Lots of life around

Amazing amount of life in the area Monday. The ocean was just pristine! We had tons of bait in the surf and the small blues were on them. Adult Bunker and anchovies were reported up and down Monday. Talked to several anglers that told me it was non stop with small blues using mullet and bunker. The fluking was pretty decent as well. There’s also Bonito and Spanish Mackerel in the area. If you want to target them look no further than the Joe Baggs Resin Jigs or the Hogy Epoxy Jigs. We have plenty in stock. We had several Sand Tigers reported in the evening as well. Tuesdays weather is another nice but hot one!….Mostly Sunny. High 89. Winds SW 10-15mph. Heck of a stretch of weather we’ve seen.

7/1 Monday– July is here!

Happy July! The report hasn’t changed much the past week. We have some cocktail blues and Fluke during the day and some sand tiger sharks and rays in the evening. There has been some bonito and blues in both inlets as well during the day. The water temps out from hit 70 degrees so I expect more and more shark reports to come in this week. We have everything you need for sharking on the beach. Crabbing in the bay has been slow but that should change soon. Mondays weather looks great… Sunny. High 83. Winds SE 10-15mph…

6/28 Friday– Fluking getting better! More Sharks reported at night!

We heard of some good fluking along the beach Thursday. We had 2 keepers weighed-in. Seems the fish are real close to the beach so don’t over cast or reel in your jig to soon! Everything being reported is on Gulp. We also had some Smaller Sand Tigers reported by the evening shift so it is now that time! We also have some cocktail blues, in and out Bonito, Houndfish, and Kingfish being reported. There’s a little of everything right now.. The good stretch of weather looks to continue.. Fridays weather… Partly Cloudy. High 86. Winds East 5-10mph.

6/26 Wednesday– Summer Fishing!

The waters are warming and it’s bringing in more summer time species. Not a lot of anglers out Tuesday but we got reports of Cownose Rays, Sandtiger Sharks, Kingfish, Fluke, Cocktails Blues, and Bonito. The water was extremely clear and beautiful Tuesday. We had several anglers come in during the night time hours and tell us about some monster run-offs using bunker chunks. Likely Rays or Sharks but it sure gets the blood pumping! If you’re targeting those Bonito in the area we just got in a mess of the NEW Joe Baggs Resin Jigs. We got them in a bunch of different sizes and colors. Store regular Lou Defonteny reported some good Fluke Fishing on the surf using Gulp and Jigs. We have everything you need for the Fluke! Wednesdays weather looks gorgeous. Sunny. High 87. Winds NW 5-10mph. 

Announcement from the Reel Repair Dept!
As of today we will not be accepting any reels for repair, as Frankie Z. has a knee surgery scheduled for this Friday. He will be finishing his never ending pile shortly. If you still need it repaired, you can drop it off and it will be repaired in order of acceptance upon his return. Thank You!

Monday 6/24

It was a picture perfect weekend weatherwise. We sent a bunch of anglers out both days and the reports were pretty much the same. A few Blues, Bass, Drum , and Fluke. The Fluke fishing is the one thing that has been getting better in the past week. Few of our fluke sharpies have been doing well in the morning hours just walking the beach throwing gulp and jigs. As the water temps warm it should only get better. Hearing of some sharks and rays again especially in the evenings. Once we get into July expect some good evening sharking! Mondays weather…Mostly Cloudy. High 81. Winds SW 10-15mph. 

6/23 Saturday

Phenomenal weather and conditions this weekend. We did get some reports Friday of a few drum, blue, fluke and bass. Nothing crazy but there’s some fish around. Almost everything on bait unless you’re targeting Fluke which has been all on Gulp.  We have 2 days of Westerly Winds so make sure you have your Captain Ron’s bug spray if you go to IBSP. We have plenty in stock! We’ll update our social media pages if we hear or weigh anything in..

6/22 Friday

Basically the same report. Slow pick along the beach. Not a ton of guys out with the storms we had. More reports of Fluke in the wash. That fishing should only get better going forward. We have everything you need for the flat ones! Did hear of a couple Kingfish already which isn’t odd but still a little early for them. Fridays weather… AM Showers and clearing. High 79. Winds NW 10-15mph. Good wind for Friday. Should be more people out Friday. Lets hope for a 2nd push of Drum into the area!
