Avalon Hodge Podge, Inc.
Dave and I are excited to begin the 2017 season, our 19th year!
This week we saw an increase in the number of slammer bluefish in the surf. The average size fish is still around 8-10 pounds and most are chasing down artificials. Some are still taking bait such as mullet or fresh bunker. Bob Helnick reported several bluefish on plastics around 8 pounds caught off the 8th street jetty. Also, there are the beginnings of weakfish showing up in the back bay. Mike from Avalon weighed in a 19” fish he caught on plastics.
Although the new fishing regulations have not been "set in stone" just yet, we do know that the fluke regulations took another hit this year! If you have not already seen this, Click Here for the full report.

I will link the new 2017 regs on the LINKS page just as soon as they are available. Also check the tides on the links page to plan you next fishing trip.
