Fishing Report

June 17th

This was an EXCELLENT week of Fluke fishing! We had too many weigh-ins to mention them all however, the largest tipped the scale at 6.37# & 26". This fish was caught by Fred Carbonara from Philadelphia drifting minnows behind Townsend Inlet.

Also, the kingfish are starting to show up in the surf with several being caught using bloodworms on a small top & bottom rig.

Bluefish and stripers are still being caught throughout the back bay however, the striper action is better at night as the water temps rise.

Finally, this is a GREAT time to go crabbing. Many people are reporting LARGE JIMMIES coming from the local public docks. They are using both bunker and chicken to bait their traps.

We are now on our summer hours as follows:

Monday thru Sat 6am-8pm

Sunday 6am – 6pm

Freds Fluke
Frank Busch Fluke
Dar Weavers Fluke

The rod I bought today is awesome. Very light compared to the ugly stick. My friend Paul who was with me today caught two very large blues under the big bridge coming into town both on the mullet we got at your shop. Maybe come back tomorrow and try again. Just saying thank you for always being so nice to us. Rich M.
