Weekly Update (June 4, 2017)
It is going to be a tough week this week, across the board. Persistent NE winds for the entire week are going to keep all but the biggest boats 'inside' and make life miserable for patrons who can get 'outside'.
That makes Fluke the number one game in town this week. Focus on the back bays and rivers, it will produce some flatties. Don't expect any lights out fishing, but at least you will be able to bend a rod.
Stripers are going to love this week's weather set up. Still getting to them by boat is going to be very difficult. If you are a beach or jetty jock, then this is your week. Get out your surf pole and some bunker heads and you have a chance at some real big fish coming along. I will also mention that a persistent NE wind is known to push the Stripers back into the bay. It would not be surprising to hear some really big fish coming bayside this week. Suggestions on targeting bay fish -- Set up on anchor with clam and chum.
Bluefish do still exist in the bays but in decreasing numbers. Probably not worth targeting at this point but if you see some bird play, jump in.
Finally, I will mention in anticipation, this blog was going to focus on Shark this week as we are rounding into prime time season. But given the weather set up, don't expect any activity this week. Will take a closer week next week.
