Grumpy s Tackle in Seaside Park reported more anglers getting into big blues on both poppers and cut bunker in the bay and from local docks. Capt. Chris Di Stefano reported that Jimmy Herrick got into big blues in Raritan Bay where they never showed at all last spring.
It was a nice day but not many people showed up but we made both morning and afternoon trips today. We fished with clams for bait in Raritan bay. We caught mostly shorts but did have one keeper on the afternoon trip.
This morning, we caught some nice sized blues right away on the incoming tide for about an hour. It then died out for a while and then we started catching them again on the incoming tide. Both plain and tailed jigs, along with poppers, worked best today.
