fishing is picking up Tuesday, May 10, 2016 Over the pass few weeks we have seen an increase in the bottom fishing action. We also have been seeing a good sign of Seabass and that season opens May 23 so get your gear ready for that opener.
Capt. Vinny Vetere, of Katfish Charters in Great Kills, trolled Monday in the ocean from Monmouth Beach to Deal to catch eight large stripers up to 37 pounds on TGT Rattle Spoons. It wasn't on-fire as conditions weren't great with the weather and water clarity not what it should be, but we did see some nice bass caught along the North Cape May Beach.
Capt. Dave De Gennaro of Hi Flier from Barnegat reports The big gator blues are getting more aggressive as the water temp climbs just a little in the back bay. Our last visit there on Saturday kept us jumping with the big blues who invaded our clam slick for two hours but Matt Polito of Phila, PA managed a 14 pound striper in the middle of the bluefish barrage.
