Happiness is long casts, tight lines & bent rods

« on: May 19, 2019, 10:31:19 AM »

First a shout out to Mike and Chris 2 guys from Pa. that made it out on a beautiful day to be on the beach.  Sorry if I got the names wrong. 

It looks like the changing of the tides is the trick to pick up some spotty fish here and there.  We were out from low tide to the change to high tide and that is where I got a couple of hits.  They were not landed but it was a thrill just to feel that tug.  Now to figure out this years combination to bringing them in.

I tried just about everything except clams.  We tried bunker, mullet, plugs and bucktails nothing seemed to work.

There were no bitds working nd the bunker were no where to be found close to the beach.  Although I was listening to the marine band and it seems like there were bunker in small pods out about a mile and a half to the three mile limit.  That was the target zone.  Boats were hitting some nice stripers out there and it sounds like they were using spoons.  This was from Seaside Heights to the Barnegat inlet.

If you were fishing behind IBSP you probably did okay.  I heard of fish being brought over the sides from Tice's sholes to the BB buoy. Mainly blues as they make their way out thro9ugh the inlet.

Speaking of the inlet it is as usual.  there are waves of fish leaving the inlet so if you get there and no fish are being caught wait a while and I am sure you will be rewarded.  Lure of choice is as usual white buck tail tipped with a white curly tail in the ounce to 3 ounce range.  You need to be close to the bottom.  I know there are some caught on top water lures but the main catch is close to the bottom.

Good luck to all the anglers out for the Governors Tournament today.  It looks like a great turnout.

Next time we will try clams, Oh well its a learning curve but when we figure it out I am sure the curve will change. 

Till next time Happy Catching.
