Another explosive week in the 2010 NJ fishing season as striped bass remain
strong. Anglers live lined bass on bunker in early hours and late afternoons
with fish still coming in at the 30 to 40lb mark. Big fish are still here, from
Shark River Inlet, Shrewsbury Rocks and all the way to the Sandy Hook
The Raritan Bay has been invaded with bluefish, schools ranging
from five to ten lbs stirring up huge pods of bunker 2 and 3 acres wide in the
early morning hours. Bluefish will only grow in numbers as the water
temperatures warm and the bunker pods stay healthy and protected by the bay.A
great fish to practice your skills with. This fish is the number one reason most
of us fish today. A great confidence builder.
Fluke Season or Summer
Flounder is off to a good start. Fluke have ranged from shorts to as big as ten
pounds so far and that?s a good sign considering it?s early in the season.
Anglers are picking away at fluke from the Verrazano Bridge to Shark River
Perth Amboy Captain Mike on the Sea Hawk is picking away at plenty
of fluke. Most patrons went home this week with a nice catch for dinner. Captain
Mike had fish up to five pounds. Check out the Sea Hawk and relax after work.

has been an amazing once in a life- time striped bass run and if you don?t get a
bass then settle for a few gator size bluefish, it will do you good. If you want
to relax then bottom fish for fluke, it?s always a good time. Big fluke have
already hit the boards up to ten pounds and we have a whole season ahead. Sea
bass another fun bottom fish with plenty of action for any angler. I can only
hope the fishery remains healthy and I look forward to see what the offshore
bite will be like this year. Over the next few weeks I will be keeping a close
eye on the off-shore reports from blue fin, long fin & yellow fin tuna,
mahi- mahi, shark, marlin and sword. If it?s anything like our striper run,
off-shore anglers are in for an amazing run.
