NJ Fishing Report: May 30 – June 6

Striped bass fishing continues to be hot in North Jersey but reports of fluke have been spotty at best. Some fisherman have been able to put together a nice catch but for the most part it has been very hit or miss. Seabass fishing has been excellent if you are able to push out to deeper water where the bigger fish are and hopefully will remain that way until it closes on June 19th. Bluefish are still around but are not as thick as past weeks. I myself fished the Sandy Hook reef area on Saturday and we picked through a lot of small Seabass to get 8 keepers. I ran back inside the hook and drifted for fluke in a few locations with only one keeper at 18″ to show for it. Hopefully fluke fishing will pick up soon.

 North Jersey:

Fisher Price IV  Atlantic Highlands, NJ :

Captain Derek Bielitz “Fishing has been very good this week with some very big fish being caught with the biggest fish tipping the scale at 47 lbs. We have been live-lining, chunking, and trolling spoons when the fish are scattered. We have been averaging pretty much 10-20 bass per trip with only 1 or 2 slower trips.   We still have a few available openings in June so if anyone is interested in getting in on the striped bass fishing, give us a call at 732-861-3394 or email Captderek1@yahoo.com.”

Captain Brian Williams  “Finally with a break in the weather for the most part and stable conditions, the fishing improved big time. The flounder bite has been great with a lot of action and a mix of throwbacks and larger size flounder holding deep in the backbays gorging themselves on everything from calico crabs to white perch and spearing. Striped bass fishing has been good as well with a mix of resident and migratory fish up on the flats and nearby deep cuts willing to annihilate any topwater or subsurface offering pulled by them making for some awesome visual strikes. Water temps around 70-75 on the flats/ 65 ocean. To book a trip call/email Captain Brian 856-371-4346 or Bwilliams@ocnjfishing



Time Out Charters Absecon, Nj

Captain Scott Newhall  “The good news in the Atlantic City waters is that the fluke bite picked up near the week’s end.  It’s not what it has been in some other early June’s, but much- improved catches were definitely seen.  Anglers using Berkley Gulp! baits are scoring best on the incoming tide and around the slack high.  Falling water is fine unless the dreaded snot shows. Gulp swimming mullet, nemesis, and shrimp models are scoring big time in all the colors. Striped bass have made a decent showing along the beaches and Atlantic City jetty system. Call Absecon Bay Sportsman, Riptide Bait and Tackle and One Stop Bait and Tackle in the area for solid land-based information in real time.  Trollers continue to score rogue cows with Bluewater Candy Mojos and Tony Maja Bunker Spoons.  Anglers that can send out a spread including both cover it all.  And don’t forget the snag hooks for nervous bunker pods”  To book a charter or check availability with Captain Scott call 609-385-3729
