Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters – Barnegat Bay Fishing Report 4/23/17

Early Last week fishing wasn’t as easy as it has been , Blue fish were found to be elusive on some trips while others seemed abundant. Both Chunking and poppers scored the blues but not without patience and persistence. But by weeks end we found the blues responding to surface poppers making for some fantastic visual strikes!
Even what has been the most reliable action with schoolie stripers was not without it’s struggles, although we did score them on all trips . On a higher note
Cy Collins score the first keeper striped bass of the 2017 season.
The action should start to solidify more this week as we progress into the last throes of April into May.
I have a few afternoons 4pm -8pm specials available this week [ tide matches up nicely] and both Friday morning [7am-11am] and afternoon [2-7pm] available for either Open or Private Charter.
Wishing everyone fair winds and calm seas,
Captain Steve Purul
