LBI Fishing Report May 6, 2017

Rick Ziegler stopped in yesterday and picked up his prizes from the past Fall Surf Fishing Classic. Rick was the Bluefish Grand Prize Winner. In addition to the $1000 prize, he was awarded a Penn Slammer III Spinning Reel matched with a custom 9′ rod, a plaque and a Fisherman’s Headquarters $200 Gift Certificate.

Rick stopped back today and shared a report, “I love the new setup! Went up on the beach early but it was a little weedy. Made the shifted over to the bay and got ’em.  The south end bayside, blues all morning on bunker. Whipped out an SP and got bit. ” Here’s a photo from Betty from PA who was fishing with Rick.


A number of anglers loading up on fresh bunker and chunking the surf. Similar theme from all those who reported back… blues on chunks, occasional bass. It seems today is a little slower than the past couple days but there are fish being caught.

Blue claws crawling and chewing lagoons and bay. Those soaking bunker are catching.
