LBI Fishing Report May 21st

Hard onshore winds have dominated the past two days but anglers got out and fished. No spectacular reports but anglers are catching both on the beach and boat.

Here’s some reports from customers…

Adam McPherson from Buck County, PA reported a good time fishing the inlet yesterday. He said the blues were chewing plugs all afternoon.

Ed Sisson sent in this report, “Yesterday was non-stop off the south end surf. 13 blues up to 32 inches, 1 flounder, a couple of sharks all within two hours. Tried plugs and metal but no takers. They only wanted the meat! Only bunker was working for me.

Pat Schaefer from Levitown, PA got a 16lb 2oz striped bass off of the mid-island surf on bunker. He caught it fishing the late night shift.

Kevin Worthington and John Wilson of Orefield, PA fished the night shift too. Kevin got a nine pound bluefish and John got four (various sized) blues. It was best at the top of incoming. All on fresh bunker.

Just a heads up we just got in a fresh delivery of bunker so there are primos here for the anglers that want to chunk. We also have live eels and live minnows. There’s no telling when more clams will arrive.
