Lighthouse Sportfishing Barnegat Bay Report

Was out Friday evening and Saturday morning.  Friday I had  Debbie M on board the Debbie M for some evening fluking. We caught the last of outgoing and the beginning of incoming. It was kind of strange but the current never went slack around low tide. It was going one way and then just started going the other.  We had solid action with fluke but no keepers. At one point I was trying to tie a rig to fish the second rod and it just could not do it because I was busy landing five fluke one after the other.  Saturday I had the Frank Sutton group on for a quick bluefish and bass trip.  They landed a handful of bluefish to about 6 pounds but no bass.  With incoming tide around 58 deg thought we would have landed a few stripers. Guess they were waiting for Sunday morning tide if you know what I mean. Attached is a picture of Frank with his 13-year-old son will. With school ending Thursday, I will be available 7 days/evenings a week.  In addition to charters, I will be launching (get it) my new LBI eco-kayak tours through the Long Beach Island Foundation of Arts and Sciences.  I hope to be up and paddling by the end of this month. The planned two-hour destinations will be Clam Island in Barnegat Light and Bonnet Island in Ship Bottom. With close to 40 years on Barnegat Bay and a true passion for the environment, it makes sense that I should start sharing all of the marvels that Barnegat Bay has to offer.  Whether you want to get out fishing or on an eco-tour give me a call.

Screaming drags,
