Barnegat Bay and Inlet continues to offer up solid light tackle action for anglers aboard the Reel Fantasea . Blues from 2-12lbs continue to provide the best rod bending drag screaming action with schoolie striped bass holding a close second to the savvy angler .
With strong SW winds that will surely cool inshore water temps down a bit an up tick in schoolie action is expected. Fluke have also provided action with a heavy dose of short fish but some quality flatties have fell victims to the devoted bucktailers!
The closing of seabass on June 18th is a bit disappointing but will reopen on July 1st with a lower bag limit but still a welcoming visitor to the cooler and add a soon to reopen blackfish season and the “what’s for dinner” couldn’t be any more tastier!
Although we didn’t target or score any weakfish this week there has been a few that have been caught in the neighbor hood so scoring a coveted Barnegat Bay Grand Slam is well within reach!!
I have This Friday a.m and p.m. available for private or open boat and few Happy Hour specials 5-8pm this week [ perfect tidal situation] for those looking jump aboard for a quick hit and run.
Wishing everyone fair winds and calm seas,
