LBI Fishing Report – March 6, 2018

We are happy to share our first winter flounder report…

Lots of calls asking, “How’s the winter flounder fishing?” Unfortunately we did not have information to share until now. Today we got our first…

Dustin Sherman stopped by the shop this afternoon to grab some chum logs. While here he gave us a little info. “I enjoyed the morning fishing the bay. Lots of sun and no wind made for a good session. Best of all some winter flounder are biting!”

Dustin reported catching some flatties fishing the the mid-island bay. He chummed ’em up with a clam log and soak some baits. He mentioned, “The action died at the top of the flood. The morning’s incoming flow was best.”

LBI Surf Fishing News:

Lots of people asking but right now this is all we can share.

The Long Beach Island Spring Surf Fishing Tournament will be from April 21st to June 24, 2018. This year will be the 17th Annual Spring Tournament, but will not be called “Simply Bassin'”. For 2018 it’s The Spring Derby! Similar format but due to popular demand we’ve added the Bluefish Division. Top Three Striped Bass and Top Three Bluefish Win Cash! Registration is still $20.

Stay tuned for more details. The information will be shared once all is finalized.

Time For A New Fishing Reel?

Looking for a great quality reel that is water resistant, has a powerful drag and solid gearing? Take a look at the Tsunami Sheild Fishing Reel Series! They are a great affordable ($99-119.99) saltwater spinning reel with sizes ranging from 3000-8000. Check out our recent post on Instagram (@fishermansheadquarters). The 8000 shown was recently a new size that was released and already a great seller. Holding almost 400yds of 50# braid it is a perfect match on a Tsunami Airwave Elite 10’6″ or 11′ Surfcasting Rod. Any one who questions the new series… You can rest assured these reels are a great buy. The crew here at Fish Heads fished a couple last summer and this past fall. In the summer we had the drags screaming on fat brown sharks. We also continued as the year progressed catching quality striped bass and big bluefish. We have nothing but great things to say! Best of all these reels are some of the few that have the option to fish bail-less. We have the Tsunami Shield Bailless Conversion Kits here.
