Reel Fantasea Fishing Charters – Barnegat Bay Fishing Report – Weakfish right on Schedule!!

This week’s light tackle action continued to be busy and fun with scrappy schoolie striped bass testing our anglers skills and light spinning tackle rods. These down sized bass are ranging in size from 12-27″ but employing our well matched tackle  to maximize the encounter and sport is what really brings the smiles to all anglers aboard this week. All trips continue to  see double digit catch numbers with some of our savvy anglers scoring double digit catches themselves!

Our Last weeks fishing report and season progression prediction  appears to have hit pretty accurately as the season’s first wave of Big Weakfish showed up adding to more light tackle excitement and fun. This is a catch and release fishery [ weakfish]  on the Reel Fantasea as these bigger trout are here for spawning purposes which we are not about to get in the way of.
It’s too easy to allow the season to slip by and wait for warmer/better weather but in reality the season is on it’s own time schedule and continues to progress despite our belief’s/interpretations of weather effecting/slowing season progression. With that being said I’m expecting bluefish to come storming into our bays this week if not here already as it is “their time to shine”!
I have this Wednesday April 18th – Happy Hour Special 5pm – 8pm – $90pp ,Friday April 20 – 7am – 11am and  1pm – 6pm and Sunday April 22 for 6am – 10am. Times can be adjusted to best fit anglers needs. Remember to join us and like us on Instagram and Facebook for latest pictures and reports.
Wishing everyone fair winds and calm seas,
