LBI Fishing Report Update – May 9, 2018

Yesterday was a good day and today is continuing on the right track!

Bass and blues reported on the morning’s outgoing tide and still fish here mid day. Mostly of the reports were from the mid-island surf. Reports from Ship Bottom through Harvey Cedars. As these fish migrate up the coast and move into our area we expect them to be stretched out along the entire island’s beaches.

Store Staffer Davey Wavey & our newest Staffer Jordan both got into blues fish off the surf this morning! Dave Werner hit the surf early today and got three bluefish on Daiwa SP minnow lures. He reported another guy fishing south of him was also into some fish!

Robbie Vallone called in this report, “Excellent action right to the bottom of the tide.” These big headed racer blues want to eat. Feed them bunker and get’em fat!

One report from the south end… Jay D. got a pair of big blues off the south end beach on bunker. He also got one short striped bass.

Store staffer Steve and Robbie got into good fishing last night. They roamed some bayside haunts and found fish at every stop. Soft plastics were getting chewed!
