LBI Fishing Report Update – May 14, 2018

It’s Mid May and the some bigger fish are showing up!

Store staffer Blake was on the surf this morning and got a nice size bass on a wood swimmer. Here’s a link to the landing video.

Here’s a bluefish caught by Matteo D. of Magic Tail Lures. He was in the bite fishing with Dante yesterday.

“I finally put a reel on a rod yesterday and hit the beach. I didn’t see a sole for 8 miles. Bite was on! 20 bass from dinks to 40” and 10 blues from 3-8 pounds. All out bucktial bite, 1oz white with a curly tail. Why does no one fish anymore? Get to Fish Heads and pick up some Magic Tail bucktails and get on the beach. Stop waiting for the reports the fish are out there.  Here’s a video from sunday afternoon.

Now that’s a nice bass! Here’s Dante of Magictail Bucktails with a quality striped bass that ate a 1oz white bucktail jig.

Kenny Nielubowicz was on the beach yesterday and caught his first surf striped bass. “Thanks Fish Heads for the killer fresh bunker!”

Congrats Kenny on your first surf caught striped bass!
