LBI Fishing Report Update – October 3, 2018

LBI Fishing Report Update – October 3, 2018

The bait and resident striped bass continue to offer fun in the bay. Store staffer Jordan fished last night and got two bass fishing Kettle Creek Paddletail Softbaits. Other reports came from the bayside haunts up and down the Island’s west side as well as the mainland.

The bay’s water hold blowfish and weakfish among other species.

Bill Bannon of West Creek was on the jetty today and caught a 5.38 pound triggerfish while targeting blackfish. Word from other anglers up on the rocks is the tog fishing is very good!

Also roaming the inlet; blues, striped bass and the occasional surprise false albacore. Be ready with an Hogy Epoxy Jig (gotta stop in to buy… not enough for website demand) or Deadly Dick Metals for fool the fat alberts!
