LBI Surf Fishing Classic

Day 35 is off to a good one with an active day for the LBI Surf Fishing Classic. Angler are catching fish on the beach.

Here’s the low down… Wind is cranking and the surf is churned up and some bass are on the feed.

Chris Masino landed his new personal best today off the south end surf. He currently hold the lead in the surf derby. Chris stopped in for fresh bunker this afternoon and while here shared this report. “I hit the surf early this morning. Lost one fish at day break. About a half hour later released a short. Then another one. Things slowed down but I fished out my bait. I was about to leave and the rod went down. Turns out it was a really good fish!” Chris is back out on the beach looking for a 50! He said eight ounce of lead was holding. We can only assume these requirements went up through the day.

Chuck Kortman checked in a 36.25″ 15.1 pound that he caught chunking bunker on the surf this morning. John McHenry got a 34 pound bass, bunker surf. John Campbell got a 13 pounder on bunker.
