LBI Fishing Report Update May 14th

So the weekend was a bit gnarly weather wise on Sunday but Saturday offered great fishing. Now that things settled down, anglers are back on them! It’s prime time spring fishing for stripers and bluefish on Long Beach Island. Get in the game!

Anglers fishing the Barnegat Bay report striped bass and blues. They are catching casting and retrieving lures and also trolling.

Sunday was a wash out blowing a gale. Monday wasn’t much better but things started to clear up. Late in the night Monday store staffer Kelley and Swag got out and enjoyed catching bass and blues on the bayside.

Today (Tuesday) is off to a great start. Gio from Philly stopped in late morning for some tackle. He reported the blues were snapping. “It was go good they ripped the hooks off. The Shimano Coltsniper is the Bee’s Knees!” We re-rigged his MVP with some heavy duty VMC trembles so it’s ready for round two.

On the surf there’s bass and blues. Todd Luyber stopped in the shop about 11am and got some fresh bunker. He hit the surf and quickly reported, “Got one on my first cast.” About an hour later he followed up, “Got three so far!” Todd has been hitting the surf consistently and had kept a pretty good run of fish going.

We got word from Brian and crew who got out on the boat this morning and found some bass locally in the ocean. Here’s a photo he sent us.

There’s a good stretch of weather ahead… let’s go fishing!
