LBI Fishing Report Update June 14th

The story remains the same so this report update will be short and sweet. Long Beach Island has a lot to offer those who want to get outdoors and enjoy the water. Crabbing, clamming and fishing are all great. Get out there!!! Here’s the Fishing LBI Fishing Report Update for Sunday June 14, 2020.

The bluefish action continued into the weekend with an abundance of smaller sized fish. There’s some larger ones but few and far between. Nothing in the double digit range that we’ve heard about.

Here’s a 9-lb bluefish that was caught by Brian aboard Fish Heads Charters with Captain Greg on a recent trip. They also caught a couple health striped bass.

Kingfish, Striped bass, black drum and fluke were all caught off of the LBI surf this weekend. One customer reported 47 kingfish Saturday! Another angler reported catching more than a handful and said, “Two were bit in half.” With the warming surf temps the sharks have arrived.

Rick Zane reported, “Finally this week the LBI surf has broke and stayed above the 60 degree mark. Even after the southerly blow. It was 61 degrees on Saturday. I caught a couple short bass recently but can’t find a keeper.’

Threshers have made their presence know for a couple weeks. More recently the sand tigers with bite offs. Sandbars will show soon if not already.

Fluke fishing is strong with anglers catching in the open areas of the bays, main channels and out front. Yup! We already got an ocean fluke report. Expect this to improve over the coming weeks. Here’s Ryan DeGennaro with a pair of nice fluke he caught with his dad Chris on Saturday.

“We canceled out tuna trip due to the morning’s wind, but used the wind to drift for fluke.”

The midshore tuna fishing game is on! Get out there!!!

Here’s Chris O’Neill with a tuna that he caught fishing the midshore grounds on Saturday.

Here’s a boat load of tuna caught by the boys aboard the Reel Innovation this weekend.
