There’s some nice fish hitting the beach! Recent days have offered good striped bass fishing off the Long Beach Island surf. Some black drum are also showing. For a more detailed report check out the last report post.
Yesterday Justus Mirth sent in a catch photo and report, “Thanks for the rigs and clam! I got this 40.5″ right after sunset and also had a 29″ bass earlier in the session. Mid-island surf.”
Yesterday at 1pm Dennis Street weighed in a nice 12# 33″ striped bass. He reported, “A caught a couple and missed a couple fishing clams at low water.” Low tide was at 12:23pPM Today low tide is at 1:06PM.
Emmit from Top Notch Tackle Rigs caught this black drum off the LBI surf a few days ago. In recent days reports of black drum off the surf and in the bay have been good. They love clam!
