LBI Fishing Report May 1, 2023

Striped bass fishing continues and bluefish have come on strong. May is off to a good start and our expectations are for a great month ahead with bass, blues and fluke! Here’s a quick May 1st Fishing Report update for the Long Beach Island area. Remember NJ Tog fishing season closed at the end of April BUT NJ Fluke season open tomorrow May 2nd! Not only are the big three (striped bass, bluefish, summer flounder) here right now, but also weakfish and black drum. Anglers have recently caught all five of these species in the surf, inlet and bay. Now’s a great time to get out fishing!
