Hi Flier Open Boat Trips

Bluefish are still holding up strong on the west side of the bay. Casting topwater lures at surfacing fish under birds has provided most of the action. 

As soon as you find a few terns picking and diving it’s been great action on light spinning gear. Throwing lures at the inlet jetty is also producing blues with a few stripers in the mix. We will be floating sandworms into the jetty to try and increase our odds for a bass but you have to fish through the blackfish to get them. We are starting to catch some fluke on the channel edges and back bay, as well. When the ocean is calm we can also run out a few miles to the reef for sea bass.

The water temp hit a high of 74 degrees in the back bay over the weekend which would explain this big Houndfish that crashed Dennis Cornfield’s topwater lure while we were catching blues. He missed the lure and got snagged which made for a dicey release boatside. If you hook one of these giant needlefish, they average 3 feet plus around here, be careful, they have a lot of sharp teeth. 

Running Open Boat or Charter: Wed June 12, Thurs June 13, and Fri June 14, 7AM to 1PM. $200 person. 4 people max. All fish are shared.
