CATCHIN’ RAYS

CATCHIN’ RAYS
The influx of big rays, mostly cow nosed, is keeping surfcasters closer to their sand spikes. Photo courtesy of Riptide Bait and Tackle.
The past week was okay where flounder fishing was concerned, and it has indeed been a bit of a windy start to August. A relentless wind blew all week and anglers were finally able to go out front on Saturday, the day of the big JCAA tourney, and some solid flounders were weighed. Some shops in Sea Isle and Absecon bay reported good days on fluke in the back bays, but others reported ratios of 40-1, keepers being scarce. Atlantic City’s jetties keep on giving up keeper flounder, as well as good numbers of triggerfish. The best flounder fishing through August will likely be out front at the reefs, and folks heading out front can also get into a couple sea bass or some triggers to add to catches. Inshore fishing is offering a mess of cocktail blues to two-pounds and a few kingfish and a stray croaker from time to time. The surf is still thick with sharks, rays and short fluke, still a great way to spend a day.
