SEASIDE DRUM BEATDOWN

SEASIDE DRUM BEATDOWN
The Fulmer family had a nice black drum bite over the Father’s Day weekend with fish to 40.85 pounds caught on Grumpy’s clams and weighed in at Grumpy’s Bait and Tackle.
Winds and weather woes contributed to a poor week of fishing along much of the Jersey and Delaware coast last week; and as per the latest reports, the cooler water temperatures are also affecting the fluke bite. A few days of actual summer heat should get things heated up as well on the summer flounder front; how about Mr. Weatherman, can we get a little something, something? In Saturday's JCAA Fluke Tournament, tops in the Central Jersey region was Jesse McLean who had the top fish in the port of Manasquan and the largest fish of the entire tournament, an 8.79-pounder weighed in at the Shipwreck Grill. For those escaping wind and rain, you might consider a trip to IBSP while the drum are turned on. In the past week, countless drum of 10 to 40 pounds have been weighed in at Seaside area shops as black drum seemingly have invaded the suds at Island Beach. It’s possible that calicos in the wash are on the same shedding schedule as our local blue claws around Monday’s full moon; if that’s the case, get to IBSP quickly with clam, bucktails soaked in shedder or crab imitations for a shot at a surf boomer.
