The past week in South Jersey saw a definite increase in the flounder fishing and hot spots like Ships Channel and the areas behind Atlantic City brought forth some flatfish to 5 pounds and better. Anglers are also getting into a few fluke in the surf and with water temps in the mid-sixties to 70 degrees, fish are now moving to waters at 10 feet deep or deeper. Some keeper bass have been found in the rivers and around the inlets, but the back bay waters are seeing the customary late spring run of shorter bass. Kingfish have begun to hit up clams and bloodworms out front as well as around the inlets and small bluefish are mixing it up everywhere. Those who got out front to a reef also saw some increased fluke action, and sifting through short sea bass to get at keepers has become the norm. Crabbing has been upgraded to excellent and those hand-lining are reaping the benefit of god catches of jumbo blue crabs.
