FISHING LOGS: New Jersey & Delaware Bay
Southern New Jersey


Posted By Bob Misak, August 7, 2017
"I was sitting on my dock with my first mate Carolyn yesterday and had a rod in the water when George Poveromo came by on the Mark VI a 35' Mako," said Riptide Bait and Tackle’s Andy Grossman. Poveromo, the host of World of Saltwater Fishing was fishing the Mako owner's tournament out of Atlantic City over the weekend and took a moment to talk with Andy before whisking the Mark VI back for southern waters.
While there are still more than a few flatties moving into channels and deeper holes in the back, those warm water temps and the natural migration cycle of summer flounder is pushing both fish and fishermen farther to the east in search of catches. Most of the local reef sites from Little Egg south to Cape May are seeing an uptick in pressure and catches; Ocean City reef site has been left alone in recent weeks but by the time you read this the word may already be out on the action there. While North Jersey once again sees some of the bigger catches, some cash was earned this past weekend with 6-pound class fish in the JCAA fluke tournament with Somers Point’s Tim Fitzick bringing a 6.45-pound fish in to Ocean City and Gibbstown’s Roy Trainer nailed down the Cape May port prize with a 6.99-pounder. Offshore teams looking to areas like the Baltimore Canyon this week for seven-figure billfish opportunities in the White Marlin Open, while jetty jocks in Cape May County are keeping busy with tautog, a few weakfish, triggers and sheepshead, as well as tautog and a few short stripers.
