SUMMER BLUES
Robyn shows off a nice 32-inch bluefish caught at Mathis Park last week on a “Lenny’s Lance-it” snapper rig that she picked up at Capt’n Hippo’s in Toms River.
If you thought the fluke fishing sounded good before, now it’s simply red hot. It’s all anyone was talking about no matter what part of the area you were talking about. This bite is all on the reefs in the ocean and there are enough keepers to make it worthwhile according to pretty much everyone. The fish that have been playing hide-and-seek for a few years (or going back when they were too small to keep) are now the 6-, 7-, 8- and 9-pounders chomping down. Load up a bucktail with Gulp (nuclear chicken and pink shine seem to be the go-to colors) and have a grand old time. The number of folks raving about it means the time is now. Congrats to the Central Jersey port winners in the JCAA Fluke Tournament. The S&S Bucktails team scored yet another 2017 win with an 8.87-pound fluke at Hoffman’s Marina in Manasquan while sweeping the Calcutta cash, with Mike Torelli of Newtown Square, PA nailing the fifth largest fish overall in the contest with a 8.1-pound port winner at South Harbor Marina in Barnegat Bay. Over on Long Beach Island, David Werner of Manahawkin had a 6.72-pounder caught in Barnegat Inlet on live bait brought in to Fisherman’s Headquarters for the win, while Rick Sullivan of Browns Mills nabbed the Great Bay prize for a 6.57-pounder weighed in at Great Bay Marina.
