Harbor View Marina

June 18, 2018:
Capt. Fred over at Harbor View Marina says that local anglers have all but abandoned the crazy drum fishing and have now mainly started hunting for fluke. There have been reports of flounder up the bay and in the back behind Wildwood and in the inlets, but it's a bit of work to get a limit together. Sea bass fishing is still solid out front, though sifting through shorts is customary currently in the season. The surf is offering up some small bluefish, a few weakies at night, and some junk like dog fish and skates are going to get their share of your baits.

    Capt. Fred over at Harbor View Marina says that anglers are still catching a few drum but it looks as though the awesome drum fishing is slowing just a bit as winds hampered a few trips and some head boats have decided to move on to other things. Small blues are moving into the area and the surf has seen some, along with some weakfish both in the bay and on the local structure.

    Capt. Fred over at Harbor View Marina says that there are two places anglers have been in recent weeks; one is the bay, where drum fishing is at a record high this year, and out front where sea bass are filling buckets, and some are good humps at three pounds and better. The beaches are slow as a few errant kingfish and some small bass and blues are being had. Capt. Fred has the restaurant open and you can stop by and perhaps, "Hash things out."

    Capt. Fred over at Harbor View Marina says that like most others, most boaters are either out front on the reefs catching some solid numbers of sea bass or back in the bay with the drum craze; there have been some 3- to 4-pound humps coming from the Wildwood and Cape May reefs, with double digits of drum coming from the bay. "Day or night, those drum are hitting," says Capt. Fred, and slow reports of some weakies from around the area are surfacing as well.

    Capt. Fred over at Harbor View Marina says that there has been some crazy drum action in Delaware Bay and some boats are coming back with double-digit catches on big drum. The bass fishing has picked up and though there are a lot of schoolies still in the bay, there have been some decent keepers to come to the scales. Bluefish have moved into the back as well as onto the sands and some of the choppers are quite large at 10 pounds and over, but the bigger choppers are spread out a bit. There has been word of a few weakies hitting crab baits, and it looks as though things are beginning to pop. Fred also tells of good sea bass fishing out front on the reefs and reminds folks of the upcoming flounder season on May 25.
