Harbor View Marina

September 24, 2018:
Capt. Fred over at Harbor View Marina said the back bay has a crazy amount of bluefish and though most anglers didn't bother trying to breach the inlets and go out front, inshore fishing was o.k. Back bay anglers found just a couple flounders to close it out, and those fishing the inlets and out on the beach are still whacking some kingfish, a stray triggerfish and a few smalls like croakers and such. Blackfishing inshore has been slow to take off, but the shop says, "soon, very soon."

    Another place we got a no go all week was at the Harbor View Marina. Capt Fred said hopefully we will get in some sailing time this coming week.

    Capt. Fred over at Harbor View Marina says that the week was okay as most anglers headed out front to get it while they can, and then the weekend winds blew. Reef fishing was knocked down to a minimum and folks were forced to compromise. The back bay has a ton of cocktail blues, and folks have been finding a keeper flounder here and there, releasing a mess of short fish. Flounder Alley up near Fortescue has been hot on fluke, a long trip for most boats. Croakers and spot have shown up in smaller numbers, and in smaller sizes as well. Those fishing the surf are finding solid catches of kingfish, and waters have churned up a bit, prompting some folks to just fish the bay and load up on blues and kings back there.

    Capt. Fred over at Harbor View Marina says that the back bay is alive and well, and anglers are enjoying a mix of some solid-sized kingfish, blues to 3 pounds and a few croakers, small yet. The reefs out front yielded good onoff action as winds dictated trips, but the sea bass season went out with good catches. The local jetties have seen some tog, but most are under the 15-inch minimum, with a few triggers and such hitting crab baits. Fred says, "three-weeks and flounder season is done," and the shop has the stuff you'll need to close it out with a bang.

    Capt. Fred over at Harbor View Marina says that the back bay has an incredible amount of little bluefish roaming around, but these are 1- to 3-pound choppers and are great for table fare. There have been a few weakies in the mix, but only those with shedder crabs and darkness are finding enough action to get at a keeper trout. The reefs are holding some solid fish, and hopefully winds won't give anglers a problem getting out there this coming week. Sharks are still mauling chunk baits both in the bay and on the sands, and kingfishing has slowed a bit but will pick up after this next hot spell.
