Keyport Marine Basin

July 16, 2018:
Fluke fishing in the shallow water slowed down a bit this past week said sources at the Keyport Marine Basin. Most of the better catches are now coming from the deeper water in the upper Reach, they said. Pat Mallaney enjoyed a good bite of flatties to 7.26-pounds while fishing between the 9 and 11 Cans in the Reach. Emma Stout (age 13) caught here first fluke a 4.18-pound fish. In addition we were told that porgies and triggerfish are in abundance, and some big sand sharks are also being caught.

    "It was an up and down week of fluke fishing due to the hot weather," said sources at the Keyport Marine Basin. Emil, who fishes out of the Basin, had the biggest fish a 5.09-pounder he topped a good catch with during the week. In addition we were told porgy fishing is also providing some good catches along the channel edges.

    The good reports on the fluke fishing continued when we spoke with sources over at the Keyport Marine Basin. Boats sailing out of the basin saw a solid mix of shorts and keeper all week with most of the action being only a short hop out of the docks. In addition they mentioned a good uptick in the crabbing along the south side of the bay and in the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers.

    Over at the Keyport Marine Basin we got a different twist on the action. They told us fluke fishing was decent, but crabbing really caught fire this past week. Matt Suchovic bucktailed a good catch of flatties topped by a 6.8-pounder for the top catch at the Basin. Sources here said crabbing broke open about mid week and good numbers of big blueclaws were caught right into the weekend.

    Fluke fishing has been very good and you only have to go a short distance, said sources at the Keyport Marine Basin. The Keyport Flats have been red hot for fluke fishermen. Sam Mel fished their on Saturday and limited out with flatties to 3.9 pounds while jigging with squid. In addition we were told most of the bass fishing has shifted to the evening hours in the deeper water.
