Pier 47 Marina

September 17, 2018:
Rick over at Pier 47 Marina said with the winds and rains very few anglers were fishing this past week. However, crabbing was exceptional and several crabbers stopped by the shop and told him how good it was.

    Rick Traber at Pier 47 Marina tells of lots of smalls in the area as cocktail blues, a few spot, some croakers and tons of small flounders litter local waters. "Looks like an inshore week coming up," says Rick as words of a storm float around South Jersey. However, the back bay and surf are holding a mess of bluefish, some small croakers are making an appearance, and sharks are still taking baits as well. Tog fishing has been a downer compared to last year, with mostly small togs being caught and anglers working hard to find that elusive 15-inch eater whitechin.

    Rick Traber at Pier 47 Marina told of decent action for this time in the year and those who got a day on the snags had some good flounders, a few triggers and some sea bass, closing out their seasons on a high note. The reefs are holding some better sized flatties according to Rick, and it looks as though those triggerfish will stay for the duration. The inshore haunts are holding some small togs, and anglers have to work for a 15-incher. Bluefish and kings are in solid numbers in the back bay as well as on the sands, and sharks and rays will take you for a ride if you're chunking out on the beach at night.

    Rick Traber at Pier 47 Marina told of a mix of little blues and small sea bass and such filling local waters and those pounding it out are still finding some keeper flounders in the bay. The inlet waters are offering up some keeper fish as folks get a bit more focused and use peanuts or spot to entice some bigger fluke. The reefs out front are set up with some nice flounders and Rick says, "It will get better before crunch time." The surf is still lousy with sharks and mackerel or bunker will get you a bruiser in the evenings. Crabbing is ok and should improve in the next few days.

    Rick Traber at Pier 47 Marina told of a lot of short fish around and anglers are catching, but only a choice few are keeping, inshore anyways. Rick tells of a good number of small blues in the bay, and anglers are also hooking into some colossal sharks in the process. Short flounders litter the bottom of both bay and surf, with some keeper flounder being caught by those who "stick and move." The reefs have offered up a few nice keepers, and Rick says, "Hopefully winds will cooperate again this week." Rick also relays that crabbing is great for those drop-lining.
