September 24, 2018:
Dave Showell over at Absecon Bay Sportsman's Center tells of a good week and as flounder season was running down, Capt. Dave had the out and about; with a few exploratory trips, Dave found the bass in the Mullica. Wednesday saw two customers book up and head out, and short fish were all that was caught. However, Thursday was a different animal as Dave and Mark Morris hit up the river with Capt. Showell and the bigger bass responded. The duo had a good day with two keeper bass, a 27-inch slot and a 34-incher, caught on mullet and Gulp! Capt. Dave had a 25-inch slot for the table as well. Friday it was regular rail hugger Mike, and he and Capt. Dave had over 25 short bass, but Mike did take a 3.5-pound bluefish home for dinner.

    It was not a particularly good week in the brine according to Dave Showell over at Absecon Bay Sportsman's Center. Dave said rains and wind kept people away and the winds and rough seas kept most boats in port and no one ventured into the ocean. We got in a Thursday trip to the sod banks and found a nice bit of stripers to 27 inches, which proves there are fish around, he said. A few anglers also braved the rollers at the inlet and picked up some keeper fluke over the weekend according to Dave.

    Dave Showell over at Absecon Bay Sportsman's Center tells of a decent week around Absecon and Joe King's 10-pound flounder caught around Absecon Inlet is proof that some bigger doormats are either moving in or holed up in deeper waters. Anglers did get the memo that winds would keep folks off the reefs, but Rob English got out before hand on the Mary MIV and whacked a nice flatty at 8.15-pounds. Capt. Dave thinks that the reef trips are going to be shortened by this coming week's hurricane prediction and has all flounder rigs and bucktails at 50% off. Dave reports good fishing inland and the Mullica is stacked up with small bass and big perch, and the is ready to go, with Dave holding a mess of bonus tags for fall.

Capt. Dave tells of lots of perch in the back creeks, and he caught a couple himself off the shop dock, for the fry pan. Dave also had a few small blues which he added to his dinner. The Mullica is still seeing good numbers of perch and a mess of small bass are mixing it up. Dave has the and a pocketful of bass tags ready for anyone looking to get a jump on their fall bass fishing and is also having a 25% percent off sale on everything in the shop but bait.

    Dave Showell over at Absecon Bay Sportsman's Center tells of some good action in local waters this past week and anglers are still finding some decent fluke in the back; however, Capt. Showell tells of some changes aloof as back water shedder drifters have been catching some bass. Marco and Joe Jr. have been on the stripers and caught several to 23 inches while on the drift for perch. Dave has also netted his first mullet for the shop and this is a sure sign that September is approaching. Flounder fishing has been steady as well, and Bill Scull had a hot hand as he fished the back with son Don and they drifted some spot for two beauties at 5.5 and 9 pounds, with Bill pulling the hook on a third. There are also some heavies out front and Ricky and his dad were on the snags to bring back a fatty flatty at 7 pounds.
