October 15, 2018:
Over at Fin-atics Ed says that the local scene is that of some smalls as water temps are still 70 degrees and above, and lots of small blues, sea bass and togs are mixing it up on the local structure. There has been good action on the 9th Street jetty and Longport Pier, and a few triggerfish and a sheepshead or two are still hanging around inshore. Out front on the sands are more little bluefish, and anglers who don a dozen bloodworms are seeing some nice catches of kingfish as folks wait for that cooler water and a bass bite.

    Over at Fin-atics Ed said local anglers have been dialing in on the bass and the bridges have been giving up some liners as folks drift some fresh mullet or peanut bunkers. There have been a couple keepers caught amongst a lot of schoolies. The surf hasn't seen much action on bass just yet, but kingfish are out there mixing it up with, yes, cocktail blues. The shop also reports some phenomenal crabbing back in the bay.

    Over at Fin-atics Ed says that there are a few good things going as anglers "transition into fall fishing, and there have been a few keeper bass caught around the bridges with "all the smalls." There are plenty of snapper blues and kingfish around, with the kings mostly hanging around the inlet mouths and on the beaches. Ed tells of lots of mullet in the area, and this will hopefully get things going. Ed also reports that crabbing is ridiculous and lots of jumbo Blue crabs are there for the taking.

    Over at Fin-atics Ed says that the flounder kind of ended in the back bay as winds kept folks from going out front, unless they were crazy. Those who did pound the back waters found some good flounder action, mostly in deeper waters. The bass have made a good showing around the local bridges and anglers are on it; peanut bunker and mullet are the fresh baits of choice. The surf is seeing good numbers of sizeable kingfish, and a few sharks are hanging around, but they too are high-tailing it out as waters cool off.

    Over at Fin Atics the report was not much fishing to report due to this past weeks inclement weather. The seas have been rough so there are not many reports of off-shore fishing. The back bays are still going strong with fluke and small blues still giving anglers some action. Likewise crabbing is still going strong in the bays, so keep those crab traps handy!
