"Bucktails with Gulp! for fluke in the surf," recommended Grumpy hisself from Grumpy's Bait & Tackle, adding that a 3 inch or 4 inch Gulp! Swimming Mullet as a teaser will pay fried fish sandwich dividends. John Kotlowski Gulp!ed an 8.35-pound fluke. Cocktail blues are showing in the suds and are chomping bunker chunks and mullet and also tarnishing metals. Sharks are being caught at night on bunker. Snappers are all over the bay and are nipping spearing baits. The bayside blowfish 'n blue claw bounty continues.

    According to Grumpy hisself from Grumpy's Bait & Tackle the after dark shark fishing along area sands is as hot as the daytime temperatures, with a fresh bunker chunk on a GBT Beach Shark Rig the ticket for browns and sand tigers. Both must be immediately released. In the mix are drag-torturing cow nose and butterfly rays. Kingfish and fluke are being caught in the suds, the former on Fishbites and bloodworms, the latter with a 3-inch or 4-inch Gulp! Swimming Mullet attached to a jighead or bucktail. Eric Carl and Joe Brown Gulp!ed flatties measuring 18-12 inches and 25 inches respectively, and it was a bucktailGulp! combo that beached a 19-12-inch fluke for Pete Heckly. Squadrons of cocktail blues are patrolling the local surf and are being intercepted with mullet chunks and small metal ordnance. The excellent crabbing and good action with blowfish continues in the bay, and snappers are beginning to swarm.

    "Salted mackerel for shark fishing from the beach at night," advises Grumpy hisself from Grumpy's Bait & Tackle. There are small schools of 1- to 3-pound bluefish prowling the suds, and these are tearing into bunker chunks and tarnishing metals. Sudsy fluke are finding bucktails tipped with a 4-inch Gulp! Swimming Mullet and the squidspearing combo irresistible, and there are few keepers being sanded. He recommends those craving a "Flounder Stuffed with Crabmeat" dinner to first hit the Island Beach State Park surf where the limit is two at 16 inches, then go bayside and get in on the blue claw bonanza. On the local docks Rich Esposito did the squidspearing thing to grease a 22-12 inch-flattie.

    Ray from Grumpy's Bait & Tackle took a breather from re-ordering stock to tell about the decent fluke chew on bucktailGulp! in the suds down through Island Beach State Park and reminds all about the special regulations in the park that allow the keeping of two flatties at 16 inches or longer. The suds continue coughing up good gobs of 2- to 4-pound bluefish that are tearing into bunker and mullet offerings. Brown shark action is beginning to get consistent along area sands. Crabbing is very good in the bay and lagoons, with blowfish catches good and getting better from the Seaside Park dock. Expect a keeper fluke or two on squidkillie and bucktailGulp! around the BB and BI buoys.
