According to Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle, the fluking in the surf is on the upswing, with bucktailGulp with a Gulp teaser taking shorts and keepers. Joe Brown bucktailed one that tipped the No Tale Scale to the 4.5-pound mark. Bluefish to 3 pounds are detonating fireball rigs armed with mullet payloads. Beach sharking after dark continues to thrill participants, and big rays are adding to catches of brown sharks and sand tigers. In the bay, expect plenty of fun with snapper blues and blowfish, and the crabbing continues at a hectic pace.
