Grumpys Tackle

August 23, 2016:
Grumpy hisself at Grumpy's Bait & Tackle points to the Island Beach State Park sands as well as the North Jetty as providing good action with fluke, and reminds all of the "Two at 16 Inches" special regulation. The bucktailGulp! Swimming Mullet combo with a Gulp! Swimming Mullet teaser is tasing all sizes of flatfish, but he advises going with the Gulp! Grub when seeking the bigger flatfish. Small blues are in and out of Barnegat Inlet nailing small metals, and along area beaches the nighttime shark fishing remains good to excellent.

    Monday's weather put a damper on the early week fishing according to Grump at Grumpy's Bait and Tackle. Tuesday saw a few blues caught on mullet in the wash and some excellent crabbing in the bay. Wednesday saw the usual summer pattern of blues and fluke during the day and sharks after dark, with plenty of snappers and crabs being caught in the bay. Grumpy said fluke and small blues continued to provide some fish on Thursday, along with some big rays. If you are looking for a fun night, Grumpy suggested combining shark fishing with the Perseid meteor shower on August 11, 12 and 13 along the beaches.

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.

    "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.
