    At Lacey Marine, they are getting good reports on the bluefin tuna. Regular customer Ed Plichta checked in with a nice bluefin. Bay fishing has been producing around the Research can area, the channel edges of Oyster Creek Channel and the Inlet area. Outside Garden State North has been the better spot. Light bucktails tipped with gulp and killies have been the go to bait. Blues are hitting metals and plugs around the inlet on the incoming tides with the cooler water.

    At Lacey Marine, Joey said fluke fishing is in full swing in the bay. Some keepers are also being taken by those who are fishing in the ocean, when they are fishing structure. Nicer fish in the 5-pound range also are not uncommon. Hot lures for these fluke include bucktails in chartreuse and white or pink. The 6-inch Gulp grubs seem to be pulling the bigger fish compared to the usual 4-inch swimming mullet. Bluefish are still around in large numbers in the inlets and channels early morning, with 2- to 3-pounders nailing small metals and plugspoppers. They make perfect strip baits for fluke! Crabbing has been hot lately with full bushel baskets hitting the dock. Bunker on hand lines in 3 to 5 feet of water with a muddy bottom seems to be most productive. Overall, there's a lot of action in the bay and plenty of things to keep anglers busy.

There are some fluke being picked up at the Tires and the Garden State North Reef as well. Bluefish of 2 to 3 pounds are biting in the inlet, hitting metals and plugs, and crabbing has been very good on the west side of the bay in 3 to 5 feet of water. He's heard of a few reports of blowfish and weakfish but nothing consistent.

Fish squid, spearing or Gulp on a tapdancer or a floating jighead on a moving tide. Bluefish are biting ponytails and plugs trolled between the BB and BI buoys. Sea bass fishing has been good at the local wrecks and piles like the Tires and the Garden State North Reef. Klam Kuts (stop in and ask Joey), salted clam and squid all are working for these fish. Crabbing has been very hot in 4 to 6 feet of water on the west side of the bay.
