April 23, 2018:
At Lacey Marine, Dan said there is good schoolie action in Oyster Creek on bloodworms, soft plastics, and clams with some 30-inch-sized fish mixed in. Weakfish have shown up in good numbers in and around Oyster Creek and are hitting bubblegum Zooms on jigheads. There are scattered reports of blues but nothing like our usual spring blitz yet, he said. Crabbing is good in Oyster Creek and local lagoons.

    At Lacey Marine, Dan said Oyster Creek striper fishing is still very good, with bloodworms, sandworms and white soft plastics all working. There were a few days during the week where it seemed to slow down but it picked back up. Some fish are moving out into the Barnegat Bay more and along the flats. Some blues are being caught in and around the creek as well and any day now they should be invading the bay. Weakfish have shown up locally and are hitting jigheads tipped with bubblegum Zooms and other plastics. Crabbing has also seen a surprising spike in action for this time of year.

    At Lacey Marine, Dan said striper fishing remains solid in Oyster Creek on bloodworms, white swim shads, and soft plastics on jigheads. Schoolies rule but you can find a few larger ones. White perch are hitting the bloodworms as well. If you have killies or grass shrimp, they'll grab those as well. Check the lagoons for the perch. Winter flounder are sucking down bloodworms but chum, chum, chum.

    At Lacey Marine, Dan said striper fishing is still great in Oyster Creek on bloodworms, white swim shads, and soft plastics on jigheads. Most are schoolie-sized but some keepers up to 30 inches have been caught. The rumors of bluefish toward the end of March became verified facts as there were several blues caught last week. White perch are hitting bloodworms, killies, and grass shrimp in the lagoons, Oyster Creek and Cedar Creek. Winter flounder are are inhaling bloodworms at the mouth of Oyster Creek but you need to anchor up and chum heavily.

    At Lacey Marine, Dan said there is a great schoolie bass bite on bloodworms in Oyster Creek. White soft plastics and swim shads are producing fish as well and some bigger fish are closer to the mouth. Winter flounder and perch have been a nice bycatch to the bass. He heard a rumor of a bluefish caught but nothing more than a rumor.
