Waterfront Marina

September 24, 2018:
Sean at Waterfront Marine reported that folks didn't get out in numbers to the reefs last week, but those that went for it caught some keeper flounder. Inshore, anglers fished out the back bay on Saturday and caught a few more keeps, but no crazy bite was had inshore. One angler reported a couple albies that he caught from the suds, and another reported in with some weakfish and a redfish, both caught from "the docks of Margate." Small blues, of course inhabit all inshore waters, and crabbing was at a season high, as expected for this time of year.

    Saturday saw some striped bass caught in the surf and the back bay, said Sean Reilly at Waterfront Marina. Anglers fishing the sod banks not only had a few stripers they also had some tog and small blues. Some tog were also being caught off the piers prior to the blow and picked back up once things started to settle down. Some good catches of white perch are also being taken fro the Mullica River. Sean also mentioned that some mullet have started to move into the ocean and there are plenty of peanut bunker in the wash as well.

    Sean at Waterfront Marine reports that those fishing out front were on the flounder, and some good fish came in with anglers, at least until the blow shut fishing down and limited folks to inshore stuff. A few keeper flounder have been found around the inlets and out back, with big baits seemingly attracting some bigger fish. The "Nuclear Chicken by Gulp! andor large mackerel strips were out fishing minnows this time of year. Inshore, there have been plenty of smalls like little sea bass, small blackfish and snapper blues caught as anglers slowly begin to switch it up. Lots of smaller togs have been present and Sean says, "The blackfishing isn't like it was last season." However, there is still time, and Sean thinks a run of good white chins inshore is inevitable, once waters cool down a bit.

    Sean at Waterfront Marine reported that fishing out front has been good, and folks are headed out front with every chance they get as some bigger flounders have been holed up on the sang lands. There have been some by-catches of triggers and a few macks, and little blues make their presence known as well. Inshore, there have been some keepers caught in the back, but anglers are working for it and it seems that only those who have been dialed in all summer are seeing continuous results. The kingfish have moved into local waters as well, and shark fishing remains an item on the front beaches, with mackerel and bunker chunks working to hook some bruiser browns.

    Sean at Waterfront Marine reported that there are actually some keeper flounder still holed up in the bay, and those who "stick and move" are putting a few on ice. Fish are beginning to respond well to peanut bunker and spot. The reefs are still giving up good fish, also hitting different baits now, and fresh mackerel strips or spot are your best shot at a bruiser. Words are flowing around of Al Crudele's customer Jeff and a 12.7-pound flatty taken from the bay, reportedly behind Sea Isle. Inshore angling is offering up some kingfish, spot, little blues and sea bass, and tog fishing has seen a few more keeps this week and should improve after the moon and also after waters cool a degree or two.
