June 18, 2018:
Sean at Waterfront Marine reported that the fluke fishing has been satisfactory for those who do their homework and some folks have done well; the areas around Kennedy Park and up near Ship's Channel have been hot for those with the right baits and fishing the right tide has been essential. The bluefish have been scarce, but a few weakies are being caught as waters warm. Sean also reports good fishing out front, with anglers releasing some hefty tog while fluke fishing on the closer structure.

    Sean at Waterfront Marine reported that fluke fishing out back in the bay has been satisfactory and those drifting the back waters are doing well as flounder to 5 pounds are being found. The bay is also seeing some decent Weakfishing as anglers get out and float some shedder crabs, and bloodworms getting the attention of the trout as well. Bluefish are in and out, and some are sizeable in the 6- to 8-pound range, with fresh bunker chunks getting their attention. Bass fishing hasn't ended just yet but it takes a bit of work to find that keeper, with bunker chunks by day and plugs or plastics at night.

    Sean at Waterfront Marine reported that fluke fishing around Somers Point started out great and is still solid as anglers ripped it up over the weekend, finding some limits and some nice fluke. Fish to 5 pounds have been caught and this week looks to be the same as weather looks like it will actually cooperate for two weeks in a row. The beaches are still giving up some bass, with a few keepers in there, and some kingfish are now showing up as anglers use bloodworms to get them hooked. Small blues are also filtering in, bringing with them some nice weakfish, with shedder crabs or bloodworms getting the attention of the leery trout.

    Sean at Waterfront Marine reported that there have been a few keeper bass still coming to the scales, though they have slowed a bit. The fluke fishing was okay for the opening weekend and those who marked those flounder they had to release last week found a few, and some keeps were caught. There have been some quiet reports of weakfish at night, but nobody has seen many yet. Bluefish are in and out of the local inlets and have been running from 1 to 3 pounds with a bigger chopper being reported from time to time. Out front, the sea bass are large and in-charge on the O.C. And GE reefs, and boaters are coming in with limits good sized humpbacks to 3 pounds and over.

    Sean at Waterfront Marine reported lots of decent action around Somers Point and there have been some sizeable bass reported, caught over by the pier and off the rocks. There has been a mess of fluke released as anxious anglers await the 25th, some of these flounders being sizeable as well. The sea bass fishing out front has been the real talk of the town, with folks limiting out easily on nice-sized humps. Sean also tells of bluefish schools in and out, and drum reports coming from the pier as drums whack clam baits from Barnegat Light all the way to Cape May.
