New Jersey & Delaware Bay Video Fishing Forecast July 11, 2024

New Jersey – Tuggin’ on Rugs & Doormats "The summer wind, came blowin' in from across the sea," and it blew from the south pulling up cooler water from the bottom for a long-period of upwelling at the Jersey Shore. In this week's video fishing forecast for the New Jersey, Delaware Bay region we look at the weather forecast for the weekend ahead to see what kind of changes might be in store for our inshore fluking opportunities. There's another Dream Boat doormat in the report this week, black sea bass is back in play again as of July 1, and spend time on the open beaches looking for a score. There are a number of unique tagging programs going on right now throughout the region to keep an eye out for. Get a freshwater update from inside the pages of the July edition of The Fisherman and with our own Pocono Outdoors Guy from somewhere deep in the mountains, then wrap it all up this week with a look at sheepshead and other inshore visitors, offshore tuna including a solo battle with bluefin on the midrange grounds, and finally a conservation focus on speckled trout, land-based sharks and the pillaging of menhaden off our coast by the bunker reduction fleet out of Virginia.
