New Jersey & Delaware Bay - Delaware, Maryland & Chesapeake Bay Fishing Reports

NJ/DE Bay Region Fourth of July Forecast

The Fourth of July weekend has arrived, and so too has the July edition of The Fisherman. Get a peek inside the New Jersey, Delaware Bay edition for a tactical approach to topwater yellowfin as well as a deep-dive into plugging bigeye and wahoo on the troll. We have a giant bluefin just under the NOAA “trophy” closure out of Manasquan, while mako shark action is still in place as of this morning due to a slow-moving bureaucracy in DC. Get a comprehensive look at the holiday weekend fluking opportunities with a 12-pounder and at least one other “Dream Boat” fluke from Raritan Bay. Spanish mackerel are snapping along the Delaware Coast, with sheepshead reports intensifying from throughout the South Jersey region. Wherever you may be fishing the New Jersey, Delaware Bay this weekend – or even if you plan on heading out to the Pocono’s – we’ve got you covered in our Independence Day weekend report from The Fisherman Magazine.
