New Jersey & Delaware Bay - New Jersey & Delaware Bay Freshwater Fishing Reports

May 6, 2021 – First The Blues, Now The Giant Bluefin

We kick off this week’s New Jersey, Delaware Bay video forecast on May 6, 2021 with footage from the massacre at Manasquan last week as bluefish into the teens raced in and out at Point Pleasant and Manasquan. Reports from throughout the region, from Lewes on the Delaware to Raritan Bay had the Dream Boat class choppers on the prowl alongside those hefty stripers with more weakfish now in the mix as well. But the latest chatter at the docks of Brielle this week is of a 600-pound bluefin tuna brought to scales this week at Hoffman’s by the crew of Internal Fixation. More details on that catch, a look at the leaderboard in the Coastal Kayak Clash, line tips on fluke and more from both the fresh and saltwater in this week’s forecast from Ocean, NJ inside the “coolest, most well-stocked shop you’ve never heard of.”
