New Jersey & Delaware Bay Video Fishing Forecast June 1, 2023

June Arrives & So Do The Bluefin! A new month is upon us, and we’re just another day closer to the official start of summer on June 21. We kick off this week's video fishing forecast for the New Jersey, Delaware Bay region with a quick look at Memorial Day fluking and the latest weekly edition of The Fisherman available to subscribers at We fix a snag in tristate black sea bass regulations to help get you on the meat this week or perhaps checking in a jumbo for the Dream Boat Fishing Challenge. We’ll bang a big drum, fry up some fluke, and we finally see some solid bluefin reports coming in to Jersey Shore ports, but just how long will the giant subquota last? No matter, there's more tuna action to come this summer, as well as inland “free” freshwater options this Saturday, while the local striper bite continues to impress with monsters still being caught and released.
