It was an interesting week of fishing in Shark River and Inlet according to Tom over at the Fisherman’s Den. While fluke fishing is still being dominated by short fish, rental boat fishermen are still picking up some keepers and the outlook is encouraging as the water temps are slowly creeping up. Some triggerfish were caught off the rocks at the inlet and this proves the point as they prefer warmer water. Cocktail blues also made their way into the inlet on a couple of occasions. “Boats fishing outside are also starting to see some warmer water temps and better fishing,” Tom said.

“We had several good days of fluke fishing in the inlet and river this past week,” said sources over at the Fisherman’s Den. While rental boat fishermen had to pick through the short fish there were some nice keepers decked on the outgoing water which was warmer than the incoming tide. In addition there were some stripers pulled from around the bridges in the evening and a bluefish or two were also caught. Party boats have been fishing outside and were into a mix of sea bass and fluke. Some also got into the bluefish which had some mackerel and bonito mixed in early in the week.
