July 21, 2022 Weekend Fishing Forecast NJ/DE Bay Region
The Fisherman’s Jim Hutchinson is reporting from the floor of the convention center in Orlando, FL for ICAST where it’s just as hot, hot, hot as it is back at home. Produced by the American Sportfishing Association, the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades or ICAST is the world’s largest sportfishing trade show. We’ll have more on that coming Monday, July 25 and every week from that point into 2023 as The Fisherman brings you the details on the latest new gear and apparel from the world of sportfishing. In this week’s report, we run down the latest fluke action with tournament updates at the Jersey Shore, sneak out to the midrange grounds for a look at the tuna bite, and head up to the Pocono’s for a freshwater update. Back at the Jersey Shore, surfcasters should take note of the latest issue for beach buggy access, seabeach amaranth grass species. This “endangered” plant species has been popping up on Ocean County beaches in recent years, prompting the US Fish & Wildlife Service to request of some towns (including Brick Township) a limit or suspension on beach driving. If it’s not the plovers, now it’s the clovers! We’ll be covering this issue at The Fisherman more in-depth in the coming weeks.
