Thought the NE wind yesterday might get a few fish to wake up this morning.  Water was in great shape with rolling clean white water.  NW wind made casting into the bigger water easy.  Unfortunately the fish never did show.  Still looking for the fishing and water to heat up.  Back at it tomorrow.

Does anyone here know anything about porgies? Haven't caught any yet and looking to add the species to my list. Thanks!

 

You’ve got a few months until that bite really starts up.  The bay and all the water in between sandy hook and breezy are littered with them in the summer.  They’re pretty dumb.  Bait is a guarantee, jigs are way more fun.

Started the season on a roll. Two fish both would be keepers at 29" and 31" . Real skinny fish that must of just moved into the area . Very aggressive on hit and run  . Both taken in back of the bay on MP SureShot in Bone  . That lure always gets me a bunch this time of year .   Talking to a few yakers and boats . Fish are stacked up with no bait around . Also heard of Warden nailing a yaker with a bunch of fish . Looks like this years trick is to catch one, beach and run back to car to hide it in trunk and go out to kill more . Selfish Idiots . Didnt see it first hand or plate number would be reported to warden . These game wardens are way outnumbered ,any help we can give them might save a few fish .
