Glad some people are catching. First time back out for me in several days. MoCo, out front from 3:30 to 5:15 pm. Decent looking water, outgoing tide. SE wind and overcast sky. Not a tap. Saw one other guy on the beach who got one short. There was one area with beaucoup clam shells. Tons of small sand bug sheds. Hope to get back out early a.m.

I was out this morning sunrise to about 7:30.  Snappers have invaded the beach and there was some fluke around.  Time to switch to the lighter rod.  Seems we really didn’t get a significant run of stripers yet this spring down here OC out front.  Water was a bit cloudy with decent waves however not much whitewater.  The storm last weekend took away all of the points and holes.  There appears to be a small bar and a trough with not much else.

I wish!  They are there.  Been around since Wednesday.  Smallest was 8” and all below 12”.  They are small and couldn’t get their mouths around my bigger plugs.  Pretty adorable as they do all the things the big ones do.  They were “smashing” a small top water plug.  Here is a pic for proof : )

That's a BIG snapper.Regular snappers are smaller.Somewhere between a BIG snapper and a real small snapper.Your BIG snapper falls between a small blue and a regular snapper. It's kind of like grading clams.

Hey i know this is off topic but I have a 21ft center console boat. I first had a slip ever 3 years ago and was not able to use it after my father needed a triple bipass.  He is healed thank god and I wanted to put the boat in the water even though i lost a couple months already.  Wondering if anyone knows of any places that may have a small slip available from highlands to belmar or a little further south.  Trying to avoid paying for a 26ft slip with the rare amount of time i have to take the boat out.

It’s too early to be arguing over bluefish sizes already. :( 

 

skunk- oc front. Good looking water, but no bait and the structure is flattened out as previously mentioned.

Is this the category between snapper and cocktail?  Lol

 

I thought cocktails were 12”+  That picture was the biggest one caught.

Nah, chicken blue and cocktail blue are pretty much the same, different term, same thing.
