In years past the nasty bay water was driving solely by heat which made the bay produce its own bloom.  Soon after we had massive kill off of peanuts almost everywhere.   With the way the water has been looking I think we're not too far away from this in my opinion. 

Got home from work yesterday and noticed the water has a moldy green/brownish color to it.  Looks like a bloom is already happening at my house.

Same -  I hit up a different bay beach with my daughter multiple times a week.  In every spot the water is nasty looking and I don't think you can see a couple inches into it.  Just this morning I seen some floating peanuts -  I wonder if they are starting to be choked out.

Was the water looking like this out back or in front.   It always seemed to me that NJ water always had a dull green tint to it, but I have never seen bright green before...

Went out on Monday at my usual Moco haunt.  Triple skunk!

 

Was out front and found a nice sport near some jetties where two people were fishing.  Was hoping to try for Kingfish for the first time.

 

I got tangled up in mussels in every cast!

 

I hate braid!  spent close to an hour untangling from the mass of thready mussels and other people's lost line and lures.

 

Someone did mention the benefits of watching out for the bikini selfies!  Oh yea!  Wish I was 40 years younger!

 

 

Out back an elderly latino told me, no one was getting any bites at all the whole day.

Tuesday water was stained in the back but nothing out of the ordinary. Wednesday out front mid county high tide it was that real bright green with orange slim on the rocks. There was also a lot of junk floating in the mix.

Hit a SoMoCo beach with the family tonight from 7:30 - 9:30 and brought the 6.5 light rod with 6lb braid and 1000 Daiwa Laguna LT.  Took a 40-minute walk working the lip with small rapalas and 1/8 oz bucktails tipped with Gulp.  Missed a nice fluke right at the lip on the 3” blue Rapala.  No other touches.  Water was super clean with decent little waves.  Lots of kids out on foam surfboards.  Great evening to get some cool ocean air.

It wasn't bad where I was out front MoCo on Wednesday.   Hopefully it was just a localized slimy spot.   Tons of peanuts where I was ...

NoMoCo out front this morning 0700-0930. Beautiful morning. Clean water. Small surf. Lots of life in the ocean. Several schools of bunker were splashing about 100-150 yards out and spread out over 1/4 mile or so but didn’t seem scared of much except for a few birds picking them off. I went for fluke. Caught two cownose rays and 15 fluke. Unfortunately, the biggest fluke was 16”.  About an hour into my morning I was keeping an eye on the bunker when I noticed a pod of dolphins rapidly approaching from the south. I’ve never witnessed them traveling at that rate before. I wish I had the wherewithal to start recording with my phone cause they started obliterating the bunker. Many of the dolphin fully breached the water. It was awesome! After a few minutes they continued north. After another hour I saw the bunker to my north getting demolished by something. I assume it was bluefish but some of the splashing reminded me of an Albies blitz. They were too far out to cast to. Is it too early for albies? I started catching them last year at the end of August into September.
