We really like when we get reports back & pictures make it even nicer. Towards the end of June we had the pleasure of meeting a friendship duo Wayne & Jim. Wayne was kind enough to say these words~Good morning Sue, John & Holden, 
We came to Surf City for a family reunion, but I also came with the intensions of catching some fish.  That's why I call it 'catching' and not fishing.  And all three of you are the reasons we enjoyed ourselves so much on the shores of Surf City catching our different fish after the sun AND moon cooled off in the ocean!  The blues were fun to land and certainly quite different than landing them from a boat 25 miles off shore.  Perhaps with a bit more practice, we could go for their striper cousins!   Jim spent the last 20+ years in Alaska claiming he worked for a living, but we all know he spent years tossing his fishing line into the beautiful waterways of the state.  My wife & I are from Pittsburgh, Pa, and we have been blessed to have put our fishing lines in waters(salt & fresh) all over the USA & Canada at different times. Thanks for your gift of enthusiasm & passion for the sport and for the use of your equipment and cleaning station on the morning after.  We hope to see you next year about the same time when we stop in to see your smiles, check on what's running and pick up the necessities to go 'catching' once again. God bless.  Wayne

If Wayne & Jim are reading this-please know the pleasure was all ours. We love what we do & we are who we are because of you & everyone else who steps through our doors. We are truly blessed. It was so much fun getting to know the two of you. Look forward to seeing you again. Until we meet again, keep smiling & enjoying life, after all each day is another day in paradise!

4:30 PM-  There have been 5 fish weighed in for the Derby today.  Loads of people fishing the beach today.  Most of the fish were on bunker as usual.  But there was a few short bass caught on AVA jigs as well.  Will try and update some specific catches with pictures soon.

8:00 AM- HAPPY BLACK FRIDAY!!!!  TJ Loughran Jr. was in early to weigh in his 36 pound, 4 oz. Bass for the Derby (photo above).  TJ caught the fish last night in Ship Bottom using bunker.  There are loads of anglersw out fishing today. will try and keep you updated as mush as possible.  We have fresh bunker and more is on the way.

Yesterday- Two Bass weighed in for the Derby today including Eugene's 11 pounder (photo above).  A few short Bass also reported.  Beautiful Thanksgiving day on LBI.  

Effective September 1st, the Bonus Program was reinstated, but there have been changes on how to obtain one & what you can keep.  The Striped BassBonus Program allows an angler to now  keep a slot fish 24-28".  In order to obtain a tag, you have to download & complete a 2015 Striped Bass Bonus Program Individual Participant Applicant and Child Support Application. Both forms can be found at & are simple to complete.  You are no longer able to complete this process on line.  Another change is that there is no longer a $2.00 application fee. You mail in your completed form to: Division of Fish and Wildlife Striped Bass Bonus Program  PO Box 418  Port Republic, NJ 08241   You must enclose a self-addressed, stamped #10 business envelope to receive one fish possession permit.  It is suggested that you add extra postage on the SASE d/t the bulkiness of what will be mailed to you from the Dept of NJ Fish & Wildlife. Allow for a few weeks for your application to be processed.
