Tuesday October 13th-
Had a few guys in this morning for Bunker. Will let you know when I hear back from them.
Yesterday- Several small Bluefish in the surf on mullet and bunker. A couple short resident bass reported by one customer in the surf on bait. Blackfish/Tog action at the inlet is still good - just not as many keeper size fish as in the past few days.
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 njfishandwildlife.com & 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.

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!
